Users can add songs to the webpage given that they also provide the lyrics. Further, it is possible to add translations of existing lyrics to other languages, or request a translation to a certain language. Multiple translations of a songtext to the same language can exist.

While being close to the idea of a wiki, there are some major differencs. First and foremost, every songtext or translation has an owner. Other users can only suggest changes to a songtext or translation by writing a publicly visible comment directly under the songtext or translation, posting in the forum of the webpage or sending a personal message to the author or to someone from a special group of users having the rights to edit existing lyrics (see FAQ#2.5, for information on special user groups see StaffRoles).
