This is the guideline page for associated production music.

The following guideline was officially adopted on July 9, 2015. Please do not alter this guideline without discussion.


General information

Associated production music is a branch of our "music" articles, which don't have a set of guidelines on their own. One step at a time.

Associated production music (APM for short) is comprised of the following:

  • Master lists sorted by letters (i.e. [[List of associated production music/a)
  • Individual articles for certain music

Relevant templates

Guidelines

General guidelines

  • A. Definitions
  • 1. Associated production music - any music used in the show that does not contain lyrics as used in the series. If the piece normally has lyrics, but the lyrics are not used in the series, that piece counts as associated production music.
  • B. Formatting
  • 1. Lists
  • a. All associated production music is to be placed on their respective list page in the format outlined in the guidelines below.
  • b. All music on the page is to be sorted in alphabetical order. For pieces that have multiple variations (and designated as such with letters or numbers) shall be placed in subsections of the music piece.
  • c. Under each piece of music, the usage is to be listed in episode order. Any usage outside of episodes is to be placed after the list of episodes.
  • d. Wherever possible, place the audio file on the right side of the section. This will not be used in the examples below.
  • e. "Episode name" is used loosely in the examples below. This can include shorts, films and games.
  • 2. Individual music pages
  • a. In order for a piece to have its own page, the piece must have been used in the series at least ten (10) times. In that case, use the {{main|}} template on the list articles. Do not create an article for pieces that lists less than ten (10) uses, even if the list is complete. Once the section on the list expands to ten (10) or more, a separate article can be created.
  • b. All individual music pages must use the format outlined in the guidelines below that includes an infobox.
  • D. Disallowed pages
  • 1. The following entities do not need their own article unless we discuss otherwise:
  • a. Composers of associated production music
  • b. Associated production music used less than ten (10) times throughout the entire series.

Categories

The following categories are used on associated production music articles. There is no need to add these categories to the bottom of the article as they are automatically generated with infoboxes and templates.

  • Category:Lists of associated production music - only use on the list pages. These are generated from the {{APM ToC}} template, so there is no need to add any categories to these pages. If you see any, please delete them.
  • Category:Associated production music - use these on individual associated production music pages.
  • [[:Category:Music composed by <composer>]] - only use these on individual music pages to organize them by composer.
