As someone whose recent comment on a variant of my own was sympathetic to the views of the anonymous contributor I should perhaps point out that I was not that contributor. If you are sure that your number of variants will remain small, then fine. On the other hand, if you eventually invent as many as I have and want a page for each, it will make things unwieldy. It might be interesting to see your existing variants grouped by board shape, and certainly would to see an article giving an overview of the new pieces -

http://www.chessvariants.org/index/mainquery.php?type=Piece&orderby=LinkText lists the kind of pages I mean. Another small point: the pop-up when the page linked to is opened is annoying.

A point about the problem in uploading images: yes, I am suffering from that as well, but only with board of too complex a shape for ffen diagrams to deal with, which is not the case with this lot. Adding ffen diagrams would certainly make it easier to view and judge the variants.
