An incomplete list[edit]

This article was created with good intentions to be a quick reference page listing all known and probable black hole stars; I will commit to clarifying and expanding this article, and I look forward to our joint effort to improve this article. Take care. ProfessorPaul (talk) 01:46, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Candidates[edit]

Candidates should be placed on List of black hole candidates. --- cymru lass (hit me up)(background check) 21:18, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Using this as a source, I'm removing black hole candidates from this page and putting them in List of black hole candidates. --- cymru lass (hit me up)(background check) 21:30, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Is it not clear that this has been done; the current list appears to contain both known black holes and potential black hole candidates. How about just dividing each list into top and bottom sections, giving known black holes at the top, and candidates at the bottom? Whatever method is chosen, teh candidates really should be separated out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.92.174.105 (talk) 00:19, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Are there actually any non-candidate black holes? As in, is there an actual technical distinction between a "candidate" and a "confirmed" black hole. As I understand it there's just degrees of evidence (and degrees of linguistic caution of writers' parts) with the most likely object contradicting models of neutron stars. After a quick google search of "Confirmed black hole" I found articles describing object also being contemporarily described as "candidates".162.218.212.1 (talk) 19:17, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

New section?[edit]

Could we incorporate a new section "black holes by distance from Sol", or include it distance in the listing? It's trivial, but I'm curious. samwaltz (talk) 03:54, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
