Director's Notes (Paper Yoshi (talk))

Hello, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the May Issue of Pipe Plaza!! As with last month, I have news for you, so let's not waste time!

After a lot of thinking, and with all the problems I've been facing for a long time, I decided it was time to change. I clearly couldn't do this on my own anymore, so I started looking for crazy users who wanted to work alongside me. After considering the options we had, the staff and I finally chose the new Co-Director around last month's issue release.

Although he's already part of the team, please welcome Yoshi876 (talk) as the new Pipe Plaza Co-Director!! He has done a great job both as Co-Manager of the 'Shroom Spotlight (along with GBAToad (talk)) and as Featured writer, so I'm certain he'll greatly help the Pipe Plaza team...

...starting right now! Yoshi876 will begin his duties as Co-Director by presenting you guys the Section of the Month results this time around. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this issue! See you in June!!

Co-Director's Notes (Yoshi876 (talk))

Thank you Paper Yoshi, it will be great working alongside you.

So without further ado, here are the results for last month’s Section of the Month. Community Report, written by Driftmaster130 (talk) came first with 5 votes; Featured written by myself got second place with 4 votes; whilst Monthly Report, written by Paper Yoshi (talk) and Tip of the Month, written by FunkyK38 (talk), both got third both gaining 1 vote.

Monthly Report (Paper Yoshi (talk))

Hello there, and welcome to another issue of Monthly Report!! I still have nothing new to announce, so let's check the Mario Wiki stats from February, March and April, followed by March-April and February-April 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.)

Featured (Yoshi876 (talk))

Hello, Shroom readers, and welcome to Featured. I can’t come up with anything witty to say here so just enjoy the section.

Featured Articles

Two new articles have been featured in the past month.

Re-Featured Articles

No new articles have become refeatured.

FA Nominations

There are six ongoing Featured Article Nominations.

Failed FA Nominations

Five new articles have failed the featuring process.

  • Baby Donkey Kong failed on April 19th. It failed because the article was bare, and without padding the opening paragraph would be too short.
  • Gus failed on April 19th. It failed because it didn’t have enough images, game screenshots mainly, and it was also padded.
  • Shadow Queen failed on April 22nd. It failed because a lot of the writing was awkwardly worded.
  • Queen Bee failed on May 3rd. It failed because the article looked too short.
  • Mario Party 7 failed on May 16th after being inactive for a month.

Unfeatured Articles

No new articles have become unfeatured.

Unfeaturing Nominations

There is one ongoing Unfeaturing Nomination.

  • Culex was nominated on April 2nd.

Failed Unfeaturing Nominations

Two new articles have failed the unfeaturing process.

  • Beldam failed on April 25th.
  • Geno failed on April 27th after being inactive for a month.

Thanks for reading see you next month, for more Featured Articles news.

Tip of the Month (FunkyK38 (talk))

One of the most frustrating mistakes a new writer can make is writing a major article on a game, say, its story mode, then trying to submit it to the wiki only to see that their session has timed out. Trust me, I know how that feels. For an easier time, try typing your article in a word-processor first. That way, you'll get spelling proofread for you!
