Regarding to the crop circles:

Each must decide between option a and b.
A) they can place a meeple from their supply to an already placed meeple and nowhere else
Or
B) remove a meeple

So from my point of view the translation make Sense, but I’m not a native speaker and understand sometimes not the nuances

It is a tiny change but what HiG did in the English rules was this:

Each must decide between option a and b.
A) they can place a meeple from their supply to an already placed meeple and nowhere else
Or
B) remove a meeple

So the can (or may) par of option A) was removed so they told players: you must add a meeple or remove a meeple. This was in contrast with the German rules: you may add meeple or you must remove a meeple.
That doesn't seem to make sense to me.

The point of the expansion was surely that it was a little bitter sweet. Sometimes you could win a feature with an extra meeple and sometimes you could rescue a meeple from a dead feature BUT if these positives were not possible you would have to waste a meeple by adding one to a feature pointlessly or remove a meeple from a good feature you were likely to score.  Therefore the rule only really make sense if it is "must A or B."

You can see here that the rules were like that in C1 (you may place a meeple or you must remove a meeple):

http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Crop_Circles_(1st_edition)#Playing_the_Game

The wording comes from the CAR, that matches the German rules for C1 and C2 as well.

Don't ask me why but the C2 rules in English failed to reflect the original meaning correctly:
* The Big Box 6 rules in English by ZMG mistranslated the wording and changed the meaning to must/must.
* The C2 Halflings rules by HiG mistranslated the wording again and changed the meaning to must/must

So in the original rules you must choose between two options:
* A) Placing a meeple optionally:
   - Each player places a meeple...
   - or does nothing
* B) Removing a meeple mandatorily:
   - Each player must remove a meeple

This means option A) allows each player to decide what to do: if placing a meeple does not help or it is preferable to save the meeple for later, it is possible to skip the action. Option B) is mandatory and everyone is forced to do it unless the player has no meeples on the feature type required by the action.

I ordered this a while ago, but unfortunately I just received this email from cundco:

Hello,

we are very sorry, but the current information from the mail service says, that due to the Corona crises, no goods will be delivered in the moment to Australia as usual.

The dispatch of goods and parcel shipments to Australia will no longer be offered until further notice

We have tried to send your order #[removed], but it returned to us today. So we will keep your order until the situation will go back to normal. So sorry for that. Please inform you by web about that situation. Thank you!

Still, if this is the worst that happens I'm doing pretty well I guess...

Pheeew! I got my order with C2 Halflings last Monday... However HiG got confused and left some items out by mistake. I wrote to them the same day, sending even pictures, but no answer yet.  :-[

They've been pretty good about sending replacements for damaged items on a few occasions for me; I'm sure they'll fix the error!  :black1-meeple:
