Talk:Rules of Ultimate - 10th edition

From Ultipedia

Why not include all the subsections in the same article? I believe it would be easier to browse. Themindset 16:59, 9 August 2006 (MDT)

One of my hopes is that rule discussion and related FAQs are archived on Ultipedia. I'm not sure of the best format to facilitate linking and discussion. Although not Wikipedia style, my initial structure was meant to faciliate related FAQs at the bottom of the article or in the Talk pages. (Though my impression is that the existence of the 'talk' pages is unknown to most mediawiki neophytes.) I suppose there could be a set of related "FAQ & interpretations" pages linked for each section ? I tend to agree with you that a single, canonical rules page would make a lot of sense. Hmm.- Ivar 23:01, 10 August 2006 (MDT)
Well, that rationale definitely explains why you layed it out like that. But we could use the talk page for all rule questions and debates, especially since this won't be a high traffic site. Also, putting a note right at the top of the article in bold mentioning and linking the talk page and how to use it would be good. When I have some time I will make these changes.

Has permission been secured from the UPA to post the 10th edition rules here? When we originally set up our website, OCUA needed permission from the UPA to republish. --dave0 20:47, 18 September 2006 (MDT)

I asked for permission via email on July 9th, 2006 but never received a reply. I've since made some contacts at the UPA and have resent my request. An official approval (or denial) should be forthcoming. Ivar 07:49, 19 September 2006 (MDT)
Ok, thanks! --dave0 09:09, 19 September 2006 (MDT)

One big thing missing from the rules is section numbering that matches the official 10th ed, both in the section titles, and in the ToC. Is there a standard mediawiki way to use roman numerals for this? --dave0 04:59, 19 September 2006 (MDT)

Nope, roman numerals don't exist in the wiki markup language. It's possible to add them, but it would require a couple hours of PHP hacking from someone familiar with mediawiki extensions. oops.. as I was writing this to find docs on extending mediawiki I found a roma numeral extension at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/RomanNumerals .. I'll put that on the sysop TODO list. Ivar 07:49, 19 September 2006 (MDT)

It occurred to me that a wiki is precisely the wrong sort of system for the current set of rules. Once they're in and formatted appropriately, we really don't want people making changes to them -- the rules should stay exactly as the UPA or WFDF published them to avoid confusion or misunderstanding. So... once we've got the numbering and sections fixed, should we protect the page against future edits? --dave0 09:09, 19 September 2006 (MDT)
