Roster Changes[edit]

These are the steps that you should take to fully update our wiki in the case of a roster change.

  1. Front Page:
    • Make a news item announcing the roster change.
  2. Player Page:
    • Update the player's infobox team history, including the appropriate date (just month and year).
    • Update the player's infobox current team.
    • Optional - Update the player's bio. Include relevant information related to the roster change (for example, if player A is added to the roster of team X because player B was dropped from the starting lineup, you would mention player B in player A's bio). This isn't required especially if your're not a native English speaker, but it is encouraged.
    • If Applicable - Update the player's social media links.
    • If Applicable - Update the player's stream link.
    • If Applicable - Update the player's list of alternate IDs.
  3. Team Page:
    • Update the roster, either adding a player to the starting roster, changing the information, or moving the player to the list of former players.
    • Update the timeline section, including a reference.
    • Update the team history section, including relevant details and a reference.
  4. Former Team Page:
    • If the player is currently a free agent (i.e. the player leaving edit was already completed):
      • Add a |newteam= in the Former Players section.
    • If this is a direct move from one team to another:
      • Move the player to Former Players, add a leave date, and add a new team.
      • Update the timeline section, including a reference if possible.
  5. Roster Portal:
    • Update the Confirmed Changes section.
    • If there were any rumors involving this change, mark them as confirmed or disproven (or unsuccessful), including a reference.

Tournament Coverage[edit]

These are the steps that you should take to fully update our wiki when tournament games or series finish. For Premier and many Major events, all of this will be done by our staff, but community members are welcome to help out, especially if we are late updating something.

End of Series[edit]

  1. Tournament Page:
  2. Update Schedule
  3. If Regular Season, update the Standings and Crosstable
  4. If Playoffs, update the Bracket or Group Standings
  5. Front Page:
    • Update Featured Leagues if applicable (Standings and/or Bracket) (Leagues can be updated at end of Playday)

When Possible[edit]

  1. Add the VOD or VODs to Schedule:

Tournament Ends[edit]

  1. Front Page:
    • If the tournament is over, update the news.
  2. Player Page:
    • If the tournament was relatively major in the player's career thus far, write a line about it in their biography.

Tournament Page Creation[edit]

  1. Tournament Page:
    • Create it using the tournament page prefill.
  2. Templates:

Team Formation[edit]

These are the steps you should take to fully update our wiki when a new team is created (or when you are creating a page for a team that we did not yet have a page for).

  1. Check to see if the team meets our notability guidelines.
  2. Team page:
    • If it does, create the page for the team using the team template.
    • Create all relevant redirects (e.g. EG to Evil Geniuses)
  3. Teamnames Module:
    • Add the team name/names to the teamnames module: {{Teamnames}}m (see documentation there as well as Help:Setting Up Teams for more information).
    • If you would like to use the same short name that another team had in the past, do not use the short name as an input, but it's fine for two teams to have the same output short name.
  4. Images:
    • Upload a 60-pixel-wide, 25-pixel-tall, transparent-background .png image at [Teamlink]logo std.png (for example Evil Geniuseslogo std.png).
      • If you don't have an image available, make a redirect from this location to File:Logo std.png
    • Upload a square dimension, transparent-background .png image at [TeamLink]logo square.png (for example Evil Geniuseslogo square.png).
      • Again if you don't have an image available, make a redirect from this location to Logo square.png.
    • If this team is the sister team of a team that already has logos uploaded, and the images are identical, make redirects from the new team's filenames to the existing filenames instead. Make sure you don't make double redirects.
    • See Help:Setting Up Teams for more information.
  5. CargoConcept:
  6. Other:
    • Follow the guidelines in the roster changes section for updating player pages reflecting their joining the team.
    • If the team was just formed, created a front-page news item about the formation.

Team Disbanding[edit]

These are the steps you should take to fully update our wiki when a team is disbanded.

  1. Add the argument |isdisbanded=yes in the infobox (or |isrenamed= or |neworg= as appropriate).
  2. Add a timeline entry with reference (if possible).
  3. Update the text in the team's history biography if applicable and you are comfortable writing in English.
  4. Update the introductory sentence ("Evil Geniuses is a North American team" to "Evil Geniuses was previously a North American team).
  5. Follow the guidelines in the roster changes section for updating player pages reflecting their leaving the team.
  6. Update the front-page news.
  7. If this was the sister team of another team, update the CargoConcept to move this team to inactive. If you're not sure what to do about this talk to River.

Making a New Player Page[edit]

  1. Player Page:
    • Make the player page using the player creation form.

Player Namechanges[edit]

  1. Team Page:
    • Change the player's name in the team's starting roster & navbox
    • Write in the team's timeline that the player namechanged
  2. Player Page:
    • Move the player's page to the new URL. Leave behind a redirect.
    • Update the infobox to state the player's new ingame name.
    • Add the player's old IGN to the list of alternate IDs.
    • Write a line in the biography about the switch.
    • Change the introduction and the first line of the biography if it doesn't use {{StandardBioSentence}}, where the player's name is in quotes in the middle of their IRL name. Do not change the name anywhere else in the biography.
  3. Player Subpages:
    • If the player has a match history page or stats pages, don't move them, that's really bad for the server. Instead make new pages at the new location & make the old pages redirect.
    • Change the argument of the match history and career stats pages to be the new name. Move, but otherwise do not edit yearly stats pages since these must match the scoreboard names.
    • If {{lowercase}} applies, add or remove this to each subpage.
  4. Concept:
    • If the player has a mh or stats page, they also have a concept. Go to Concept:playername/Games and move that to Concept:newplayername/Games LEAVING BEHIND A REDIRECT.
    • Add the new name as an additional argument of {{PlayerGamesConcept}}. Include all possible realistic capitalizations that the player might use.
  5. Double Redirects:

Operation Release[edit]
