Hey Michael, Jamie said you were the one to talk to about Musical Madness :) I finished building out a sandbox version of what we want to put on Gagapedia so take a look at it here and let me know if there was anything you want changed with either categories or choices. Please note that the links are red but will be linking to pages on Gagapedia when posted. Also, I left out the videos on the sandbox but they will be added using available Gagapedia videos and then whatever isn't on the wikia I will add in :) Finally, the final product will have an image at the top so people know it is called "Musical Madness." Again, let me know what you think!
Thank you for taking the time to this! It's looking great so far. I have a few suggestion for you: - I think that changing Mother Monster to simply Gaga would be better. - The second album should be The Fame Monster, not The Fame. It's only found in the gallery, not the poll. - artpop should be written as ARTPOP. - For the red carpet looks, I think the text below each image should include a link to the designer page as well. Example: "2014 Oscars by Atelier Versace". Also, we usually use the full designer name (Azzedine Alaïa, Versace) or the label name (Atelier Versace for example, for custom Versace outfits) when identifying outfits. -- For the fashion credits, we usually use Gaga Fashionland (and give credits when we do also) - For the best collaboration, I think the duet with Christina Aguilera for Do What U Want could be added to the list. If the list is still incomplete, other lesser known collab such as Big Girl Now (feat. Lady Gaga) by the New Kids On The Block can be added as well.
That's about it for me, unless new ideas pop up later this week. I also asked my other admins to check if they have anything else to add.
Yes, I'm the owner of the Twitter account for the Gagapedia. As I'm not very active on the project lately, the twitter feed is also quite empty. I would love to see it being active again! I'm interested to see what you have in minds (taking over the Twitter, promotional events like the example with 1D, etc.). We also have a Facebook page that could use some help too ;)
For the twitter account, we can definitely feature content from the wiki on a more regular basis. The wiki has so much wonderful information that could be great for #ThrowbackThursdays or updates from the road. We can try to be as relevent as possible for current news as well from other news sources. It might be a little difficult to monitor it in real time, but I'm very happy to pop on there once in a while and RT cool things, especially from Gaga's own account. Same sort of idea for the facebook page! Let me know if you'd be down with that and we can start figuring out how to get me connected to those accounts.
Also, What do you thin about the Community Choice Awards -esque idea (It'll be the first part in a series called "Musical Maddness). It would just be a fun little piece of programming where people can vote on Gaga's best outfits, videos, things like that. I'm working on it as we speak and we can show it to you before it posts.
That sounds like a great idea! Send me an email at gagapedia[a]gmail.com and I'll provide you with the infos. For the Facebook page, I can only add other editor that I am "friend" with. If that doesn't bother you, then I'll be more than happy to add you on our Facebook page.
As for the Community Choice Awards, it's an excellent idea. It's fun, engaging and also a neat way to showcase the content that we have.

I left a note on Dirty Gogo's wall just because they were the last one to edit. I started the curation, but kept it super simple for now. Feel free to flesh it out!
Thanks for being an exceptional community! Good luck with the app! So excited to download it once it's ready!
A friend on tumblr made this for me, as I asked, and Iwas thinking maybe we could do a Cheek to Cheek them since the ARTPOP era is over?
The username on Tumblr is LadyGagaRumours, they are a great account and I thank them dearly, I would personally think we should like go into affiliation with her or something like that? http://ladygagarumours.tumblr.com/
