Trackmap generator thing[edit]

Hi. I am planning to help in making storm tracks for the project. Ok, so far I have 1) Created a GitHub account, 2) went to [git clone git://github.com/titoxd/wptc-track.git this] and 3) Clicked 'Clone or Download'... Am I doing it right so far? If so, since I've already downloaded it, I have 3 files (data, png and tracks). Where do I go and what do I do now? Typhoon2013 (talk) 10:36, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

ERRORS[edit]

Hi, some people have some suggestions for us in the first section at WP:ERRORS. I'd appreciate it if you'd read over it and let us know there if you want to make any changes. - Dank (push to talk) 14:39, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Nevermind, that thread has been deleted. - Dank (push to talk) 17:08, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
@Dank: sorry for the delayed response, been busy most of the day and haven't had time to check wiki. Read through the thread and it seems like more of personal style than an actual issue so it didn't seem worth changing imo. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 19:37, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Season Timeline[edit]

Why add a break after Pali? You do have a point about "because of no systems within February-May, but I'm sure we did go over something like this with others a long time ago. There are many timelines similar to this now like the 2013 PTS, possibly the 2015 PHS and the current 2016 AHS. Typhoon2013 (talk) 21:40, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

@Typhoon2013: It's mainly for aesthetics and to avoid unnecessary space wasting. The rows are there mainly so that text doesn't overlap, and with such a huge gap between Pali and One-E there's no reason to have to start from row 3. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 21:42, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Either we break after Pali or not, there will still be 'space wasting'. And yes the rows are there for to avoid overlapping of text. I clearly remember someone doing the same for the 2013 PTS article, and someone said no need to break after the storm. I have made a lot of these timelines and everywhere else, the timelines are/should be the same by breaking in even columns. Typhoon2013 (talk) 22:00, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
They don't need to be, should just be a case-by-case basis. I've been here for nine years, remember Face-wink.svg Having things be overly rigid is off-putting and makes things a bit boring. Having some differences gives a subtle addition to any page. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 22:06, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Yeah. Let's try and see what happens with this timeline. Ok I agree with this now, but are you still fine with the timeline breaking in evenly amount of columns (about 6-8 storms per column)?? Like most seasons? Typhoon2013 (talk) 22:15, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Oh yeah, I have no issues at all with that. My only change was regarding periods of little activity when the storms are spaced out far enough that they can be brought to the first line. Having regular, even spacing during the active periods is definitely preferable. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 22:17, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
How about the 2016 AHS timeline? Alex was the only storm forming well outside the hurricane season, which Bonnie formed 5 months later. Do we still do the same? Typhoon2013 (talk) 22:22, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

HURDAT track errors[edit]

Over a year ago I got in contact with Dr. Landsea about position errors within some of the tracks published in the 1951-55 HURDAT update. He responded saying those tracks did contained topographic errors and it would be fixed in the next release of the dataset. Well those errors are still there with the 1956-1960 update. Maybe you could give him a reminder to fix the following tracks whenever you get the next chance.

  • Hurricane 13 1954
  • Hurricane Diane 1955
  • Tropical Storm Carla 1956

Thanks in advance Supportstorm (talk) 17:43, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

@Supportstorm: I'll write a note to remind him when I get into the office on Monday, but we likely won't add them until the next HURDAT update since we'll need to check over the data again and make sure the corrected positions align with the data. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 06:05, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi Cyclonebiskit, did you have any words from NHC about that discussion that we had some months ago? ABC paulista (talk) 15:37, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

@ABC paulista: ah yes, I forgot to message back. This is something we likely won't look at until we gear up until next year's HURDAT update. The primary focus at the moment is active storms and TCR writeups. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 17:00, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Hurricane Andrew damage[edit]

You called the $34 billion damage estimate questionable. Why is that? Angela Maureen (talk) 03:38, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

@September 1988: The $33 billion claim for Florida is not backed up by a linked report in the provided source and all major sources that I'm aware of indicate damage in the state to be $25 billion. It's basically an outlier total that needs additional support to be worth mentioning. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 12:15, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

1952 Groundhog storm re-classification[edit]

Abdullah Almarri - A.W.S.T. (talk) 15:04, 12 August 2016 (UTC)It seems that the Groundhog storm of 1952 is been re-classified to a Subtropical Storm, right? Abdullah Almarri - A.W.S.T. (talk) 15:07, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

@Abdullah Almarri - A.W.S.T.: It has not be reclassified. There was not enough evidence to support reclassification and it was left as tropical in HURDAT2 ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 15:08, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Abdullah Almarri - A.W.S.T. (talk) 15:14, 12 August 2016 (UTC)OK, I agree with you, but I can still say that it's subtropical. This isn't my first time editing, but I edited the 2008, 2009 and 2012 Pacific typhoon season articles to include replaced names. Abdullah Almarri - A.W.S.T. (talk) 15:14, 12 August 2016 (UTC)also, I edited the "List of Atlantic-Pacific crossovers" to include Earl and Javier, but Hank Dolce removed my edit, however, "CycloneYoris" restored my edit but in an other way.

@Abdullah Almarri - A.W.S.T.: Claiming it's subtropical would constitute Original Research. We can't make claims based on our own assessments, we have to follow official sources. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 15:18, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Ernesto 2012 Track Map Mistake[edit]

Hey, I saw that the track map for 2012's Hurricane Ernesto has a mistake, it says that it's a Category 2 hurricane, but in the Track map, I never saw the Yellow C2 Circles. Can you fix it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abdullah Almarri - A.W.S.T. (talkcontribs) 13:34, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

@Abdullah Almarri - A.W.S.T.: The track maps only use 6-hourly positions and Ernesto reached Category 2 between synoptic times. Because of this, the map won't show a Category 2 point. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 14:48, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

NOAA track data - source and headers?[edit]

Hello,

I am working in the field of hurricanes and more generally tropical cyclones, and for tracks of very recent cyclones, I am often relying on what is posted in Wikipedia. In the regard, I would be very interested to know more about the source of the tracking data, and to get full description of the headers. For example, for Hurricane Hermine (2016), this link shows the hurricane track. It mentions that the tracking data is derived from NOAA, but no description of the fields is provided. Would it be possible to have more information on the following: -link to NOAA tracking data page -description of the data fields (headers)

Thanks a lot for your help and your work! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:AA16:3301:2C00:DAA2:5EFF:FE8B:75C7 (talk) 18:08, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Cyclonebiskit. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

GA Cup Announcement[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2016-2017 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

Greetings, all!

We would like to announce the start of the 4th GA Cup, a competition that seeks to encourage the reviewing of Good article nominations! Thus far, there have been three GA Cups, which were successful in reaching our goals of significantly reducing the traditionally long queue at GAN, so we're doing it again. Currently, there are over 400 nominations listed. We hope that we can again make an impact this time.

The 4th GA Cup will begin on November 1, 2016. Four rounds are currently scheduled (which will bring the competition to a close on February 28, 2017), but this may change based on participant numbers. We may take a break in December for the holidays, depending on the results of a poll of our participants taken shortly after the competition begins. The sign-up and submissions process will remain the same, as will the scoring.

Sign-ups for the upcoming competition are currently open and will close on October 31, 2016. Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors, so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the judges.

Cheers from 3family6, Figureskatingfan, Jaguar, MrWooHoo, and Zwerg Nase.

To subscribe or unsubscribe to future GA Cup newsletters, please add or remove your name to our mailing list. If you are a participant, you will be on the mailing list no matter what as this is the easiest way to communicate between all participants.
