What's New at Lyriki?

  • (01 Jan 2008) Following the recent update of many site's templates, Wiki-Lyrics 0.12.6 has been released. Everyone using the script is encouraged to update as soon as possible.
  • (25 Dec 2007) Many templates are receiving major, much-needed revisions... please excuse the broken pages.
  • (30 Oct 2007) Due to the constant anonymous vandalism, anonymous editing has been disabled indefinitely.
  • Lyriki is actively searching for a programmer who could code a plugin to integrate Lyriki into some of the more popular media players for Windows. An example of the feature-set we're looking for in plugins can be found by examining the Wiki-Lyrics script.
    There is a hackish method for those determined to use the script under Windows media players. It's not pretty nor easy, but it does work.
  • Not new, but, definitely in need of exposure. #Lyriki on irc.freenode.net could definitely use some more company.

New here?

Feel like helping out?

How do You do those things?

Please create an account before contributing to Lyriki. Though not a requirement, it helps tremendously in communication, since it's very hard to know who's behind an IP address (especially considering dynamic IP addresses and proxies). If you have an account at least we have an idea of 'you' that we can address tips and corrections to. We appreciate every contribution however; this just makes it easier to help people learn from their mistakes if they have an account and choose to view their talk page from time to time when it's edited.

Contributing lyrics should be done by listening to the song and transcribing the words as best you can. Don't worry if you make mistakes; someone else will offer corrections, and eventually the community should be able to come to a consensus as to what the proper lyrics are.

To contribute artist or album information, you should either transcribe the information from your own CDs or gather the information from various web sites, such as Wikipedia, All Music Guide, MusicBrainz or even Amazon.com.

Before contributing, please look at our help section or our pages on adding new songs, albums and artists. These pages contain templates that should be used when entering lyrics or other information. This gives our pages a common look and feel, ensures the layout for lyrics is correct and makes sure all the information shows up properly in the indexes.
