General problem: All "Image:x-TableImage.png" have incorrect colors for Lutetium and Lawrencium. The .svg file has incorrect metalloids

  1. Image:x-TableImage.png - too small or is not made equal to others (looks awful etc.)
  2. done
  3. Image:x,y.jpg - does not exist
  4. Image:Electron shell xxx yyyyyyy.png - does not exist

sorted by atomic number

Colors in periodic table templatesEdit

The color for transitional metals in the legend does not match the color in the periodic table itself, it is the same color as the one for alkali metals. I don't want to try and fix this, because these colors seem to use templates that are used in many other places, and I don't want to screw things up. Nandhp 00:21, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

not completeEdit

Not complete. where is the Copernicium?! --Baruchbay (talk) 17:25, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

now done. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 18:46, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Compact image representationEdit

I am very happy that this wikitable form exists. I am distressed that no other form exists or that the way this is presented prevents other representations from being visible. A good image that could be used as a thumb, expandable on demand would be nice. Alternatively, when a user clicked on the image, the user might be taken to a page at the project that had a wikitable like this one. DCDuring (talk) 19:05, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Flerovium: Fl or Fv?Edit

What is the chemical symbol for flerovium: Fl or Fv? -- 12:16, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

It is Fl. -- 19:01, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

enwiki categorizing differsEdit

Since August 2013, English wiki uses a different categorisation for metallish-ness in most of its periodic tables. The non-metalloids are categorised as diatomic nonmetal and polyatomic nonmetal. Categories "other nonmetals" and "halogens" are not used any more. (Note: the group name halogens is still in use). Easy check: if the yellow is a full column (group 17), then it's old setup.

Diatomic nonmetal and polyatomic nonmetal still use a yellow and green legend color, but slightly different from the earlier ones. -DePiep (talk) 14:14, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
