Liquipedia:Notability Guidelines

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki

Please note that inclusion of pages in mainspace is ultimately up to the discretion of the Liquipedia staff.

Sadly, not everything can be added to the wiki. We want all our pages to be as up-to-date as possible and to meet our quality standards in general. That is made harder the more pages are created, not to mention additional factors, such as the fact that lower ranked teams tend to not have social media where they announce transfers, and so on.

Now, these are not non-negotiable. This wiki contains coverage of certain teams, players and scenes that do not actually meet our guidelines, yet we allow them because there is an active volunteer(s) that keeps those pages of high-quality. This however does not mean that we will allow you to create a page for your team just because you say you will keep it up to date. On the other hand, if you were to be highly interested in, say, keeping the Spanish national scene up to date, then go ahead! In the cases where this is not the case however, all of this means we have to prioritise: we try to keep our coverage to just the top and the sub-top tier of competitive Dota 2 as defined by the guidelines below. Any pages that do not meet these guidelines will not be deleted, but will be moved to your user space.

If you disagree with the decision for a certain page, please do come chat in our Discord.

Guidelines[edit]

Players[edit]

Who and what to add?[edit]

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 at least one of these, then they are likely notable to warrant a page on this wiki.

  • Achievements: If the player has accumulated at least $1,250 USD in tournaments earnings.
  • Previous history: If the player was a pro-gamer in another game (Warcraft III, StarCraft: Brood War, StarCraft 2, ...)
  • Sponsored: If the player is a notable member of a major organisation.
  • Liquipedia links: If the player has accrued four or more links from Premier or Major events or participated in a Valve-sponsored event.

Teams[edit]

To create a team page or not to create?[edit]

When to create

If the team fulfills one of the following:

  • The team competed or qualified for a Premier or Major Main Event or
  • it is a well established esport organisation or
  • it consists of at least 3 well known players with notable achievements or a Liquipedia page or
  • it has proven itself as a lower tier team due to significant achievements in multiple Minor, Monthly or Weekly events and
  • it has more than 4 members (so it can enter tournaments and such).

When not to create

  • Classic start-up team with no history and no organization
  • Random stack hastily created to compete in a qualifier
  • The team has no significant achievements

To create a new team page, you can use our Team page tutorial.

Leagues[edit]

Leagues and tournaments should be added right away for documentary purposes.

To create a new tournament page, you can follow our Tournament tutorial.

User pages[edit]

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.
