The Comment You're Replying To

Sorry if the updated page is a disappointment. Is there any specific aspect that you don't like? The rule changes are an attempt to address your criticism of the forwardness, and should not be a problem for anyone familiar with both Shogi and Xiang Qi. The new setup layout was an attempt to reduce the vertical space that it takes up. As I was raising the issue of crediting my contributions in implementations - a feature inspired by my next new variant - I thought it logical to credit those on whose own variants I had worked here. The table of pieces before and after promotion also seemed sensible.

Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:
