Are Rook-Locust or Bishop-Locust to be considered as thematic?

Mario, here is the negative answer I got today from the judge:
"Definitely, only pure Locusts! And no neutral pieces."

Question by Petko Petkov about BIT-2018

Dear Marjan,
Please for clarification. I hope that in this year in BIT (in section "C" - fairies) , the problems will be awarded only by Judge Dinu-Ioan Nicula but not by the solvers, as it was in previous year. Please confirm, if so. The theme in Section C is very interesting!

Yes, Petko!
As announced, the judge of Group C will be Dinu-Ioan Nicula himself.
On Friday, 25. May there will be Composing-Solving event, not Composing-Solving-Judging as previous years.

Pity. I liked the try with the collective judgement.

Collective judging showed some good and some bad sides previous years. The problems were to discriminate marks by the more and the less experienced judges, and to motivate some solvers less interested in marking. Perhaps, next time, we should use only the marks by solvers who express their wish to do it?
This year Group C is exceptional case, but the judge could still have time to use solvers' opinions and impressions, if he would need them.

Again about BJT-2018 “section C”.

Dear Marjan,

My opinion is that the judge must prepare the award himself - without prior information from the solvers!
Preliminary opinions of solvers are unnecessary in concrete case and may even have a negative effect, as You notes himself speaking for the “solvers-judges”.
I think Dinu-Ioan Nicula is a highly qualified judge and does not need the opinions/ information of the solvers! However, I ask this question to be clearly clarified by the organizers and by the judge himself.
By the way, I will not take part in a competition in which the "preliminary solvers opinions" has such strange "function" that can be used of course only eventually. Self I have awarded a hundreds tournaments , but I have never wanted such "solvers help" in the cited sense or more exactly "such a mechanism of possible “solver`s information".
Of course, if I do not take part in the tournament - it will not any matter. I only express my subjective opinion.But because I have already a few good schemes and it will take me a long time to process them, I want to know if I need to continue my work or not.
I repeat, the theme and the idea of the competition are very good and in my opinion the wonderful J.T. must not be complicated again with questionable "options".

Dear Petko,
let me repeat again the previous answer:
"As announced, the judge of Group C will be Dinu-Ioan Nicula himself."

Questin for Group A

In definition we have-
the white piece...withdraws completely from the scene (...)after the key-move.
Then the white thematic piece must be captured after the key?
In both examples n1 and n2 we have such case...

(13) Posted by Marjan Kovačević [Monday, Apr 30, 2018 20:40]

No. The thematic piece should only lose a good position.

Ok Marjan, but I have yet one very important question.
Is thematic White piece complete exluded from play after the key or can to give new mates in solution/try phase ? It is very important here
(Read Only)pid=16555
(15) Posted by Marjan Kovačević [Tuesday, May 1, 2018 14:41]

There are no strict limits about the use of white thematic piece. The key should be spectacular, that is only condition, all else is allowed.

One note. If one more solver from the top 50 rating list (rating greater than 2390) shows up, the tournament will become 4th category tournament for WSC.
