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.

Are you ready for adventure, for spookiness, for horror? If yes, then just look at all the articles in the maintenance tags, how horrifying! So, step into the shoes of a horror movie protagonist, before some masked attacker stops you from fixing six carefully selected articles. Make sure you bring popcorn, flashlights and whatever else features in a lot of horror movies, and let's make this Halloween a little less spooky for those terrified of a stub article.

Last month's Spotlight may have featured some more obscure touches, so I'm not surprised we didn't complete them all, but we certainly made a good amount of headway. I will admit, I was surprised to see that we created Amsterdam Diamond Center, but ThePowerPlayer (talk) created a solid article, and he also moved Party Host to its proper in-game name, which is Guide. Elsewhere, Scrooge200 (talk) vastly improved the quality on File:M&LDT Hint Command Block.png, while Killer Moth (talk) got rid of the section stub on Donkey Kong. When it comes to Web and Flopside, both articles have been improved since last month, and I would be tempted to remove their maintenance tags, but will leave that to the decision of you dear readers. But thanks to RHG1951 (talk) and Dine2017 (talk) for the improvements!

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Wanted article
Perhaps I'm being a little unfair in highlighting this article from an unreleased game, but his name sounds spooky and it's not like to you need to create this in week 1 of Spotlight going live. But let's make sure this vamp gets an article when the time comes.
Ghost Castle
Stub article
Yoshi's Story might not be the game you first think of for spooks and scares, but this level fits the bill, although a proper layout section might avoid some frights.
Spooky Scraps! Don't Get Spooked!
Rewrite and expansion required
Another layout section is giving me the creeps, let's make something that reads a bit better here.
Boo Ball
Articles that need more images
The amount of images on the article is probably just right, but I don't think a screenshot of its appearance in the original Luigi's Mansion would go amiss.
File:Golden Goob Newspaper.png
Image quality requested
We caught this Golden Goob reading the new edition of The 'Shroom. Wonder if he'll be shocked when we say we want this image recaptured and made a whole lot crisper.
Paranormal Dimension
Citation needed
Spooky scary ghosts, not skeletons, make this area its home, but much like last month is this an in-game term, or a conjectural name we conjured into existence. I hope we have an answer when the next Spotlight rolls around.

Now just before I leave you, I'd like to tell you about unimplemented proposals. There are currently thirty-one 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 me on my 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!
