The 'Shroom Spotlight

by YoshiKong (talk)
Our mascot?

Hello readers! YoshiKong here with the Special Issue LXXV's edition of The 'Shroom Spotlight! For those of you who aren't yet familiar with the project, Spotlight is a monthly section which focuses on an article or a group of articles and highlights issues with it. Users can then collaborate to improve those articles. Progress which was undertaken during the month is discussed in the next issue, and new articles are put forward for improvement. So last month, we had our second edition of 'Shroom Spotlight edition in years, and I can honestly say that we were very pleased with the turnout. We focused on four different articles, each with a specific issue which needed attention. They were: Beanbean Kingdom (which needed more images), the Goombario article (which has an overly long Trivia section), Donuts and Eggs (a stub article) and Gearmo (which needed a rewrite). By the end of the month, we successfully completed each of our goals for all four articles, as recorded here! Thank you to all who participated. So, before we begin discussing the Spotlight for this month, we would like to announce a recently implemented template which will be used to assist the project: {{spotlight notice}}. From now onwards, this template will be put on articles during their time of being a 'Shroom Spotlight focus, linking to the associated section so users can easily view the project's goals for the month. Also, the Lakitu sprite seen on the template is a sprite from the game Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, which was the very first focus for the new 'Shroom Spotlight. We feel that since the sprite is from the game which brought the project back, as well as perfectly representing the Spotlight, are the reasons for it now officially becoming the project's symbol!

The focus for this month's edition is WarioWare: Smooth Moves.

So without further ado, the focus of this edition is WarioWare: Smooth Moves, as suggested by Glowsquid (talk). Coinciding with the pre-existing forum collaboration thread, we are aiming to do all we can to improve the article. As of now, considerable progress has already been made. But what remains are goals such as creating a "Multiplayer" and "Development" section, adding additional information and organizing the "Story" section through wikitables. As well as our focuses for the main game article, we are also aiming at improving the articles related to it, which includes creating pages for the missing minigames.

Everyone is welcome to help out with the project - no sign-ups necessary! But if you did wish to show your interest, feel free to post in the collab. thread. If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback on 'Shroom Spotlight, be sure to post a comment here. We'll be reviewing out progress on the WarioWare: Smooth Moves article in next month's edition. Thank you for reading, and enjoy the rest of the issue!
