Section names[edit]

It's probably intended to keep material strictly chronological but the section names discourage this as the tendency is to add some new material to the section whose title it seems to relate to. (as I now realise I did earlier)

Should we add dates to the section names to encourage new material to be added chronologically ? Rod57 (talk) 02:48, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Tesla?[edit]

What does Tesla's 1900 patent have to do with superconductivity? He's not mentioned in the main article. Długosz (talk) 22:32, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Wroblewski and Olszewski[edit]

The start of the article made some questionable claims about participation in the discovery of superconductivity by Zygmunt Florenty Wroblewski and Karol Olszewski . The nature of the claims sounded dubious, reminiscent of Soviet-era propaganda claims of priority on any number of discoveries, so I tried to find anything authoritative on the subject. Came up empty. Tracked down the addition a series of changes by a Tesla fan in May 2015, and removed the sentence and phrase in question. If anyone can find a legitimate citation, we'll undo my removal. Tarl N. (discuss) 00:57, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
