Ah, I was not referred to the page you gave, but followed the instructions
on the posting input form, namely writing an e-mail to
[email protected]

Unfortunately, the page you referred me to now does not seem to work
either. First time I tried it refused my user ID because it contained
periods, and now it does not want to accept me because it says 'e-mail
address already in use'...

But to get back on topic: I am currently trying the Minister/WDN in a
normal Chess context on a 10x8 board (so no Capablanca pieces, but two
Ministers in stead). It seems that to balance two Ministers, I need Q+R
(Q+N seemed far too weak, Q+2N far too strong after ~10 games). That would
make them worth approximately 7 Pawns. To get it more precise I have to
wait until I have about 100 games.
