Retro Feature

by Tucayo (talk)

HI, readers! I’m your now-legal Statistics Manager, Tucayo, and welcome to the second installment of Retro Feature. This month, in spirit of the awards, we’ll take a look at none other than the creator of your Favorite Sub-Team, WarioLoaf.

WarioLoaf joined the wiki in November 23, 2006. He was a well-respected member of the community, being the one who first introduced user artwork, as well as the creator of the wiki's first "expanded" article. However, WarioLoaf had a thing for vandalizing the wiki. He was blocked in November 2008 by Stoob. He was then blocked for changing the content of many pages to “IM RUDNICKI MUHAHAHAAHAHAA”. After this ban ended, he did one of the most painful-to-restore troll attacks the wiki has ever had, redirecting and moving tons of pages, creating an almost-endless web of redirects. This resulted in him being perma-banned from the wiki.

But that’s not all about WarioLoaf. Before turning into a troll and vandal, he was a 'Shroom writer, the one to create our first Sub-Team, the Fake News. He wrote Fake News all by himself for Issues I, II and III. His Fake News included some of the sections you can see now, like Fake Games, Characters, Sports and Music. But it also included some sections that have been removed from the newsletter, such as the Obituaries, Poll of the Month, Headline and Local News and Rumor of the Month. Naturally, he was the first user to get to 10 sections written for a sub-team. And in Issue II, he also contributed with an Upcoming Games article.

A month before being banned for the second time, WarioLoaf returned as a guest writer in Issue XXVIII to write many of the sections he created and some that were created after him. This guest section includes Headline News, Fake Music, Fake TV, Fake Sports, Travel Guide, Fake Games, Wanted Poster (long gone), Fake Characters, Fake Weather, Obituaries, Fake Movies, Cooking Guide, Fake Gossip and Fake Interview. So here you have, WarioLoaf's Special Guest Section, from Issue XXVIII

If it weren't for WarioLoaf, the Fake News wouldn't exist. Thanks for everything, WarioLoaf!

I hope you enjoyed this trip to the past and I hope you learned something. You did, right? Don’t tell me you fell asleep halfway through my explanation… Anyways, see you next month, BYE!
