A general guide for using the Forum with some rules and tips

 

What is the purpose of this forum?

I created this Forum with the idea of creating a place to share questions and answers with other mineral enthusiasts and, most importantly, to try to provide a serious space where mineralogy questions can be discussed free of bothersome errors, free due the high standards of the administrators and moderators. We owe much of the success of this Forum to their fine texts; with them helping us, our Forum looks "clean" at least in terms of its scientific content.

During my mineralogical journeys I frequently receive mail asking many different questions. When I answered just the person who sent the message, I always had the feeling of something being lost. By publishing all these questions and answers on the Forum, others can share our thoughts about minerals and mineralogy. That's why I created this Forum.

FMF English Forum moderated by John S. White and Peter Megaw
John S. White
Peter Megaw

I have been serving as a moderator for the English version of FMF Forum now since 2007. This does not seem possible, but one cannot deny the facts. It has been a lot of fun for me and I hope that visitors to the Forum are enjoying it as well.

We are now (Dec. 2009) adding a new face as an additional moderator - Peter Megaw. Actually Peter is not new to regular visitors to the Forum as he has been one of the most prolific contributors to many of the threads. He brings awesome credentials to this role, all of which I do not have space to detail here. He is a Consulting Geologist and co-founder of IMDEX/Cascabel and MAG Silver. He got his B.A. and M.A. in geology at the University of Texas and a Ph.D. in economic geology from the University of Arizona. He has explored Mexico for 30 years and has made important ore discoveries at Juanicipio-Fresnillo, Zacatecas; Platosa, Durango; and Cinco de Mayo, Chihuahua.

Peter has been a dedicated mineral collector since 1977. Living in Tucson, Arizona, he has served as exhibits chairman for the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show™ every year since 1984. His minerals have won many trophies for him in various competitive displays. He was recently named a consulting editor for Rocks & Minerals Magazine. There is much more that can be written about Peter but space here is somewhat limited.
