General NotesEdit

  • The page need to fulfill the requirements
  • Do not create blank pages and take responsibility by filling them within 24 hours. Otherwise they will be deleted

  • Check out this blog if you're looking for help with Japanese translations

General Wiki MarkupEdit

  • When you see code starting with {{ and ending with }}, you see a template. Template contain specific predetermined input fields, that you have to fill with values
    • Inputfields and values are marked as such: |inputfieldname = inputfieldvalue
    • You can load templates directly into the editing area by going to the siderail (Siderail > Templates > (choose from list) > select template > press enter)
  • Sometimes you may want to link to other pages on Utaite wiki. [[Otherpagename]] will result in a link to the page called Otherpagename
  • If you need a link to a page outside Utaite wiki, use [http://www.websitelinkname.com Displaytext] to get an external link like Displaytext
  • If you ever need to put linebreaks, use <br> and a line break will appear
  • If you want to put unordered lists (with bullet points), put a * in front of the line
  • If you want to put ordered lists (with numbered lists), put a # in front of the line
  • If you ever need a redirect, use #REDIRECT [[Page title]]
    • Ex.) 96neko redirects to 96Neko and as such contains the code #REDIRECT [[96Neko]]

Sources & CitingEdit

  • Creditable sources include official websites, tweets, blog posts, Nicopedia, etc.

    • The markup is <ref>[http://www.websitelinkname.com Displaytext]</ref> where the display text could be something like Mafumafu's Tweet about his favorite food
  • If you have one source that you need to link to in different parts of the page, source them like so

      • Shops that don't ship internationally, should be marked with a JP. If not provided, the link would be falsely put into the internationally shipping section
    • When providing links of albums by non Japanese singers, it might occur, that iTunes and Amazon links don't work, because these link to the Japanese version of the websites
      • For these, proper capitalization of Amazon and itunes will work. Ex.) {{l|Amazon|www.amazon.com/dp/123456}}, {{l|iTunes|https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/id123456}}

      XXX ver. =
      {{Album
      ...
      }}
      |-|
      XXX ver.-
      {{Album
      ...
      }}
      </tabber>

GalleryEdit

  • Convert images to .png format if they are in .jpg or .jpeg format. A link to a decent converter can be found in the siderail (Siderail > Add features and media > Convert)
  • Try to keep the amount of pictures in the gallery to about 12. We do not need an image from every cover that they have done
  • To add an image, all you have to do is add the image file's name after the vertical bar symbol (|) and a caption after every second (|) with the Gallery template
    • Ex.) |imagename1.png|Singername's avatar in ...
      |imagename2.png|Singername as seen in ...

    • screenshots from PVs
    • photos uploaded by the singer themselves. Do not forget to cite the source

Song PagesEdit

  • A good example of a song page is magnet, Senbonzakura, or Hatsukoi no Ehon
  • If you are creating new song pages, add the song to the List of Songs table too!
  • Song pages have a Song template and a Song covers template
  • Simply preload the page template of Song pages from the siderail. (Siderail > Template > (choose from this list) > select --Page Template > press enter)
  • Below are explanations of the Song template fields:
    • |image = imagefilename.png
    • |songtitle =Songnameromaji<br>(Songnamejapanese)<br>(Translation)
    • |nnd = and |yt =
      • These fields should link to the original song (usually the VOCALOID version). The nnd ID often begins with sm or nm. The yt ID is the part after watch?v= in the link
    • |producer = Music, Guitar & Movie - Producername<br>Illustration - Illustratorname
      • This field should be filled with the persons involved in the original song, and their roles
  • Below are explanations of the Song covers template fields:
    • |ytX = and |nndX =
      • These fields should link to the cover on YT and NND. The nnd ID often begins with sm or nm. The yt id is the part after watch?v= in the link
    • Some covers are not on YT or NND. In this case we have some other alternative fields
      • |bbX =
        • For bilibili songs. The ID is the part after /video/ in the link
      • |koeX =
        • For Koebu songs. The ID is the part after /koe/ in the link
      • |tmX =
        • For TmBox songs. The ID is the part after /pl/ in the link
      • |scX =
        • For SoundCloud songs. The ID is the part after /tracks/ in the embed link, not the normal link
      • |boxX =
        • For box songs. The ID is the part after /s/ in the link
      • |cdX = Pagename#Albumname
        • For album only songs, that are featured on the wiki. Pagename is the page the album is featured on, Albumname is the name of the album as written on the page
        • Ex.) |cd5 = Asamack#Tobidase! Asamack Radio
      • |urlX = http://www.websitelinkname.com Websitename
        • For websites on which not frequently covers are posted, or for websites of albums, that aren't featured on the wiki yet. Ex.) |url4 = http://www.voiceblog.jp/devilneko/1644160.html Voiceblog
      • |titleX = Altalbumname
        • If the albumname for cdX differs from the one that should be displayed, or if urlX links to an album, the album name shall be put in here
    • |singerX = [[Singername]]<br>(YT singer)<br>-XX ver.-<br>(Note)
      • If the singer is a YT singer, note it by writing (YT singer) after the Singername
      • Use hyphens (-) to note particular arranges or versions. Capitalize version titles. Ex.) -Band edition-, -Piano ver.-, -English ver.-, -Screamo Rearrange-
      • If the song is a parody lable it with -parody-
      • If the song features vocals of several singers use [[Singer1]] x [[Singer2]] to denote that
        • If you want to list both the collabgroup and the singers, use [[Groupname]]<br><small>[[Name1]] x [[Name2]]</small>
      • Notes include
        • (deleted) used to identify deleted covers; reprints may be provided
        • (commu) community only covers; they may be linked to as only people in the utaite’s community may view them anyway; no YT reprints may be used here!
        • (private) a cover that the user has made unavailable to public; no YT reprints may be used here!
        • (muted) refer to covers whose track got muted by YT

NicollaboEdit

  • If the song has a Nico Nicollabo tag on NND, use the Nicollabo template instead
  • A good example of a Nicollabo page is Smiling
  • To created the page, load the page template from the siderail (Siderail > Templates > (choose from this list) > select --Nicollabo > press enter)
  • Below I'll explain the different parts of the template:
    • |image =
      • Usually covers of Nicollabo songs also contain custom artwork for the PV
      • Choose a high resolution picture of the whole group if available, if not try getting a screenshot from the PV in high resolution
    • |songtitle =
      • Usually covers of Nicollabo songs have distinct version names. Ex.) ✽ Xmas edition ✽
      • For the original version use Original ver.
    • |yt = and |yt =
      • The nnd ID often begins with sm or nm. The yt ID is the part after watch?v= in the link
    • |producer = Music, Guitar & Movie - Producername<br>Illustration - Illustratorname
      • This field should be filled with the persons involved in the song, and their roles, as Nicollabo covers usually feature original instrumentals, visuals, etc. as well

  • Choose a video of decent quality
  • Do not link to a video that is English subbed
    • We are not promoting the translations as we are not a translating site and because they may be incorrect
