### Patterns with unusual growth rates

A thread for patterns that don't fit under the replicators, polynomial growths or logarithmic growths threads.

### Logarithmically-growing counting patterns

An offshoot of the original "counting patterns" thread from an hour ago, this one specifically focuses on patterns that as a whole grow logarithmically as they count, as opposed to for example counting from an infinitely puffed stream of objects from a separate pattern. Examples: Base 1 What would t...

I'm not sure if this is a me thing, a viewer thing or a forum thing, but the rules featured in this post really don't seem to be recognised as valid despite existing in the rule namespace, and opening a viewer from another post and manually switching to such an rule makes it load for probably eterni...

### Counting patterns

A thread for patterns which "count" in some given base and do not grow logarithmically as a result.

### Patterns with unusual polynomial growth rates

By polynomial I mean growing at a rate t^x for any x above or equal to 0. There may be a better term for non-integer growth rates. Basic examples: t^0 x = 1, y = 1, rule = B/S0 o!

I'd suggest that this also apply to RLE pages as well, for much the same reason.

Let me know if it screws anything up (in particular, if LifeViewer now has trouble pulling in the rule information).

But the letter x still shows up!
Can confirm the existence of this.

As for the concept of likes themselves, I personally support Brian Prentice's viewpoint. The current implementation at least seems mildly unprofessional although that's probably a personal thing that may be discounted.

[R]Super's default colors also differ significantly from the ones specified in Golly - specifically states 1 and 2, which were made to look as close to the Blues theme as possible for the original ruletable (whose specification carried on into Golly). I think they're the same as Golly. Just checked...

Would it be possible to have Rule: namespace pages not use wikitext processing such that the rule can be copied and pasted into Gllly and be fully functional without having to click the edit button?

Perhaps with a select all button much like code boxes do?

Would it be possible to have pseudo/disconnected objects classified under a different letter than proper objects? For example, instead of xs, xp and xq, we'd have ps, pp and pq, or whatever other letter would be considered more fitting. Would make Syntheses much cleaner.

Using the state picker will shift the state numbers displayed to include the picked state, but this is not reflected by the slider.
