Looking for moderator(s)

Annoucements / August 7, 2016 / No Comments

While the main staff members are busy with other issues, UtaiteDB is looking for a trustworthy person or people to watch over the site. Your main task is simply to check the website a few times per week to make sure nothing bad is happening. The primary purpose of this recruitment is to make sure there’s backup when the other staff members are unavailable. If possible, you can familiarize yourself with the editing guidelines on the site and enforce them as necessary (ask kan0nica and stephieku for details). Requirement for this task is that you have been an active editor on UtaiteDB or VocaDB, or there’s some other way we can …..

Updating UtaiteDB

Technical / November 2, 2014 / No Comments

UtaiteDB is finally open!

Welcome to UtaiteDB! I’m really bad at introductory posts (you can read riipah’s post if you wanted one), so I’ll just cut right to the chase. The purpose of this database to (try to) catalog and document everything related to utaites. This means albums, covers, and people related to the utaite scene. The database is heavily based on VocaDB’s code, which was created with the VOCALOID scene and its unique qualities in mind. It is likely that there will be big changes in the system to accommodate utaites; in particular, how the artist string and arrangement covers should be handled. For those who want to help with the database, there …..
