The 'Shroom Spotlight

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

Shokora: Hello everyone! Welcome to a brand new edition of The 'Shroom Spotlight! Way down south here in Australia, we've had frosty mornings and rainy afternoons. Some people are trying to brighten their month up by celebrating a so-called "Christmas in July", which seems like a beautiful occasion to enjoy a warm mid-winter dinner in a way that can't be done during our scorching summer Christmases on the beach! Here's Yoshi876 with a review on how we did during last month's edition.


Yoshi876: I do decree that we did rather well in all honesty. Only two article weren't fixed, but both at least had attempts to fix them. File:Brute.jpg had Time Turner (talk) inquire about fixing it, even if his efforts were ultimately fruitless, and Wario was touched up by a fair amount of users. As for the articles that were improved, Goombas (microgame) was created by Wildgoosespeeder (talk), The Sweet Stuff and WarioWare, Inc. (company) were both improved by Time Turner (talk), however, it should be noted that it was brought up in the forum thread that The Sweet Stuff wasn't really a stub article. Remember, stubs are only articles that are missing information, just because it's short, doesn't mean it's a stub. And finally, additional logos were uploaded for Gallery:Wario World by Shy Guy on Wheels (talk).

And now, here are our focuses for this month:

Article Category Focuses
Monopoly Gamer
Wanted article
A Mario-themed Monopoly without an article on the wiki? Go straight to Jail, do not pass Go. You are not allowed out until it's been created.
Large Coin
Stub article
This Large Coin article isn't even worth a penny. Examples of where to find such coins should be included. Using some of the info from Courage Soda could also be a good way to increase this article's bullion value.
Twilight Town
Rewrite required
The article jumps from event to event so quickly it makes you want to leave the citizens to their certain peril, just so you don't have to navigate through it.
Yellow Yoshi
Rewrite and expansion required
As per a suggestion from BBQ Turtle, we'll be focusing on the colored Yoshi pages throughout the upcoming editions! First on the list is Yellow Yoshi, who's instead looking a bit blue with his rewrite-expand template. Help us revise the article's writing, and expand some of the one line sections where possible!

Image quality requested
This artwork, taken from a Super Mario Run screenshot, should ideally be captured from an iPhone 4 or 5 to ensure the sharpest quality. Perhaps this is a more important task than those Pink Coins...
Go! Go! Morphing!
Articles that need more images
This level could be morphed into a quality article through adding screenshots as examples of Yoshi's transformations. Go! Go! Spotlight!

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. Thank you, and good luck!
