2185: Cumulonimbus[edit]

Hi Natg19.
I removed the categories you added.
Science, because I do not think naming of clouds to be science.
But the other one, Weather, I removed because that category does not exist.
But I'm not against creating such a category. But then you should put in the work, finding a list of other comics (and other categories) that would go into this category, and also create the category page with the usual minor details that is in such a page.
See for instance Category:Tornadoes. That would go into a weather category. But should it just be called Weather? Or should it be Weather phenomenon or something else? If you are interested I'm willing to help with the details of the category page, if you are willing to find at least 10 other weather comics, that are not already in a category like Tornadoes or Category:Hurricanes --Kynde (talk) 07:19, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Weather (or meteorology?) could be a usefull category, with the subcategories of e.g. Hurricanes/Tornadoes. Other canidates for comics include obviously 1324: Weather and 2185: Cumulonimbus but also 831: Weather Radar, 1245: 10-Day Forecast, 1434: Where Do Birds Go, 260: The Glass Necklace, 1321: Cold, 1119: Undoing. There should either be a direct connection to Category:Climate change or it should be somehow merged to a category for climate. my 2 cents. --Lupo (talk) 07:56, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
I like the idea of a category called meteorology. Which could include anything with weather with subcategories for storms of any kind... Complicated with climate change category. Weather is not climate change. That is one of the problems with climate change deniers, that they look at the weather not the climate! (PS added a ":" before the category in the climate change link, else it will not be a link but will add this page to the category! ;-) --Kynde (talk) 13:43, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
I would also add 511: Sleet, 748: Worst-Case Scenario, 1026: Compare and Contrast, 1304: Glass Trolling, 1606: Five-Day Forecast, 2026: Heat Index to this meteorology category. I agree that the Hurricanes and Tornadoes page could be subcategories of this category. Natg19 (talk) 17:23, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
I'm unable to create the details of the category, I do not have permissions to create the page. Natg19 (talk) 17:24, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
I think we should make such a category. I will do it if we can find a good name. I think Weather is maybe a bit too weak a name. But maybe Meteorology is too much? --Kynde (talk) 12:47, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
The saurus doesn't give other good ideas on this one. I'd vote for weather, as with meteorology typos will be common, and also it will always be discussed, wether or not the comic tackles the topic scientific enough. --Lupo (talk) 13:04, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
I tend to agree. I will create the Category:Weather then, and add a few. I hope you two will add those you have suggested. --Kynde (talk) 07:11, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
PS Should Climate change be a part of this, or is this precisely not Weather? --Kynde (talk) 07:24, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
I can see Lupo added his comics to the category. I added also those not yet on the list from Natg19. Except the one about worst-case scenarios, that one I added to the hurricane category. comics belonging to a sub category should only be listed under the other if other particular weather phenomenon is also part of that comic. I have also added a paragraph under both the Weather and Climate change categories, stating that they are not related. Weather is what you see outside right now, Climate is what happens over years. --Kynde (talk) 11:39, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
