Welcome to LyricWiki.org, Beowulf6561!


LyricWiki is a free, editable database that has over 2,054,148 pages of lyrics! Included in that database can be songs from any genre, country, or language imaginable. Whatever you are into musically, there is likely something here for you. And if not...please add whatever you can!

If you need help getting started, check out the help pages. Actually, you might want to check them out anyway, particularly the Formatting Artists, Formatting Albums and Formatting Songs sections, to see which cool templates you can (and should) use.

If you need any assistance, you can ask for help on my talk page. Another good place to get help with specific editing questions is the Help Desk. The Help Desk is on the watch lists of the site administrators, so you are likely to get an answer fairly quickly. If you have a more general site-related question, you could place your question on the Community Portal, which is where much of the discussion about the site and planning goes on.

An important tip for new users: LyricWiki breaks some of the usual capitalization rules for artists, albums, and song titles. Please see LyricWiki:Page Names for more information. These special rules apply to any language that uses Roman-styled letters, whether German, French, English, Spanish, Italian, etc., etc.

Have fun!

On this page: http://lyricwiki.com/Earthlings%3F the album Johnny B Goode/Pleasure Seekers shows up with the red hyperlink indicating it doesn't exist. If I click the link and add info for it I can an unexpected SQL error about a duplicate record. If I remove the action=edit portion of the URL in the red link, I am directed to the album's page. Can this be fixed somehow?

Ok, the problem has gone away. Did someone do something to fix it? What do I do if this problem crops up in the future? Thanks.

I'm not 100% sure what is going on. A couple of times recently, there has been a delay in when a page is created and when the red links are updated. Yesterday I moved an album and it wasn't "there" when I checked on it. I tried moving it again, thinking I must have mucked something up, but kept getting an error message of epic proportions (conflict with the fact that it had already been moved, I think). Today, when I come back, it's right where it should be. On occasion, the server job queue gets bogged down and seems to cause such wacky things. From what I understand, this is usually due to a template change, which has to update on every page that it exists, or some such multi-page task going on. So, basically, an editor has finished some task, but the database is still waiting to be updated as the task waits in the server job queue. If you seem something similar again, give it a bit of time and then if things still aren't right, bring it up here again.    Kiefer    talk    contribs    admin   13:43, 21 April 2008 (EDT)

Dig

Hi,
I moved the content from Dig:Let Me Know to Dig (which used to be a redirect to some unrelated song). Dig:Let Me Know now has song and songfooter templates, but still needs the lyrics. Happy editing! -- 6x9 (Talk) 03:32, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Sweet. I noticed the dig page magically came alive and was wondering how that happened. Thanks.

Thanks. I forgot what the code was. Beowulf6561 03:53, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Instrumentals

Just quick note ...In the case of Instrumental songs, we enter Instrumental in the language param, as well as {{Instrumental}} for the lyrics. Happy Editing ∃cho⚡ierr∀ () 18:32, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Fatso Jetson

Hi Beowulf,
I know it's a while ago, but do you remember whether you got a strange warning message along the lines of "User xxx deleted this article after you started editing it" when you edited the page Fatso Jetson on Friday 13th? We're trying to figure out when this bug first appeared… — 6×9 (Talk) 19:31, October 23, 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I did get that message. Beowulf6561 (talk) 17:36, November 11, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, that means the bug started earlier than we first assumed. Either way, it's fixed now. — 6×9 (Talk) 18:46, November 11, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the update. I appreciate it.
