The 'Shroom Spotlight

by YoshiKong (talk)

Hello readers! YoshiKong here with this month's edition of 'Shroom Spotlight. So last month, we had our first 'Shroom Spotlight section in years. The section's focus was to help improve the Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga article, which was nominated to be unfeatured back in March this year, due to the article not reflecting Featured Article standards. Some of the main issues with the article were: the brief opening paragraph, the overly long Story section, and the empty sections, which needed to be filled as per policy. Throughout the month, we were able to take care of two of these three problems with the article, as recorded here. However, we do need more contributors to the project. If you are interested, then please read on!

For this month's issue of The 'Shroom Spotlight, we're going to have one page from each improvement category, so there's more variety with what users can choose to help out with. The articles are as follows:

  • Beanbean Kingdom (needs more images) – For those of you who wish to continue the "saga" from last month, this article requires more images. Specific sections of the article in dire need include "Government", "Areas" and "Species".
  • Goombario (long Trivia section) – The plumber-admiring partner who appears in Paper Mario, Goombario. The article currently has seven points of Trivia, many of which could easily be incorporated into the opening paragraph and the History section.
  • Donuts and Eggs (stub) – This level from the game Yoshi's Island DS is currently tagged as a stub. Although, compared to other articles in this improvement category, the length isn't too bad. But it's missing much-needed info on the level layout. The current content could also use a rewrite.
  • Gearmo (rewrite) – The article about these robots who first appeared in Super Mario Galaxy requires a rewrite, due to the abundance of flowery writing.

If you are interested in helping out with any of these articles, then be sure to contribute however you can! We'll be reviewing our progress next month. If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback on 'Shroom Spotlight, feel free to post a comment on the forum thread. Thank you for reading, and enjoy the rest of the issue!
