This is a guideline policy for song 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.

NOTICE: Machine translations of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese characters will not be accepted. For more information review Song Translating and Mistranslating by Damesukekun.

Song page naming

Every song 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→Crystalline
 • Romanian→Vise de îndrăgostit


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→Метелица (Metelitsa)
 • Chinese→今生如夢 (Gam1 Sang1 Jyu4 Mung6)


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

 • Korean→러시안 룰렛 (Russian Roulette)  not 러시안 룰렛 (Reosian Reulret)
 • Japanese→えれくとりっく・えんじぇぅ (Electric Angel)  not えれくとりっく・えんじぇぅ (Erekutorikku・Enjyeu)

Unique titling

Pages with a lowercase title, such as accel., a qualifier such as Hurt/Nishin, or impossible symbols like ://Messages will require the DISPLAYTITLE template:

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

Please place below external links.

Disambiguation titling

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

 • Memory/Apple-P and Memory/Circus-PMemory (disambiguation)
 • Human/SeriousMF and Human/Apple-PHuman (disambiguation)

Redirect titles

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 song>}}
English→I'll Miku-Miku All of You  redirects to みくみくにしてあげる♪ (Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru♪)
{{Redirect|<eng>|<Japanese song>}}
English→I'll Make you Miku Miku'ed  redirects to みくみくにしてあげる♪ (Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru♪)
{{Redirect|<rom>|<Japanese song>}}
Romanization→Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru  redirects to みくみくにしてあげる♪ (Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru♪)

Song page layout

Notifications

See the documentations: {{Notify templates/doc}} for a list of notifications commonly seen on song pages. Use when needed.

Background

Every song page should provide information about the its history. For example:

  • A {{quote}} by the author(producer), the song's original description, or a popularized interpretation(s).
  • Its series plot, instrumental and genre usage, video contents, public issues or impact, commercialization, remixes etc.
  • Remember to be objective and unbiased; don't place personal opinions within the article. The comment section is available for such opinions.
  • The {{SongWIP/Background}} template will inform readers of the section's progress.
  • If the above examples are not possible then place: No further details about this song were given.

Preceding and Succeeding versions

The {{Derivative}} template will display any previous or future works in relation to a song.

Lyrics

With some exceptions of repetitive lyrics and NSFW lyrics, every song page will have a lyric layout.

  • As stated above: Machine translations of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese characters will not be accepted.
  • Latin alphabet will use the <poem style="margin-left:1em;">...</poem> code.
  • Non-Latin alphabets or scripts that require romanization will use a table format.
  • Translations into another language will use either format depending on the circumstance.
  • Lyrics with multiple singers will use the {{Lrc color}} templates. This color-codes the content.
  • Lyrical articles that are hinting at NSFW, but not explicitly stating such, are fine. However, if lyrics straight up talk about NSFW, then the lyrics for that article will have to be omitted.

English format

  • English lyrics are relatively simple.

<poem style="margin-left:1em;">
I am left with nothing here
Empty handed in the rain
The people we once were got
Lost in the hurricane

I was the lightning
You were the sound that followed me
The storm is coming
Streets are flooding but I can’t leave</poem>

I am left with nothing here
Empty handed in the rain
The people we once were got
Lost in the hurricane

I was the lightning
You were the sound that followed me
The storm is coming
Streets are flooding but I can’t leave

Romanized format

  • VOCALOID Wiki uses a table layout to present lyrics that have romanization. The original lyrics are on the left and the romanization is on the right.

{| style="width:100%"

Derivatives

The {{Derivative}} template will display any unofficial covers, remixes, and promotional videos works in relation to a song.

 • Covers that feature synthesizer vocals should display the main producer first and the name of the synth after. Groupings welcomed.
 • Covers that feature human vocals, arrangements, remixes, and dancers should display the featured performer first. Exceptions given to choruses and borrowed arrangements by a band.

If a section grows overtime, use the {{Derivatives tabber}}.
