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.

876 (my rapper name) is back in the house after a month off after being swamped. No seriously, in an escape room gone wrong I got stuck in the marshes of Boo Bog for an entire month. Thankfully, some Boos eventually took pity on me and took me to the entrance - there's only so long you can torment a poor dinosaur with no way of fighting back. What do you mean look at my muscles? Have you ever tried punching a ghost? Thank you to Waluigi Time for stepping in at short notice and making sure we had something!

The focuses he selected were well thought out and we made some admirable progress with them. We thank Mason Popovich (talk) for creating Legendary hero, RHG1951 (talk) for clearing up the awful writing on Tutti Frutti, oh Mario, improving the quality on File:Doopliss.png and providing a source for the claim on Dixie Kong. Sadly, of our focuses, Cloud Cruising and Minecraft still need improvements.

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Super Golf Stadium
Wanted article
Following our success with Mario Golf: Super Rush let's get the final wanted article for this game sorted. It would be super to get this page on the last golfing stadium.
Blargg's Boiler
Stub article
Was Spotlight secretly invented just to improve our coverage of Yoshi games? Maybe. You know the drill, it's another level from Yoshi's Story that's missing a layout section.
Lakitu's Cloud
Rewrite and expansion required
We all love soaring through the skies on Lakitu's Cloud, but for some reason we don't have information on its appearance in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. A small oversight that can be easily fixed.
Lip Sync
Articles that need more images
Now there have been many legendary lip syncs on RuPaul's Drag Race, and I'm glad the wiki has seen fit to cover them. Wait, this is about a Gaddget in Mario Party Advance. Oh... Well, let's make sure we get the other characters' lips, not just Princess Peach.
File:NSMBU Sumo Bro Screenshot.png
Image quality requested
This blurry image of a Sumo Bro has been around since 2012. Surely, we have the capacity to make a lightning-sharp image of this enemy nowadays.
3DS Piranha Plant Slide
Citation needed
We love a bit of music, even if this track isn't one of our favourites. But are the claims in its trivia section about the music skipping true? Get your wheels on, and find out!

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