We have for years heard that people want there to be a wiki like Liquipedia for Game X, Y, and, let's not forget, Z. In order to help make these wishes a reality, we've recently started Liquipedia Alpha, a program to let us more easily gauge the interest within different gaming communities to help create an esports oriented wiki for their scene.
We first did this when people in the Warcraft III community reached out on reddit, which was followed by WC3 recruitment thread #1 and WC3 recruitment thread #2.
This was a great opportunity for us, as we had internally been talking about wanting to do something similar - where we can provide our know-how and back-end to a new community that wants to build a wiki, but might not have the experience to maintain a site or deal with some of the more perplexing parts of the MediaWiki code. We now have a functional Warcraft 3 Alpha Wiki!
So how does the process start?
Firstly, express your interest in contributing to a particular Alpha wiki by filling out this form (you can fill out this form multiple times if you're interested in helping with more than one game.)
Secondly, post in this thread - if you have questions, we’ll be happy to answer. Additionally, give us a sense of where your interests in the projects lie - creating/updating player and team pages? Adding information from past tournaments? Handle ongoing/future tournaments? Writing game guides? There is a ton to do, and every bit helps! If you feel especially passionate, come join us on our IRC channel
Thirdly, spread the word about this and your interest in it. Getting the word out there to lots of people or to people who have the time and interest in helping out is also beneficial regardless if you can commit any time to the project yourself or not.
Lastly, once we have enough people interested in working on a wiki, we will reach out to them and set up the wiki. This is when the real fun begins!
We were even interviewed about this program.
