The 'Shroom:Issue 149/Pipe Plaza
Welcome to the penultimate TPG-branded month of Pipe Plaza. As academic work continues to increase in both quantity and absurdity like a Galaxy Brain meme, I think now is the right time to grab my hat and coat before I get swamped to the point where this team ends up being harmed. It's a hard choice but it feels like the most appropriate time to make it. I'll have much more to say next month when I break out the huge sappy paragraphs talking about my time here, but I would like to say how much I've enjoyed being part of the staff for nearly 2 years.
On the subject of loss, Alex95 (talk) will be stepping down from NIWA Spotlight after this issue, after 18 months of spot-on hard work. Additionally, LudwigVon (talk) will be taking his leave from Monthly Report after Issue 150 releases. Thank you both so much for your contributions, and we wish you well in the future.
Next month will house a very special issue- number 150. There's a bunch of good content coming up then to celebrate that badass milestone, but if you want to throw your own hat in the ring, you are very welcome to contribute a special section!
After this issue is published, public applications for taking over from me will be put up. If anyone is interested in running this team, I wish you good luck! For now though, enjoy one more issue of Pipe Plaza.
Section of the Month
Hello, 'Shroom readers! Another Montly Report just for you.
I have an announcement to make: Next month with the release of Issue 150, it will also marked my last Monthly Report. The last few weeks were exhausting, and that will probably be the case for the coming weeks as well. Because of it, my free time has been reduced, so, I had to make the decision to stop writing this particular section. I wrote it for over a year, and I'm pretty happy I did it, but it's time for me to conclude this chapter.
So, without further ado, let's take a look at my penultimate Monthly Report.
Hello again, welcome to Anniversary Announcements! Bit of a small one this month, but cucumbers are also interesting!
The Inky Piranha Plant
The Awards ceremony is over! Thanks go out to all presenters and their wonderful presentations. If you haven't had the chance to check the awards out, do so now! There are comics, stories, a few videos and even a few games, so there is bound to be something you like!
While tournaments are slowly wrapping up, it would almost be time for the prize distribution. As written before, the token and prize system has been abolished, so this will not be the case anymore.
In the table below, you'll find some info about the tournaments which are open for sign-ups and those that are being planned.
And that was all there is this month. Due to business and vacations on my side, the last Committee Interviews with MsRetroGeek and Roserade will unfortunately have to wait until next month, where there will be a small edition with only tournament updates otherwise. Until then, have a good time! Bye!
All information above was correct as of 17 August 2019.
Hello, 'Shroom readers! Excuse the very short introduction and lack of a conclusion this month. Awards left little time for anything else. I'm interviewing BBQ Turtle, please read, thanks!!
Hello everyone! Welcome to NIWA Spotlight, a focused list that covers one article from each of our partnered wikis that need help. These can range from articles that need more information or created to images that need replacing or uploaded. For our Mario-related topics, check out the current The 'Shroom Spotlight!
The only thing that got done last month was our own Doomhiker adding a source for Diglett's creation, before it was removed for lacking a proper link, and then was added back by Serena Strawberry in a different fashion.
On that note, this will be my last issue. More important matters are taking up more time, you know how it is. I think this was a great project, but it hasn't been getting the kind of traction I was hoping for. Since this was the last section I was writing, this also means I'll be leaving 'Shroom matters altogether since I starting writing for it back in March of 2017. Still, thanks for all the help that has been given so far, and don't stop helping out where you can!
Poll Committee Discussion
Here we go again!
Hello ‘Shroom readers, LudwigVon here, with the very first Poll Committee Discussion of the tenth term.
Poll Committee News
As you may already know, the Tenth Poll Committee is already in place, and we are currently working on many new polls that you will be able to see each week on the main page. In other words, be sure to vote. Before moving on to my analysis, I want to introduce you to the team that composes the Tenth Poll Committee. Along with me as chairperson, and Roserade (talk) as vice-chairperson, here are all our members this year:
I want to thank you once again for applying to be part of the committee this year. I am extremely happy to work with all of you!
Regarding one of our projects that we are currently working on is our annual Awards Analysis where we analyze the results from Mario Awards and Fail Awards. You will be able to see it next month, so, make sure to look forward to it! Among other things, our sweet Graphic Design Manager, The Pyro Guy (talk), will continue the tradition this year by providing us with a brand new banner. You know, the one you can see here. Thanks TPG!
How do you feel about Doug Bowser as President and COO of Nintendo of America? (Hooded Pitohui (talk) and (Doomhiker (talk), August 4, 2019)
