Who can contribute to Sportskeeda Wiki?

Although you don’t require to register to contribute, we’d recommend you create an account (it takes less than 10 seconds) to avail editing features open to only registered users (members).


How to Start Editing?


Editing a Wiki page on Sportskeeda is very easy:

  1. It’s as simple as clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page.
  2. Using our handy editor, you can quickly add new information and media, correct typos and errors, add hyperlinks or update the formatting.
  3. You may click the "Publish" button once you’re done making your changes to update the page

Simple as that!


Note that you’ll find the Edit button on all pages except the Wiki’s Main (Home) page. This is because the Main page is not kept editable for now.


Editing Philosophy


The number one rule of wiki editing is to be bold. Go ahead—make changes. Other people can correct any mistakes you make, so have confidence, and give it a try!


An edit can contribute whole new paragraphs or pages of information, or it can be as simple as fixing a typo or a spelling mistake. In general, try to add or edit text so that it is clear and concise. Most importantly, make sure you are always aiming to do something which improves the overall contents of the wiki page.


Using the Editor


Adding Images


This functionality is only available to registered, logged-in users.


Images help provide additional details and illustrate the subject, thereby improving the overall quality of a Wiki page. After all, a picture speaks a thousand words! Adding images also helps improve a wiki's search engine ranking.

Note that only logged-in users can add images to a page. This is to reduce spam by adding accountability to actions.

Images can be added by clicking the Add Image icon located on the top bar shown below


Images can be added in two ways:

  • Using Getty Images: You can search for a string (it can be anything - topic, player, event, etc.) and upload from the displayed options.

Note that this option is helpful in searching for sports-related images. However, this might not come in very handy for other non-sports topics.

  • Using the “Upload Image” option:


Here you can enter the image URL or upload a file from your local system. It is a good practice to provide a proper source or attribution, a caption, and an alt text that helps describe the uploaded image. However, this is not mandatory.


Once selected, click Upload and then Publish the page to commit your changes.

You can also edit/add captions and resize images already present on the page by clicking on them. Note that images can only be added using the desktop editor.

Please refrain from uploading any copyrighted material. See guidelines
