It was a clever attempt to advertise something without looking like they’re advertising something

EDIT: For those who didn’t see the post, it mentioned an error code that was in the signature, suggesting that they were trying to sell their stuff to people who they might have thought of as inexperienced or lazy (i.e. not going to put effort into a google search of what the error code means). This shows an upside of the name “Conway’s game of life”— they probably expect to be finding huge jackpots of fools who spend all day playing violent shooter games. They don’t expect anyone to use the slightest caution.

EDIT:
This is not the first time I’ve worked on a reply to something and then see it disappear before I post my reply.

This user’s signature, if not their first post, is not very promising.

@smrutibora:
I would recommend, should you actually be interested in CA, that you change your signature; recently there has been a lot of spam on this website and you may get blocked because of your signature.

I'm trying to train people not to post replies to spam. The fastest and easiest thing for a moderator to do is delete spam as soon as it shows up. But if someone has posted a response to said spam in the mean time, then now there's a link that looks like an interesting topic, that other people are likely to click on. Then maybe those people will post something saying "the link doesn't work", and the moderator might have to spend a long time explaining things, instead of just a few seconds deleting and banning.

I fixed the above link so it goes somewhere after all, but you don't want to go there either.

So... my recommendation is, don't bother responding to spam. Report it using the little exclamation mark icon if you want (though that usually isn't necessary either) -- but don't bother making a post anywhere with a link to the offending post. And there's no point in responding to responses to spam either. The entire chain will probably get deleted too, again because that's way quicker than what I just did instead.

TL;DR: Sometimes the best action is no action. Just keep breathing in and out for a while, and spam will become Not a Problem.

You'll need to create a LifeWiki account first, preferably the same as your forum account (or post the name here). Oddly enough, the two account systems are completely separate.

Need my account validated. I have a very impressive (by my standards) 16x16 Methuselah I would like to post.

I also have some janky ships I would like to post, they are made from other ships (slightly modified) but serve their own unique purpose that could possibly be of use to some people. If those don't belong on the wiki, let me know so I won't post them.

Ermm - you should post them here first.

Do they break the records set by 47575M (47575 generations)?

Done, but do heed testitemqlstudop's warning: if a methuselah doesn't break the current record in terms of lifespan (47,575 generations) or has the longest lifespan for its size, it unfortunately probably isn't notable enough to be included on the wiki. As for the ships, if you could paste the RLE here on the forums (preferably placed inside

Code: Select all

 tags, which adds the option to show them in the HTML5 viewer) we can make a judgment about how notable they are.

I get the sense that seternal thinks you need to be trusted to post elsewhere in the forum as well, so you should probably explain that. Or I guess I just did.

I have been idle for around 6 months. Do you think I've changed enough to re-add me again?
