```Hi Trond,

Thanks for pointing that out - I have already made updates to a draft version that establishes more consistency in usage of examples throughout the document.

Re: your examples, the soccer example is correct, but it looks like we're not aligned on what consists of 'duration' vs 'quantity' in the x-games example.  See my updated version below and notes explaining my reasoning.  Let me know if that clears it up.

"'Jamie did a 20 feet air at the X Games Huston in 2014 in the Highest air competition, in the first run..."

'Jamie' - the subject (object) of the measurement
'2014 Houston X-Games, Run 1' - the duration of the measurement **
'20 feet' - the quantity that was measured
'20' - the numerical value in the quantity
'feet' - the unit of measurement in the quantity

** This is a bit confusing due to the complexity of modeling event series and super/sub events.   Extrapolating on your example, let's further assume that :

a.  It was during the first run of the 'Men's Super-Bike Freestyle Event' in which Jamie achieved 20 feet of air.
b. The Men's Super-Bike Freestyle Event is composed of three (3) runs, scored independently
c.  The Men's Super-Bike Freestyle Event is one of many other events that take place during the 2014 X-Games Competition in Houston, TX

What we have is three distinct yet related Event instances.  It is the first event (a) - the first run - which defines the duration of the measurement.

Does that clear things up?

Dear Jason,

Great work. And a valuable contribution.
Looks good. Just one suggestion:
In the document you are using the imaginable player John, but in the examples below there are no references to this example. I am suggesting you add how you use schema.org to mark up / design what you have defined in the example.
Again: Just a suggestion, not a demand.

The information I am referring to is on page 1 and at the top of page 2.

Just to test your example with another sport:
I want to describe that 'Jamie did a 20 feet air at the X Games Huston in 2014 in the Highest air competition, in the first run..."
Jamie - Subject of the measurement
X Games Huston 2014, highest air competition - is the duration
1 run - the quantity that was measured
20 - is the number in that quantity
Feet -is the unit in that quantity

Also testing with soccer:
Description to be tested: 'John has received two yellow cards during the Norwegian Elite series'
John - Subject of the measurement
Norwegian Elite series - the duration
2 Yellow cards - is the quantity that was measured
2 - is the number in that quantity
Yellow cards - is the unit in that quantity...

Are both these examples correct, or did I miss something?

(I have not marked this up with JSON as I have not done any real schema.org markup like that (not completed schema.org-for-dummies-class.... ;) ))

Trond

All,

I have published a new draft (1.1) of this proposal that incorporates updates based on community feedback thus far.  Please take a look and let me know how you like the updates.

Cheers,

- Jason

Hi Simon,

Thank you; these two references are super.
