The 'Shroom:Issue XC/Retro Feature
Hello, readers! I'm your co-Spotlight manager and co-Pipe Plaza Director, Yoshi876. Welcome to Retro Feature, a section in which I delve deep into the archives to bring you the best blasts from the past. This time I bring you a section from my outgoing Pipe Plaza director, Paper Yoshi (talk), in fact it’s his first ever section!
Paper Yoshi joined the MarioWiki on 24th April 2008. Paper Yoshi made his ‘Shroom debut during Issue LXVI in Pipe Plaza. His first section was Upcoming Games, a section that had been absent from the paper for seven issues. He would go on to write this a further twenty six times, he even continued writing it after it was moved to the Main Team. Later on he would go on to become the Director for Pipe Plaza in Issue LX, a position he’d hold until this issue when he resigned. In other ‘Shroom ventures, Paper Yoshi wrote the Monthly Report in Pipe Plaza, as well as Featured and Mario Calendar (which like the Upcoming Games was later moved to the Main Team); he submitted a From The Mushroom Vaults section for the main team as well as other Core Staff sections; he submitted the Crossword for Fun Stuff and one non-Mario crossword; he also wrote Featured Character Artwork, Random Image of the Month and submitted a Sketch Related to Mario for Palette Swap and he wrote Ask Paper Yoshi for the Fake News, a section where users got to ask him various questions on various subjects.
However, you’re not here to learn about the history of Paper Yoshi, you’re here to a view a classic section from issues gone by, so without further ado here is Paper Yoshi’s first ever section, the Upcoming Games from Issue XLVI.
Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next month for another trip back in time.
