This is a guideline policy for album pages featured on the CeVIO Lyrics Wiki. While participation is encouraged it is requested that you first understand and follow these guidelines or refrain from editing.

The basicsEdit

Album page preload templatesEdit

NON-ROMANIZED SONG ARTICLES: {{Non-Romanized album article/preload}} {{English album article/preload}} {{Spanish album article/preload}}

ROMANIZED SONG ARTICLES: {{Romanized album article/preload}} {{Chinese album article/preload}} {{Japanese album article/preload}}

Album page namingEdit

Every album page will use the title uploaded by the producer, with some exceptions given.

Titles in the Latin alphabet keep their names for the page's heading. E.g.

  • English→Album Article Example
  • Romanian→Exemplu de Articol Album (single)


Titles in non-Latin alphabets or scripts have the original title followed by romanization in parentheses. The parenthesized word should not be in English. E.g.

  • Russian→Пример статьи альбома (Primer Stat'i Al'boma)
  • Chinese→专辑文例 (Zhuānjí Wénlì)


Titles in non-Latin alphabets or scripts using words foreign to their origin are to be properly written and not romanized. E.g.

  • Japanese→ハローワールド (Hello World) (album)  not ハローワールド (Harōwārudo) (album)

Unique titlingEdit

Pages with a lowercase title, such as [album with name.], a qualifier such as [Record5/John Smith], or impossible symbols like [#//Recording] will require the DISPLAYTITLE template:

  • {{DISPLAYTITLE:Lorem ''ipsum'' dolor}}

Please place below external links.

Disambiguation titlingEdit

If two albums by different producers have the same title, or similar variations thereof, then a title will require a qualifier using a slash "/". E.g.

  • Record (album)/Jane Smithson and Record (album)/John SmithAlone (disambiguation)
  • Test & Testing and test and testingTest (disambiguation)

Redirect titlesEdit

For the convenience of people using the search bar or linking to a song page from a another page, it's recommended that you create a redirect.

Redirects are kept track on the wiki by use of the {{Redirect}} template. E.g.

{{Redirect|<alt>|<Japanese album>}}
English→Example of a album article in Japanese  redirects to アルバム記事の例 (Album Kiji no Rei)
{{Redirect|<eng>|<Japanese album>}}
English→Album Article Example  redirects to アルバム記事の例 (Album Kiji no Rei)
{{Redirect|<rom>|<Japanese album>}}
Romanization→Album Kiji no Rei  redirects to アルバム記事の例 (Album Kiji no Rei)

  • Its series plot, instrumental and genre usage, video contents, public issues or impact, commercialization, remixes etc.

</gallery>

Track listingEdit

Non-RomanizedEdit

  • Non-Romanized listings such as English titles are relatively simple. Every non-romanized album page will use the {{Track listing}} template.

{{Track listing
| all_writing     = Producer. All music produced by Producer, except where noted
| total_length    = 10:00

| title1          = Song_title1
| length1         = 1:00

| title2          = Song_title2
| length2         = 2:00
}}

All tracks written by Producer. All music produced by Producer, except where noted.

No.TitleLength
1."Song_title1"1:00
2."Song_title2"2:00
Total length:10:00

RomanizedEdit

  • Vocaloid Wiki uses a |note = parameter to present titles that have romanization. The original titles are above and the romanization is on below. Every romanized album page will use the {{Track listing}} template.

{{Track listing
| all_writing     = Producer. With arrangements by Producer
| total_length    = 10:00

| title1          = Song_title (Romanized_title)1
| note1           = Translated_title1
| length1         = 1:00

| title2          = Song_title (Romanized_title)2
| note2           = Translated_title2
| length2         = 2:00
}}

All tracks written by Producer. With arrangements by Producer.

No.TitleLength
1."Song_title (Romanized_title)1" (Translated_title)1:00
2."Song_title (Romanized_title)2" (Translated_title2)2:00
Total length:10:00
