|−|The [[MusicBrainz]] database can only hold some types of information; this Wiki can be used for [[Additional Metadata|AdditionalMetadata]] that is helpful when editing or voting, such as information on [[Identically Named Artists|IdenticallyNamedArtists]], and lists of artists & albums that are [[Not Duplicate Artists|NotDuplicateArtists]] and [[Not Duplicate Albums|NotDuplicateAlbums]]. There is also information on [[International Artists|InternationalArtists]]. | |

|−|The [[MusicBrainz Documentation|MusicBrainzDocumentation]] is a major current project on the Wiki. We have started [[Restructuring The Documentation|RestructuringTheDocumentation]] ; i.e. to move the [[MusicBrainz Documentation|MusicBrainzDocumentation]] from the main pages into the Wiki. The docs on the main pages are often quite dated, so we will try to update and intertwingle them here. This will finally lead to [[WikiDocs]], a homepage that is completely based on the [[MusicBrainz Wiki|MusicBrainzWiki]] | |

|−|* [[MusicBrainz Documentation|MusicBrainzDocumentation]] -- an index of everything there is. No matter what the current status is. | |
|−|* Category Documentation Official -- should replace '[[Original Version|OriginalVersion]]' which is a terribly [[Bad WikiName|BadWikiName]] | |

|−|* [[Moin Moin Wiki Syntax|MoinMoinWikiSyntax]] is about the technical details of editing wiki pages. | |
|−|* [[Good Wiki Style|GoodWikiStyle]] (especially [[Good WikiName|GoodWikiName]] and [[Bad WikiName|BadWikiName]]) are more about how to behave well in this wiki. | |
|−|* The [[WikiDocs]] concept outlines the future plans for this wiki. | |
|−|* Finally you can test anything in the [[ Sand Box| SandBox]] or the [[Sandbox]] (don't ask me why we have two of them!). | |
