Welcome!

Hello, Gustavo6046, and welcome to LifeWiki!

Please read notability guidelines before adding your own discoveries. Normally it's a good idea to ask in the forum, whether your discoveries are novel.

Enjoy playing the Game of Life!

Notability

Hello again, Gustavo,

please do not create articles about patterns you discovered yourself before you get a confirmation from experts on the forums, that your discoveries are novel and notable.

Cheers, Codeholic (talk) 23:32, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Warning

Hello, Gustavo,

I still assume your good faith, but it starts going too far. If you don't stop adding articles and image files for your patterns without getting a prior approval on the forums, that they're notable, I will have to conclude, that your edits are merely a twisted form of trolling.

Big xit in the pants

Sorry but I have the terrible unluck of never discovering anything cool, novel or notable. Like I am a magnet of trash! Say that wide and clear, Codeholic! It is xit I never will have any standard of notability... me, --Gustavo6046 (talk) 20:21, 3 February 2015 (UTC) , that can't even do a single notable xit!

. Keep going

Cheer up! The harder you try, the more you learn. Finding interesting Life patterns is not easy. Read forums, learn how to use search programs and maybe learn how to write your own programs and you'll succeed. Codeholic (talk) 22:22, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
The terrible unluck? More like you're an average human being. The likelihood of anyone finding something notable after 45 years is very, very small Yimmy (talk) 23:25, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
It's not that small. Though Conway's Game of Life is quite well-known, there are not so many people in the world who are really interested in discovering new patterns. And by really I mean that a person should be eager to learn what has been done before, what are the open questions and have an inquiring mind. Just take a look at Category:Patterns found in 2014 to see you're wrong. And remarkably the waterbear was found by a newbie. Similarly a recent p18 oscillator was found by another newbie. So the Game of Life is far from being solved compared to checkers. Codeholic (talk) 07:55, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
