  • Garagepunk66 (talk · contribs) - Work in various music genres and subgenres, such as garage rock, British Invasion, psychedelic rock, reggae, soul music, etc.
  • QuickClown (talk · contribs) - Knowledgable about indie music, folk music, grime music, electronic/ambient music, and emergent genres such as Vapourwave. I have a special interest in the history, culture, geography and biographies of music and musicians with a view to de-orphaning finding reliable sources for these (see my contributions to Dave Tyack).
  • Dusk Malice (talk · contribs) I'm a metalhead, but am I really the first goth in this list? I'll mostly be editing everything rock--especially metal, goth, punk, dream pop/shoegaze, and chillwave/synthwave. I can edit copy and format just about any article though.

Adopt an article[edit]

Similar to the collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.
