This is a list of ideas which are deemed either sorely needed, useful or interesting. If you're looking for something to help out with, look no further!

Royal pains in the arse

  • Publicise. Srsly, need wider exposure.
  • Replace all instances of Image: with File:
  • Use Template:Backto at the foot of each page
  • Hunt for links to and bypass redirects

Layout and appearance

  • Hunt artefacts visible with various layout engines and fix them
  • Investigate recent CSS implementation, seeing whether any could be used to improve MuseWiki's appearance
  • Wade through our templates and simplify/prettify if at all possible
  • Investigate, design and implement a way of laying out media verification hash tables within pages
  • Typographical students and those in the know: check whether our conventions are correct
  • People with Internet Explorer 8: Keep checking the wiki to make sure it displays correctly with IE8. IE is notorious for its layout engine being incomplete and buggy and MuseWiki developers don't use Windows.

Resources, searching and verification

  • Scrape various media (anyone near a national library or a proficient human web-spider?) for press/coverage relating to Muse, add it to our reference archive
  • Find circular references within MuseWiki articles, remove and provide rationale for doing so on the article's talk page.
  • Get the official Muse board and Muselive to make sure topic IDs don't change. This is a real verification headache.
  • Transcribe various audio and video interviews and add to our media reference archive.
  • Anyone who knows a language other than English: translate foreign-language articles and add to our media reference archive.
  • Use our reference archive to write and/or expand MuseWiki articles, adding references as appropriate.


  • Hunt authorship and source information for uploaded files, tell authors about creative commons and ask whether they'd be happy licensing under a CC licence (tres cool)
  • Descriptions for files which currently have none


  • Expand and clean up the gear section—particularly suited to musicians in the know.


  • For gigs you went to: add information. Please encourage others to do so as well!
  • Make sure our links to recordings are up to date, add any that are missing.
  • Use recordings to construct and complete speech tables.
    • Anyone who knows a language aside from English: transcribe and translate foreign speech.


  • Rescue videos from YouTube using youtube-dl, upload to DailyMotion and change links from MuseWiki to point to DailyMotion (to mitigate Warner f******y).

Codemonkey bananas

  • Use HTML5 audio instead of the flash player for Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari
  • Make references work for people who are not logged in
  • TLS/SSL?
  • Set up wiki bots for admins


  • Get each member of Muse to join and edit. Also known as "take over the world", with originality.
