My user name, written in minerals


I'm mostly working on the german Wikipedia (registered since June 2005) in the field of minerals and sysop there since December 2006.

My first Commons-Edit was in March 2006 (look at my commons-contributions and Editcount) and since February 2008, I'm sysop on Commons, too. At this point, thanks at all, who votes for me :-).

For my contributions in the other projects look at Global user contributions

If you like to contact me you may more likely see me on my german discussion page.

For my pictures in commons look at Category:Files by User:Ra'ike from de.wikipedia, but my favorite gallery is Natural art by minerals ;-)

Other minerals from me: Category:Fotosession im Lokal K (Geologie)

I'm almost regular in the Wikipedia-Chat

Look at #wikipedia-de and #wikipedia-de-rc. My chat-nick is Ra_ike. I'm also in #wikimedia-commons.
