However, Boytonstu, please don't post another topic like this (math related, pointless, irrelevant). You can come up with as many examples of other topics that weren't locked as you want but at the end of the day the decision is down to the Moderator(s). Not every topic that should be locked will be locked, there are a few reasons for this, some of which you may be unaware of as the reasons could be discussed over PM.

This topic itself could end up being an example of a topic that wasn't, but should've been, locked. So, from now on, Boyntonstu, keep your NSGRD topics within the guidelines. If you purposely post a topic that falls through the cracks just to prove a point, well, we'll probably lock it just to prove we can. Usually I wouldn't go out of my way to say all this but seeing as we locked a math related topic of yours yesterday for being irrelevant and then today (NZ time), you post another math related topic, I feel you're just doing it to try and prove a point.


Last math topic got locked due to no related responses. With the on going progression of spudding and advancement in building newer versions of cannons basic geometry will start playing a roll in the builds for sure.

The topic wasn't fit for the NSGRD section either. There are plenty of math tricks one can learn, none of which really belong at Spudfiles. If someone wants to learn Base 8, it can be done at Theopia.

Like I said earlier, this topic is slightly related to Spudguns. It probably wouldn't be a problem if it were all about how to use geometry to line things up etc but instead it's about an irrelevant trick to find 4 degrees without tools. Not sure how many times that will be used on spudguns unless the trick applies to 0-90 degrees and even then one can always use a $0.50c protractor.

Didn't really want to post this in the topic as we've cluttered it enough but I didn't have much choice.

There. 10" long, 4 deg angle. Oh wait, that wasn't with a ruler, paper and pencil.


That one got a chuckle from me!
One problem though, you should remove " after the 10 because units may be metric.
