if a flag is moved to a corner, turning on the bomb, and then the flag is captured or moves away before the bomb is dropped, does the bomb remain turned on, or does it turn back off until a flag is moved to a corner square again? i had assumed the former until i noticed that zillions considers the latter to be correct. looking at the rules page, it is definitely not clear. the zrf was written by the inventor, and therefore is probably correct, but i thought it would still be worth checking on.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. 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:
