i've semi-protected the article due to what amounts to a content dispute. We are now at the D part of WP:BRD. Semi-protection will force that. This id a Good Article, let's keep it that way. Mjroots (talk) 06:15, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure if the WeatherEditor socks' edits are correct, perhaps they are, perhaps they're not. I'll have to pick through the Met Office sources and find out. The principal problem I have is, as you've just hinted, they're not discussing changes particularly well, making it difficult to know their intent. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 09:38, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
@Ritchie333: I don't know either, but the burden is that proof must be provided if challenged, which it has been. Let's see whether or not the IP will talk. Mjroots (talk) 10:47, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Right, I've had a look, and I see two problems. Firstly, the Met Office source is for Faversham, not Ashford, which makes perfect sense as that's where the nearest station is held, though I know from first hand experience with the North Downs that it's not at all unusual to have a thunderstorm in one and clear skies in the other. The bigger problem is that the source does not support the figures in the table. For example, for January, the average rainfall is given as 62.2mm, whereas the table states it as 71.4mm. The maximum average temperature for July is given as 22.8 degrees Celsius, but 21.8 degrees in the table. So in summary, the information that Weathereditor / Telegraph13 or whatever sockpuppet he's using today is factually incorrect and should not be used. Furthermore, the only reason we've having all these sockpuppet investigations is that, as Mjroots suggested, he's not discussing anything! Talk is cheap - and avoids upsets.

I do not think that a settlement should have a weather box referenced to a weather station outside the area concerned, rather weather boxes should only be used if the weather station is inside the area covered by the article. Hence countries and regions could justifiably have one, but not villages nor many towns. The one in the article should be removed, perhaps leaving a link to a page which justifiably includes one. Faversham, Kent or even southeast England might do better as an area to have a weather box for climate. SovalValtos (talk) 15:58, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
I've gone through all the climate stuff and taken out everything that does not directly cite a weather event that is specifically for Ashford. I don't think the article loses any of the "broad in coverage" part of the GA criteria for it either. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:25, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
I agree. Consensus is that the weather station at Faversham is not to be used to provide weather data for Ashford. I've got the article (but not this talk page) on my patent watchlist system. I'm prepared to semi-protect it permantly, and have inserted the key to my banhammer into the lock. It'll just take a quarter turn to the right and the banhammer will be out.

Clearly it's Mad March so the council have shoved some cash to make the County Square website to be updated. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 14:09, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
