Maybe I'm not looking in the right place, but I don't think I see a link for card setup, such as where monster cards and traps/spells are located. Is there no page on that? Lying 06:29, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Look under the "Playing Field Zones" section. --Bluedog (Talk) 06:31, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Flip should not listed underneath Normal (which is underneath "Summoning mechanics", which is underneath "Intermediate"). It deserves a category of its own, since it doesn't count as a Normal Summon or Set. I don't want to mess around with the template personally. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 08:16, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Basic, intermediate, advanced and expert[edit]

The categorisation into "basic", "intermediate", "advanced" and "expert" seems arbitrary and even nonsensical in places.

There's a lot of other stuff which seems out of place. Should we just drop the column that divides them into "basic", "intermediate", "advanced" and "expert" or does someone want to chance a better arangement? -- Deltaneos (talk) 18:17, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

I've also always been bugged by this. I have a feeling the categorization originally came from some official source or another, though if so, I rather doubt it actually divided the game mechanics so thoroughly. Personally, I'd rather see the categorization gone and the template reorganized some; I think trying to maintain the distinction while making it less arbitrary as to what goes where is too much effort for too little gain. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 20:36, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
Most likely the rulebook that came with the original Starter Decks. I do recall them having sections called all four of those things. Whether or not newer rulebooks that include Synchros and Xyzs organize it the same way I do not know. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 22:22, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

So I've been thinking about this for a few days, and I think I've got a possible top-level organization for a rewrite: card layout, card types, field layout/areas/etc., turn layout, battle/effect stuff, other stuff. Thoughts/suggestions/rebuttals? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:39, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

The template needs some sort of fixing, for sure. Whatever you have planned, I'm sure it's better than what we have now. So go for it. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 13:18, March 13, 2013 (UTC)
