I've been studying Chinese since 2006, but I've only made short visits to China, so my progress is slow. I've built some study software to help me learn. I also participate on tatoeba.org.

My other hobby is board game design.

I suspected that 一些 and 更多 didn't sound right together. Thanks for the detailed answer.

comment Is 再过[时间] the most common way of expressing “in [amount of time], something will happen”?
Yes, @Huang, the pinyin on Tatoeba is machine generated, so it's not perfect. The conversion between simplified and traditional characters is also sometimes flawed. It's still helpful for learners, though, even with some errors. I think tatoeba means "for example" in Japanese. The site is intended to collect example sentences and their translations in many different languages.
