The very act of asking who found an object is sufficient to make the first few hauls, if they haven't already been deleted, permanent. You're correct that there is no automatic process for attributing non-b3s23 hauls.

I see. So, how did that blue haul appear in that non-b3s23 rule, then? And, if I understand it correctly, is a discovery in b3s23 only credited if someone calls the attribute function on the object before its hauls are deleted?

Let me clarify:

  • Calling /attribute causes relevant hauls to become blue if they haven't yet been deleted.
  • Anyone can call /attribute on any object in any rule.
  • For b3s23, there are also two automatic processes which call /attribute, namely Catagolue itself and Ivan's twitterbot.

Has anyone done an in-depth analysis of W110, its common particles, and their interactions, etc? If not, I will do it.

Yeah, it has even been proven universal: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_110

And owing to this, W110 is really the most likely rule to have already been explored in depth.

I meant descriptions of common spaceships, their speeds, etc. May make that one.
