Since I posted my last commentit occurred to me that by not responding to your points you might have meant not responded in detail in my immediate reply. This is because most of what I post I draft offline beforehand to leave my time online is free to do what I cannot do offline. The bulk of what I post here - be it in-depth comments, page updates, or full-blown new pages - is pasted in from text created offline.

'I see you didn't respond to any of my suggestions' No, what you mean is that you don't see that I did respond. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Anyway, here is my response your latest suggestion plus a repeat of my past responses. Rumbaba+Drummer+Trumpeter: Yes, there is a very good case for this, it would fit in with the recently-added Guardian and Wrestler and Weatherer. Rumbaba+Trumpeter and Drummer+Trumpeter could also do with names, and I will certainly put some thought into it. I will put some thought into these. Rosette and offshoots: I tend to think of a piece moving in a particular way and then - if I can find no prior reference to such a piece try to devise a name for it. If any group of pieces worth putting into Man and Beast suit these names I will use them. The next pieces that I am thinking of devising new names for are Rook+Spear, Cannon+Elephant, Bishop+Musket, and Arrow+Dabbaba - oh, and following an interest expressed by Christine Bagley-Jones, Queen+Gazelle and Queen+Bison. Sultan's Elephant Chess: I remember asking whether you were making a case against just the name or the variant as a whole. The game aws very much created with its theme in mind. My memory was that it was you who did not reply further to this, and if I have missed a reply I am sorry.

Yeah I see you didn't respond to any of my suggestions. Is it that there's something wrong with the comment thread or something like that? And if you did reply to me like you said try to remember what you are gonna tell me. Thanks.

'By the way, I see you haven't responded to my last couple of comments, reffering to the reintroduction of the Rosette pieces under different movements and revamping Sultan's Elephant Chess. Is it because you're ignoring me?' I'm sure that I replied to both of those. If for any reason you missed the replies, I'll try and remember what you asked and what I replied and repeat it for you.

You know what would be good? Naming a Rumbaba+Drummer+Trumpeter compound. I would suggest something music-related because two of the three pieces composing it are also music-related. See if you can go from there. By the way, I see you haven't responded to my last couple of comments, reffering to the reintroduction of the Rosette pieces under different movements and revamping Sultan's Elephant Chess. Is it because you're ignoring me?
