Me, Dante, TDs, Joshua and Caba can work on the articles. Anyone else who speaks Spanish - sign up here- so we can form the units.

Should I begin searching for old articles?

This is really cool and I expect will be an awesome asset to the community. I don't think I can contribute much -- used to know way the hell too much about this band but fortunately set that obsessiveness aside long enough ago I don't remember much. But I did correct the lyrics to the new songs last night as well as I was able to hear, so at least there's that.

If you wanna post the Foss stuff that you've been posting on TMVMexico on the wiki that'd be good...or any other old gems.

So... It's really no different than this place other than it's more organized and we can't talk to each other? Seems like a waste of time, so prove me wrong!


A wiki is not at all the same thing as a forum. It's information is shared in both but the diffrence, among other things, is that you can find answers and facts ur looking for much easier on a wiki.

Working on a price guide for CDs/LPs/ etc. For Omar/Volta.

A rough draft should be up soon for scrutiny and commenting on. Its not an end all be all, buy just a guide for what are good prices, or current prices

I'd suggest copying TMV-related articles from wikipedia onto the page. A straight copy of the Omar page (for example) would right now be more informative than the limited bullet-point thing we have going now. From there editors could refine it to be more TMV-specific. Hopefully that will get the ball rolling a little.

I added another show page, this time I also tried to use a picture, but the thumbnail of it doesn't work. I've described the problem on the talk page at the Volta Wiki. Any help is appreciated.


I'll get on that tomorrow; looks like something that can be fixed pretty quickly.

Have you have time to find out why it's not working?

I would not just copy wikipedia articles, at least you should note the source. Who are the people writing about TMV at Wikipedia? You should ask them to write for The Mars Volta Wiki as well, maybe they are also Coma members?

I'm working on sourcing as I go along. I am for the moment copying wiki articles just to have a template, but I imagine they will drastically change as time goes by.

Does anyone have the facebook comments saved from that period of mudslinging between Thomas and Cedric? Trying to flesh out the details of the feud between the two.

Hopefully I can throw it there tonight. Sorry things have been going slow. Mataxia has been doing wonders with LP6 lyrics. I'm slowly adding stuff, but I'm pretty busy with PhD applications. Please, if you are bored, spend some time adding some material. I've done some write ups on the Octa tour, but we need sources and just MORE stuff.
