Well, thanks! Unfortunately I don't keep separate web pages on piece values. What I learn about them I usually publish here. Not all comments here can be appropriately associated with an article, however. (The Piececlopedia is far from complete.) And unassociated commands are almost impossible to find back here, if they don't disappear at all.

I remeber having published something here about divergent pieces (mKcN, mNcK, mQcN, mNcQ), and on another occasion there was a topic in which both Mats Winther and I published about the value of bifurcator pieces.

Recently I did an investigation on sliders that skip the first square, either completely, or allowing captures or rifle captures to them. This in connection with the weird 'Heavenly Tetrarchs' piece of Tenjiku Shogi. But the results never got any further than the 'Talk page' of the Wikipedia article about Tenjiku.
