Is the obstacles we set for beginners too high, or the help we offer so effectless. I joined the forum in 2020 Mar, but until June to find apgsearch and start to contribute. I joined discord in July, until December Ampere told me how to LSSS, and recommended me searched for 3c7.Does the Internet an inferior way than paper print LifeLine to deliver messages? If some simple tutorial links were there, those contribution could be made earlier.
what do we need in READ.me
most basic mouse and keyboard usage
advice of exploring for beginners
basic link to Lifewiki, discord
script usage (pattern identify to Catagolue, metafise of OTCA cell )
link to soup search, oscillator search, spaceship search.
Link to rlifesrc
It may sound childish, but we do need tutorials like:
draw a straight line.
1 dot: it disappears
2 dots: it disappears
3 dots: congrats! you find an oscillator!
4 dots: it involved to beehive, a still life!
pls share your idea of Golly,CGoL,CA beginner tricks.
like: copy '2048o', paste it in Golly, then you can get a line with 2048 dots.
