The 'Shroom:Issue 119/The 'Shroom Spotlight
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Welcome to a new edition of The 'Shroom Spotlight! What we do is bring attention to various articles that need improvement, as outlined on 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.
Starting the year out with five out of six is a very good start, especially since it's the start of the year when everyone's still groggy from binging out on New Year's. Shiny Dry Bones was the only article who wasn't improved, but maybe it will return in a future Spotlight. Anyhow, on with the thanks to our wonderful users: TheFlameChomp (talk) created Trampoline Shy Guy, he didn't stop there as he and Owencrazyboy9 (talk) also improved Shock Bomb so it's no longer a stub; Alex95 (talk) rewrote the Magical Map so now its article looks magical as well; Owencrazyboy9 (talk) separated TNT Barrel into nice headers, and Super Radio (talk) added some additional information; and Time Turner (talk) uploaded File:MGAT Yoshi Birdie.png to replace the previous poor-quality jpg.
Earlier this month, Andymii (talk) began a collaboration thread on the forum about improving the writing seen in the Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land level articles, which we are thrilled to focus on for this month's Spotlight! Some notable issues with the articles involve incorrect tense, informal language (such as using "the heroes" in place of the Kongs), and flowery, lengthy writing. Please see our writing policy and manual of style for a full explanation on the correct writing standards to be used. However, since the new Yoshi game was released, we couldn't resist having some Yoshi-themed focuses.
Thanks for tuning in to the newest edition of The 'Shroom Spotlight! Be sure to turn up next month, where we'll be reviewing the progress on the above focuses. 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. Good luck!
