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.

How time flies, we're already in March! Thinking about the state of the world, it's been about a year since many of us began starting to enter lockdowns, but hopefully with the way the vaccine is progressing in certain countries, normality may soon be returning. I don't know how the situation is in the country of whoever may be reading this bit of text, but remember to keep safe!

We had a good turnout last month. The Mansion (talk) created the Paper Mushroom article (though I wonder how the effects of it look like) and cleaned up Dragoon's article, though it is still missing some Smash Ultimate information. Fortune Street was heavily expanded upon by RHG1951 (talk) with more images and tables, and 0blivion (talk) uploaded a new version of File:SSE Skyworld.png. Patty (Dragon Quest) still needs more information and Falco Lombardi needs a proper source for his trivia.

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Theme (Donkey Kong)
Wanted article
Suggested by one of our readers, this would be a page that covers the opening theme found in the original Donkey Kong game, which has been remixed several times throughout the years. We would love to see where this theme has been used in various games.
Mario Discovery (series)
Stub article
We need to start discovering a lot of information for this page, because it is lacking. When compared to other series pages it lacks common themes that may link the games, general characters that appear within them, and just general information about the games bar the developers and genre.
Burt The Bashful's Fort
Rewrite required
As the first fort in the game, Burt the Bashful is memorable to players of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. Our overview goes a little over the top, though, often going into unnecessary details and has a very strategy-like feel to it.
Spore Chomp
Citation needed
Now I love the Spore series, oh wait... this has nothing to do with that. No, this has everything to do with there being no source for the name of this enemy. Did it come from a guidebook, or is this a conjectural piece of information?
Yoshi's Island (golf course)
Articles that need more images
For a golf course that has 18 holes, we only have images for eight of them. Let's get the other ten and get this article completed!
File:Baby Daisy Mario Super Sluggers.png
Image quality requested
Baby Daisy's looking a little stretched in this screenshot. She had just scored a home run (impressive for one her age), so she could use a new image that really captures her excitement.

Now just before I leave you, I'd like to tell you about unimplemented proposals. There are currently seventeen that need to be implemented, one of which dates 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!
