I've been cleaning up the tags and I've been reorganizing them to make them more useful.
I wanted to address some issues and clarify some categories. I'm unsure what is useful or not, so I would appreciate some suggestions.

General issues:
- I deleted many tags that were copied from VocaDB that I think are unappropriate for UtaiteDB (such as "cover", "Non-English Lyrics", since a majority of songs fall under this category). I changed the "Japanese" tag into "Japanese cover" for use on non-Japanese songs covered in Japanese. I also deleted many Vocaloid voicebank related tags. If you want to include more information on the Vocaloid or UTAU, please put it in the description.
- Tags can use spaces, there is no need to use underscores for word separation.
- Try to avoid redundant tags. Merge or report any redundant tags. This is especially a problem for compound words with variations in spaces, dashes, underscores.

Here is a brief description of how I currently organize the tags. Please let me know if there's any categories you would like to add or categories you think should be redefined, renamed, etc.

Categories:
- Genres: Genres a song belongs to. Music genres are a lower priority on UtaiteDB compared to VocaDB, but if you would like to add genre tags, please be careful about redundant tags. Most of the redundant tags I removed were from this category
- Arrangement type: For rearrangements, what type of arrangement.
- Artist status: Gives more information on the artist's current activity.
- Animation: PV animation style. Might remove this category.
- Copyrights: Franchises such as anime, games, TV shows, movies that the song originates from. For videos removed due to copyright claims, go to the Song Status category.
- Editor notes: Mostly tags that indicate missing information or explain missing information. This sections is to help editors locate incomplete or messy entries. It is also good to identify entries where the classifications are unknown (like remix vs. cover. vs. original).
- Event: Related to concerts, competitions, themed events (e.g. nostalgic Vocaloid songs collab), etc. Youtube chorus battles have their own section.
- Jobs: Tags that explain the positions/roles of people under Other Artists and people who belong to multiple artist types/roles (e.g. an utaite who also illustrates for PVs will have an "illustrator" tag). I'm considering changing the name of this category.
- Languages: Languages utaite sing in and language a song is in (excluding Japanese).
- Lyrics: Types of lyrics available for a song.
- Release types: Provides extra information on the release type and what the release comes with.
- Series: G**roups songs/albums that belong to a song or album series.
- **Site types
: Indicates sites artists frequently upload to.
- Song status: Availability of the song and other aspects of the song.
- Sources: Where the song is from, more song type information.
- Staff use: These are for the mods and admins to double check certain entries for deletion or quality checking.
- Themes: content information for songs. I deleted a lot of general tags like "love" and "depression", but if people want them back, I'll put them back in. I kept tags like "Christmas" and content warning type tags.
- View count milestones: If the video has reached a certain number of views.
- Vocalists: Tags describing the vocalist. Majority of tags should relate to utaite, such as type of utaite or voice types. Specific tags for voicebanks aren't welcome (e.g. female Vocaloid).
- YouTube battles: Youtube chorus battles go here
- Unsorted: Categories to be determined. Not sure where to put "serifu".

Once again, please give suggestions if you can!

I thought it would be handy to have a list of reprint-forbidding artists as well as sources. Let me know if I missed anything!

Also, if any new and/or better sources to use, please let me know about those too.

According to Utaite Wiki, the 9th track differs depending on which publisher (Tower Records / Animate) but I need a source to confirm this.

I think it's because there's a few songs with utaite here. It's not wrong to have the album on both sites, if the album has both Vocaloid and utaite.

Why is this under Utaite? This is clearly a Vocaloid and Debutante 2-7 are under Vocadb

Sorry, I didn't notice this before. From the logs I can see you were trying to add a barcode to the album. There was a UtaiteDB-specific problem with the album barcodes list causing that error. That's fixed now.

Just a notice that these links should be added on to the main entry. I will edit them in. Additionally, entries have to be made for all versions of the single.

Please refrain from adding entries unless you can add the bare minimum.

The arrangement sounds the same as the album, but the singing sounds different to me. Someone else needs to double check too...

Unsure if:
* It's a cover or another arrange. Maybe a cover..
* The same version that appears on "二律背反". If it is, it should be merged.

I forget the exact reason, but it's mainly because there is clear distinction between minato's producer and singing career for them to be separate entries.

Why are トゥライ and minato separated? It just makes it more confusing in the end.

All song entries must include lyricist/composer/arranger information, even if it is non-VOCALOID.

Re: entry report,

The album version has an additional 30 second intro, so that's why it has it's own separate entry. Plus, it's pretty obvious that the song has been re-recorded and re-mixed when compared to the NND version.

This was the only thing I could find. From what I can understand it seems like this is an original song by NO LEAF CLOVER (KEI's band; song composed by KEI) but so far has only been performed at lives.

Alright, in the future I'll limit the non-Niconico original songs to just the ones that are covered more than once. Sorry about that, I went a bit overboard...

gravatar

stephieku

I don't think it's necessary to add original song entries of non-Niconico related songs. I think some like Let it Go are good because heavily covered (like Let it Go), but I feel like these a bit unnecessary and clutter up the database, but there's nothing wrong with them either... I usually put the original song in the cover entry's description.

"Arrange" in this instance refers to additional vocal harmonies.

I will change this entry's song type (and that other one) back to "cover".

For simultaneous releases, we either mark both as originals, or we make the utaite version the Cover version. I think it's fine to leave them be.
