Base-dependent ⊂ Recreational[edit]

I have rearranged the box to express this; if anyone sees any exceptions, they can always do something about it, but none of the ledes suggested that any of these classes were of interest beyond the challenge of finding their members or some satisfaction that some number has such a property. I suppose that some, such as repunits are moderately interesting polynomials, but I saw nothing to make me hesitate long. PJTraill (talk) 20:14, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

I have added repunits to the polynomials, as they are such and tie in with others. They now occur twice, but I don’t see that as a problem. PJTraill (talk) 22:58, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Pancake numbers undefined[edit]

I see that user:MagistraMundi has added Pancake number to Template:Classes_of_natural_numbers, as a link to Pancake sorting, which does not however seem to define “Pancake number”. Perhaps it would be helpful if he (or someone else) were to create the page Pancake number as a redirect to Pancake sorting#Pancake number, to ensure that that anchor refers to a definitions in that article and to link Template:Classes_of_natural_numbers to the new page. All presuming pancake numbers really are sufficiently notable! PJTraill (talk) 21:58, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

(sorry, thought I'd replied on the 25th but must've forgot to save the page) I've tried to adjust the introduction of pancake sorting so that "pancake number" is meaningful. I think they are notable: for one thing, it's counter-intuitive that they should be so hard to calculate. And if we've got vampire numbers, it's good to extend the gustatory/nutritional theme.
