Suggested LifeWiki edits

Postby Apple Bottom » August 15th, 2017, 5:41 am

Since edits on the wiki are still limited to accounts with the "trusted" flag, and since there's often some delay between new editors' request for the flag and it being granted, I thought it might be good to have a thread where people can suggest edits to the wiki, so that someone who's already able to edit the wiki can do them.

So, here it is!

  • If you have any edits you'd like to see made, post 'em below. Please identify the page, and tell us exactly what you'd like changed.
  • If you are able to edit the wiki and want to help out by implementing these edits: GOOD! Please take the usual care when editing, and don't feel compelled to make edits if you're not comfortable doing so.

Post your edit suggestions below!

Should credits be given? If so, how?

I'd just put a link to the post in which the edit was suggested in the edit summary, myself. Something like this:

"Add volatility - suggested by Apple Bottom, http ://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=48851#p48851".

Should pattern min and max rules be updated to Non-totalistic rules? It would show a better scope of the rulespace that it covers in my opinion.
Things to work on:
- An Isotropic version of All_Speeds
- Find more ships in B2ek3-ajny4ajqr5a/S02ack3ackny4aq5y
- Find a (3,1)c/5 ship in a Non-totalistic rule (someone please search the rules)

This would break the "number of rules" calculation as it's currently done, at the very least. Perhaps we could keep totalistic and non-totalistic rules separate in the infoboxes, or integrate the min/max non-totalistic rules a pattern will work in into the article text instead.

Hi! Can the last paragraph of One cell thick pattern#Spaceships_and_oscillators be updated to reflect the existence of toroidalet's discovery from last year? (And perhaps mine+Wojowu's, if deemed notable enough)

EDIT: brilliant, thank you :)

Excellent additions, both of them. Thanks!

Can a catagolue link to the spaceship on Gems be added to its picture?

Also, can a link to the rule with the c/2068 spaceship be provided, in case I ever get around to making a page on said rule?

Done.

Which one is that?

Isn't there a script that can generate the apgcode for a pattern?


Also, can the amount of did you know items on the main page be updated?

Yes, there is. This is what I'm using.

It could...

But that sort of discussion is more appropriate for the Tiki bar.
