Village pump

This page could be the OEIS Wiki variant of Wikipedia's Village pump or Meta's Babel. For that purpose all users need immediate write access. Write-protected admin-content can be moved to the existing System Status page. –Frank Ellermann 21:55, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

This does not make sense, since Wikipedia's Village pump is completely locked/write protected! — M. F. Hasler 22:37, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

I think the community portal should receive a layout similar to (the first part of) Main_Page/Prototype. — M. F. Hasler 21:49, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

System doesn't keep me logged in

I checked the "keep me logged in" box, but the system logs me out after a few tab changes. Jon Awbrey 20:04, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Allocated A-numbers I don't need

Hi. I have the A-numbers A223172, A223173, A223174, A223175 allocated. However, I need a bigger block of consecutive A-numbers. So these can be recycled, and my changes to A223173 can be deleted. Thanks, Tilman Piesk 00:10, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Don't worry about unused A-numbers, they will be recycled automatically after some time (at least, they should). Just allocate a new block of the required size. If you happen to submit something else, you may still use the other A-numbers while they are not yet recycled (assuming you don't forget to keep that in mind and visit instead of clicking "Contribute a new sequence"). — M. F. Hasler 22:00, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

But someone else should worry, that the link "Table of n, a(n) for n=1..24." in A223173 goes to my old b-file, instead to the one generated from the sequence entry. looks like Tilman Piesk 23:37, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

RSS feed for Sequence of the Day

Is there a RSS feed for Sequence of the Day? I think it would be convenient to follow it in a newsreader.

Fun sequences

I didn't find a place for recreational sequences - these don't exactly fit to puzzle, classic or hot ones. Could you either tell me if there's one, or if not, point me to create a new page if there's demand for that? The sequence I'm thinking about is greediv (greedy division). The idea is that you go backwards summing the previous members until the sum is divisible by wanted n. Then the sum is divided by n and that becomes the new last member. Greediv2 was fully solved in A003558, but the higher n's are more elusive. Juhani Heino 09:53, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Wikidata property P829

P829 is OEIS ID, a property used on "items" (roughly, Wikimedia pages tracked by Wikidata) with a corresponding OEIS page: P829 on Wikidata. There are some tools on the P829 talk page, actually a template used on many property talk pages. One interesting link is current uses, clicking on it ends up on a form, and after some time a script displays an already edited "current OEIS ID uses" query.

Not touching anything, just clicking on the "start query" button at the lower left edge of the form, finally displays 204 items by name with their corresponding OEIS A-number. The answer can be downloaded as JSON, CSV, or SVG for further processing. Or as tiny URL of the result, here's the long URL.

The 204 labels mostly make sense, e.g., "Prouhet–Thue–Morse constant" has OEIS ID value A014571. This row begins with a link to wd:Q2994918. The Q2994918 page shows various claims or statements known by Wikidata. In their terminology any claim with a reference is a statement. All (=5 in this example) Wikipedias with a page about Q2994918 are listed (da, en , es, fr, zh). –Frank Ellermann 09:46, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

FWIW they have a Wikidata:WikiProject_Mathematics, but attempts to find volunteers for something you want to be done by somebody else are almost always doomed. :-P –Frank Ellermann 06:29, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Pending edit requests

If {{edit request}} is put on the talk page of a protected page, the talk page is added to tracking category:Protected items with edit request, a child (sub-category) of category:OEIS Wiki maintenance. Most pending edit requests were created in 2011, some resolved in 2016, and I disabled or removed {{edit request}} for all apparently resolved issues.

About ten requests still need somebody with the elevated rights (= admin) to resolve the remaining ten pending requests; or to reject the request (= disable template + state why the request was a bad idea, but apart from one not really critical suggestion to get a nicer list of sequences deleted from 1996-2010 the other pending requests are valid from my PoV.)

In one case I disabled {{edit request}}, because the page is not protected, but something else is broken: The vintage 2010 draft OEIS_Wiki_clock looks good, shouldn't it show up somewhere (another tracking category) as a pending draft? Another oddity is Template_talk:Index_Section_List, user group "autoconfirmed" does not exist, and therefore a missing section Rec cannot be added to the index without admin/bot/editor help.Frank Ellermann 05:16, 18 October 2017 (UTC) Updated: 03:22, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
