The 'Shroom:Issue 113/Pipe Plaza
Thank you so much for voting in the Awards. I know we didn't win the overall Best Sub-Team Award, but to have gotten third with only one vote off of Critic Corner is amazing! And we will definitely be aiming for that second spot next year.
Section of the Month
All the latest writers and all the milestones of the current ones.
Hi everyone, and welcome to another issue of Monthly Report!! No news on this section just yet, so it's time to check what has changed in the wiki stats since July!
(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 writing an article on the wiki, be sure to stay objective while you're writing. On the forums or for the 'Shroom is one thing, but when you're working on an article, you're basically writing an encyclopedia entry. Here's an example:
"Peach returns the serve across the court to Bowser, who hits the ball with a Power-Up shot."
"Princess Peach hits Bowser's impossible shot and he hits it back while totally cheating with a Power-Shot."

Projects Seeking Contributors
G'day 'shroomers, YoshiKong here. I would like to welcome you to a new and improved series of Pipe Plaza's Projects Seeking Contributors, a monthly section which summarises the latest projects, collaborations and important discussions which concern the MarioWiki. All readers, regardless of experience or position within our community, are invited to share their opinions and valuable input on the following projects and discussions.
I am making some changes to how the section was written in the past, designed to make it easier for you to quickly identify different types of available projects. We will now organise all projects under three different headers, as presented below. Each header contains a neat table which provides the name of the topic concerned, with a brief summary of what that topic is about and what you can do to help. The sections are further split into projects being discussed on the wiki or forum respectively. Well, here we go!
Projects Seeking Contributors
The following are a selection of projects or special requests which are taking place on wiki talk pages. Please see here for a complete list.
The following have been taken from the Wiki Collaborations forum board.
Discussions Seeking Input
The following are a selection of discussions on the wiki which are in need of input from users. Please see here for a complete list.
The following have been taken from the Wiki Collaborations forum board.
These are long-running projects, areas of discussion or collaborations which are continuously being worked on towards achievement. They will feature in this section every month.
And that concludes the first of a brand new series of Projects Seeking Contributors. I hoped you enjoyed viewing the section. I want to know what you thought of the design and reorganisation in how projects are presented, so therefore I invite all readers to leave me feedback. You can send me a this form (external website). My goal is to continuously improve the section's presentation., or simply fill out
Poll Committee Discussion
HI, wonderful readers! I'm your analytical Poll Chairman, Tucayo, here with the first Poll Committee Discussion of the Seventh Poll Committee! And there are some news to cover; since the last time we talked, Andymii (talk) and I chose the seven members we needed to complete the Seventh Poll Committee, out from the MILLIONS of applications we received. They are:
We have a great combination of experience and fresh ideas and I'm confident we'll have an excellent year! And now, it's time to take a look at the polls we had since last issue's release. (August 14th's poll will be included in next issue since it locks after this issue's release).
Which Nintendo home console controller is your favorite? (Baby Luigi (talk), July 31, 2016)
The "Where are the rules?" section of the FAQ was updated.
In July, 30 members joined - the highest amount so far this year. 169 topics were created and 8915 posts were made. The most users and guests online at once was 210.
(Bold means new entry and Italics mean inactive for at least the past month.)

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 you a section from our Fake News Director: MrConcreteDonkey.
Before I delve into MCD's past with The 'Shroom, there is a small tale I must tell first. Back when I was an unregistered user, and the thought of registering hadn't even crossed my mind I saw in the bottom corner of the screen something called The 'Shroom, now whilst I didn't take the biggest interest in it there was something that grabbed my attention: Should Have Been. I read it and loved it, and waited diligently every month just so I could read the next section. Eventually, I started looking into other sections before reading through the entirety of The 'Shroom's history, therefore it should be no surprise that when I applied it was his sub-team that I first wrote for. Essentially, it was MCD who got me interested in The 'Shroom. So blame him for having to put up with all my sections :P
Anyway onto the man himself. MCD joined The 'Shroom in Issue XLII writing both Fake Characters and Fake TV. He would write Fake Characters eleven more times and Fake TV thirteen more times. But those weren't his only Fake News sections; not only does is he Director of the team he writes legendary editorials as well as a Game Corner section, two Headline News sections, a Hot Records section, four Shop Scouts and a Weather Forecast. He's also dabbled in the Main Team, helping out in Director Elections and End of Year Award sections, a Feedback Survey, the Satoru Iwata memorial, a Scavenger Hunt, a Section of the Month, thirteen Should Have Beens and five Special Sections alongside a Special Travel Guide.
He's also found fame elsewhere, not only is he a Patroller on the wiki, but he's also a Chatroom Operator and a Global Moderator on the forum. Not bad going for someone who registered on 15 May 2010.
Anyway, you're not here to hear about the history of MrConcreteDonkey or me, so instead I'll just have you enjoy one of his Should Have Been sections, more specifically the one from Issue LII.
The 'Shroom Report
HI, everyone! I'm your tactful Stats Manager, Tucayo, here with another installment of The 'Shroom Report! Let's get right to it; as a general 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. By the way, if you encounter any problem in the sheets please let me know in that thread! This section will cover Issue 112.
For the first time since I started writing this section we have a change here. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) has tied Ralphfan (talk) with the most Fake News sections written! And adding this issue (113), MCD has actually taken the lead, so congratulations to him!

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.
Which brings us to the end of this month's Double A News. Thanks for reading, and maybe till next month, or next year!
