FANDOM


Please refer to this editing guide for adding new content to Arcaea Fandom. Any edit not made in accordance with this guide is subject to reversion at the discretion of the moderators/administrators.

General Notes

  • If you leave a page unfinished, mark it with a {{WIP}} tag.
  • Correct information, correct spelling and grammar are required. Concise language is encouraged.
  • Information must be relevant and verified.
    • If using images from an external wiki, make sure to credit accordingly.

New Announcement or Update

New content will always be announced on the official Twitter. Please edit Template:MainPageNews with announced or released information. Do help us clean up obsolete news as well.

  • When a version update comes out, please also update the Version History page.

New Song

Create a page with the same name as the song. Examples:

  • Correct: Harutopia ~Utopia of Spring~
  • Incorrect: Metallic Punisher (Song)

Pages cannot start with lowercase letters due to Fandom settings. In case of a lowercase title like cyanine:

  • Add "{{DISPLAYTITLE:cyanine}}" as the first line in the page source (without quotes).
  • Add "| Title = cyanine" to the song template in the page source (without quotes).

For the song's cover art:

  • The image filename should be the song's name, e.g. Lucifer.png or Snow White.jpg (Fandom automatically adds underscores).

Copy the Song template of an existing page to the new one.

  • All categories are automatically generated by the template. You don't need to add categories to the page manually.
  • For song artists:
    • Single artist, English name
      • | Artist = (English name)
    • Single artist, Japanese name (e.g. Clotho and the stargazer)
      • | Artist = (Japanese name)
      • | Artist Link = (Romanised name)
      • | ArtistCat1 = (Romanised name)
    • Multiple artists (e.g. next to you)
      • Follow above convention for individual artists.
      • Use Compound Artist Link parameter to link each artists.
      • Use ArtistCat2, ArtistCat3, etc. for second, third, etc. artists.
  • For "Illustrator", if they're not listed in-game but the artist is known, use a reference (e.g. Sayonara Hatsukoi).
  • Add "__NOTOC__" on the top of the page (without quotes) to hide the table of contents.

Page section order:

  • Official Sound - Use a SoundCloud embedded link if available (e.g. Sayonara Hatsukoi) or a YouTube official video if not (e.g. Kanagawa Cyber Culvert)
  • Strategy (with subsections for difficulties)
  • Videos (with subsections for difficulties if other videos are present)
  • Lyrics
  • Song Data
  • Trivia
  • References

Unreleased song pages:

  • Please add "{{Pending|Summary=(Song name) data}}" to the top of the page (without quotes).

Other Relevant Pages

  • Song list pages
    • Songs by Artist - add the song to its relevant artist subheading (and create a new subheading if the artist hasn't contributed to Arcaea before). Do this for each artist who worked on the song; if it's a collaboration, note it in the Notes column.
    • Songs by Level - add all three difficulties of the song to the appropriate difficulty subheading tables and update the counts in the subheader
    • Songs by Date - add a new row to the bottom of the list
    • The page for the song's pack - if it's not in a new pack, it'll be in Arcaea or Memory Archive, so update the appropriate one with information. The info will be transcluded on the Songs by Pack page automatically, so you don't need to worry about editing that page.
  • Add the category for the artist if the artist is new. This should be easy if you included the category on the song page; simply click on it, click "Create Page," and copy this into the contents:
This category includes all songs by <ARTIST_NAME>.

[[Category:Artists]]

If the song is a collaboration work, each artist should get their own category. For example, Arch and n3pu both have their own categories, even though they both only worked on Evoltex (poppi'n mix). (See above for how to do this in the Song template.)

New Song Pack

  • Create a page with the same name as the song pack. If it's a collaboration with X, name it X Collaboration (e.g. HARDCORE TANO*C Collaboration).
  • Copy the contents from another song pack page to the new one and edit all the information.
  • Add a section in Songs by Pack for the new pack (see the existing sections for examples).

New Partner

  • Create a page with the same name as the partner.
    • Copy the contents from another Partner page to the new one and edit all the information
    • Add the partner to Partners.

Category Structure

This is the category structure for the wiki. If you're not sure how to categorize something, please reference this.

  • Browse - The top-level category, mainly consisting of other categories and the front page.
    • Songs - A category containing both lists of songs and individual song pages. Any list pages should be categorized as - (meaning, [[Category:Songs|-]]). This way, they'll all appear before the rest of the songs on the category page.
    • Artists - A category containing individual artist subcategories. Each of these subcategories consists of all the songs that artist has contributed to. Please see above (the Song editing guide) for how to include these in templates.
    • Partners - A category containing individual partner pages.
    • Game Mechanics - This category holds all pages that relate to game mechanics. Basically, any page that isn't a song list or an individual song should probably go here.
    • Game Information - Currently, this category only contains the Update History page. We may want to move it at some point.
    • Meta - This category holds all wiki-related articles. Currently it contains this page and the to-do list.
    • Work in Progress - This category holds any articles marked with {{WIP}}.
    • Images - All images are categorized here.
      • Album Art - All album art images that go on individual song pages.
      • Event Images - Any event-related images, such as those that go up on the official Twitter, go here.
      • Example Images - Any images of the game that are used for example/explanatory purposes are categorized here.
      • Game Graphics - Any icons directly pulled from the game go here.
      • Partner Images - This category is for Partner images for use on the Partners page.
    • Videos - All videos are automatically categorized here when you upload them. The only videos that should be uploaded right now are official sound videos if a SoundCloud version doesn't exist (like Kanagawa Cyber Culvert and Flyburg and Endroll).
    • Templates - All templates should be categorized here. If you don't know what a template is, don't worry about it.
    • Disambiguations - Any pages that disambiguate are categorized here. As of this writing, it's empty.
    • Help - Currently empty. This might be where the Meta articles are supposed to go.
    • Candidates for deletion - Holds all candidates for deletion (articles marked with {{Delete}}) until deleted by an administrator.
