The 'Shroom Spotlight

Written by: Yoshi876 (talk) and Alex95 (talk)

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.

Yoshi876 is MIA and this is due tomorrow. Send help and cookies.

Half of our focuses were done last month, which is not bad. The Enigmansion was cleared up by Waluigi Time (talk), File:ZombigGuy.jpg was improved by Mario jc (talk), and Fang's other language names were found by WildWario (talk). The other three focuses were sent to the Ghost Zone.

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Yasuaki Iwata
Wanted article
We have almost nothing on this person. The only real information comes from their placement in Template:People, which lists them as a composer. But for what?
Danny Wells
Stub article
We have the basics for Danny Wells's involvement in the Super Show, being the characters he played. But how did he get the role of Luigi? Are there any interviews about his time on set? Did he look back on this after the show was done?
Nintendo Entertainment System
Rewrite and expansion required
We all love the NES, Savior of Video Games. There's a lot to unpack about the system's lifespan. Unfortunately, it looks like it was all just thrown about.
Special Attack (Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games)
Articles that need more images
Special Attacks are types of skills you can use during fencing and table tennis. They sound flashy, but what do they look like?
File:Birdo Mario Golf artwork.jpg
Image quality requested
I feel like we should have better sources now to improve on our uploads from 2007. Birdo isn't the only focus here, just the one I'm including in Spotlight, there are others for Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour that need improved.
Green Glove
Citation needed
In yet another case of Name: Real or Not?, this Yoshi's Island enemy needs help finding where its German name comes from.

Now just before we leave you, we'd like to tell you about unimplemented proposals. There are currently sixteen 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. Additionally, there are many unresolved discussions that we would love to see come to some sort of conclusion. Some might have already concluded and just need the template removed, others have been waiting for a response for years.

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!
