What can I do?

How can I help?

Lyriki is actively searching for a programmer who could code a plugin to integrate Lyriki into some of the more popular media players for Windows. An example of the feature-set we're looking for in plugins can be found by examining the Lyriki plugin for Amarok.

There is a hackish method for those determined to use Lyriki as a plugin using windows media players. It's not pretty, it's not easy, but it does work. This method will not be supported in depth.

Please create an account before contributing to Lyriki. This helps tremendously in communication, since it's very hard to know who's behind an IP address (especially considering dynamic IP addresses and proxies.) If you have an account at least we have an idea of 'you' that we can address tips and corrections to. We appreciate every contribution; however, this just makes it easier to help people learn from their mistakes if they have an account and choose to view their talk page from time to time when it's edited.

To simply add a song, check the Quickstart guide.

Contributing lyrics should be done by listening to the song repeatedly and transcribing the words the best you can. Don't worry if you make mistakes; someone else that likes the song will probably come along and offer a correction or two, and eventually the community should be able to come to a consensus as to what the proper lyrics are.

To contribute artist or album information, you should either transcribe the information from your own CDs or gather the information from various web sites, such as Wikipedia, All Music Guide, or even Amazon.com.

Before contributing, please look at our help section or our pages on adding new songs, albums and artists. These pages contain templates that should be used when entering lyrics or other information. This gives our pages a common look and feel, ensures the layout for lyrics is correct and makes sure all the information shows up properly in the indexes.
