Since I have the idea to make a wiki page (can't due to Notability), I struggle in my heart what is the definition of Nightcore song.
Prescriptively, a Nightcore song has to be a techno/trance/dance song as the original artist does.
Descriptively, a Nightcore song is a song sped-up and pitched-up.

As the only editor so far, what do you veteran nightcorer think about the definition of Nightcore song? And other stuff I wrote on it?

I don't think it was a good idea at all:

Adverting the idea of what is nigthcore and what is not is the only way to win the fight of defining nightcore. Because now nightcore are widely considered sped-up and pitched-up.

Prescriptively (what we think is ideal & what is in dictionary), a Nightcore song has to be a techno/trance/dance song as the original artist does.
Descriptively (how the word is actually used by the people), a Nightcore song is any song sped-up and pitched-up.

Prescriptive usually lose if not always as it lives in dictionaries only. But we don't have a dictionary or an entry of nightcore so the definition is up the people which is sped-up and pitch-up. We have to make one our own if we want to turn the tide.

If you think it is fine for you not to have the true nightcore definition as long as the bad one dont mess with you.
Spoiler: show
It is selfish.
It is unfair for all people who have never heard of or listen to nightcore, their experience will be ruined by the overwhelming number of pseudo nightcore music, turn away, thinking nightcore is merely speeding up random songs and will never type nightcore in search bar ever again.

And, as one day, on day the last nightcore maker is gone, the world would only remember nightcore as the name of sped-up and pitch-up. Or don't even remember it if there is no record to be found.

Well, it's a fact that there are more people who like fake nightcore to the real one, so, if you start this kind of discussion in the internet, the fake nightcore people will always win. Actually, I don't even know why I'm posting it. To be honest, I don't care that much anymore. Do whatever you guys want/think it's better.

One feature of knowyourmeme is you can only edit if the OP let you join the editorship, so the meme can be absolute autocracy, as what's happening now. If this meme can make its way to first page of google result, hopefully we can turn the tide. It require much extra effort though, consider it has been few years since you let the dummies play.

I'll add it as soon as possible becuase now I have some exams in sight.
Anyway I don't know if it's good or bad to teach people how to nightcore songs, just beacuse if a random guy passes by and decided to nightcore the current pop/rap hit of the moment, he will just add another fake nightcore on youtube to the thousands already there. On the other side, if you don't teach people how to do it and they're not already practical with audio softwares, they can publish some baaaad quality shit. So I don't even know if what I'm saying is right...
