Why am I limited to 3 submissions

From OeisWiki

  • If you are restricted to three submissions at a time, this is because your submissions usually require editing, and we are very short of editors.
  • Remember that all the editing is done by volunteers. We have no paid staff, and we are swamped with submissions.
  • Reasons your submissions needed editing include:
    • Unclear definition (imprecise thinking)
    • Poor English
    • Sequence was not of general interest or was not appropriate for the OEIS
    • Errors in sequence
    • Badly formatted submission, or not formatted in the OEIS style (see Style Sheet on OEIS Wiki)
    • Links or references not in correct order
    • Sequence was already in OEIS
  • Also:
    • When you give a formula or a comment, please be sure to say whether it is a conjecture (or empirical observation) or a theorem that you can prove
    • Don't argue with the editors!
  • It is strongly recommended that you look at the changes that the editors make, and learn from what they do. It is a very bad idea to repeatedly make the same errors.
  • People who submit perfectly formatted submissions do not have a limit of 3.
  • We don't like having to impose limits, and we would much rather your submissions were perfect!
