The 'Shroom Spotlight

Written by: Yoshi876 (talk) and Shokora (talk)

Welcome to our first 'Shroom Spotlight edition for the year! What we do here is review different issues that the wiki's articles have, as seen from our maintenance page. Then we select a small number of those articles, and aim to improve them and correct their issues. The progress we've made on those articles are later reported on in the following month's edition.

So last month, we had our special Christmas edition, and boy did we have a lot of presents to hand out, ten in fact. However, like Christmas presents, some of them weren't wanted, and we had to return them to the shops. However, some people did keep their presents: Wildgoosespeeder (talk) got (created) Sumo Robots!, Baby Luigi (talk) and Quizmelon (talk) got (rewrote) Speed Skating, Alex95 (talk) got (rewrote and expanded) Shivering Mountains, 3D Player 2010 (talk) got (removed trivia) Mario Party 3, Mario jc (talk) got (added image to) Blockstopper!, and Time Turner (talk) got (added images to) Vanilla Lake 1.

We're having quite a balanced choice of focuses this month. Users who enjoy filling in content gaps should go for the red focuses, those who prefer to take the time to rewrite and organize written content should check our blue, and others who are more confident in sourcing and using images should make a beeline for the yellow focuses.

Article Category Focuses
Trampoline Shy Guy
Wanted article
Everyone loves trampolines, and everyone loves Shy Guys, so let's combine them both and create an article on the Trampoline Shy Guy.
Shock Bomb
Stub article
Shock horror! The Shock Bomb from Mario & Luigi: Dream Team is a stub. Perhaps giving some information on how and where to obtain the bomb could help.
Magical Map
Rewrite required
The writing for this article is anything but magical. It sounds like it was lifted from a prophecy, instead of encyclopedic writing.
TNT Barrel
Rewrite and expansion required
Here's hoping for an explosive Spotlight month for our TNT Barrel article. Game-specific "history" information needs to be split to separate headers, rather than being clumped together... BOOM.
Shiny Dry Bones
Image requested
Help us shine up this Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam enemy article with an image of the enemy, as well as a screenshot of the battle.
Image quality requested
This oversized Mario Golf: Advance Tour image should ideally be recaptured as a PNG, and at the correct resolution.
