Bold text== Tektites == I added a tektite angle on the article and although the technical info is accurate, tektites on the island would in most cases be formed by a meteor impact which at this point is theorized. So if anyone feels the info should be in a theory section on the article - feel free to create one. --skks 15:48, 17 April 2006 (PDT)

Rename to "Lava rocks"?

I think this should get renamed to "Lava rocks" to avoid confusion with Black Rock (the ship).    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 16:16, 17 April 2006 (PDT)


  • Delete: The wikipedia link is a helluva lot more detailed--CaptainInsano
  • Merge: merge with Island article --Peephole 17:23, 25 June 2006 (PDT)
  • Merge--Tricksterson 08:50, 26 June 2006 (PDT)
  • Keep: This is a separate topic dealing with lava rocks on the island, particularly the ones used in "S.O.S.".

  • Keep But article needs to be rewritten. Is it about the SOS rocks (an item), or about an explanation regarding magnetism in the Lost Storyline (Theory, which should be merged elsewhere). Remove all other irrelevant text.  Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk 05:10, 3 July 2006 (PDT)
    • Update: added image of Bernard's rocks, as well as a list of scenes where the volcanic coastline is apparent. Maybe it's enough to stand on its own, but magnetism in this article still could use a subheader and a dedicated chunk of text. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk 15:22, 9 July 2006 (PDT)
  • Keep: I think this is an important detail, much like electromagnetism is to the Swan, the idea of the volcano, lava rocks, hot springs could all be important to the yet visited Flame station. At any rate, its significant to the nature of the island so I think keep. However, Santa's right about the re-sort --Nickb123 (Talk) 11:56, 9 July 2006 (PDT)
  • Resut was KEEP. Adding this note later. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk 21:10, 7 December 2006 (PST)


  • Merge - The article "Black rock" already covers all of the aspects of this article. I'd redirect it to that page. -- Liz
  • Keep. It's got sufficient information on it's own to merit as a separate page.--EvilSmoke 18:01, 20 November 2006 (PST)
  • Keep Not similar enough to be compared to THE black rock, whilst not being unimportant enough to be deleted. Keep this as is DeGroot 20:55, 7 December 2006 (PST)
  • Keep Difrent than black rocks, lava rocks are specificly an object from SOS. ZEKE?(>
  • Merge Lava rocks are still an example of black rocks, and the info could easily be merged there. No point in having 2 articles that are almost identical. DeGroot, we are not talking about merging with Black Rock (ship), which is clearly a different subject. We will also keep the disambig page regardless. --PandoraX 08:00, 1 January 2007 (PST)
  • Merge There isn't any info in this article that wouldn't fit under Black rocks--Slugless 16:31, 6 February 2007 (PST)

SOS rock -Fake or real?

Basically, what the header says. Is the rock at the line fake or real? I think it's fake. --Blueeagleislander 00:31, 3 March 2007 (PST)

Adam/Eve stones?

Is there a reason the black stone from the Adam & Eve skeletons in the caves isn't mentioned here?--MJuice 08:14, 17 May 2007 (PDT)

Purpose of disambig lines in a wiki

My deletion of the inappropriate disambig line was reverted. There seems to be some confusion about the purpose of disambig lines at the top of articles. The reason they exist is not to provide extra, potentially helpful links within the encyclopedia amongst articles with vaguely similar names, but rather, to direct a searcher to an article he thought he was going to get when he typed in a phrase. A searcher arriving at this article through the search "black rocks" is not expecting to be directed to the article on the ship, which is not called that. Conversely, a disambig line at the top of Black Rock (ship) is appropriate because black rock redirects there, and a searcher looking for the article on the rocks is liable to inadvertantly end up at Black Rock (ship) through the redirect. In any event, the redirect line at the top is also unnecessary since the article for the ship is also wikilinked within black rocks. (A linguistic stickler might also note that the word "eponymous" is misused in the current disambig line.) Hope this helps, Robert K S 08:22, 31 August 2007 (PDT)
