Due to an influx of spam accounts getting through and joining the site, user registrations have once again been disabled until further notice as we work on a different solution.



Welcome to the generasia Wiki! The main objective of generasia is to spread knowledge of Asian music and video. This wiki is open so that any registered member can edit or add to it. We actively encourage this. This is intended as a community project and is therefore yours to refer to and yours to create.

For those unaware, part of the idea of this wiki is to restore Wiki.thePPN's numerous articles in a usable format and build upon it. As thePPN has not returned since late 2008, this wiki has been fully endorsed by Womby (the original owner of thePPN) as its successor. This may cause some debate, but keep in mind that this site exists simply to create a comprehensive Asian wiki focusing on all aspects of the culture, including music, video, and even anime to some degree.

Where to Start?

You can browse the content of the Wiki by using the categories on the index. The search box above allows you to quickly locate artists, song titles, television shows and more. If you want to see the latest edits and additions, visit the Recent Changes page.

Interested in what is happening in the world of Asian culture? We are working to add a news section to the site. Stay tuned!

Important Editing Notes

Regular Wikipedia entries do not contain links to song and album titles, but as this is a music and media focused site please mark all songs, singles, albums, genres, soundtrack appearances, and so forth as links.

If a band (such as D'espairs Ray and Dué le quartz) has an alternate spelling, please make a redirect page for the alternate one. How to use redirects can be found here.

If you're new to Wiki coding, don't let that stop you from contributing. Others will help clean up, format and "Wikify" your contributions until you get the hang of the standards and practices used here.

More editing notes and tutorial links can be found on the Help page. Some stylistic guidelines can also be found on the Style Guide.

Asian Language Fonts

This Wiki uses Kanji on many pages. If you see a bunch of question marks in the articles, you do not have these fonts installed and are not getting the full experience of this site. The good news is that most common operating systems have many languages and fonts built in, and it's just a matter of enabling them somewhere in the "Language" section of the system control panel. Check the Help section for step-by-step system specific instructions.

Copyright Infringements

When composing or editing articles, especially with things like biographies, please do not simply copy and paste from other web sites without their permission.

Because anyone can edit this Wiki, instances of unauthorized content use from other sites can happen. If you're a webmaster and feel your content has been used here without permission, use the {{Infringement}} template tag to add an infringement notice to the article in question then add a new section to the Generasia:Infringement Notice page describing the grievance. The category Category:Copyright Infringement has been created to ease tracking for these matters.
