## Some questions

For discussion directly related to ConwayLife.com, such as requesting changes to how the forums or wiki function.

### Some questions

I have some questions:

1. Is there a minimal age for joining conwaylife?
2. Who is unname66609?
3. Does LifeWiki store the IP Addresses of users?

Ok! That will be it for now

The terms and conditions shown when you first register say nothing about age, and I think the youngest member here, Gustavo, is 11 or 12 - so no. 2. Who is unname66609? Just another forum user as far as I can tell. They probably live in or near China. Why do you ask? 3. Does LifeWiki store the IP Addresses of users? Yes. gamer54657 wrote:God save us all.

Hmm... Technically, it's perfectly possible, but I can hardly imagine a six-year-old doing stuff like this. If he/she decides to join, definitely tell me the username. If that person achieves anything, I will clap.

Saka wrote:2. Because he never really posts anything... (just things like "what is sesame oil?"

So do you think unname is a bot? It is not probable since he/she used to post some relevant content. Unname is just a strange guy, like Gustavo raised to the 10th power.

No. I failed this test for the the second time in my life

Okay. I just used Gustavo as an example because the normal forum age limit (due to COPPA) is 13.

### Re: Some questions

A question:
Are there any catalogues of LWSS collisions? Or other *WSS collisions?
Only two things are constant: change and the speed of light.

Meaning, a collection of syntheses where the recipes involve colliding LWSSes instead of colliding gliders? For the second question, are combinations of LWSS, MWSS, and HWSS allowed, or should a single recipe have only one kind of *WSS?

In any case, I think the answer is no -- nothing really organized, anyway, because no one has had a long-term use for it. It's fairly easy to put together the beginnings of such a collection by running gencols for a while, along these general lines.

If you just want a table of two-*WSS collisions, that's very easy to generate with gencols. Maybe someone has a stamp collection lying around already.

I've been curious for a while now about construction mechanisms using *WSS slow salvos -- though not curious enough yet to do the research myself, apparently. Seems as if slow LWSSes would probably be just about as effective as gliders for building self-constructing circuitry, and Geminoid construction-arm elbows can be programmed to produce *WSSes instead of gliders. It's several times more expensive, but it allows for four new construction directions.

I know I found a while back that LWSS slow salvos can move a blinker anywhere, but I can't find it anywhere but in a quote in the Accidental Discoveries thread.
x₁=ηx
V ⃰_η=c²√(Λη)
K=(Λu²)/2
Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt)

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

### Re: Some questions

What's with the alternating shades of the posts? Sometimes, tables/lists do that so you can keep track of which item is which, but I don't see how it helps here. Besides, there's almost no difference in the colors.

And, for that matter, the Moon, Jupiter, Titan, and 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.

### Re: Some questions

I only noticed when I tried to make the background of my profile photo the color of the posts. As you can see, the colors match up perfectly here, but they don't in the last post.

I might be able to, but I only know how to edit images through Paint, which is like crappy Photoshop that comes with windows.

### Re: Some questions

Click the checkbox to the right, then choose "Delete marked" at the bottom, from the dropdown where it normally says "Mark/Unmark as important".

Surprisingly well hidden, isn't it? It's a very clever design -- keeps you from deleting things accidentally (or on purpose).

### Re: Some questions

In theory, yes. PMs are stored as plain text in the database and while there is no direct ability within phpbb for the admin to read PMs, any person or program (such as backup software) with access to the database has access to the content of private messages. I see no reason to be concerned about this.
The latest version of the 5S Project contains over 47,000 spaceships. Tabulated pages up to period 160 are available on the LifeWiki.

From what I've gleaned, the stars appear when you've posted in a thread.
