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 August addition of Spotlight. There is not a lot to tell you, other than it is currently dark outside when I'm writing this. And as I'm in Summer time, this should be a hint to you that I'm writing this at a late time. Although, to be fair 10 at night isn't that late.

Our Luigi-themed focuses from a few months ago were all completed. Sadly, we didn't quite reach this with that month, but we managed to get halfway. Paper Kamek, Cloud Strife and Training Barrel were all improved. TheFlameChomp (talk) added the missing information to Paper Kamek, and there did seem to be a lot of information missing. YoshiEgg1990 (talk) was able to add a citation to Cloud's article, and they also uploaded an image for Training Barrel. YoshiEgg attempted to improve the quality on File:Smiley Bomb.PNG, but sadly the image no longer focused on the bomb, and was still fairly blurry. List of Regional Coins in the Luncheon Kingdom still remains a wanted article, and although Invincible Mario is still missing a lot of images, Carlos M (talk) did add some to the main article so it's not so sparse.

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Wii Menu
Wanted article
No silly, this isn't the menu screen for the Nintendo Wii, it's a microgame from the latest WarioWare game, WarioWare Gold.
Stub article
This guy... uh star, is a very smart star. Even though he only appeared in the latter parts of the game, his role could still be explained. And his Star Power section would work better as a prose paragraph.
Figure Skating
Rewrite and expansion required
The information that is there, isn't particularly written that well, but even so there's a considerable amount missing. What are the routines like, how exactly does the mode focus on speed and skill, what even are the controls?
Giant Gate
Citation needed
These gates are from the most popular Super Mario games to date, Super Mario World, but some sources call them Goal Gates. Or do they? See if you can find a source for this alternative name.

Image quality requested
This enemy might have been gone for a while, but the image is so blurry it could have come from the first game. How about cleaning it up so it looks like it came from a 2014 game.
Articles that need more images
For a pretty big part of Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros., this article sure is missing a lot of images (and information). Ideally we want every Papercraft, but slotting them all in the main body will make the article pretty crowded. So feel free to put a Gallery at the bottom.

Now just before I leave you, I'd like to tell you about the NIWA Spotlight. This is a project being run by Alex95 (talk) and can be found in this paper's Pipe Plaza section. Much like this Spotlight, the NIWA Spotlight aims to fix up articles across various Nintendo franchises, that are all part of our NIWA group. Now, Alex struggles to get people actually contributing to the project, so if you can, give him a hand!

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!
