I am sorry to bother you about this, but I am somewhat of a perfectionist and I noticed some small mistakes, mostly grammar/spelling, stuff like "Swift" instead of "Switch" and "example" instead of "exception". Also, I think you forgot about "While" I use that word on a lot of my cards, for example: "While this card is in your Graveyard, you take no effect damage".

 

Other than that, really good guide it hepled me a lot. I got 7/10 on the quiz, it was quite tricky =P

I'll try to hunt those down soon and fix them, it's pretty hard to make this a perfect guide with how complex the writing system is as well. I will add while too soon, that's a pretty common word, not sure why I forgot about it.

The Word List, Explanations and Usage List has now been fully updated with every word, there may be a few words I put in when I notice them missing, but for now, it should be pretty complete.

Did a few changes regarding Pseudo Trap monsters in the "Trap monsters and Pseudo-Trap monsters" section, as they were a bit outdated.

Read your guide when I first joined; It was a great help!

Not sure if it's a problem or if it should be there, because of its minisculeness, but one of the problems I had when making cards was trying to figure out which of these effects is right (colon/semicolon):
Once per turn: You can draw 1 card.
Once per turn; You can draw 1 card.

IIRC it's the first one, but I can't see it in the Colon/Semicolon section. Do you think that's an issue worth addressing?

Hm, I see now that I should probably have made things clearer in that section, I will be updating that soon. To answer your question, it's the first one, as there is no cost and it doesn't target, so you only put a colon, no semi-colon.

 

EDIT:

Updated the Updated 5: Colon and Semi-Colon Integration and When/If with more information.

I haven't been here in a while, but I do have an effect that is causing me some ire due it possibly being too redundant.

 

Original wording: Once per turn: You can change every monster your opponent controls to face-up Attack Position; negate their effects, then this card gains 200 ATK for every monster your opponent controls and can attack every monster your opponent controls once each.

 

My idea for better wording: Once per turn: You can change every monster your opponent controls to face-up Attack Position; negate their effects, then this card gains 200 ATK for every monster your opponent controls and can attack them once each.

 

You probably get the gist of what it does.

Before I start, you wording is using colons and semi-colon wrong, at least I very much doubt your intention is to change them as a cost. Effects always go after the colon or semi-colon, if you have no cost, which it doesn't look like, you only use a colon. That being said, here's the wording I would use:

 

"Once per turn: You can change all monsters your opponent control to Attack Position, also negate their effects, then this card gains 200 ATK for each monster your opponent controls and it can attack them all, once each."

I have said that this isn't a design tutorial thread, but I must say that it's not a good idea to make effects act as costs like that, it's really cheap, and it's one of the reasons why Kaiju are designed the way they are, because your opponent never gets a chance to protect themselves against the Tribute, or in your case the change to Attack Position, so they put a condition on them and made sure they had the ability to use your counters as well.

New section added called "34: Notice about mandatory effects" and added the words "battle", "hand size limit" as well as all the Phases to the "Word List, Explanations and Usage List" which I had strangely forgot about.

A small update, instead of "your opponent's side of the field" you just says "your opponent's field" instead, and instead of "either side of the field" you say "the field" instead. I also assume there's "your field" and "each field" as well, but in case they are different, let me know.

 

Examples of cards that have changed this are Number 106: Giant Hand, Chimeratech Fortress Dragon and Flying "C":

 

During either player's turn, when a monster effect is activated on your opponent's field (except during the Damage Step): You can detach 2 Xyz Materials from this card, then target 1 Effect Monster your opponent controls; while this card is face-up on the field, that Effect Monster's effects are negated, also it cannot change its battle position.

 

Must first be Special Summoned (from your Extra Deck) by sending the above cards from either field to the Graveyard. (You do not use "Polymerization".)

 

When your opponent Normal or Special Summons a monster(s), except during the Damage Step: You can Special Summon this card from your hand to the opponent's field in Defense Position.

Another small little change, Beatrice, Lady of the Eternal seems to change how monsters with alternate Summon methods are Summoned, now it's on the same line as its regular method, and also it has a slash before its other method. Here's the before and after:
 

2 Level 6 monsters
You can also Xyz Summon this card by sending 1 "Burning Abyss" monster from your hand to the Graveyard, then using 1 "Dante" monster you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.)

 

2 Level 6 monsters / You can also Xyz Summon this card by sending 1 "Burning Abyss" monster from your hand to the Graveyard, then using 1 "Dante" monster you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.)

How do you tell that this has to do with alternate Summoning methods at all? And not a method for conserving space?

 

It's not that the alternate Summoning method is on the same line as the regular methods. The regular method is in the same paragraph as the rest of the card text. There is no line break after the alternate Summoning method, nor is it the same font size as the regular method. Also, a slash flanked by spaces (" / ") is generally indicative of a line break.

 

Granted, the above doesn't mean much. But, I think it's too early to make this connection you have made, considering we have no other examples. Unless you have a better reason that you haven't shared?

Could be to converse space too, would explain why other cards from the same set don't also have that for the conditions too. I don't know why they wouldn't use it for all the cards though, since it is a way to safe space, they typically avoid making distinctions like that. If a change doesn't actually happen for real, I'll of course inform about that, for now I won't fault people who don't use this.

When do you capitalize "OR" as displayed in cards such as "Evolzar Laggia" or "Solemn Warning"

You no longer capitalise "or" in these cases. See newer cards like Majespecter Tempest or Solemn Strike.

 

The capitalised "OR" can appear in card texts such as those of Union monsters.

It's been quite a while since the last update, but here's something important for people who work with Union monsters because it changes quite a lot on them. I have added a new section added called "34: Union monster important update".

 

I of course am also going to update with Link Monsters when they come to the TCG and get proper PSCT, as right now it's a lot of guesswork on how they are suppose to be worded. Same goes for the whole Main Monster Zone and Extra Monster Zone, and I might even need to update a bit on Pendulum Monsters, since their zone is now works differently as well, but I haven't looked into that yet.
