Please refer to this editing guide for adding new content to the Wikia. Any edits not made in accordance with this guide may be reverted.

General Notes

  • If you leave a page unfinished, please mark it with a {{WIP}} tag.
  • Correct information, correct spelling and grammar are vital.
  • Please leave a summary of your edits in the box provided. While admins can check what you edited using the diff tool, this makes things easier.
  • Information must be relevant and written by you. Please do not copy things from other places, unless it's a translation.
    • When using images from the Japanese wiki, make sure to credit them.

When a New Song Comes Out

For any new song that comes out, please add a new page to the wiki named that song's name:

  • Correct: page named "Harutopia ~Utopia of Spring~"
  • Incorrect: page named "Metallic Punisher (Song)" (this will be reflected in the page's title and look awkward)

Unfortunately, due to Wikia's naming restrictions, pages can't start with lowercase letters. This means, in cases like cyanine, the name will still appear capitalized even when it shouldn't be. However, you can get around this by using a command like this: {{DISPLAYTITLE:cyanine}}. Internally the page will still be capitalized, but when you view it, it will be correct.

Copy and paste an existing song page and overwrite all the information in it. If you don't know something like the time or number of notes, either check the Japanese wiki or leave it blank for now.

You'll also have to edit the categories at the bottom. Change the artist to the proper artist and make sure it's categorized into the proper song pack and difficulty levels.

  • The album art's filename should be the song's name. Please don't get fancy with these names; just use things like Lucifer.png or Snow White.jpg. (Wikia will automatically add underscores.) In addition, the category should be set to Album Art.
  • Please do not add song pages of songs that are not out yet or are not in the game at all.
    • In case of officially announced songs, you can add them into the song list in Songs by Date

Things to update when new songs are added

  • 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).

When a New Song Pack Comes Out

  • In addition to the above, which need to be updated on a song-by-song basis, please do the following to create a new song pack:
    • Create a new page for the song pack with the same name. If it's a collaboration, name it X Collaboration, such as Lanota Collaboration or Dynamix Collaboration.
    • Copy the contents from another song pack page to the new one and edit all the information.
    • Create a new subheading in Songs by Pack that transcludes the appropriate page (see the other subheaders for examples, just repeat that)
    • Create a new category in the Category:Song Packs category and link all individual songs in the pack to it.

When a New Event is Announced

  • Update Template:MainPageNews with a description of what Arcaea said on their Twitter account
  • Upload the image the Twitter account used, with the "Event" suffix (eg. "Metallic Punisher Event.jpg")
  • Replace the current image filename at the top of the template with the new image filename

When a New Partner is Added

  • Create a new page for the Partner
    • Copy the contents from another Partner page to the new one and edit all the information
    • On the Partners page, add the new Partner to the table (check the other columns for examples) and update the skill explanation section above it if needed
  • Images will be uploaded by User:Darkslime.

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.
      • Song Packs - This subcategory contains all song pack pages (like Dynamix Collaboration and Vicious Labyrinth). It also contains its own subcategory for each song pack which contains all the songs in that pack. Thus, on individual song pages, there should be a [[Category:<SongPackName>]] category on it.
      • Songs by Level - This subcategory contains a subcategory for every song difficulty level in the game, separated by Past/Present/Future. Thus, on individual song pages, there should be a [[Category:Level X Songs (Past|Present|Future)]] category on it.
    • Artists - A category containing individual artist subcategories. Each of these subcategories consists of all the songs that artist has contributed to. Thus, on individual song pages, there should be a [[Category:<ArtistName>]] category on it. Note that you may need two such categories if the song is a collaboration. For example, Grievous Lady is categorized both under Team Grimoire and Laur. There should not be a specific category for "Team Grimoire vs. Laur," but instead separate ones. (This applies even if both artists have only contributed to one song in the game, such as Evoltex (poppi'n mix).)
    • 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.
      • Artist Logos - All artist logos go here. (We're currently not using these.)
    • Videos - All videos are automatically categorized here when you upload them. The only videos that should be uploaded for now are gameplay videos.
    • 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.
