RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Talk:Ionised jewellery

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Wider still and wider[edit]

Shouldn't this article be called "magic jewellery" as it already covers far more than just ionised. Then Ionised Jewellery and Copper Bracelets can be redirects. Oh, and then we can add crystals - although that is covered in Crystal healing. Hmm. that's a see also. Cloud Yeller (talk) 16:07, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Which topics are also covered that have nothing to do with ionised? It would be better if we kept a focus on the "ionised" part. Otherwise we'd have to remove the bit about the ionised shirts as well. Nullahnung (talk) 16:20, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Copper bracelets? Magnetic Bracelets? The woo meisters consider these different. From one of the web sites
Although ionized bracelets are similar to copper jewelry that has been used for centuries to ward off the effects of arthritis, the two are not the same.
I fail to see how an article that conflates ionised jewellery with copper bracelets shouldn't also cover all "magic" jewellery. Cloud Yeller (talk) 16:33, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
I attempted to make it so there's merely a comparison to copper bracelets, which hold their power according to folklore and so are technically something not quite in the same category, and not a conflation. Additionally, if "magnetic jewellery" is not conflated by the woo-pushers with ionised jewellery, then we should cut the section about magnetic field therapy, because that is sufficiently covered already in the magnetic field therapy article.

Aaaand I've gone ahead and done it. Nullahnung (talk) 17:09, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm new here, and I'm trying to learn how things are done, but I totally agree with all your comments, I just had to see this rubbish rationalised, so I released it upon Rationalwiki.
I'm not sure how this 'talk' page works, so I'm just gonna edit it with my thoughts and see what happens.
There's also something called 'Hologram therapy' that ties into this, so add that as a see also with a seperate page. :) Lennybogart (talk) 00:32, 8 August 2014 (UTC)Lennybogart
Actually, this entire thing needs an overhaul already. I will do so tomorrow if I have time. All the seperate bits and bobs of jewellery need categorising properly. The list is- Ionised jewellery (half done), Copper bracelets and hologram bracelets, Lennybogart (talk) 00:42, 8 August 2014 (UTC)Lennybogart

"Citation Needed"[edit]

It seems someone has replaced the links to the footnotes section with "citation needed". Did someone vandalize this article? Towards-the Unknown (talk) 21:47, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Can you find the revision before those changes you described? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 22:04, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for my late reply @LeftyGreenMario. This is the revision before the CN replacement. Towards-the Unknown (talk) 01:15, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
Here's the diff; not wandalism. —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 02:26, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
@Towards-the Unknown I don't see any edits like that except a general "sources needed" addition (not a replacement as you described. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 04:24, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
