Thread Titles - ALL POSTERS PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU START A NEW THREAD!!

#1 Postby AJC3 » Wed Jul 27, 2016 7:12 pm

Gang,

If you start a thread about an area of disturbed weather, then you MUST take on the responsibility of keeping the thread title current and representative with respect to location, intensity, etc.

When I logged on a few minutes ago, there were separate threads about a tropical wave along 27W and a wave with a low along 13N 28W. (yikes)

Normally, the mods and admins try to refrain from editing other posters' threads, however in cases such as this, to avoid confusion, we have no choice.

Thanks in advance....

The Naval Postgraduate School's Department of Meteorology has started their "pouch tracking" again this season, and often tag various disturbances before they are given INVEST designations/NHC TWO mentions. Would it be a good idea to list their pouch designations in thread titles?

We've done this for several years if I am not mistaken. Go ahead if you haven't started already.

Gang, this is happening again and it's causing confusion! This is targeting those posters who frequently start threads above tropical waves, especially near the coast of Africa, and then don't update the titles for days, while the wave has moved westward 10-20 degrees or more, in some cases.

If you start a thread about an area of disturbed weather, you MUST take on the responsibility of keeping the thread title current and representative with respect to location, intensity, etc.

I've had to edit at least 3 threads over the past week to keep the titles current/consistent with the location of these wave axes!. In some cases, I've had to lock the threads and create new ones.
