Welcome to lyrics.wikia.com, Lukehatton!
(Thanks to Sean)
LyricWiki is a free, editable lyrics database that has over 2,054,160 pages of lyrics, albums and artists. 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.
A good place to start is by checking out our FAQ and Help pages. The Formatting Artists, Formatting Albums and Formatting Songs are particularly useful sections. Another way to familiarise yourself with the way we do things here at LyricWiki is to look at some of the Artist, Album and Song pages with a Gold star in the top right corner.
If you need further assistance, you can leave a note on the LyricWiki Help Desk. The Help Desk is on the watchlists of the site administrators, so you are likely to get an answer fairly quickly. LyricWiki also has its own chat room, so you might also be able to obtain answers to some of your questions by asking the helpful LyricWikians that frequent there.
If you wish to make comments or suggestions about the site, or if you have any site-related questions, the best place to post these is at the Community Portal. The Community Portal is where most of the discussions about the site and planning goes on.
Important: LyricWiki breaks some of the usual capitalization rules for artists, albums, and song titles. Since this applies to all languages using the Latin alphabet, please be sure to familiarise yourself with our policy by reading LyricWiki:Page Names.

With regards to any artist, please do not include tracklists for live & compilation albums unless they contain tracks that are not included in studio albums. cheers10:49, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
- My apologies, Echo is being a little over-zealous here, as this is not actually the case. For major artists that have multiple small press compilations and live albums, etc., these should not be given track listings on the Artist page, but instead be bullet-listed (using *) under a header for "Live Albums" and "Compilations" or even "Compilations and Live Albums." If the artist themselves (their label, I suppose, really) put out the album as an official release, then it can certainly be added into the chronological listing of their albums. The Great White edits look fine to me, although we use (Live) as opposed to [Live] (due to the single square brackets normally being used for an off-wiki link), and don't include "EP" in the link/title to albums, unless they are officially part of the title, which only The Blue EP appears to do. Also, as an informational note for you, if you want to, the part after the pipe "|" can be formatted any way that you like. So
# '''[[Great White:Call It Rock 'N' Roll|Call It Rock 'N' Roll]]'''could be formatted
# '''[[Great White:Call It Rock 'N' Roll|Call It Rock 'n' Roll]]'''so that it matches the capitalization that the Artist uses. 17:40, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
- As for this - if you read the Wikipedia page for this album, you will note that it states that "Embryo" is "An instrumental piece ... lasting approximately 2 minutes, ... found between tracks 8 and 9". As such, his edit is a perfectly effective way of marking this while keeping the track listing numbered correctly. Your references are limited in this regard, as they do not deal with instances such as these. 17:40, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Instrumental Songs, Language
[], "language = Instrumental" is the correct format, in addition to the Instrumental template for lyrics. cheers 11:33, 21 March 2009 (UTC) P.S. and please indicate the language for non instrumentals as well.
Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for all the edits that you've been doing since the Big Move. (A lot of them pop up on my watch list!) The ones that I've looked at look really nice!17:52, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
- thanks for the note of support Senvaikis. There's a lot more work I'm intending to do. Just got to find the time!--Lukehatton 14:29, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
- Just saw the list of Related Artists in The Elves and the aother artists refrenced from there.
- When entering related artists (on any page) can you provide a reference as to how they are related, for example by way of which band member, or what artistic collaboration or change of crew, what year or album.
- A plain list of artists is too vague to be of any use to anyone but the die hard fan of the band. Wikipedia page of the artist usually lists related acts. tia --ES (talk) 11:48, April 1, 2013 (UTC)
