Re:Your userpage

It isn't exactly vandalism, but it isn't something I want on my userpage, so I reverted it. Whoever it was, I must know him in real life because he used my actual name. Thanks for noticing it! Reywas92TalkSign Here 23:09, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Not that it really matters, but as it was his only edit, it was probably someone I know at school, not a wikipedian, but I won't be able to find that out until next week when school gets back. Reywas92TalkSign Here 01:03, 3 January 2007 (UTC)


Hello AstroHurricane001. Could you remove your 'New Messages' notifier. For some reason, it directs back to my page. GoodDay 23:54, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Hope you don't think I'm grouchy. GoodDay 20:44, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
I also sent out a request, to Reywas92. Just curious, did the 'joke' direct only to my page? GoodDay 18:14, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
Oh, then in that case by all means restore the joke bar. I thought it directed 'only' to my page. Thought I was a random joke victim. GoodDay 18:21, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
I clicked on it and it directed to my talkpage too. I'm not a big fan of these particular jokes (it's funny maybe the first five times you fall for it but not after that), but it wasn't targeted at you, GoodDay, or anyone else in particular. Newyorkbrad 18:23, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Tropical cyclones WikiProject Newsletter #8

Number 8, January 7, 2007

The Hurricane Herald

This is the monthly newsletter of WikiProject Tropical Cyclones. The Hurricane Herald aims to give a summary, both of the activities of the WikiProject and global tropical cyclone activity. If you wish to change how you receive this newsletter, or no longer wish to receive it, please add your username to the appropriate section on the mailing list. The WikiProject has its own IRC channel.

Tropical cyclone activity

  • Three tropical cyclones existed in the West Pacific during December. Typhoon Durian (Reming) was the deadliest and strongest of the three, killing over 800 people, in the Philippines and Vietnam and peaking at Category 4 strength. Typhoon Utor lasted formed on December 7 and lasted for 7 days, passing over the Philippines and causing severe floods in Malaysia. The final storm of the year, Tropical Storm Trami, lasted for three days and did not affect land.
  • The Southern Hemisphere saw a number of storms develop during December. The most significant was Cyclone Bondo, which hit Madagascar on December 23. Cyclone Anita dissipated early in the month, having formed in November and Cyclone Clovis developed on December 30 before reaching its peak in January. All of these storms were in the Southwest Indian Ocean, the only other cyclone was Cyclone Isobel that formed on December 31 to the north of Western Australia.

The Portal   Portal:Tropical cyclones is designed as the entry point to the WikiProject's work and is recognised as a Featured Portal. The structure emulates that of Wikipedia's Main page and needs updating in a similar manner. The following are the key sections that need editorial attention:

  • Selected article: This is one of the articles of the project, rotated on a weekly basis. These are selected from the better-quality articles and discussed at Portal talk:Tropical cyclones/Selected article.
  • Selected picture: This is chosen from the pictures used in the articles and is rotated monthly. It is selected in a similar manner to the article on Portal talk:Tropical cyclones/Selected picture.
  • Did you know: This is rotated as new articles are created and contains an interesting fact from a few of the new articles.
  • Active tropical cyclones: The currently active tropical cyclones are listed here, and are linked to appropriately.
  • Tropical cyclone news: Recent events in Tropical cyclone activity, such as formation, landfalls and dissipation of storms.
  • Anniversaries: This significant anniversaries for each day in the last week. Unlike the others it refreshes automatically, but should be updated if a new significant event occurs.
  • Things you can do: Unlike the other sections which are reader orientated, this is aimed at editors to give suggestions of articles to work on.

Please keep all of these sections up-to-date and refresh them as new tropical cyclones develop and articles are created. Also please keep the suggestions to editors current and fresh.

I told adminstrators about adding false information repeatedly to SpongeBob SquarePants (character). If a vandal constantly vandalizes an article with you warning him, you may considers telling adminstrators about it at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. By the way, great motto! Happy editing! S.D. ¿п? § 01:29, 17 January 2007 (UTC)


You can create lots of mottos, just as long as you roughly follow the guidelines on the proposals page. Simply south 22:46, 17 January 2007 (UTC)


You know, if you like a suggestion given to a motto that you've nominated, you can change/edit it. Tennis DyNamiTe (sign here) 22:59, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Motto of the Day

Well, I used to contribute, but stopped. Now, I supported all the ones I liked since the last time I voted. Since I don't oppose (unless necessary), it seems as if I'm spamming, but I can assure you it's not. :-) | AndonicO Talk · Sign Here 23:42, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Brown people

AstroHurricane001, Sorry, I guess I missed the closed part. Just getting back into wikipedia again and well I am still making mistakes. I guess I can take some days out and thanks for leaving my entry in. As of late some of the others have also shown kindness and help fix my mistakes as I edit and this has raised my spirits. So, I do appriciate your kindness too. PEACETalkAbout 06:09, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

My "vanity article" on WP:MOTD/N

That was a joke on my part - referring that we want to complete human knowledge, but we don't have to know all about how little Timmy built a sandcastle in his back garden. Sorry if I was a little cryptic. Yuser31415 (Editor review two!) 20:49, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you, sir. I did not know of these wikipedia rules and I am very ashamed of myself. Thank you for guiding and teaching me. I appreciate you non-offensive help. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pepperboi (talkcontribs) 23:22, 24 January 2007 (UTC).


Hey, where can I find the right to see the Comet Mcnaught or whatever it is called in which ever city I am in (which is right now, Sao Paulo)? The weather is lousy right now so I doubt I can see it now, but do you know of a source for where and when to look in a particular city if the weather is right? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Arthurian Legend (talkcontribs)
