edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Tropical cyclones:

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.

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)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/July 15, 2015[edit]

I'm trying to find a way to expand this TFA column. I notice that Brenda was the last cyclone to hit land before Donna, which killed at least 364 and did almost a billion in damage (and that's in 1960 dollars). Is there any research to indicate that the public is less prepared for disastrous storms after a long period of less severe storms? Perhaps I can find a way to work that angle into the Brenda column. - Dank (push to talk) 16:55, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Okay, it's coming up tomorrow ... I just added "Brenda was the last tropical cyclone to hit the mainland U.S. before the devastating Hurricane Donna, which killed at least 364 and did close to a billion dollars in damage (in 1960 dollars)." I think the case can be made that Brenda was relevant, but I'll have to leave the relevance to the readers' imaginations for now. - Dank (push to talk) 15:57, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
Two more questions, and there's been some discussion about this so a response would be helpful. 1. As you can see, I left the link off "tropical cyclone" above. In general, there have always been fewer links at TFA than in articles, but I really don't feel strongly one way or the other about this. Would you guys prefer that I always link the first occurrence of "tropical cyclone"? 2. Does the language in the sentence I quote above sound "off" to anyone? - Dank (push to talk) 22:30, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

A-Class article assessment discussion[edit]

Hi, I wanted to make this wikiproject actively using A class article assessment aware of the discussion. I am aware of the no-consensus discussion from March. I am unsure if A-class is useful for Wikipedia or is just more busy work which is partly why I asked the question. -- A Certain White Cat chi? 18:59, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

I'll respond at the link you give. - Dank (push to talk) 19:28, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
