And as long as we are doing requests: I just submitted an article that is an index with internal links to the many interactive diagrams on the CVP that can be used for playing against the AI. Would it be possible to add (a link to) that article in the 'Play' section of the Home Page, just as there is a link to an index page for the Jocly games that are implemented here? We could use this logo:

I also think that a link to the Play-Test Applet article deserves to be in the 'Create column'. I also think the Checkmating Applets should be mentioned, but I am not sure where. My first thought was under 'Explore', but the other items there have a somewhat different character. Perhaps these applets are also 'Play' items? In any case I think they should be mentioned in the 'computer resources' section of the 'topic index' page. The many Jocly games we feature aren't mentioned there either. And the 'diagram editor with scalable graphics' also seems a useful resource worth mentioning.
