The 'Shroom Spotlight

Hey readers! Welcome to this new edition of The 'Shroom Spotlight! What do we do asides from hiring underpaid Fishin' Lakitus with spotlights, you ask? We're a monthly section which brings attention to a small group of articles and images which are in need of improvement. This can include creating a new article, rewriting an expanding an existing one, and improving image presentation and quality. We aim to bring you a wide selection of focuses which appeals to everyone's interests and abilities. Let's begin by reviewing our progress from last month!

We had a very productive month last time, which I guess means you guys all get candy instead of having your house toilet-papered. Looks like I wasted money on that bog order. I give my thanks to Alex95 (talk) for de-stubifying the shockingly underwritten Switch Shock Circus, Baby Luigi (talk) for rewriting the ghastly written Ghostly Galaxy, expanding the ghoulish Ghost Valley 3 and removing the diabolical trivia from Doopliss, Owencrazyboy9 (talk) for adding an image to the deadweight Dead-End Space and Time Turner (talk) for improving the image quality on the putrid File:Pest Control.jpg. If you do not get your candy within the month please write a complaint to the Official 'Shroom Complaints Board where we will deal with it effectively, quickly and unprofessionally.

We also have a small announcement to make. Our {{spotlight notice}}, which is placed on the top of articles every month, can now indicate that our goals for that article have been completed. Thank you to Baby Luigi (talk) for the suggestion. Users are welcome to change the template themselves, once a goal has been fulfilled: simply use {{spotlight notice|completed=yes}}

Without further ado, here are our focuses for this month:

Article Category Focuses
Keep Walking‏‎
Wanted article
It looks like someone didn't walk far enough. This WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase microgame is in need of an article.
Lake Shore Paradise
Rewrite required
What do I consider paradise? Summarized overviews which are split into readable praragraphs, and not written like a walkthrough. This article shore isn't paradise.
Shiny Goomba
Rewrite and expansion required
Usually shiny things mean quality, however, the Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam section lacks this. It also lacks details on their battle style and location.
Starbeans Cafe
Long trivia section
Whilst trying to order a nice mocha, I realised I was in a queue behind a large amount of trivia. As a Brit, I don't mind a queue, unless it's got unnecessary people / trivia in it.
Mama Saw
Image requested
...Mama saw? Well I don't know if mama is seeing correctly, because I can't see any images on this article! Prove me wrong.

Bonus: an article expansion would be great as well! Such as describing their appearance, and what levels/world they appear in.

Mario of the Deep
Articles that need more images
Help! I'm seeing a large wall of text without pictures to showcase this episode from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!.

Thank you all for checking out The 'Shroom Spotlight! Be sure to tune in next month, where 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 topic if you have a forum account. If not, then please contact Yoshi876 or Shokora on their wiki talk pages. You are also welcome to make suggestions on what you think we could focus on in our next edition!
