You have to set up your username on the LifeWiki separately first -- it's not the same account, and can have a different username if you want -- though it's probably less confusing to just keep it the same.

I would like for my eponymous LifeWiki account to be trusted.
I have reduced the cost of universal construction to seventeen gliders and probably to sixteen. All that remains is for the universal operations to be found.

Thank you. That was pretty quick.



Edit: I'm trying to fix the RLE for Period-36 glider gun (The first glider is one row too high.), but I've having difficulty figuring out where to edit the RLE. Could you please help me?



Another edit: I think that I found it (here, although I'm not completely sure), but I don't see an obvious way to edit the page because it isn't directly on the wiki.

What you're looking for is the on-wiki version, which is in the RLE namespace:

https://www.conwaylife.com/w/index.php?title=RLE:P36gun&action=edit

To find where the pattern data is hiding, edit the article in question and look for the "pname" parameter, which in this case is "p36gun". LifeViewer looks for pattern text in an RLE:{pname} article.

However, someone will have to manually delete and replace the gun pattern once you've made the change to RLE:P36gun. The LifeWiki is very conservative by nature. If you add a new RLE:{pname} article that was never uploaded to https://www.conwaylife.com/patterns/ before, then the next run of the auto-upload script will eventually notice it and add it to the LifeWiki patterns collection.

The script currently does not look for differences between already-uploaded patterns and the RLE namespace versions -- it just assumes that if there's something wrong, the change will get propagated over manually. This kind of thing happens rarely enough that that's a fairly reasonable assumption.

Thank you for the explanation. I just edited it.

Thanks! I just patched up the on-wiki version of the pattern files (RLE and .cells), so they should look right after a hard refresh now.

I'm a lover of John Conway's Game of Life.

I've known a little:
The smallest still lifes is Block.
The smallest oscillator is Blinker.
The smallest spaceship is Glider.
The first gun is Gosper glider gun.

Could I get a trusted account please?

PS: I'm a Chinese. Please don't mind if my words are not appropriate.
