Liquipedia:How to Contribute

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki

Overview[edit]

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[edit]

Templates[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

Teams and Players[edit]

Who and what to add?[edit]

Players may receive their individual pages, as long as they surpass a certain threshold of notability. If your chosen player fits in with most or all of the following bullet points, 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.

Strategy[edit]

User pages[edit]
