Examples

  • a
  • the
  • it
  • of
Corrections

If one of the verbs above is the first word of the title then it will be corrected automaticly by a bot.

Article Styles

Songpedia's articles that doesn't past these guidelines will be automaticly fixed by by an official bot or a bot that isn't official but is tasked by it's operator to fix these.

Parodies

Do not create made-up parodies here. This is not a parody site, this is a site for music. For example, Save Me to Shave Me that is not an official parody but a made-up one in Uncyclopedia. "Real" parodies like Another One Rides The Bus ("Weird Al" Yankovic), Moonlight Bay parody (The Beatles), Yesterday parody (John Lennon), etc.. are allowed. Please take not that all parodies' SongBox codes should have |parody = NON-PARODY SONG HERE! so that readers would know what song was it a parody of.

Solo Artist/Musician Biographies

These kind of articles are about the persons themselves. Please remember that the point of view should be YOUR point of view on telling a story about the person, opinions and single "I"s can only be on official quotes of the person. The article must have an infobox, contents, images, iTunes link, website, other needed information on the infobox, and categories.

Band Articles

Articles about bands should have information needed from the infobox, categories, and content. The content should be about THE BAND, it should also have the information of the band's history.

Cast Articles

The article's information must be about the cast and not about the TV Show or Film where they star in. Any cast articles that disobeys this guideline about casts will either be deleted, re-written by a voleenter, or re-written by you. Even if the information is reliable about the show, we are NOT a TV Show or Film wiki we are a music wiki, and it's not the show or film that makes the music, it's the cast!

Albums

Album articles must have at least one summary paragraph about the album, an infobox with filled things, the tracks in order, and categories.

Songs

Please see Help:Songs

Live Performances

Live performance articles should have an infobox, a summary, and sectioned content.

Films

Articles about films where artists have starred in should have an infobox, summary, plot, cast, and other useful information.

Games

Articles about musical games should have an infobox, a summary, the gameplay, and other valuable information.

Genre

Genre articles should have an infobox, a summary, the history, musical style, sub genres or related genres, how the music evolved, etc...

Non-Artist/Musician Biographies

Biographies about people who aren't musicians should be at least on-topic, for example the person is a person that contributed much on the life of a famous musician, or it's the manager of a band/artist. It should have an infobox, content about the person, and categories.

What Is Considered A 'Stub'?
