  • "Hurricane Alma had the latest development of the first storm since 1941." what kind of opener is this? Something does not seem grammatically correct here. I'd change "had" to "saw" here personally. YE Pacific Hurricane 06:17, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
  • ", one of which struck a house and a parked car." and " smashed many cabin cruisers and smaller vessels against the rocks" should be cut from the lead as IMO it goes too indepth. YE Pacific Hurricane
  • "and at 1200 UTC on August 26, a tropical depression developed offshore southeast Florida." "southeast Florida" to "southeastern Florida coast". YE Pacific Hurricane 06:17, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
  • "At 0600 UTC on August 29, Alma strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane; the storm also attained its maximum sustained wind speed of 100 mph (155 km/h) at this time." to "At 0600 UTC on August 29, Alma strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane. Meanwhile, the storm also attained its maximum sustained wind speed of 100 mph (155 km/h)." YE Pacific Hurricane 06:17, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
  • ""report.[2]" should be plural" YE Pacific Hurricane
  • At the end of the impact section: "in coastal sections of the state.[10]" "in" to "along" as you use "in" too much " YE Pacific Hurricane 06:17, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Ref 10 should be in cite report, not web. It's dumb, I know. YE Pacific Hurricane 06:17, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Alright, I addressed all of the above comments. Thanks for the review, YE.--12george1 (talk) 06:23, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Well written:

(a) the prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct; and
(b) it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation.[1]
(a) it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline;
(b) all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines;[2] and
(c) it contains no original research.
  • Broad in its coverage:
(a) it addresses the main aspects of the topic;[3] and
(b) it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style).
  • Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each.
  • Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute.
  • [4]
  • Illustrated, if possible, by images:
  • [5]

  1. ^ Compliance with other aspects of the Manual of Style, or the Manual of Style mainpage, is not required for good articles.
  2. ^ Either parenthetical references or footnotes can be used for in-line citations, but not both in the same article.
  3. ^ This requirement is significantly weaker than the "comprehensiveness" required of featured articles; it allows shorter articles, articles that do not cover every major fact or detail, and overviews of large topics.
  4. ^ Vandalism reversions, proposals to split or merge content, good faith improvements to the page (such as copy editing), and changes based on reviewers' suggestions do not apply. Nominations for articles that are unstable because of constructive editing should be placed on hold.
  5. ^ Other media, such as video and sound clips, are also covered by this criterion.
  6. ^ The presence of images is not, in itself, a requirement. However, if images (or other media) with acceptable copyright status are appropriate and readily available, then some such images should be provided.
