Hello, readers, and welcome to the April Issue of Pipe Plaza!! This month, I do have news not related to Section of the Month, so let's get to that!
I had this in mind ever since the beginning of the year, but ended up forgetting about it for the past three months. I finally remembered to talk to the staff a few days ago, presenting my idea, and so we have decided to make UPdate, written by Super Mario Bros. (talk) as a guest section in the December 2013 Issue, a regular section in the Pipe Plaza Sub-Team. It will open for sign-ups immediately after this issue is released, so be sure to start working on an application if you're interested in the section!
Anyway, that's all for now about the team, so let's check this month's...
Section of the Month!!
The SotM poll from the last issue got a measly 9 votes. Please be sure to vote for your favorite section this month, guys!!
Anyway, the March Section of the Month, with 4 votes (44.45% of the total) is...
...Community Report, for an impressive fifth time in the past seven months!!!
Currently written by Driftmaster130 (talk), Community Report presents readers readers with all sorts of wiki-related news, such as new policies, promotions and demotions and proposals that have reached a consensus. The second-placed section was Yoshi876 (talk)'s Featured, with 3 votes (33.33%). Both Tip of the Month, written by FunkyK38 (talk), and Monthly Report, written by myself, got third place, with only 1 vote each (11.11% of the total).
And that's all, everyone!! I hope you like this issue!! See you in May!!!
Hi, everyone, and welcome to this month's Monthly Report!! I guess I have no special news to share with you guys, so let's see the wiki statistics from mid-February, late-February and March, along with comparisons between those sets of stats. Here they are:
(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.)
Hey folks, this is Driftmaster130, and I'm sorry to say that this is my last time writing this section because I'm leaving the community forever April fools jklololol it was two weeks ago but who cares bringing you April's edition of Community Report.
Not one, not two, but three changes to the wiki staff were made: Turboo (talk) was promoted from patroller to administrator for his great work fighting vandalism, Yoshi876 (talk) was made a patroller, and Phoenix (talk) was given a bureaucrat rank. Good luck to all of you.
Two new articles have failed the featuring process.
Coin failed on March 17th. This was because a lot of the sections were short, and the article was lacking images.
Diddy Kong failed on March 20th. This was because the nomination had been inactive for a month.
Two new articles have become unfeatured.
Princess Daisy was unfeatured on April 9th. It was unfeatured due to an awkwardly worded relationships section, many short sections, and too many images which made the article look cluttered.
Princess Peach was unfeatured on April 15th. It was unfeatured because some sections needed expansion, there weren't enough images, there were problems with tense and some speculation in the relationships section.
Whether writing an article, making a minor edit, leaving a comment on another user's page, or even just editing your own page, spacing can sometimes get very irritating. To avoid the blue dashed outline around your text that looks
be sure to never begin a line with a space-bar space. Using a tab space is fine, but the space bar will leave your text looking sloppy, unprofessional, and out of place.
