This page has some problems with Zero Context Examples and needs a cleanup. I'm going to comment them out.

Also, this page as a whole needs work, but I'd like to start with fixing the problems on the main (Music) page.

Zero Context Examples

Word Cruft

Example Indentation

Weblinks Are Not Examples

Could someone that knows this topic better than me help out?

Geez, I know the page was a bit long in the tooth. But pretty much everything having to do with non-Crypton Vocaloids is gone! What happened?

Given the complexity of the Kagerou Project and the fact that it will be made into a manga soon, is it deserving of its own page? Considering it's a full fledged series at this point...

I think so. It's only relation to Vocaloid is the fact Miku and IA are the singers.

Should all of the WMG for songs made by mothy be moved to his page? I understand that people may not realize there is one; maybe a note saying something like "WMG concerning songs by mothy should be directed to his page" with a link.

This page needs serious revision. As Vocaloid develops the state of this page is almost... pitifully outdated and kind of spreading a lot of things that aren't even things anymore.

Mainly the fact a huge number of fandom taboos are being violated; producers not being properly credited, the creed of "no canon" only being stapled to the very bottom of the page, the header image being incredibly outdated.

Since I'm kind of peeved about this, and in succession managed to peeve a few friends about it, I'm going to begin humbly revising a lot of this page in order to make it more cohesive and relevant to its actual state.

While fanon isn't exactly bad, it's important to actually recognize that is fanon. These aren't characters, these are avatars. You can't cite tropes the same way as you would on other pages.

I mean, you're trying to find the tropes that hundreds of artists are creating every day and it's just NOT WORKING.

It's going to be a bit radical but, seriously, this is not representing Vocaloid well at all.

I wholeheartedly agree that this page needs to be stripped down & rewritten from the ground up, in order to make a better impression on Vocaloid itself as well as its fandom.

I will also taking place in editing this article. This article is way too far behind the times.

There is a thread here to try and improve this article. Any feedback would help.

Perhaps we could have two seperate pages, one for the actual Vocaloid, and another for all of the fanon. I mean, there is a lot of notable fanon so...I don't know, would that work? I'm just tossing around ideas, really.

oh, nevermind! There's already a page for that, sorry.

Is this an example?
  • Adorably Precocious Child:
    • Len is considered to be this, even though he's 14; he shows his anger at this in Gekokujou, and celebrates it in Shotacon Genocide.
    • On the other side of the Pacific, we have Oliver, a 12 year old voiced by an actual little boy.

No, it doesn't seem to fit the trope at all.

These pictures are aging quickly. May I suggest replasing them with

Hi everyone, I was reading over the page and, uh, adding bits all over the place, and I wasn't quite sure about how to keep everything consistent. So I figured I'd ask here.

When citing song titles, is the general rule to italicize if not including a link? Do we use the romanized title or the translated, or whichever is most popular? In popular series, do we include fan-made songs as canon as well? (mostly looking at the Story of Evil and its plethora of non-Mothy/Akuno-p variations, here) We have a lot of trope examples, should we start creating their own /trope/Vocaloid pages? If we're putting Vocaloid as an example elsewhere, does it go under Music or Web Original?

.. Yeeeah I think that was it. I love this fandom because it's continually growing, but at the same time all the variety is.. a bit unmanageable, sometimes. orz Kind of a noob to editing, still, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

I think making a TV Tropes list of all the songs is an impossible task due to said spontaneity of content. For example, a troper could literally make a song and publish it just to fill a trope.
10:25:14 PM Jan 16th 2012
Oh, yes, it's definitely an impractical idea. I just figured, since it's such a good resource for finding interesting songs, that it might be good to throw in at least the well-known ranking-toppers, and such.. orz there's so many of them

Mostly it's for the sake of my inner nitpicker though, haha.
