I stumbled upon the 1960 Atlantic hurricane season article by chances this morning. After reading through the topic and discovering all articles associated with it were at least of good article quality, I decided to put this up for a good topic assessment. I have checked this topic for the good topic criteria, and I feel it meets all of them. This is my first good topic candidate. Now, more about the topic itself. The 1960 Atlantic hurricane season was fairly inactive, but "inactive" doesn't mean "not destructive" when talking about hurricane seasons. Despite a grand total of just seven storms, two of them attained Category 5 intensity, one of which, Donna, will be long remembered for the citizens of the Caribbean and the U.S. East Coast.

If anyone has comments on this topic, please feel free to leave them below. I will do whatever it takes to promote this topic to GT status. I apologize if I have done something wrong, as again, this is my first good topic candidate.

Thank you,

Hello AndrewPeterT, I am another member of the WikiProject Tropical Cyclones. Back in June when I got the 1960 Atlantic hurricane season to GA, I too realized that this was now eligible to be a Good Topic. However, we were hesitant about it because of the condition of Hurricane Donna. Don't worry about Donna though, we will fix it. I added myself and three other users involved in this as contributors.

On second thought, I am gonna be unable to fix Donna and it will probably be safe to say that the other users won't either. Therefore, I am withdraw my position as co-nom and opposing the 1960 AHS for GT.--12george1 (talk) 03:39, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Due to the status of Donna, which I don't believe would pass GAN today, I have to oppose this candidacy at this time. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 21:38, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

So this nomination has been around for nearly two months and there has been one oppose due to ones articles current status. Not entirely sure if that's grounds to fail this. GamerPro64 21:48, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

  • With a second opinion by Juhachi, this nomination is Closed with no consensus to promote. - GamerPro64 21:38, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
