Before [[Series|series]] were added to the database, some series had pages on this wiki listing the releases. Now that the information can be stored in the database properly, they need migrating to the database. Feel free to jump in and help out! :)
  
In [[MusicBrainz Terminology|MusicBrainz Terminology]], a series is a sequence of separate [[Release]]s or [[Track]]s with a common theme, artist, label or genre; usually prominent in the naming of branding of releases or tracks in the series. For release series, individual releases are often denoted with a volume or series number, but this is not necessary for them to be considered a series. A series can vary between two and hundreds of releases.  
+
As well as creating a series entity and linking the release groups or releases (as appropriate) to it, please also remove the links to the wiki pages from the annotations. [http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=text%3A(series+AND+wiki)&type=annotation&method=advanced This search] might be helpful as a starting point.
  
==Examples==
+
The following is a list of existing pages which need migrating ([http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/index.php?title=Special%3APrefixIndex&prefix=Series%2F&namespace=0 or see a full list of pages under Series/]):
  
* [[Release:56a5c8b8-5363-44b9-93a4-d6688e40a8a6|FabricLive 35: Marcus Intalex]] is the 35th release in the ''FabricLive'' compilation series.
+
# [[Series/20th Century Masters|20th Century Masters]]
* [[Release:6aa38a7b-2c4d-4f81-9e45-8bb2577e7e25|Promo Only: Modern Rock Radio, October 2006]] is the October 2006 release in the ''Promo Only: Modern Rock Radio'' series.
+
# [[Series/Absolute|Absolute]]
* [[Release:7a02c993-0511-4592-94b2-e73a09cbe573|Casino Royale, Volume 1: For the Hustlers]] is the first release in a 2-part concept DJ mix series by ''DJ Rectangle''.
 
* Metallica's [[Track:c535fd18-6076-4fde-ab62-0251ce50d6ce|The Unforgiven]], [[Track:fb338428-d39c-4392-b6d3-2cb444847154|The Unforgiven II]] and [[Track:e60d9dbc-70b6-4699-b1af-605db3244a07|The Unforgiven III]] are a track series.
 
 
 
==Style==
 
 
 
* Series of ''releases'' can be linked to each other using the [[Part Of Series Relationship Type|PartOfSeriesRelationshipType]] [[Advanced Relationship|AdvancedRelationship]]. Consult the documentation there for guidelines on when to use this relationship. '''Important''': Not all series may be suitable for use with this relationship.
 
* The community has agreed upon ''weak'' [[Series Style Guideline|SeriesStyleGuideline]]s for a select number of release and track series. Other series have have de facto standards in place through community edit agreement.
 
* [[Series Number Style|SeriesNumberStyle]] discusses [[Volume Number Style|VolumeNumberStyle]] and [[Part Number Style|PartNumberStyle]] which can apply to some release and track series.
 
* [[Subtitle Style|SubTitleStyle]] is often used to separate the series' title and a specific release's title.
 
 
 
==Sources for series information==
 
 
 
* There's a comprehensive [http://www.musiksampler.de/ site about sampler series in Germany] (in German).
 
 
 
==Catalogs of series==
 
 
 
The following is a non-exhaustive set of series cataloged in the MB documentation prior to the implementation of the [[Part Of Series Relationship Type|PartOfSeriesRelationshipType]]. When/if such a relationship is implemented, many, or all of these series below should be linked with this relationship and then removed from the documentation.
 
 
 
Prior to the AR implementation, the standard was that if a series had ten releases or more, to create a page like below and add to the [[Release Annotation|ReleaseAnnotation]] an entry like ''[[Series/Dream Dance|Series/DreamDance]]'' using the below markup:
