The previous page has been moved to List of storms in the 2006 Pacific hurricane season, partially to preserve edit history for that page. All of the archived have been moved, as well. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 20:27, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

FAC[edit]

Have to say it: GO HINK!!!! --Dylan620 (Homeyadda yadda yaddaOoooohh!) 13:13, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Congrats! (+ one minor observation)[edit]

Congrats, and well done to all contributors involved with getting this article on the Main Page! I did notice some extra space at the very top of the article. Is this due to the "NOTOC" command? Perhaps there is a fix I am not familiar with. --Another Believer (Talk) 00:19, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

No its not. i removed the TOC command but their still seemed to be quite a bit of white space up the top.Jason Rees (talk) 03:02, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
I think it may have something to do with Template:Infobox hurricane season, but I'm not sure exactly what. --Bongwarrior (talk) 03:47, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
After toying around in the sandbox for some time, I finally discovered that if you don't have a "total depressions" field in the infobox, you get a ton of white space at the top. I'll add that field to see if it does anything. Looking at similar articles, it looks like "total depressions" include everything: depressions, storms, and hurricanes, so here it would be 25. Correct the article if I'm wrong. 71.113.41.108 (talk) 06:57, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that helped a little but it's still not perfect. If we remove the "season list" and "season timeline" fields, all the whitespace disappears, but I don't know if we want to remove content just for the sake of appearance. 71.113.41.108 (talk) 07:07, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Politcal Neutral[edit]

This article is B/S. It is not in the slightest politically neutral. It only includes tropical cyclones that have someway affected the USA. You know, hurricanes can exist in other parts of the world. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gavwah27 (talkcontribs) 14:18, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

We are fully aware that Hurricanes happen in other parts of the world, but this article is specifically defined as being for the Northern Eastern Pacific Basin which is between the International dateline and the Americas. If you have a look at the see also section of this article you will find links to the 9 other tropical cyclone seasons that took place during 2006.Jason Rees (talk) 16:04, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Many of them affected Mexico.. Brutannica (talk) 22:23, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
"the National Hurricane Center (NHC) area of warning responsibility,": National should perhaps be prefaced by which nation it is, since there are several. I'd also say that the title gives the appearance that this is an article about the Pacific ocean, and while there may be many reasons which I've not considered or investigated for choosing to have one article about one side of the Pacific and its weather, and another about the other side of it, the title(s) should reflect that. I don't see it is a quetion of politics or neutrality, but of whether this is the Wikipedia, or the Wikipedia of (one of the polities of) the Americas. One of those is better than the other.

The list of tropical cyclones in the western Pacific can be found at 2006 Pacific typhoon season. Over there they're called typhoons, here they're called hurricanes. Juliancolton (talk) 11:38, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Pacific tropical cyclones looks like a good title then. Midgley (talk) 00:07, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Again, there are tropical cyclones in the western Pacific. They're hurricanes east of the dateline, so that's why it's the hurricane season. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:21, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
