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.

The months are just rolling by at the moment aren't they? I swear March was only a few days ago! But as the months do continue to tumble by and we return to the world that we knew before, please remember to contribute to your friendly local Spotlight. We can't offer cookies or pizza, but just know that we will be giving you a virtual thumbs up!

Most of our focuses from last month were completed! RHG1951 (talk) helped expand Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins's pre-release and unused content section, Paper Plumm (talk) and Casual Koopa (talk) (with some help from Mario jc (talk)) helped expand Hoohoo Mountain's article with new information, Hooded Pitohui (talk) found a page number for Gold Banzai Bill, Dr. Kirb (talk) improved File:BeanstalkWay.png, and 7feetunder (talk) added more images to Spaceport Alpha. We're just missing ...Surprise!, so good job!

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
House of Riddles
Wanted article
Riddle me this, riddle me that, why doesn't this Paper Mario: The Origami King have an article yet?
Kelsey Hutchison
Stub article
Here's one that needs some work. All we know about Kelsey is she voiced Toad in the Mario Strikers games, her clips reused for the sequel. There's talk about one new clip that Toad has in the sequel, if anyone can put some research into that, but also knowing who Kelsey is would be great.
Kremling Krew
Rewrite required
Not sure what to make of this article. It talks about the Kremling Krew both as if it were just the Kremlings or if it is every enemy until King K. Rool. The article seems to have lost its direction partway through.
Dragon Coin
Citation needed
Look, one of the editors for this page loves Yoshi (you got one guess for which one), but was the Dragon Coin ever referred to as a Yoshi Coin, or is that just a fan name because of what looks to be a Yoshi on it?
Stage 2 (DK: Jungle Climber)
Articles that need more images
What does this second extra stage of DK: Jungle Climber look like? I would look like to see these colorful tires the article talks about.
Image quality requested
At the end of the day, we are an English wiki, so ideally we should capture this main menu in English rather than French.

Now just before I leave you, we'd like to tell you about unimplemented proposals. There are currently nineteen that need to be implemented, some of which date 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!
