We have a vandal problem. A huge vandal problem.
So this anonymous user shows up and starts inserting HUGE amounts of profane content in various pages including one of my subpages.
And the worst thing is, this vandal is more persistent than most - he seems to be reverting some edits that reverted his vandalisms.
Someone please ban him, it's getting REALLY annoying.Read more >
Recently, nearly every day, some guy creates many unsourced pages. Some of the numbers he creates pages about actually exist (and are usually fixed to add sources, which the person doesn't add), while some are not defined anywhere and are deleted.
My feelings about him are mixed - on one hand he is creating pages for numbers that have red linke pointing to them for some time, on the others he doesn't seem to understnad the rules. And he doesn't seem to be going away - every time he gets blocked, he shows up under a new name a day or two later. I have tried to tell him how to add sources on at least two occasions a while ago, but both times he ignored me (or at least didn't respond on that talk page).
So, I think we need to do something about…Read more >
This is my attempt to define UNAN for non-integer values of the base and iterator. (I'm not going to try with numbers inside the brackets.)
I was partly inspired by PsiCubed's letter notation, which some of the definitions I used are based on.
note: a[#]b is always increasing only for a > 2. For a e1/e. For smaller values of a, the tetration is generally known to either converge or alternate between 0 and 1. I haven't looked into what happens for pentation and higher, but I'm fairly sure for a > 1 it will still be an increasing function, just converging to one number.
Two-entry arrays with the first entry in the brackets > 0 expand similar to the last rule above. Now, we just need to handle cases of type a[0,n]b.
- a[0,n+1]b = a[1,n]ab for 0 < b …

I was seeing badges on some other wikis and just thought of some potential ideas here to make things more interesting.
On other wikis, there are some badge lists for making x amount of edits on pages in a specific category. So, I was thinking we could do it for the numbers / notations category, and even more specific, like making x edits on 'Numbers by Sbiis Saibian" or "NUmbers by Jonathan Bowers" or whatever badge sets.
I think adding a few of these badge tracks would make people work harder to make pages. To be honest, I have gained at least one of most of the main badges, and now most of mine are just periodically passing another 500 on edits or 250 on categories. But everyone else can earn these too. However, I don't think they will ret…Read more >
THanks to a certain Denis Maksudov, we now have 10 thousand pages on this wiki.
THe 10000th page was teterto-tethrahexon, an xE^ number.
Nice work. Maybe we'll make a few more pages in the next few days.Read more >
