For me, the object page for the block-plus-ship says it has a glider synthesis, but when you click on it, it says "invalid pattern" and doesn't show a synthesis.

apgluxe incorrectly classifies both these soups as containing an "ov_p0". Strangely, the ash in both soups is the same set of objects, a block and a xs19_c8bjo33z33.

Here the two oscillators are not correctly separated:

Code: Select all

x = 33, y = 13, rule = B2ik3-jn4ceijk5r/S1e2aci3-k4ty
bo$3o13bo$5o10b3o$3o13bo$bo$27b3o$27b3o$27b3o$24b3o3b3o2$28bo$28bo$28bo!
(.https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp ... 2aci3-k4ty)

It should be:
https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp ... 2aci3-k4ty

This is weird as they are not even close to each other.

Their envelopes overlap. There was a rationale for not separating oscillators with overlapping envelopes, which hung on the existence of a Reflectorless Rotating Oscillator.

Or potentially others such as a reflector less flipping osc or reflector less C2 rotating oscillators (semi-RRO's?)

Why are the b3s23/C1 backup censuses now showing up in the leaderboard?

That's because someone has done the very naughty thing of creating a backup of a backup, and they show up if the number of layers of backup is even.

I didn’t actually do it that time. What if you submit soups to a backup?

There was s backup of a crack up of a backup.

Also double backups show up in the symmetry list for a census CV like movero8 which can be convenient (e.g. on mobile)

Now there's five of them on the leaderboard. :roll: They'll go away if you delete the double-backups, right?

Deleted. These annoying backups seem to originate from Huntington, NY.

Good. And as for Huntington, NY, that seems suspiciously close to where wwei23 said he lived...

It may be wise to implement something server-side to stop said double backups from happening. I remember there was a rule (a boring move variant I searched) with a weird phantom symmetry that was showing up in the symmetry list despite being a backup, maybe it's related to it.

Also, wwei and majestas, if you could refrain from posting a combined 7 one liners in a row that would be great

For future reference, Calcyman has now implemented code to prevent double backups from being possible (he mentioned this on the Discord).

Why not just make it so that backing up an odd number of backups backs it up twice? Then it would always go from odd to odd.

Code: Select all

x = 81, y = 96, rule = LifeHistory
