This is the guideline page for associated production music and original music.

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


General information

Associated production music and original music are branches 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) and original music (OM for short) are comprised of the following:

Guidelines

General guidelines

  • A. Definitions
  • 1. Associated production music - any production 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.
  • 2. Original music - any music made specifically for 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 original music.
  • B. Formatting
  • 1. Lists
  • a. All associated production music and original music are 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 five (5) times in different episodes. In that case, use the {{main|}} template on the list articles. Do not create an article for pieces that lists less than five (5) uses, even if the list is complete. Once the section on the list expands to five (5) 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 and original music
  • b. Associated production music and original music used less than five (5) times in different episodes throughout the entire series.
