My first batch of suggested edits to WICA ...
_____
http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Inns_and_Cathedrals
(formatting) existing text: "CAUTION: During final scoring, incomplete cities with a cathedral in them do not score any points."
suggested edit - bold the final "s"
_____
http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Princess_and_The_Dragon
(error ?) existing text: "Place the dragon on the newly placed Volcano tile. Then it is the next player's turn."
suggested edit - delete the second sentence

(typo) existing text: "Portal does no affect scoring."
suggested edit - the third word should be "not"
_____
http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Under_the_Big_Top
(clarification) existing text: " At the end of the game, ringmasters in fields or on incomplete features score ringmaster points."
suggested edit - continue the sentence, "... score ringmaster points (in addition to points for the incomplete road, city or monastery or the field which he is in.)" - this might just be me (I've never played the expansion) and I appreciate that this is what is implied by the existing text, but I think it might be useful to explicitly spell it out.

Hi cicerunner,

I would like to discuss this one. This sentence is present in the German rules as well. The issue here for me is the following:
- You place the volcano tile
- You may not place a meeple on the volcano tile but you can move the fairy
- You may not do much but the placement of the volcano tile may trigger the scoring of one or more features so "Then it is the next player's turn." will only make sense after scoring in this case.

Therefore, what was the intention of this sentence?

The German version is:

Game end
At the end of the game, you get these extra points for your ringmaster in the same way - both when the ringmaster is lying on the field as a farmer, and when he is standing on an unfinished building.

We can add the clarification in the main text or as a footnote. What do you think of simple adding "also"?

"At the end of the game, ringmasters in fields or on incomplete features also score ringmaster points."

I think this way the usual scoring is assumed too.

Regarding the ringmaster ...

My first response was to welcome your more concise version - it definitely provides the nudge to score the ringmaster as a normal meeple too at the end of the game. I still really like your version, but I'm going to offer this, subtly more explicit, version.

"At the end of the game, ringmasters score fields or incomplete features as normal meeples and also score ringmaster points."

I think your version is absolutely fine. And I emphasise again that I've not actually played the expansion and suspect that most people reading the WikiCarpedia will be doing so more naturally than I am now. Hence they may well have fully internalised that 'ringmasters are normal meeples too' when reading this section. I defer to you on which version is the best fit.

Meepledrone:
I updated the paragraph with the longer version. Readers should be happier since the paragraph is quite direct..
