@HG, I did it first. But I think for me I explained why was that the case. Was I wrong as far as you can see? I'm wondering this as you say that if one person does it (me in this case), then it can perpetuate!

Well, I hadn't really payed attention to it, but IIRC it did draw some criticism, and you defended against that by saying it was impossible to have more than one Interactive Diagram on a page.

Now that isn't really true, and now that I look at it  I think the presentation as different articles is far from ideal. If this strategy would have been applied to Musketeer Chess, there would be hundreds of articles on it.

Variants that only differ in the pieces that start off-board can easily be combined: you could put both a Manticore and a Griffon in the table, and people can then put those they want to use on the gating rank. This is how I made a Diagram for Musketeer Chess. I your case it would have reduced the number of articles from 6 to 3. If the Waffle, Elephant and Frog had not started all in different locations, you could even have combined these, by leaving the piece out, and letting people move them from the table to the board first.
