Hey Syu, am i become an admin l8r or no (in the nice way lol : P) Scottman108

About your edits.. I feel that on your second edit on the Mohs Scale that the added link shall be deemed irrelivant. We don't even have a faldspar page yet. If you created one we could actually have use for said link. Not to worry. Will and I are starting to work on feldspar. We should have it done by thursday at the latest, pictures included. Please do not edit until we finished with our work. ---Armyleader36

Hi syugecin! (for the 3rd time) Scottman108

Syu, the pic of Malachite on the malachite page is my picture! My dad had a piece of it polished somewhere as a gift, so I uploaded it and I hope you will give me extra credit. Runescapehelperperson 01:27, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Hey Syu, how many more edits until Runescapehelperperson and I can bcome admins? Scottman108

Syu Great News!!! I found my old rock collection so now I am going to try to find the rest and take pictures. Then I can upload more pictures like flourite, hemetite, and jasper & we can use them on the wiki real soon!!! Armyleader36

another thing. how do I tell how many edits I have? I want to keep track. my tally-mark system failed when my sharpie burst into ink and my shirt went from white to black in 4 seconds...

Requesting adminshipEdit

syu, I am requesting adminship for myself, I think that I have done a considerable amount of edits and I think that i'm mature enough to handle this privelage. Runescapehelperperson

And i support him in his "journey" to become an admin. Scottman108

Okie Dokie then. Syu


Ty so much syu! I've been dreaming of this moment for a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! Runescapehelperperson 00:09, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi Alex! It's me, I got an accnt! (Its PJ by da way) its Rspker741. I already made some pages! Hope ya like em! Rspker741

Also requesting adminshipEdit

Syugecin, as Rshelperperson said, I think that I have done a considerable amount of edits, and I now know what I should do on the wiki. Thanks. Scottman108


I (scottman108) am wondering if we should add a pronunciation in the info box to the right of the screen. This could help the popularity of the website because then people would not only know about rocks, but they could pronounce them correctly. Thanks. Scottman108

I agree, this is a good change. The wiki seems to have problems with some of the pages having pronunciation guides and others not, so we should try to remedy this ASAP. Also, how shall we present words with multiple prunciations? Take Quaternary for instance... I've heard a lot of different geologists pronounce it different ways. Matt
I, User:Armyleader36Talk, agree with scottman as he came up with the idea when he miss pronounced opal. I think that his idea of ending mispronunciation of rocks/mineral/geology related topics in our wiki is a good one and should be a short term goal for future edits as a project.
That's an idea, I'll add a luster and specific gravity too. Syu

hey syu, nice icon for the website!! Runescapehelperperson 03:59, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

no problem. Runescapehelperperson

Wiki Formatting and other BusinessEdit

Hey - I don't know if you've noticed, but when not logged in the geology wiki has a really cluttered template with lots of ad type things. I'm planning on changing the default theme to Monobook - any problems with that? Matt

I've been looking into it - might not be possible actually. The forums on the main Wikia site seem to indicate that this power has been revoked from wikia admins, and the default is set to that gaudy thing. I'm heading abroad to study glaciers next week, and I'll be gone for a few months so if I can't figure it out in the next week, want to give it a crack? Cheers - Matt

Yeah - something like "try to keep as many internal links as possible, a policy on original research (which I'm fine with, because we could have discussions on the talk pages about new research...) no plagiarism, complete topics should have x, y, z..." etc? What was the failure? The actual page creation? Sounds like a good idea. Matt

Syu, I think that we should have a stub template to help contribute more information to articles. Runescapehelperperson 03:12, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Yo, I'm back from Baja California, Mexico. Crazy geology down there. I might write up something about it. Anyway, have you noticed that a lot of pages using the infobox_Rock template have their content pushed down by half of a paragraph? I'm trying to figure out why, because pages such as Mountain Head (New Brunswick) that are using Infobox_mountain don't have that problem. Is it maybe because the infobox is too tall? There doesn't seem to be any HTML in the template itself that is throwing this off... ### Nevermind, I just fixed it. I put a valign="top" with the table attributes and it seemed to do the trick. Cheers! Matt PS. I think I just figured out how to switch the site back to Monobook. Yay!

Close - you're very observant! It's something I had to come up with for an e-mail account someplace. I commonly use "matter" places now, but the R is my last name. Ha!

Whats with the numbers by your name in recent changes Edit

see headline, and why is that? it said 2x then went to 8x. i don't get that also, hi

RE:RE:Numbers Edit

oh u mean add tildes to the comments? {{SUBST:Template:Signatures/Armyleader36}} 22:26, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

quick question Edit

how often do the editcounts update? i think its every hour, but I was hoping you might know. Also, we have so many unused pictures and i figured out how to use them other than in infoboxes! =) example is on tectonic plates

Hey, can you tell me when we reach 500 pages? we really need to expand our articles. --Runescapehelperperson| 19:33, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Templates Edit

How do you create a Template? I seem to be running into some trouble creating a template. I would like to know how you make a template, the steps involved, and anything else that would be helpful for creating a template.

thanks, Armyleader36Mailbox 01:52, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Vandalism Edit

Hey Syu, I wanted to let you know i reverted vandalism by an anonymous user using an IP address, you can see it on gypsum's history. It said it was made on the 28th, but it didn't register under recent changes even before i rolled it back. Anyways, I think they should get a warning not to do that again. I would do it myself but I haven't the authority to administer a warning or a ban. Just letting you know about this. --Armyleader36Mailbox 19:47, 29 March 2009 (UTC) Also, Enjoy your spring break!

Graduation Edit

Syu, I honestly think that Jason can be an admin already. He's got the most active user so far and he's pretty dedicated. I think he's ready to be contacted by User:Angela. Runescapehelperperson| 00:05, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Chemical Compound Edit

Why do none of the mineral pages have the chemical compound? --Quaffle4 05:37, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Elements Edit

Is the wiki just for compounds and minerals or elements as well? I am something of an expert on chlorine and am wondering whether or not it needs a page... --Quaffle4 03:38, November 9, 2009 (UTC)
