I too think this is a good idea. Note that some such threads already exist, like the "Shipwrecks and the blues" thread: http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?amp;Itemid=128&topic=2831.0

Hi Pan, the shipwreck thread lyrics really need and deserve to be entered as individual pages in weeniepedia, then we can easily tie them into a 'Disasters' tree structure. We can also put a link back to the forum thread on the 'Disasters' category page.

Hi all,
I've been kind pecking away at things.  I've been working on the following:
   * adding Guitar Slim & Jelly Belly Lyrics as I transcribe them
   * started a Willie McTell lyrics page and put in "It's My Desire"
   * started Sam Collins artist and lyrics pages and entered "It Won't Be Long"
   * updated "Adventures in Vestapol" to include non-slide performances in Vestapol from the George Mitchell Collection and "Rosca Mama Blues"
   * doing some editing of earlier entries
all best,
Johnm

I've added categories under Arcana:

     
  • Category:Disaster
  • Category:Disease
  • Category:Gambling
  • Category:Prison
  • Category:Railroads
  • Category:War


...and indexed a bunch of songs to them, many more to do, feel free!

Maybe 'railroads' should be 'transportation'? Easy to rearrange, let me know.

Other, new, cats that occurred to me:

Work
Religion
Politics

Great job Rivers!

What about murders (or crime, as you already had earlier)?

Locations also come to mind.

Cheers

I do think "alcohol" is worth having, or maybe "alcohol/ drugs" to encompass Patton's spoonful and the like.

Yeh the engraving was a lucky find and fits the style for a category page.

Crime definitely. They need to be broad enough but not too broad, 'crime' does it, 'Murder' too limited.

Another category would be 'Hoodoo', for all the folkmagic references.

Let's not mix alcohol and drugs! Seriously I'd like to keep them distinct. Drugs can be recreational and/or medical. I thought spoonful was a ref to semen? Haven't listened to Patton's song recently.

...have got up to the end of letter 'D' in the combined lyrics page.
Please check it out and opine whether or not the categories make sense, they're easy to change around, this is a first cut. I'm dying to put a "Snowmobiles" category up.

Alcohol. Or was there something else in it?

Just to let you know that I created an artist page for Banjo Ikey Robinson in weeniepedia and a Banjo Ikey Robinson lyrics  page too. I added all the lyrics we worked out so far in this thread.

I believe I'm going to cry with happiness. You totally nailed the structure mr mando. I just put a [[category:banjo ikey robinson]] tag on the B.I.R. lyrics category page so that the
Code: [Select]
[+] drill-down-the-tree-whizziness control appears on the top level artists' page.

Rivers, before you throw a fit, I just noticed that the error I made with my first try didn't completely disappear. The system left an empty article here. I didn't find a way to delete this so far, but I'm sure you know how.
