==Recording of an Album==

Pay careful attention to the type of article you are creating. Here are general details. For more specific information on how to structure music articles, read the next bullet.

A 'namespace' is the wiki address to an article. The namespace in http://www.musicmind.biz/wiki/Everything_here/and_after, is "Everything_here/and_after" <br><br>

For example: For the link http://www.musicbind.biz/wiki/John_Coltrane, "John_Coltrane" is the namespace. For the link, http://www.musicmind.biz/wiki/category:John_Coltrane, "category:John_Coltrane" is the namespace. <br><br>

To keep the information on this site tidy, I link certain namespaces with other namespaces. I do so through categories. I group articles into different categories to view information in different lights. <br><br>

If for example, I decide to create an article named "Epistrophy" which abstractly resembles Thelonius Monk, I can categorize that article according to Thelonius Monk by inserting the tag <nowiki>category:Thelonius Monk?</nowiki> on the Epistrophy page. Epistrophy now appears on the "Category:Thelonius Monk" page. <br><br>

This is great, but ideally, I'd have that information on the "Thelonius Monk" page itself. There is a way to link these two namespaces in a different way. The method is called 'transclusion.' Transclusion is the copying of information from one namespace to another namespace, in a way that keeps updated information in both locations. <br><br>

It requires a bit of extra effort, but I insert a bit of code to transclude "Category:Page" onto "Page." <br><br>

  • Music articles are organized differently depending upon what the article is talking about.
  • If the article is about a specific composition,
  • If the article is about a specific musician or band,

The musician may or may not be a composer for the instrument. If that's the case:

Note 1: Since every saxophonist I include is also a saxophone composer, I tag them Category:Saxophone Composers? I do not feel the need to distinguish Category:Saxophonists?, and Category:Saxophone Composers?. The additional category would not provide additional information.

However, in the case of keyboardists: every keyboardist I include is not necessarily a keyboard composer, and vice versa. There are non-keyboardists who compose keyboard music, and there are keyboardists who do not compose. There is potentially useful information by distinctly categorizing Category:Keyboardists? and Category:Keyboard Composers?.

Note 2: Rarely on this list will I categorize a musician as a composer for an instrument they do not play. A major exception is with keyboardists, whom for the sake of deciding an expertise,

Note 3:

Transclude the namespace "Category:Musician" onto "Musician." Redirect every genre to its category. Redirect every instrument to its category.

==Food and Botany==

Being a vegetarian, food and botany are very closely intertwined.

  • How Organic Information is Organized
    • Edible
    • Plants
      • Transclude the namespace "Category:Plant" onto the namesapce "Plant"
