    I wanted to bring up this idea of making a new section on the Infobox. We should include genres in the infobox of song articles, as it is said on its Wikipedia article.

    For example:

    I Feel It Coming - Pop, Disco

    Finesse (Remix) - R&B, New jack swing

    New Rules - EDM, electropop, tropical house

      Unless if an admin makes a decision.

      Seems unnecessary, but interesting.

      Absolutely unnecessary. We already have it as a category and for something that's so insignificant and irrelevant to the series as a genre, that's all we need. You might argue that listing an artist and a song's year is equally irrelevant and undeserving of their spots in the infobox, but (a) the artists are credited in the game (so it is relevant), and (b) we only have categories by decade and we do not have the specific years elsewhere in the articles.

      Same. In other words, OpposeMe


      .

      If your intention is to add more specific genre categories, then we can make them following what Wikipedia says and then add them all to another category (e.g.: EDM > Disco, Dubstep, Tropical House, etc.).

    • I don't want to create more categories because there are thousands of different genres on the JD Series.

      Same reasoning as Saus here, along with the fact that some songs have so many genres that classifying a song with incomprehensible or at 5+ generes would take a milestone.

      This is pretty much my reasoning, although I wouldn’t have phrased it like this.

      Basically I think that most songs have such a variety of genres that listing them in the infobox wouldn’t be practical– and some genre listings are completely subjective. Even getting genres from Wikipedia has it’s drawbacks as their definition of genres may differ from others.

      It's unnecessary to add some genres and it's a bit hard on picking what their genres is
