Can you please post the pattern here first? Select the pattern in Golly, press Ctrl+C, and put it between "code" tags.

Infinite spaceships that move at C are already known. This one is the simplest:
x = 2, y = 2, rule = B3/S23:T2,0
2o$o!

BTW, I'm not sure you noticed, but Nathaniel did set the Trusted flag for your wiki account a few days, so you're good to go.

Of course Eric's advice still applies: if you'd like to share a new pattern, best to post it on the forum first so people can take a look and see if it's notable enough to deserve its own wiki article.

Are you quite sure? Looking at his single post I'd say this is probably a legitimate new user who's trying to show off an app that he created.

Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater!

That spam message at first only had the first part, so it seemed sliiightly normal.
Nice waterbear you got there. Would be a shame if this rake shot it down from the other side of the universe.

Hello. I want to create a page in the wiki about the analogues of GOL but with von Neumann neighborhood, summarizing known results about them. Can you please enable editing for me? My username is "marioxcc" in the wiki.

Sorry for the delay -- the last four requesters are all now "trusted" on the wiki and can make edits.

Is there any way to change my wiki username? I kind of cringe at what I currently have.

MediaWiki sort of supports that; there's a bundled extension, but it's not enabled by default.

Note that even if it is enabled, users cannot rename their own accounts; by default, the ability to rename accounts is restricted to bureaucrats only.
