Director's Notes (Paper Yoshi (talk))

Hello, readers, and welcome to the first Pipe Plaza of 2014!! I'd like to thank everyone who supported us throughout 2013, and I wish you all the best this year!!

Unfortunately, 2014 starts with bad news for the Pipe Plaza team. YoshiKong (talk), our dedicated Community Report and Projects Seeking Contributors writer, has decided to retire from the community, and so this will be his last month as a Pipe Plaza writer. Thanks for all your hard work during those 14 months in the Pipe Plaza team, YoshiKong!! I wish you the best luck in your efforts outside the Mario Wiki community!!

Section of the Month

December's SotM poll got a measly 7 votes, so I urge you to vote for your favourite section in this month's poll!!

The December Section of the Month, with 3 votes (42.86% of the total), is...

...UPdate, for the first time ever!!!

UPdate, which was written last month as a guest section by 'Shroom Co-Director Super Mario Bros. (talk), aims to present readers with updates on Userpedia's ongoing projects, such as improvement projects and updates to the community's comics and stories. However, as last month marked UPdate's first appearance in the Pipe Plaza, Super Mario Bros. decided to talk about what Userpedia is, telling readers a bit about its history. Community Report, written by YoshiKong (talk), and Monthly Report, written by myself, got second place, earning 2 votes each (28.57%).


And that's all for now, everyone!! I really enjoyed being in charge of the Pipe Plaza team for my second term, and I wish whoever is chosen to be the Pipe Plaza Director for 2014 the best luck in his/her efforts!! See you around, guys!!

(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.)

Not many happenings to report on since last edition, asides from the retirement of Henry Tucayo Clay (talk): a long-serving wiki admin and 'Shroom director. We wish you the best of luck for the future, and we hope you return someday! On another note, I'm also retiring from the community in the coming weeks, and this will be my last Community Report section. Thank you to everyone who have put up with my section all these months!

Tip of the Month (FunkyK38 (talk))

When editing on the wiki, be sure to use good grammar and spelling. Not only is it easy to read, it makes the article, and the wiki itself look more professional.
