MWSS gun(I want name it Gosper MWSS gun, because it make of many twogun)...
Welcome to the forums! (a week late, but I don't think anybody has said this yet)
We tend to be very careful about naming and attribution around here, and the related idea of notability
on the LifeWiki. You may find this to be strange, confusing, or annoying, at least at first.
We do this because otherwise we've found that enthusiastic newcomers tend to spend a lot of time re-inventing existing ideas, and then claiming them as discoveries and giving them new names. Things get very confusing very quickly if a lot of people do that.
In this case, I think we'd better not call your pattern a "Gosper MWSS gun", because the p60 MWSS gun that Gosper is recorded as building
in September 1971 used two guns plus a pentadecathlon -- similar to the mechanism in the gun that Entity Valkyrie 2 posted above, but using pairs of p30 guns to produce two p60 streams.
It's probably a good plan to not think in terms of "naming" your patterns at all, at least until you've had some practice looking for prior art. Most newcomers' early efforts (but not all of them!) tend to be rediscoveries of known ideas. So it tends to work better to let other people in the community have a look first -- they'll ask you for a name if a pattern actually needs one.
