Why does it say 0% of your goal Edit

it is soooooo weird and cool you have like 400 pages why is that? 123chess456 07:53, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

That was put there as a joke. 450 pages is only a very tiny fraction of the googol, which, when rounded, is about 0% of our "goal," which is one googol pages. Of course, to make even 1% of the goal, I'm going to need almost more space than there exists in the known universe.
As for having 450 pages, that is a result of the unimaginable creativity and devotion of Jonathan Bowers. Nearly half of the pages are Jonathan-Bowers-numbers. Followed by 100 zeroestalkcontribs 14:04, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh, well then make more pages, numbers etc 123chess456 18:50, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Probably even if you have blank pages counted. 17:07, November 15, 2017 (UTC)

Yay! Edit

Wikia crapped on our main page :< FB100Ztalkcontribs 17:45, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Main page jokes Edit

Since not a whole lot of people read this wiki with really serious intent, and googology is a whimsical study anyway, it's okay if we joke around on the Main Page a bit, as evidenced by the Article Count Progress and the brand-new GoogolNews. FB100Ztalkcontribs 03:32, December 13, 2012 (UTC)

Now we have a German Googology Wiki, how about requesting an interlanguage link? — I want more clouds! 02:30, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

Why not? FB100Ztalkcontribs 02:34, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

No edits?Edit

there are no edits in the main page for few months, can add some content? the more users edit the page, the better it is. JiawhienIsBackNoEvadeBlockOnceAgainIComeBack (talk) 07:08, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Unless you have something specific in mind, there's no real point in editing the page. FB100Ztalkcontribs 07:07, November 18, 2013 (UTC)
Why doesn't someone replace the 99.99999 ... 99999% with 0.00000 ... 00003% to give an approximation of the actual progress. Sbiis Saibian (talk) 23:37, April 1, 2014 (UTC)

That was there for like...five and a half years? It needed an update. you'! 16:30, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
I'd be absolutely fine if that didn't change. LittlePeng9 (talk) 16:51, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
So, by the law of contrapositives: if you're not absolutely fine, it did change? you'! 04:49, May 27, 2014 (UTC)
Yes. But I am absolutely fine, so that implies nothing. LittlePeng9 (talk) 05:08, May 27, 2014 (UTC)

I love how one commenter asked if any are bigger than Graham's number. Of course some are - w+1 in the fast growing hierarchy is fucking tiny. WikiRigbyDude (talk) 13:35, August 31, 2014 (UTC)
Since a lot of people think of "Graham's Number" as the essential large number, I think that we should clarify on a bunch of pages that we've exceeded it. Imagine a random visitor popping into our page on SCG without much background... you'! 21:47, August 31, 2014 (UTC)

more arrows Edit

seriously though you can't just raise googology to itself wiki times King2218 (talk) 09:26, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

Smart aleck

I initially tried to change the L into an arrow, but with the surrounding O's it looked too much like a penis. you'! 19:35, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

Criteria for considering a function is finished or abandoned. Edit

A function is considered finished if it has not been worked on by the creator for at least a year. A function is considered abandoned if it is still work in progress and has not been worked by the creator on for a year.

how can you convert {A,B,C (1) 2} to {?,? (1) 2} ? Edit

how can you convert {A,B,C (1) 2} to {?,? (1) 2} ?

We use the rule {A, B, C (1) 2} = {A, {A, B-1, C (1) 2}, C-1 (1) 2}. So for example,
{A, 4, 2 (1) 2} = {A, {A, 3, 2 (1) 2}, 1 (1) 2} = {A, {A, {A, 2, 2 (1) 2}, 1 (1) 2} (1) 2} = {A, {A, {A, {A, 1, 2 (1) 2}, 1 (1) 2} (1) 2} (1) 2} = {A, {A, {A, A (1) 2} (1) 2} (1) 2}. Deedlit11 (talk) 05:58, February 28, 2016 (UTC)
