Gislewiki doesn't come out of thin air. Here's resources, tips, tricks and everything else you'd need to make great articles here.

Todo-listEdit

  • Expand stub articles. For users not that familiar with Gisle, there are some other, more mainstream music articles here.
  • Fill out the Timeline page, including creation of month breakdown articles.
  • Create and update a sortable list at All Tracks
  • Create pages for individual tracks (lyrics, history, music videos, appearances, references...) [ref]
  • Remove direct categorization under Music, and rather to its subcategories.
  • Create logical correcting redirects to pages (e.g. Gisle -> Gisle Martens Meyer, Kosmonaut minisite -> Kosmonaut Minisite)

Track listing standardEdit

Album name (yyyy)

  1. Track name 1 [mm:ss]
  2. Track name 2 [mm:ss]
  3. Track name 3 [mm:ss]

Code:

'''[[Album name]]''' (yyyy)
# ''[[Track name 1]]'' [mm:ss]
# ''[[Track name 2]]'' [mm:ss]
# ''[[Track name 3]]'' [mm:ss]

  • Notice, that minute counter should include preceding zeroes.
  • Tracks should always have seperate articles
  • Album name and year should not be included if track listing is on a release article
  • Only five tracks should be listed on a project article, after which <br/>[[Album name|More...]] should be added to the same row as the last track.

Trick to counting total timeEdit

Here's how to add up track running times into a total length:

  1. Add up all the whole minutes and multiply the total by 60.
  2. Add to this value all the leftover seconds. Write the total down.
  3. Divide this total by 60, and round down. This is the total minutes.
  4. Multiply 60 with the total minutes and substract it from the down-written number. This is the total seconds.
  5. Combine the two numbers to display album total length!

ExampleEdit

Example tracklisting:

  1. Commander Moira (Club Ninja Edit) [04:39]
  2. Live The Future (Collapse Edit) [04:10]
  3. Katoku Pokus [05:38]
  4. The Malice Of Time (Game Uber Edit) [02:30]
  5. Darkscar (Secret bonus track) [03:45]

Step one was to add up all the minutes:
4 + 4 + 5 + 2 + 3 = 18
Then, multiply it by 60.
18 * 60 = 1080
Add all the leftover seconds:
1080 + 39 + 10 + 38 + 30 + 45 = 1242

Then, divide this number by 60 and round down.

\frac{1242}{60} = 20,7 = 20

Multiply 60 with the total minutes and substract it from the down-written number.

1242 - 60 * 20 = 42

Conclusion: total running time 20:42.
