The 'Shroom Spotlight

Written by: Yoshi876 (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.

Expecting Waluigi Time again? TOO BAD. YOSHI876 TIME! My humblest apologies for being absent for our last issue, I had about 876 things to do and time enveloped me. And then this month it sent illness, my way, but after a brief visit from Dr. Mario, and Dr. Luigi, and Dr. Yoshi, and Dr. Wario (my lord, how many doctors do we have in this Kingdom??) I made a full(ish) recovery. Just from Dr. Wario's advice, I have consumed a lot of garlic, so perhaps you may want to stay away from me this month. But don't stay away from Spotlight!

Waluigi Time selected some amazing focuses for last month, and we netted some good contributions for them. ThePowerPlayer (talk) was kind enough to create Fishing spot, vastly improved Lava Dome with info and images galore and improved Nintendo GameCube! Meanwhile 7feetunder (talk) added so much information to Shifting Sands and Archivist Toadette (talk) found a source for the claims on Il Piantissimo. Sadly, our image quality focus, File:SMS Artwork Wind Spirit.png went unfinished, but hopefully it'll be improved soon!

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Ice Banana Bunch
Wanted article
With temperatures skyrocketing, it must be nice to sit back and relax with an ice-cold snack, or even a bunch of them, like the Ice Banana Bunch from Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat, let's get some snacking and some bananas over here!
Yoshi's Crafted World
Stub article
There is a Yoshi-related article that needs fixing, so we should all know how I feel about that! The promotion section of this article needs a bit more info, more details on trailers, things revealed about the game in the lead-up to its release.
Ground Theme (Super Mario Bros.)
Rewrite and expansion required
We all love this iconic piece of Mario music, which appears in so many games, but despite it appearing in the remakes of Superstar Saga and Bowser's Inside Story, we haven't spoken about it, so let's get that info in there.
Kidnapped Components
Articles that need more images
Someone appears to have kidnapped the battle map for this Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle level, let's get it back in.
Image quality requested
Not only is the zoo ruined, but so is the quality of this image, we're going to need something a little bit crisper to replace this image first uploaded in 2010.
Toy Tank
Citation needed
General Guy is a memorable boss from Paper Mario but was his vehicle of choice, the Toy Tank actually ever called that, or did someone just make it up? Best find a source, otherwise this will need to be a conjecturally named article.

Now just before I leave you, I'd like to tell you about unimplemented proposals. There are currently thirty-four that need to be implemented, dating as far back as 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 Yoshi876 on his 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!
