The 'Shroom Spotlight

Written by: Yoshi876 (talk)

Hello readers of The 'Shroom, and welcome to Spotlight. Spotlight is a community project which aims to fix up the articles on the wiki which have issues. These issues can range from poor writing, to a lack of images, to even just needing a credible source.

Welcome to this May addition of the project. And what amazing news do I have to impart with you this month? Well, I'm now on Summer break for the next few months, does that mean I'll be more active here? We'll see what happens, but I will certainly be around to make sure that we always have a Spotlight going.

Like every month, we've had a lot of successes, but there has also been some unfinished work, and sadly this month this was higher than usual. But to keep a positive spin on things, I'm going to focus on the successes that we had last month. World 1-1 (Super Mario Land) was created by Reboot (talk), and it looks better than a lot of the level articles from more recent games. LuigiMaster123 (talk) uploaded a new image for File:NSMBU Yoshi Flagpole.png, and it looks so much better. You can actually work out what the image is. And although we didn't find a source for Goop Generator's name, a talk page proposal merged it in Polluted Piranha, so I guess you could say that focus was fixed.

Unfortunately, over the course of the month Mini Mr. Mini was untouched, although looking at it, is a stub? Sure, it's short, but it seems to have all of the necessary information. Lakitu Valley was likewise untouched, but we did manage to get some extra images for Tap-Tap, thanks to Super Radio (talk).

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Masterpiece (microgame)
Wanted article
No, this isn't an article on your favourite Spotlight and former Pipe Plaza director. Instead, this is about a microgame in WarioWare: D.I.Y.
Toadstool Castle
Stub article
Editors, it looks like our information is in another castle. Perhaps a levels section for this castle could restore its honour.
Spike Trap
Rewrite required
Not only are the spikes dangerous, but the writing on this article is quite spiky. Tense issues and just general messiness plague this article.
Citation needed
We don't have one citation to find here, but two. Well I say two, but judging by the information that's been tagged, the source should cover both claims. Those claims being the character's age and it seems the existence of this RDM.

Image quality requested
Converting .jpg files to .png files is against our wiki's policy, and this is exactly what this image is. Preferably, you should recapture it as a .png files, but if it can only be uploaded as a .jpg file, then this will be acceptable.
Block Star (Mario Party series)
Articles that need more images
This should be a simple image focus for this month. This article is very nearly complete, all it requires is another image from Mario Party DS. Just grab a friend and get that image for us!

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 myself on my wiki talk page. You are also welcome to make suggestions on what you think we could focus on in our next edition. Thank you, and good luck!
