Article criteria[edit]

Specific criteria for editing eSports articles still need to be decided on. However, here are some guidelines in the meantime:

  • Be sure to always write from a neutral point of view. Be aware of your own biases. For example, it can be easy to write praisingly about your favorite player. Instead, write objectively about the player's notable accomplishments.
  • Make notability apparent. Avoid trivial facts and instead focus on important achievements. For example, if a player has won an international tournament, their article definitely should mention it.
  • Search for good sources and interesting facts. The topic of eSports is covered very well on the web, so we should take advantage of this.
  • Titles of articles about professional gamers should be whatever is the individual is most commonly referred to in reliable sources. Typically, but not always, this is the player's gamertag or in-game name as opposed to their legal or birth name.

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Article requests : notability guidelines for articles
  • Cleanup : Cleanup the article for SK Gaming, a top ranked Counter-Strike team from Germany.
  • Copyedit : Electronic Sports League
  • NPOV : Ensure that pages on professional gamers are written from a neutral point of view, even if they're your favorite gamer!
  • Stubs : Most articles in the scope of our project are start-class or stub-class; these should be brought up to C-class if possible.
  • Update : various older team, league, and player pages
  • Other : Discuss and create criteria for good articles specific to the scope of this task force; add the eSports template to pages within the scope of this task force.
Organizational tasks
  • Decide whether articles on eSports games are within the scope of this task force. (Done)
  • If it is decided we should, we will also need to decide which games are within the task force's scope; that is, how to define a game as an eSports game.
  • Decide on notability guidelines for professional players sometime in the future. Currently there is some concensus that there should not specifically an WP:SNG guidelines per this discussion
  • Decide how to tables like rosters and tournament results listings
  • Decide what types of tournaments are appropriate for listing
  • Make navboxes look better
  • Decide which former players to list
  • Create and maintain archive of eSports-related deletion discussions
  • Maybe standardize date format. current there are two formats being used: 2016-09-06 (Korean dates), Aug 2016 (western)
