Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Cannibalism in popular culture, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Procne and Philomela (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

I replied to you at Talk:Penrose tiling#Robinson triangles. Regards. Toshio Yamaguchi (talk) 11:40, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Number theory[edit]

Hi MinorProphet - This looks very good! I'm afraid you'll have to wait for at least a week (or rather ten days or so) for further comments from me, since I am very busy with (real-life, number-theoretical) work... Garald (talk) 22:23, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Number theory[edit]

Sorry for having been out of action for so long. Your proposed edits look very good; please go ahead and carry them out. On Vardi´s comments on Archimedes - make cautious statements and reference them carefully (cite both Vardi and the works he cites); I am not sure of whether there is a consensus there.

List of alloys[edit]

What does that make cementite? Plasmic Physics (talk) 00:49, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Hmm, an interesting one. Is cementite a compound or an alloy? Does light behave like waves or particles? Technically (and to avoid a direct answer) you could call cementite an iron-carbon alloy phase. In its purest form, it is classified as a ceramic. To recap and to remind myself:
Cementite is the crystalline form of iron carbide, a hard, brittle, stoichiometric, intermetallic, metastable iron-carbon phase (or crystal structure) found in steel alloys. It has the strict chemical formula Fe3C (, unlike other iron-carbon phases which are non-stoichiometric and are formed within a range of proportions.
In eutectoid steel (Fe + 0.83 wt% C), ferrite (effectively pure iron) and cementite grow co-operatively as a lamellar mixture (or microstructure), pearlite.
In hypereutectoid steel (Fe + >0.77 wt% C) the structure is mostly pearlite with small grains of extra cementite scattered throughout.
White cast iron contains mostly monoclinic cementite with some silicon, making it very hard and brittle with limited ductility. Cementite is a metastable iron-carbon phase, and will decompose into stable graphite given the right conditions: namely, a higher silicon content and slower cooling of the molten mixture results in grey cast, containing graphite. Phase diagrams, etc. On a slight tangent, I came across this paper on Mechanical properties of cementite. > MinorProphet (talk) 19:04, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
I did further research, and found that scandium hydride in this context is a substance held together by metallic bonding. Metallic bonding is found within alloys and metals. I've also found that "compound" and "alloy" are not mutually exclusive terms. Plasmic Physics (talk) 13:45, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

The Miracle (1912 film)[edit]

Regarding your question at the Help Desk: as you've perhaps seen, the history merge that you requested is now complete. For future reference, you don't have to do this (it's fine to copy/paste something you wrote in userspace to create a new mainspace article), but of course there's also nothing wrong with moving pages or requesting history merges. Nyttend (talk) 13:58, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your helpful message, I also thanked User:Anthony_Appleyard, who did the merge. I think it was just a case of me being in a hurry, not knowing exactly what to do, and not bothering to find out. > MinorProphet (talk) 08:41, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
The subject of this article seems to be (with a few significant differences) the same film dealt with in the article Das Mirakel (1912 film). I have started a content-merge discussion at Talk:The Miracle (1912 film). Cheers!--ShelfSkewed Talk 15:55, 18 December 2012 (UTC)Yes check.svg Done

20 Frith Street[edit]

Hi, MinorProphet. Wow, just... wow. That is awesome. --Shirt58 (talk) 01:36, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Had to be done. Thank you. > MinorProphet (talk) 01:43, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

WP:NPP is often and with some justification criticised. I do NPP because I enjoy it. I love learning new stuff. Discovering jewels in the Wikipedia crown like 20 Frith Street is exactly why I find it pleasurable. Shirt58 (talk) 09:58, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Otto Rippert, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Oscar Strauss and Gaumont (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

One day I shall check every single WL in my posts... Anyway, thanks bot, 'coz Oscar Strauss was totally wrong anyway. Yes check.svg Done >MajorProphet (talk) 11:58, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
