In summer 2015, Dr. Blofeld asked me if I fancied working on Piccadilly, which ended up with us getting it to good article status. We then had a go at Park Lane, at which point I thought, "wouldn't it be a good idea to get all the places on the Monopoly board up to GA?" We had a few initial problems; Vine Street had narrowly survived AfD, Pentonville Road hadn't even been written, and I wasn't sure if I'd have enough source material for tackling the better-known landmarks such as King's Cross station and Trafalgar Square. Still, several people chipped in to help and 21 months later it's all done, so here is a good topic for you, hopefully in name and in spirit. Enjoy! (Homage must be paid to Tim Moore for the basic concept, whose book "Do Not Pass Go" was mined extensively for all articles here. --Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 19:22, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

One may, and my response is none of those are actually locations in London per se (and indeed Community Chest has never been a London "thing" full stop). The original draft of the project did have things like Metropolitan Police Service, London Electricity Board, Metropolitan Water Board (London) (and M25 Motorway for "free parking"), and I mulled over whether to do the utilities in particular, but ultimately concluded they were a bit too arbitrary a choice for what is a list of visitable streets and properties. The main list article does specifically make a point of not including these terms. Horses for courses, anyway. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:35, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
I figured you might say the topic is London locations, not squares on the London Monopoly board. I suppose it becomes a question of defining the topic appropriately. As you say, horses for courses. In any event, a significant achievement, so well done.

1896 Atlantic hurricane season

3 articles
Good article 1896 Atlantic hurricane season
1896 Atlantic hurricane season summary map.png
Featured article 1896 Cedar Keys hurricane
Good article 1896 East Coast hurricane

For consideration to become a good topic: a high-quality, complete, and relatively straightforward set of articles concerning the Atlantic hurricane season of 1896. The two well-documented storms of the season have standalone articles, while the rest are discussed within the season article. Note that although Tropical Storm Seven – which doesn't have its own article – was highly destructive, it struck an impoverished and remote island, and information about it is consequently scarce. Thanks, – Juliancolton | Talk 00:07, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Support Enough detailed articles for the season.—CycloneIsaac (Talk) 04:22, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - If 5 can have an article, then 2 should have one too. Nergaal (talk) 10:21, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Nergaal: All of the notable info available for Hurricane Two is in the season article. Whilst I would love to have written standalone articles for each and every storm in the season, the sparse meteorological records of the 19th century don't allow us that luxury. I think you'll agree that splitting two paragraphs off into its own page would be pointless, especially since the season article is acceptably short as it is. It would be nice to do a little research or consult involved editors before opposing. – Juliancolton | Talk 14:11, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • I am sure info from back then is sparse, but same way you found info for 5 you should be able to get info for 2 also. Nergaal (talk) 10:12, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
  • I just told you that information doesn't exist. In the US, Hurricane Two had a much lighter impact in a much smaller area than Five, and only a few precious nuggets of info are available from Puerto Rico. I consulted my fairly comprehensive library of weather books, along with three newspaper archives and all the other sources I've compiled from 10 years of writing tropical cyclone articles, and could not find anywhere near enough on the storm to support its own page. It would be a permanent stub. I think you'll find that you're objecting to the balance of historical records and not to Wikipedia's coverage of this topic. – Juliancolton | Talk 15:12, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
