Re: PotY 2021 Nomination Thread

For #27 (p11 bouncer), you list me as the only discoverer. Extrementhusiast (Martin Grant) found the p11 oscillator; I turned the existing p11 into a bouncer. Thank you for informing me of that. I have updated the post accordingly. For #32, here are the links: https://www.conwaylife.com/w/index.php...

Could it maybe have been this conversion component? It has three gliders, and it makes a snake and a block, but it would really be 5G in all.
No, I recall thinking at the time that that constitutes a two-step, four-glider snake.
