Good day to you ‘Shroom readers. Welcome to Pipe Plaza, here we will handle all of your statistics and other wiki-related things. Please note, we are only a sub-section in a newsletter not an actual plaza. All mail sent to the actual Pipe Plaza doesn’t actually come to me.
Many of you may remember the Monthly Report, which looked over a lot of wiki statistics. Well that has now returned with Viper26 (talk) as the new writer, so look forward to stats, stats and more stats.
If you wish to join Pipe Plaza, look over here, pick a section you think you could do, so long as someone doesn’t already write for it, and PM me here.
Section of the Month
Last month we unfortunately lost one voter so we only have five people voting last month. Four of you voted for Anniversary Announcements written by Lakituthequick (talk), whilst the remaining vote went to New Articles written by Lumastar (talk).
Hello 'Shroom readers, Viper26 (talk) here, and welcome to the next era of The Monthly Report. I will show you the statistics of the wiki for April, 2015 and July, 2014, when the last time this section was written. I am comparing this month's statistics to August's statistics because I do not have statistics for March. So, without further ado, here are the statistics for July, 2014 and April, 2015.
The preview button is your friend! Use it wisely to proofread your edits before submitting them. You'll look better if you just make one edit to an article instead of four to correct a few grammar mistakes you made.
Welcome to this month's issue of New Articles. First, I would like to thank all of the people that helped create all of these articles over the last month. Your work is appreciated, and I hope that you will continue to work hard at whatever you do.
I'll make the summary quick: Minigames. Okay, that would be a very weak summary, but that's what the massive majority of new articles over the last month were about. Mario Party 10 has clearly given us more work to do here on the wiki, but we seem to be making great progress! This month also featured more new articles for Mario Party: Island Tour, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, as well as a few other games. Out of the articles that were created this month, the one that surprised me the most was Ice Swooper. The Ice Swooper is an enemy that appears in Super Mario Galaxy, and I was a bit shocked to see that the article hadn't been made yet. It just goes to show that sometimes wanted articles aren't always tied to the newer games.
Gooood day my dear audience. If you are wondering what we as AC have done in the past month, then you have come to the right place.
What I left you with last month, the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series in A21 Favorite Puzzle Game. It has been decided that they will remain one element instead of being split into the separate games.
Then we had A8 Favorite LuigiGame that we removed last month. In it's place will come Favorite Art Direction, which includes different art styles that the Mario series has seen over the years. See the detailed meeting logs below for the nominees.
We also refilled U7 Favorite 2014 Awards Presentation to be with the times, and removed Yoshi's Woolly World from current polls and added it back to A9 Most Anticipated Upcoming Game, because of dates given in the Nintendo Direct of 1 April.
Then for the meetings that happened in the past month. In Meeting 3 we renamed A23 Favorite Kong to Favorite DK Character and we removed A25 Favorite Portrait Ghost. And then we split A30 Favorite Game into two, Classic and Modern. A complete list of Awards and Nominations can be found right here.
In between these meetings, aforementioned topic was used to vote on other Boss Battles. Then we continued on the Fail Awards, which we finished entirely in one sitting. We just need to get back to a new Award for F11 Worst Galaxy, which was removed.
The replacement for F11 has been established in Meeting 6, being Biggest Missed Opportunity, based on the suggestion by Walkazo (talk). For the Userpedia Awards, the UP Staff has made adjustments at their own times, of which the results have been run through by the AC in this meeting. U8 Favorite Userpedia Character was removed and replaced by Favorite Mafia Game. U10 was renamed and redefined as Outstanding Community Achievement Award.
