Inappropriate link removal[edit]

I do not agree with users Mannheim_34 and Ohnoitsjamie with their removal of any link to webpages hosted on a commercial website (almost any .com domain). I expressed my opinion here and here. I ask to the community: are these in your opinion links to "web pages that primarily exist to sell products or services, or to web pages with objectionable amounts of advertising"?

I don't want to start an edit war so if you agree with my point of view please restore any suitable reference removed [1] from this article. Thanks. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 22:21, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

positiv and negativ?[edit]

In the chemical classification system, there are several "correlation negativ"s and "correlation positv"s. Usually negative and positive end in e. Are negativ and positiv used in the chemical classification of meteorites, or is this just a mispelling?--Wikimedes (talk) 00:00, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Probably a spelling mistake. I was anyway thinking of removing those overly detailed listings of trace elements. The average reader of this article is not going to care about Germanium concentrations. I was thinking of redrawing a picture like this one (http://www.psrd.hawaii.edu/WebImg/ironMetGroups.gif) instead of the text. --Tobias1984 (talk) 09:54, 29 December 2012 (UTC)


Magmatic vs. non-Magmatic[edit]

Within the relevant paragraph section, we need an explanation or definition of the difference between "Magmatic" (igneous?) and "non-Magmatic" iron meteorites. Wikipedia in general seems to neglect this topic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.85.11.149 (talk) 14:00, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

We have Nonmagmatic meteorite. The subject of meteorite classification and interpretation is difficult and needs a lot more work. In general I would say that magmatic is "typical igneous" while non-magmatic really means formed by a process that does not quite look typical igneous. The literature at the bottom of Nonmagmatic meteorite should be helpful. --Tobias1984 (talk) 14:13, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
