The Great Icon Purge of 2019

Many of you have been suffering through constant ajax errors over the past few months when attempting to update your UTAU pages, so this news is a good bit overdue and I apologize.

Unfortunately, these errors were caused by the fact that we had filled up our 300MB file limit. While Hentai and I did minor purges of the file database many times to resize and delete extremely large images, the fact that wikidot does not allow us to set a hard filesize limit on uploads has proven to be too much of an issue. A hard limit of a few hundred KB per icon would certainly suffice, but there were consistently icons uploaded that were in the double-digits of MB.

Therefore, as of today, all UTAU, UTAUderivative and WIPUTAU icons have been converted to externally-hosted images, the same as all other images on the templates, and all hosted images have been purged. Pages have an image placeholder that will go away once an image URL is included on the profile.

You will need to check your page(s) and update them with a URL for an appropriate icon.
Icons should be cropped face or bust images.
Icons will still be resized to 100 by 100 pixels.
Hosting icons on sta.sh or imgur is encouraged.

The staff and I will be going through and re-adding icons to Japanese UTAU pages throughout the next couple of weeks.

We apologize that this is a bit of a cumbersome fix, but this means all storage on the site will be dedicated to much smaller PAGE CONTENT rather than being clogged with un-resized images.

The Great Icon Purge of 2019

WIP UTAU Page Creation
I've added quick page creation boxes to both the front page and sidebar for Work-In-Progress UTAU pages! Please remember that if your UTAU does not currently have a released voicebank but you are working on it with the intention of a release, it counts under "WIP" and the page should be posted under the "wiputau" category instead of under the "utau" category.

Misc. Maintenance
Hey everyone! It's been a bit since the last wiki update. I'm just popping in to say that I did some basic maintenance today.

Seeking Wiki Volunteers
With the recent issue with the wiki running out of space and my review of Recent Changes logs I have noticed several common thrends that can be addressed and you as a wiki viewer can help make the UTAU.wiki a better place.

Space Free: Stop Using .BMP & Size Icons Properly
Crisis averted! After quite a bit of effort, we have freed up more than 25% of the server's file storage by simply resizing and optimizing poorly cropped icons. With the worst offender, a massive 5000x5000px file that took up 5% of our total allocation all by itself.

Storage Limit Reached
I've just been alerted that we've reached our storage limit of 300MB and no more icons can be uploaded.

New .Wiki Domain
The UTAU Wikidot team is proud to announce we have acquired the UTAU.wiki domain for use with this wiki. All the links to the old wiki articles should still work, but all new visitors should be redirected to our new domain.

Comment System And More
Update for June 16, 2014

Updates - Sept. 5th

  • added Indonesia and Malaysia to countries list
  • fixed how empty forms display on profiles
  • added sections for Soundcloud setlist and YouTube playlist for voice samples

Private Voicebanks
Due to problems in the past with OCs, fanvocaloids, pitchloids and stolen voicebanks being passed off as "private" UTAUs, at the moment we cannot allow profiles for unreleased (noncommercial) voicebanks.
Please read the guidelines before posting.

Welcome to the New UTAU Wiki!
Myst here, posting for Yue since he's currently at work. I just wanted to welcome you all to the UTAU Wiki 2.0!
