don't worry, "my solutions" will suffice for getting the smiles

Thank you for your compliments, but I hope we are not going to re-enact Don Quixote and Sancho Panza :-)

It's a positively trumpy honor to get problemist's attention for whatever reason :-)

Nice, that you take it with humor. Forgive me the pun about your name, but on your average postings it is not easy to determine if you are a human impersonating a bot, or a bot impersonating a human, or, on a higher order, a human impersonating a bot impersonating a human, and so on. So you could possibly pass the Turing test in both directions :-)

slowbot2 flagging or is it really a 3 stars problem? 1. Bg6? Nxc6!. I saw it before I forgot about it :-)

A promotion to a Knight is prepared, but not immediately when 1. h8N? N3xb4! and 2. Nfxd7 is stalemate. Therefore the other way round, first the capturing key i.e. wNf8 captures on d7 (when on 1.. NxR 2. PxN# is a short mate) and threatens quietly 2. h8N. Now on the black stalemate defenses 1.. N3xb4 2. f5 works and on 1.. N5xd4 the echo 2. f3 (but unfortunately also the dual 2. cxd3 works). HM. Not that easy to solve as it may appear from hindsight.
