Ambrose and its offshoots have gone the way of Barnabas and Pinnock, and the next 'deconsecrations' afterwards came to me as a result of rationalisation. Boyprimate, Boywazir, Girlchatelaine, and Girlferz were dropped because of the implications that there should be the likes of Boycamelru, Boyknight, Girlcamel, and Girlnightru. As yet I cannot think of anything else to remove.
	I used my suspension of new index pages to add the concept of Averse pieces to cover triAngular geometries as a subset of hex ones - and emphasise that pieces with a Piececlopedia entry are the established ones. Now the incompleteness is nagging at me - for example, Abbey is defined as 'Bishop+Flexer', but with no F page from which to look up Flexer. So I am prepared to start continuing the index pages, but in the absence of further (and less anonymous) positive feedback they will not have the priority that the first few had.

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:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
