Who can edit Edit

We encourage all to edit whenever possible.

Who can start a band's page? Edit

We would prefer it if you yourself were a member or publicist of a band (or stand alone artist) or know the band personally when creating their page. However, under certain conditions it is possible to create an artist page if you have no connection to them.

Conditions Edit

  • They are unsigned.
  • They are signed but not "big". (Delete nominations examined on case by case basis. See below)
  • They are currently active.

What if I feel creative? Edit

Never fear! Just because this is an encyclopedia type Wiki doesn't mean we don't have any fun! Edit your userspace page and customize it this cool templates and other stuff. And if you want a userspace for your band, feel free to create another account and link it to all your pages! You can even link back from your official pages to your userspace pages!


Basic Page Format Edit

Band Pages Edit

Band pages use the Info template. To use this template, simply type the following and fill in the blanks:

{{Info 
| Name                = 
| Image               = 
| Genre(s)            = 
| Years Active        = 
| Location            = 
| Influences          = 
| Label               = 
| Albums              = 
| Other               = 
| Lineup              = 
| Websites            =
}}

How each articles actual content is developed depends on the individual editor, but should be encyclopedic in nature. This means that statements like "This band rocks!" would be best left on your userpage, if you are a member of the band. If the artist is not a band but a stand alone singer, the Info template may still be applied. Unless they have released solo albums, it is best not to use the Info template on individual members of a band.

Look at the Famosiz article for a prime example of good editing.

Lyricists, Composers and Band Members Edit

If you are writing a page about a lyricist, composer or band members who do not have solo albums, no template is needed. Instead take a biographical approach to the article. See Matt Gates as an example.

Singles, Albums, EPs and More Edit

{{Infobox Album | 
| Name        =

|}}

Hottest Artists Edit

The hottest artist will be chosen after three nominations are received for each category. Users will vote to choose the winner based on

  • The band itself
  • Article Style
  • Article Accuracy (No "This band is the best!" comments)

For the sake of accuracy, if you started a band page (made the first edit) you may not nominate them.

Edit Summary Style Edit

We request that you please do not use profanities when summarizing your edits. Edit summarys should be clear and to the point, but that doesn't mean you can't have a little fun every once and a while.

Discussion Pages Edit

Discussion pages should be split into two groups, one section to discuss the article itself, and another as a forum of public discussion about the topic of the page. All off topic banter will be moved to the Public Discussions talk page or the appropriate discussion page. If necessary, such banter may be moved to the Graffiti Wall.

Nominations for clean-up, move, delete or otherwise Edit
