Re: would it be possible to make "code" easier to discover and use?

Would it be possible to make the preferred way of sharing patterns (i.e. code tags) easier to discover and use for newcomers, and to make the "viewer" tags less visible in the "Post a reply" form? I think it is inconsistent that the button for the recommended feature is harder to notice (the UI enc...

Re: Blockish and Blockic or blockish and blockic?

Constructablility is vague, so how am I supposed to know which context? Anyway, as I said, constructablility is not integral to blockicness. Constructibility is directly relevant to Blockicness, though -- Blockic constellations appear in contexts where constructibility matters. The advantage of res...

Re: Blockish and Blockic or blockish and blockic?

Do you understand the difference between slow salvo construction and an arbitrary glider synthesis? Anyways, you only need 2 gliders for a bi-block - same as a block. This topic is covered in chapter 5.7 "Slow salvo synthesis" in the textbook . Constructablility is vague, so how am I supposed to kn...

Re: Blockish and Blockic or blockish and blockic?

I consider bi-blocks (and all other patches of block agar) as blockic pseudo still lives, so by my definition bi-blocks are allowed in a blockic constellation. It is clear that this is your definition. But the question is about the established meaning. Blockic constellations appear in contexts wher...

Re: Thread for basic non-CGOL questions

Why do so many patterns in LtL moore look like doughnuts, regardless of range (of at least 2)? Spaceships, oscillators and still lifes tend to look like doughnuts in Bosco's rule and many other LtL.

Re: Defining volatility for spaceships

In my opinion, only strict volatility is defined for spaceships - technically, the volatility of all spaceships is 1 or it would be a puffer/wickstretcher.

Re: Stable Life?

Dave Greene discovered a counter-example to popular belief, IceNine, a massive seed that grows very slowly, quadratically, and unstoppably. This is characteristic of a rule like Seeds or 34 Life, except IceNine requires a much larger critical mass (about 10 megapixels). Yes, this does grow irregula...

Re: Spaceship Discussion Thread

(3,0)c/10 is both fast and high period. There's nothing really special about it except that it's the simplified speed of the natural pi propagation. It's very unlikely to be found any time soon, and I think there would generally be less interest in this speed which further reduces its chances. Yes,...

Protecting the T life page is a little overboard just to stop one or two editors, as it prevents more productive edits from taking place.

Re: Mikipedia clutter

I understand, but the userpage is one's castle. One can do anything they like as long as it does not spread out to the main page space. Things like spam, attacking content, high-activity editing are still detrimental, even if in userspace. Ultimately the wiki is a shared space with a specific scope...

Re: Mikipedia clutter

So far, here and on Discord, there haven't been any claims that the Mikipedia pages are relevant to the LifeWiki in any way. The best argument is that " edits are fine if it’s just once in a while". But "once in a while" isn't a good description of the last several days of editing (before today). A...
