I am nominating this topic for featured status because it meets all of the criteria. There are thirteen articles in this topic. Of them, four are of featured quality (one list and a the remainder articles). 4/13 is 0.3077 (rounded to four decimal places), which means that slightly more than 30% of the articles in this topic are of featured quality. They are linked together through {{Template:Category 5 Pacific hurricanes}}, as well as a common category. This is a self-nomination, as I have worked on some of the articles/list in this topic.

  • Support due to good looking topic plus it fulfills the 25% percentage. Note, I'm supporting it as unbiased and not due to my imput (I wrote the article on Elida). Hurricane Angel Saki (talk) 07:09, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Support and as an additional comment, the overlapping articles with Wikipedia:Featured topics/Retired Pacific hurricanes are... Hurricane Ioke and Hurricane Kenna. This seems perfectly acceptable to me - rst20xx (talk) 13:16, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment The more I think about it...why is Typhoon Paka not included? I know it reached Category 5 in the west Pacific, but it formed in the central Pacific. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 13:23, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
    • The reason Paka is not included is because it was not a Category 5 Pacific hurricane; it was a Category 5 (Pacific) typhoon. The fact that it reached Category 5 intensity in the west Pacific is irrelevant because it was never that intensity in the east Pacific. The part of the lead starting with "Identical phenomena...." makes it clear what the scope of the list, and by implication, the topic, is.

      • Additionally, Paka is not included in the template that links all of the articles, for reasons Miss Madeline mentioned above. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:35, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Support Comment, all issues resolved. Dabomb87 (talk) 23:38, 17 September 2008 (UTC) The lead article, List of Category 5 Pacific hurricanes needs a fair amount of cleanup (refs need to be formatted correctly, lead fleshed out, general copyedit etc.). I don't think it will affect the promotion of this topic, but this should be addressed. Dabomb87 (talk) 01:33, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

I have added and reformatted references. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 03:36, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
I have added other issues on the article talk page. Dabomb87 (talk) 03:58, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
I have resolved those comments. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 22:15, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
I put the rest of the comments on the talk page. Dabomb87 (talk) 04:01, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
