The 'Shroom:Issue 114/Pipe Plaza
Hello and welcome back to Pipe Plaza! I know I thanked you last month, but in this Awards special it'd seem silly not to thank you voters again for voting us as third best sub-team. As we were one vote short of Critic Corner we have goals for next year. Also, I'd like to thank you all for voting me joint 'Shroom person of the year, it truly is an honour.
Anyway, we have news for Pipe Plaza, YoshiKong (talk) is writing Projects Seeking Contributions (he started again last month, but I forgot to mention him :P), and Alex95 (talk) is our new New Articles writer. There still a few vacant Pipe Plaza positions, so if you want to apply for any of those send an application to Henry Tucayo Clay (talk) and hopefully you'll get the job! Sadly, Paper Yoshi (talk) was unable to write his section this month, but don't worry he will be back next month.

Tip of the Month
When interacting with others on the Proposals page, you should always be respectful. This page is for discussion and decisions, not an edit or flame war. Don't be rude when posting a comment, and be open to new ideas from others. Make sure to stay on discussion as well, and keep in mind the criteria for posting on the Proposals page versus a Talk Page Proposal.
Hi readers and welcome back to the Community Report section. It shows our the latest goings-ons around the Super Mario Wiki – the promotions, the demotions, the recently passed and ongoing proposals.
NOTE:All stats and figures included in this section were correct as of September 8th.
That’s all for this issue of the Community Report. Thanks readers to take your time to read this section and remember to participate to ongoing proposals. See you again in October.
And that’d be it! A lot of pages made within the last month. Excellent! That’s what we want to see! Keep in mind the writing guidelines for new articles when you create a page. We don’t want any one-line articles, you hear?
Projects Seeking Contributors
G'day 'shroomers, YoshiKong here. I would like to welcome you to a new edition 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.
This section of Pipe Plaza is designed to make it easier for you to quickly identify different types of available projects. All projects are organised 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.
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 a new edition of Projects Seeking Contributors. I hoped you enjoyed viewing the section. I want to know what you think of the design and arrangement 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
Hello! This is Freakworld speaking, and this is the first time I'm writing the Poll Committee Report, and also my first time writing a Pipe Plaza section in general. Yay!
Before we get into last month's polls, I'd like to direct your attention to the fact that we have finally introduced the much wanted "Submit a Poll" feature on the front page of the wiki (It's directly under our weekly poll, if you want to check it out!). Every poll submitted through this feature gets posted on the Committee Staff board, and is reviewed and adjusted, before getting added to the poll queue once we think its of sufficient quality. It is our pleasure to feature the best polls made by the community, for the community, on the Mario Wiki, along with the usual handpicked polls made directly by the committee, plus some special wiki-related polls developed specifically by the Wiki Administrative Staff that will continue to show up once a month.
Now, without further ado, let's discuss some polls!
Mario & Luigi vs. Paper Mario (Stargazing (talk), August 14, 2016)
Gameplay for the next Mario platformer (Freakworld (talk), August 21, 2016)
In other words, there's some huge things going on in the Poll Committee right now, everyone here is motivated to manage this project for the coming months, and I'm personally especially thrilled to see more community-made polls in the future. Next month you will be blessed by the presence of Roy Koopa (talk) in this spot here, so be sure to come right back for more stunning Poll News!
The Awards took place in August. If you want to check out the presentations (which you definitely should), the threads can be found here:
There's more still to come from the Awards, including Awards Mafia and the prizes.
Usernames now appear between a member's avatar and personal text, if it's not the same as their display name.
In August, 162 new topics were made, and 7408 posts were made. 25 new members joined. The most online was 266 - the most so far this year - on August 20th.
(Bold means new entry and Italics mean inactive for at least the past month.)
Thread of the Month
August's Thread of the Month went to Anton's I just sent a letter to general mills, documenting Anton's quest to find out what happened to Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Mix. But there's a tragic twist at the end...
Guiliant's official 2016 tier list of the store kitties i saw on my vaycay and MST3K's Daily Mustelid thread were this month's runners-up.
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 you a section from Luigi 128.
Luigi 128 joined the Super Mario Wiki on 10 November 2008 and joined The 'Shroom in Issue XXVII, which was released on 10 June 2009. When he joined The 'Shroom he was writing three section which I have detailed in the infobox above. He would go on to write Entertainment Section four more times; Mario, Non-Mario two more times and Wanted Poster four more times. Whilst writing for The 'Shroom he also wrote Fake Movies three times, Fake TV twice and contributed one Sketch Related to Mario.
Anyway, you're not here to hear about the history of Luigi 128, so instead I'll just have you enjoy one of his Mario, Non-Mario sections, more specifically the one from Issue XXIX.
The 'Shroom Report
HI, everyone! I'm your affectionate Stats Manager, Tucayo, here with another installment of The 'Shroom Report! I want to take this space to thank you for having voted this section as your Pipe Plaza SOTM for July 2016; your votes mean a lot to me! And now let's get to our section; 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. This section will cover Issue 113.
Good evening gents and ladies. Especially the latter and former. Did you have a nice weekend? Nice weather? Boy it was like 32°C out here last week, you wouldn't believe how ho… wha..? Oh, yeah, Anniversary Announcements.
Let's see, most if not all news is to do with tournaments the past month. Let's see which ones are still rolling.
Awards Mafia VI
The game is in final planning stages and will start soon. The sign-ups have closed a little while ago, but due to a recent number of people leaving all replacements have been used and one spot has opened! You can still sign up as a replacement after that spot is filled. If someone drops out for any reason, you can then replace them in the game.
Guess the Results
Closed · Host: Awards Staff · Forum Topic
The results are still being tallied as of writing this, but you can compare your own or other's guesses with the results of the Awards in the meantime.
Mario Kart 7
While the exact date for this tournament is to be determined, plans are for 22 September or 24 September.
This tournament has been officially canceled this year.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
Three rounds have been finished and the fourth is currently going, although no matches have been reported in the past month. Currently leading is Timmy.
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.
That was Anniversary Announcements for this month. Because of the calmness after the storm we have going currently, I'll probably not be here next month, so until next time, keep y'alls Control Sticks smokin'!
All information above was correct as of 14 September 2016.
