What is the purpose of this page? If it's to list any methuselahs that last a long time (however that is defined), then there are a whole heap that I can contribute that should be included here. If, on the other hand, it is to keep a record of methuselahs that last the longest time for a given cell count, then I propose the following be removed as they are all superseded by others on the list:

- Ten

Syringe

Wake

Switch Engine

Multum in parvo

Rabbits

Bunnies

Blom

Justyna

Iwona

Eve

Ed

Edna

35161M

35201M

Fred

Furthermore, if it is to keep a record of the longest, then inclusion should only be granted where:

1. The number of generations is the largest for a given initial population

2. The number of generations for a given cell count is greater than the number of generations for all entries with a smaller initial population

3. The staring pattern does not include a spaceship (this includes gliders)

4. And perhaps a limit on the initial bounding box? Perhaps a bounding box no more than NxN where N=initial population? Or perhaps no more than SQRT(3N) x SQRT(3N) where N = initial population? (i.e. No more than one-third saturation).

What do others think?
