Joe, You wrote, 'Gary, it's your game then, inspired by (zzo38) A. Black.'

Response: I don't think I agree.  For one thing, I would not have made this game.  I made a few comments... just some suggestions so (zzo38)A. Black could have a contest entry.  It would be wrong for me to take Bland Chess, do a slight re-work, and submit it as my own... at least, I would not feel right about that... so I would not do it.  

For your questions:

1 - Which of these 2 people above do you [who are reading this right now] think will make the board changes and other necessary corrections?
Answer: I will do that for Bland Chess 46-NMW
2 - Whose game is it, really?
Answer: I will consider it as a dual-owner game, zz038A.Black's and mine. But, if one name were to be removed, then I prefer that it be my name that is removed.
