Welcome Kongs and Kremlings to this month’s bananatastic edition of The 'Shroom Spotlight! To those of you who’ve been living in a cave (or on Crocodile Isle) for the past nine months, The 'Shroom Spotlight is a dedicated community project that aims to improve a selection poor articles and images on the wiki each month by drawing attention to them in this section. It's barrels of fun*, really**! If you crave pointless reading, refer to this handy-dandy page for extra information about the Spotlight and its goals.

*Please note that The 'Shroom has prohibited the recreational use of Barrels due to glaring health and safety issues. Please understand.

**Fun not guaranteed. Results may vary.

As most of our veteran readers would know, last month was our first Spotlight of the year (and our first Spotlight not leaded by YoshiKong since the project’s revival), in which we introduced three new article focuses: rewrite-expand, quality requested, and Wanted pages.

Unfortunately, five of our focuses were barely touched, but our stub focus, Densetsu no Starfy 3, received a remarkable amount of input! Thanks to a certain frozen Mario expy, the article is no longer a stub, and even has its own staff list! Well done! Be sure to check it out when you have the chance, and remember that even if we aren’t focusing on an article anymore, you can still help contribute to it afterward, because it certainly won’t go unnoticed!

This month, to celebrate the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, we'll be focusing on articles relating to the big ape himself, Donkey Kong!

  • Jungle Hijinks (stub) – This is the final world in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. Don’t let the name fool you, there are no hijinks here, or much of anything else really. It desperately needs a level list and a proper infobox to bring it up to standard.
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (rewrite) – Three D's is what we feel this article deserves. One D for its short synopsis, another D for its lacking Characters and Enemies list (A nicely coded table would do it the world of good), and the final D for its Differences and Additions section, which needs to be completed and reworded in some parts. Help this article return to a fantastic standard!
  • Banana (rewrite-expand) – Banana needs an expansion *insert your own dirty joke here*.
  • Donkey Kong Land (needs more images) – Donkey Kong Land is currently an FA, but it needs more images or it to retain this. Trek out into a land of mystery to find them.
  • File:Acrobatic Banana.PNG (quality requested) – This is an image of Diddy Kong doing the Acrobatic Banana move, however, it is fairly blurry and also has some weird rainbow thing on it, seriously what is that?
  • Mt. Dynamite Remix (Wanted pages) – Mt. Dynamite Remix is a course in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. Give it a dynamite of an article.

And those are our article focuses for this month. Be sure to contribute however you can! Contact either one of us or post in this forum thread if you have any questions, comments, bananas or concerns. Thanks for reading!
