While we here at UP-FRONT GROUP Wiki do encourage creativity, we also like having a uniform way of doing certain things to keep consistency throughout the wiki. Please read through these guidelines before making any edits. Remember, please don't create pages that already exist on our sister wikis, the Hello! Project Wiki, NICE GIRL Project! Wiki, or AKIHABARA Backstage pass Wiki.


Page Titles

  • 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.

Page Layout

  • Pages for people may include the following main sections, typically in this order: Biography, Profile, Discography, Publications (or Photobooks), Works, Trivia, References, External Links. Additional sections such as Personal Life, Controversy, etc. may be included where applicable.
    • The Works section includes roles in film, television, music videos, radio, theater, etc.
  • Pages for groups may include the following main sections: Members, History, Discography, Awards, Total Sales Count, Trivia, References, External Links. Additional sections such as Activies outside Japan, Filmography, Gallery, etc. may be included where applicable.
  • Singles and albums pages may include the following main sections, in the following order: Tracklist, Featured Members, TV Performances, Concert Performances, Song Information, Trivia, Oricon Chart Positions, Videos, References, External Links. Some exeptions may allow for additional sections to be added.
  • On single or album pages, the music video(s) associated with that release may be featured as a thumbnail on the right. All other videos must be featured in the Videos section.
  • Pages for concerts may include the following main sections: Setlist, Featured Members, Concert Schedule, Oricon Chart Positions (for concerts released on video), Trivia, Gallery, Videos, References, External Links.


  • Proper English grammar must be used on all main articles.
  • This wiki uses American English; therefore, member colors, not member colours.
  • Do not use contractions unless they are part of a title.
  • See Page Titles section for guidelines on writing Japanese names and song titles.


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).


To ensure that we are a reliable source, we ask that you cite any information that is not common or easy-to-find knowledge by using the <ref> tag.
  • If the source you are using is a webpage, it is recommended to include the following information: link (required), language (if anything but English), website name, publication date.
  • 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.
  • If the source being used is a television or radio appearance, please include the show name, episode (if available), and air date. Sometimes providing the full quote being cited may be necessary for context.
