How to Propose New Style Guidelines

  • Alert.png Status: This page is out of date, but still helpful. Please read the page on the StyleCouncil for current (ever changing) practices.

If you think there is a need for a new StyleGuideline, please proceed as follows:

  1. If you are unsure, whether this has been discussed already, you could ask on the UsersMailingList. Also please search the MusicBrainzWiki for related places where the issue might have been discussed already.
  2. Raise the issue on the StyleMailingList.
  3. If people start to pick your proposal up, or if you need to describe it in detail, please create a wiki page for it.
  4. If consensus is reached, your page will eventually be made official by a member of the StyleCouncil. Don't do this yourself.

That's about it.


  1. There is currently no category for proposed EditingGuidelines, go ahead and create it, if you need it
