GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:1943 Mazatlán hurricane/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.
GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    I did a bit of copyediting, but overall the prose looks good. One concern, though; what is a "fishing death"?
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    For such an historic storm, the article is a bit lacking on impact info. Here's a source with two paragraphs of good info for the Mazatlán area.
    I dont see the problem with the impact and thus im passing the article. Jason Rees (talk) 01:22, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    No images at all?
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:

On-hold for now. Good work so far—I look forward to being able to promote this. –Juliancolton | Talk 23:18, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

That website you mentioned is a near-copy of the Wikipedia article, so I don't exactly trust it. For such a historical storm, yes, it might be lacking in info, but I did a thorough Google search, and to my knowledge the article is very comprehensive. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 21:35, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Per your IRC comment, I would like a 2nd opinion, outside of yours. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 01:08, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Ref 1 should be split[edit]

Somehow this was missed in the GA review, but I believe that Hurricanehink, when he made this article, accidentally called two different references "mwr". They referred to different articles in the Monthly Weather Review. The Wiki software conflates them, even though they should be seperate. I'd fix this myself, but I don't know offhand what facts were gotten from each MWR article. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 01:58, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Good catch. I copied the ref when I was working on the Tico 83 article, which was also ref "mwr", but it was easy to catch since I only used that site once. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 02:03, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

During several automated bot runs the following external link was found to be unavailable. Please check if the link is in fact down and fix or remove it in that case!
