We're approaching that holiday season but there's no break here. With recent progress, I'm greenlighting the RL Project. Put simply, it's what many of you've been waiting for: an organized effort to give artists articles. But not just artists! Companies, fellow Vocaloid Producers, this project aims to have us begin covering.
I want this to be a very user driven project so there isn't a specific list or criteria for getting these articles posted, beyond them not being stubs. If there's an artist or Vocaloid Producer involved in Evillious works that you want to get an article, then start working on it in your sandbox! Once you're finished, contact me and we'll move onto getting it posted.
This requires a lot of research on our community's end. Not everyone is familiar with every artist or their work so I ask that all users participating find references and copy/paste them to your individual sandbox (preferably under the "References" section) so it can be readily fact-checked.
The general format for these articles will be as follows:
A basic history section should be included. The minimum should be professional releases pertaining to Evillious, though other major works or personal biographies may be included.
These sections will vary depending on the individual/company. But they should all their works. The minimum should be official Evillious material, though other major works may be included. Depending on the article, more than one section may be included. Format these sections as lists, using scroll boxes and tables as needed.
Our standard for these sections used in other articles. Images of brands and Evillious social media avatars may be included. Links to official websites, social media, and more should be included for External Links.
To help keep us organized and updated on all these new articles, lists similar to our Evillious Cast List and Evillious Term List will be set up. Due to this, a new "Lists" category will be created to help compile all these miscellaneous articles and make it easier on our editing community to reference any of them. Should we have multiple articles for a given type, categories will also be created for Artists/Producers/Companies for a similar purpose.
But what about those that don't have enough information or interest to receive articles? References to them will be linked to the afformentioned list article (assuming they don't have a wikipedia article elsewhere). If users feel there's a lot that individual has done and should be recognized for, then start working on an article for the person!
On a separate note, these article formats can be improved upon and I would like users to discuss ideas here. To throw a few questions at our community:
1) Would you like to see these articles also include their own infoboxes? If so, what would be the criteria/information included?
2) Would you like Producer/Artist articles to include an Inspiration and Style section, if applicable, like Akuno-P? Are there other sections you'd like to see included?
