The 'Shroom:Issue LXXIII/Directors' Notes
Hello everybody, welcome to The 'Shroom! We are currently at the April 2013 issue, and we have quite a number of things that we are working on and implementing and whatnot.
I would like to welcome back Kibago (talk) (Edofenrir) as the Sub-director! He served The 'Shroom honorably during his last term in this capacity, and I know that we will do an excellent job again and that his addition to the staff team will allow us to grow and move forward. It is great to have the opportunity to work with him again. I would also like to welcome YoshiKong (talk) as the Spotlight Manager— we are finally going to dust off The 'Shroom Spotlight, reform it, and make progress. YoshiKong is experienced with matters of the community and will undoubtedly be a great asset to both the Spotlight project and The 'Shroom overall. And we bid a warm farewell to RandomYoshi (talk), who did the best that he could during his time as Statistics Manager and retired recently, and hope that he is able to accomplish what he needs to get done in his life. Mario4Ever (talk) is the new Statistics Manager, and has the competence and ability to carry out his duties well. Welcome to the team, everybody!
We have finally implemented the Manual of Style. What this document does is set forth a standard which the sections included in the paper must follow. They are not too intrusive or anything that will be incredibly hard to follow, but are simply base standards to ensure that each section looks decent and is formatted correctly. We hope that this will also be a good tool for the writers to use to be able to edit and preview their sections before they submit them.
The final item that I will cover this month is an important announcement: we will be having a Special Issue this June. It will be the 75th issue of The 'Shroom that has been released, and so we feel that it is an important time for The 'Shroom. We will be working extensively on the Special Issue for the next few months, and will make this one of the best issues yet. We hope to have a lot of fun and interesting features that will make it a very worthwhile read. As the Special Issue approaches, more news will be covered about it.
Thank you so much for reading this month. Please be sure to read Tucayo's and Edofenrir's notes below, and check back in on May 18th, 2013! We hope to bring more news about other projects that we have been working on.
Until next month,
HI, amazing people who read us! I'm your royal Co-director, Tucayo, bringing you this month's notes. Last month was pretty busy for us at the Core Staff; we have been working non-stop on several projects, some of which are secret. I have a lot to cover, so let's get started:
