Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 4 external links on Amber. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

☑Y An editor has reviewed this edit and fixed any errors that were found.

  • If you have discovered URLs which were erroneously considered dead by the bot, you can report them with this tool.
  • If you found an error with any archives or the URLs themselves, you can fix them with this tool.

Too many images?[edit]

Would anyone agree that this page is overloaded with images? Would it be a better to condense many of the images in a gallery leaving only the pertinent images within the article? A. Z. Colvin • Talk 22:47, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Could you preserve a human in amber[edit]

Why, or why not? This should be added. If you can't, why is it that you can with insects? Is it only the hard tissues that survive when an insect is trapped in amber? The snare (talk) 22:25, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

@The snare: The short answer is no, since there are no resin masses big enough to entomb a human or other large animal. It is already covered in concept wit the mentions of smaller reptiles, amphibians, and birds in amber.--Kevmin § 15:21, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

You couldn't just gather a large amount from lots of trees? And heat it to keep it liquid until you will use it? The snare (talk) 01:52, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 21 November 2017[edit]

Please remove the word "oriental" from the description of the scent.

Previously: "warm, musky, rich and honey-like, and also somewhat oriental and earthy." With edit: "warm, musky, rich and honey-like, and also somewhat earthy."

Thank you! 50.200.153.132 (talk) 20:01, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

 Done Thank you for catching this. CityOfSilver 20:04, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Regarding the use of the term "wastebasket" in the classifications of amber spcificaly type IV, I believe the intention is that it is something of a miscellaneous category. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1015:B125:293C:71D4:AF5A:9587:B3BA (talk) 23:08, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
