The 'Shroom Spotlight

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 December 2020! It's about time this year drew to a close. We've had some good, we've had a lot of bad. But one thing is for certain: Spotlight is forever. Let's see if we can't end this year off with getting all our focuses done! You must do so. Your Shroob overlords command it.

And when it came to November, we got quite a few focuses done. Doomhiker (talk) created the article for the voice actor Michael Stark, DarkNight (talk) and Ray Trace (talk) completed the article for Underground Pokey Patrol, adding level information and Smiley Flower locations, and finally our own 'Shroom director, Hooded Pitohui (talk) added the page number for Stop & Go Barrel. Although Mute is still a stub, Boomaster74 (talk) and Kirbyo (talk) added some information to the article, but sadly our images focuses, List of Paper Mario: Sticker Star glitches and File:AMusterofMasks.png weren't touched.

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Jumping Boots
Wanted article
Your puny Partners in Time coverage is fine, but the other Mario & Luigi coverage isn't fuly up to scratch. It might not be related to our game, but you should still have an article on the Jumping Boots from the remake of Superstar Saga.
Princess Shroob
Rewrite required
The true star of Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time has a wonderful personallity, don't you think? Unfortunately, her personality section doesn't do it justice! So many grammar issues and conflictions of our manual of style.
Button (Mario & Luigi series)
Rewrite and expansion required
Your Button article starts off well, but then we notice it mentions nothing about its appearance in our adventure! Who can interact with it, what locations does this button appear in? And although we don't care for the Koopa King, information on his game is needed there!
Citation needed
That old non-Shroobsworth is claming he has some relation to that human princess. We think that info got lost in their archives, because even the princess is confused about it.
Star Hill
Image requested
Ah, the shiny Star Hill. Filled with stars. And not much else. We could use a few more examples of the path leading up to our Commander Shroob. Oh, and of that other RPG.
File:M&LPIN Elder Shrooboid UFO.png
Image quality requested
Our wonderful Elder Shrooboid is a fine specimen, but this image of him (in all his glory) needs some fixing up. There's a grey line on the top left side of the image, it seems to be a little blown up, proportion-wise, and it could be a litle bit less blurier.

Now just before I leave you, I'd like to tell you about unimplemented proposals. There are currently seventeen that need to be implemented, with the earliest dating back to 2018, so think of this as a continuous Spotlight goal until they're all completed.

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 the article focuses, then please get in touch through the dedicated topic if you have a forum account. If not, then please contact us on Yoshi876's talk page or Alex95's talk page, but you are far more likely to get a quick response if you go through the forums. You are also welcome to make suggestions on what you think we could focus on in our next edition! Thank you, and good luck!
