Feel free to request additions to the main page

Upcoming Gigs

While muse are busy recording the fifth album, d'you think it would be a good idea to put something like 'Muse are busy recording their fifth album, no time for gigs!]] under the 'upcoming gigs' section of the front page? looks a bit silly bare like that. --Wilfio 15:26, 11 February 2009 (GMT)

BT Digital Music Awards

It's a bit late but should be include button on the main page for voting? ۞ 19:17, 10 September 2008 (BST)

Does the award not depend on the site being registered before voting begins? --Tene 18:04, 11 September 2008 (BST)
Nope it appears you can still nominate any site. Most Muse fans will have most likely voted for MuseLive by now though, I guess. --03:31, 14 September 2008 (BST)

Musewiki general improvement

I had a idea for a way to improve the content of Musewiki overall - that is appealing to members of the forums to contribute material to musewiki. Too many people view it as a static website as opposed to something to be involved in (or at least a view that seemed to be common) - what we could do is appeal to people forums to contribute anything they can to improve the content of articles, for example, scans of set lists where they are absent, typing up articles from magazines, scanning in CDs etc that aren't in the discography, tabs, and generally promoting the site to get more people to contribute and realise this place actually exists (particularly the huge number of new fans who weren't around when this site was launched).

Wanted to run it by here first and see what others think, and then post a few threads on the official forums and muselive. ۞ 01:28, 3 September 2008 (BST)

Sounds good to me, it's hard to get across on teaching poeple to wiki though. It's like a learning curve for everyone! I get loads of emails of people saying "hey, this needs to be changed to that" and i constantly have to reply to telling them they should try doing it. i suppose it's the complexity of it all that scares me, but i'm definitely up for promoting stuff :D --crazybobbles 10:08, 3 September 2008 (BST)
Awesome, it would be great to get some new regulars to improve it all before the fifth album comes out and the next wave of new fans comes along. The coding will probably scare some people off but if I make a post I'll tell them to hassle me about it, I don't mind getting stupid questions, and getting across the point that Musewiki can and should be edited by anyone. We could have a sandbox like wikipedia. I'll also write a few easy to understand bits on things like using citations to add to the references article. ۞ 17:45, 3 September 2008 (BST)
You know, MuseWiki could be a lot better (and have a lot more contributors) if it were just more fun, you know? It doesn't have to be all uptight and referenced and stuff. Just loosen up. -- 7 00:54, 13 September 2008 (BST)
There's plenty of non-serious articles. Like the page about Matt. But for pages about albums, songs, gear and gigs, where people want good information on things, then references and such are very necessary. There's no point in having a lot of contributions if people might as well be making it up as they go along. It's not a matter of being uptight, just practical. --۞ 03:31, 14 September 2008 (BST)

Live single linkage suggestion

Is it an idea to put up a link to the corresponding gig on a page of a single which has a live version on it? Like this:
DE, BX maxi CD

  1. New Born
  2. Map of Your Head
  3. Piano Thing
  4. Plug in Baby (live)

--BenjiWL 14:03, 18 July 2007 (BST)

Sounds reasonable, it's a wiki, so just change it :) / Time Q 15:09, 18 July 2007 (BST)
A place to veiw all the pictures in the Wiki.- Debase Masons Grog
 That already exists at Special:Imagelist BigBlueFish 16:01, 19 March 2006 (GMT)

Request and action: You asked for a different logo and a few of us put some up. Nothing has been changed on what the logo will be. I will change the logo to the one i made to see if you guy's think that it is better.

Action: FourthMember removed my Hidden Noise for Jimmy Kane. Which is mean. As a note, the noise is real.

-- I can't hear it (on my version at least) Jpatrick
-- You couldn't hear a distinctive "Poot" sound, and then a smashing sound at 1:17 on Jimmy Kane?
-- I hear something breaking Jpatrick
-- See? Un-deletage please.


Request: Could someone add a link to the Quotes page to the front page? Jpatrick

I agree, or somewhere where it can be seen. --Susurr0 09:28, 24 November 2007 (GMT)


I don't know how to use Wiki properly lol so: will somebody change "Eerie whispers" on the lyrics of TofDA to "Alien whispers"?

If the lyrics were that then someone would change it. But its not --crazybobbles 21:36, 9 January 2007 (GMT)

Would it be a good idea to link Guitar, bass, etc under the band member's names to the particular page on their instrument? --M3cky 09:44, 11 March 2007 (GMT +8)


Are you guys aware that Muse has a link to here on their website? Just wondering. Salty 21:22, 3 August 2006 (BST)

Aye, knew about it, Tom Kirk is particularly keen on the site, especially due to the reason that he can go to others "Look, im part of the band, look at my page" haha. --crazybobbles 12:42, 20 October 2006 (BST)

Innocent Voices

On, it has a compilation album listed called Ethnic Whispers. It says one of the songs listed is called "Innocent Voices", and it says it is by Muse (other sources say so as well). It also has a description of Muse that matches with the Muse we know. I don't know if it's right or not, because the song doesn't sound very much like Muse and it's not on this site anywheres. Salty 00:26, 28 December 2006 (GMT)

It isn't, it just says it's our Muse because the names are exactly the same.-DMG

Main page

What about a proper main page? I mean, with featured articles, news, "did you know...?", and things like that? -Susurr0 11:21, 24 February 2007 (UTC+1)

Sounds cool. I'd be willing to help, but only if someone who's better at wiki-ing than me helps to because I'm not really as advanced as others.... 7 05:17, 17 December 2007 (GMT)

see: User:7 - Project: Main Page‎ for ideas


Would it be possible to add a link to Videography from the sidebar? Just think it might make life easier than having to do through Discography.--Jakalope 11:49, 21 March 2007 (GMT)

I agree. --Susurr0 16:04, 9 April 2007 (UTC+2)
What happened to this? It's hard to find it. --Susurr0 09:28, 24 November 2007 (GMT)

A few things

Since it's almost three weeks after April fools, do we need the note on the front page anymore?

And what's with all the 500.shtml errors? ۞ 17:57, 19 April 2007 (BST)

yeah i keep getting those errors too --Wilfio 18:16, 19 April 2007 (BST)
Another thing: how can we undo all those changes that make album covers link straight to the article? It's now impossible to view larger images of the cover art.۞ 08:57, 20 April 2007 (BST)
Just click on the "Redirected from" link. --Tene 17:02, 20 April 2007 (BST)

Nice touch with the random phrases under the title, just noticed it. ۞ 17:12, 14 May 2007 (BST)

Yeah its sort of my thing when i make fansites haha. Musecast and crazybobbles has it so i thought, why not install an extension just for it. I might look for other areas of the wiki to do the random stuff too. --crazybobbles 01:30, 15 May 2007 (BST)
Haha, yeah, they're hilarious, I love them. Good work. -Susurr0 23:34 21 May 2007 (UTC+2)

Frontpage image

I have no idea if it's just my PC or whatever but the image on the frontpage seems to collide with the seperator bar thingies :|

Any way of fixing this?

I've got a feeling I know the solution. --Tene 18:20, 7 June 2007 (BST)
Hah hah.
Not funny.
Surely it would be simpler to make the page work properly. I'm trying to help improve MuseWiki for everyone not just for myself

Just move [[Image:MuseBand2.jpg|Right|thumb|[[Muse]], the band]] below ==MuseWiki== in the code and the picture wont be impaled! I'd do it myself, but I don't have sysops rights.

Band Member Photos

Why not have some a bit more recent, maybe even of them playing? 7 07:07, 18 November 2007 (GMT)


The photos would probably need to match in some way, though.

Ah here's a project for you, round off as many muse photos as you can and turn them into small boxes, then bam! I will use the random script to generate random images each time so people dont get bored of the images :) --crazybobbles 20:41, 27 February 2008 (GMT)
Ha! And I thought I was going crazy! See: User:7/Sandbox 7 00:30, 13 April 2008 (BST)


What about a motto for the site?! Sugggestions? 7 07:09, 18 November 2007 (GMT)

Now for a marketeer type person I would say our motto would include the words "Muse, muse band, muse fansite, muse wiki, haarp tour, royal albert hall" and a few other search terms that would aid the site from getting more viewers ;) My trait for fansites is I always have loads of subtitles randomly generated on the homepage, this is a homage to futurama's subtitle at the beginning of each episode (which is why I wrote "In color" but noone got the reference :() Feel free to use my talk page if you have more questions that probably can be answered by myself since I'll most likely forget that this page was edited, should stalk them relly haha --crazybobbles 20:41, 27 February 2008 (GMT)


Any chance we could have the code for NavFrames installed to allow for expandable tables? Would be great for tidying away excessive technical information in some articles (see discography talk page!). ۞ 18:31, 14 December 2007 (GMT)

We need someone with an access to MediaWiki pages. --Muserwiki 04:07, 15 December 2007 (GMT)
Which would be Crazybobbles when he's next able to - but collapsible tables seem to be preferable so maybe they're a better choice to use once the code is copied over. ۞ 20:28, 15 December 2007 (GMT)
Aren't admins capable of editting them as well, maybe admins have less power on this wiki... --Muserwiki 17:15, 16 December 2007 (GMT)


I think the colours on this page should be more similar to our colours (read: dissimilar to Wikipedia). I was thinking of taking the colours from our logo and varying the blue and yellow from that, keeping the ratios of each of the three hex (#ff ff ff) parts the same. Though I'm no expert in colours and whatnot so I don't know whether that'd look good. I mean, the blue here doesn't look like our blue and I think maybe... a lighter yellow would be okay for the left column?

Also, does anyone know where all the styling is stored? I think we could curvelatiousify (ahem) the tabs, corners and whatnot.

Also, perhaps we could ratify our colour scheme generally. --Tene 01:59, 6 January 2008 (GMT)

Oh... sure. That's a good idea, I guess. I'll change the version on User:7/Main Page Project as an example. 7 06:11, 6 January 2008 (GMT)


It's been a few years since the cryptography thing, aren't there higher priority thing (like our new songs chronology) that could be linked on the main page instead? ۞ 23:01, 21 January 2008 (GMT)

Cheers! ۞ 00:08, 22 January 2008 (GMT)

It's been gone for a few days now...or is it just me? ۞ 15:14, 5 February 2008 (GMT)

See here. --Tene 15:22, 5 February 2008 (GMT)


Can I ask why we still have the Muse in history section here when no one bothers to update it?
Why don't we have like on 7's idea of haveing a did you know section with many facts.
Any thoughts?

Gilly 13:50, 16 February 2008 (GMT)

I'd hazard a guess that no-one's come up with a list of trivia to put in that section, yet. --Tene 17:25, 16 February 2008 (GMT)
7 has got a few ideas on his main page but fair point Gilly 19:12, 16 February 2008 (GMT)
...Take a look. I reckon that's enough for the moment. I really hope someone adds the Did You Know section before we look any stupider with a month-old This Week in History on our main page. User: 01:26, 27 February 2008 (GMT)

As Long As We're Putting Bulletins on the Main Page....

...we should add something about The Campaign to inform potential helpers! User: 01:18, 27 February 2008 (GMT)

I'll add it on so it will appear on the bottom bit --crazybobbles 20:41, 27 February 2008 (GMT)

Muse News (Mews Nuse?)

Lame jokes aside, I think that the Muse News section should be changed from showdesc="true" to showdesc="false", which would take off that little paragraph beneath the title of the story to make the page seem less cluttered. What does everyone else think?7 06:20, 14 April 2008 (BST)

MuseWire on the Main Page?

Hmm? Would it visually overload the page? Would it fit? Would it replace something else? 7 23:38, 3 June 2008 (BST)

BHaR Tour Edition Intro/'350.54'

Shouldn't we have a page on this?

So people know what I'm talking about:

There's also a link in that thread to the original file related to the whole cryptology thing from 2005, for an extended history/more info about the "song."

What d'you reckon?


I, MuseIsAbsolution, hereby announce the founding of Wolstenholme-ism! I know it's quite lame, but I just really agree with whoever else said that Matt Bellamy seems to have a MASSIVE page in comparison to Chris and Dom. Feedback would be nice. We have improvements to make here on MuseWiki.

Thanks MuseWiki
