Liquipedia:Notability Guidelines

From Liquipedia Smash Wiki

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

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 Smash 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.


When is a page deserved?[edit]


  • Players listed on National or International Power Rankings.
  • Top 5 players listed on Regional Power Rankings.
  • Players who finish in the top 16 of any Major Tournaments or top 32 of any Premier Tournaments for Melee and Ultimate (or Wii U before 2019), given the player has more results outside of the qualifying tournament.
  • Players notable in other games.
Tournament organizers[edit]

People who have been head organizer of at least three eligible tournaments.

Other people[edit]

People who have made significant contributions to the Smash scene. This can include commentators or other broadcasting roles in at least three eligible tournaments. Other individuals may be included at editor discretion.


Most tournaments are welcome. That said, the focus of this wiki is on regionals and above. Weeklies are discouraged unless they are particularly notable.

Tournament pages must include brackets. Exceptions to this rule may include:

  • If the tournament is old and the bracket has been lost, but the tournament is notable regardless
  • If other sources are available to verify player placements


When to create[edit]

If the team fulfills one of the following:

  • The team is a well-established esport organisation with a number of sponsors, preferably with pages on the other Liquipedia wikis as well;
  • At least two players with a Liquipedia page;
When not to create[edit]
  • No notable achievements
  • No website/social media
