Hello! I am a student at the University in Bamberg, Germany. We are doing a research-project on wikis and are now working on an internet-survey. In order to get as many opinions as possible, we would like to ask you to post a sitenotice on the frontpage of your wiki. We are going to mail you some lines and a link to our survey for that next week. This has been arranged with Wikia-Staff-Member Tim Bartel (Germany) and Angela Starling. If you have any more question, just send me an e-mail to Jessica-katharina.becker(at)stud.uni-bamberg.de! Bye Jessy

Hey just saw this page on new wikia and was wondering what exactly you want here. for instance, is this a good place to put information on individual songs or lyrics or is it just band bios? Ugluk

yes, having lyrics would be great, i would like more than band bios although band bios is what people have done the most of but i would love more

ok, first, do you mind if i set up some templates? Ugluk 17:50, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

oh, please do set up a template. they will be much apprechiated

Looking for your thoughts Edit

Ran across your wikia myself today, and I am curious. What all are you interested in? You list Rock, but you realize that is a HUGE category. Now excluding all the rap, reggae and world music, there are still some that are hard calls. I saw your list of bands, and some are classified as rock, others as emo, which is just a another type of rock sub-genre. So I am wanting to get some basic boundaries. What is your opinions on classic rock, soft rock, and metal? What about rockabilly, pop/rock, rap rock and punk? I might be interested in adding some stuff, however I would like to know is this a complete Rock Wikia, or is it just a wikia for a certain genre type? Personally I think if it is under the rock umbrella, I think it needs mention at some point or another. I don't want to step on your toes though and shatter the look and feel you are going for here. I have an interest in almost ALL rock genres, from indie rock to black metal to soft rock to screamo. So anyway... give me a little input. Thanks. --Kartagane 20:11, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

I accept any rock, it's just emos the music that i like the most but any rock is accepted. User:Jake

CopyrightEdit

hi Superjake, I've just had to go through the wiki and remove quite a bit of content. It appears it was directly taken from Napster or similar sites. In some cases you had given attribution, but that's not enough for "all rights reserved" text I'm afraid. It's important that Wikia wikis stick to the copyright policies, and only GFDL or compatable text is OK to use. Sometimes a small amount of text can be used as "fair use", maybe a quote from a song for example, but wholesale copying isn't allowed. Please look for GFDL or copyright free sources, or rewrite the text using the source for information rather than copying them. Please let me know if you have any questions or need any help.

Admin.? Edit

hey can I be an admin. on this wiki? I tried to start a classic rock wiki but they told me to be an admin. on this wiki. Ramblinwreck90 11:29, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

The message said that you should start on this wiki (that is, editing), not that you should be an admin here. Perhaps when you have spent some time here then you could be considered as an admin. But as you appear to have used sockpuppets to vote for your own request, I think it would be wise to be cautious with that -- Sannse 12:45, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
done. good luck! --Superjake2004 21:57, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Main PageEdit

Hi, I've seen that something is wrong with the main page could you fix it is a annoying , thanks -- Dragon of chaos 01:10, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

hey... Edit

I was wondering, could you make me an admin here? I've been contributing around and see some stuff that needs to be done that needs an admin flag to do it (like protecting the main page, deleting some old weird pages, special page moves, etc.) and, seeing that you're not very active here anymore, I'd like to get the wiki up and running again.
