Welcome to Wikidata, Yuanga!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards! --Chris.urs-o (talk) 05:36, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Sulfosalt mineralsEdit

Hello Yuanga
Sulfosalt minerals, broad sense got redefined (2008)
Mineral groups, strict sense got redefined (2009); group members have the same crystal system now (most of the time)

Changed English label: xenotimeEdit

Hello Yuanga. About your edit, changing English label: xenotime-Y to xenotime. Do not change the English labels. The English labels on Wikidata follow IMA-CNMNC Master List of Valid Minerals. Later, items for mineral series and polytypes should be created. Thx, regards --Chris.urs-o (talk) 08:11, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Sorry Chris.urs-o! I did it because it was the easeist way to fix the mixed articles: xenotime and xenotime-(Y). For me was easiest move two articles to a newest "xenotime-(Y)" and not 15 or 16 articles to "xenotime". What should I do now? --Yuanga (talk) 15:29, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Let me think. The problem is not this one but all the others. I do not have the time to create all the items. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 16:25, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Ok Chris.urs-o, if I can help in anything just write me! --Yuanga (talk) 16:27, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

I can't promise anything. If I find enough time I will try. --Yuanga (talk) 20:54, 28 March 2019 (UTC)


Hello Yuanga. Liddicoatite is a hypothetical mineral, no type material is available yet. Most liddicoatites are fluor-liddicoatite, but Aurisicchio et al. (1999) and Breaks et al. (2008) materials are OH-dominant. Regards --Chris.urs-o (talk) 06:02, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Chris.urs-o! --Yuanga (talk) 09:21, 12 January 2020 (UTC)
