Liquipedia:How to Contribute

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki

Overview

Liquipedia aims to be the definitive source for all things StarCraft:Brood War, Starcraft 2, Dota2, Hearthstone, Super Smash Brothers: Melee, and Heroes of the Storm. This site is a wiki, which means that it is user-driven and is dependent on your contributions. We welcome any and all contributions, the information on this page is to help you get started.

Formatting and Good English

Templates

We have a simple to follow template for almost every type of page. Simply check the List of Templates page for a list for almost any type of page you want to make or wiki-template you want to use! All coding is done for you. If you need some extra code done, just find us in IRC at #liquipedia on QuakeNet.

Spellchecking / Clarity

There is always room to improve the spelling and tone of most of our articles. Even without much factual knowledge, you can help us improve.

Style

We try to enforce a style guide with the intent to give the wiki a unified look. Treat it as a guideline, as other people can always clean up your work later.


Factual Content: Teams, Players, Leagues

Players and Teams

Who and what to add?

Players may receive their individual pages, as long as they surpass a certain threshold of notability. Check the bullet points below. If your chosen player fits in with most or all of these, then it's a good place to start.

  • Previous history: If the player was a pro-gamer in another game (Warcraft 3, StarCraft: Brood War...), or if the team is made up of players with a notable history in Dota 2 or other games.
  • Achievements: If the player/team has earned at least 1,000 EUR in tournaments, or the team is currently competing in the main stage of a premier or major tournament.
  • Sponsored: If the player is a notable member of a major team.
  • Strategies: If this player has made widely known strategies.


To create a new player or team page, follow Player Template or Team Template.

Leagues

Strategy

See the strategy article policy.

User pages

Completely optional, but make your userpage a good indication of who you are! Feel free to be friendly or use some Userboxes to spruce things up.
