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.
