## 25-cell quadratic growth

Hello, Nathaniel,

please upload the following RLE to the wiki. Codeholic (talk) 14:03, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

#N 25-cell quadratic growth #O Michael Simkin #C The smallest known pattern, that exhibits quadratic population growth, #C as of October 2014. #C www.conwaylife.com/wiki/25-cell_quadratic_growth x = 21372, y = 172, rule = B3/S23 21368bo$21368bo$21369b2o$21371bo$21371bo$21324bo46bo$21325bo45bo$ 21326bo$21325bo$21324bo$21326b3o151$70b2o$71bo$8b2o$9bo5$o$o$o!

## Pattern request

Here is the RLE file for Glider explosion, a 10-cell Methuselah:

#N Glider explosion #C A Methuselah whose lifespan is 145 and explodes (increases and decreases quickly). #C Its stable pattern is composed of four beehives and two loaves. #r 23/3 #R -2 -2 x = 6, y = 5 obo3b$b2o3b$bo2bob$3b2ob$3bobo!

And, of course, because it is made of gliders, its synthesis RLE is the same as above.

## Thanks

Howdy, just wanted to say thanks for the "trusted" flag! Apple Bottom (talk) 12:08, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

- No problem! Should've gotten around to it a while ago, honestly. Nathaniel (
**talk**) 16:34, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

## Pattern files for still lifes

Howdy, I wanted to let you know I've started creating entries for smaller still lifes (11-bitters so far) that don't yet have any. I think you're the only one who can upload RLE files for the patterns and their syntheses, right? Would be mighty cool if you could thus complete those entries when you get around to it. I'll also let you know when I'm done with the 11-bitters. Best, Apple Bottom (talk) 12:13, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

- Actually any of the mods can (so me, dvgrn, Sokwe, codeholic... maybe some others, I forget ;)). I'll add it to my list. I can also quickly upload any RLEs that you e-mail to me (support@conwaylife.com). Cheers! Nathaniel (
**talk**) 15:27, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

- Great! I've created all the remaining articles for the 11-bit still lives; will look into emailing you the RLEs soon. BTW, since the RLEs for the syntheses are all on Mark Niemiec's site already, would it be considered improper to simply copy those over from there? Apple Bottom (talk) 14:25, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

## Pattern for 112P15

Nathaniel, if you'd be so kind -- I've added a page for 112P15, a previously-unknown (AFAICT) oscillator that appeared on Catagolue; here's the RLE for the pattern:

x = 25, y = 25, rule = B3/S23 6bo11bo$7b2o7b2o$3bobob2o7b2obobo$2bobo15bobo$3bo17bo$2bo19bo$o9b2ob2o 9bo$b2o8bobo8b2o$b2o6bobobobo6b2o$8bobo3bobo$6bo2bo5bo2bo$6b3o7b3o2$6b 3o7b3o$6bo2bo5bo2bo$8bobo3bobo$b2o6bobobobo6b2o$b2o8bobo8b2o$o9b2ob2o 9bo$2bo19bo$3bo17bo$2bobo15bobo$3bobob2o7b2obobo$7b2o7b2o$6bo11bo!

Would be great if you could add this to the entry. Thanks! Apple Bottom (talk) 21:10, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

## Vivarium

Hi! I'm new to the wiki, but not to wikis in general or to life. Last year I started developing a project for Wikipedia called WikiWidgets that adds interactive JavaScript widgets to Wikipedia articles. The project is already deployed in the Spanish Wikipedia, and the second widget I developed was for Conway's Game of Life. The widget is called Vivarium and you can see it live at the Spanish Wikipedia here. A nice thing about the way these widgets are implemented is that they can be easily added to any MediaWiki wiki, such as this one. All that you would need to do is add the following line to MediaWiki:Common.js:

if ( $( '.WikiWidget' ).length ) { mw.loader.load( '//commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:WikiWidgets.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript' ); }

This line will load the initialization code for the widgets every time a div with the class 'WikiWidget' is found. Such a div can be inserted into any article through the Template:Vivarium that I already created. This template also allows users to define which cells should start out alive (scroll down the article in the Spanish Wikipedia to see a demo). Thus, this widget has the potential to illustrate every single article about a pattern with a working mini version of the game itself! I cannot think of anything more appropriate for this wiki, I hope you'll agree. If you add the code to MediaWiki:Common.js, you should be able to see a working demo with a collection of oscillators at my userpage. Cheers! --Felipe (talk) 03:50, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

- Oh and by the way, would you mind changing my username to Felipe Schenone (nobody calls me Luis). I checked your Special:Version page and you don't seem to have the Renameuser extension installed, but installing it is easy (if you don't know how to, you may want to consider hiring me for one hour, I can do marvels heh). I'm trying to unify my identity throughout the Internet and would really appreciate this. Thanks, thanks, thanks! --Felipe (talk) 18:11, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

- Hi there. First off, my apologies for not responding to this sooner. Thanks very much for introducing you to your Vivarium project, which is very nice. However, we are actually in the process of rolling out another similar project on the wiki (which has been live on the forums here for some time now). In addition to being consistent with our forums, this viewer is very fast and able to handle large patterns, and has a wide variety of advanced features (e.g., other cellular automata support) that have been added in over the past few years. Here is an example of our viewer in action:

All the best. Nathaniel (**talk**) 02:02, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

- That's excellent, thanks a lot for integrating the LifeViewer applet into the wiki! Now all we need to figure out is how to best use this in articles.

- I'd like some community discussion on this before unilaterally making sweeping changes across the entire wiki. Given we seem to have been lacking a central discussion page so far, I thus also took the liberty of creating the LifeWiki:Tiki bar, modelled (in spirit at the very least) on Wikipedia's Village pump, Wiktionary's Beer parlour etc. This should also lessen the load on your own talk page a bit. ;)

- I've started by putting down some thoughts on LV:Viewer integration there. Would be great if we can get a constructive discussion going so we can make the most of the applet! Apple Bottom (talk) 11:14, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

## Handling categories for spaceship directions in Template:Spaceship

Howdy Nathaniel, I was wondering whether it wouldn't be a good idea to let Template:Spaceship handle categories for spaceship directions -- i.e. by automatically putting ships into the proper category.

Right now we only have Category:Oblique spaceships, which has four members that were all added manually; Category:Diagonal spaceships and Category:Orthogonal spaceships don't exist, though Demonoid had been placed in the former.

I think having all three categories would be valuable, and given that Template:Spaceship already takes a parameter for direction, it would be natural to use to populate them automatically.

Normally I'd have just jumped in and made the change myself, but the template's protected and I can't edit it. So I'm proposing this here instead. ;) (Is there a way to protect pages in such a manner that, say, users with the "trusted" flag can edit them even if they're not administrators?) Apple Bottom (talk) 20:28, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

- Good idea, thanks. I've modified the protection on the Spaceship template so that any "trusted" user can edit it. Just send me a quick message any time there are other protected pages you want to be able to edit. Nathaniel (
**talk**) 14:59, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

- Wonderful! I've gone ahead and made the change, and also added the relevant categories, supporting templates, parent categories etc. Apple Bottom (talk) 18:17, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

## RLE file for tetraplets

Howdy Nathaniel, could you be so kind and add the following RLE for the tetraplets shown on polyplet?

## Changing protection levels

Howdy! There's a few more pages I'd like to be able to edit but which are currently fully protected, so in light of what you said above, if you could change their protection levels so trusted users can edit them, that'd be excellent.

Here's a list, along with what I'd like to do:

- Template:SpaceshipNavbox: should list Category:Spaceships with specific direction and Category:Spaceships with specific slope.
- Template:Disambig: should put pages into Category:Disambiguation pages.
- Category:Still lifes: should be placed in Category:Pattern categories.
- Category:Reflectors: dto.
- Category:Pure glider generators: dto.
- Category:Puffer engines: dto.
- Category:Pseudo still lifes: dto.
- Category:Patterns: dto.
- Category:Induction coils: dto.
- Category:Eaters: dto.
- Category:Everything else: should be placed in Category:Toplevel category.
- Template:Cite web: add documentation.
- Template:Gun: should categorize guns by period.
- Template:Pattern: should allow more than one discoverer to be specified.

I'm sure there'll be more eventually, but this is it for now. Thank you! Apple Bottom (talk) 11:30, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

## Wrong RLE

Howdy, on a related note, I noticed the RLE for Killer candlefrobras is incorrect. The linked RLE snippet is for the "Killer candlefrobras eating HWSS" reaction (File:Killercandlefrobraseatinghwss.png); same for the Life 1.05, Life 1.06 and Plaintext files. The correct RLE for the pattern itself is this:

x = 21, y = 5, rule = B3/S23 4bo11bo$2obob2obo3bob2obob2o$2obo3bobobobo3bob2o$3bo4bo3bo4bo$3b2o11b 2o!

Would be great if you could fix this. Thanks! (And I also do apologize for posting so many messages on your talk page here, but unfortunately all this is work I cannot do myself.) Apple Bottom (talk) 11:15, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

## Changing protection levels (2nd)

Howdy, could you (or another sysop) be so kind and change the protection level of the following pages to allow edits by Trusted users?

- Categories:
- Templates:

I'd like to do some housekeeping on these (details are in the task list on my user page), but can't right now. Thanks! Apple Bottom (talk) 22:23, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

- Done! Nathaniel (

## Pattern collection

Hi Nathaniel,

I just realized that some pages, like 339P7H1V0 and spaghetti monster, have broken download links to RLE files. Other pages, like syringe, have links to Life 105, Life 106, and plaintext formats, but none of these work either. The RLEs for the spaceships can be copied from the RLE namespace pages, but the syringe has no RLE page, so here is its RLE:

x = 55, y = 68, rule = B3/S23 o$b2o$2o18$19bobo$20b2o$20bo4$35bo$35b3o$38bo$37bobo$37bobo$38bo5$53b 2o$53b2o4$33b2o$32bobo$32bo$31b2o7b2o$40b2o2$48b2obo$48b2ob3o$54bo$48b 2ob3o$47bo2b2o$46bobo$45bobob2obo$46bo2bob2o$49bo$48b2o$45bobo2b2o$45b 2o2bo2bo$50b2o6$35b2o$34bo2bo$35b2o!

Here is an alternate version, where the herschel-eating beehive is removed but the object gets destroyed at the end.

x = 36, y = 40, rule = B3/S23 obo$b2o$bo4$16bo$16b3o$19bo$18bobo$18bobo$19bo5$34b2o$34b2o4$14b2o$13b obo$13bo$12b2o7b2o$21b2o2$29b2obo$29b2ob3o$35bo$29b2ob3o$28bo2b2o$27bo bo$26bobob2obo$27bo2bob2o$30bo$29b2o$26bobo2b2o$26b2o2bo2bo$31b2o!

The code for the pattern infobox currently says "rle = false", "plaintext = false", etc. but this doesn't seem to make a difference as those links are still provided.

I also found some patterns in the collection that aren't linked to on the Wiki at all, such as mersenneprimecalculator, primequadrupletcalculator, cousinprimecalculator, pp8primecalculator, and scrubber_with_blocks.

## Question about blocks

Why have you given Spam User at least 50 infinite blocks? Because the blocks are infinite, you only need to block Spam User once. -wwei23 3:18 PM 4/10/2018 NY time

I can answer that question: "Spam User" is not a single user, but rather the location to which every spambot gets moved. So all of those blocks are for different spambots. 77topaz (talk) 09:17, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
