Hello, readers! I'm your Spotlight manager and 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 a Spotlight manager, Xzelion (talk)!

Xzelion joined the MarioWiki on 18th February 2007. Xzelion made his 'Shroom debut during Issue III in Fun Stuff. Xzelion’s first section was Jokes which had never been featured in The ‘Shroom before. Xzelion would write the Jokes only one more time before venturing into other sections. Xzelion would go on to write Fake Music, Headline News, Local News, Poll, Travel Guide, Updated Info, Wanted Poster and Interview. He would also go on to direct Fake News from Issue VII to Issue VIII, become Editor-in-Chief from Issue VII to Issue IX and be a Spotlight manager in Issue LI. Xzelion also found fame on the wiki, gaining the ranks of admin and Bureaucrat.

However, you’re not here to learn about the history of Xzelion, you’re here to a view a classic section from issues gone by, so without further ado here is Xzelion’s Interview section from Issue IX.

Xze: How'd you find the Wiki?
3D: I found it on the Wikipedia Mario article; I used to spend all my time there looking at all the Mario information... until I found that fateful link.

Xze: What was your first edit?
3D: I believe my first edit was something on the Sandbox (I can still remember the exact words: "OH, WOW!") I then went to patch up the Mega Mole article.

Xze: What is the craziest/funniest/wackiest thing you've done on the wiki?
3D: Getting into an argument with Uniju. Man, is that guy a total master of the comeback! We've made up since then, so I hope we won't have another one in the future.

Xze: What's better Donuts or Waffles?
3D: Krispy Kreme Double Glazes Chocolate Frosting Donuts.

Xze: What is your favorite thing to do on the wiki?
3D: My favorite thing to do is completely revamp pages; so far I've done that on the Wario and Yoshi Touch & Go articles; I have another one planned for DK: King of Swing.

Xze: Who is the weirdest user you've seen on the wiki?
3D: I'd have to say Sadaharu. That guy is random. More random than me, Moogle and Smiddle put together. And yet he holds it together with that strange literal style he has.

Xze: Which smiley is better icon_confused.gif or icon_eek.gif
3D: icon_eek.gif, for it expresses anger, shock and disgustedness, all of which i feel often.

Xze: Do you think this is the last question?
3D: No.

<for some reason beyond me the interview ended here>

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next month for another trip back in time.
