What about the unun* series?
Nov 13th, 2009 at 00:07 GMT
I agree with heresy
Nov 13th, 2009 at 00:45 GMT
screw the unun series... those are just latin or whatever names and until they are named, thats what they are called. No element is officially called unununium... thats just what it's refered to until they decide on a name.

Maybe add the unun series as bonuses or have a box "Ununbium etc." and accept all of them for that one box. Oh, and great quiz.

the "unun- elements" are just place holders until those elements are synthesized and named. They are not real names. I don't think they should be included.

Ytterbium and Yttrium should be correct, not just bonuses.
Mar 8th, 2010 at 13:03 GMT
For now the names are the unun... So they should be included or as a bonus as mentioned previously. Enjoyed the quiz

My strategy was to think through the abbreviations Aa-Az, Ea-Ez, etc. Naturally, I was screwed by Iron.

what about unobtanium?
Mar 9th, 2010 at 05:19 GMT
You left out elements 113-118, mind you they aren't officaily recognised yet, have as bonus answers, otherwise good quiz :D
Mar 11th, 2010 at 09:06 GMT
Osmium and Iridium are out of order.
Mar 12th, 2010 at 02:46 GMT
I think you can do whatever you want with the unun- series, but should at least reflect that choice in the directions.

The placeholder names can theoretically be extended indefinitely since they are in effect numbers rather than names. Should the quiz allow up to unnonnonium (199-ium) as well? I don't think so: it's a good quiz the way it is.
