Both of these do have spam links, BTW --- in their signatures rather than the bodies of their posts.


Yes, that was also something I said in my post (I've copied the specific section above). :P

Also, even if the posts were deleted, those spam links would remain on the site on the users' profile pages - do the admins have the ability to remove the links from those?

Can someone add me as "trusted" on the wiki? Apparently I've made edits before, but that must have been before the Spam Nation attacked.

Done! "DigitalCross" not "digitalcross", though -- case sensitivity is definitely a thing on the LifeWiki.

Can someone give me the trusted flag?
I already have "PkmnQ" registered, but then i forgot the password to it, and I didn't even get permission yet.
So the account I'm asking for is "PkmnQuantum".

It's just in case I want to edit something.

It's needed to eat the first natural glider of the formed Herschel. If you open the LifeViewer, click the reset button once, and then play it, the pattern will run for enough time to show it in action.
x₁=ηx
V ⃰_η=c²√(Λη)
K=(Λu²)/2
Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt)

$$x_1=\eta x$$
$$V^*_\eta=c^2\sqrt{\Lambda\eta}$$
$$K=\frac{\Lambda u^2}2$$
$$P_a=1-\frac1{\int^\infty_{t_0}p(t)^{l(t)}dt}$$

I see the glider escaping when I run it.

you’re probably talking about the input herschel’s fng, the large eater5 variant is for the output herschel’s fng.

Thanks! That's a recent mistake of mine, from finishing up the import of material from Life Lexicon Release 29, and forgetting to update the infobox template properly. I guess I'll leave it for you to patch as a test of your newfound wikipowers -- thanks again for noticing the problem.

... I'd ask if you have any interest in a few new Conway's Life prize details for the mathpuzzle.com Prize Page, but it looks as if it's been several years since mathpuzzle.com has gotten any updates. It's still an amazing archival collection of miscellaneous mathematics, though -- any plans to start it back up again at some point?

You're a moderator on LifeWiki since you can add people to the trusted list?
