Album pages must not proceed to Silver or Gold until all of their songs pages have done so.

The Templates

The essential page ranking templates, {{Album Info}}, {{Watcher}} and their surrounding box (created by {{Star Box}}) are placed at the top of the Talk page of the album being ranked. The Talk page is reached by using the "Discussion" tab at the top of the Album's page. (Any discussion about the Album should still be on this page, set below this template group.)

The grouping of page ranking templates is shown below. Portions shown in GREEN should be changed, as outlined below, to correctly reflect the state of that parameter:

{{Star Box}} {{Album Info |genre = STATUS |length = STATUS |cover = STATUS |asin = STATUS |iTunes = STATUS |allmusic = STATUS |discogs = STATUS |musicbrainz = STATUS |wikipedia = STATUS |allsongs = ALLSONGS STATUS }} {{Watcher|WATCHER'S USER NAME}} |} __TOC__

Please note that the {{Watcher}} template is optional, but it is required for the Album page to be ranked Silver or Gold.

Star Types

Green

StarIconGreen

Albums at the Green level are new and in need of human attention. They likely do not have the required sections of the {{Album Info}} template completed.

Violet

StarIconViolet

Albums at the Violet level have special needs. Usually, these revolve around non-English language albums and the unique challenges they present to web pages. Very likely this has to do with accented characters or ideographic symbols being incorrect or missing. Violet pages are tagged with a {{Code Purple}} and a general topic of the problem. Specifying a sub-type to the problem greatly helps the people with the right kind of expertise find the page. Albums at the Violet level may have all necessary {{Album Info}} sections completed, but until the special problems are corrected, should not have their level changed.

Bronze

StarIconBronze

Albums at the Bronze level have been checked by a human to make sure it has the {{Album}} and {{AlbumFooter}} templates and the correctly formatted name. The song list should also be complete and song titles checked to be correct.

Silver

StarIconSilver

An album at the Silver level has someone watching it, protecting it from vandals, and all songs on the album must be ranked at least Silver. It must have a Wikipedia link (if applicable) and either an iTunes or ASIN link present (again, if applicable).

Gold

StarIconGold

Albums at the Gold level are complete! All relevant information has been filled in, it has at least one watcher, and all songs on the album are at the Gold level. Small changes and updates may take place, but a Gold level Album page should be an example of excellence.

Status

The following markers may be used to mark a section's status:

  1. unknown - this section has not been completed on the Album page
  2. done - this section has been completed on the Album page
  3. not applicable - this section has not been completed because it does not apply to the Album.
  • Example: Unless an album has seen enough success to be ranked on the Billboard charts, it likely does not have a Wikipedia entry. Such albums would have the Wikipedia section of the {{Album Info}} template marked as "not applicable".

AllSongs Status

The following markers may be used to mark the status of the |allsongs= parameter:

  1. Black - the level that should be marked if the album has songs without lyric pages ("red links")
  2. Violet - translation help is needed on songs on the album, or songs have "broken" characters (e.g. weird symbols instead of accented letters)
  3. Green - all songs on the album have been listed and exist (no "red links")
  4. Bronze - all songs on the album meet (or exceed) the criteria for being ranked Bronze
  5. Silver - all songs on the album meet (or exceed) the criteria for being ranked Silver
  6. Gold - all songs on the album meet the criteria for being ranked Gold
