Making new "methuselah" pages

Please stop adding new pages until you have explored the LifeWiki more and understand its purpose better. While it's great that you have such interest in life, these patterns are not new nor unique nor LifeWiki:Notability notable. There are patterns with as few as 13 cells that last over 29000 generations, so why would this one with 16 cells that lasts 466 generations get a page? Pages are for record-breaking or historically significant patterns, not ones that were found while drawing random shapes in Life software. LifeWiki would be nothing but 500000 pages of "methuselahs" with lifespans around 300 if we allowed these. Nathaniel 01:51, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

By that logic, diehard should be deleted as well, since it only lasts for 130 generations. --70.134.48.115 03:23, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
I replied to your complaint with diehard at Talk:Square target‎, and more importantly I informed you of the rule that you should not remove a pending proposed deletion tag. Please actually read LifeWiki's Notability guidelines and follow the rules. Nathaniel 04:01, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
There's an article on 7468M, despite the fact that 23334M, which lasts over three times as long, had already been discovered. --204.184.214.2 17:27, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
7468M is (i think) the record-holding 8-cell methuselah, therefore it has the right to a page too. Lewis 19:00, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, 7468M is the record-holder for patterns with 8 or fewer cells. But that's beside the point anyway. If you were to find that another pattern listed here is not notable, then you should challenge its notability, not use it as a reason to create any page you see fit.
