Main page structure

My high level suggestion for C1/C2 is groping:

  • Base game (by HiG)
  • Major Expansions (by HiG)
  • Minor Expansions (by HiG)
  • Minor expansions by others (Spiel Doch, Spiel Box and other events,...)

Don't see any problem either in grouping spin-offs in separate pages following the idea of Winter Edition.

Being under completion of Sinscerly :)

My thoughts about the Mainpage being a Hub to deliver to all the different subpages. So main page would look the following Main Page:

 > Carcassonne C2
 > Carcassonne C1
 > Carcassonne Spin-offs
 > other relevant information and pages. 

So on the Carcassonne C2 page you can find anything related to C2. with the structure that is now on the main page. Same for C1 Then we get to Spin-offs also as C2 and C1 but then winter has it's own subpage where all the mini's and base game for winter are.

What is the point about this. Well it would be more clicking instead of scrolling, on mobile then. Also it could be maybe better visible.

Otherwise I would suggest:

Main page

C2
> base
> > abt
> > river
> expansions
> > exp 1
> > etc
C1
> base
> expansions
> > exp 1
> > etc
Spin-offs
> Winter
> > Base Game
> > Gingerbread Man
> > Corn Circles ( I still don't get it, normal one are Crop Circles, right? and winter is called Corn Circles???....)
> other Spin-offs

To put all expansions together, but don't know if that's good. I think the first suggestion is more clearer.

Expansion naming

I've come across several discrepancies in the text that I would like to discuss in order to see if we agree any action upon them. Some may come from the source material (the CAR mainly). This entry is about Expansion naming.

For some expansions we are using names that differ from the "official" ones used by the English publishers. We have some differences in capitalization, the use of And vs. &, and other cases. I included some examples comparing with ZMG:

Oficial Name Wikicarpedia name
Inns & Cathedrals Inns and Cathedrals
Traders & Builders Traders and Builders
The Princess & The Dragon The Princess and the Dragon
Abbey & Mayor Abbey and the Mayor
Count, King & Robber Count, King and Robber
Under The Big Top Under the Big Top
The Flying Machines The Flier (Flying Machines)
The Messengers Messages, The (Dispatches)
The Gold Mines The Goldmines
Mage & Witch Mage and Witch
The Crop Circles Crop Circles

Suggestion:

  • Using the publisher-given name and stick to it when available.
  • Verify if some other name has to be updated, checking references to translations for German.

  • Sure, better to correct sooner than later. Are you willing to do this? I guess to have as little mess as possible, it would be best to move them without redirection. --MajFrost (talk) 10:23, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Problem with using & in names is that adress will look like crap:

Cross-references to Expansions/Base game

I've come across several discrepancies in the text that I would like to discuss in order to see if we agree any action upon them. This entry is about cross-references between Expansions.

The CAR original text shows cross-refereces to Expansions in italics generally in the text but not always in footnotes.

Suggestion:

  • Use a link in bold to provide a navigable cross-reference that stands out from the text.

Example:

 Lorem ipsum '''[[The Expansion|The Expansion]]''' blah blah blah

Lorem ipsum The Expansion blah blah blah

  • I do not get the point of this? So you just want it to stand out from text? Why?

Self-references to a Expansions/Base game

I've come across several discrepancies in the text that I would like to discuss in order to see if we agree any action upon them. This entry is about self-references in a page.

The CAR original text shows self-refereces to Expansions capitalized.

Suggestion:

  • Use a link in bold to provide a navigable cross-reference that stands out from the text. In case of transcluded page, it MediaWiki will render a link in bold, otherwise name in bold as is.

Example:

 Lorem ipsum '''[[Link to Self|Link to Self]]''' blah blah blah

Lorem ipsum Link to Self blah blah blah

  • What is the point of selfreferencing? --MajFrost (talk) 10:17, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
