Awesome, I was going to ask what to do with those images. Hopefully I'll be able to begin work on this before the new year rolls round :)

Well the bad news is that imgur crapped itself with its hipster coding, so you can't use it anymore to upload Wii U gameplay screenshots.

Ok, first things first: I want to move all Featured Article archive pages to a more consistent naming scheme

MarioWiki:Featured articles/A/Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story -> MarioWiki:Featured articles/N1/Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

-/A/

+/N#/

And

MarioWiki:Featured articles/Archive/N1/Badge -> MarioWiki:Featured articles/N1/Badge

-/Archive

This may require some reordering, so I might need some admin help for moving pages.

I also think we should add a parameter to those archive notice templates rather than awkwardly putting a line of bold text just outside the template.

Shouldn't that also apply to TPPs with the "current time" parameter in that box?

I've nominated Paratroopa's article to be featured.

MarioWiki:Featured articles/Unfeature/N/Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

This article isn't exactly terrible, not like Mario Kart 64 terrible, but it could use SO much more for improvement to be featured on the main page, especially when two other RPG games, Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time appear to be in a far, far, far better shape than this article and they're both featured. This is coming from someone who has never played the game, though, so extra info on any potential missing content would be nice.

I've been trying to improve Mario Party Advance and eventually make it a featured article. Off the top of my head, I know that the story and game modes sections can still be expanded and there are still a couple of empty sections, but is there anything else that I should work on?

The article needs screenshots for the Game Modes and you need to write a gameplay section, talking about how you play the game. There's no explanation to how the game is played, so I'd like a section that deals with the Dice Blocks you get, the rock-paper-scissor minigame thing from Koopa Kids, how minigames are played, etc. I also think a map of Shroom City would suffice, so we know what "Seaside Section" exactly is.

This map from Spriter's Resource should do, right?

Yeah that's perfect.

You also need a table of the spaces you land on, like other Mario Party articles, like the yellow spaces or the dice block areas. Try looking at my Mario Party 6 article for some inspiration of how Mario Party Advance should ideally look like and edit accordingly.

I'm not sure a table for the spaces is necessary. There are four spaces, and one of them is a do-nothing space (unless a random event happens). I think that it would be better if I simply describe them in a section, and then use that as a launching point to talk about the rock-paper-scissors minigame and the Bowser blockade.
