Feel like helping out?

How should I do those things?

Before contributing, you must create an account. Next, please look at the help section, specifically the pages on adding new songs, albums and artists. These pages contain templates that should be used when entering lyrics or other information. This gives pages a consistant look and feel, and ensures that all the information shows up properly in the indexes.

Contributing lyrics should be done by listening to the song and transcribing the words as best you can. Don't worry about making 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 websites, such as Wikipedia, All Music Guide, MusicBrainz or even Amazon.com.
