The 'Shroom:Issue 112/Pipe Plaza
Welcome 'Shroom readers to this July edition of Pipe Plaza.
Section of the Month
All the latest writers and all the milestones of the current ones.
Hello, readers, and welcome to July's Monthly Report!! Nothing new around these parts, so let's see how July's wiki stats compare to the ones from late June!
(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
When scaling images for articles, you should usually aim for a pixel size of a thumbnail. Anything that's over 200 pixels will overwhelm the text. You can easily adjust your image to be a thumbnail using this coding:
Be sure to add the 'thumb' where you would normally put a pixel size. You can also adjust your thumbnail pixel size from here.
June seemed to bring some kind of surge in activity - 236 topics were created, and 12128 posts were made (the most so far this year). 16 new members joined and 207 was the most online.
(Bold means new entry and Italics mean inactive for at least the past month.)
Thread of the Month
Thread of the Month goes to the thread originally known as if this thread reaches 2500 posts by nicos birthday (july 22nd)..., created by TheFreshPrince. Since then it has undergone quite a few name changes - from "The Melancholy of Nico Yazawa" to the fairly ominous "Death Nico".
As of July 15th, since the thread's creation on June 10th, it has amassed 2941 posts, which makes it at least partially responsible for the surge in activity I was talking about. The thread is also far more interesting than your average Mindless Junk spam thread - there is talk of a mystery hidden within the thread, all set to reach an impasse on July 22nd.
The runner-up award went to Crap, I don't wanna do this, let's procrastinate by Mr. Edo.
The only game currently ongoing is still BMB's Steven Universe Mafia.
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 one of my predecessors: Marioguy1.
For those of you who remember Issue 102 then you know all about the history of Marioguy1. However, what you don't know is some of the history on the section of his that I have chosen. This section is actually still present within The 'Shroom, just with a different writer: me!
Featured is a section that details all about the Featured Articles, including nominations, which ones have been featured and even unfeatured. However, when Marioguy1 was writing it some of them included the Featured Images, until this part of the wiki was phased out. The general writing style for the article was just mentioning what had been featured, unfeatured and whatnot. When Paper Yoshi took over, he organised it all into sub-headings, but this was the only major change. When I took over, I kept with Paper Yoshi's template, before eventually adding in reasons for why articles were being unfeatured or failing the feature process.
Anyway, you're not here to hear about the history of Featured, you want to see how it's changed. So without further ado, here's Marioguy1's Featured from Issue XXXIV.
The 'Shroom Report
HI, everyone, I'm your resourceful Statistics Manager, Tucayo, here with another issue of The 'Shroom Report! I can't help but notice this section is not performing well in SOTM polls, so I would like to know what you as readers want from this section; if you have any suggestions, please drop a line on my talk page and I will gladly take all comments into account. 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 111.
Hello, welcome to Anniversary Announcements. I was going to make an obscure reference in the intro, but I couldn't think of one, so let's go straight into it.
On 17 July, the polls have closed! The results have been tallied and have been sent to the presenters that signed up for the respective presentations. There are, however, some awards that don't have a presenter yet, so if you feel up to it, sign up for one here!
Next on the list are tournaments. A number of them has started or have concluded the first part(s) now.
Let's go over each tournament to see how they roll.
Awards Mafia VI
The sign-ups have closed, but you can still sign up as a replacement. If someone drops out for any reason, you can then replace them in the game.
Guess the Results
Hosts: Awards and Staff
Here you can guess the results of the awards, and earn tokens in the process.
Mario Kart 7
Sign-ups for this game have also closed, and the first round's groups have been posted, and mostly happen this weekend.
Mario Kart 8
Sign-ups closed and the first round has almost been played.
There is no news for this tournament.
The first bracket was posted and played in the past week, with the second one going now.
Sign-ups have closed.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
The first round has been played, with Timmy having the most points at the moment.
The game has started, with DragonFreak and Yoshin currently in the lead.
Now for a quick word
Also, if you don't want to exchange your tokens for prizes, because none of prizes interest you, you have an excess of them or for any other reason, you may also donate your tokens to a special pool, which will then be converted to a monetary value and donated to the Tommy Thompson Park Bird Research Station, where late bureaucrat and friend Walkazo volunteered to study and protect birds.
And with that, we have reached the end of this month's Anniversary Announcements. Thanks for staying with us this long, and tune in again next month. Good night!
All information above was correct as of 21 July 2016.
