Hi! I saw a couple of your new trap setup guides... I found hunting as an Apprentice in the Meadow that White Cheddar is pretty effective there (with Target base of course). I guess you don't include it because Novices can't get it yet, but it's a valid option for Apprentices. -- Camomiletea 15:15, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

I included a mention about white cheddar in the harbour trap setup guide. I can add this to the Meadow as well. I was trying to keep the page simple for the novice - but I think that you are right that many apprentices like to try out White Cheddar in the meadow so it is worth a mention. I was going to treat it as a note since otherwise you have to get into the detail of Profit per hunt (White Cheddar doesn't help) or Profit per cheese (White Cheddar helps a lot).

Commonly Asked Questions

Hey, looked at your commonly asked questions thing and I tihnk it's really useful, perhaps it could be implemented into the FAQ page? Thomas5436 16:59, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

It needs some work - I have to seperate my opinions against content that is up to the MouseHunt wiki standards. I have been monitoring the forums to get a sense of the common questions. I think that the current FAQ is a bit of a mess. Now that I am done with Trap Setup options - I might move on to this. -- Ralphminer 17:25, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Do you mind if I add/edit it? Thomas5436 21:43, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Go ahead and add questions, answers and edits. I think that one of the goals should be to keep this shorter than the existing FAQ. One of the issues that I am struggling with is that this article is half way wanting to be a FAQ and half way wants to be walk through using the socratic method. One of my goals with the FAQ is not just provide answers (which I have done in a lot of cases) but explain the reasoning so that the interested person can draw their own conclusions. The best questions all have the answer "It Depends" in which case I can see this being a Table of Contents to a series of articles like DeathBolt or ForceField Trap. I like the current organization of questions by level - since I think that as a new player the current FAQ is confusing because it throws a lot of concepts at you way before you need to know about them.
