|Periodic Table by Quality
|Pictures||Isotopes task force||Participants
This WikiProject has managed to standardize the articles on the known chemical elements (see Guidelines page). Now it is aimed at the maintenance of these at an agreed upon format discussed in Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Elements and at the expansion and improvement of each article to featured article quality (check out our Goals below). See also WikiProject Isotopes. For a complete list of articles covered, including talk pages and templates, click here. To see all articles covered, but not talk pages and templates, see the periodic table by quality.
- Nihonium, moscovium, tennessine, and oganesson became the official names of elements 113, 115, 117, and 118 on November 30, 2016.
For the first time in history the periodic table is complete: all seven rows have no gaps and there are no unconfirmed elements awaiting official recognition!
- The alkali metals are a good topic candidate.
- Seaborgium is a good article nominee.
- Thorium is at peer review.
- Nitrogen became a good article on January 5, 2017.
- Bohrium became a good article on December 24, 2016.
- Chlorine became a good article on December 15, 2016.
- Bromine became a good article on November 20, 2016.
- Strontium became a good article on November 18, 2016.
- Cerium became a good article on October 25, 2016.
- Iodine became a good article on October 24, 2016.
- Heavy metals became a featured article on October 23, 2016.
- Sodium became a good article on October 21, 2016.
- Indium became a good article on October 3, 2016.
- Gallium became a good article on September 28, 2016.
- Unbinilium became a good article on September 23, 2016.
- Iron became a good article on September 18, 2016.
- Lanthanum became a good article on July 11, 2016.
Periodic table by article quality
|Periodic table by Article Quality|
- Short term
- Continue current projects or collaborations between our members (i.e. lead, thorium), bringing them to FA-class.
- Make every radioactive element at least a GA (left: radium, dubnium).
- Bring all of the seven ancient metals (iron, copper, silver, tin, gold, mercury, lead), along with aluminium and silicon, to GA-class.
- Other side projects of articles that project members see fit to pursue.
- Mid term
- Bring all the element articles to GA-class or above (turn the "Periodic Table by Quality" completely dark green and blue.) (104/120 = 87% as of November 2016, counting the current GANs as succesful in advance)
- Bring all six of the CHNOPS elements (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, sulfur), to FA-class.
- Longer term
- Bring all of the seven ancient metals (iron, copper, silver, tin, gold, mercury, lead), along with aluminium and silicon, to FA-class.
- Bring the four most homogeneous groups (alkali metal, alkaline earth metal, halogen, noble gas) to FA, along with transition metal. All other groups (including lanthanides, actinides, and transactinides) need only be GAs at this point.
- Ultimate goals
- Bring all element articles to FA standard (turn the "Periodic Table by Quality" completely dark blue.) (20/120 = 17% as of July 2016)
- Also bring all supporting articles to FA standard.
