Pages for people are named by the person's full given name, using surname first. For the long ō sound, one o is used (example: Aida Shoko, not Aida Shouko or Shoko Aida). For members with western names, use only first and last name, with surname second (example: Eric Fukusaki).
Pages for music releases, concerts, groups, etc. are named by their Japanese titles and using ou for the long ō sound (example: Joujou Gundan). を is always romanized as wo. English words are capitalized exactly as they appear in the official Japanese title (example: LUCKY DUCKY!!, not Lucky Ducky!!). All Japanese words are capitalized except one-syllable particles (no, wo, wa, ni, de, etc.). Some exceptions to spelling of romanized words may appear from time to time (example: Tell Me Tokyo).
Double A-Side and Triple A-Side singles are written with a space in between the words and the slash (example: Tegami / Rolling Days).
Pages for concerts must be named after the official tour name, not necessarily the DVD title.

UP-FRONT GROUP Wiki is strongly anti-piracy. To prevent piracy of official goods, please keep the following guidelines:
Please keep image files to a size large enough to be seen clearly, but not so large that they may be printed and used for pirating.
There should only be up to 10 images used as photobook previews.
Audio files for song previews may be a maximum of 30 seconds long.
If an official upload of a main music video is not available, a fan upload may be used (since music videos are meant for promotion). However, please keep from using un-official uploads of additional videos for the same song (for example, dance shots).

If the source being used is a magazine, it is suggested, but not required, that you include a link to an image scan of the page being cited.
