i agree with Alex,
your setting 8 moves preceding the original must be recognised as "another " original setting ... by you .
the only problem is that one day someone may put yours back another 8 moves , and if this continues we may find ourselves with 12 men each on board as in start position before blacks first move!!!
Now the guy who does this will become even more famous than Tinsley !!!
William i think that is a great idea for a problem .... and the explanation should be "red to move and win, draw or lose"
its your idea so make sure you patent it quickly
