Ah, so I was wrong about the promotion zone!  Glad to have that clarified!

Dear colleague, I hope that the present version of submission will satisfy all requirements to be published on Chess Variants Pages. I've clarified the promotion rules. The comment about inspirations has been moved to Notes section.

Best regards - ZK

The pawn promotion zone isn't entirely clear, but I suppose it's the four squares on the mentioned diagonal e8-h5 together with (when a pawn captures diagonally due N) the diagonal f8-h6?

I'd suggest moving the "motivational" setup to the notes.  Having it in the introduction, at first read I thought that was your game!

This page still needs graphics uploaded for it. I have since completed the script I was working on before. I call it the File Manager, and a link to it can be found in the Edit menu and down near the bottom of page when you are logged in.

There is currently a link in the edit menu and down below for authors to see the directory with the images they have uploaded. I am writing a new file manager that will display uploaded images, allow authors to delete them, and give them the ability to make file sizes smaller. But it still needs work.

The page is no longer empty, but the images are external, and do not work.  (The links do work, interestingly.)

I see you've also included some attempts at local image inclusion, but they point to nonexistant files here.  I've edited the first one to point to the location I would expect your images to be hosted (@Fergus, is this documented somewhere for users?), but I don't find any files there either; have you uploaded any images yet (there's a link near the bottom of the page when you are logged in)?

This page is still empty. When you are logged in, you can find a link to edit the page in the Edit menu above or at the bottom of the page. Please let us know when you have added content to this page.
