Who We Are

Whom should I talk to about...?

Your best bet will usually be to tweet at us, we usually reply pretty quickly to tweets. However, it's possible that sometimes you can get a quicker response by contacting one of the staff members directly.

Site Content

Why isn't there a page about my favorite team/player/personality?

There could be a couple reasons:
  • This person or team does not meet our notability guidelines. In this case, we won't create a page for them unless they meet those guidelines in the future.
  • We don't have enough information about the team or person to make a page for them. If you have info about the team or player, you can make the page yourself! Or, if you know the person or someone on the team, have them contact us and we can give them a survey to fill out; we'll make a page based off that info.
  • We overlooked making a page for them. Sorry! If you think this is the case, let us know. Or, you could make it yourself!

This page isn't up-to-date or isn't well-written or is wrong or has another problem. What do I do?

Again, you can always contact us about a page that needs an edit by tweeting at us. Or you can update the page yourself! Some pages, like tournament scoreboards or picks and bans, might be a bit confusing to edit. If you're unsure what to do, let us know that you were interested in editing a page but couldn't figure out how to. We're in the process of creating several tutorials to help you out, so we'll try to add one for whatever it is that you couldn't figure out.


I can't edit! What's going on??

First of all, note that unless you are specifically granted Editor permissions, all of your edits will need to be accepted by a staff member before they go live. This is to reduce spam / vandalism. So if you are able to edit a page and then save it, it's probably working exactly as intended -- just check back in a bit to see if your edit was accepted.
If you can't even click the "Edit" button, make sure you're logged in. It's also possible (but unlikely) that your IP address has been banned from making edits if someone at your IP was repeatedly making malicious edits. If you suspect this might be the case, please contact us!

I edited the page. Why isn't it showing up?

As a vandalism counter-measure, we have an approval system for page edits. When you edit a page, you can see the changes yourself, but for your edit to go live for everyone, it must be accepted by a staff member. Once it's accepted, everyone will be able to see it.

Why wasn't my edit accepted?

First, make sure your edit was actually correct. Maybe you had a typo? If your edit was definitely correct, try resubmitting with an explanation of what you were changing and why in the summary. If you've done that and you've waited at least 24 hours and it's still not accepted, then please contact us. Include your account name and a link to the page you were attempting to edit.

There's a change I need to make, but I can't figure out how. What do I do?

Check out our page on editing here. There are a lot of MediaWiki tutorials available, and our staff are always willing to help out!
If you really can't figure it out, you can either contact us or add an ambox to the page. Adding amboxes is really easy -- all you have to do is type {{cleanup}} or the syntax corresponding to the appropriate ambox at the top of the page. (Click Edit With Form and then type the ambox syntax at the top of the text box at the bottom of the form page.)

I added a link to an external page, but it's not working. How come?

Did you add "http://" at the beginning? If not, the link won't work. You can also refer to our tutorial.

We are currently performing extensive maintenance to this wiki and as a result there will likely be errors. Please be patient while we work to fix all problems.
