Some of them might be instrumentals too... but yes, you're right, most if not all are Vocaloid. I guess Utsu doesn't do much instrumentals.

I don't get why wouldn't they be since UtsuP wrote ボカロ5thアルバム「GARAPAGOS」which translates directly to vocaloid album.

It's "I tried doing Fuwa Fuwa Time from K-ON!". It's no different from things like "I tried to sing" (を歌ってみた) and isn't important.

Title seems to translate to "K-On! I tried Fuwa Fuwa time", but I'm leaving it as is, instead of "Fuwa fuwa time".

Often it happens that a PV is deleted by the artist. Our recommendation has been to keep NicoNico PVs on VocaDB even if they're deleted on NicoNico, because often those PV links contain useful information, and they're also used for credits within NicoNico (such as saying "original song from sm393939"). Other PV types could be deleted as they don't provide as much additional value and prevent using the playlist mode.

Today I added an option to song PVs to mark them unavailable. Unavailable PVs are still shown and can be used for searching by PV, but they will not be playable on VocaDB. So, from now on just mark any deleted official PVs as unavailable. Reprints should still be removed from VocaDB if they're deleted from the streaming service.

The "original media unavailable" tag is also unnecessary for songs from now on, I will make it an advanced filter.

this got an entry report only worded as "aaaaaaa why" and the type is invalid or missing information - I'm not sure how to respond to this considering it doesn't really go into detail what's wrong with the entry.

It's good that you're asking if you're unsure.

Btw, are you the one maintaining the code of this project? It's a small request, but I wish (at least in the editor) mashup-type songs could be possible to link more than one original song.

That has been requested before. It's not a small thing because it affects the way all derivatives (covers/remixes) are linked to originals. Mashups are a very small percentage of all songs, so it's not worth it making an exception for them. Therefore the request is declined. You can link the original versions in "external links" section.

Support means a more minor role compared to other artists. Most commonly it's used for backing vocals: if there's one vocalist for main vocals and multiple vocalists singing chorus, then those other vocalists would be marked as support. Another use case is for albums with guest artists: let's say the album has 10 songs and 8 of them are made by one artists, and then there's 2 extra tracks by guest artists. Those guest artists would be marked as support. As done here. GigaP and kz were also directly involved in making two of the songs, but it's clearly Hachioji's album, so the others should be support.

If artist A remixes one of artist B's songs, then B should not be added to the credits list, unless they participated in the creation of the song directly, which is usually the case. The support role does not apply to this case, it should only be used when there is direct involvement, but the involvement is minor compared to other artists. There is one exception to this: when the original song by artist B isn't on VocaDB, then you'd add B to the credits list.

About mashup tracks, when they reuse two (or more) original songs from various artists but arranged by one person only, is it necessary to list that arranger solely and neglect all the original composers?

That is true, only the arranger of the mashup is credited (assuming the originals are on VocaDB). The original artists are already credited through linking to the original versions.

Maybe someone else already mentioned this, but what makes major and minor differences between main artists and support of the song/album?
If possible, please tell me the details. I've been reading guidelines, but still don't really get it.

E.g., if artist A remixes one of artist B's songs, do we still have to add B to the list (regarding to facts) as a lyricist? As a support?

Ah, and one more thing.
About mashup tracks, when they reuse two (or more) original songs from various artists but arranged by one person only, is it necessary to list that arranger solely and neglect all the original composers?
Although some part of the mashup were not being edited/remixed?

Chinese is the third major language on VocaDB (after Japanese and English). A partial Chinese (simplified) translation exists thanks to szg28 (big thanks for that), but it has some gaps. Vocaloid is growing in China, and the number of Chinese producers and users on VocaDB is growing, so I would like to fill those gaps.

I will provide a list of things to translate here as needed.

@Nefere Even if the vocalist is different, as long as the instrumental itself is changed it should be marked as a remix.

@Shiroizu Definitely seems to be Miku, I've updated it. Seems I was wrong about the snippet from the crossfade. Will remain on the lookout for official confirmation, or further voicebank details.

I still haven't heard the ONE version, but I'll add it if I ever find it.

Also an interesting note: the verse after the second chorus (starting at 2:48) uses lyrics from マジックアワー.

Actually as I said in the discussion thread, tagging with the language tag is recommended even if its the voicebank's native language (except Japanese, which is the default).

@mi.chan There's no need to tag it with Korean tag since UNI is a Korean voicebank.

It seems very likely that the artist are the same judging by the profile links. Activity shouldn't be an issue, since it's common for artists to be inactive for a long period of time (for example, 竜王P had a pause of over 5 years).

It's their second account. The piapro profile is linked with NND account, NND mylists and twitter in this entry and they linked back to piapro account (except mylists).

I'm more concerned about first piapro account if it's actually their... It contain works from 2009-2012 and other accounts have works uploaded in 2012 and later.

Yes, as KyuTurtle said, it's not a single producer album, it's a compilation, so just add all the producers to the album. Peach is just one of the artists (in addition to project lead). Mrs.Peach's role should be "other" in addition to composer/arranger, because of the project lead role.

@Pxndragon IMO it would be best to set as a compilation rather than an original album, and add all the people and vocalists who participated. however, I don't think illustrators aside from whoever made the album cover need to be credited.

I need a second opinion. This album is credited as so on Bandcamp:

Project Lead: Mrs.Peach
Art Lead: Iris Flower
Lead Technician: GuitarHeroPianoZero
Design Lead: Vixki
PR Lead: R3D0K4

So I've added all of the artists as artists on the album. However, there are many more featured artists, as well as vocalists (VOCALOID), so should I keep the album credits as is, or add everyone else who participated by composing a song, singing, or drawing, etc.?

@KyuTurtle : Since there's a female vocalist tag already, I think the opposite should be true, just for consistency. In other words, name the entry 'male vocalist' and use 'male singer' as an alias.

@Pxndragon would it be a good idea to keep the primary name as male singers and male vocalist as an alias?
