Things continue to roll on for this wiki, with a surge in new articles thanks to the remerging of DKWiki articles (more on that in news).

The big news this month is the remerging of the DKWiki and sticking to one wiki for multiple series, including Mario, DK, Wario, Yoshi, Banjo, Conker, and Super Smash Bros. The Importance Policy should acquaint anyone what each of these series means to this wiki. We are still the Super Mario Wiki – nothing's changed. The result of this remerging was an increase in the number of articles and pages created in January, as shown above.

However, there is an issue with the upcoming game Diddy Kong Racing DS, which replace Banjo and Conker (their only tie to the Marioverse is through Diddy Kong Racing, the original) with Tiny and Dixie Kong. Since the storyline is the same as the original game, similar to the DS version of Super Mario 64, there is no way to tell which is more canonical until the game comes out on Tuesday February 5th. If the DS version is a sequel (separate story), then both are canonical. If not, however, whichever is determined more canonical by the community will decide whether the Banjo and Conker series stays.

The wiki's closing in on 5000 files uploaded and even 5000 articles. Those goals are expected to be reached this and next month respectively.

Thanks to the efforts of Knife (talk), we now are also affiliated with The Mushroom Kingdom and Mario Fan Games Galaxy (Kelt (talk) also helped for this affiliate) in addition to Super Mario Bros. HQ.

As a final note, I remind all of you about the MKDSummer Event. It's still many months away, but we never know about drop-outs early. We need 100%-certain players ASAP.
