Anyone has a good hint for me to divide S-Chinese from T-Chinese now?
On Old Cards until Mirrodin Set it was easy, but now especially on cards without Flavour Text its is very hary hard to impossible for me to see the difference.

Edit to myself: RTFM !!!

I'm not a global collector of anything (apart from Lightning Bolts, but I'm always too lazy to keep that updated, and I have all the big ones already), but I'd like to thank you anyway for your marvellous effort in collecting all those useful links and tools in one neat Topic !

Yes, when I decided to do a global collection, I was surprised at how little info there was on it. so I started asking questions in new threads. as the neat-freak that I am, I decided that to make it easy on myself, I would put this information all together, then decided to help others starting or working on their global collections by making this information it's own thread.

I will edit the initial post everytime something new can be added to the index, so please feel free to either PM me or reply to this topic with new and relevant info. of course, if you have something that is relevant only to the threads linked, it would make sense to reply to that thread instead.

Well done. When I started with my global Dragon Whelp collection ( ... 5234#65234) I had to to a lot of work, to gather all information. I think your topic can help a lot of collectors who will start their projects in the future.
One last thing: you are to late with your tipps ... my GC is finished;)

it's a nice global collection, but it has not been updated in almost 4 years. if Matt shows that the global collection is currently being worked on, then I will add it. but right now, as it appears inactive, I am holding off on any action.
