If you wanted to put in Brownie flesh freezing point....erm, I seriously have no idea.  I imagine them to be quite susceptible to cold, but that's because they have such a high about of skin to loose cold through compared to inner volume to produce heat.  Maybe their normal body temperature is naturally lower?  

But freezing points....what do you think?

typically small things freeze sooner: (Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the atoms, so the less molecules there are to slow, the easier to freeze it)

There is only one question I would like to ask: Does this temperature measurements (after acceptation) will work similar as in real world (not in Santharia)?

I don't understand what you are trying to ask either, Lionhorse.  You need to rephrase or rewrite your question because although your words are English, they are arranged in such a way that your 'question' does not make grammatical sense.  We're not trying to be picky and deliberately misunderstand you - there are plenty of non-native English writers on these boards and our mandate is to help and critique and edit positively - but really, your question does not convey meaning.

Let me try to guess, however, and give some information:

It's a measurement system.  And yes, it works like any other measurement system, on Earth or Barsoom or Santharia.   It's used to give a range of 'benchmarks' so that people have numbers to match with certain levels of cold or heat.  Instead of saying 'it's cold enough to freeze water' you can now say 'It's zero periks out there!"   When alchemists are performing their euxperi (experiments), they can now with greater accuracy say 'heat to 50 periks' instead of 'the same heat as when iron begins to blush pinkish-red'.    1 perik on Santharia is roughly the same as 10 degrees on Earth.  Hope that answers whatever you were asking!

Judy, that is celsius, isn't it? As in one perik equals ten celsius.

Bump: must finish this and get it ready for canon acceptance.  Regrettably, this important developer's tool has languished for years in limbo.  My apologies: the units of temperature measurement will soon join the other official measurements for developers' use!

Yeah, would be great to finally get an entry up here, Judy! Because as long as an entry is not on site, we cannot really point people to it, and we'd have to ask them to dig through the Forum to find that information, and besides it could still change if the entry isn't finished. So whenever there's a chance to get something finished, let's try to make that effort!  thumbup

I have made some additions (marked in yellow) and some unmarked edits for fluency and structure.   To the best of my knowledge there was no difficulty with the concept or the execution of the measurement units; therefore I propose that this be integrated into the  http://www.santharia.com/standards/measures_and_weights.htm
entry exactly as all the other measurements are.

I suggest formatting it as follows:  the introductory text in a smaller font size and italics, then the introduction

"Temperature Measure is used to measure heat and cold, for describing climate, in alchemical applications, and for cookery. The standard of measurement is called a 'perik' after its inventor, and its main benchmarks are the freezing and boiling points of ordinary freshwater.  The details of this measure can be summarized as follows:"

should appear exactly as the other headings for the other measurements do, in Cataneo BT, followed by the five tables, in tabular form.  Thus:

Measures of Heat
Measures of Cold
Colours of Hot Iron / Colours of Forge Flames (perhaps these two could simply go side-by-side in one table of four columns)
Melting Points of Common Metals

Good to see this one saved, and I'm happy to put it up the way it is now :D

Smaller font size and italics for the introductory text... -might look a bit strange with all the different formats we have on the page (table is also a different font, also the header), but still the best option I guess that makes it possible to integrate. At any rate I think I'll update the tables to the more stylish looking History tables design in the process of integrating this, then we have that done as well. Cause right now I notice that the table headers don't look as they should e.g. in Firefox, so there's need to fix that anyway. And the old tables are, well, somewhat old.

Thanks for doing the final touches on this one, Judy, aura +1 for an important job well done!

No, thank YOU, dear sage, for understanding what I was going on about.  Tabulating all the measurements again will make that a very stylish page.  Where will you put this - just added on at the end of the existing measurements?

Oh, and a fast-link at the top so people can see at a glance that 'Temperature' is also one of the measurements included in the entry, right?

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
