Clear??[edit source | edit]

Why do you do {{clear}} at the top of this page? I am very confused. 🐔Chicdat ChickenDatabase 11:32, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

There is a clear at the top of the page in order to reduce the infobox breaching into subsquent sections. It will be removed once this article is expanded further.Jason Rees (talk) 02:36, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

I didn't did that Sir, I am new to wikipedia editing so I don't know how it works exactly... If anything I did wrong sorry for that Sir.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seyyon12 (talkcontribs) 13:47, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol possible vote.svg: This is nominated for ITN. Most of them support the blurb. If that gets approved this nomination will fail. I will re-review the article if it doesn't get approved. Thanks. ~~ CAPTAIN MEDUSAtalk 18:15, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

How to add References inside {{reflist}}[edit source | edit]

Can anyone please let me know how to add references inside {{reflist}} block. I have edited the content but when I try to add reflist i had only <ref></ref> tag and when I add in that it gets added in the last line of the article — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seyyon12 (talkcontribs) 12:39, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Assuming that you are putting your references inside the ref tags, then it will automatically be added to the references section. The {{reflist}} template is primarily there to control where the references go. However, I would remind you that we only use reliable sources.Jason Rees (talk) 13:10, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Highest winds and Lowest pressure[edit source | edit]

Where can I find the highest winds and lowest pressure or highest hurricane category in this article? Typhoon Vongfong (2020) includes the information in the infobox.―― Phoenix7777 (talk) 23:51, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

@Phoenix7777: Amphan will include the information within its infobox when the time is right, at the moment, the infobox is showing its current storm intensity.Jason Rees (talk) 00:08, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
I understood the reason why the information is not shown. The template Infobox Hurricane is commented out, although the data is updated. I think it should be shown from the beginning of the cyclone. Is the comment out of the infobox the community concensus?―― Phoenix7777 (talk) 00:36, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Well this is the first time that I have seen it used outside of the Atlantic on a current storm article, however, I believe that we regularly use it on the season articles for systems with full advisories. Personally I feel that it is a double-edged sword as to if we should have the infobox hurricane or infobox hurricane small, right from the start of us making the article up. In a case like Amphan, the infobox serves as an updated one-stop shop for the information provided by the various warning centres, however, at times the information isn't kept up to date as we would like. In this case though, I would presume that we will remove the infobox hurricane current within the next 12 hours or so since the IMD will stop their full advisories once it weakens into a depression.Jason Rees (talk) 01:17, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

The highest pressure should be below 925 because 925 is what it had when it was a category 4 early in the weakening phase. The highest winds should be at least 160 mph one minute sustained. B137 (talk) 00:55, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

@B137: The lowest pressure that we will be using in this article is 925 hPa and is taken from the IMD who are the RSMC of the basin and not the JTWC. However, we will be using the JTWC for the 1-minute sustained winds who assessed a peak of 140 kts (160 mph).Jason Rees (talk) 01:17, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
