Over the last two weeks I have noticed a striking problem with the wiki: Very few edits are actually adding content to the Strategy section of Liquipedia. And yet, the number of "[H] Why didn't I Win?" threads continue to rise. Why is this? Its obvious that people are playing more, gearing up for SC2 by stumbling upon TL and looking for help. The reason that we all wanted to be a part of this wiki is that we wanted to make people better at Starcraft, to breathe new life into the foreign community. We invite you, once again to meet us half way.
Don't feel like you have anything to contribute to the wiki strat section? Guess again. Let me tell you about my first contribution to the wiki way back in January when I joined up. For four months I had been behind a firewall at school so throttled that I couldn't play SC online and couldn't even watch youtube videos. All I had were some FBH games from proleague over the summer and games against the computer. And so I sat there with a journal and I thought about it. And I'm really happy about what I came up with it.
Every one of you knows something unique about playing SC. That's the kind of game it is. I play SC and follow Proleague because the game because it has infinite potential for new play, and I really think that Liquipedia is the catalyst for the creation of that content. I invite you to be part of The Renaissance of SC that we have the potential to create here. I don't know about you but that idea is the most exciting thing I have ever experienced in my gaming career.
So how are you going to do it? First off, read about your best matchup. See what people are saying about what you do best and see what you have to say to them. Don't feel like you are a good writer? Stay tuned for the next couple of days, we are coming up with a system so you can write what you know write onto the talk pages and someone else will write it up for you.
And what about the Strategy Forum? A lot of the talk I hear is that the strat forum is obsolete. I disagree. I think the strat forum is where we are going to talk about the new strategies that we come up with once we advance the wiki far enough. Until then, sure keep making threads asking for people to look at your replays. But, I do challenge you, that every time you ask for help in the Strat thread to post something that does work for you, to get the ball rolling. You all having something that you know about SC, so share it with the community.
