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.

Thanks, my teacher was really impressed with the vocabulary when I gave my presentation, so I confessed that I had help.

comment Is the description for components of 条 correct?
I'm not sure what you mean by "the tick" when you say the traditional form would not have the tick. Could you include a form of the character with and without the tick? I found the simplified version, 条, and the traditional version, 條, but the traditional form has more strokes, not fewer.

comment What is the top part of 姜 and why does it differ?
Welcome to Stack Exchange, CL. The character you're asking about didn't seem to be encoded properly, so I guessed that it was ⺷. You can roll back my edit if I'm mistaken.

Something was wrong with encoding. Guessed at replacement character ⺷.

comment What is the name of this traditional Chinese character font?
It's probably close enough, but not quite identical. If you try a sample character like 的, you'll see that the left side has two strokes that cross below the bottom stroke in the font that magnetar posted, but only one stroke does in axisstd-extralight.
