This is probably the first time such a nice find got picked up by the GoL community before the discoverer themselves knew about it, but I would definitely give you that title. It came out of a search on your computer, and searches are how we find these sorts of things. The difference this time is that the Twitterbot revealed it to the rest of us instead of you personally, though I totally understand if it feels like getting a trophy by accident.Rich Holmes wrote:Heh. "Rich Holmes discovered"? I was asleep when apgsearch found this and woke up to find it'd been logged, tweeted, retweeted, reported here, used to make a smaller gun, deemed awesome, and written up on the wiki.
It has probably been observed before at least 3 times. For example, I found it in this pattern back in 2013:_zM wrote:Don't think I have seen this before. Is this known?Pre-pulsar crashes into a boat and makes a HWSS.Code: Select all

Quick side note, not to distract from the professor discussion: all of these have, in fact, been known for a very long time; the only reason the one posted by Apple Bottom is special now is that it's the first time it's appeared from an apgsearch-verified soup, while none of these other stabilizations/combinations have (except probably the glider+shuttle reaction, but that isn't very notable anyways and was also likely known long before apgsearch).Gamedziner wrote: Actually, that can hold two:And an alternate stabilization:Code: Select all

o!
I'm with you - better to name an entire group of related objects than to pick one out and assign it a name while neglecting the others.gameoflifeboy wrote:Well, we need to make up our mind as to whether "professor" is a non-systematic name for the whole object like "omnibus" or for just half the object (personally, I prefer the latter).
If one of the induction coils is called a professor, then the five isomers will be, in order, cis-mirrored professor, trans-mirrored professor, offset mirrored professor (or skew-professors, or shift-mirrored professor), trans-rotated professor, and cis-rotated professor.
Hmm... I have been thinking about naming new things lately. I thought that this was the thoughts of most of us in the forum, but I am not sure if this still is today.Apple Bottom wrote:Is there a consensus re: "professor" as such, BTW? I think it's a decent name that fits in neatly with chemist, mathematician, ecologist and so on.
Based on my proposals.Scorbie wrote:Still, I think objects already with a name, at the very least, shouldn't be named again, unless there is a good reason to do so. (e.g. flying saucer on this page; I (and hopefully others) called it 25P3H1V0.2 for a long time and it would only cause confusion to rename it otherwise. blobfish too.)
