The 'Shroom:Issue 110/Pipe Plaza
Welcome 'Shroom readers to this May edition of Pipe Plaza.
We start with bad news as Time Turner (talk) has been fired from the New Articles position due to not sending his sections in. However, on the plus side a certain interview section has made its way back into our humble statistic centre, so I hope you enjoy reading that!
Section of the Month
Banjo and Gutseh conduct interviews that are held only in the finest of private chat rooms!.
Hello, everyone, and welcome to the May Issue of Monthly Report! Once again, no news on this section, so let's see how the current stats compare to the ones from April!
(Credit goes to Stooben Rooben (talk), Super Mario Bros. (talk), and Viper26 (talk) for the table coding (I based this on Stooben's coding, which was later modified by SMB, myself, and Viper26 when each one of us wrote this section)

Tip of the Month
Having trouble making redirects to games? Most of the time, names of games here are the shortest possible. For example: you probably won't find a correct link to "Mario And Luigi: Superstar Saga" However, I know "Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga" exists in your search bar. If you have trouble with titles, try subbing in that '&' sign and see how it goes.
Poll Committee Discussion
Hey, and welcome to the Foru- I mean, uh, Poll Committee Discussion. Fun.
And wow, did we have some interesting polls this month? (No, really, did we?)

Banjo 'N' Gutseh's Late-Night Actually Legit Interviews
<banjonator1>: Hello, and welcome to the triumphant return of Banjo and Gutseh's [...] Interviews!
Jesus christ. This must be, like, the MCD edition of Pipe Plaza, or something.
That's right, we're starting with the stats again. Unfortunately, the Mario Boards have reached their news quota for this year. See you in 2017!
In April, 191 topics were created and 7918 posts were made. 15 new members joined. The most people online at once was 207, which is the lowest so far this year.
(Bold means new entry and Italics mean inactive for at least the past month. Bold and Italics should immediately be reported to the police.)
Thread of the Month
The first slowly documents Packy's descent into GIF-related madness as a result of the introduction of the like system. Be sure to visit the thread to like every post but his.
The second is a screenshot Let's Play of Super Paper Mario, which offers a very critical (and very funny) look at the game and its elements (especially the story). It's also got a lot of really great extra touches, such as drawings interspersed with screenshots from the game, or extra dialogue.
Thanks for reading.

Hello, readers! I'm your Spotlight manager and Pipe Plaza Director, Yoshi876. Welcome to Retro Feature, a section in which I delve deep into the archives to bring you the best blasts from the past. This time I bring a section from a well-known member: Castle Toad.
Castle Toad joined the wiki on 30 March 2009 and he joined The 'Shroom in Issue XXVIII, which was released on July 11th 2009, writing MK: WTC for the main team. This would; however, be his sole contribution to The 'Shroom, until we got the special issue that was Issue 100 where he contributed Castle Toad's Chatty Throwback, a reflection of past and current Mario memories.
Whilst Castle Toad didn't contribute much to The 'Shroom, he did contribute toward other parts of the wiki. On 4th September 2010, he was promoted to a Chatroom Op for the #userpedia chatroom, and only eight days later he was made an op on #mwchat. He also made a name for himself over on Userpedia, where he was promotoed to the position of Patroller on 7th November 2010, and then to the sysop position on 21st November 2010.
However, you're not here for the history of Castle Toad, you're here to view an old section from years gone by, so today I bring you Castle Toad's MK: WTC from Issue XXVIII!!
The 'Shroom Report
HI, everyone! I'm your diplomatic Statistics Manager, Tucayo, here with another issue of The 'Shroom Report! As a reminder, in the Milestones section, writers will get mentioned every 10 sub-team sections and every 50 all-time sections, teams will get mentioned every 100 sections, and The 'Shroom will get mentioned every 500 sections. All information is based off our Historical Sheets. This section will cover Issue 109.
Goood whatever-time-of-the-day-it-is-now. You have come to the place where you'll find all things Mario Awards.
Let's start of with a general thing that changed. The Mario Awards, the main category, are now numbered with the letter M instead of the A.
Next, several tournament topics have been made on the Mario Awards X board on the Super Mario Boards. In general, tournaments are set to happen in June, July and August. When each happens depends on the tournament, but all will happen within that period.
In below table you can find an overview of all currently planned tournaments.
Meetings' time. The eighth meeting was about finishing the 'Shroom Awards. After that, the motion of changing the A to M for the Mario Awards was accepted and the full review was started.
Refer to this document for a full list of nominees.
Meeting #9 consisted of finishing U7 and fixing the names for nominees in the continuation of the full review. For the sake of brevity, these minor changes in name are not listed here.
Meeting 10 was a continuation of the full review. In addition, Nintendo's E3 plans were discussed, and some discussion on tournaments occurred.
During the 11th meeting, the full review was continued again.
And that will be it for this month. Be sure to check back next month, when new things will have happened. Tschüss!
All information above was correct as of 18 May 2016.
