 QUOTE 
-A possibly higher danger of anticipation in h#2.5 or, say, greater chances for originality in the longer problems. (Which is, of course, to some extent speculation on my part.)

The original proposal was for helpmates in 3 to 4 moves.

We found too many earlier works in this range (mainly threemovers). The theme had also been used in the past in a thematic tournament for h#3.

We reviewed many options and after a quite long discussion, we decided to use the theme asking for longer helpmates.

Thanks for warning about h#3 precedents. We will trace then out as our present efforts (we already have a few) are all 3.5 and could very well be anticipated
