Dear retro friends,
all classical last move records type A, B and C are listed in the Retro
Corner/Contents of the retro Corner/A Gallery of records in Retro
Analysis/Last move in FEN (with the name of the author and the year of
publication, but without the source). These are the 178 current records; the
last one set up in 2012 was "Q moves" type B. You will find the correct
diagrams of 177 records in my German book "Eigenartige Schachprobleme" (see
http://www.nightrider-unlimited.de.); there are few errors as to names,
years, source. The position of the last record from 2012 is
 Among these 178 records are not the records type B using the Dead Position
rule (see A. Buchanan's website).  
Best regards
Werner Keym

Dear Community,

I'm currently investigating the list of economy records as of today.
Problem: I do not find one.

- The list on the Retro Corner is outdated

- The list published by Alan on his Website is outdated

- Werner Keym maintains a priovate list which he sends me
  every now and then, the last time in 2014 (which is outdated)

- Clearly, also the lists published in some books (e.g. by Werner
  Keym, Wolfgang Dittmann) are outdated.

Does anyone maintain a list of current records? Can she/he post it on the
RML or publish it elsewhere? Is it possible to establish a mechanism to keep
such lists up to date? (e.g. new records should be posted on the RML)
