I just created this wikiproject, after several months of contemplating doing so. I hope everyone working on hurricane articles will get involved. I went ahead and wrote a bunch of guidelines, basically based on current practices...naturally since this is something I just wrote it doesn't necessarily represent community consensus and needs to be discussed. That discussion should probably go here for now...although eventually we may make these pages a little more structured. For a general TODO list, see the "tasks" item on the project page.

Article up for promotion to A-Class[edit]

List any proposed A-Class assessments here. Discussion will take place on the article talk page. In general, at least two people should endorse promotion.

Question about map images to track data[edit]

Recently one of my track maps was removed from the article of Typhoon Cobra. The reason stated was that tracks created from the historical weather maps were not considered credible. I've been doing this to a few tracks of Pacific typhoons with extended extra-tropical tracks from the Mariner's Log and NOAA OPC. I was wondering if it is considered original research to transcribe data that is in image format into track data. I feel like the essay Using maps and similar sources in Wikipedia articles allows it.

Copyright Violation Detection - EranBot Project[edit]

A new copy-paste detection bot is now in general use on English Wikipedia. Come check it out at the EranBot reporting page. This bot utilizes the Turnitin software (ithenticate), unlike User:CorenSearchBot that relies on a web search API from Yahoo. It checks individual edits rather than just new articles. Please take 15 seconds to visit the EranBot reporting page and check a few of the flagged concerns. Comments welcome regarding potential improvements. These likely copyright violations can be searched by WikiProject categories. Use "control-f" to jump to your area of interest.--Lucas559 (talk) 22:36, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Retired names list could use some source- and data-checking[edit]

Not sure where else to put this, so this seemed like the best place. I pointed out on the talk page of List of retired Atlantic hurricane names that the data on the list doesn't match up with those given in the hurricanes' articles, and the only reply was one alluding to disputes over proper sourcing. Considering that the list is declared as high-importance, I thought it best to make this more visible to the project's members. —烏Γ (kaw), 22:43, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
