Former good article Hurricane Patsy (1959) was one of the Natural sciences good articles, but it has been removed from the list. There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Comments[edit]

Just a note, I have a gut feeling that the NHC track is NOT valid. The track map shows clearly why - it appears to reflect off the dateline, going through an unnatural >90 degree turn to do so. The explanation is simple. One data point in HURDAT is "*2731787 100 0". However, that is probably 1787E not 1787W. It the true data point should be "*2731813 100 0". That would be an easy error to make and similarly easy to verify (email). On confirmation of HURDAT being incorrect I can fix the track, but obviously not beforehand.--Nilfanion (talk) 19:04, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

I have delinked the dates and completed the offending sentence. Unless you mistakenly added the sentence "If the following statements can be answered" to the review, in which case I have completed resolving your concerns, you need to tell me what the following statements are so I can finish resolving your concerns. Thank you. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 23:50, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, I'm talking about the above stuff I left, I guess I should change "following statements" to "above stuff". Anyways, thank you to Miss Madeline for getting the "stuff" I left at the talk page, because I have gone off and placed the article as GA. Congrats. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 16:22, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Merge?[edit]

It's really, really short.... --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 01:51, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

It's part of a good topic series, which needs it to be complete. Potapych (talk) 04:57, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

If it's merged due to lack of notability and whatnot, then it wouldn't be a notable gap. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 05:05, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
The quality of the MH is extremely bad - it doesn't deserve GA status at all. I'm copyediting it at the moment. HurricaneFan25 18:41, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
AFD closed as keep. YE Pacific Hurricane 15:30, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

≤== Redirect (Revisited)? ==

Why not? I've gotten less splitist over the years. YE Pacific Hurricane 02:39, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Agreed. And there was marginal support above. Yours was the main opposition. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 02:40, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
I'm fine with merging this as well. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 05:46, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
