Re: Life Lexicon update -- now Release 29, 2 July 2018

I've been keeping the latest no-word-wrap text edition of the Life Lexicon on Google Drive, shared so far with David Bell and Apple Bottom since they contributed a lot of new wording and various useful fixes to Release 29. It's probably high time to join the modern age, and make the current To Be D...

Re: Massive spam attacks on the wiki (and forums?)

From my experience on other forums, SEO spambots will often sign up accounts on wikis only to fill their user page with gambling site links. I don't see how this will benefit anyone other than you and spammers, although the distinction is a bit blurry at this point. Coming out of the woodwork for a...

Please, post in the right thread. There's no need to ping everyone who's subscribed to this one, on the assumption that the only new posts will be for interesting new objects. Basic questions don't belong here.

Hmm? I reckon I'm just missing the obvious here, but in what sense is this a methuselah, much less one that stops evolving at generation 133,100?

Re: Catagolue browser extension

The extension appears to work well in Firefox. The only incorrect behaviour I have seen is the sample soups are labelled as "C1 soup No. ?/? (Soup, Haul)" in place of "C1 soup No. 1/200 (Soup, Haul)" (for example). I don't know if the Opera extension behaves the same now that Catagolue categorises ...

Yeah, a few of the oldest yls have apgcodes corresponding to their dates of discovery; I presume this was before apgsearch had a proper way of describing the parameters of yls like it does now.
