To Do

(At least the ones I can think of off the top of my head...)

  • Finalize the song template (and the navigation template from lyrics / tabs pages)
This looks good. Not immutable, but I like how it looks. --Bry 23:17, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
    • What other pages should be attached to each song (just duplicate the ones from the song details pages? User-submitted content like videos, etc., would be good; the They Might Be Giants wiki has an "Interpretations" page for every song, but JoCo lyrics don't tend to be obscure in the same way, so maybe that's not as necessary. A "Downloads" page?)
  • Add templates for album, shows, possibly lyrics and tabs
Still like a real show template, perhaps with set list and everything. --Bry 23:17, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
  • I'd like a compendium of interviews he's done
I'd still like this
I have put some interviews in as a category - someone just needs to put a link somewhere to access it -mason
  • "Rarities" and other things not linked on the Songs page (e.g. "One More Score," "You Oughta Know")
These have been added, at least the ones I can think of.
  • Add all manner of content (as suggested above, figuring out how to standardize the pages should probably come first).

Other ideas [submitted by jinx]:

  • A chronology? List of events, album/song dates, concerts, and so on, so that if people think "I went to such-and-such a concert, when was that?" there's a quick place to go to find out.
  • Some set of links to items that are related as inspirations to the songs, like wikipedia pages on George Plimpton and Benoit Mandelbrot and so on.
This is now in progress: List of people mentioned in songs --Bry 23:17, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
  • For Aftermath,links to the recording sessions with notes on what parts are laid down in each session.
  • List of non-JoCo songs covered in various concerts? (Or are there copyright issues involved?)
This seems to be in progress at the bottom of the Discography -- I am not a lawyer, but I think copyright shouldn't be an issue... --Bry 23:17, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Bry again:

  • Page on Creative Commons (suggested by Mason)
  • Album track list (albumnav template) at bottom of song pages
  • Real deletion policy (for non-notable things, etc.)
  • Discussion page for songs, as opposed to talk page about song wiki? I mean, discussion like, "I like the demo of Soterios Johnson better, but I like the lyrics of the TAW release," not "I think the release date is entered wrong."

Moved this list to discussion --Agent Lex 13:30, 27 March 2008 (UTC)


  • Page Titles (ie - the one that appears in the title bar of your browser, dont have "Jonathan Coulton" in them - which they should as it will help with google search etc. finding these pages when people search for jonathan coulton.
    • Adding these would be a real pain at this point, since we'd have to change the name of the wiki from JoCopedia to something like "Jonathan Coulton wiki". The Jonathan Coulton page should still come up, and of course any page with the words "Jonathan Coulton" in. --Agent Lex 13:07, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
