Hi all,

I'm testing a new concept for some C2 pages on WICA with the idea so simplify the reading of pages, grouping related information together in an organized way and providing better traceability of the clarifications.

This update is based on the following principles:
* Clarifications to the main text should address issues related to the rules and should avoid mixing interactions with any expansions, unless necessary. So, these clarification related to interactions would be included in a separate section and organized by expansion.
* Clarifications to the main text are grouped in note boxes close to the text sections they refer to. This way we try to avoid scrolling all the way down to the end of the page, since you can find the clarification nearby and make the reading experience more fluid.
* Discrepancies between rules versions (for example, standalone version vs. Big Box 6 version) are grouped in an additional section.
* Discrepancies related to translations by publishers are kept as end footnotes, since they are language-dependent and do not affect all languages
* All clarifications are tagged with a unique identifier for WICA and keeps track to the source CAR footnote, if any. These identifiers are shown as a link in brackets that can be copied and pasted anywhere so link back to the clarification. Currently, the addition of a new clarification may affect the numbering of the exiting clarifications on a page and therefore the links pointing back to them.

Here you are a couple of WIP examples:
* The C2 Base game (new approach): http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Base_Game_-_Test_Inline
* The C2 Messages (new approach): http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/New_Messages_-_Test

The original pages are next so you can compare:
* The C2 base game (current version): http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Base_game
* The C2 Messages (current version): http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Messages

As you can see, the base game now includes a number of clarification addressing concepts modified or expanded by later expansions so you may take them into account as required. The point here is that the original wording is limited to the scenarios found in the base game, so concepts like "majority in a feature" are explained in a simplified way that may apply to the base game but falls short when adding the large meeple or a mayor. You get the idea.

All your comments are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Well Carcassonne is very simple game with simple rules and simple mechanism.
On testing page for Basic Game, I doesn't look like simple game ;-)
Approach on Messages is fine, this expansion is usualy bought by experienced players, so new page looks me more informative.

Would you then prefer to move sections 4.9 Interactions with expansions to a separate page targeted at advanced players? What about section 4.8 Rules differences with Big Box 6?

3. Yes, that's the arrangement that was already planned for most.
3. -- We have created hub sections for spin offs where there are expansions for. So example the winter edition. As hill and dale has no expansions we had thought to add no hub behind it. Just some thinkings. ;)
