About[edit | edit source]

This wiki is an English database for the THE iDOLM@STER: SideM series, including gameplay, character, unit, song, event, and seiyuu info, among others. It can be edited by anyone-- there's plenty to do even if you don't know Japanese (see the to-do list below). Although it's mainly focused on the Mobage SideM game, there are plans to include more LOS information in the future.

For discussion regarding the wiki, or if you need any help with translating/formatting, please go to the Discord server.

Guidelines[edit | edit source]

Editing pages[edit | edit source]

You can edit a page by clicking the 'Edit' or 'Edit Source' button on the top-right corner of the page. Since the wiki uses templates that can't be edited in the visual editor, it may be more useful to use 'Edit Source' for event pages and card data.

For basic information on formatting, view SideMeta:Formatting and SideMeta:Manual of Style.

Translation[edit | edit source]

All translations on this site are done by fans. If you want to translate something, please go ahead and edit the page to include the English translation.

Regarding previous translations[edit | edit source]

If you notice any mistakes or have better ways to word things, you can edit the page. However, please do not do this for event story and magazine translations that have a translator credited (unless it's a simple spelling mistake or something equally minor). If you think a translation is wrong there, it's best to message the original translator first since most translators also upload their translations elsewhere.

You can rename a file or page by going to the top-right of the page and clicking on 'More'. This will open up a drop down with the button 'Move'. Note that if you rename a file/page, you must make sure to replace the name on all other pages that link to it. You can check which pages link to the newly renamed file/page by clicking the "What links here" link in the sidebar. In any case, make sure you keep the checkbox for "Leave a redirect behind" ticked so that any old or missed links can still lead to the newly renamed file/page.

Magazine page formatting[edit | edit source]

Event titles are to be written like this (see Genbu Kurono/Magazines for example). This is to ensure easy linkage to the magazine sections without worrying about what the title of the magazine itself is.

===Event Title===
:Event: [[Event Title]]
:Original title: {{tt|EN title|JP title}}

To add translator's notes, put a * after the part you want to explain further (you can use **, *** for multiple TN). Then put this code at the bottom of the table, before the ending |} tag.

|-
| colspan="2" |'''Translator's Notes'''
<nowiki>*</nowiki> One translation note.

<nowiki>**</nowiki> Another translation note! (You can remove this one if not needed, or add extras).

Please view SideMeta:Manual of Style for other notes on magazine page formatting.

To-Do List[edit | edit source]

If you're unsure where to start editing on this wiki, this is a list of tasks to be done.

Regular updating[edit | edit source]

Mobage event pages and new cards will be added regularly, but there are other pages that should be updated often too.

  1. Idol birthday comments. See Suzaku Akai for example. New birthday comment translations are usually posted on sideM_eng.
  2. Seasonal (SideMemories) idol comments. Add to the common conversations table of the idol's conversations page.

Asset/Content uploading[edit | edit source]

If there are any minor translations you need to upload content (such as titles), then try posting it in the wiki Discord server for help.

  1. Create Ken Yamamura and Takashi Saito pages.
  2. Create Jun Kasama and Toshinari Fukamachi seiyuu pages.

Translations[edit | edit source]

Since SideM has a lot of content, most of it hasn't been translated yet. There is a masterlist of all of the English translations done by the fan community.

In regards to this wiki in particular, things that need to be translated are:

  1. Untranslated card titles.
  2. Event/gacha titles on Events page.

Otherwise, please feel free to edit any of the pages if you wish to provide translations for conversations, magazines, etc.

Content writing[edit | edit source]

Various gameplay related and other pages are still missing information. No knowledge of Japanese is needed, but please view the manual of style.

It may be useful to view the English SideM guide for information on the Mobage.

  1. Create Producer page (in-game Producer; player, and depictions such as in the magazines and anime). Does not need infobox template since the player isn't a character.
  2. Fill out these Mobage pages: Items, Affiliated Idols, Scout Gacha, Social, My Desk, SideMini, P Cards.
  3. Write episode summaries for the anime.

Template Guide[edit | edit source]

A Google Sheets Template Guide can be found here. Currently, the Guide supports CardData, CardData+, CharInfo, UnitInfo, VAInfo, EventInfo, Conversations. Kinda outdated now.
