Gustavo, although you are not sure whether your discovery is interesting or not, that doesn't mean you can post whatever discoveries you make. This is a forum. This means not only you but all other people interested in CGoL are sharing the forum with you. This also means that you should at least try to listen to what others say. Perople here have a consensus in interesting discoveries. dvgrn and towerator already told you many times about that.Gustavo6046 wrote:Wait in there! Don't think I know every single pattern under 20 cells, and much less expect I know the most notable ones!
If I post something, I ain't certain of it being novel or if I have "rediscovered" 't!
Ignoring others and posting what only you would like is not only egotistic but is also vandalism (at least to me), and quite opposite to "Helping the GoL community" as you wished.
I'm not arguing against everything you post. I support everyone's ideas as long as they belong to the topic and do not hinder communication. I support your idea of making Life cursors. (As long as you upload at least your "99%" of the work.) However, all you posted --unnotable patterns, GoL-SSRP, asking for goslow.py without any information, python installation, were either patterns that aren't too special for other people or off-topic. I can almost guarantee that this disturbs a lot of people browsing the forum, expecting for new novel patterns of the topic instead of posts that hinder the flow of conversation.
So Please, at least try to listen to what others say and post patterns that are interesting.
If you are not sure what interesting patterns are, these patters are probably interesting.
If your pattern matches none of the above, then try to post patterns that only:towerator wrote:A previously unknown eater (Scorbie: that eats an interesting reaction) is interesting. A glider synthesis of a complex pattern is interesting. A reaction that can be exploited into a spaceship (And by this I mean, a plausible one) is interesting. A spaceship is interesting. An unknown oscillator(Scorbie: with at least period 7, better if the period is unknown) is interesting.
1)Unique, so that few patterns have the same characteristic. Or breaks some records.
2)Not a previously discovered pattern (and please check existing collections to check, at least jslife collection and LifeWiki, that can be found in the Game of Life Links page)
3)Has a special meaning or function.
4)Not too easy that anyone else would have found it.
for instance your flotillas 3)don't have any special meaning other than being a rake and being a flotilla and 4)anybody would have made it if they cared to make such a thing.
