Hello, everyone, and welcome to the August Issue of Pipe Plaza!! Unlike previous months, I actually have some news for you, so let's get to that now. As many of you may have noticed, the NIWA News section hasn't been featured in the paper since the April 2012 Issue, and it hasn't had a writer since last October. Thus, following a suggestion made by fellow staff member Superchao (talk), I have decided to remove NIWA News from the Pipe Plaza. That, however, doesn't mean the paper will not cover news from NIWA anymore; a special section may be written in the future for that purpose, should it prove necessary.
Section of the Month
The SotM poll from last issue got a total of 22 votes, eight more than the previous poll.
The July Section of the Month, with a whopping 15 votes (68.18% of the total) is...
...Upcoming Games, for the seventh time overall!!!
Following a tradition from the last two years, the July Issue of Upcoming Games covered all sorts of news from Nintendo's E3 conference, be it about new games or simply new details from previously announced games. This year, the Japanese company decided to hold a Nintendo Direct broadcast instead of the usual press conference, which, despite causing some controversy, allowed them to focus more on showcasing software. The second-placed sections were my Director's Notes, Featured, also written by me, and Projects Seeking Contributors, written by YoshiKong (talk), each one with 2 votes (9.09%), while YoshiKong also got third place with the single vote earned by his Community Report.
Well, I guess that's it for this month!! Now go on and read the other sections! I hope you like them!
Hey there, and welcome to the August Issue of Monthly Report! These are the wiki stats from August, July, and June, with additional July-August and June-August statistic comparisons.
(Credit goes to Stooben Rooben (talk) and Super Mario Bros. (talk) for the table coding. Stooben originally created it when writing this section back in Issues XXIII, XXV and XXVI, and SMB based his coding for Issues XXXIX, XL and XLI – which I am using in this issue – off of Stooben's coding.)
Keep a positive attitude! The MarioWiki is a community, and negativity is never appreciated. Always remember to consider what you're saying to someone, and never say something to purposely pick a fight with someone. If you antagonize others, they will come to resent you and they will not want to work with you in the future.
Hello, and welcome to the August Issue of Mario Calendar!! While writing this section, I was astonished at the amount of games released during the end of August, so that's my piece of information for you this month. :)
