Super[edit]

Why is "Super" not allowed in the title? Mike H. That's hot 16:04, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Other articles of typhoons have no "Super" in their title. HERB 02:01, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
That didn't answer the why question at all. Mike H. That's hot 02:02, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
If the title is to include "Super" it should do so throughout all such articles. If you want to make that change you should take up the discussion on Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject Tropical cyclones. Jdorje 03:00, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
I am not looking for an argument, I just wanted to know why, which nobody has answered yet. Mike H. That's hot 04:09, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
I agree with you Mike the word super really should be part of the name because this really was a "super" typhoon. I was there. Jer V. 19:08, 11 August 2006(EST)
Simple answer its not officially an STY.Jason Rees (talk) 13:10, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Todo[edit]

More impact. Jdorje 03:00, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Shouldn't this be called Typhoon Paka (1997) since the name wasn't retired? Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 22:06, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

I think it's so rare to reuse names in the Central Pacific...I don't see it being a problem. It's not like the Atlantic where it's set to be reused every six years. Mike H. That's hot 05:32, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Assessment[edit]

Considering how little there is here, I have reclassified this as stub-class. It needs more anything. --Coredesat talk. o_O 03:36, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Todo[edit]

A lot. Try basing this off Hurricane Ioke. – Chacor 01:26, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Assessment[edit]

There's still little impact, and virtually no lede. Back to start-class. --Coredesat 22:45, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Good work on the article. No problems anywhere I can see. The only one there was, I fixed from a discussion on IRC. You may as well update the FTC.Mitch32contribs 18:43, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Winds speeds in [m/s]?[edit]

"Paka struck Guam and Rota with winds of 230 km/h (145 mph), [...]"

Shouldn't wind speeds be told in m/s aswell? I.e 63 m/s. m/s is a SI-unit and is the standard unit of wind speeds in Sweden at least. I appreciate input, because it's not just here one is told wind speeds in just km/hand mph. /Tense (talk) 06:29, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Australia and the Philippines use km/h, so using m/s is just superfluous. Potapych (talk) 14:00, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
but why should the Philippines and Austrailia dictate how the windspeed is listed? Guam, the CNMI and the Marshalls all use US standard measurements. Shouldn't the 145 mph be listed first?Rhodesisland (talk) 04:21, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
It's for consistency sake. All typhoon articles have km/h first. --Hurricanehink (talk) 18:28, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Reference 23[edit]

Looks like the IHC folks have been using the ref 23 link for the previous year's IHC action items. This means that ref 23 is no longer a valid reference for this article, since it now refers to the 2009 IHC. 140.90.194.102 (talk) 11:48, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Good catch. I replaced it with an earlier version on the wayback machine. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 13:12, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
