Director's Notes (Marioguy1 (talk))

Hey guys! Welcome to a wonderful month of March! It's time to tell you about a special project I've been working on for a while now. =)

If you're a member of the Pipe Plaza, you will have seen this background before, but if you aren't, I'm proud to say that the Pipe Plaza has a completely new format! It is coming into use this issue and will (hopefully) be used for all later issues. =)

Aside from that, we still have spots open for anyone who wants to join this glorifyingly awesome project! Oh yes, I just remembered, I also created a page about the Pipe Plaza for anyone who wants to know something about the past, present or future of the section. It can be found here!

Now, go on and read the amazing section!

PipeProjects Seeking Contributors (Yoshiwaker (talk))

The newest PipeProject this month is the "Fix up DKC/DKL series levels". Members of this PipeProject will expand more on Donkey Kong Country/Land levels. This PipeProject will also upload and add more pictures to the levels. It also will put pictures from different ports of the games.

Tip of the Month (FunkyK38 (talk))

Tip of the Month: When uploading an image, use a name that's easy for everyone to use. For example, if you're doing one of Luigi from Superstar Saga, use something like "Luigi SS 1" It should be relevant to your image and the game it's from.

Forum Update (Ralphfan (talk))

Hello again, Wikians and Forumites! (Oh, cool, I made up a new word.) This section is a bit shorter this month since our lovely forum staff created a name change log to do my job for me make things less complicated for the users now that people have the ability to change their own names on the forum. (To do this, go to Profile --> Account Related Settings.) Anyway, on to the news!


  • Multiple users have changed their minds about leaving the forums forever and have decided to be reasonable and use the site on moderation!

Upcoming Games (Paper Yoshi (talk))

Welcome, readers, to another issue of Upcoming Games! Paper Yoshi is here to cover some fresh news from San Francisco, the announcement all (at least the majority of) Mario fans were waiting for: a Super Mario game for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS!

Pics for next Mario 3DS game
Screenshots shown at GDP 2011
Not much was revealed by Nintendo of Japan's president, Satoru Iwata, aside from a few details. Super Mario (temporary title) is a 3-D platformer featuring elements from sidescrolling Mario series' platformers. ? Blocks, Brick Blocks and Small Mario, classic elements from the Super Mario Bros. series, appear in a screenshot of the game. Other screenshots show three levels: one has rotating multi-colored blocks, another has "elevator blocks" and the last one is similar to common early levels, such as World 1-1 from New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

More will be revealed at this year's E3, according to Iwata, including the feature referenced by a tail coming off the letter "O" in the logo, which resembles Raccoon Mario's tail.

I apologize for this very short section, but that really is all we know about Super Mario for the 3DS. On the next issue, we'll check the other Mario 3DS games: Mario Kart and Paper Mario.

NIWA News (RAP (talk))

Morning, afternoon, and evening Super Mario Wikians! This is RAP (talk) with the NIWA News. Activity surrounding the organization is pretty decent, but there are no new pieces of news with the exception of these very two:

  • Star Fox Wiki is about to celebrate it's first birthday at the 23 of Feburary. The wiki is currently in stage 3 regarding the merger with Arwingpedia; it currently has 144 articles, and 950 files.
  • And some sad news; Joshua Paul LeJeune, also known as Axiomist has died in Friday - March 19, 2011. He has been known for helping all aspects of NIWA from the start to going forward, being the founder of Wikirby, a former staff member at ZeldaWiki, and helping Metroid Wiki. Such news has been reported on ZeldaInformer, and Bulbapedia. We will miss you dude.

Apologies for the short section, but that's all I have right now. Until next month, I'll see you later.

Featured (Marioguy1 (talk))

Welcome to Featured! I’m typing this in a rush so I won’t take a long time to tell you that only one nomination came through this month. I won’t slow down when I tell you that the nomination was to unfeature Kirby and I won’t reduce my speed while telling you that it failed!

So that’s all for my section, and for this month's Pipe Plaza, goodbye until next month! Has anyone realized that my sections are getting shorter every month?Marioguy1 (Talk | Contribs) Has anyone realized that my sections are getting shorter every month?
