The 'Shroom Spotlight

Written by: Waluigi Time (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.

Waluigi Time here again! The Super Mario Bros. Movie is out in theaters, which means... well for us it means we have a lot of work to do. None of our focuses this month are directly related to the movie per se, but if you've seen it, maybe you could help with our coverage of that too!

All of last month's focuses got completed this time around! Somethingone (talk) apparently had a field day, creating Super Golf Stadium, expanding Blargg's Boiler and Lakitu's Cloud, getting images for Lip Sync with additional help by TheRaoul1992 (talk), and finding a source for 3DS Piranha Plant Slide. We also have a much nicer version of File:NSMBU Sumo Bro Screenshot.png, sourced from New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe by MisterMarioYT (talk). Excellent work, everyone!

And now onto this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Chute, Score
Wanted article
This downloadable microgame from WarioWare: D.I.Y. is still missing an article 13 years later! Although it unfortunately can't be downloaded anymore, surely there's some footage out there somewhere. Think you can score a point for us by making this page?
Jakks Pacific
Stub article
Jakks has been creating Nintendo merchandise for almost a decade now, but their article is very short. With a new wave of merchandise for The Super Mario Bros. Movie out on store shelves, it's a good time to get some work done here.
Rewrite required
The only suspicious thing here is that all of their appearances throughout Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games have been crammed into a single paragraph! Breaking it up into something more readable shouldn't be too difficult of a task.
Bowser's Kingdom
Articles that need more images
If you're brave enough to enter the Koopa King's domain to pursue photography, some of the Checkpoint Flag locations don't have any images. Also, some of the images that are already here don't show the Checkpoint Flags at all, so consider grabbing some better shots of those as well.
Image quality requested
This image of Cat Mario is currently just an edited screenshot from Super Mario 3D World. Getting a proper render of his model would be purrfection.
Crocodile Cauldron
Citation needed
The article claims that the mine shaft levels of this world are used for mining gems and minerals by the Kremling Krew, but was this ever stated in official materials, or is it just fan speculation?

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