Written by: Yoshi876 (talk)

Hello readers! Welcome to Pipe Plaza, the only 'Shroom sub-team that sounds like an actual location, well I guess apart from Critic Corner (and no, I was not hypnotised into saying that last part).

Paper Yoshi (talk) is still studying for his exams, and I'm certain he'll do brilliantly at them. Other than that, Pipe Plaza is running as usual, which is what I like to call "Tabled Chaos".

We managed to get 21 votes this month, so we still have a bit of a mountain to climb to get up to the other teams, but I'm sure with our perseverance we will be able to make it. I'll see you here next month.

Tip of the Month

Written by: FunkyK38 (talk)

If you're like me, worried that something will go wrong while you're editing the Wiki, then you may write up the information you want to put in an article in a word processor first, save it, then copy and paste it into the Wiki. This can be good help, because you have access to Spellcheck and grammar checks from your word processor, but be careful: text pasted from word processors doesn't translate very well into Wiki code at times. The biggest stumbling block is often single apostrophes, which are used for bolding or italicizing text. Before you hit submit, make sure that you view a preview of your section to check and make sure that the words you want in bold or italics appear the way you want them to.

RECENT PROPOSALS
PROPOSER SUMMARY OUTCOME DEADLINE
Lord Bowser (talk) Repurpose {{userspace}}.

A proposal to repurpose the Userspace template. The proposer argues that the main concerns are that it seems redundant to hand out when a user overly edits in their userspace, and that the template itself is too wordy and takes too long to get to the point. Also, many users with high userspace edits often have it due to experimentation with wiki coding, which is a productive use of editing if it is meant to go onto official articles.

Wildgoosespeeder (talk) Discourage OGG Extension (Not Format).

A proposal to discourage OGG Extension. The proposer argues that this make things more easily identifiable on the Super Mario Wiki. The proposer also argues that the *.ogg extension is a generic extension to describe the *.ogv and *.oga file formats and that would be like clumping several formats (*.html, *.xml, and *.rtf formats) to be included with the *.txt extension.

Niiue (talk) Create an infobox regarding Paper Mario series items.

A proposal to create an infobox for Paper Mario series items. The proposer argues that pages for Paper Mario series items don't really have a consistent format.

12-0 (read more) May 4, 2017, 23:59 GMT
YoshiFlutterJump (talk) New {{spoileralert}} template.

A proposal to create a template indicating sections with spoilers. The proposer argues that this template would go directly beneath the "Story" heading in game articles. The proposer also argues that like other readers of Super Mario Wiki, he have made a mistake by reading the "Story" sections of game pages and that those sections with spoilers don't make the game as fun.

TheDisneyGamer (talk) Create a new template requesting more references.

A proposal to create a template requesting more references. The proposer argues that it would be much easier to add a notice to the top of the page indicating that the page as a whole is in need of citations.

Alex95 (talk) Create a new template for the Super Smash Bros. mugshots.

A proposal to create a template for the head images of the characters in Super Smash Bros.. The proposer argues that it'd be easier and more efficient to have templates for the heads instead of writing the filename in article like Equipment.

RECENT TALK PAGE PROPOSALS
PROPOSER SUMMARY OUTCOME DEADLINE
Alex95 (talk) Move Power Suit to Varia Suit or delete it and move info to Zero Laser's page.

A proposal to move Power Suit to Varia Suit or delete it and move the info to Zero Laser's page. The proposer argues that the information is actually incorrect. What this page calls the Power Suit is actually Samus's Varia Suit. The proposer also argues that it doesn't seem to have any purpose for either the Mario series or the Super Smash Bros. series and the only time the Power/Varia Suit needs to be mentioned is during Zero Laser's Brawl's information about how it falls apart.

Wildgoosespeeder (talk) Split List of Mario references in video games.

A proposal to split list of Mario references in video games into several articles. The proposer argues that the list is unruly and excessive. The proposer also argues that this page needs to be split into more manageable articles.

A proposal to split Bros. Flower, a Bros. Attack in the Mario & Luigi series from Fire Flower. The proposer argues that while Bros. Flowers are very similar to Fire Flowers, they are used slightly differently and have different names in every region.

Time Turner (talk) Delete List of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episodes featuring Mouser.

A proposal to delete List of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episodes featuring Mouser. The proposer argues that Mouser's only appearance as a character is in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, and leaving this information into this article leave the main article unnecessarily short.

Nintendo 3DS:

Greetings! I am Alex95, here to tell you more about an upcoming game and my thoughts about it.

Meet a couple of the heroes!

Have you ever wanted to create your own role-playing game in the vein of Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy? Then perhaps RPG Maker Fes is for you! Having used/am currently using RPG Maker programs to create my own games (more on that later, maybe), I was really excited to hear about RPG Maker Fes coming to the Nintendo 3DS. RPG Makers have mainly kept to computer systems in recent years, though the first versions of the programs were released in Japan for the Super Famicom and PlayStation systems. Just a fun fact for you there.

Anyway, what is RPG Maker? As the name implies, it's a program that allows you to make role-playing games! You can create your own characters, story, graphics, the whole works. Create your own world, place enemies within, strategize puzzles, and go on an adventure! Want to create a simple story where the handsome hero rescues a beautiful princess? Or maybe you want to follow the villain of a story and go on a rampage? Whatever story you come up with, you can create!

Design the world of your dreams!
Battle mystical enemies!

Now, RPG Maker Fes (whatever the heck "Fes" stands for. "Fantasy…engine…something") may appear to be a bit streamlined compared to, say, the recent RPG Maker MV, but it still holds a lot of content to help you create that dream game of yours. You can personalize your characters however you want and give them unique attributes. Then create the enemies you'll fight along your journey. And finally, build the world you've always dreamed of! RPG Maker Fes allows a wide array of customizable options and skills that even someone with as low as no game making experience can pick up and start building a game. Don't feel like you can build a game from scratch? Don't worry, the game has you covered! Right off the bat, RPG Maker Fes starts you off with premade characters, enemies, items, and skills that you can either tweak or just use as is. With an SD card in your 3DS, you can save up to 16 games in the system, so you can let your siblings create game worlds of their own (and believe me, they will want to) without having to worry about your game getting messed up.

Perhaps you just want to see and play what others have created? Or maybe you're in a game designing slump and need some inspiration? RPG Maker Fes allows you to share your creations online and play games others have uploaded! Don't have RPG Maker Fes, but want to see what others have created anyway? A free app in the Nintendo eShop called RPG Maker Player will allow you to play other people's creations even if you don't have the main game itself! (You still need the actual game if you want to create something, however.) Essentially, you can play numerous games for free! That app will be available the day the main game gets released.

Thoughts

The only limitation I can find between Fes and other RPG Makers is that you can't import custom assets like graphics and music, which is a bummer. Perhaps I'm missing something, but at least there is a lot of content for you to work with, enough that you can create just about any setting you can think of! If you already have RPG Maker MV, or maybe RPG Maker VX or VX Ace, then you probably don't need to pick this up. But if this will be your first foray into RPG Maker designing, then I highly recommend this. Simple, portable, and awesome! If you want to learn more about RPG Maker Fes, then feel free to visit the official site here. Or, if you want to see how a shameless plug game can utilize the RPG Maker engine, check out a game I created using the VX Ace system called Power Master 1: A Strange Journey! Until next time, I'll see you around!

(Disclaimer: Just want to send out a warning to players. The game is rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and up), but user-created content will vary. Most of the created games will be text-heavy, but creators can create something either kid-friendly or make some serious NSFW stuff. Be careful when downloading!)

That's your weather for this week, now for the Poll Committee. Roy?

Thank you, Roy, and welcome to Poll Committee Discussion. The headlines for this month include...uh...not really that much, actually. So, uh, yeah. The only thing I can really say is that I'm writing this section. So that's pretty cool. Next month though, get hyped for the chairperson election! If you liked Tucky's service to polls all this year, then...do a thing for him? I dunno. Here's some polls now.

Analysis

  • Older Stuff: According to a very specific group of people known as “Anyone who happens to read our main page,” older items like the thing from that one game there that those people really liked should come back! In fact, 1,284 out of 2,012, or about 3/5, of the people say Nintendo should bring back the olden days of items. I agree with them. One of my favorite things in older games is the Metal Cap, which unfortunately died after Mario 64. Unless you count ROM hacks, which I do play a lot of. Then there's the 19 people who think everything is about being new. I disagree. Sure, maybe there can be some new things, but one-offs shouldn't exist all the time.
  • Switch Online Service: Three quarters of a thousand people, or 750, don't have their minds made up yet because the whole thing is pretty vague. All I really know about it is that you're going to have to pay to play online. Y'know what I say to that? DUMBEST THING EVER. One of the things a lot of people like to do in video games is play with other people. You used to be able to play online as much as you wanted, free of charge. In fact, a while back, I spent a few hours playing online battle mode in Mario Kart 8 and got my BR up to, like, 7500 or something. But you want me, a 15-year-old with only 73 dollars in my bank account, to pay real money to play with other people? Yeah, I don't like that.
  • Biggest Flaw: If you know me, you know that I really don't like New Super Mario Bros. 2. I was actually really looking forward to it, only to be disappointed by how mediocre it was. I would actually say it falls under every single one of these options, but since you're only allowed one choice, the people went with story. Which makes sense, because literally every single Mario platformer has the same story: Bowser kidnaps Peach. You save her. Yaaaaaay it's boring. We want variety, okay, Nintendo? The other popular choice was difficulty. Going back to New Super Mario Bros. 2, I saw a video once about the easiest infinite lives trick in Mario games ever. The maker of that video talked about a lot of different tricks, but the final, and easiest one goes as follows: “Get your copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 – and play the game. That's it.” (Video here. Specific clip at 4:45) It's impossible to get a game over in that game, which I don't like. So, voters, let it be known that your opinions are good on this question.
  • Do you read the 'Shroom? Well, if you answered no, then you're probably not reading this. That crowd includes...974 people who either don't read it or don't know what it is. Everyone else, yes, I'm talking to you, either said they read it all or only read some sections. If you said you read it all, then hello there, one of 110 people. If you said you read some of it, hopefully you read Pipe Plaza because you get to see nice sections like this! And now I don't really have anything else to say about this question.

End

It's been a wonderful journey through the glorious land that we call the Poll Committee. I hope you've gained some type of knowledge that you can apply to your life. If not...that's probably typical. Next month you'll be hearing from a good friend of mine, who also happens to be one of the biggest Bowser fans in our community. Know who it is? If you don't, it's Lord Bowser (talk)! I'm sure he'll do just as good a job of writing the section as I did, right? Of course. I don't know how to end this now since I can't say I'll see you next month, so...I guess bye for now, and enjoy the rest of the 'Shroom!

Positions held:

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. It will come to no surprise to anyone, that I'm a fan of Pipe Plaza. Yes, Fake News is funnier, and Fun Stuff is funner, but Pipe Plaza is the little well-known section that's always there to give some handy stats when you're in need of them. Over the years, Pipe Plaza has had sections like Mario Calendar (now moved), interviews, and game previews. Today we generally boast around nine or ten sections a month.

Pipe Plaza came into existence in Issue XXXII, and we've been running ever since. Pipe Plaza has had four directors in its lifetime: Super Mario Bros. (talk), Marioguy1 (talk), Paper Yoshi (talk), and myself, Yoshi876 (talk).

However, you're not here to hear me rattle on about past writers, you're interested in old section, so have this edition of Pipe from Issue LII.

Director’s Notes (Marioguy1 (talk))

Hey guys! It’s Marioguy1 <3

Welcome to another issue of the Pipe Plaza. Sorry for the lateness of this, I wasn’t able to properly manage the Pipe Plaza this month. Therefore I will be taking a break from directing the Pipe Plaza until I am able to manage it properly.

This month we would like to bid farewell to WigglerWhoopin’Warrior135 who has unfortunately resigned.

Upcoming Games (Paper Yoshi (talk))

Hello everyone, and welcome to Part 2 of our E3 coverage! This month, we'll take a look at the remaining 3 Mario games. Unlike last month, however, not much has been revealed about these games, which will make this Upcoming Games issue rather short.

The game's E3 trailer revealed another partner, this time a Green Toad

Paper Mario 3DS

The E3 trailer simply demonstrated the gameplay for this Paper Mario installment. It'll be very similar to the series' first two games, while incorporating 3D elements in aspects such as the overworld and the battle screen. Paper Mario 3DS will also bring back the Bingo! feature from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, although it'll be renamed Battle Chance.

Mario and Sonic playing Badminton against Peach and Amy

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games

Unfortunately, Mario & Sonic London 2012 wasn't given much time last month at Nintendo's E3 conference. It briefly appeared in a trailer showing third-party games, and basically nothing new was unveiled aside from four new sports: Badminton, Football/Soccer, Equestrian and Field Hockey for the Wii version, as well as Race Walk, Canoeing and Judo for the 3DS version.

Wario's turn in the new "car mode"

Mario Party 9

Mario Party 9 will feature a new game mode reminiscent of Mario Party Advance: all players move together in a car, while collecting unnamed silver stars. However, the traditional individual mode will still be present in the game. MP9 will also feature new minigames, including 2 vs. 1 minigames against Bowser Jr.

Release Dates (North America)

  • Paper Mario 3DS: TBA
  • Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympics:
    • Wii Version: November 2011
    • 3DS Version: February 2012
  • Mario Party 9: TBA

And with that, we finish the Upcoming Games E3 coverage! I'll keep you all posted on these games as news come. I hope you enjoyed this month's issue!

Anniversary Announcements (Ralphfan (talk))

Polls closed on July 13th. Most of the Mario and Fail polls got at least 800 votes, and some broke 1,000! Thanks to all the voters, except the ones that entered joke votes, or "all", or "none", or something like a game that wasn't released yet. It screws up vote counts and makes everyone's job a lot harder. Hopefully we won't have this problem next year. Great job to all the other voters. I believe we have broken records for the most votes, though I haven't finished doing all the math just yet.

The ceremony takes place on August 12, and until then, we have some great events to keep you entertained. Stooben and I are hosting a Mafia game, there is a contest to guess the results, and BMB is hosting a Brawl tournament. For all of these events, there will be prizes. And not just any prizes, hella prizes. These hella prizes range from a special appearance in The 'Shroom to Nintendo Points. All you have to do is sign up and play. Good luck!

Thanks to all the presenters who have signed up. Your presentations are due August 5th and if you have not received your results in your inbox on the forums, you will in the next couple of days. The only excuses will be for backup presenters and people that have had unexpected events come up. Hopefully, none of these things will happen.

Forum Update (Ralphfan (talk))

The ability to change one's name without the help of a moderator was revoked this past month due to overuse by certain users. *glares* You know who you are. Anyway, The official name change request thread is back in use and people need a moderator to change their name for them once again. Name changes have been limited to once a month.

Stooben's mafia game is still going on. It's about to end, though. Go werewolves!

Tip of the Month (FunkyK38 (talk))

Tip of the Month: I've encountered this many times: when creating an account in the forums and you come to the verification code, type all the letters lowercase, even if they are shown as capitals. None of them are numbers, either, which I have seen used on other websites. If you really can't tell what it says, hit the "Listen to the Letters" button, and it will read it for you.

PipeProjects Seeking Contributors (Yoshiwaker (talk))

Hello! I'm back with another great PipeProject that you should sign up for! It's the "Microgame+Template:Button" PipeProject; which will add the {{Button}} template to all the microgame articles. This is good because it will make use of the great and simple Button template.

'Shroom Trivia
Out of all the current Core Staff positions, the Sub Director post is the only to have ever been vacant since its inception. There was no Sub Director for Issues LXXI and LXXII due to there being two Co-Directors; however, it was later deemed it was still necessary to have one.



Anniversary Announcements

Written by: Lakituthequick (talk)

“Let's agree on a standardised format for each nominee. I propose something like '🅱OWSER'S 👏 🅱IG 👏 🅱LAST 🌋🌋🌋'.”
GBAToad (Talk Page · Forum Profile)

Good morning, and welcome to Anniversary Announcements, May MMXVII edition! Live from the double-A studios.. wait, this is written text, there isn't such a thing as live..

The Porcupuffers

The last awards meeting was held in the night of 6 or 7 May (depending on your timezone). There may be one more meeting after E3 depending on how many interesting things get revealed, but the regular meetings have ended.

A lot of prizes are games distributed via Steam, but Steam has changed the way gifting works, so it now requires more coordination to correctly distribute items. Existing purchases don't appear to be affected.
A good alternative is using Humble Bundle Store, as they provide download codes that do not expire if distributed incorrectly.
Secondly, an alternative is monetary donations to Hypnotoad, which he will convert into gift cards.

Next month, the polls will open, and the Community Awards dossiers will be published in this paper.

Tournaments

Since last month, more tournaments have been posted on the Awards board on the forums. Because there was only one last month, I just made a quick note about it, but now it is time for a neat table!

Art Contest
Hypnotoad An art contest, where you can submit anything that can be considered art to the host within the time period.
There are three art tiers, Beginner, Amateur and Experienced, as to give space to artists of any skill level.
1 June to 11 July

Awards Mafia 6
GBAToad
Superchao
A big game of Mafia, with the typical Innocent and Mafia factions, as well as some possible Independents and Third Parties. The game doesn't necessarily feature a specific theme, so one can expect any character from any media as a role.
Extra gimmicks consist of a location system, items, economy and some status effects.
Signups for this tournament have been closed, but you can still sign up as a replacement.
26 June
Forum topic
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth
DragonFreak Currently gauging interest, this tournament is for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth with the Afterbirth DLC (not Afterbirth+) on PC. The exact format is not known at this time, but will likely be through Daily Runs.
Forum topic
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Photo Hunt
GBAToad Very much alike to one of the main missions in the game, in this tournament you will search for 12 locations based on 12 pictures, and you in turn take pictures of them as well. Points will be awarded for each photographed and each named location, as well as finding it first and for making an original picture of it.
One week in late June
Forum topic
Mario Kart 7
Stargazing A versus tournament with the participants racing in groups of 4 to 6 players, with the top 2-4 moving on to the next round. The final 4 to 6 will face off in the finals.

Mario Awards Killing Game I
Lord Bowser A game inspired by the Danganronpa game series, and featuring Mafia-like elements. What sets it apart from Mafia is the fact one can do anything, be it exploring, using a power, and attempting to kill someone. This game therefore encourages roleplaying.
The game is a free-for-all game, and only ends when one player remains.
Signups for this tournament have been closed, but you can still sign up as a replacement

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon
Meta Knight
Palkia47
A Swiss-style game for the seventh Pokémon generation, meaning there is no elimination and you are paired against players of similar score. The game is played in five rounds.
To balance things out, legendary Pokémon and several powerful actions are not allowed to be used.
21 June to 15 July
Forum topic

Other tournaments that are being planned are for Mario Kart 8 and Deluxe (regular and battle), Splatoon, Minecraft, and a Scavenger Hunt.

Awards

The Community Awards have been completed, with a total of six removals (five User awards and one 'Shroom award) and two new awards, for a total of 15. 'Shroom-related awards have the infix "'Shroom" added to make clear what the awards are about.

Additionally, the full review of all awards has been completed.

I will list the additions, removals and other changes, and then a complete list of the nominees for that award. If an award was changed during the full review, I will also list it here, but not for (small) formulation changes.

Refer to this document for a full list of nominees.
