Notability Guidelines

We can't have a page for literally everyone who has ever played a game of Call of Duty -- or even for everyone who has played in a single prized tournament -- we simply cannot maintain that many pages, and most pages would never be visited. So in order to maintain quality within our wiki, we have a set of "notability guidelines" that we follow to determine whether a player (or team) gets a page.

Teams

A team must meet at least one of the following requirements to have an eSportspedia page created:
  • Participation in an international event including offline qualifiers.
  • Participation in a premier event and make it to Round of 16.
  • Top 4 placements in 2 Major events.
  • Top 2 placement in 4 Minor events.
  • At least 4 of the players already have an Esportspedia page, or at least 3 of the players are extremely noteworthy in their regions and already have Esportspedia pages.
  • Notability for another subjective reason (up to staff discretion)

Players

A player must meet at least one of the following requirements to have an Esportspedia page created:
  • Has played in at least one game in a premier event
  • Is on the starting roster for a CWL Pro Division team
  • Is an official substitute for a CWL Pro Division team
  • 4 top 16 or 1 top 8 placements in Major LAN events
  • 4 top 8 or 2 top 4 placements in Minor events
  • 2 top 2 placements in notable Online tournaments
  • Notability for another subjective reason (up to staff discretion)

Support Staff

We will make pages for a coach or manager who either:
  • Is the primary coach or manager for a premier team

These are just general guidelines, and exceptions for them do exist. If you're unsure if a page qualifies for creation, contact a staff member.

Conflicts of Interest

A conflict of interest arises when a user with an affiliation to the subject of a page that they are editing makes edits to the page that affect the page's neutrality. (For example, if a player incurs a fine, goes to their page, and deletes mention of the fine.)

What to do in the event of a conflict of interest

Generally, we do want players and organizations to be involved in the creation and maintenance of their pages -- that's how we get the best information! However, in order to ensure that neutrality is maintained, we request that you work with a staff member when editing your page. This doesn't mean you have to run every single edit by us, but any major changes should be made in consultation with staff.
Examples where you're welcome to make a change to your page on your own:
  • Editing a neutral piece of information in the trivia section, for example a favorite food.
  • Correcting a grammar mistake.
  • Correcting a factual mistake, such as the date you joined a team.
  • Adding a link to an interview.
Examples where you should work with a staff member:
  • Writing an explanation for the reason that you left a team.
  • As an organization, writing an explanation for the reason that you removed a player from your starting lineup.

Requesting deletion of information

Want information about yourself or your organization deleted? In general, we want to provide as much information as we can, but occasionally we will delete information for you if:
  • You are being harassed due to information about you on our site.
  • Our site is the primary location that people learned that information.
For example, if our wiki says that your favorite flavor of ice cream is vanilla, and people are harassing you for not liking chocolate after discovering this fact on the wiki, we will delete that piece of information.
However, if you were officially disqualified from a tournament, then we would consider the tournament the primary source of that information and keep it up on the wiki. If you have any questions, please reach out to our staff!
