Talk:Cyclone Hollanda/News - here is the full version of the news articles used in the articles

Todo[edit]

Not too bad for an article in that basin, but some more work is needed. Inline sourcing would be good. The storm history should provide the entire meteorological history of the storm. Most of the data in the current storm history would probably be more appropriate for the impact section. Likewise, it'd be nice if the impact was expanded more, though I realize that might be difficult for the time period. Question - how come you included a link to Typhoon Tip and List of most intense tropical cyclones in the see also section? ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 21:27, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

The MH section look like the impact section. Hurricane Typhoon Cyclone 21:11, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Inconsistency[edit]

The highest wind information in the infobox and Met history section seem to be contradictory. Which one is the right one? --Izmir2 Sol de Mayo-Bandera de Uruguay.svg Let's talk 23:33, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Yea, I changed it to reflect what the Infobox said. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:30, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Please bear with me hink, I'm going to do my best to review this article. :) It might take a few days to finish, sorry. HurricaneFan25

I'll be doing a prose/writing around 14:00 UTC. Gotta bounce. HurricaneFan25 12:04, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
GA review (see here for what the criteria are, and here for what they are not)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
  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):
  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):
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
Comments:
  • "...in the middle of the Indian Ocean." (lede) "In the middle" sounds a bit awkward.
    • We regularly use that in the Atlantic (in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea). Would you recommend "central" instead? ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 13:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
  • "Hollanda destroyed or severely damaged 450 houses" (lede) Why not use "and"?
    • Oh, that wouldn't be true. It destroyed or heavily damaged the 450. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 13:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
  • Why not link to the Cyclone Ivy subsection in the 90/95 article? (lede)
  • "...organized convection, or thunderstorms." (MH) You've linked to convection, and it basically tells what convection is, so there's no need to write "or thunderstorms".
  • "...as it moved more poleward" (MH) what does "poleward" mean?
    • Toward the pole, either north or south pole depending on the hemisphere. I feel it's a pretty common word, but I can change it if you want. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 13:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
  • "...and about half without telephone." (impact) Sounds a bit weird, put "service" at the end of the sentence?
  • "...cyclone killed two people[4]" (impact) Add punctuation before the ref, a comma would suffice.
  • Ref #10 appears to be broken ("Colin Legum/2000")
  • Ref #15 is broken ("Economist Intelligence Unit/1995")
    • I fixed both. It was an issue of spacing in cite web. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 13:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the review! --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 13:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Happy to pass. :) HurricaneFan25 13:42, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
