AboutEdit

State of the listings as of April and May 2016Edit

The song list pages have been through a number of changes and will continue to change until the pages can provide an easy editing experience for contributors and a clean visual for visitors.

Changes

  • March 2, 2015‎ - All the song pages were sorted into two categories: "Category:Song lists for originals" and "Category:Song lists for covers" by the {{Nav Music directory/Songlist}} template.
  • June 20, 2015 - The utilization of {{vcolor}} has been added.
  • June 21, 2015 - The template, {{Navbar Songlists}}, has been arranged by engine generation and alphabetizes by VOCALOID name.
  • April 5, 2016 - All the song pages were renamed from "Songlist/VOCALOID name (___)" to "VOCALOID name/___ songs list".
    • April 5, 2016‎ - The linkage to "Songs featuring VOCALOID name" has been added.

How to contributeEdit

Getting startedEdit

To contribute to the listing of adding songs that feature commercially released voicebanks, please read the following.

1. If page for a commercially released voicebank is not available on the wiki, head to the Song lists layout page and create a listing by clicking 'add a page'.

1.1 Title the page: "VOCALOID name/___ songs list".
1.2 Edit {{Navbar Songlists}} and add the latest vocalist (logo and navigation links). Notice that the {{Navbar Songlists2}} is specifically reserved for Hatsune Miku and Kagamine Rin/Len, please do not add any other VOCALOID to this template until they've too have reached the requirement of being featured in hundreds of songs.
1.3 Edit {{Nav Music directory/Songlist}} and add the latest vocalist to their respective company.


Template usageEdit

2. All song list pages use {{SongID}}, please study how this template works. Notice that you should not add a raw link or surrounded links to a song without using this template.

2.1 The current layout is as followed: *{{SongID |Title |Producer |Singer |Link}}
2.1-1 The title is to be copied exactly as its upload and is to be displayed in its language of origin with a qualifier.
2.1-2 The producer (the primary manipulator of the voicebank) should be present. Notice that while older song list pages have the producer's name missing, do not follow this- as rightful credit should be given at all times.
2.1-3 The singer(s) should be present. Notice this includes which voicebank was used as well as additional vocalists.
2.1-4 The link is to be obtained from its original upload location! While reprints are allowed, it is encouraged that the original source is present.
2.2 Make sure a song is listed by classification of being an "Original" or a "Cover".
2.3 Make sure the song entry is listed under its proper section following its title. Notice that a song titled "별 (Byeol)", will go in the ===B=== section not the ===S=== section due to translation of its title, "Star".

What to do and not to doEdit

PoliciesEdit

Do notice that the Vocaloid wiki encourages producers to use legal software, this supports the product and prevents barring of linking to unsavory methods of VOCALOID usage.

3. Above all, unless otherwise stated in the summary section, Do Not remove original works from the song lists. Any history of VOCALOID usage is vital to its history.

3.1-1 If an original song is no longer available to the public then simply make mention of this somewhere in the entry. Do not remove the entry in its entirety.
3.1-2 If a cover song is no longer available to the public then it can be removed in its entirety.
3.2 Visiting producers, be they original composers or cover artists, are allowed to add their works to song lists pages out of pure self-promotion. This is to deter creating song articles and adding to the derivative templates without being critiqued for main space visibility.
3.3 Multiple linkage to original songs is allowed.
3.3 Multiple linkage to cover songs is allowed and they should be listed by the song title followed by use of a double asterisk.
3.3 Linkage to reprints of songs are allowed depending on their status, especially if a song has become unavailable through its original source. However, take copyrights into consideration.
3.4 To reiterate:
3.4-1 ' Do ' link existing song pages from Original song listings.
3.4-2 ' Do Not ' link existing song pages from Cover song listings.
3.4-3 ' Do Not ' link Producers, Vocaloids, or other Synth programs from any listings.


OtherEdit

4. Fanloids (Fanmade Vocaloid) entries are discouraged. Such a thing may become too overwhelming to handle and could confuse visitors.

4.1 The exceptions are that it is prominently stated which of the VOCALOID voicebanks used
4.2 And that the Fanloid in question has a purpose to the song. Notice that Yowane Haku and Akita Neru, are officially recognized derivatives of Hatsune Miku and are know for using her voicebank to give them a voice.


Thank you for reading and happy editing!
