Phantom quartz[edit]

I have a gemstone question for you: does phantom quartz come ever in a silver or grey colour? Thanks Black Falcon! Venustar84 (talk) 17:14, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't know much about minerals. You may have more luck at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Geology. -- Black Falcon (talk) 19:37, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

List of specialist schools[edit]

I see your comment below on the AfD page, and I agree about making a list article. Can you do this now, before the category is gone?--DThomsen8 (talk) 14:17, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Listify to List of specialist schools or to multiple lists of schools by field of specialization. A temporary administrative designation (typically 5-10 years since the program did not really take off until the early 2000s) is not a particularly defining characteristics of these schools; these details are appropriate for a stand-alone list but less so as a basis for categorization. -- Black Falcon (talk) 18:42, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Hello there, a proposal regarding pre-adminship review has been raised at Village pump by Anna Frodesiak. Your comments here is very much appreciated. Many thanks. Jim Carter through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:46, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Appears to be an error[edit]

All major news outlets are reporting that the Malaysian flight was shot down, and there is a consensus to post that fact. There is not going to be an "official" finding for months or years. The ITN criteria is to follow the reliable sources. Please reverse your edit or I will do so on your behalf should you be unavailable to reply, as this is a very timely matter that should not linger. Thank you. Jehochman Talk 00:00, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

It looks like you've been offline for about 5 hours and might not return for a while, so I've proceeded to update the blurb. All major, reliable news reporting says that the plane was shot down. We should not yet say who did the shooting, though the reports and theories are going to be covered in the article. Please discuss with me before reverting. Please feel free to email me for urgent attention. Thanks. Jehochman Talk 00:07, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for notifying me, but your statement is incorrect: some major news sources (such as NYT) are reporting that MH17 was shot down and some (such as BBC) are reporting that MH17 is suspected to have been shot down. I have responded to your comment at WP:ITN/C so that we can try to keep the discussion in one place. Thanks, -- Black Falcon (talk) 00:53, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Sockpuppet issue[edit]

Hi. If you get this message before any blocks are doled out, could you perhaps have a quick look at this SPI and see what you think should be done as a result of the finding? I think all the relevant info is well summarized there. I am involved in the discussion in which a sock was recently used the single time, so I shouldn't be doing anything administrative there. The sock should obviously be blocked, but not sure what should be done with the "puppeteer" in this case. Good Ol’factory (talk) 00:43, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Uh, never mind, as it's gotten more complex. The users are now both claiming that they have nothing to do with one another. Previously I thought it was just going to be a straightforward case of a user foolishly using a sock one time to bolster one of his positions, but clearly this is going somewhere else, so I won't ask you to become involved (unless of course you are keen).
