Go on weather.com and click on Hurricane Herman. Then click on the link that says then click on Cristina. You will soon get the tracker. After you finish looking at it . Click on Douglas, I am right.

2006 Pacific hurricane season

Hurricane Elida

Hi there! I noticed that you changed a redirect to point to your sandbox article on Elida. Please don't do this; if you want to continue working on your article without making it an article in the main article space, keep it in the sandbox and don't redirect anything to it. The main space is only for things that you think are useful and you feel others should feel free to work on it. When you're ready to release it as a main-space article, ask an administrator to move it on top of the redirect. I recommend asking others for help before you do this, though - the standards for tropical cyclone articles are pretty high because we have a lot of knowlegable people in WikiProject Tropical cyclones. Happy editing! —AySz88\^-^ 00:01, 7 September 2008 (UTC)


My Cyclone Page

I known that you are trying to help but can you please stop editing my cyclone page! --Elena85 | Talk to Me | 1000 edits!!!' 12:49, 2 September 2008 (UTC)


Meteorological history of Hurricane Ioke

I noticed that you've been hastily creating articles, which aren't of very good quality. An example of this is Meteorological history of Hurricane Ioke, whose title is spelled incorrectly, which I presume is a result of haste. Another thing I noticed in that article is that it's a copy and past of an existing article, which is generally discouraged. While you can easily move that article to its correct title, I think redirecting it to the original article would suffice. One more thing; if an article you have created has been merged, redirected or tagged for deletion of any kind, you should not revert without first discussing with the person who preformed the action. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on my talk page.

Happy editing, and I hope to see you at the Tropical Cyclones WikiProject! –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 21:06, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Please Try to Make It a Non-Copy

Please do not just copy and paste the article! If you continue to do that all the articles will be redirected! Please do not just copy! Most EPac storms are fish-spinners so just because Hernan is the strongest storm of the season doesn't mean that it should have a article. --Elena85 | Talk to Me | 1000 edits!!!' 01:55, 7 September 2008 (UTC) Even if you just organize the article, try to make it longer that it. If you want, change all articles to the new infobox, I know that this is not the best but it is better. --Elena85 | Talk to Me | 1000 edits!!!' 12:47, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Make A Sandbox

If you want to make articles until they are long enough and spell checked, make a sandbox, maybe at User:Yellow Evan/Sandbox. There you can make long articles that have decent storm history that is longer than it's section in the main article and has at least 3 paragraphs!

Please Respond!!! --Elena85 | Talk to Me | 1000 edits!!!' 18:27, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

List of Pacific hurricanes

Your recent edit to List of Pacific hurricanes made the article worse. Please try and make your edits more constructive. When people merge your articles, try and consider why they are being merged. If you are working on articles in user space, make sure they are at least three paragraphs long, and please move the sandbox - copying and pasting is bad! ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 21:58, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Please don't revert my latest change to Great Mazatlán Hurricane. You don't own the article, and every time you change the article, you add back several problematic things. If you continue reverting without reason, you could get blocked for policy violation. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 22:25, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Also, as to your comment about the single table in Hurricane Ioke, please keep in mind that table is for Category 5 Pacific hurricanes, of which Ioke was one of only a handful. The tables you are adding are poorly sourced, and aren't a definitive set. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 22:26, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Hurricane Boris 2008 and Hurricane Elida 2008 articles

Yellow Evan, sorry to tell you this, but please STOP remaking these articles, none of them meet notability and there is precedent to having articles on East Pacific storms that did nothing. If you could be so kind to have a thoughtful discussion about this, please post on WT:WPTC. Otherwise, for now - leave the two alone or I will report them to Wikipedia:Requests for page protection. Thanks. Mitch32(UP) 22:44, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: Elida

I'm sorry, I don't understand. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 00:27, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Warning

Yellow Evan, I'm going to ask you to stop again. You're being disruptive to the Wikipedia community; you've been blocked twice for edit warring and once for editing disruption, yet you continue to edit war, ignore consensus, and refuse to take note of other editors' guidance. The articles you create violate Wikipedia policy, and/or WPTC standards. If an article you have created has been merged in good-faith, whether as a result of a merge discussion or at the judgment of an individual editor, you cannot revert without a justified reason to do so, or a discussion on the talk page. Additionally, if an editor adds cleanup tags to the articles you have created, you are not to remove them without addressing the issues, or proving that the issue at hand does not exist. If you continue in this disruptive manner, you may be blocked for continually longer periods of time. Thank you. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 00:27, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

My Userpage

Do not edit my userpage, it is my personal page, and the info on their is what I put myself. If you want to have something changed on there, don't just edit it because it's not a mainspace page.

You're not the boss

Excuse me, I didn't know you suddenly took control over what I can and can't do. For one, I can create any article I feel like making, second you are not in a position to be remotely close to telling people to work on a certain topic, third, learn how to write using proper spelling and grammar, and fourth listen to what people say when they give input on your edits, because it's really annoying to many of us that you're ignoring our comments and doing exactly what we asked you not to do.

Last warning

I see that you removed my message last night; that doesn't make the warning non-existent. It shows me that you read the comment, and that you know how to edit while adhering to policy. This edit reverted the merging of an article you created, which was done so as the result of a talk page discussion. This article, along with the dozens of others you have created, violate many, many Wikipedia policies, and/or WPTC standards. You as an editor have to discuss the matter on the talk page before ignoring consensus, and refusing the listen to other editors' guidance. If you continue in this destructive manner of editing, you will be blocked. Cheers, –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 13:54, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Regarding that message your mother wrote, can you make sure she reads my response? Also, I suggest that you wait before creating more articles, as Nora seems to need too much work to be published at the moment. Thank you. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 23:09, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Re: EPAC Storms

Its simple there is not enough infomation for the EPAC, to support articles for all EPAC Storms weather they be fishspinners or not. Jason Rees (talk) 15:32, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Warning re.

I'm quite sure that it doesn't matter. Most of my work is done in one edit anyways, Also, I couldn't move the sandbox because the article had been previously made, for Elida, you made an article which was merged, and douglas was a redirect page. I don't think you should be giving me warnings though, pay more attention to your actions and avoid being banned yourself. I can take care of myself and if I'm doing anything wrong an admin like Juliancolton will notify me of such actions. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 14:11, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

It's too late now anyways, both articles are completed and rated GA. Don't worry about the edit history too much. I don't think it really is all that important. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 14:19, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Please read

Sorry for taking so long to respond. First of all, please stop creating the new articles. None of them are needed, and none of them are any good. Hurricane Max (2005), for example, is not at all needed; it is extremely short, and the overall writing is poor. As such, it should stay merged. As I've said before, you are in the process of making enemies. I asked you before, but you ignored - have you gone through grade school writing and grammar? If so, please, write better the first around, and avoid the spelling and grammar mistakes. If not, then I suggest you avoid writing for a while, until you learn how to write. Regarding the Pacific hurricanes article, you must create a discussion to get people to agree with you. If no one agrees, or if no one knows about it, then you could been as disruptive. So, to recap, please stop making new articles, and please allow your old ones to be redirected. None of them are any good, and it just creates more work for other people to clean up. If you're looking for a storm that has a lot of info, why not try Hurricane Iris? I know it already exists, but it could give you the chance to work with a pretty significant storm, and one for which your efforts would not be wasted on. The key to making a good article is to find every piece of information available on the storm, and research very thoroughly. That means doing a Google search for "Hurricane Iris", using and citing every useful link you can find. Note, you'll have to cite, which means reading over WP:CITE and doing it correctly, or by using the formats established by other articles (check out Hurricane Lane (2006), which is featured). So recapping once more - please don't make any new articles, and instead work on Hurricane Iris. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 02:56, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Please respond as soon as you read this. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 03:09, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm only trying to help you out. First of all, Max isn't that notable for absorbing Linda, and even if it was, you cannot have an article that short and stubby. This may be a free encyclopedia, but you need to realize you don't own your articles. Hilary, Max, and Otis are all unneeded, although Otis is the most notable out of the three (which is why it hasn't been merged yet). I strongly suggest you stop making any new articles, since nearly all of them have been merged by various project members, simply because all of them are poor, unneeded articles. Regarding that list of articles you think should be made, I don't think any of them need articles at the moment. Personally, I think the best thing for you would be to improve an existing article, which is why I suggested Hurricane Iris. The storm has a ton of information available, but the article is rather poor. I'm telling you this because I don't want you to leave the project. I want you to be useful, and I believe you can be in the future. But right now, you are creating more work than what it is necessary, by making the new articles. I hope you read and understand what I am saying. I am willing to help, but I can't do 100%. I hope you take faith in what I am saying. I have been here for over three years, and I know my way around the place. To be honest, I am working on finding enthusiastic editors who could be great editors in the future, and I believe you are one of them. Cheers. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 03:37, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
Ekeka could probably stay, but that's not important. Yellow Evan, please read my post again. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:02, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm telling you, that is a bad policy. You haven't written a good article yet. I don't know what MH is, but it is probably a bad idea. Please read what I said again. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:22, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

I have to agree with Hurricanehink here on most points. Creating new stub storm articles that contain no more information than already exists within the season articles, does not help. Just because a topic (storm) is notable does not mean we need a stub article on it if the information can be presented better in a list (seasonal) format. Take some time to work on improving your writing and researching skills by working on existing articles to improve them. Talk to experienced editors for guidance, and consider their advice seriously; joining the IRC channel can help speed this up. — jdorje (talk) 03:35, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Yellow Evan, I'm telling you, it doesn't matter how much you try fixing articles up. You cannot write good articles, and stubs like this are polluting the project by creating more work. As an aside, Boris and the Mazatlan hurricane still exist only because other editors worked on them. Fausto is far from good, as it is merely a copy of the tropical cyclone report. And so I'll say it once again - it doesn't matter how much you try fixing your articles up. You are fighting a losing argument by trying to keep Hurricane Hillary (2005) (which is misspelled, BTW). Fausto could be on the way to being merged, as well. PLEASE stop making the new articles. Instead, as Jdorje said, take some time to work on improving your writing and researching skills by working on existing articles to improve them.

Now, I have a question for you. Would you be opposed to talking with the rest of the WPTC editors online? We have sort of a chatroom on Internet Relay Chat, but it's reserved to only WPTC members, and so I am formally inviting you to join. You just have to click on this link; when it says "Connect to IRC:" click on the dropbox and change it to freenode.net (it's pretty far down the list). Then, under Nick: put your name, and under Channel(s): put #wiki-hurricanes. I hope you join, so we can talk to you. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 14:44, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

We really want to to talk to you on the IRC. We think you have potential to be a great editor, but you're not doing so well right now. If you come on to the IRC, we can show you how to make a great article, all by yourself. It's a bit tedious to show through talk pages. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 17:32, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
And I'll say again, we really want to talk to you, just so you realize we're all part of a team, and not just individual editors. We have certain standards, and you aren't meeting them. I really suggest you stop writing articles for now, and instead learn how to improve existing articles. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 18:03, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
It's clear you're on right now. There are a group of editors who would like to help you out, but it's cumbersome having to do it on talk page. For example, we are talking about how you should not have moved that depression article. Please just come on for a little while. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 18:13, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Ugh, please stop with the new articles. I see you plan on making Meteorological history of Hurricane Guillermo (1997), and I can assure you that will be redirected as soon as it is published. Please, take a look back at what you are creating. Every subject does not need an article. Please, stop wasting your time, and instead work on an existing article. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:22, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes, please follow our suggestions. For why you should, consider this analogy: Which would you rather have, (1) twenty leaky drafty houses that are in ruins and that you built yourself? Or (2) one other house that while not a mansion or created by you at least keeps you warm and dry? I would take the second choice and I know you and everyone would take the second choice. Change houses to articles and you will see why you shouldn't keep creating articles the way you are. By learning the ropes on an existing article you will eventually be able to make houses rather than rubble. And if this dispute escalates further, it may eventually get to Requests for comment. Trust me, you don't want to go there. I would never send my worst enemy there. I personally offer to help you work on an existing article. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 00:38, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Yellow Evan, would you mind explaining this edit? It is factually incorrect, and adding incorrect information can be seen as vandalism. If you continue doing edits such as that, you could get blocked. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 21:49, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I redirected the article for Guillermo's met. history. There is NO need for the article, since, as we went through with Hurricane Ioke, removing the met. history would make the main article too short. Please stop making the new articles. Please, just stop. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 23:25, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean that Guillermo's met. history in the main article isn't good, or just the article that you made? Yea, working on Hurricane Kathleen (1976) would be a great idea. We have project resources that should be able to help, and I'm sure a thorough Google search would help a lot. Let me know if you need help. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 14:17, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

It's pretty clear

Not to be harsh, but you're not helping the project any. Do you have any other interests? Who knows, you could benefit with them. I, and the project do feel that you should either start following standards or stop creating articles which are just hurting the project. Several people have suggested mentorship, but right now you're driving the project downhill. If you could reply, or contact me on Internet Relay Chat or e-mail me. It would be benefcial to the project if you start listening to the people who have suggested what to do. Otherwise, please STOP recreating articles and doing all the stuf you are doing, its becoming huge pain in the butt.Mitch32(UP) 18:59, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: 1939 California tropical storm

This article is unique in its title, but it should be kept where it is, primarily for the fact that it is most notable for making landfall on California as a tropical storm. It did not make landfall as a hurricane, nor did many people even know it was a hurricane. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 22:54, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Stop

Yellow Evan, please listen to me. You are creating extremely poor and stubby articles, which are a blight to the project. You're not being helpful, rather, you're slowing the project down. When WPTC redirects one of your articles, there will have been a consensus to do so, and when you revert such a change, your edits borderline vandalism. I'm going to ask you again. Please stop creating articles until you gain a knowledge of Wikipedia's core policies, and you learn what an article should be, and more importantly, don't revert an article against consensus. Thank you. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 21:56, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Are you reading what we are telling you? Do you even care? Do not revert a merging of one of your articles against a project consensus. You are vandalizing, edit warring, and you can be blocked if you continue. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 12:55, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

GA review for Hurricane Ekeka (1992)

You did not do the GA review correctly for the aforementioned storm, and so I reverted some of your recent edits that passed the article. Additionally, you are not supposed to assess/review articles which you had significant involvement. Please read up more about policy. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:29, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

I know you are new, but you are not following anyone's advice. Everyone has asked you to stop writing articles for the time being, and to stop editing without asking anyone else what to do. You should not review for the GA process at the time, since you are so new to the project. As we said before, please take some time reading up on policy, and taking note of what makes an article good, poor, and even featured. BTW, your edits to Hurricane Kathleen (1976) were not good - you removed references and added new, unsourced information. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 23:33, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Tropical Storm Lowell (2008)

Why did you add so much information for Ike to the article? The remnants joined, but the damage was related to Ike. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 02:27, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Please check out this revision. First of all, please learn to write better. I have no idea what your edit summary meant - it merged with Ike dd I do not think you want it to be Second, you added back in a redirected link, which goes to Hurricane Ike. Third, Lowell was a very minimal tropical storm, which was absorbed by the front which later impacted the mid-west. Thus, the impact in Chicago was not directly related to Lowell. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:15, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

What does that even mean about Maria? You are responsible for every edit you make. Please learn to spell better - in fact, have you even passed elementary school English classes? ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:35, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
He appears to have an understanding of (some) basic grammar, so I don't think it is a fundamental language problem. The spelling errors are random - he often spells the same word three or four different ways - which makes me believe that it is simply carelessness. Or vandalism. Plasticup T/C 04:45, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
What does Maria have to do with anything? Lowell was a minimal tropical storm, that hardly anyone knew about nor cared about once its remnants reached the midwest, since Ike was the dominant factor. Maria was a powerful hurricane, which was widely known as a contributor to the remnants in the Europe. I'll ask again. Have you even passed elementary school English classes? ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 13:56, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
I am only deleting a few redirects to the main space, some general cleanup. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:47, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm going to post this again, because I don't like how you removed it, but I also added to it. Are you are still in elementary school? If so (you don't need to answer), then Wikipedia is probably not the place for you. The site is an encyclopedia, meaning good writing and research skills are expected. It doesn't appear you can write or research well - no offense, but your typos are outrageous, and in all of your articles you almost solely relied on the TCR. You don't know policy at all. On the page for discussing the deletion of the hurricane main template, you voted five times (four times you said keep, and one time you said merge), which certainly isn't helping the process. Additionally, it doesn't appear you can take criticism or people telling you what's best. I hope you take the time to think about this. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 14:50, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

I still hope you respond to the above. Also, the hurricane main template would look the exact same as the main template, if it was redirected. Nothing would change, except for no more bold. You voted four times on that page, which is votestacking - such an offense is highly frowned upon, and if you do that again, you could get blocked. Again, please respond to the above post. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:07, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
Also, do you actually plan on working on Norman, or do you just plan on doing some minor but problematic edits, as you did to Hurricane Kathleen (1976) (which actually made the article worse). Once more, please respond to what I said above. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:10, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
I really didn't understand what you just said. If you don't want to talk about this on Wikipedia, could you come onto the IRC? Click here. Then, where it says IRC: click to the right of that, then scroll down to freenode.net. Next to nick: type your name in, and under Channel(s): type in #wiki-hurricanes.

Fake Ella

Hi, Yellow Evan. Just so you know, I put "Elena" on my fake hurricane naming list, not "Ella." Also, "Erika" is replacing Elena, not "Emilia." And "Erin" is on List 3 and "Esther" is on List 5.

Tropical Storm Dora

Tropical Storm Dora
Tropical Storm (SSHWS/NWS)
TS Dora 2005.jpg
Dora near peak intensity.
Formed July 22, 2007
Dissipated July 27, 2007
Highest winds 1-minute sustained: 45 mph (75 km/h)
Lowest pressure 1003 mbar (hPa); 29.62 inHg
Fatalities None Reported
Areas affected Mexican Rivera
Part of the 2005 Pacific hurricane season

Dora was a tropical storm that effected Mexico as a minimal tropical storm.

Meteorological History

Map plotting the track and intensity of the storm, according to the Saffir–Simpson scale

A tropical wave left Africa on June 14. It moved westward without any deep convection. It continued through the Caribbean and crossed Central America on July 1 and entered the Eastern pacific Ocean shortly thereafter. The wave turned north as it began to organize. Finally on July 3 the NHC classified the wave as Tropical Depression Four-E and Tropical Cyclone Watches and Warnings were issued.

Upon becoming a tropical cyclone, land was in the way which could have weakened the cyclone. Instead, It became better organized and was upgraded to Tropical Storm Dora six hours later. Shortly thereafter, Dora reached a peak of 45 mph.

Twelve hors after its peak, it became a 40 mph Tropical Storm while effecting Mexican States like Guerrero. On July 6 Dora made it closest approach to Mexico, coming within 45 miles. Later that day, It regained peak intensity later that day, but it was downgraded to a 35 mph tropical depression and all warnings and watches were discontinued. It dissipated on July 6.

Impact

Dora brought heavy rains washing out roadways, but no damage was reported.

Many watches and warnings were issued from Acapulco to La Fortuna. On July 4A 45 mph wind report from ship H9UY (Nikkei Phoenix) located 20 miles east of the center was useful in determining the peak intensity of Dora. A 35 mph wind report on July 2 from ship 4XFQ located 35 miles southeast of the center was helpful in estimating the extent of tropical storm-force winds.

After Dora began to interact with the mountainous terrain of coastal Mexico on July 5, satellite-based automated objective Dvorak T-numbers from the University of Wisconsin’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (UW-CIMSS) produced overestimated intensity values of 40-50 kt. These inflated values were likely due to enhanced convective development caused by the southerly upslope flow on the east side of Dora.

Just in case this is about my 1984 Planet Ceres Atlantic hurricane season, I think that's a good idea. However, I do think it's fair to give you a shot.

3 things,

  • first of all it's Ceres not Ceaser and
  • the hurricane list is of 1995 see my talk page for details about the list, it should be at archive 2 and
  • and third of all, please do not mess around with my user talk pages. I use that template so that I can keep track of it.

First of all (fourth if you count Elena85's warnings), please do not merge Tropical Storm "Daylan" (which you misspelled: it's "Dylan," not "Daylan"). And second of all, I agree with you on the grounds that the season is rather stubby, but it was fictional, and I am not finished. Plus, I'd rather Dylan stay where it's at. You may continue editing the seasons, but please be careful.

On the grounds of your fake season, as a result of the large amount of differences between what happened on Planet Ceres and what you created, I'll make up Planet "Ceser" and let you create all of that planet's seasons. Enjoy. Dylan620 Life story 17:36 UTC October 3, 2008

You might be interested in this discussion on the WPTC talk page. It deals with the fake season articles, and how they are being considered to be eliminated.

Storm of the month

Hurricane BerthaHurricane Bertha near peak intensity]]

Hurricane Bertha was a rare early season Cape Verde-type hurricane and the easternmost forming July tropical storm on record. Bertha became the longest-lived pre-August Atlantic tropical cyclone on record and the longest-lived tropical cyclone in the Atlantic Basin since Ivan in 2004. The second named storm of the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season, Bertha developed from a tropical wave that emerged off the coast of Africa on July 1. After initially remaining weak while tracking westward, Bertha began to strengthen on July 6, and the next day it quickly intensified to reach peak winds of 120 mph (195 km/h). The hurricane weakened during the day on July 8, and after turning to a northwest drift, it passed within 40 miles (64 km) of Bermuda on July 14 before moving northeast away from the island. Bertha became extratropical on July 20 to the east of Newfoundland, after causing minimal damage and three indirect drowning deaths.

Other tropical cyclone activity

  • Northwestern Pacific Ocean – After several weeks of no activity, Typhoon Kalmaegi developed in the middle of the month, passing near northern Luzon before turning to the north and making landfalls on Taiwan and China; the typhoon caused heavy crop damage and 18 deaths. Later in the month, Typhoon Fung-Wong caused further flooding in Taiwan and China. In addition to the two named typhoons, PAGASA issued advisories on Tropical Depression Gener early in the month.
  • Eastern Pacific Ocean – Four named storms developed in the basin during the month, of which three became hurricanes; Hurricanes Elida, Fausto, and Genevieve, as well as Tropical Storm Douglas, all remained offshore, though in the middle of the month a tropical depression brought rainfall to Mexico after hitting near Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán. Hurricane Boris and Tropical Storm Cristina continued from the previous month.
  • Atlantic Ocean– In addition to Hurricane Bertha, two other tropical cyclones developed in the month. Tropical Storm Cristobal formed off the coast of Florida, bringing rainfall and gusty winds to coastal North Carolina and later Nova Scotia. The most damaging Atlantic tropical cyclone during the month was Hurricane Dolly, which formed on July 20 in the western Caribbean Sea. After tracking northwestward through the Gulf of Mexico, it reached peak winds of 100 mph (155 km/h) before moving ashore on South Padre Island, Texas. The hurricane caused flash flooding from heavy rainfall, with damage in the United States estimated at $1.2 billion; across its path Dolly caused 21 deaths, including 17 from landslides in Guademala, as well as two indirect fatalities.

Project News
During July, there were two large changes to the operations of the WikiProject. First, WPTC adopted and helped develop the WP 1.0 B-Class criteria, and was among the first projects to use a "forced" B-Class rubric as part of their assessment schemes. This means that all the articles tagged with {{hurricane|class=B|...}} are automatically reassessed as {{C-Class}}, unless all the values in the checklist are marked as passed. In other words, to mark an article as B-Class, the banner needs to be changed to

{{hurricane |class=B |B1=yes |B2=yes  |B3=yes |B4=yes |B5=yes |B6=yes | ... }}

B1, B2, B3, B4, B5 and B6 stand for each of the six points in the WikiProject's rubric. The banner also has the capability to mark why an article doesn't meet the new B-Class standards: Typing the following in an article's talk page

{{hurricane |class=B |B1=no |B2=yes |B3=yes |B4=yes |B5=yes |B6=yes | ... }}

will assess an article as C-Class, and mark that the article is not a B because of bad references.

Articles assessed as B's before the introduction of the forced checklist were automatically reassessed as C's, but they're awaiting new reviews to check if they still meet the new B criteria. These articles are listed on Category:Tropical cyclone articles with incomplete B-Class checklists. Currently, there's 117 articles in the category—let's try to shrink that number to zero before the next edition of the Herald!

The other major change to the WikiProject was the addition of three task forces: the storm articles task force, season articles task force, and the tropical meteorology articles task force. These three task forces allow WPTC to see the progress of the different areas of the WikiProject. Currently, all 1,076 WPTC articles have been assigned to one of the three task forces, but any unsorted articles will be placed in Category:Unsorted tropical cyclone articles as they're tagged with {{hurricane}}.

In order to categorize an article, the banner needs to be modified from {{hurricane|...}} to:

{{hurricane |storms-task-force=yes | ... }}
{{hurricane |seasons-task-force=yes | ... }}
{{hurricane |meteo-task-force=yes | ... }}

which will sort the pages into the storms, seasons, and tropical meteorology task forces, respectively.

Storm of the month

Hurricane GustavHurricane Gustav at landfall in western Cuba at peak strength

Hurricane Gustav was a deadly and damaging hurricane which formed late in the month in the Caribbean Sea. It first struck Haiti on August 26 as a minimal hurricane, where it killed 76 people and damaged or destroyed over 10,000 houses. Gustav turned to the southwest, moving over Jamaica where it killed 11 people. The hurricane rapidly intensified to reach peak winds of 150 mph (240 km/h) before making landfall on western Cuba; in the country, Gustav damaged or destroyed over 100,000 houses, though no deaths were reported due to well-executed evacuations. In the Gulf of Mexico, Gustav weakened due to its previous land interaction, and on September 1 it made landfall in south-central Louisiana as a Category 2 hurricane, where it caused heavy damage. Across its path, the hurricane caused 101 deaths, with an initial damage total of $20 billion.

Other tropical cyclone activity

  • Atlantic Ocean– In addition to Gustav, three other tropical cyclones formed. Early in the month, Tropical Storm Edouard caused light damage when it moved ashore along Texas. In the middle of the month, Tropical Storm Fay formed over Hispaniola and later crossed over Cuba into the Gulf of Mexico; throughout the Caribbean it caused 25 deaths. Fay struck southwestern Florida, moved across the state, turned to the west, and moved across the Florida panhandle, making a record four landfalls on the state. The storm dropped 27.65 inches (702.1 mm) of rain in Melbourne, making Fay the fourth wettest Florida tropical cyclone. In the end of the month, Hurricane Hanna formed northeast of the Lesser Antilles; its impact will be covered in the next month's summary.
  • Eastern Pacific Ocean – Four named storms developed in the basin during the month, including Tropical Storm Kika, which was the first Central Pacific tropical cyclone since Ioke in 2006. Hurricane Hernan was the strongest hurricane of the month in the basin, reaching Category 3 status while remaining away from land. Tropical Storm Iselle lasted for a few days, but did not affect land. Tropical Storm Julio made landfall on Baja California Sur, producing heavy rainfall and causing two deaths.
  • Northwestern Pacific Ocean – The month began with Tropical Storm Kammuri forming and hitting southern China; the storm killed 140 people, mostly in neighboring Vietnam, and damage totaled $120 million (USD). Tropical Storms Phanfone and Vongfone lasted for a few days out at sea, before Typhoon Nuri formed and struck northern Luzon, causing 12 deaths.
  • 2008 North Indian Ocean cyclone season – A depression formed and struck Odisha.

Version 0.7
This month, several of the WikiProject's articles were selected for the Version 1.0 Editorial Team's Version 0.7 static release. The article selection occurs using an automated process using WikiProjects' quality and importance assessments. For WPTC, this means that 29 articles will be part of this release, an increase from 13 in the previous release. It should be noted that these numbers are based on preliminary data that can change based on updates to the database and corrections to the selection algorithm and WP:1.0's cut-off score.

The list of articles chosen for the release can be seen here. Of the selection, almost half of the articles are already featured, and eleven are good articles. There one B-Class article (1970 Bhola cyclone, two C-Class articles (Hurricane Andrew, Cyclone Nargis), and two Start-Class articles (Pacific typhoon, Hurricane Rita). As these articles will be published in a CD, it is imperative that the project improve them quickly.

The full list of all the WikiProject's articles is also available here. According to that list, WPTC's highest-scoring article—Tropical cyclone—has a score of 1969, which is very good as Canada, the selection's highest-scoring article, has a score of 2,409. That said, Extreme wind warning is the least important article we have, with a score of 227, so we may have to improve it a little bit so it isn't that low...

Storm of the month

Hurricane IkeHurricane Ike over the Gulf of Mexico

Hurricane Ike was among the costliest Atlantic hurricanes on record, based on a preliminary damage estimate of $31.5 billion (USD). The ninth named storm, fifth hurricane, and third major hurricane of the 2008 season, Ike developed on September 1 in the tropical Atlantic Ocean. Maintaining a generally westward track throughout its duration, Ike reached Category 4 status on the Saffir-Simpson scale, moving across the Turks and Caicos Islands at that intensity before weakening and crossing Cuba; heavy damage was reported in Cuba, which was still recovering from Hurricane Gustav just weeks prior. Gustav later moved across the Gulf of Mexico and struck near Galveston, Texas, where its effects were estimated as the costliest hurricane in Texas history. Further inland, the storm brought high winds and widespread damage, and its impact reached as far as Canada. Throughout its path, Gustav caused over 100 deaths, mostly in Texas and Haiti, and several hundred remain missing.

Other tropical cyclone activity

  • Atlantic Ocean– In addition to Ike, two hurricanes from the previous month, Gustav and Hanna, lasted into September, both striking the United States. Tropical Storm Josephine formed while Ike and Hanna were active; it remained away from land and dissipated four days after forming. The tropics were quiet in the Atlantic for about 10 days after Ike dissipated, until Hurricane Kyle formed north of Hispaniola; its precursor brought heavy rains to the Greater Antilles, and Kyle ultimately became extratropical as it moved into Atlantic Canada. At the end of the month, Tropical Storm Laura formed from a subtropical cyclone far away from land; it persisted until early October, when it lost tropical characteristics to the southeast of Newfoundland.
  • Eastern Pacific Ocean– The month in the eastern Pacific Ocean was the quietest on record, in terms of ACE index. Early in the month, Tropical Storm Karina lasted for two days without affecting land. A few days later, Tropical Storm Lowell formed and later affected the Baja California peninsula and mainland Mexico as a tropical depression; its remnants merged with the remnants of Ike.
  • Western Pacific Ocean– Five named storms developed in the western Pacific, beginning with Typhoon Sinlaku which became a powerful cyclone before weakening and bringing heavy rainfall to Taiwan; there, it caused 11 deaths and heavy damage, and it later affected Japan. The second storm of the month was Typhoon Hagupit, which caused $1 billion (USD) in damage and 68 deaths when it struck China. Typhoon Jangmi was next, which brought further damage and deaths to Taiwan. Two more tropical storms developed during the month; Mekkhala formed in the South China Sea and caused heavy damage in Vietnam, while Higos moved across the Philippines and later struck China.
  • North Indian Ocean– One deep depression formed during the month, which moved ashore in the Indian province of Orissa; it caused 25 deaths from heavy rainfall.

Project News
Overall, the project has had a relatively uneventful month. One of the most noteworthy events was the selection of 32 tropical cyclone-related articles, that were chosen as part of Wikipedia 0.7. Wikipedia 0.7 is a collection of English Wikipedia articles due to be released on DVD, and available for free download, later this year. While many of the selected articles are of featured or good quality, several require substantial cleanup and expansion.

In other news, a handful of changes to project standards have taken place. Per a consensus on the project's talk page, the section of each tropical cyclone article previously entitled "Storm history" has been changed to "Meteorological history", thanks in part to Plasticup's bot which preformed the hundreds of edits to execute the change. In addition, a discussion is ongoing regarding the necessity of List of storms in the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season, and similar articles for other seasons.

Tropical Storm Erick (2007)

Not one edit has been made to Tropical Storm Erick (2007) since its last FAC failed. Why would you nominate it again? ESPECIALLY given the current discussions at WT:FAC and WT:WPTC, it is insulting that you would re-nominate this article only days after its controversial failure. Plasticup T/C 22:42, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

spam

Please stop spamming my talk page with deletion notices. If you want to speedy-delete an article or group (I have no idea why???) the easiest way would be to join IRC (#wiki-hurricanes on irc.freenode.org) and get one of the WPTC admins to do it. — jdorje (talk) 05:33, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Greater care required when prodding articles

Evan,

I've just been looking at some of the articles that you've proposed for deletion. Ignoring whether they need to be deleted or not, I think you need to take a bit more care when prodding. These reasons for deletion don't provide enough information and don't make your intentions clear. Please bear the guidelines in mind:

'Tailor your reason to each individual article; generic messages are not helpful. Use an informative edit summary clearly indicating that the article has been nominated for deletion.'

I'm assuming that these articles are part of a procedural mass-delete. If that is the case it might be worth asking an admin to do it in bulk rather than prodding, but if you carry on as you have been please add some background to why the article should be deleted. Even if it is copy-pasted, a brief summary like "Deleting as per discussion on project page" or similar (with a link to the discussion) is much more helpful.

Cheers and happy editing, OBM | blah blah blah 16:07, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Please take greater care when writing articles

For example, this edit to 2008 Pacific hurricane season adds two sentence fragments and a factual inaccuracy. Your next edit was shorter, but equally destructive. Please take more care in editing, or stop editing entirely. The amount of work we have to do cleaning up after you is much greater than your contributions. Plasticup T/C 15:00, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Please fix Hurricane Norbert (2008)

You have created Hurricane Norbert (2008) against the advice of... everyone. If you don't want to see it redirected back to the season article you will need to fix it. Expand the Impact. Create a Preparations section. Write a lead section. Spell check the entire article. Write in complete sentences. Double the length of the Meteorological history. Plasticup T/C 23:52, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

  • I proposed the article for deletion; it doesn't seem that the article is improving any, and it would seem it doesn't meet the article criteria, according to WP:WPTC anyways. Chukonu xbow (talk) 01:50, 8 October 2008 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of Hurricane Norbert (2008)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Hurricane Norbert (2008), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Chukonu xbow (talk) 01:54, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Why did you recreate Hurricane Boris (2008)?

I thought that we all agreed non-notable fish spinners would not be given little articles, and then you created Hurricane Boris (2008). Why? Plasticup T/C 15:38, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Spelling

Since it does not appear wikipedia has a spell check feature, it would be a good idea to copy the prose you have typed into a word processing program, such as Word or Word Perfect, and spell check it before finalizing any of your edits. People would be more receptive to your edits if you performed this extra step. Thegreatdr (talk) 01:29, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

(Quick-adding category "Hurricanes in Mexico" (using HotCat)

What is the purpose of adding a category, removing it, and then adding it back? Please don't do that; it uses resources unnecessarily, confuses people watching the article, and clogs up the article history. If you want to play with WP:HOTCAT, use the WP:SANDBOX. Thanks. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 03:33, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I saw the typo:( after adding this. But you should still make sure you spell things correctly. It is still better to do things right the first time. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 03:42, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Also, if a category name is spelled wrong, simply section editing the last section of an article will allow category name typos to be corrected without having to remove the incorrectly spelled name in one edit, and then adding the correct spelling in a subsequent edit.

Warning

Please refrain from undoing other people's edits repeatedly, as you are doing at Talk:Tropical Storm Dora (2005). If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. Rather than reverting, discuss disputed changes on the talk page. The revision you want is not going to be implemented by edit warring. Thank you. Plasticup T/C 03:39, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

While on the topic of Dora, do not remove cleanup tags without a justified reason to do so. In this particular case, much of the article is a copy and paste of the TCR, which, while not a copyright violation, prompts the need for cleanup. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 23:13, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Because the damage was from Ike, not Lowell. To say otherwise is rather factually incorrect. Indeed, the remnants of Lowell were absorbed into the remnants of Ike, but one sentence discussing such in Tropical Storm Lowell (2008) is more than sufficient.
Regarding Dora, it's not a little thing. Copying and pasting much of the article from another source is quite not encyclopedic. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 23:24, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
All of which only briefly mention events which they partially contributed to. I want you to go through the references associated with the Damage section of Lowell, and remove the ones which don't mention Lowell at all. Cheers, –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 23:34, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Max and Otis

I've reviewed Otis officially. Max at least has a better quality of writing, but the same issues apply. I've had articles failed which were more complete Max and Otis. They don't have the required sections needed for GA tropical cyclones, which are outlined on the project main page. Consult the manual of style for what to include in a lead section. See MoS for wikilinks. A dictionary would be helpful for Otis. You have until October 25 before I rule finally on Otis, unless someone else thinks they can quick fail it in the meantime (I don't think they can, based upon wikipedia guidelines.) I'm not optimistic on GA passage for either article, unless you're willing to put in the 10-20 hours of work it will likely require to improve each article. Thegreatdr (talk) 15:10, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Three more days. There has been little evidence of improvements to this article so far, so its future as a GA is not looking bright. Thegreatdr (talk) 17:39, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
For Max, the other reviewer might give you some slack since others of us have been helping that article out and it has been improving/expanding, even during your break. For Otis, however, I won't. This is because you've been focusing on other endeavors during its review process (even during your forced wikibreak) and have shown no effort so far in improving the article, even within your user space. This article requires so much work, stated within its review, that two more days is unlikely to make a difference anyhow. You have two days left. If it is failed, you can always resubmit it. People are reviewing articles much more timely than they used to, so you will only have to wait days instead of weeks for another review, if it is failed.

Hernan

Sorry, Yellow Evan, but I don't think that Hurricane Hernan (2008) is quite ready for being a FAC. But I did read over the article, and judging by what I've read, it is possibly the best article so far in the 2008 Pacific hurricane season series. You have another hit.

Virginal

Hurricane Virgil
hurricane
Formed October 1, 1992
Dissipated October 5, 1992

Hurricane Virgil was a late season hurricane of the 1992 Pacific hurricane season that struck southwestern Mexico in October 1992. The twentith named storm and seventh major hurricane of the 1992 season, Virgil's winds reached category 4 intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale before making landfall in Western Mexico (between the towns of Lazaro Cardenas and Manzanillo) as a category 3 storm.

One person was declared missing and three people were injured as a result of Virgil and the storm damaged or destroyed over 1500 houses.

Storm history

On September 13, a tropical wave exited the western coast of Africa and crossed the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea without development. On September 25, the system crossed Panama and moved into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Convection began to develop in the tropical wave but the system stayed disorganized until September 30.[1]

Hazel

Hazel was a devastating Mexico cyclone.

Meteorological history

File:Hazel1965 track.png
Map plotting the track and intensity of the storm, according to the Saffir–Simpson scale

Impact

At least six persons where dead and thousands homeless today from the northwest Mexican states of Sinaloa and Nayarit.

Officials estimated the damage at $10 million from the sixhour battering by cyclone Hazel. The shrimp fleet, Mazatlan's economic base, suffered major damage, officials said. The cyclone packed winds of up to 68 miles an hour. The known dead in Mazatlan were two fishermen who tried to ride out the storm aboard their boat and a boy electrocuted by a fallen power line. Three persons were reported killed by a broken power line in a rural area of Nayarit.

Authorities feared the toll would rise as reports come in from areas isolated by flood waters. About 10,000 persons fled Mazatlan's low - lying slums, the hardest hit area of the city. Thousands of flimsy shacks of wood, tin and cardboard were washed away or covered by muddy waters as deep as 6 feet. Highways and bridges along the winding coast were washed out by floods. Shipbuilder Tomas de Rueda Jr. said weather information from stations in Mexico and San Francisco had put the storm well out to sea on a course away from Mazatlan. "We were unprepared to face the nightmare which hit us," he said. "We were taken completely unaware." About 55,000 acres of cotton, corn and sorghum were reported lost in the rich agricultural area of southern Sinaloa. Meanwhile, tropical s t o rm Debbie, with winds up to 35 miles an hour, threatened the opposite side of the country. Ships along the Gulf of Mexico were told to head for shelter.

At least six Tucsonians were reported dead to have been in the Mazatlan area when tropical storm Hazel struck the Mexican community. Because of a breakdown in communication facilities, there has been no word from the Tucsonians, relatives reported.

More than 50 fishing boats sunk or dam- i aged by tropical storm Hazel which battered the Pacific Coast port of Mazatlan, Mexico, for six hours with winds up to 68 miles an hour.

Retirement

Due to to damage, Hazel was retired.

You're not the boss

Excuse me, I didn't know you suddenly took control over what I can and can't do. For one, I can create any article I feel like making, second you are not in a position to be remotely close to telling people to work on a certain topic, third, learn how to write using proper spelling and grammar, and fourth listen to what people say when they give input on your edits, because it's really annoying to many of us that you're ignoring our comments and doing exactly what we asked you not to do. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 04:12, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Last warning

I see that you removed my message last night; that doesn't make the warning non-existent. It shows me that you read the comment, and that you know how to edit while adhering to policy. This edit reverted the merging of an article you created, which was done so as the result of a talk page discussion. This article, along with the dozens of others you have created, violate many, many Wikipedia policies, and/or WPTC standards. You as an editor have to discuss the matter on the talk page before ignoring consensus, and refusing the listen to other editors' guidance. If you continue in this destructive manner of editing, you will be blocked. Cheers, –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 13:54, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Warning re.

I'm quite sure that it doesn't matter. Most of my work is done in one edit anyways, Also, I couldn't move the sandbox because the article had been previously made, for Elida, you made an article which was merged, and douglas was a redirect page. I don't think you should be giving me warnings though, pay more attention to your actions and avoid being banned yourself. I can take care of myself and if I'm doing anything wrong an admin like Juliancolton will notify me of such actions. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 14:11, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Storm of the month

2008 Yemen floodsCyclone X

Deep Depression ARB 02 caused the 2008 Yemen floods. On October 19 the IMD noted that an area of low pressure which located to the south east of Salalah, Oman had intensifed in to a tropical depression and was assigned the number ARB 02. On October 21 IMD updated the system to a Deep Depression while it lay 700 km south of Salalah, Oman near the east coast of Somalia. It lost its strength while crossing the Gulf of Aden due to entry of dry air and land interaction as it passed close to the northeastern coast of Somalia. It later was downgraded to a Depression, named TC 03B by the JTWC. On October 24 it made landfall on the south-eastern coast of Yemen, leaving at least 26 civilians and six soldiers dead while trapping hundreds of people due to flooding and torrential rainfalls. The latest figure of casualties is of 184 persons dead and 100 others missing, mostly from the region of Hadhramawt, where the storm made landfall. A total of 733 houses were destroyed in the governorates of Hadhramaut and Al Mahrah, while 22,000 people were displaced. The Yemeni Government declared the two aforementioned governorates as disaster zones.

Other tropical cyclone activity

  • Atlantic Ocean– In the Atlantic, four tropical cyclones formed this October. Tropical Storm Marco formed in the Bay of Campeche on October 6. It made landfall on October 8 and is one of the smallest Atlantic tropical cyclones since 1988. Tropical Storm Nana formed October 12 in the middle of the open Atlantic. It had no impact anywhere and dissipated October 14. Hurricane Omar formed October 13 and dissipated October 18. Eventually peaking as a Category 4 hurricane, Omar passed through the Lesser Antilles twice, including once near peak intensity. Fortunately, it caused only one indirect death. Tropical Depression Sixteen formed on October 16 and dissipated two days later after making landfall. It killed 16 to 20 people in Central America.

Project News
A discussion concerning sandboxes for next year's articles has begun. Please consider working on sandboxes so they will be ready to publish. As tropical cyclones can form at any time in the western Pacific and northern Indian Oceans, these two season's should be made ready for cyclones by December. Ideally, due to the possibility of pre-season storms, the eastern Pacific and Atlantic seasons should also be ready by then, but they should at least be ready by the northern-Hemisphere antipeak in late February and early March. Seasons for the years 2010 to 2015 should be given the name "Post-2009 {ocean name} {cyclone term} seasons", as in "Post 2009 Atlantic hurricane seasons".

A category for tropical cyclone articles of very-low importance has been introduced. Although discussion is still ongoing, a rating of very-low-importance will generally be given to weak cyclones that do not have impact or set any sort of record.

Editorial
This month, our usual editor, Hurricanehink, has been on a semi-wikibreak until further notice. I am filling in as editor and distributor on an interim basis. The newsletter will continue as normal during that time. Thank you. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 00:49, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Re: Comment

Heya. First, is that Wikibreak you are taking for real, as in you won't edit at all until that break is over? Good luck pulling that off. Second, I was really hoping that the next time you left a post on my talk page, it would not contain a single typo. I have no idea what you said on my page. Please, please, please take as much time as possible to ensure that every edit you make does not contain a single typo. Third, I have been checking around every once in a while, and from what I've seen you still haven't changed that much, as in you're still a negative force within the project. Please, do not act like you know what you are doing if you do not. Edit like this, in which you only say "Fix" in the edit summary when in reality you do much more, are negative edits to the project, as nobody knows what you are doing. I found it quite rude when you "Welcomed" Juliancolton, and I also found it rude when you wrote a warning to Cyclonebiskit, when he did nothing wrong. You need to read up on policy before you make rash edits. Also, I was a little surprised when I read this edit, in which you said you wouldn't be back until December 12, but you're still editing normally. I'll see you around. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 04:49, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Alright, I sort of understand what you said. However, you are still making problematic edits, despite your supposed break. I'll say it plainly - if you don't know what you're doing or you don't know what you're talking about, don't do anything without asking. You changed the statistics page by thinking Lowell was still included. First of all, that is a bad thing to assume, since it's easy enough to check that the two EPAC stub articles are Boris 08 and Odile 08. Second, you changing that one stat would wreck the rest of the stats, which took me about an hour to do last night. Please be more considerate of other people's work. Next, you keep adding non-notable storms to the vital articles for the WPTC list, this time adding Kenneth 05 and Daniel 06. I'll say it plainly right now. Do not change the importance of something unless there is a consensus to do so. I'll extend that to your edits on Wikipedia in general. Please do not change anything on Wikipedia unless you know what you're doing.

I know you are young. Perhaps Wikipedia isn't the best place for such a young person. If you choose to stay, then you really need to learn Wikipedia's rules and policies. If you don't do that, and you keep up your current actions, you'll probably eventually be blocked. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 14:47, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

I don't really care about the EPAC articles. What I'm telling you is that your edits are problematic, and that extends to making new, poorly written articles. I'll repeat what I said before. Do not change the importance of something unless there is a consensus to do so. I'll extend that to your edits on Wikipedia in general. Please do not change anything on Wikipedia unless you know what you're doing. I know you are young. Perhaps Wikipedia isn't the best place for such a young person. If you choose to stay, then you really need to learn Wikipedia's rules and policies. If you don't do that, and you keep up your current actions, you'll probably eventually be blocked. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:02, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
I very much doubt you know what you are doing. You had the signature problem. You were blocked while I was away. You still don't know how to spell. You don't know anything about page-protection, despite you making several requests on the protection page. Despite overwhelming consensus you kept re-adding unnecessary information to the page on Lowell. You don't know how to properly use edit summaries; labeling this edit as a "fix" is very disruptive, as there's no way Hurricane John in 2006 was top class. I'll say it again, please don't act like you know what you're doing. Instead, you should ask for help when you don't know what you're doing. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:19, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Sure. What do you need help with? ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:31, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Edit review

OK, I'll start right now. Your last edit summary was "answer". A good edit summary should be more than one word, particularly on articles and articles' talk pages. For user talk pages, one word summaries are usually alright, but it's not a good habit to get into. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:43, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

This edit summary, saying merely "fix image" is not good. You should avoid saying "fix" in your edit summary. Instead, say what you did. For that edit summary, you should've said something like "changing image alignment", or something like that. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:47, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

The Hernan edit seemed to be a relatively good edit. Cyclonebiskit continued what you started by continuing the altering of the images. Your latest image might not have been so good, as you changed the placement for no reason. And, I just checked, Cyclonebiskit reverted your edit. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:54, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Careful, it looks like you might be getting into an edit war. When that happens, rather than continuing to revert, you need to talk with the other party and find a solution. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:55, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Alright, you're still making the same problems. First, be sure that in every edit that you spell every word correctly. If you can't get past that, then you'll never make it anywhere on Wikipedia. Second, you need to explain your edits better. I saw two edit summaries in which you merely said "answer". That is a problem, especially if your actual edit doesn't make much sense in context. Take your edit you made on Fay's talk page. You said "1.80 billion sounds more reasanadle", and wrote an edit summary of just "answer". Nobody asked a question, which leaves me very confused what you were talking about. Also, I found your edit to the 2008 Pacific hurricane season article confusing, when you added a ton more information on Hernan. You should provide more explanation for what you are doing. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 22:09, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

You need to stop saying "answer" in your edit summary. You like you were spamming the talk page for 2008 PHS, with all of the records nonsense. I would consider them bad edits. They had little point from what I read. If you did have a point, you should've made them much clearer. Also, your comment on Hernan 08's FAC was pointless. Nobody on the page cared whether or not it was a fishspinner (and most didn't even know what that was). I think that is a great lesson - don't make a comment on a talk page if no one will care about it.

Since the weekend is over, I will be going back to my Wikibreak, and I'll likely not be returning until later this month. If you have any questions, you should ask some of the project regulars, but please don't ignore the advice I gave you. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 05:42, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Evan, please think over what you are going to do to an article before you do it. The forecast track serves no importance to the article, hence why it's been removed. The other images are in the correct positions and don't need to be moved. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 17:23, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

May I please help? --Dylan620 (Homeyadda yadda yaddaOoooohh!) 23:40, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Check your sandbox; you're going to like the changes I've made (which can truly be found here). I hope you don't mind, but I removed the 1992 Pacific hurricane season category from the sandbox; wait until the sandbox is released into the main article space to add categories.

P.S.: Just like how you quick-added the category via HotCat, I quick-removed it using the same tool.

Evan, Tropical Storm Polo was never forecast to become a hurricane, the strongest it was forecast to become was 70mph, just short of hurricane status. I'm telling you this here because I don't want to start another edit war. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 15:46, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

2006 PHS

Now that I'm back, I'll be finishing 2006 PHS in the next few days, since I have a sandbox that is nearly complete. Also, now that I'm back, I'm curious why you are so adamant you are on a break. It seems like every edit summary you make says "returning to break after this", but you've never actually stopped editing. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 23:27, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm not really sure what you're doing. I have 2006 PHS under control. Also, I suggest that when you make tests like this on the Fabio page, that you undo your changes quickly. I don't really care what the rationale was, but if it was a test that had no point, then such a change should not remain there. And I'll ask again - how come you say you've been on break, when you haven't stopped editing at all? ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 03:09, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Don't worry about the list of article. Once my sandbox is ready, the main article will be moved over to the list of article. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 03:23, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Also, you really shouldn't be copying entire articles into your sandbox. It destroys their edit histories. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 03:25, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
I told you, I have the season under control. You shouldn't have GA nom'd those articles which weren't yours and weren't ready, especially if you're still "on break" right now. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:21, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
I can't make this any clearer. I'm already working on finishing up 2006 PHS for the FT. You don't have to work on it. I plan on working on Ileana and Carlotta as well, meaning you can withdraw their GAN's if you want. Within the next week I should be done. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:36, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry if I'm rude, but I don't need any of your work. Moreover, I can't use any of your work, as your list article is in bad shape. That's why I told you I'd be finishing the project, so you wouldn't have to waste your time. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:57, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Note

Please do not preform tests on articles, as you did with Tropical Storm Fabio (2006). If you would like to test, please use the Sandbox. Thank you. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 03:06, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

2008 Pacific hurricane season note

Evan, since when has the WPTC stated that it is against policies to merge an article? I honestly think you're making that up yourself with no proof that is not of your own doing to back it up. Thus, I am removing the link to the merged Odile article, which should remained merged unless the article has been expanded to a sufficient length to deserve to keep that article. Do not revert the removal of the article. If you have any complaints about this, please consult an admin of such. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 22:03, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Tropical Storm Karina (2008)

Please remove your merge proposal. If an article of yours is merged, you are not to disrupt Wikipedia by proposing a merge of another article. If you continue to edit disruptively, you will be blocked from editing. Thank you. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 22:30, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

This post further evidences your intent to edit disruptively. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 22:33, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Does your proposal to merge Tropical Storm Karina (2008) still stand? If not, please take the steps necessary to remove the notice from the article and its talk page. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 22:38, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Stop being disruptive. You've been warned several times before of what not to do, yet you ignore it. For example, you keep adding the impact from Ike to information on Lowell.

Article creation

Yellow Evan,

Many editors have repeatedly tried to advise you about your actions and contributions, which, with all due respect, are somewhat disruptive. The biggest issue is what I assume to be lack of inclination to learn how to write articles well, with correct grammar, and with sufficient information, referencing. In short, the articles you create fail to meet project and Wikipedia standards, and we've tried to explain this to you numerous times. However, you continue to write such articles without putting any effort into improving, or even reading Wikipedia's content policies and guidelines.

This is especially true with articles on storms of the 2005 Pacific hurricane season. User:Cyclonebiskit is trying to improve that series of articles. Unfortunately, you have created rather poor articles, which cause more work for Cyclonebiskit, and more stress on the WPTC as a whole. I'm not by any means trying to discourage you from contributing; it's obvious that you have good intent. But until you learn how to write articles that conform to Wikipedia's standards, I'm going to have to ask you once again to stop creating articles for a while. Further action may be necessary if you continue do ignore the advise that editors provide. Thank you. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 02:13, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

You haven't been taking a break, though. Nearly every edit summary contains the term "break begins now", even though you have yet to actually take a break from editing. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 02:24, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Why? re.

Read over the FAC, don't post in it, just read. But the basic summary of it is that the article is to excessively detailed, which is a problem since for an article to be an FA one of the qualifications is that it is of sufficient length and detail, but not excessive detail. I have to rewrite the article for it to pass, but it's best to not worry about it and leave it as is for now. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 23:18, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Re: Quik question

Yes. I'll try to get around to expanding. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 04:38, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Re: Are you ready?

Ok, but do you mind if we use a different format that what's already there? –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 16:25, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't understand that question. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 16:33, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, it would be easier for me (and more productive for you) if that page was formatted similar to User:Dylan620/School. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 16:37, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
