Picture[edit]

There are no pictures of standard tall thin tapers. This should be fixed. —Ben FrantzDale (talk) 16:57, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Heat Characteristics Inconsistency[edit]

Under the characteristics section, one portion mentions that a candle emits 80 watts of heat typically while later on, the article mentions 50 BTU which translates roughly to 14.7 watts. This should be fixed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iamthemik3 (talkcontribs) 04:39, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Torbanite[edit]

A type of oil shale i.e. torbanite has been heard of as being used as a taper/candle light source directly. They said it was used to light an inn at Hartley Vale, NSW. Was there a special holder and how does it compare for light output? The book 'The Burning Mists of Time' written about mining at Katoomba, NSW may have more on this.

Candle clock in coal mines[edit]

This has had a {{cn}} flag since December 2011. With the history of coal mine explosions caused by naked flames, and the drive throughout the 19thC to eradicate flames, it is highly unlikely that candle clocks were used in collieries in the 20thC. I cannot believe that the legislative or regulatory framework would permit such a thing in the developed world. The main page Candle clock makes no reference to this practice. If anyone can come up with a reliable citation I would be very interested to see it, and the statement could (only then) be re-instated. Martin of Sheffield (talk) 21:34, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on Candle[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on Candle which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.
