Starting next year, the Super Mario Wiki will see a revamped financial mode, which we've named Free to Peruse. The following explains the why and how it will impact your reading and editing experience.

Why?

We’ll be honest, keeping the lights on has been tough and we’ve long looked at ways to reward our contributor base for their hard work over the years. As such, effective February 29, 2021, the wiki will see a revamped financial structure. Pages will be locked down from viewing and editing unless one purchases a Mushroom (more details below) or sign up for our subscription pass. Wikidollars' can be earned by signing up, logging-in and accomplishing editor challenges. Beanbeancoins is a second type of currency that is more fun and needed to purchase some features. 1,010,101,010,101:1 wikicoins translate to one Beanbean coin but fear not, for you can also purchasse Beanbean coins with real money!

The intent is to provide editors and readers alike a sense of pride and accomplishment.

Subscription plan

As we know our faithful will no doubt jump at the chance to support us, we plan to provide a Subscription Pass. For $10 monthly, you will have a monthly allotment of 50 Mushrooms and free access to the first three headers of the Mario page (As the page is longer than some actual novels, we feel quite justified in asking you $10 to read the remainder).

Also ownership of the Subscription plan is required in order to be elligible for a promotion to any administrative status in the Super Mario Wiki community. Sorry subscription-less rubes, but we have to be sure of your loyalty.

List of badges

Badges will be a new exciting feature core to this revamp. For a modest fee, readers and editors alike will be able to purchase a variety of fun add-ons, ranging from cosmetics to various items that alter the editing and voting experience for when good old-fashioned debating and concensus-building just isn't enough.
