The 'Shroom Spotlight

Hello readers! On behalf of ourselves, we would like to welcome you all to a new edition of The 'Shroom Spotlight. This is a monthly section where we bring attention to a small selection of articles and images. Each of these come from various wiki improvement categories (such as rewriting an article, or improving an image's quality), so there is always a wide choice of focuses for everyone's interests and abilities. Let's get started by reviewing the progress made in our previous edition.

We did great last month! Not one of our focuses was left uncompleted, so well done you guys! Goal was overhauled and worked on by a wide-ranging amount of users, Baby Luigi (talk) rewrote Fall, with minor touch-ups completed by other users, Alex95 (talk) expanded Which-Way Labyrinth, Turboo (talk) found and uploaded the missing image for Yoshi Platform, L151 (talk) fixed our image quality focus by uploading File:NSMBU Three Dry Bones Screenshot.png and Ninelevendo (talk) created Snifberg the Unfeeling. I think Snifberg is Feeling a little happier with an article now.

A new month means a brand new set of article focuses. Please check out the following, and help us out if you see a focus which may interest you.

Article Problems Description
Mushroom Park
Stub article
This is one theme park you don't want to go to. The main issue this park has is a lack of a description about the board itself, so even if I wanted to go somewhere, I have no idea where the information desk is.
Spirit Ball
Rewrite required
Simply put, this article is a load of balls. It tries setting out a story narrative, when all that is needed is a description of the Spirit Ball and what it actually does.
Pi'illo Island
Rewrite and expansion required
Somebody obviously fell asleep while constructing the "locations" section: the greater location (Pi'illo Island) should ideally summarize the lesser locations, such as Pi'illo Castle and Wakeport. Each of the lesser locations should be made into a succinct and descriptive paragraph.

Bonus: A section on "Notable inhabitants" would be a fantastic addition, summarizing characters and their roles on the island (such as Dr. Snoozemore, Zeekeeper and any enemies and species which are unique to Pi'illo Island).

Long trivia section
We trippin' over this fam. Most of the trivia section (without objection) should be given a revision, incorporated if advocated, or removed outright with a kiss goodnight.
Unfeature nomination
"Kart" has recently been nominated to become unfeatured, due to several problems with the article. We hope that this nomination can bring attention to the improvements required, so we'll summarize them here:
  • The images which are used in the gallery sections are generally very inconsistent. For instance, full size character artworks can be seen among sections occupied by screenshots or models.
  • Reviewing the length of sections, and the quality of the writing.

Bonus: An idea for improving the general presentation of the article would be to list the statistics of each Kart (where available), within a table and separated by game section.

High Tide Rise
Wanted article
Hopefully someone will create this Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze level, before we get too tide-up about it.

Thank you all for tuning in to our latest edition of The 'Shroom Spotlight! Be sure to check back here next month: we'll be reviewing the progress on each of these articles. If you have any questions or suggestions about this month's set of article focuses, then please get in touch through the dedicated forum topic if you have an account on the forums. If not, then please contact Yoshi876 or YoshiKong on their wiki talk pages. You are also welcome to make suggestions on what you think we could focus on in our next edition!

Thank you for reading, and good luck!
