What the hell is a "3" in base 3 or "base Pi"?

That is probably not right -- I just made a wild guess
Don't have the free time to work it all out.

So you're saying 1.0 in base Pi is this many "0"
So you're saying 2.0 in base Pi is this many "0 0"
So you're saying 3.0 in base Pi is this many "0 0 0"
How many is "10.0" in base Pi??

As I explained to you before, in base 3, you count 1, 2, 10
That is 1.0 = This many "0"
That is 2.0 = this many "0 0"
That is 10.0 = this many "0 0 0"
So you count 1, 2, 10
There is no "3" in base 3. In base 3, this many "0 0 0" is a "1" in the "Threes" place, and it looks like this: 10.0

You additionally change the base when you use a placeholder. The symbol you’re using is zero as a placeholder.

Pi
"Pi" is not a number. "Pi" is a symbol, or word, used to represent a number compared to 1, which is a ratio.

As I explained to you before, in base 3 the numbers are 0,1,2, that's it. The numbers used in different positions to the left and right of a point. Each position has a meaning. Different bases have different meanings for the same place.
10 in base 10 is this many "0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0"
10 in base 6 is this many "0 0 0 0 0 0"
Same numbers, a 1 and a 0, in the same place in reference to the point. They are both 10.0.
The difference is that each of those places mean different quantities. So 10.0 in base 6 means "0 0 0 0 0 0" whereas a 10.0 in base 10 means "0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0"

What you don't seem to comprehend is that "pi" is not a "1" in the the x position relative to the point: X0.0.
If you think there is such a thing as "Pi.12" then you must think there is a thing such as 123.pi1212.. Right?
Do you think there is a "12pi31.21"??

Decimal places are not used in the symbol set that uses \(\pi\)

Wikipedia wrote:The number π (/paɪ/; spelled out as "pi") is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, approximately equal to 3.14159. The number π appears in many formulas across mathematics and physics. It is an irrational number, meaning that it cannot be expressed exactly as a ratio of two integers, although fractions such as 22/7 are commonly used to approximate it. Consequently, its decimal representation never ends, nor enters a permanently repeating pattern. It is a transcendental number,
