You inserted a rather lengthy list of related artists at The Pastels, most of which seems to be unrelated! :)

Howzit man, sorry to bug you

Judging by your amount of edits I know you know what you're doing here; was wondering if you could help me with a little problem I have on the P.H. Fat page.

The guys have released a brand new song about a week ago, featuring another artist, and I don't know how to add a single release to the page, or rather, how to correctly format and add a single, I've been looking at the formatting of other artists with singles but somehow I can't get it

The song is called 'Lights Out Feat. Jungfreud', and here's a link if you're interested: https://soundcloud.com/phfat/lights-out-ft-jungfreud

Any help is appreciated man thank you -BradleyAlan

Thank you man that was cool of you, I see the mods have removed your latest update already though :/ Will transverse the lyrics tonight and try again another time I suppose

shweeeet

Compilations

Hi. Thanks for your contributions, and a hint so that those contributions are anchored solid... If you peek here [1] where Merle's compilations are listed, we don't want any of those! We are not trying to be a discography site, it's lyrics.wikia ;) Same restriction applies to Live albums and EPs and DVDs etc., by any artist. hth ES (talk) 04:48, December 6, 2014 (UTC)

Now I am confused, are you saying don't list compilations, live albums, etc.? The reason for my confusion is the song type [2] allows for multiple types. Also are there cases when live albums are appropriate? For example, I am almost finished transcribing all the songs from The Beau Brummels:Live! (2000) and plan to start uploading them next week, and I don't want my work to be for naught. Read'em And Weep (talk) 05:10, December 6, 2014 (UTC)
There are cases where using compilations is simply the only choice available to us, because the artist never had anything besides singles; Bessie Smith, Jimmie Rodgers, Memphis Minnie, etc....and we won't be trying to list all their individual singles, that's what musicbrainz and discogs do!
For contemporary artists that have studio albums and compilations by the artist (Greatest Hits), and Live releases, DVD's etc., only studio albums are accepted, If any non studio album is merely a duplicate listing of tracks already represented on studio albums, it is guaranteed to get deleted, I assure you.
If you are going to create multiple versions of the same song page like Nine Pound Hammer, they need to be substantially different. Transposed verses, different spoken words as intro, etc. don't count.
We are not a fan site, All the minute details about variations in recordings and releases that gets represented on a fan sites don't belong here.
You can go thru your own non studio release creations and put a delete requests on them (else conjure up a solid justification for it's right to live on site), it would be most appreciated.
Hope that helps, and let us know if you need help with anything around here! cheers ES (talk) 06:43, December 6, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying and for your quick response. The help index on albums and songs does not make what Lyrics Wikia want very clear and that what I was using. I would recommend you add your clarification (above) to the help index.Read'em And Weep (talk) 05:43, December 7, 2014 (UTC)
The info on which album pages to create is, somewhat counterintuitively, on Artists help; I've updated it and added it near the top of Albums help as well. That separate song pages should only be created when the lyrics differ significantly is strongly implied on LW:PN. — 6×9 (Talk) 14:13, December 7, 2014 (UTC)
I just checked out the links you gave and those guidelines should indeed help clear up any confusion on what songs/albums to add to Lyric Wikia. Again thank you for adding the extra detail to those pages. Read'em And Weep (talk) 04:32, December 8, 2014 (UTC)
