How to Add a Band to the Wiki

  1. Choose a WikiName for the band, e.g. TheHalibuts, LaikaAndTheCosmonauts.

  2. Edit the BandDatabase page.

  3. If necessary, add a new section for the first letter of the band's name. Don't count leading articles like "The". In other words, The Halibuts should be filed under "H" not "T".
  4. Add a line under the appropriate section for your new band by adding a leading slash to your WikiName. This will create a subpage for the band under BandDatabase. Your line should look something like this:

    • /MyNewBand - My New Band (location).

  5. Save changes.
  6. Click on the new link to /MyNewBand

  7. The next page will ask you if you want to create a new page, or start from a template. You want to use our new band template, so click on BandTemplate from the list of templates in the left column.

  8. You can then begin entering the band information by changing the default template information. Please remember to enter facts only in a neutral tone. This isn't the place to hype your band.
  9. If you have any questions please ask in the SG101 forums.
