Forum Update (MrConcreteDonkey (talk))
Hello, and welcome again to Forum Update! Happy New Year! December certainly had some interesting stories for us on the Super Mario Boards, so let's get started right away.
Top Stories: Noah (Noahp89 (talk)) has been banned again, infinitely, from the MarioWiki Forum, after returning for only about a week. He was banned based on the content of some of his posts, and recent chat events. Baby Time (Mario Super Sluggers (talk)) and Marwikedor (Marwikedor (talk)) were also banned, both for a month.
The forum has changed its type of Spoiler tags ( (click to show/hide) ). Up until recently, to open them, they only had to be hovered over. Now, a button must be clicked to open them.
Statistics: In December, there were 863 new topics made, which is an all-time high. 36053 posts were made, 47 new users joined, and 134 was the largest amount of users online at once.

Tip of the Month (FunkyK38 (talk))
Tip of the Month: Using a signature when you leave comments makes it easier for the person you're trying to talk to to reply back. A good signature should contain a link to your talk page and your user page, and it shouldn't have huge pictures in it. Any other pages you link to shouldn't be pages intended to cause harm to the follower, whether by leading to an inappropriate page or site or a page that can send a virus to the other person's computer.
NIWA News (Marioguy1 (talk))
Hey guys! NIWA News has a new format! Whenever NIWA has news, the section will be present. But if there is no news, then the section will not be included.
So that means that this month, there have been a few newsworthy things and I am here to point them out to you!
While NIWA may not have a lot done this month, there are a ton of plans for the future so stay tuned!
