On the bright side, at least any given preset index page allows for Comments to be posted about the preset in question, so the preset index page does not strictly only serve just to give a link to the preset itself. Such Comments might be best reserved for discussing such issues as the quality of the preset graphics, normally, however.

I have noticed in the past that many preset index pages on CVP that exist already do not have a matching rules page. Many of the authors of such unmatched preset index pages would currently or possibly even forevermore be unavailable to make a matching game page (unless someone else authored one). In such cases, game rules are often, but not always, provided on the preset index pages. When the rules are not, I myself have always thought of going to the minor trouble of clicking on the preset link from the preset index page (to see if rules are offered with the preset itself), though some people may fear they are committing themselves to playing, maybe?! Anyway, almost always game rules have been on the preset in question, but I would otherwise have no idea what the rules are in cases when no such rules are provided on the preset itself.
