New ACTIVE Users
Though we didn't reach 166 new users this month, we have a ton of new active ones. Here I again list the most active:
The big news this month was of the RareWiki. It was decided that the Banjo & Conker series was of barely any importance on this wiki, so a wiki that has it of primary importance was created by me (or, rather, a Wikia). This follows the Diddy Kong Racing DS report from last month. Although customized and with 90 articles, 72 files, and nearly 20 active users, the RareWiki needs help getting that jumpstart. I'll report on its progress this month.
New created on February 12th is the Trouble Center. Based off of the trouble center of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, users post a request (such as adding a navigation template to all pages related to it, etc.) and another user takes on the request. So far the Trouble Center boosts 21 completed requests, and has helped with mainspace edits greatly.
Otherwise, the wiki has continued to be very vibrant and informative to all. Please keep in mind of the MKDSummer Event – I still want to try to get something down.
Also, today's unofficially Mario Day. The origins come from leet: 1 = i and 0 = o in leet. Take the abbreviation of the month March and combine it with today's date to get Mar10 (Mario). There's various traditions for some people and whatnot, but regardless, happy Mario Day!
One last note... MarioWiki:Anniversary. If the link's red, you're reading the 'Shroom hot off the press, and it hasn't been created yet. If the link's not red, click on it. This big project should be very fun.
Editor's Notesby the Director
Oh boy...where to start today.
For starters, I have only 6 minutes to write this. This is because I'm extremely late in posting this. I apologize to all users eagerly awaiting this issue – you see, I guess I celebrated Mar10 today by playing the Pit of 100 Trials from 3 to 6 in the morning...that left me too tired to finish on-time. That also shows how obsessed I am with The Thousand-Year Door... again, sorry. ;) :P
One of our writers from last month, HK-47, has missed the deadline. You'll see his next editorial next issue as well as a reply to his first editorial. Additionally, Parayoshi has not been seen since he signed up – I'm not sure on his status. Finally, Maxlover2 will do half of "Did You Know That..." with Aipom next issue.
Speaking of next issue: there is some preference to have it on April Fool's Day, which is a Sunday, and just 22 days away. I am willing to have a fun and crazy issue for Issue IV, but I want general agreement among contributors. Leave your thoughts on the idea on my talk page. If you're the first, make a new section, otherwise add a comment in that section. Otherwise, Issue IV will be on April 7th, the following Saturday.
Finally...MarioWiki:Anniversary. When it isn't red, be sure to click. I want as many users as possible involved.
I hope you enjoyed our new Fun Section as well. 'Til then see ya!
–Wayoshi, Director of The 'Shroom
