The 'Shroom:Issue LXXXVIII/The 'Shroom Spotlight
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Hey there 'Shroom racers, welcome to the 'Shroom Pit Stop...er...Spotlight! Before you hit the track and drive around the rest of our special issue, it's always a good idea to get your kart serviced and ready to handle any Green Shells that may come your way (trust us, there will be plenty). Need to change your oil or construct a better kart before racing off to our other articles? Our handy crew of Toad supervisors should be able to sort you out, but here in the 'Shroom Pit Stop, our specialty is repairing the wiki's articles until they're good enough to drive (but not really!)
Every month, we select a handful of articles and images for our faithful editors to improve, be it removing unnecessary trivia from the fuselage, refueling an empty article with info and images, or building missing articles from scratch. We don't really fix articles in record time (a month at the latest), but our quality is guaranteed, check out all the previous work that's been done!
Last month, we dealt with five run-down articles and one image, and our editors completely fixed more than half of them! Our images focus, Super Mario Bros.: Peach-hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen!, has been illustrated with plenty of screencaps from the film; a replacement for our image-quality focus was uploaded by Dashbot (talk), who also built our Wanted focus, Sinking Feeling (minigame), from scratch! A special thanks to Dashbot, and thanks to everyone else who contributed to our article focuses last month!
In honour of this month's special issue dedicated to Mario Kart 8, we've chosen a crazy 8 Mario Kart-themed articles to bring to the pits, and hopefully we'll have ‘em tuned up and racing at full quality by next month’s issue!
And your kart’s looking good to go! Be sure to pull in next month for an oil change and the results on our 8 focuses. Contact us if you have any questions, comments or ideas, or pull around to our dedicated forum thread to message us. Looks like the rest of the issue is about to begin, so remember to drive safe, and always keep a Super Horn on hand to conquer those dreaded Spiny Shells!
