When linking releases please note that the we use the same policy as thePPN, where pages with crazy spelling should be like THiS. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 13:31, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

When refering to an artist within the article please refer to them by their family name. Also, albums should be listed before the singles in the discography. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 20:49, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Oricon problem

I was looking over some of your recent pages when I saw the page for "Cinderella-tachi e no Dengon". I was wondering where you got the Oricon information for it from. I've always heard that there have only been two female artists to reach #1 with a debut single: Uchida Yuki and Takahashi Hitomi. It would also be ideal to put a official reference for the information in the external links of the page. Please also include an Oricon Profile for release, when avaviable (they arn't always with the older stuff).

Also when uploading covers please use categories. Category:CD Cover is used with all covers the we also have Category:Single Cover and Category:Album Cover. The 8cm singles also have an additional category, Category:8cm Single Cover. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 16:00, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

I don't know the exact number, but there are more than two. Sawajiri Erika and Yakushimaru Hiroko are also the only female soloists to have both their first two singles reach #1 (if you count Erika's "Taiyou no Uta" single). [1] --Lambchopsuey 16:56, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Oh, okay. It must be that Uchida Yuki and Takahashi Hitomi are the only ones to have their debut singles reached #1 during their first week. Now I remember "Ihoujin" also reached #1, but I don't think until a coulpe weeks in. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 18:08, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, the #1 on the Cinderella-tachi e no Dengon refers the highest it went to (not exactly if it went #1 on the first week or later on). I will try to source everything (I will also try do Oricon profile for the late stuff because like you said, Oricon doesn't list anything before late 90s. Do you want to put up maybe Yahoo Music Japan Profile because those go back till 1988) but here are the links that I use with help from the Japanese Wikipedia (They are pretty accurate with most of the ranking numbers): 1 and 2 (This site is pretty superb in Oricon details). --Aisasami 01:10, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
For the CD cover categorys, singles should have both Category:CD Cover and Category:Single Cover (if it's an 8cm those two + Category:8cm Single Cover), and albums should have Category:CD Cover and Category:Album Cover. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 02:33, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
I am trying to do it but I forgot a lot (I don't do this often anymore due to schoolwork and this is a new thing to me, takes time getting used to it). I am verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry sorry if I don't add because I forget. :( <3 Feel free to add the tags if I do. But, how about vinyls? You don't have a tag for vinyl covers?
I think we do have a category for that. It's Category:____ Records (input year instead of the underline), but nobody has created them yet. ~ CrypticTokyo 08:00, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
Is it alright if I start to create the record categories when I do new singles/albums pertaining records? --Aisasami 08:04, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
Go ahead, that way it'll get done :) --CrypticTokyo 08:06, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Images of records get the Category:Record Cover and the single that was released on a record recieves the Category:1987 Records (or whatever year it was released). Also please list the price of the releases. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 07:01, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

I can try but it is really hard to find some of the prices for records that were released 20 years ago.
I know sometime the price can be hard to find, but i noticed that many of the recent covers you've upload have them listed. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 07:06, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Titles

Please use quotation marks when refering to shorter works such as singles and songs, and use italics for longer works such as albums, DVDs, TV shows, and films. On song pages we are no longer bolding titles, and we don't use the "Information" heading. Also please use "Music" instead of "Composer" as it works more with the other headings. Here are some song page examples. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 00:47, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Ok, didn't know since I was following what people did for the Hamasaki Ayumi songs. --Aisasami 00:50, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Those pages must not have been changed yet, I'll have to go through them when I get a chance. Also please use "Song Information" instead of "Credits" on the single pages. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 00:55, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Please use "Music" as it matches all the other song pages that are being created. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 00:22, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Again, Please use quotation marks when refering to shorter works such as singles and songs, and use italics for longer works such as albums, DVDs, TV shows, and films. Here are some song page examples. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 01:38, 1 June 2010 (CDT)

Song credits

When you create a page for someone who writes a variety of things like lyrics, music, arrangement (instead of just one of those things) please list what part of the song they contributed to (Examples). The Japanese wikipedia usually lists this information. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 07:51, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

I will try but please know that these are a work in process because I won't get a full idea of what has done till I do that song's page (As Japanese Wikipedia has proven to have many mistakes in listing credits.) --Aisasami 01:12, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Go ahead and list what credits they have on the Japanese wiki. As you create the pages, if there are any mistakes, then you can correct them. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 00:22, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Order

Please when creating a page for a release, put the Catalog Number first and below the Price, and not the other way around. Also leave a double space after the Tracklist and before the Information. Thanks.--Pizca 21:33, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Matsuda

First of all, thank you so so SO much for helping me with Matsuda's pages ^^. I just wanted to tell you that if you see any title wrong (which it would happen xD) when you move the page, please correct also the pages that link to it, mainly to avoid redirects and also to not have those titles wrong in other pages.--Pizca 06:14, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Oh sorry, I just saw you already did on North Wind album.--Pizca 06:17, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Some notes

I've brought a lot of this up before, but I guess I'll just have to mention it again.

  • Use "Music" instead of "Composition" or "Composer" when listing song credits.
  • Use quotation marks when referring to shorter works such as singles and songs.
  • Use italics for longer works such as albums, DVDs, TV shows, and films.
  • On song pages please use the same headings as the song information on the single pages: "Lyrics", "Music", and any other credits under "Other Information".
  • Use "Oricon Profile" instead of "Oricon Page", we have ALWAYS listed it this way.
  • There is not need to say "Blah Blah Blah is a thing released by the group/artist/singer Artist. "Blah Blah Blah is a thing released by Artist" will suffice.
  • When you say something like this: "reached #74 on the weekly Oricon chart for four weeks" it makes it sound as the release stayed at #74 for those four weeks. I'd re-phrase it more like: "reached #74 on the weekly Oricon chart and stayed on the chart for four weeks."
  • Numbers 1-10 should be written out, once you enter teens it looks cleaner to use the numbers.
  • If you are making a song page for a song with different versions, make a disambiguation section.

~ Themonkeyofdoom 02:24, 4 June 2010 (CDT)

I been really busy these past few months but I been doing some of these already (especially the quotes and italics). I am not always perfect and I make a lot of mistakes here. I have been going back to my older page this week to comply with the edits because I was unsure of the edits or that I forgot about it (and after doing so many edits, I lose my mind and forget things because I am tired. I can't catch all the mistakes I make even after I double look). I don't know what is the perfect format because I am going off other pages (that seemed to have "incorrect" format because they are based on the old thePPN format). I might not be cool or hip like the other members can be but I try my best here. But if you hate me here, just tell me.

* On song pages please use the same headings as the song information on the single pages: "Lyrics", "Music", and any other credits under "Other Information".

Someone said that using "Song Information" was suffice or I saw it on other older pages.

* If you are making a song page for a song with different versions, make a disambiguation section.

It's my fault that I was really lazy on this part. I did it with the MAX pages (if you saw) but didn't do with some of the DCT pages. I have been doing this but I been lazy, sorry.

--Aisasami 22:02, 21 July 2010 (CDT)

I don't hate you. I've just noticed all of these things happing a lot, so I'm pointed them out. Many of which I've tried to point out and change while you were creating pages, but I understand that most people don't check the recent changes as often as me. I'm just pointing out the things I see so that we can try and make this wiki constant, I've also done this to other artists. I know there are a lot of old pages, that are not correct, but we are still in the process of fixing them. Sorry if I made you feel attacked. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 23:01, 21 July 2010 (CDT)

Misunderstanding?

I think I mentioned this before, but I guess you misunderstood. Song credits on single pages go under "Song Information" heading and should be divided up into "Lyrics", "Music", and everything else under "Other Information".

So it should look like this:

Song Information[edit]

Lyrics
Artist
Music
Artist
Other Information
Arrangement: Artist
Mixing: Artist
Whatever else, blah blah blah: Artist
Themonkeyofdoom06:16, 26 July 2010

Then how come the Namie Amuro and Hamasaki Ayumi (and others) pages has this style:

Song Information[edit]

Lyrics
xx
Music
xx
Arrangement
xx

I used to do the way you wanted (see my MAX and DCT pages) but I got confused when I saw the major pages doing the style above (because I thought they up-to-date with Wiki standards).

Aisasami06:24, 26 July 2010

A lot of those pages were edited by a user who no longer contributes here, and all of their edits are from over a year ago. Hamasaki's pages look like they go back and forth between the two formats. They should be changed and Amuro-san is actually on my to-do list. The format I gave you is the new standard, which all of our main contributors go by.

Kana titles

Please leave the kana for the title of the releases.

Themonkeyofdoom07:08, 23 July 2010

Are you ok with that? I felt that I was repeating myself if I had the kana in the title of the release and then a few lines later, it reappears in the tracklist once again (like the single's name and etc), causing clutter on the page.

Aisasami07:13, 23 July 2010

It's fine. What me and some of the other users have been doing is putting the romaji and kana for the title under the release, and then again in the tracklist with the translation. I don't use the kana if there are remixes or karaoke versions of the title track though.
