This is a guideline policy for album pages featured on the VOCALOID Wiki. While participation is encouraged it is requested that you first understand and follow these guidelines or refrain from editing.

The basicsEdit

Album page preload templatesEdit

NON-ROMANIZED SONG ARTICLES: {{Non-Romanized album article/preload}} {{English album article/preload}} {{Spanish album article/preload}}

ROMANIZED SONG ARTICLES: {{Romanized album article/preload}} {{Chinese album article/preload}} {{Japanese album article/preload}} {{Korean album article/preload}}

Album page namingEdit

Every album page will use the title uploaded by the producer, with some exceptions given.

Titles in the Latin alphabet keep their names for the page's heading. E.g.

 • English→The BIG ALbum
 • Romanian→Vise de îndrăgostit (single)


Titles in non-Latin alphabets or scripts have the original title followed by romanization in parentheses. The parenthesized word should not be in English. E.g.

 • Russian→Место под солнцем (Mesto Pod Solntsem)
 • Chinese→平行四界 (Píngxíng Sì Jiè)


Titles in non-Latin alphabets or scripts using words foreign to their origin are to be properly written and not romanized. E.g.

 • Japanese→ハローワールド (Hello World) (album)  not ハローワールド (Harōwārudo) (album)

Unique titlingEdit

Pages with a lowercase title, such as in the BOX, a qualifier, or impossible symbols like will require the DISPLAYTITLE template:

 • {{DISPLAYTITLE:Lorem ''ipsum'' dolor}}

Please place below external links.

Disambiguation titlingEdit

If two albums by different producers have the same title, or similar variations thereof, then a title will require a qualifier using a slash "/". E.g.

 • Alone/kimpaksa (album) and Alone/Morishita Ryou (album)Alone (disambiguation)
 • Lost & Found and lost and foundLost (disambiguation)

Redirect titlesEdit

For the convenience of people using the search bar or linking to a song page from a another page, it's recommended that you create a redirect.

Redirects are kept track on the wiki by use of the {{Redirect}} template. E.g.

{{Redirect|<alt>|<Japanese album>}}
English→The Heart of Azalea  redirects to アザレアの心臓 (Azalea no Shinzou)
{{Redirect|<eng>|<Japanese album>}}
English→Heart of Azalea  redirects to アザレアの心臓 (Azalea no Shinzou)
{{Redirect|<rom>|<Japanese album>}}
Romanization→Azalea no Shinzou  redirects to アザレアの心臓 (Azalea no Shinzou)

</gallery>

Track listingEdit

Non-RomanizedEdit

  • Non-Romanized listings such as English titles are relatively simple. Every non-romanized album page will use the {{Track listing}} template.

{{Track listing
| all_writing     = Producer. All music produced by Producer, except where noted
| total_length    = 10:00

| title1          = Song_title1
| length1         = 1:00

| title2          = Song_title2
| length2         = 2:00
}}

All tracks written by Producer. All music produced by Producer, except where noted.

No.TitleLength
1."Song_title1"1:00
2."Song_title2"2:00
Total length:10:00

RomanizedEdit

  • VOCALOID Wiki uses a |note = parameter to present titles that have romanization. The original titles are above and the romanization is on below. Every romanized album page will use the {{Track listing}} template.

{{Track listing
| all_writing     = Producer. With arrangements by Producer
| total_length    = 10:00

| title1          = Song_title (Romanized_title)1
| note1           = Translated_title1
| length1         = 1:00

| title2          = Song_title (Romanized_title)2
| note2           = Translated_title2
| length2         = 2:00
}}

All tracks written by Producer. With arrangements by Producer.

No.TitleLength
1."Song_title (Romanized_title)1" (Translated_title)1:00
2."Song_title (Romanized_title)2" (Translated_title2)2:00
Total length:10:00

Every album that has gained notoriety shall go under this section and shall use headers to separate each appearance. Headers are a must even if one appearance is present.

The most common will include Promotional, Events, Editions, Bundles, and so on.

Every album page should have a category to be sorted into.

[[Category:Albums]]
Is the default category for all album pages.

[[Category:OTHER_here]]
Other categories are the result of 'other media appearances' or miscellaneous subjects.
