Matches and maps[edit]

If in a match you know all the maps that were chosen but not all of them were played, do not delete the rest. Instead, in the part where you pick the winner, place a "skip" there. If will show the map but it is gonna count it as not played. DO NOT DELETE INFORMATION WE HAVE. Take a look at the second of group C in the psistorms sc2 league as a example. --DARKING (talk) 12:07, 13 February 2017 (KST)

Your File upload - usage of copyrighted images on Liquipedia[edit]

Hi,

you uploaded an image to Liquipedia commons without specifying file information, especially no license/copy-right information.

I fixed that for this file, but for the future please provide at least the following information:

  • Who holds the copyright to that file? (Usually the person/organisation that took the image - Param |copyright=)
  • Was a permission for usage on Liquipedia given? Or are there other reasons why we can use the file? (For some organisations we have general permissions in our Copyrights Repository. If you own the copyright to these images, state this explicitly in the file information. If permission was given otherwise we need that, please send this written permission to photos@liquipedia.net and add the needed information to the file page on commons. Use the |license=permission|note=<here why/how we got permission>)
  • Where did you get that file from? If possible give the link from where you got the file. (Use the |source= param for this).

You can find more information at the copyright guide. If you want/need help you can find that on the Liquipedia Discord (e.g. in the starcraft2 channel).

Also please name images apropriately in the future. (Use a descriptive and concise filename, e.g. Stephano_2012MLGSpringChampionship.jpg instead of IMG_0086273.jpg. You will not be able to change the filename once you've uploaded the file.)

NA Contender 2021 Season 1[edit]

Hi,

regarding the NA Contender 2021 Season 1 pages:

  1. When uploading an image (here the infobox image you use) you need to specify a valid license, in this case that would be "fairuse", because we can use it under a fair use assumption. The copyright holder has to be filled in the copyright param and not into the license param. I already fixed that for this image, but please add the correct license during future uploads.
  2. The "tournament" param in the {{GroupTableLeague}} template is used to define from which page data is to be queried to determine the group table display. If one enters a page that doesn't exist into that param (like you did) it will result in the template not getting any results. If the param is left empty it will default to the page the template is used on. I already fixed that for the above mentioned 3 pages.
  3. Adding "TBD" for players in every match will result in a slightly worse runtime and hence should not be done. Also it is not how we usually display matches with tbd players on the wiki. I fixed that already for these pages.
  4. Please create subpages in a way that they have all the necessary data set. E.g. The_NA_Apprentice/2021/Season_1/Code_A is missing lots of information (that usually get set by infobox league) for the storage in the DB. You have several options to add those in a not displayed way:
  • Usage of {{HDB}}:
    Adding this template at the top of a page will result in data being retrieved from its parent page and various variables being set with that data. (Those variables are needed for e.g. the match templates to store data in a correct way into the DB.) You also can set stuff manually in this template.
  • Usage of {{infobox league/hidden}}:
    This can be used the exact same way as infobox league. The only difference is that it does not display anything.
I fixed that already for these pages.

Usage of images on liquipedia[edit]

Hey,

you uploaded the following images to liquipedia (Commons) for which no file information, especially no license/copy-right information, was specified:


I already fixed the licenses where they were fair use. For the other cases I removed the images usage and marked the file for deletion on commons. If you should have a written permission from the copyright holder stating that Liquipedia is granted permission to use the image feel free to cantact me (preferably via Discord) AND send the permission to photos@liquipedia.net.

For the future please provide at least the following information during the upload:

  • Who holds the copyright to that file? (Usually the person/organisation that took the image - Param |copyright=)
  • Was a permission for usage on Liquipedia given? Or are there other reasons why we can use the file? (For some organisations we have general permissions in our Copyrights Repository. If you own the copyright to these images, we need a written permission from you. If permission was given otherwise we need that. Please send this written permission to photos@liquipedia.net and add the needed information to the file page on commons. Use |license=permission|note=<here why/how we got permission>)
  • Where did you get that file from? If possible give the link from where you got the file. (Use the |source= param for this).


You can find more information at the copyright guide.
