GeneralSomeone is, again, entering WRONG DATA to mindat localities (and we know who...)

17th Jan 2020 20:34 UTCŁukasz Kruszewski Expert

* "cadmium", Ciechanowice - I've checked the literature: NO CADIUM (mineral) mentioned in the whole text; it is only mentioned as an admixture in MINERALS !

* "zinc", Boguszów-Gorce area - I won't even check the correctness, because it was added by THE SAME PERSON . .. . . 

I strongly encourage the admins to definitively cut possibilities of such activity on mindat. We do know who is in question and I will not post the name here... but the number of erroneous entries from this person activity is already rather large....  I think we can't allow for such an activity to people, who either do not find a difference between a mineral and an admixture in it or does not thoroughly check the sources mentioned. It is really irritating, especially to the ones who constantly make the mindat better & growing.
