Why isn't my edit and/or photo listed?

Richard,

I don't generally reply to issues where photos have been approved for user gallery only (as this one has), as there are too many and we really don't have time to explain every decision. Also people get upset when we criticise, but in your case:

a) The photo is of a common mineral, we have many similar photos.
b) The photo is not sharp and a little grainy - I think the quality of your camera is the problem here, are you using a video camera or a very old digital camera?
c) The locality is very general and doesn't give an accurate source for the mineral.

None of these things are problems for photos in your user gallery, but these together make it impossible for us to select this to show up on the Apophylite-(KF) page.

I apologize. I misunderstood the use of this thread. I do appreciate you taking the time to answer my question and I respect your input.

b) I am using an older 2.1mp camera and I didn't realize the photo's were grainy.
c) I actually purchased this specimen from a company in India and the only location description I got was the Deccan Plateau, Maharashtra, India.

I am a novice and I will not even pretend to know all or most of what makes a mineral specimen unique or interesting. Thanks again for letting me know and thank you for this great site and outstanding resource.

Kind Regards, Richard

"User Only" photo? Did I miss this option?

That's part of the managers rating/quality control option.

Greetings
I am frustrated. I have an article I wanted to publish about Westerly Granites RI USA, but when I paste it on the new article page, submit an message says I am not connected to the website. I tried to submit the article jsut to see how the photos were laid out in the page. in the past I remember I was able to do this. ans resubmit, but alas. I cant get the article to go. THen on my home page the article are listed according to the headings and can't be opened. Is this because the articel is being reviewed?
Then I tried connecting to Chat for some help. But I couldn't. The page said I may need java so I down loaded it. Still couldn't connect.

is it that I am using WIFI and that I need a better connection? I have been down loading new localities and photos though.
If my article is not up to reveiw I would like to know too.

Hey, to change the subject
Happy New Year and happy trails of collecting. Health and Peace.

Don't use the forward slash in the title. It messes things up.

You get logged out if there is more than about 25 minutes with no activity. It is a good idea to check in another tab to make sure you are still logged in.

David

thank you so much. It was the forward slash. It is always the little details that can get you every time!
Because I had the forward slash in my title it would not go through. Bingo!
THANKS MUCH

I hope I am listing this in the right spot, and that I am not supposed to start a new thread. Anyways, I uploaded some photos to my personal page a few days back, and they seem to have been approved. Two of my photos were of the same specimen, one of the entire piece, and one a close-up. When uploading the close-up, I chose the "Add another photo of this specimen" option, and uploaded it. However, when viewing my pictures, I don't see the close-up. There is the stacked photo icon in the heading of the original picture in my gallery, but when I go into the picture and fullscreen it, I don't seem the thumbnail of other views below. Is there something else I am supposed to do to get this working? If so, let me know. I looked through the info in this page and didn't see anything that fits. If I missed it, I apologize.

The photo link is [www.mindat.org]

Thanks-

The close-up is not approved yet.

Ah, I see, thank you Uwe. Please let me know if there is something I need to correct on it (if it has to do with the mineral composition, I will also need to correct the larger shot).

Jolyon,

Approx. three weeks ago I uploaded the NEW locality:
Calaveras River Canyon, Valley Springs area, Calaveras Co., California, USA.

Shortly after I uploaded two photos to the locality:

[www.mindat.org]
[www.mindat.org]

Both of the photos are on my homepage, but neither are added yet to the locality.
Should I try and re-upload?

Thanks in advance, Jake

Have manually cleared cache of the locality page - now photos are present.

Many thanks, Uwe!
I will now prepare a larger batch of specimens for photography!

Hello !
Excuse me if my English is bad.
I upload aphoto of stellerite from Felskinn - Wallis - Zwitserland and i add "stellerite" in "mineral list" but we can't see it.
I would like to know why ?
It's the first time that we can see this mineral from this area. Nobody speak about it.
It's a pity that it is hidden. If you consider that my image is bad then don't show it. But indicated the name of this mineral in the list would be a good thing.
Thank you in advance,


Cédric

Hi Cédric,
you had uploaded a photo with stellerite from this locality - I had sent an email inquiry via Mindat, asking if this stellerite is analysed. Unless this is clarified we can't approve stellerite for the mineral list.
Approval takes some time anyway (see top of this thread and the manual - [manual.mindat.org]).

Hi Uwe,
thanks for the answer, I understand.
i don't have the analyse.
I will try to do the test without distroyed the crystal. ;)

Last week I added autunite to the minerals list from the Outback quarry in Maine (http://www.mindat.org/gallery.php?loc=211817). Later I added a photo of the autunite crystals to that locality. The photo shows up on the locality page, but the mineral doesn't. Is it just a matter of refreshing the cache, or is there another problem? Thanks!

Personally collected as a reference is insufficient. We need something like Dan Fountain collection instead.

Also, for something like autunite, we would need to know how it was identified, as visual identification alone isn't enough for this mineral.

Thanks. I'll request the (admittedly crummy) picture be removed from the locality page, and I'll post it on the ID Help forum. I thought the crystal shape, color, LW & SW fluorescence, and radioactivity (which very arguably might be from some other mineral in the specimen) would be sufficient.
