Welcome to the 2014 WikiCup![edit]

Hello TropicalAnalystwx13, and welcome to the 2014 WikiCup! Your submission page can be found here. The competition will begin at midnight tonight (UTC). There have been a few small changes from last year; the rules can be read in full at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring, and the page also includes a summary of changes. One important rule to remember is that only content on which you have completed significant work, and nominated, in 2014 is eligible for points in the competition- the judges will be checking! As ever, this year's competition includes some younger editors. If you are a younger editor, you are certainly welcome, but we have written an advice page at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Advice for younger editors for you. Please do take a look. Any questions should be directed to one of the judges, or left on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup. Signups will close at the end of January, and the first round will end on 26 February; the 64 highest scorers at that time will make it to round 2. Good luck!

Refs[edit]

What evidence do you have that the author of those entries are the NWS offices. The WFO section is just informational; it does not credit the NWS. As I said on my talk page (to which you failed to reply), even if I gave you information to write a book, you still wrote the book and would be credited as the author. In this case, NCDC lists no author, so you fail to be in compliance with WP:OR. Now, regarding IEM, they do nothing except relay information that is published by NOAA's NWS offices. Unlike the NCDC, they do not put out anything of their own. United States Man (talk) 03:53, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

But you still don't give any evidence of an author. There is no author listed on the entry pages, so how can we list one on Wikipedia without anything to back it up? United States Man (talk) 04:29, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Since you haven't answered my question, I feel inclined to remove it again. Do you have any evidence? If so, where? United States Man (talk) 22:24, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
Jason Rees gave me this, which solves half of the problem. I don't care either way; I just wanted the evidence. United States Man (talk) 23:48, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

May 26–31, 2013 tornado outbreak graphic[edit]

What about the graphic was misleading? (On a side note, I also don't see any record of it being removed in the past.) Inks.LWC (talk) 23:48, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

So, about the article deals.[edit]

  • You'll be writing a three-paragraph lede and a short paragraph impact header for 1846 Havana hurricane by the 14th of January
  • I'll copyedit the entire article and send it to GAN.
  • After that, feel free to claim GA credit for it in the WikiCup. (Yeah, I know you declined, but I'd appreciate it if you did it.)
  • In exchange, I'll collaborate with you, as we discussed, on Hurricane Frances. We'll plan this out sometime later, probably over IRC – we'll wait and see, I suppose.

I'm posting this on WP 'cause I'm holding this to you. You better do it with me or I'mma hunt you down, TA.

See ya. Cloudchased (talk) 03:06, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Oi; any update on this? What should we be doing for Frances? Cloudchased (talk) 23:53, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Winter Storm Hercules[edit]

This is surely worthy of an article but I don't feel confident enough to write it.

I heard someone describe the "polar vortex" as "Ion", but unfortunately The Weather Channel's one article proving there was such a storm only exists as a link which doesn't go anywhere on their web site. So I'm not sure if the cold air, which is worthy of its own article, counts as part of Hercules.— Vchimpanzee · talk · contributions · 16:45, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Tables[edit]

Most the tables that I deleted were not properly done. they need to have areas effected, instead of landfalls and direct hits.

Hurricane Erick's GA review.[edit]

Greetings! I apologize for the late getting-around, but this had slipped my mind till you reminded me. Well, I've almost completed this review, but there are a couple of little details I would appreciate clarity on before I go any further. I have them noted in a comments section in the review page; when you have a moment to do so, it'd be great if you could look into them. Thanks! :) Is it the end already? It felt like we were just getting started! (talk) 06:22, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 January newsletter[edit]

The 2014 WikiCup is off to a flying start, with, at time of writing, 138 participants. The is the largest number of participants we have seen since 2010. If you are yet to join the competition, don't worry- the judges have agreed to keep the signups open for a few more days. By a wide margin, our current leader is newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose set of 14 featured pictures, the first FPs of the competition, was worth 490 points. Here are some more noteworthy scorers:

Featured articles, featured lists, featured topics and featured portals are yet to play a part in the competition. The judges have removed a number of submissions which were deemed ineligible. Typically, we aim to see work on a project, followed by a nomination, followed by promotion, this year. We apologise for any disappointment caused by our strict enforcement this year; we're aiming to keep the competition as fair as possible.

Wikipedians interested in friendly competition may be interested to take part in The Core Contest; unlike the WikiCup, The Core Contest is not about audited content, but, like the WikiCup, it is about article improvement; specifically, The Core Contest is about contribution to some of Wikipedia's most important article. Of course, any work done for The Core Contest, if it leads to a DYK, GA or FA, can earn WikiCup points.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Disambiguation link notification for February 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of United States tornadoes from January to February 2014, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Georgia (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hi, congratulations on the GA for Hurricane Nate (2011), I have nominated it for Did you know, which will hopefully result in the article appearing on the main page. The nominations is here. Thanks, Matty.007 19:46, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi, the Wall Street Journal reference doesn't exist, and I couldn't find any cached versions over Google. Any ideas? Thanks, Matty.007 19:08, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 February newsletter[edit]

And so ends the most competitive first round we have ever seen, with 38 points required to qualify for round 2. Last year, 19 points secured a place; before that, 11 (2012) or 8 (2011) were enough. This is both a blessing and a curse. While it shows the vigourous good health of the competition, it also means that we have already lost many worthy competitors. Our top three scorers were:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer whose high-quality scans of rare banknotes represent an unusual, interesting and valuable contribution to Wikipedia. Most of Godot's points this round have come from a large set of pictures used in Treasury Note (1890–91).
  2. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions), a WikiCup veteran and a finalist last year, Adam is also a featured picture specialist, focusing on the restoration of historical images. This month's promotions have included a carefully restored set of artist William Russell Flint's work.
  3. United States WikiRedactor (submissions), another WikiCup newcomer. WikiRedactor has claimed points for good article reviews and good articles relating to pop music, many of which were awarded bonus points. Articles include Sky Ferreira, Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus and "Wrecking Ball" (Miley Cyrus song).

Other competitors of note include:

After such a competitive first round, expect the second round to also be fiercely fought. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 1 but before the start of round 2 can be claimed in round 2, but please do not update your submission page until March (UTC). Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs!

WikiCup 2014 March newsletter[edit]

A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.

With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

WikiCup error[edit]

Hi there- this is just a quick note to apologise for a small but important mistake in the last WikiCup newsletter; it is not 64 users who will progress to the next round, but 32. J Milburn (talk) 18:42, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season[edit]

Out of curiosity, who is "we", as in "we dont use wxbell"? 38.105.174.189 (talk) 16:32, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) He meant the wikipedia editors who edit the article. The biggest problem we have with the seasonal forecasting stuff is whos prediction to include and who not too, since it seems that the market has exploded over the last few year with forecasts.Jason Rees (talk) 17:31, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 April newsletter[edit]

Round 3 of the 2014 WikiCup has just begun; 32 competitors remain. Pool G's Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Round 2's highest scorer, with a large number of featured picture credits. In March/April, he restored star charts from Urania's Mirror, lithographs of various warships (such as SMS Gefion) and assorted other historical media. Second overall was Pool E's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose featured list Silver certificate (United States) contains dozens of scans of banknotes recently promoted to featured picture status. Third was Pool G's United States ChrisGualtieri (submissions) who has produced a large number of good articles, many, including Falkner Island, on Connecticut-related topics. Other successful participants included Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who saw three articles (including the top-importance Ian Smith) through featured article candidacies, and Washington, D.C. Caponer (submissions), who saw three lists (including the beautifully-illustrated list of plantations in West Virginia) through featured list candidacies. High-importance good articles promoted this round include narwhal from Canada Reid,iain james (submissions), tiger from Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and The Lion King from Minas Gerais Igordebraga (submissions). We also saw our first featured topic points of the competition, awarded to Nepal Czar (submissions) and Indiana Red Phoenix (submissions) for their work on the Sega Genesis topic. No points have been claimed so far for good topics or featured portals.

192 was our lowest qualifying score, again showing that this WikiCup is the most competitive ever. In previous years, 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) or 100 (2010) secured a place in Round 3. Pool H was the strongest performer, with all but one of its members advancing, while only the two highest scorers in Pools G and F advanced. At the end of June, 16 users will advance into the semi-finals. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

Outbreak images on List of North American tornadoes and tornado outbreaks[edit]

How are you creating the images in the 2010–present section? Dustin (talk) 19:38, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm using a program called QGIS. I can walk you through the steps if you want, but I do warn that it's a little complex and takes a lot of time (especially for large outbreaks). TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 20:14, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply; if you are willing to say how this works (or direct me to a tutorial of some sort), that would be helpful, but I will by no means demand it. I just noticed you and one other user were creating the images, and wanted to take part in some way. I won't be able to do anything until tomorrow afternoon (CDT), though. Thank you for taking the time to respond. Dustin (talk) 02:35, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
@TAWX13: Just wanted to say that I love those maps. Definitely something useful and worth the work. Thanks for creating those. United States Man (talk) 03:39, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:01E 2014 5day.gif. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

timeline[edit]

Why did you revert the timeline? This was included in every year's season. 68.111.70.220 (talk) 16:44, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

As I said in the edit summary, the timeline goes on its own page..Timeline of the 2014 Pacific hurricane season. Feel free to explore previous season timelines and create it if you wish. TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 16:47, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

[1] Show me how NHC advisories are wording the timeline, because I do not believe your edit summary as of yet. Also, I do not understand why you are compelled to revert every edit I contribute. Is this some pattern of behavior that I should be reporting to ANI? 68.111.70.220 (talk) 00:24, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

NHC advisories word it so here: [2]. Also, you shouldn't be making accusations. Dustin (talk) 00:30, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
That's not an accusation. That was a question. However, you are making an accusation of me for "making accusations". 68.111.70.220 (talk) 00:34, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
By that logic, I could say you are making an accusation. I never technically or literally made an accusation against you in the first place. Don't try to turn my words against me, it will not work. Dustin (talk) 00:36, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Regarding merging the timeline into the PHS, when the season is ongoing, it's best to have a timeline page. Yes, some past PHS's have been merged back in, but that was done after the season. YE Pacific Hurricane 00:38, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

If you would bother to click on the references I added to the end of the sentence, anon, you would see...

Advisory Number 8: "...AMANDA INTENSIFIES RAPIDLY AND BECOMES THE FIRST HURRICANE OF THE EASTERN PACIFIC SEASON..." source

Advisory Number 12: "...AMANDA RAPIDLY STRENGTHENS TO NEAR CATEGORY 5 INTENSITY..." source

Advisory Number 17: "...AMANDA RAPIDLY WEAKENS TO A CATEGORY 3 HURRICANE..." source

Advisory Number 18: "...AMANDA CONTINUES TO RAPIDLY WEAKEN..." source

That said, I have no vendetta against you. I reverted your edit on the 2014 Pacific hurricane season page because it's true that timelines have their own articles. I directed you on where to make it if you so wished. I reverted your edit on the recent timeline because adding the degree in which the system strengthened (rapidly) provided context. So feel free to bring it up on the ANI if you wish; you won't get far. TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 00:42, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

I believe this concerns you. Dustin (talk) 18:14, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

How did you make the update to the 2014 Pacific hurricane season article so quickly[edit]

The NHC update came out only two minutes ago. How did you already make the entire update? I was watching the NHC website for the update constantly until it was released, then I went to update the article. But you had already made the entire update. Dustin (talk) 02:41, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Practice. :) TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 23:38, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Timeline references[edit]

You don't have to change around what has already been put for the authors if you have been doing this for a long time, but I have found out that it is preferred to use surname first with the "author=" parameter, so it is unnecessary for you to change what has already been put. See Template:Cite report#Description to see what I am talking about. On a sidenote, it seems that the "author" parameter is deprecated, but I have almost always used it. I don't understand if that means that it shouldn't be used anymore or if it means something else. That's all I have to say for now. Dustin (talk) 23:53, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

April 25–28, 2011 tornado outbreak map[edit]

If you don't mind, could you redo the tornado plots on the map. Sharkguy05 found three tornadoes that were mistakenly added to the April 26 section of the list page by Carlossuarez46 on May 9, 2011. They were actually from April 26, 2007 (I don't know why it took three years for anyone to notice). United States Man (talk) 23:27, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2014 Atlantic hurricane season, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cape Lookout. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

WikiCup 2014 August newsletter[edit]

The final of the 2014 WikiCup begins in a few short minutes! Our eight finalists are listed below, along with their placement in Round 4:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer, finished top of Pool A and was the round's highest scorer. Godot is a featured picture specialist, claiming large numbers of points due to high-quality scans of historical documents, especially banknotes.
  2. Scotland Casliber (submissions) is a WikiCup veteran, having been a finalist every year since 2010. In the semi-final, he was Pool B's highest scorer. Cas's points primarily come from articles on the natural sciences.
  3. Nepal Czar (submissions) was Pool A's runner-up. Czar's points come mostly from content related to independent video games, including both articles and topics.
  4. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Pool B's runner-up. Another featured picture specialist, many of Adam's points come from the restoration of historical media. He has been a WikiCup finalist twice before.
  5. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) won the WikiCup in 2012 and 2013, and enters this final as the first wildcard. She focuses on biology-related articles, and has worked on several high-importance articles.
  6. Florida 12george1 (submissions) is the second wildcard. George's points come primarily from meteorology-related articles. This year and last year, George was the first person in the competition to score.
  7. Colorado Sturmvogel 66 (submissions), the third wildcard, was the 2010 champion and a finalist last year. His writes mostly on military history, especially naval history.
  8. Canada Bloom6132 (submissions), the fourth and final wildcard, has participated in previous WikiCups, but not reached any finals. Bloom's points are mostly thanks to did you knows, featured lists and good articles related to sport and national symbols.

We say goodbye to this year's semi-finalists. Herm Matty.007 (submissions), Ohio ThaddeusB (submissions), United States WikiRedactor (submissions), Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), Greece Yellow Evan (submissions), Portugal Prism (submissions) and Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) have all performed well to reach this stage of the competition, and we hope they will all be joining us again next year.

There are two upcoming competitions unrelated to the WikiCup which may be of interest to those who receive this newsletter. The Stub Contest will run through September, and revolves around expanding stub articles, especially high-importance or old stubs. In addition, a proposal has been made for a new competition, the GA Cup, which the organisers plan to run next year. This competition is based on the WikiCup and aims to reduce the good article review backlog.

There is now a thread for brainstorming on how next year's WikiCup competition should work. Please come along and share your thoughts- What works? What doesn't work? What needs changing? Signups for next year's competition will be open soon; we will be in touch. If, at this stage of the competition, you are keen to help the with the WikiCup, please do what you can to participate in review processes. Our finalists will find things much easier if the backlogs at good article candidates, featured article candidates, featured picture candidates and the rest are kept at a minimum. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

WikiCup 2015 is just around the corner...[edit]

Hello everyone, and may we wish you all a happy holiday season. As you will probably already know, the 2015 WikiCup begins in the new year; there is still time to sign up. We have a few important announcements concerning the future of the WikiCup.

  • We would like to announce that Josh (J Milburn) and Ed (The ed17), who have been WikiCup judges since 2009 and 2010 respectively, are stepping down. This decision has been made for a number of reasons, but the main one is time. Both Josh and Ed have found that, over the previous year, they have been unable to devote the time necessary to the WikiCup, and it is not likely that they will be able to do this in the near future. Furthermore, new people at the helm can only help to invigorate the WikiCup and keep it dynamic. Josh and Ed will still be around, and will likely be participating in the Cup this following year as competitors, which is where both started out.
  • In a similar vein, we hope you will all join us in welcoming Jason (Sturmvogel 66) and Christine (Figureskatingfan), who are joining Brian (Miyagawa) to form the 2015 WikiCup judging team. Jason is a WikiCup veteran, having won in 2010 and finishing in fifth this year. Christine has participated in two WikiCups, reaching the semi-finals in both, and is responsible for the GA Cup, which she now co-runs.
  • The discussions/polls concerning the next competition's rules will be closed soon, and rules changes will be made clear on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring and talk pages. While it may be impossible to please everyone, the judges will make every effort to ensure that the new rules are both fair and in the best interests of the competition, which is, first and foremost, about improving Wikipedia.

If you have any questions or concerns, the judges can be reached on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, on their talk pages, or by email. We hope you will all join us in trying to make the 2015 WikiCup the most productive and enjoyable yet. You are receiving this message because you are listed on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Trophy.png

Round one of the 2015 WikiCup has begun! So far we've had around 80 signups, which close on February 5. If you have not already signed up and want to do so, then you can add your name here. There have been changes to to several of the points scores for various categories, and the addition of Peer Reviews for the first time. These will work in the same manner as Good Article Reviews, and all of the changes are summarised here.

Remember that only the top 64 scoring competitors will make it through to the second round, and one of the new changes this year is that all scores must be claimed within two weeks of an article's promotion or appearance, so don't forget to add them to your submissions pages! If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, and you hope to get it promoted before the end of the round, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews at GAN, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges are reachable on their talk pages. Good luck!

Re: U.S. Tornado pages.[edit]

Not really sure what you're talking about. I recently filled in some tables in May/April 2014 that were incomplete and that's about it. I hardly ever bother editing the tornado counts here because they are so inaccurate. I focus on the damage and building constructions details, the synopsis of the tornado path for more significant events, and occasionally improve sourcing or location accuracy. Do what you want with the totals, just don't mess with my summaries, sources, or locations while you're doing it. Sharkguy05 (talk) 18:50, 12 January 2015 (UTC)Sharkguy05

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader Australia Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge, Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:

You may also wish to know that The Core Contest is running through the month of March. Head there for further details - they even have actual prizes!

WikiCup 2015 May newsletter[edit]

C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) is a long-period comet discovered on 17 August 2014 by Terry Lovejoy; and is one of several Featured Pictures worked up by India The Herald (submissions) during the second round.

The second round one has all wrapped up, and round three has now begun! Congratulations to the 34 contestants who have made it through, but well done and thank you to all contestants who took part in our second round. Leading the way overall was Belarus Cas Liber (submissions) in Group B with a total of 777 points for a variety of contributions including Good Articles on Corona Borealis and Microscopium - both of which received the maximum bonus.

Special credit must be given to a number of high importance articles improved during the second round.

The points varied across groups, with the lowest score required to gain automatic qualification was 68 in Group A - meanwhile the second place score in Group H was 404, which would have been high enough to win all but one of the other Groups! As well as the top two of each group automatically going through to the third round, a minimum score of 55 was required for a wildcard competitor to go through. We had a three-way tie at 55 points and all three have qualified for the next round, in the spirit of fairness. The third round ends on June 28, with the top two in each group progressing automatically while the remaining 16 highest scorers across all four groups go through as wildcards. Good luck to all competitors for the third round! Figureskatingfan (talk · contribs · email), Miyagawa (talk · contribs · email) and Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email) 16:49, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Your edit in the 2015 Atl hurricane season article[edit]

Hi. I see you reverted my edit from the 2015 Atlantic hurricane season about 'the first storm since 2012's Tropical Storm Alberto/Beryl'. Isn't it Alberto? I didn't get what you mean about the instance. Otherwise I'll change the sentence back to: the first storm in 2012., without mentioning Alberto/Beryl since we don't need to explain or give more detail about another storm in another season. Have a good day editing Subtropical Storm Ana, lol. :) Typhoon2013 (talk) 04:55, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Beryl occurred from May 26 to May 30; Alberto occurred from May 19 to May 22. Since the sentence reads "becoming the first such pre-season tropical storm since...", it should be Beryl. Also, the way the sentence is currently structured is incorrect coordination (the subject deals with pre-season storms, so simply saying "2012" does not make sense). 2012 is not a pre-season storm.
Oh now I get it. Just take note that I am just a young teenager here so I might not understand things easily. But yes, Ok I'll accept that sentence. Typhoon2013 (talk) 23:35, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Edit summaries on EPac 5day track[edit]

Not to be rude or anything, but I just wanted to say that when you update EPac storms for its 5day forecast track, as you did to Andres' 5day forecast track, don't say 'update'. Instead, say the number of its advisory so I (or other users) know what Advisory you have updated, otherwise the track will (or might) mislead people. Thanks. Typhoon2013 (talk) 05:02, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Please see commons:User talk:TropicalAnalystwx13#File names[edit]

References[edit]

I undid your revert of (I believe, United States Man) because there are many other pages using that exact same format, and I don't like everything to be inconsistent. Unless you are planning to go around and change every Wikipedia using that format, I don't really like the idea of changing format again. We need to establish a certain reference format and stick to it. So please tell me, why the change? Dustin (talk) 20:48, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

I am aware that other pages use the format seeing as I'm the one that started the usage of the |work= parameter. However, using it in the way I have been is incorrect according to other members of the project, and we've decided just to abandon the usage altogether seeing as they don't use it anyways. To top it off, using the parameter in conjunction with |publisher= and |location= creates an inaccuracy. For example...

<ref>{{cite web|author=Michael J. Brennan|title=Hurricane Blanca Public Advisory Number 9|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2015/ep02/ep022015.public.009.shtml|publisher=National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration|work=National Hurricane Center|date=June 2, 2015|accessdate=June 2, 2015|location=Miami, Florida}}</ref>

will yield...

Michael J. Brennan. (May 31, 2015). Hurricane Blanca Public Advisory Number 9. National Hurricane Center (Report) (Miami, Florida: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). Retrieved May 31, 2015.

...which is incorrect, because NOAA is not based in Miami, Florida, the NHC is. TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 20:58, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I see... well, thanks for the explanation. I just picked up the format when I first started editing tropical cyclone season timelines, so I didn't realize there was something wrong. Dustin (talk) 21:01, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Tornado list link[edit]

I noticed that you added a link with this revision. I understand why you did this, but could it not be argued that this is already covered by the {{2015 tornado months}} template?
