Separate Discussion Area For Synthetics & Simulants?

Recommended Posts

We'll go with The Manmade Rock, and then I'll endeavor to put together a description. I have a few other things I need to do this weekend but if I have time I'll start the new forum and move all relevant threads to the new forum.

It's done.

 

Feedback?

 

Any volunteers to write a nice, comprehensive post that clearly defines "simulants" vs. "synthetics" and other confusing issues, once and for all, so we can get people at least talking in the same language? I'll "pin" and "lock" such a post at the top of the forum, for the world to see into eternity.

Oh dear - that last bit worries me a little... It sounds like something out of Dante's Inferno (or Prometheus?)

 

I'll write something this afternoon EST, post it here and let others vet and add, then can copy and paste into the eternal post.

Ok - it took me a while. I have posted it in the Syn & Sym area chunked out by topic under a new thread called Draft Definitions:

 

Definition of 'Synthetic' and 'Simulant'

Synthetic Diamond Production Methods

Common Diamond Simulants

 

See what you think, and make comments/edits where you feel it's necessary. Hermann - once you think it's "ready", change the title and/or copy/paste what you deem worthy of preservation into the sticky thread.

 

Cheers.

Hermann,

 

Being a lay person I really do like "The Manmade Rock". I think it is catchy and fits in with the theme of the website.

Brilliantly done! Thank you!

 

I went ahead and pinned it to the top and closed it to further posts to keep spammers from taking advantage of the preferred placement.
