Chronology of the Ancient Near East
There was some discussion that the Chronology of the ancient Near East needed to be returned to its planned purpose as dealing with the short vs long etc controversies of ANE chronology and splitting of the dynasty ruler stuff to some sort of timeline article. Can we come to some sort of resolution/decision on the future of the article so I can continue to work on it?
I'm fine with whatever but the uncertainty makes it difficult to know how to proceed. As I understand it the choices are
- Leave things the way they are
- Rename Chronology of the Ancient Near East to, say, Timeline of the
Ancient Near East and revert the CANE to what is was before I started working on it and start from there
- Split off part of CANE into a new article, say Timeline of the ANE
and leave part in the old article.
- Something Else

Change of Name
Near East seems to be a Eurocentric title. In keeping with Wikipedia's policy of neutral names, It would be better to use the term West Asia rather than terms like near-east, middle-east etc, since we use terms like South Asia, East Asia etc.
