the former polygon rim/border, in this case a hexagon at a straight angle
when you expand the series with new vertices?

Jonas - remember that when you communicate with other people, they only get
what you write and not all the thoughts that are just in your head. So you
have to write enough so that others can understand you, just from the words
you write. Perhaps it would help if you play a little "game" before you hit
send, where you imagine you are a complete stranger who is going to read
your communication - try to work out what the stranger will make of your
words, bearing in mind he doesn't know all the thoughts you were thinking
when you wrote them... (Also, the stranger does not know what you've been
doing lately, and if you're looking at a picture of something when you
write, the stranger is unable to see that picture...)
