CANCELLED Project: Help Documentation Clarification

Cancelled project, see LyricWiki_talk:Community_Portal#To_Change...or_Not_to_Change

Areas of help documentation identified that likely need clarification or updates.

In Progress:

To Do:


done For Accented Characters on fLetter, clarify 'Use of true fLetter character' vs 'un-accented true fLetter character' at Help:FS#fLetter_Parameter See Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Songs#fLetter_Parameter
done Help implies that Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Artists#Other_Songs it is allowed, but also states Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Artists#Album_List that it is not allowed. See Comments on User_blog:DesPhagues/Enhancements²
done Update the summary of the correct Album/Compilation/Other Songs sequence Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Artists#Artist_Page_Format on the Artist page? Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Artists#Album_List and Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Artists#Other_Songs. See LyricWiki_talk:Community_Portal#Help_Text_Clarification_on_What_NOT_to_add_an_album_page_for
done Use of ndashes in dates or artist names as per discussion User_talk:Koavf#Undoing_admin_edits. "Look at Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Artists#Generic_Template and the subsequent section, Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Artists#Fictional_group_.22Helper.22_example. You'll see that it uses ndashes in the places where I suggested. If LyricWiki in general wants to use hyphens rather than ndashes because of ASCII concerns...". See LyricWiki_talk:Community_Portal#Clarification_on_use_of_ndashes_etc._in_templates.2Finfo
done bring parody/parodied help up-to-date See Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Songs#Parody_and_Parodied_Songs
done When to use {{Reprise}} (and should there be a reprised {{Reprised}}) in addition to existing how to use it. Answer: It should not be used. Deletion of the template was requested, See User_blog:StarSword/Reprise_in-line_template?
done One blue song only on an album means it should be deleted ? See 6x9 comment on User_talk:EchoSierra#Instead_of_cryptic_notes:_.28RTFM.29. See LyricWiki_talk:Community_Portal#Albums_containing_only_a_single_Blue_song


  • Not considered critical
Maximum size limits on album art vs. artist image art / complying with fair use policy, including correcting the text on Special:Upload Source file box that states that an image should not exceed 10mb. If size limits are the same for album and artist then add a re-iteration of this to the source file box text when changing the 10mb text.
Resources:;;;;; See LyricWiki_talk:Community_Portal#Maximum_Image_Sizes
  • Got nowhere (see [2])
Capitalization of artist where the artist name is all CAPS. Example LANCO/KYLE/R.E.M./6LACK/ABBA Help:Contents/Editing/Formatting/Artists#Page_Title_Guidelines and LyricWiki:Page_Names#Capitalization
