A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 23:19, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Re: Pacific Tropical Cyclones[edit]

Would you mind providing me with the link to the website(s) in which you got your information? I just can't locate your source of information. If you do, that would be really helpful to me. Thank you!

They are all at the bottom of the article, and are also on my userpage. - The JMA is the main one.Jason Rees (talk) 17:32, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Re: Post-Tropical Cyclones[edit]

Well, if Post-Tropical Cyclones are actually extratropical, then why does the NHC state that they have a chance to redevelop? (For instance: Hurricane Eugene (2011), and Tropical Storm Emily (2011).)

To be honest I don't know the reasoning behind it, but I do know that Gert is still considered to be a Post-Tropical Cyclone by the OPC, and not extratropical.Jason Rees (talk) 01:40, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

User name[edit]

Hey there! I see you edit Wikipedia a lot. Have you thought about creating a user name? It helps people know who you are, instead of the random digits of numbers that you are currently seen as. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 20:16, 18 August 2011 (UTC)--♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 20:16, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Well, I certaintly have thought about that. It does sound really nice. You know, I might create a user name sometime, once I get the time to. Well, I will definitely look forward to that.

Removal of talk page warnings[edit]

Just as a fyi for this edit - users are allowed to remove warnings from their talk page par WP:R Van, section 5. Any editor may remove warnings from their talk page (This does not go for block templates), though clearing the warnings is just taken as an indication that the user read and accepted them. Excirial (Contact me,Contribs) 22:14, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Oh. I guess I didn't know that. Well, another user kept attacking me (about 5 months ago; he kept reverting my good faith edits, and made excuses by calling me a vandalist), and naturally I assumed that you couldn't remove warnings (since he always readded the warnings, and told me that I could not remove them). Well, thanks for the heads-up, I certainly appreciate it. Thanks!!! (talk) 22:19, 22 November 2011 (UTC)


Hi, have you ever considered registering a username for yourself? Might be something you want to think about, it does have its perks. TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 23:35, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Well, I have, and it does sound really nice. Who knows, maybe I might create a username for myself, someday soon. (talk) 23:37, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
Aww, come on...You can do it in a minute or less by going here :-) TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 23:59, 22 November 2011 (UTC)


Yeah we use UTC but the systems advisories were initiated @ Dec 5 00UTC hence its the 5.Jason Rees (talk) 03:11, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry. I didn't know that. (talk) 03:18, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
My information comes directly from the RSMCs - the instance that the final advisory on a storm does not automatically mean that it has dissipated.Jason Rees (talk) 01:33, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
The last TWO said that it was dissipating as we speak but that was 12 hrs ago.Jason Rees (talk) 01:35, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
Storm has dissipated on December 16. Thanks for the update! (talk) 19:49, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

Hi, if you did not know, the National Hurricane Center releases Tropical Cyclone Reports on each individual storm that formed at the end of each hurricane season. In this case, they upped Bret's maximum sustained winds from 55 knots (65 mph) to 60 knots (70 mph). You can find all of the Tropical Cyclone Reports they have releases here. – TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 01:41, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I think I got that. But just where do they release the TCRs? (talk) 01:42, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Do not shout at other people in edit summaries. Just stay calm. ––Bruvtakesover (talk!) 21:45, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I guess I kind of lost it there, for that second. (talk) 22:07, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
Stop using disruptive edit summaries. ––Bruvtakesover (talk!) 17:01, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Stop it, or you will be reported. —Bruvtakesover (talk!) 00:15, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Stop what??? (Seriously, I don't know what did wrong this time, so could you please show me?) (talk) 00:16, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Don't use capitals in edit summaries. 1, 2, 3... and more —Bruvtakesover (talk!) 00:20, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9Bruvtakesover (talk!) 00:25, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Can you please tell me why doing that is wrong? Besides, the Cap letters weren't for yelling this time, it was to mark certain words that I wanted the reader to emphasize on. (Oh, and I have seen more than a few users use cap letters, repeatedly.) (talk) 00:27, 24 December 2011 (UTC)


Please stop plonking in crap about when a storm has dissipated, when it is clear it hasn't dissipated. The dates in the season info-boxes generally only include dates when RSMCs are actually warning on systems and they are either tropical or subtropical. For the record Fina hasnt dissipated yet and will not dissipate for at least another week - it has only weakened into a tropical low (depression) and will probably become extratropical soon which is when we would normally shut the infobox off. However the infobox has been shut off early and will be updated till one of Brisbane Nadi or Wellingotn say its become extratropical. In summuary do not add in when a storm dissipates by the JTWC, since they are usually wrong or when we shut of the infobox.Jason Rees (talk) 03:45, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

And btw, Fina is unofficially subtropical. —Bruvtakesover (talk!) 12:49, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Can you please give me a link to your source? I would very much appreciate a new source of tracking data (which I may be able to use as well). (talk) 19:03, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Check the New Caledonia marine bulletins. —Bruvtakesover (talk!) 19:08, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
What is the website? (talk) 19:09, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
This is what it states:
Subtropical depression was centered at 12 UTC on 23/12 BY 22.6OS

Bruvtakesover (talk!) 19:14, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! (Please update me, upon Fina's dissipation.) (talk) 19:15, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
And the bulletin is located here. —Bruvtakesover (talk!) 19:17, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
However, it is likely that Fina will enter the SPAC basin. —Bruvtakesover (talk!) 19:18, 24 December 2011 (UTC)


The New Zealand bulletin mentioned that the system was frontal. 1Bruvtakesover (talk!) 20:30, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Pacific tracks[edit]

I have created File:JMA TD39 2011 track.png but you will have to sort out with Jason Rees whether this short lived system gets to be mentioned in the article. Regards--Keith Edkins ( Talk ) 22:04, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Have created File:JMA TD40 2011 track.png. As regards Grant I thought I was up-to-date, as regards the NRL trackfile which we use for storms where one is available. What data are you comparing?--Keith Edkins ( Talk ) 17:49, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Well, seeing as you have updated the summary track (the edit with the statement about Grant's final update) later than Grant's own track, I assumed (I may be wrong) that you may not have given Grant's track "the final update." If I am wrong, please tell me. Thanks! (talk) 05:44, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Oops! Sorry, never mind! I overlooked something. You did give Grant the final update. Sorry about that. (talk) 06:00, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Re: Storm "Deaths"[edit]

No, Grant is not gone. No, 02F is not gone. What is your source? None of the bulletins state those systems are gone. —Bruvtakesover (talk!) 20:38, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Guess I misread something. (talk) 20:39, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
RSMC Nadi - "TROPICAL DISTURBANCE TD02F [1002HPA] ANALYSED NEAR 20.0S 163.5W AT 291800UTC AND SLOW MOVING. POSITION POOR." - and BoM only state that it is a tropical low. —Bruvtakesover (talk!) 20:43, 29 December 2011 (UTC)


The New Zealand bulletins are not in French... so instead of asking both of us, be bold. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 02:34, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Okay. (P.S, why does the Google Toolbar state that the page is in French?) (talk) 05:42, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Report it to Google. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 06:15, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
I can't believe that they would make such a big mistake. (talk) 06:24, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
It is just their stupid servers. Computers are not always correct. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 06:25, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
What google toolbar?.Jason Rees (talk) 18:52, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
I mean the Google Translation Toolbar. (talk) 23:46, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Useless edits[edit]

Please stop making useless edits such as removing lines between clears and a block writing or adding in useless tags. Thanks.Jason Rees (talk) 00:41, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

I was just trying to make everything "neat and organized." (P.S, why do most other pages have the same format, as the one that I have tried to change 03F's to?) (talk) 00:43, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
You're just cluttering the article up by adding those useless tags. And most other pages do not have the same format as the one that you tried to change 03Fs to, most have a space in between the clear and last paragraph, to keep it looking neat in the edit window. Jason Rees (talk) 00:45, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
I guess I didn't know. (Cause no one actually cared enough to explain that to me.) (talk) 00:48, 9 January 2012 (UTC)


The track for Heidi cannot be updated since the final warning for Heidi was just off the coast of WA. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 00:17, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Are you sure there are no more track info? (Because Google Earth has data that Heidi made it deep inland, before dissipating.) (talk) 00:24, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Actually it did make it inland to Mucalana Creek. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 00:27, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
But isn't there any more track data to provide the additional update? (talk) 00:29, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
No. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 00:31, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Wait there is additonal track data. Keith Edkins managed to locate additional advisories on Heidi. (talk) 01:35, 25 January 2012 (UTC)


Look. I do not care about if a new cyclone will be popping up in the SPAC. I do not need to know from you, and I've got eyes myself. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 08:12, 20 January 2012 (UTC)


So Keith can get some piece and quiet from you, I have installed the track software... so why don't you come and bother me now. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 02:10, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

The track in the Coral Sea was included in error. It related to a disturbance known to NRL as 97P.INVEST (see comments at Talk:2011–12 Australian region cyclone season#Remnants). I copied it into my datafile thinking it might be the remnants of Grant, but on reflection it seems it wasn't - it existed at the same time as Grant but 400 miles further east. It doesn't seem to have been noticed by the BoM so I removed it. I don't have any plottable data on the remnants of Grant beyond the Cape York peninsula at 29 Dec 0000z.--Keith Edkins ( Talk ) 14:40, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks for your works! (talk) 00:28, 25 January 2012 (UTC)


Stop reverting other peoples edits for pointless reasons. Yes, it might be original research, but tbh, most stuff on Wikipedia is OR. Everything on 2011-12 South Pacific cyclone season is OR. Why don't you go and revert everything on there? Bruvtakesover (T|C) 01:54, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Because I have seen the sources, even if they aren't there anymore. (Plus I own the book, from which I just made a ref to the online version.) (talk) 01:55, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
However, many other people probably haven't seen it. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 01:58, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
That is why we have other users, to double check and cite webpages. (talk) 02:00, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
Not really. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 02:03, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

February 2012[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Please make sure to include an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! Jim1138 (talk) 01:22, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

I usually don't leave a summary on Talk Pages, unless I am adding something important. Otherwise, I tend to use edit summaries. (talk) 01:24, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Seasonal effects[edit]

Please leave the damage and deaths columns blank if the TC affected an area rather than putting unknown or None since otherwise its OR.Jason Rees (talk) 01:52, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
Okay. But why blank them? (talk) 01:53, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
Because we need to back ourselves up with sources about deaths and damages and if a TC affected an area id rather leave it blank than commit ORn and say that there was an unknown or no damages or deaths. This applies to all basins. Jason Rees (talk) 02:03, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I think I get it now. (talk) 04:19, 7 February 2012 (UTC)


The RSMC Nadi has issued their final advisory on this system because it has moved south of 25S. Check here for the latest advisory from RSMC Wellington. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 23:35, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Can you please provide me a link to Wellington's bulletins, because I can't seem to find them. Thanks! (talk) 23:58, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
Now next time, look harder. . Bruvtakesover (T|C) 00:00, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
