Can someone fix the diagram?[edit]

At the end of the article, I put a diagram that's intended to illustrate four different examples of strong far-advanced passed pawns. The board should have bold black lines added to it to divide it into four 4x4 quadrants -- just like the diagram illustrating the Stalemate article. This is, however, beyond my limited technical abilities. Can someone please take care of this? Krakatoa 06:37, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Error in description of connected passed pawns?[edit]

The text says "In both the first and second diagrams, White's b and c pawns are connected passed pawns" but in the second diagram white doesn't even have a pawn on the B file. I assume this is an error (but am not an expert at chess myself ;-) )

Good catch. There must have been another diagram at one time that was deleted, without changing the text. Bubba73 (talk), 05:56, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Error in the "Languages" Box[edit]

The link to "italiano" in the Languages box links to "Pedone isolato", which is actually an isolated pawn, not a passed pawn. I suggest this is fixed, with the link pointing to the more appropriate . I'd do it myself, but being a casual user, I don't know how. :p (talk) 07:53, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, I've made the fix. If you are curious about what is required, this is the diff. Quale (talk) 15:20, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Arbitrary insult[edit]

Awkwardness of the knight[edit]

The knight definitely isn't awkward if it has directly blockaded a non-rook pawn. It suffers no loss of mobility whereas the pawn is stuck. We should change the article to not unconditionally say that the knight is "awkward" when dealing with passed pawns.--Jasper Deng (talk) 02:11, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
