And I'm not sure exactly what the 'table' you are talking about is

When I say tables, I am referring to HTML tables. Speaking of which, it wouldn't hurt to get to know the basics of HTML, if you haven't done so already.

The editor also allows you to insert tables without needing to write HTML.

But I don't know how to apply interactive diagram inside the page.

All you need to do is paste the diagram definition into the page. The Interactive Diagram script doesn't care where you put it - the result is the same. Depending on whether there are multiple diagrams on the page, you may need to set the satellite parameter (satellite=xxx) within the definition to get it to work.

IMPORTANT: When inserting or editing an interactive diagram, make sure you keep the editor in HTML format, otherwise the editor will mess up the definition!

You have some great ideas. However, you seem to have some difficulty when trying to put those ideas in words. Thankfully I'm here, and I have plenty of tips from personal experience with using the site.

Here's some of those tips to get you started.

  • Put important statements (such as "All rules are identical to standard Chess except for the following") at the top of the section they go in. This makes reading about the differences more intuitive, as the top of the section is the first thing the reader will see. The same goes for the page in general.
  • Put the Interactive Diagram for the game in the Setup section along with the picture, preferably above the picture. This way the reader can dive right in without having to scroll down to the comments section. This helps the reader understand your game more quickly.
  • Using tables in the Pieces section works wonders for helping the reader to understand your game better, and has the added benefit of making the Pieces section look nicer in general.
  • Make sure to respond to comments that editors make in a timely fashion. This speeds up the publishing process
  • Be patient. There are only a handful editors on the site, and only some of them will be processing submissions at any given time, so it may take a while to get your submissions published, even if you do everything right the first time. Case in point, the GC preset pages for Suzumu Shogi and Mitsugumi Shogi have been approved, but the corresponding Rules pages have not (which I find a bit odd, but I digress).
    • You can leave a comment on this page if you think they missed your submission, but do this sparingly.
  • Don't be afraid to ask for help! There are plently of contributors and editors on the site who are more than willing to help you if you just ask them.
