The 2012 Pacific hurricane season featured above-average activity, but minimal impact and fatalities (fortunately). I have significantly improved the status of the article and feel that it now meets the criteria to be recognized as a featured list. TropicalAnalystwx13(talk) 02:42, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Comments from Dudley Miles
Comments by Dudley Miles A good list. I have a few minor points.
The second sentence is a bit long. I would suggest ending it at "both basins" and then "These dates conventionally".
Is there a reason that the first three tropical depressions are designated by a number and the rest by number and -E?
Oops. In the Atlantic, depressions just get a number designation, while in the East Pacific, they get a number and "-E" to denote the basin. It's a mistake that I've corrected. TropicalAnalystwx13(talk) 22:21, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
You mention seventeen tropical depressions, but with ten and thirteen you do not mention them but go straight to the storm. Is there a reason for this?
No, that should say tropical cyclones instead of tropical depressions. TropicalAnalystwx13(talk) 22:21, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks but now I am even more confused. If I understand correctly, cyclone is a generic term covering various strengths such as tropical storm and hurricane, so how can a cyclone strengthen to become a tropical storm? Dudley Miles (talk) 22:49, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
That's an interesting point that hasn't been brought up in any of my FLCs before. For this season in particular, the mention of 17 depressions isn't really necessary so I've removed it. TropicalAnalystwx13(talk) 21:32, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
I have only one concern, which is that of referencing: in the lede, damage from Bud and Carlotta is mentioned, yet neither is referenced. Other than that, I'm satisfied with the article. Nice one as usual, TAWX. Cloudchased (talk) 18:46, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Support - seems comparable to other featured timelines. Only one point of concern- "East Pacific—defined as the region east of 140°W—and on June 1 in the central Pacific—defined as the region east of 140°W to the International Date Line" - so the central Pacific is located entirely inside the East Pacific? Looks good besides that. --PresN 19:35, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
Support (having stumbled here from my FLC discussion page). The list page is most educational and encyclopedic. It is meticulously sourced throughout to appropriate citations. My only minor quibble is the title Notes for that subsection: Notes usually refers to Harvard Citations followed by a References section with the full Citations -- this type of section should be called Footnotes.
