C6. Favorite 'Shroom Team

C6. Favorite 'Shroom Team

This award honors the different teams that are a part of The 'Shroom.

Nominee Summary/Description
Fake News

Started in the first official 'Shroom release by the now-banned user WarioLoaf (talk) on January 6th, 2007, Fake News was the first of the teams to be founded, designed to allow writers to flex their fiction-writing muscles by making up news stories about upcoming Mario game releases or inventing creative stories surrounding the various characters of the Mario universe. Having survived the long test of time, Fake News continues to be a huge draw for the newsletter, currently headed by its longest-running director MrConcreteDonkey (talk), and sustained by its ongoing writers FunkyK38 (talk) (Weather Forecast), Yoshi876 (talk) (Obituaries), Quizmelon (talk) (TV Tomorrow), Koops (talk) (Travel Guide), and Raregold (talk) (Selling Out). Here is a historical list of Fake News sections.

Fun Stuff

Fun Stuff began in the third issue under the name of Fun Section, founded by the 'Shroom’s director at the time, Plumber (talk), on March 3rd, 2007. Fun Stuff was created to provide interactive games and activities for the community, such as riddles, trivia, or quizzes, eventually growing over time to incorporate visual games such as crosswords and picture matching games. Fun Stuff is currently run by Roserade (talk), and it's supported by its writers Shoey (talk) (Trivia), BBQ Turtle (talk) (Anagrams), LudwigVon (talk) (Guess Who? and Hiding Koopa), and Lakituthequick (talk) (It's aMAZEing). Here is a historical list of Fun Stuff sections.

Palette Swap

Originally under the moniker of Art and Music, and later Music and Artwork, before reaching its current name, Palette Swap was created in the 29th issue by the then-current 'Shroom Director Super Mario Bros. (talk), on August 13th, 2009. Palette Swap’s focus is also on the community’s creativity, but with a focus on multimedia such as music and artworks, both official and fan-made. While it was initially simply a showcase of screenshots and artwork from around the Wiki, the past couple of years have seen more substance added to the team, with commentary, user-created music and fanart, and occasionally artwork competitions. Palette Swap is currently directed by FunkyK38 (talk), and its current permanent staff are Yoshi876 (talk) (What's On the Box?), The Pyro Guy (talk) (Ongoing Fan Projects), Hooded Pitohui (talk) (Mario's Boombox), and Superchao (talk) (Touhou (Remix) Project). Here is a historical list of Palette Swap sections.

Pipe Plaza

Pipe Plaza actually used to be a separate sector of the Wiki, a portal with the intention of keeping the community up to date on recent events and various aspects of the wiki in need of tidying up or improvement. Due to its considerable inactivity, it was decided via Proposal to add it in to The 'Shroom in the 32nd issue run by Super Mario Bros. (talk), but it didn’t get any content until the the next issue, whereupon Marioguy1 (talk) was added as a co-director. Keeping true to its roots, Pipe Plaza details all the changes in the Wiki as well as its forum in the past month, often with very rigid formatting rules for simplest readability, making it the most code-heavy team in the newsletter. Pipe Plaza is currently headed by The Pyro Guy (talk), and its current writers are LudwigVon (talk) (Monthly Report), Alex95 (talk) (NIWA Spotlight), Superchao (talk) (Interview), the Poll Committee (Poll Committee Discussion), Raregold (talk) and Hooded Pitohui (talk) ('Shroom Recap), GPM1000 (talk) (Mario Calendar) and Lakituthequick (talk) (Anniversary Announcements [seasonal]). Here is a historical list of Pipe Plaza sections.

Critic Corner

This Team was founded in the 64th issue special by the former Affiliates Manager Crocodile Dippy (talk) on July, 2014, Critic Corner was devised to help reduce the crowding of the main page by pulling all review and analyst-style sections into a single page. As a result, Critic Corner tends to be the wordiest of the teams. It started the trend for updated team designs due in large part to the coding assistance of Twentytwofiftyseven (talk).Over the past year there has been a large shift in the Team's writers, but it continues to have plentiful sections by many dedicated writers. Critic Corner is run by Hypnotoad (talk) (who also writes Anton's Half-Baked Reviews), and its permanent writers are FunkyK38 (talk) (Book Reviews), Mariofan169 (talk) (Rising Sun Reviews), Chibiki Daisy (talk) (Hot Pot Reviews), Doomhiker (talk) (Virtual Console Reviews), Stargazing (talk) (Spacing Out), and MsRetroGeek (talk) (G. T.V.). Here is a historical list of Critic Corner sections.

Strategy Wing

The most recent Team, Strategy Wing was debuted in the 100th Issue by former Director Stooben Rooben (talk) as a place to get together sections related to tips, tricks, hints, cheats, guides, walkthroughs, and more. While it hasn't generally been the largest Team in terms of content, the past year has seen the addition of numerous new sections. It provides analytical and instructional sections, with a continued focus on videogames. Strategy Wing is currently directed by Hooded Pitohui (talk), and its current permanent writers are Yoshi876 (talk) (Pokédex Power and Racing Like the Staff), YoshiFlutterJump (talk) (YoshiFlutterJump's Tips and Tricks!), Meta Knight (talk) (Meta Knight's Dream Land Journal), Superchao (talk) (Mach Speed Mayhem), and Parakoopa144 (PK144's Course Corner). Here is a historical list of Strategy Wing sections.
