--> Benjamin, would it be possible to perhaps add page numbers (and update the table of contents accordingly) to make it easier to find what you're looking for? This is a document I'd like to print out and keep handy, so an index with page number references would go a long way in swiftly locating a particular rule or ruling.

Alternatively, if this is not something many people will use, is there a way I can do this myself?

Thanks!

4.2 -- Quick Page Number Version. If printed out, I suppose you can manually write in page numbers on the Index. ;)

Excellent, thanks for responding so promptly, Benjamin, that's exactly what I'll do!

I'd like to add thanks and a big compliment to the authors and editors and to everyone being involved in compiling the Universal Rules Book! (For a while I had my own project of putting all rules together into a single document, German, but this became some kind of neverending story). I'm convinced it will prove itself most useful, every MECCG-player will greatly benefit from it.

While I appreciate and admire Ben's effort on this document, I feel it's necessary to point out this Universal Rules Document is not official, and some of the things inside should be taken with a grain of salt. Still a great tool for most players I'm sure, so cheers!

Er . . . no. As a member of the CoE, I was given the task to create a URD, did so, posted it in the Council Forum for their approval, and had it approved. It is as official as the CoE can make it.

However, we are also considering making the maintenance and upkeep of this document part of the official responsibilities of the NetRep, in which case, it will be your job to make sure it's official. :)

Really, so are you saying your document supersedes the ICE rulebooks, CRF and ICE/CoE Digests? I ask because there are some differences, and this document seems to have a very, well, "personal approach". I must have missed the discussion/vote/announcement from CoE regarding this, and find it strange CoE would not have contacted their rules guy beforehand. If such a decision exists, could you provide me with a link please? (I am able to read the CoE sections but did not find it.) Thanks.

I won't miss it -- in fact, I'll update this URD as soon as it comes out; even the rulings I don't agree with.

My goal was not to undermine the NetRep team. But I've known players to be turned off by rulings and explanations that are essentially dictatorial and appear on the surface to be inconsistent. My goal in commenting on the vagaries of cards and interpretations, not to mention reversals by the NetRep team, was to build authority for the NetRep team through trust rather than through -- for lack of a better term -- elitism. A person who sees open acknowledgment that rules are messy and that rulings can be overturned is more likely to be patient with a ruling from the NetRep team that he does not favor.

I do however, take exception to inconsistency in rulings, and I'm not really alone in this: Konrad Klar and I disagree on almost every rule question out there, but he also has commented on the inconsistency in the stated guiding principles of the NetRep's rulings vs. the principles that are actually at work.

I certainly wouldn't take over bus driving for a bus driver, but there is a point where I'll get out and walk if it's quicker than waiting for him to get back to driving the bus.

Now, again, if somebody finds an error, they're free to PM me or put it in this post. Konrad Klar did so; I updated it. This is a work that is and will be in progress. It's completely open to corrections from any and all sources -- there's even some .odt source in one of the posts so people can make their own versions, formatting them as they like. As I mentioned before, I'm heavily in favor of putting this under the domain of the NetRep, to update according to new digests, etc.

Use the word "endorsed" if you so desire; no member of the CoE objected to this being made publicly available, and the thread went to over 7 pages in the CoE Rules & Errata subforum. This is at least as official as, say, a potential NetRep ruling that equates "move to" with "at," which would absolutely flat-out contradict ICE rulebooks. ;)

And one final note. I didn't say the NetRep was required to diligently visit the forums; it's my opinion that the NetRep ought to -- especially when he mentions publishing a digest in January 2010 and it's now March 2011. :) I didn't contact anybody for help because the surest way to make sure a product is never released is to refer it to a committee -- working by myself, I got it done in about three weeks, and that includes my daughter being born at the same time and a good portion being typed while holding her. We've got a product on the table that can be improved as needed by not only the current NetRep (and I emphasize again -- feel free to point out the errors, I really won't mind), but by any member of the community that happens to think of something and point it out. I believe this to be a good thing.

Just three weeks sounds quite fast, thinking back when I was going through the earliest digests with Mark and Manuel, the process was really slow. But then again we checked and cross-referenced every single ruling that wasn't 100% clear, so that took most of the time. If I do get full editing rights as you mentioned in another thread, there will be changes, maybe some big ones (less bulletins, more text; no editorials (sorry); etc.), but I'm sure you and everyone else would be happy with the end product. And naturally I'd keep the file updated after finishing the initial work. :)

That was three solid weeks, by the way; often three-four hours/night.
