Artists Edit

Artist pages should be started with the template you can copy bellow. Artist pages are only relevant if the artist has competed in a song contest. Artist pages should not contain a long biography copied from Wikipedia or anywhere else. This is what the Wikipedia link at the bottom of the page is there for. The page can contain a short biography with the most important things from the artists career as long as you write it yourself. Remove the Wikipedia link if the artist doesn't have an article there in English. Do not add links to Wikipedia in other languages. In the list of countries the artist is eligible to represent, only add countries which the artist has recent and clear connections to.

'''Alizee''' is a singer from [[France]].

Songs Edit

Song pages should be started with the template you can copy bellow. Song pages are only relevant if the song has competed in a song contest. Song pages should be very simple and mainly contain information about the results of the song in different contests. Remove the Youtube link if the song doesn't have a video there. If a song fails to qualify for the final, add "SF" in the "Final" column instead of a place number. Songs which finished in the top 3 should have the place box coloured in gold, silver or bronze. You can learn more about colour codes by clicking here.

Special editions Edit

If your contest has hosted a special edition we suggest that you manually create an infobox for the special edition page. Copy the code bellow and fill it with useful information about the special edition. You can get inspiration from already existing pages for other contests special editions. The "Box title" must contain the name of your special edition. Pages about special editions can work well without an infobox. You should create articles both for the special edition as well as the editions of the special edition.

{{Infobox
