Tellurium?[edit]

Add tellurium, named for Earth? --Roentgenium111 (talk) 17:52, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Not yet approved names[edit]

Two elements are now in their 5-month period of public commentary before the being formally approved. On or after November, they may or may not be approved. It seems we have two choices:

  • 1 Keep them out of the list
  • 1a Keep them out of the list but add something to the lede emphasizing the scope of the list and possibly mentioning the Moscow, Japan and Tennesee.
  • 2 Add them to the list
  • 2a Add them to the list with a footnote indicating their status and possibly a not in the lede

Two editors () have opted for #2, which I reverted per WP:BRD, reverting to the status quo ante, #1. I think that until the names have been formally approved, the article should be either in 1a or 2a. I am open to suggestions for other possibilities, but I don't think any changes should be made until this discussion has been completed. Please voice your opinion below.
