If you think the sequence will be a new one, once more terms have been
found, they submit, and say that

if you think it will coincide with an existing sequence, then add a comment
to the existing sequence saying what your new interpretation is, or seems
to be. If there are several candidates, pick the most likely one.

Best regards
