This is a guideline policy for song 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.

NOTICE: Machine translations are not accepted on this wiki. For more information review the Translation Guidelines.

The Basics[]

Song Page Preload Templates[]

NON-ROMANIZED SONG ARTICLES: {{Non-Romanized song article/preload}} {{Non-Romanized song article (maximized)/preload}} {{English song article/preload}} {{English song article (maximized)/preload}} {{Spanish song article/preload}} {{Spanish song article (maximized)/preload}}

ROMANIZED SONG ARTICLES: {{Romanized song article/preload}} {{Romanized song article (maximized)/preload}} {{Cantonese song article/preload}} {{Chinese song article/preload}} {{Chinese song article (maximized)/preload}} {{Japanese song article/preload}} {{Japanese song article (maximized)/preload}}

Song Page Naming[]

Every song 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→Song Article Example
  • Romanian→Exemplu de Articol Cântec


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

  • Russian→Песня Статья Пример (Pesnya Stat'ya Primer)
  • Chinese→曲子文例 (Qǔzi Wénlì)


Titles in non-Latin alphabets or scripts using words foreign to their origin are to be written as they are spelled in the borrowed language and not romanized. E.g.

  • Korean→러시안 룰렛 (Russian Roulette)  not 러시안 룰렛 (Reosian Reulret)
  • Japanese→えれくとりっく・えんじぇぅ (Electric Angel)  not えれくとりっく・えんじぇぅ (Erekutorikku・Enjyeu)

Unique Titling[]

Pages with a lowercase title, such as [song.], a qualifier such as [Song/John Smith], or impossible symbols like [://Song] will require the DISPLAYTITLE template:

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

Please place below external links.

Disambiguation Titling[]

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

  • Song/Jane Smithson and Song/John SmithSong (disambiguation)
  • Generic Title/John Smith and Generic Title/Jane SmithsonGeneric (disambiguation)

Redirect Titles[]

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|<eng>|<Japanese song>}}
English→Song Article Example  redirects to 歌記事例 (Uta Kiji Rei)
{{Redirect|<rom>|<Japanese song>}}
Romanization→Uta Kiji Rei  redirects to 歌記事例 (Uta Kiji Rei)

The {{Song box 2}} parameters must be in this order, do not rearrange or collapse this structure.

Song Page Layout[]

Notifications[]

See the documentations: {{Notify templates/doc}} for a list of notifications commonly seen on song pages. Use when needed.

Background[]

Whenever extra information about a song is available, it should be added to the song page. Examples of extra information include:

  • A {{quote}} by the author(producer), the song's original description, or a popularized interpretation(s).
  • The song's plot, any unique instruments used, genre, video contents, public issues or impact, commercialization, remixes etc.
  • Remember to be objective and unbiased; don't place personal opinions within the article. The comment section is available for such opinions.

Preceding and Succeeding Versions[]

The {{Derivative}} template will display any previous or future works in relation to a song.

Lyrics[]

With some exceptions of repetitive lyrics, every song page will have a lyric layout.

  • As stated above: Machine are not accepted.
  • The Latin alphabet will use the <poem style="margin-left:1em;">...</poem> code.
  • Non-Latin alphabets or scripts that require romanization will use a table format.
  • English translations are to be placed in a third column on the far right.
  • Lyrics with multiple singers will use the {{Lrc color}} templates. This color-codes the content.

English Format[]

  • English lyrics are relatively simple.

<poem style="margin-left:1em;">
I am left with nothing here
Empty handed in the rain
The people we once were got
Lost in the hurricane

I was the lightning
You were the sound that followed me
The storm is coming
Streets are flooding but I can’t leave</poem>

I am left with nothing here
Empty handed in the rain
The people we once were got
Lost in the hurricane

I was the lightning
You were the sound that followed me
The storm is coming
Streets are flooding but I can’t leave

Romanized Format[]

  • CeVIO Lyrics Wiki uses a table layout to present lyrics that have romanization. The original lyrics are on the left and the romanization is on the right.

{| style="width:100%"
! align=left |''Japanese''
! align=left |''Romaji''
|-
|空にカガヤく星のカケラ
|sora ni kagayaku hoshi no kakera

永久(とわ)の約束 願いをこめて towa no yakusoku negai o komete
受け止めてほしい あなたへの気持ちを uketomete hoshii anata e no kimochi o

Spaces Between Verses[]

  • Spaces between verses are created by placing an HTML <br /> tag in a table row.

受け止めてほしい あなたへの気持ちを uketomete hoshii anata e no kimochi o

Songs With Translations[]

  • Songs with English translations go in a third column to the right of the Romaji column. To make a third column, go into the visual editor, click on a cell in the second column, click on the small downward-pointing arrow that appears above the first row of that column, and then click "Insert After."

Any song page without an English translation should include the category [[Category:Songs in need of English translation]]. Once a translation is added, this category may be removed from the page.

Translators are kept track on the wiki by use of the {{Translator}} template. E.g.

{| style="width:100%"
! align=left |''Japanese''
! align=left |''Romaji''
! align=left |''English''
|-
|科学の限界を超えて
|kagaku no genkai o koete

|-
|私は来たんだよ
|watashi wa kitan da yo
|From beyond the bounds of science

Japanese Romaji English
科学の限界を超えて kagaku no genkai o koete I've come here
私は来たんだよ watashi wa kitan da yo From beyond the bounds of science
English translation by Project DIVA F 2nd

Derivatives[]

The {{Derivative}} template will display any unofficial covers, remixes, and promotional videos works in relation to a song.

 • Covers that feature synthesizer vocals should display the main producer first and the name of the synth after. Groupings welcomed.
 • Covers that feature human vocals, arrangements, remixes, and dancers should display the featured performer first. Exceptions given to choruses and borrowed arrangements by a band.

If a section grows overtime, use the {{Derivatives tabber}}.
