Follow the sectional order. This means that in an article, no Songs in Just Dance 2014 category should appear before a Pop Songs category, and Songs in Just Dance 2 should not come before Songs in Just Dance (video game).
Meta categories should be considered the most important categories, and should always be put first in an article.
- Games / Video Games
- Game Features
Chances are, if you are using a game category, there wouldn't be the use of any of the categories below this one in this list.
Year categories should be put right before the Genre. They should have four-digits, and not two, i.e. 2000s and not 00s. No apostrophes should be present.
Language categories should be placed right above Genre categories. Additionally, an occasional line of German doesn't make the song a "German Song", so please do not add such examples to language cats. For polylingual songs (with the exception of English), add language cats alphabetically. In the case of Hips Don’t Lie which has an official Spanish-language version that is not used in the main series, "Spanish Songs" should not be added.
As far as possible, genres should be taken from Wikipedia. This can include a song’s Wikipedia page or the page of its parent album. Other reputable music websites, such as Genius, can be used as sources.
Additionally, genres must be added in alphabetical order. For the sake of simplicity sake, Disney and Ubisoft Originals will also be taken as a member of the genre cats. However, the Genres category shall not be added to the "Disney" or "Ubisoft Originals" category pages.
Songs by Artist
Categories for "Songs by Artist" should be put right after the "Genre" category/-ies. These categories include "Songs by The Chainsmokers", "Songs by Katy Perry" etc.
Additionally, only artists which have more than 1 song in the franchise qualify. Cover artists should be listed as "Songs by [cover artist]" after "Songs by [original artist]"; for example, Flashdance... What A Feeling should have "Songs by The Girly Team" listed directly after "Songs by Irene Cara".
If an artist "A" has two songs in the series, Song 1 as a solo artist and Song 2 as part of a band "B", this does not qualify artist "A" to have an artist category. Additionally, if Song 2 is band "B"’s sole appearance in the series, both "Songs by A" and "Songs by B" will not be valid in this scenario.
"Songs by Disney" is not a thing. There is already the "Disney" category.
Production credits, e.g. "Songs by Steve Ouimette", should not be listed in song pages unless the producers are directly credited as artists in the song’s by line. Similarly, uncredited artists should be not be listed (e.g. Charli XCX in "Same Old Love") and will also not count towards the "more than 1 song" criterion.
Dance Mode / Gender
Start with the Classic routine, then move on to each alternate routine, e.g.
- Solo Songs
- Solo Males
- Dance Crews
- All Female Dance Crews
In the event that the gender of the coach changes, use both "Solo Females" and "Solo Males".
Difficulty / Efforts
Difficulties should always come before efforts, and any changed difficulty should be added after the first Effort.
- Easy Songs
- Medium Songs
- Hard Songs
- Calm Songs
- Average Songs
- Exhausting Songs
Add the DLCs category to any article of a song which appears as downloadable content in any game after DF/E (in later games, DM/G) categories.
Appearances in Games
Appearances in Games categories should be added in chronological order, and by series' influence.

This category should be used only if the song appears in the main tracklist for the game. For example, since Part of Me does not appear as an on-disc track in Just Dance 4 and Just Dance 2014, the categories "Songs in Just Dance 4" and "Songs in Just Dance 2014" should not be used for that song.
Not to be confused with the earlier DLCs category.

Alternate Routines / Mashups
Songs without alternate routines and Songs without Mash Ups are not to be added to any article.

Songs with avatars in (game) categories should always be put after all the other categories, and before the first miscellaneous category.
ALL performer categories must be put together and in alphabetical order. However, if there is no citation proving the performers are legitimate (with the exception of songs from Just Dance) performer categories should not be added.
Choreographer categories should not be added. (For example, if Mehdi Kerkouche choreographs a routine but does not perform in that routine, do not add his category to the article for that routine.)
ALL miscellaneous categories are to be put last and in alphabetical order.
Categories Which Should Not Be Added
These categories are used regularly, but should not be added by itself. Usually the following categories come with templates, which are all that is needed on the article and not a duplicate of the category.

These categories are NOT to be added to mainspace articles, but instead to, and only to, Files.
