Thank you both, I didn't really want to Join Facepunch like this though, but hopefully I can enjoy the community once this is all over,
—WheatleyGrim; 16th of April, 2015[1]

WheatleyGrim is a user and blue member of Facepunch.

He garnered much attention after user Maestro Fénix, in April of 2015, made a thread discussing them (at the time known as .Greninja) and the situation in his home of Yemen, which is currently going through a civil war since early 2015. Using his intermittent electricity and internet connection, Wheatley would post about the war in that thread titled "The conflict in Yemen: everyday stories from a Yemeni Facepuncher",[2] where he wrote much on the bizarre strangers and graffiti, the short truces, and the obstacles which kept him inside the country. Four years later, after much tribulation, Wheatley revealed that he had managed to depart from Yemen to study abroad in Malaysia.[3]

He also occasionally posts art that he draws, whether it be in the thread or on his various social media outlets, such as Tumblr.[4] He received an outpour of support from the community, wishing him good luck and that he pull through the incredibly tough situation he's stuck in, which he would thank the community for.
