Music Question[edit]

Question: what sort of file is the music section supposed to link to? An .mp3 or a video?Kleptomarnie 19:56, 3 March 2011 (CST)

An .ogg file. A video wouldn't make much sense for something that's exclusively audio, and .mp3 would cause licence troubles, although the entire thing would likely cause copyright troubles in either case. I don't have a good feeling about the legality of this :\ --Vellidragon 20:22, 3 March 2011 (CST)
Hmm. I'm wondering if we can remove the function in the Infobox that forces whatever's placed there to link to a file? If so we could just add the title of the song or add a small YouTube video of the song. Kleptomarnie 20:35, 3 March 2011 (CST)
You can, but i am not sure on the purpose.
  1. With the youtube suggestion: I appolgoze, but i am not in favor of it. This is because, The wiki's community doesn't control the youtube video(s), so if YouTube removes it, then we would need to remove it as well or search for a replacement. With the file located on the server, the community still has control it.
  2. As for the other suggestion....I've added the parameter "theme title", in which you can add a different text to show up as the title, and still link back to the file's page. Have fun with it!
Sorry if i busted your bubble. Tacopill 14:59, 4 March 2011 (CST).
Eh, what bubble? ;) Personally I'd be cool with finding a replacement video if the one on the page went dead, otherwise I agree with Vellidragon that the legality of hosting the music on our own site would be iffy, not to mention bandwidth eating. If anything, we could create a page dedicated to the theme that would feature YouTube videos of it and have the theme section of this info box lead to that page.

I'm thinking of something like this page at the Megami Tensei Wiki. Warning, it's a Wikia, so if you don't want to go there brief run-down: the Megami Tensei Wiki has pages dedicated to certain songs on the various Shin Megami Tensei soundtracks. Not all of the songs, of course--they usually highlight songs that have lyrics rather than instrumental background music. The page I linked to would be more in line with our interests, as the page is about a particular song that's been used in multiple games. The page has YouTube videos of the different versions of the songs. So, for us, there'd be a page for the Green Greens theme with videos featuring the different versions of the song. Although this would probably be browser breaking considering that song's been in, what, every game? Kleptomarnie 15:30, 4 March 2011 (CST)
I don't think we're planning on making articles on single songs any time soon. Kirby music, as far as I'm aware, consists entirely of instrumental pieces without (official) names that don't usually have any sort of relevance (the Kirby March and Kihon ha Maru excluded, but those aren't in the actual games to my knowledge). I realise quite a bunch of them reappear throughout the series, but that could be covered in the article on the subject they're most commonly associated with; i.e. the many different variations of the Green Greens theme could be mentioned in the Green Greens article, etc. I really don't think there's enough to say about Kirby songs to warrant seperate articles.--Vellidragon 16:22, 4 March 2011 (CST)
How would it of been creating a separate article? or an wanted article? It was a link to the file page. Tacopill 17:09, 6 March 2011 (CST).
It was creating a Wanted File, as Kleptomarnie attempted to name the music played in the area. On another note, if you want to add a collapsible field able to link to the Strategy Wiki guide for the place/stage/level that would be helpful. Axiomist (talk) 09:03, 7 March 2011 (CST)
I've started a simple one at Template:InfoBox StrategyWiki. What do you think should be in it? Tacopill 20:55, 12 March 2011 (CST).

Removing of Category?[edit]

May I ask, why was the category removed this edit? Tacopill 19:34, 6 November 2012 (CST)
