Kiwi is a former moderator of the Facepunch Studios forums who joined in September of 2011. Kiwi originally joined Facepunch in August of 2009 with their original account under ~Kiwi~. Kiwi lost access to the account due to losing their e-mail and password attached to it and began using ~Kiwi~v2 as their new main. Kiwi was granted mod status in the beginning of March 2017 under the ~Kiwi~v2 account and was renamed to Kiwi after being made moderator.
Since the 6th of June, 2017, alongside postal, Kiwi hosts Half-Life and Half-Life 2 Deathmatch servers, which are played every so often. This has prompted some native Facepunchers, such as MissingNoGuy and EddieLTU, to provide their mapping talents to create maps exclusively for the server(s).
On the 7th of March, 2018, Kiwi permabanned themself, stating that they needed "to go for a long time," hoping that they'll come back when they're okay. While unexpected to most, everyone is hoping that they'll get better soon.
By 2019, Kiwi returned under the name Taliyah to moderate the New Sites Forum.
