### Suggested LifeWiki edits

Since edits on the wiki are still limited to accounts with the "trusted" flag, and since there's often some delay between new editors' request for the flag and it being granted, I thought it might be good to have a thread where people can suggest edits to the wiki, so that someone who's already able to edit the wiki can do them.

So, here it is!
• If you have any edits you'd like to see made, post 'em below. Please identify the page, and tell us exactly what you'd like changed.
• If you are able to edit the wiki and want to help out by implementing these edits: GOOD! Please take the usual care when editing, and don't feel compelled to make edits if you're not comfortable doing so.
If you speak, your speech must be better than your silence would have been. — Arabian proverb

It would show a better scope of the rulespace that it covers in my opinion. I and wildmyron manage the 5S project, which collects all known spaceship speeds in Isotropic Non-totalistic rules. Things to work on: - Find a (7,1)c/8 ship in a Non-totalistic rule - Finish a rule with ships with period >= f_e_0(n) (in progress) Apple Bottom Posts: 1027 Joined: July 27th, 2015, 2:06 pm Contact: ### Re: Suggested LifeWiki edits AforAmpere wrote:Should pattern min and max rules be updated to Non-totalistic rules? It would show a better scope of the rulespace that it covers in my opinion. This would break the "number of rules" calculation as it's currently done, at the very least. Perhaps we could keep totalistic and non-totalistic rules separate in the infoboxes, or integrate the min/max non-totalistic rules a pattern will work in into the article text instead.

For example, emulating Turing-complete structures via filling a CA with a periodic oscillating pattern (, which tiling is altered on a finite part only to not become fully periodic - ) yields that the automaton itself is logically universal. So such emulations (like embedding Rule-110 (or referred as W110) as I did many times) has this corollary. In some well-known outer-totalistic life-like CA, at least for some promoted ones, I'd be glad if the patterns or deeplinks could be inserted into Unit cell article. The same applies to patterns included with Golly Topics: The last is somehow a cuckoo-egg, it is a CGoL-pattern, but also fully compatible with 3 other outer-totalistic rules. And it is Glider-less, and just like the alien rules' W110 emulations, contains only a very small number of component types and reactions.

There are some odd rules that went terribly "out of fashion" with their own pages (like Goat Flock, for instance). They tend not to be miraculously different rules from, say, Movostill 3, for which many interesting turners and conduits have already been developed. So here is my question: does a rule like* Movostill 3 deserve its own page as of now? * Guns, conduits, sufficient unique behaviour and/or well-explored complexity, shows unequivocal potential for future discoveries either for conduit-construction (UC) or for other reasons.

My gut feeling is that a rule has attracted a nominal level of interest and investigation in the Life/CA community, it can get a page of its own. Of course the main focus of the LifeWiki is Conway Life -- but a single page for different rules that sums up the most important results, lists the most important patterns etc. should be fine. Just my 2 bits, of course.

It seems that rowett made a mistake and the "alife" rule in LifeViewer is actually B3/S234w and not B3/S234iw.

EDIT: Wait seriously ninja'd by 2 minutes?

Thanks both for reporting. This is fixed and will be in the next released build.

Should we have a page for every single still life under 14 or 17 cells?
