The 'Shroom Spotlight

Written by: RHG1951 (talk)

Hello, all you 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.

I'm RHG1951 and this is my first month as The Shroom's new Spotlight manager. As a contributor to the Spotlight's focuses in the past, I am very excited to be in this role! And just because I've taken on this role doesn't mean I'll stop fixing articles with maintenance templates.

Unfortunately, most of last month's focuses were left untouched, but silver linings are also important. On the Time Limit article, ThePowerPlayer (talk) added info for the two Super Mario Land games and Wario Land, Dwhitney (talk) added info for both Super Mario Galaxy games, and I added info on the first two Mario vs. Donkey Kong games prior to my promotion.

Let's get back into the swing of things with this month's focuses:

Article Category Focuses
Rendezvous on Ice
Wanted article
While our coverage on Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix has gotten better in recent months, it's still incomplete! Don't let this article's creation be put on ice.
Pi'illodium X
Stub article
Unlike its other Battle Ring counterparts, this article is missing the differences from the original fight. Chance of being expanded: 120% (hopefully).
Rewrite and expansion required
The best part of playing any Mario Party game is spamming the taunt button to annoy everyone, but there's no mention of it in the article. The section for Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash and Mario Tennis Aces is also quite bare.
Pix Fix
Articles that need more images
All this article needs is an image of the 1-vs.-2 variant of the minigame. Will you be the one who fixes this pick?

Image quality requested
It may look like there's no issue with this image at a glance, however the ending to Wario Land doesn't look like this. I'd ask the genie to replace it, but I don't have enough coins.
Poison Mushroom
Citation needed
With the recent announcement of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door's remake, coverage on the game should be brought up to snuff. Is the Feeling Fine badge really unnecessary for the Poison Mushroom to heal?

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