On the infoboxes, when I put in 136 mph (155 mph), it comes up as Category 5.

I thought 156+ was a Category 5, not 155 mph?

Can u come on IRC tonight at some point during Saturday afternoon or evening (UTC+1) please. I need some guidence with that newsletter that you and Mitch wanted me to develop and Mitchazenia's has not really been around.Jason Rees (talk) 00:57, 2 October 2010 (UTC)



I've noticed, when using a storms picture, you guys use certain types. Do they have to be like that? Because, I have some really cool images that I can upload for Earl, Igor, Alex, and a lot, lot, more.

Cyclone yemyin[edit]

Since u made this article in 2007 i just want to say that it was a "severe cyclonic storm" or a weak category 1 hurricane...The IMD didnt payed attention to it due to the conflict between PAK-INDO.. I have some ref that prove that it was a weak hurricane as it had a eye like structure and its winds touched 69mph in Karachi, the JTWC also said that its a sevre cyclonic storm and its wind speed is 60mph NOT 40mph as said by IMD...So should i change it???15jan19932010 (talk) 05:03, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Actually the IMD did pay attention to the system and thus you shouldn't change the windspeeds as the IMD are the official warning center for the region and they who we go with regardless of what other warning centers say. Also i severely doubt that the IMD didn't pay attention to it due to the conflict between Pakistan-India. Though we can mention the windspeeds from PMD in the MH.Jason Rees (talk) 15:22, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Category 5[edit]

Hi Is not true. I readed a page and says that hurricane category 4 is winds speed from 131-154 and i downloaded the hurricane igor kmz track for google earth from national hurricane center and says that 155 is category 5.

Illinois (album)[edit]

As the most recent reviewer of the article, I wanted to get your opinion of its current state. Diff comparing article from close of last FAC to now: [1]. I have thus far been unable to find information about Stevens' motivation for the long song titles, but I feel otherwise it is substantially more comprehensive than when you reviewed it. I'm considering re-nominating the article at FAC, but I thought I should get your opinion first. Thanks! Jujutacular talk 02:58, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

If you have any further concerns, feel free to comment at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Illinois (album)/archive3. Thanks! Jujutacular talk 14:59, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Hurricane Otto[edit]

Would you mind doing a reassessment for Hurricane Otto? I feel it could be more than C-class now, but I want to see other opinions on it first. Thanks in advance. (talk) 17:59, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Somehow, I forgot to thank you for your help with the peer review of Bartow, Florida. I really appreciate the time you spent helping my improve the article. After correcting the errors made (I was fortunate enough to have four people who have FA experience), I have submitted it as a GA nominee. Thanks once again and sorry for the delayed thanks.

Cyclone Giri[edit]

I used to do that, but when i realized people are changing everything i put in, i was dissapointed and discouraged, so i tought it was best for me to wait for other to finish those things. --Anirudh EmaniSay something 16:12, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Re: Hurricane Richard (2010)[edit]

Sorry about that, I was in a rush at the time. I probably shouldn't have made the edit rather than make it as quickly as possible so I could get to my next class. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 16:25, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

I didn't forget to convert it that time! The first source for $18 million is for infrastructure, the second was for Agriculture in Belize dollars so I converted it to USD (which came to be $16.7 million) and added the two together. It was just a coincidence that the combination of the two happened to be very similar to the Belize dollar total for agriculture. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 16:27, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
Doesn't matter now, different (and more recent source) contradicts what I found.... Cyclonebiskit (talk) 16:28, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! That all makes sense, yeah. I really admire your articles, so to learn from you would be a great honor, ha. I'll try to frequent the chat; it seems pretty interesting. Hylian Auree (talk) 04:12, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Interesting thing to note[edit]

Just looking at the latest visible loops of Tomas, it appears that the upper-level circulation has turned into its own system. Is it possible that we could see further development of this split off system? Cyclonebiskit (talk) 18:12, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Not a chance ;) The convection is dying as we speak (type). Hurricanehink (talk) 19:20, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

GAN for Tropical Storm Laura[edit]

Hello Hurricanehink, I forgot to tell you that I reviewed Tropical Storm Laura (1971) for GA. Overall all you did a good job, but I have a few minor issues before I can pass, see here.

I just wanted to leave you a note, I left a comment at the FLC regarding sourcing and not sure how clear I came across, if I'm unclear I'd be more than happy to try to clarify my point if need be. Afro (Talk) 10:10, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Moving the conversation about 11e/Hermine onto the main project talk page[edit]

I have no problem with splitting articles into two for systems which lose TC status, according to the RSMC, during the trip. Realize that Bret/Greg would have to be two articles due to this in addition to Alma/Arthur. In the 1949-1987 period, there are going to be systems where the hurricane centers for the Atlantic and eastern Pacific were not in agreement, such as Fifi/Orlene, or even worse, where there is a TC listed which is not in the other's database, such as the October 1949 crossing.

Re: 11E[edit]

The Tropical Cyclone Report for Eleven-E was released.

"In an uncommon occurrence, the low continued northward into the Bay of Campeche on 5 September, where it re-developed and became Atlantic Tropical Storm Hermine."

Reference formatting[edit]

Just a friendly note, the accessdate and date portions of the {{cite web}} template that you fill out don't comply with WP:MOS. The dates should be written out rather than be in numeric form. ;) Cyclonebiskit (talk) 23:47, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Thats news to me - ive always known it that you can use a separate date format in the references. In fact digging into the MOS it says Dates in the format YYYY-MM-DD (like 1976-05-13) are uncommon in English prose and are generally not used in article prose. However, they may be useful in long lists, references, and tables for conciseness and ease of comparison. Jason Rees (talk) 00:06, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

2010 global storm activity articles[edit]

Hi. Just an example of potential cleanup work, I made some recent edits to the "late 2010" non-tropical storms article just to make some minor improvements to the phrasing and consistency. I realize that the most recent articles have degraded to the point that most experienced users will not even touch that shi(f)t, but it can still be changed. The AfD currently has 4 deletes, 1 keep/rehaul, and 2 "break down" !votes, and would qualify as a no consensus debate ATM but the articles can still be improved futher. Thanks. ~AH1(TCU) 20:42, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Also, about your question concerning the hemispheres, a "winter storm" article can include year-round winter storms for both the northern hemisphere's winter months and the southern hemisphere's winter months and likewise for the summer storms. ~AH1(TCU) 19:47, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry about changing it back, but the picture I put there is better. It shows Emily at her peak, and it has a better view of her eye. Why are you changing it back?--Ryder Busby (talk) 20:59, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Sure, I will work on "real" articles, but I still need time to practice writing them. I already changed my sandboxes back so they don't read "such destructive storms", but I thought sandboxes were for my practice articles. And I have posted a comment on the Hurricane Emily (2005) talk page. Please reply. Thank you--Ryder Busby (talk) 21:36, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, but I only changed it because the Hurricane Rita (2005) article says the storm formed September 17, and dissipated September 24. I was only referring to the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ryder Busby (talkcontribs) 23:24, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
