I am nominating this for featured list because after redoing the page completely, and structuring it similarly to other featured timelines, I believe that it meets the criteria to become a Featured list. Additionally, if this timeline passes, I have the potential to submit 2002 as a featured topic. – TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 02:13, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
As nominator of the first FLC, I am co-noming, especially since TA has another FLC open and there is no clear consenusus to promote quite yet. YEPacificHurricane 02:41, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
Comment - What doesnt make this a content fork of the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season? Jason Rees (talk) 17:16, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
2008? Assuming you mean the 2002 AHS, the timeline is a content fork, but it is an acceptable type of content fork IMO, they are spinoffs from the season article. YEPacificHurricane 17:26, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
Support on criteria 1, 2, 3 a), 5 a), b), and 6. Note - I gave this article an offsite review (in particular on sources, citation quality and prose). I feel it is now close to satisfying all of the FL criteria. One more quibble though:
In the timeline, it shows the season ending on November 1, which is inaccurate. Auree★ 17:28, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
Comment - "No tropical cyclones form during the month of June." and "No tropical cyclones form during the month of November." I think you should find a citation for that, maybe using the MWR. Also, the timeline graphic needs some updating: Dolly, TD 7J, and Josephine were merged.--12george1 (talk) 00:45, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
From what I've been told, there is no need to source stuff that does not happen (correct me if I am wrong). The fact that the articles were merged is not problematic IMO, as they redirect to their season articles. YEPacificHurricane 01:02, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
I fixed the timeline, but the other issue you brought up does not need to be addressed. I checked the MWR and it doesn't mention anything about the months either. – TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 01:41, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Alright. Since I have no other issues, I will Support this article for featured list candidacy.--12george1 (talk) 04:51, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
As it stands, the statement that there are no tropical cyclones in June and November isn't true. Tropical cyclones include typhoons, which form regularly during both months. On the other hand, there may well be no hurricanes during these months, but hurricanes are a subset of "tropical cyclones". Waitak (talk) 22:34, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
"reaching winds of 145 mph " would prefer "with winds reaching 145 mph..."
No 118km/h in the diagram at the top of the Timeline section.
118 km/h is not used in any timelines, nor is it used by the NHC. It is skipped.
UNBELIEVABLE. No way. Unacceptable. So the scale specifically excludes 118 km/h? The Rambling Man (talk) 21:28, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes, as seen in this image here. Tropical Storm ends at 117 km/h and Category 1 hurricane status begins at 119 km/h. – TropicalAnalystwx13 (talk) 22:12, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
Um theres one problem with that source that has to be highlighted, its a rip off our SSHS scale. it should be noted however that this is a new one on me - while its verifable that C1 starts at 119km/h but neither me nor Titoxd have yet found a source that proves where the tropical storm category ends on the SSHS in km/h.Jason Rees (talk) 22:22, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
Quick comment – Not a deal-breaker by any means, but I'm not fond of the external jump in note 3. If a link to that website is deemed necessary there, maybe formatting it as a reference would be an improvement.Giants2008 (Talk) 03:51, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
