Having worked as a librarian and other jobs where organization is key, I tend to spend my time on the site trying to get things in order and accurate. I shuffle, organize, and generally try to keep things from going too higgledy-piggledy so that hopefully pages are easier to find and so that there will be less duplication. If you have a question about what to do about titling an item or some such thing, I'm a good person to ask.
Rule #2: Remember to add to the database, not the bureaucracy.
Rule #3: Any formatting changes should be for the benefit of the user and usability, while not breaking any of the existing structure.
Rule #4: Don't begin anything that you aren't able or willing to finish on your own, but don't forget to ask for help when you need it.
Rule #5: Protect the integrity of the site from vandals and spammers.
Rule #6: Building the editing community is always top priority. (Without editors both "big" and "small", the site weakens and withers.)
Rule #7: Always remember that this is Sean's site. (All others borrow the site. We visit, we babysit, some of us may even be Aunts & Uncles, but it's his baby.)
Rule #8: If what you're doing on LyricWiki isn't fun, do something else. (Hopefully on LyricWiki, but this isn't a job & it isn't work, it's a hobby - a voluntary donation of time and skills and effort. It has to be enjoyable, or burnout will ensue.)
Rule #9: Listen to and love music. (Even better: Listen to and love the music while on LyricWiki. It's a reminder of why we're here.)
Rule #10: Remember that admins are not all-knowing, all-powerful, and omnipresent. (Although there's a rumor that Redxx is perfect.)
Rule #11: Set the (music) volume to 11. (An addition by User:EchoSierra to my original list...one I wish I had thought of myself!)
Pages That I'm Working OnRedxx Has Been Kind Enough to Straighten Up for MeEdit
Bonzo Dog Band:Mr. Apollo (Amazing tongue-in-cheek masterpiece about a guy very much like Charles Atlas...you know the 97-pound-weakling-turned-bodybuilder who ran ads for his fitness program on the back page of comic books? Crank this one up and feel the rumble of the manly bass.)
John Denver:The Eagle And The Hawk (I am the eagle, I live in high country in rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky. I am the hawk, and there's blood on my feathers, but time is still turning, they soon will be dry. And all those who see me, and all who believe in me, share in the freedom I feel when I fly.)
The Beatles:Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise) (I'm sure I could list a half-dozen Beatles tunes, but this one [made on a 4-track recorder] doesn't sound dated over 40 years later. Anyone who doesn't think that pretty much all of modern music doesn't owe a debt to the Fab Four need to listen to this again...and with the volume waaay up!)
The Guess Who:American Woman (The Guess Who is an under-appreciated Classic Rock band. Soulful and gripping. Must be listened to with the intro that isn't usually played on radio stations, though. American Woman, gonna mess your mind...)
