Hato, Kai-tak and Tembin Retired

Kai-Tak, Tembin Retired. Hato got Snubbed. 02:00, February 24, 2018 (UTC)
Wasn't suprised that both was retired, but I don't know why Hato wasn't. It was the costliest this season, with over US$6 billion. ArrDFe25 (talk) 04:01, February 24, 2018 (UTC)
Because. Not Retired Hato. 05:18, February 24, 2018 (UTC)
disappointment with Hato.No.1 Mobile (talk) 01:33, February 25, 2018 (UTC)
We don't know if Hato hasn't been retired. The Typhoon Committee runs from February 28 to March 3. And according to someone on S2K, China has apparently requested Hato. There just isn't visible documentation for that request yet like there is for Kai-Tak and Tembin.
Since the typhoon commitee runs from February 28 to March 3, I wouldn't count on Hato being snubbed just yet. We'll have to see. Nutfield001 (talk) 16:34, February 25, 2018 (UTC)
Also, here are the official top 3 replacement name picks for Meranti, Sarika, Haima, and Nock-Ten. Meranti (Jati, Merbau, Nyatoh), Sarika (Rompe, Trases, Kantheay), Haima (Mulan, Fengling, Tianma), Nock-Ten (Hin Nam Nor, Xe Bang Fai, Dok Khoun)
Ok, so Hato does have a chance of retirement. If it's possible, would you post a link here of where you found the fact that China requested Hato. As for the replacement name for the 2016 retired names, I would go with Merbau, Rompe, Mulan, and Dok Khoun. ArrDFe25 (talk) 19:22, February 25, 2018 (UTC)
I personally can't find the official paperwork for it right now but here's where I learned that Hato was requested.
I hope Hato doesn't get snubbed. Even though they were also very devastating, I have doubts about Damrey and Doksuri, since Vietnam has not retired a storm name before. ~ Steve ❄ Talk PageMy Edits📧 02:34, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
HEY HEY! HO HO! HATO HAS GOT TO GO! ur mai waifu desu ノ域囲真 04:22, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
: Wikipedia TC 50th See: During 2018 the Typhoon Committee retired the names Kai-tak and Tembin from the naming lists, while their replacement name will be announced in 2019. 
: Do not go by Wikipedia. Wait until the Typhoon Committee actually meets to jump to conclusions. 12:05, February 26, 2018 (UTC)

  Because!!! NOT RETIRED HATO!!!!!!!!!!! 12:05, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
    And NOT Certainly Retired HATO!!!!!! 12:07, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
Damrey Add Retired! 15:08, February 26, 2018 (UTC)

Hato has officially been requested by China. And please remove Damrey from the list of retired names as there is nothing that verifies it at all. Odds are someone jumped the gun and edited Wikipedia.

Only Hato, Kai-tak, and Tembin were retired, nothing about Damrey, Lan, Nanmadol, or even Doksuri. Not surprised that Damrey didn't go. I am quite disappointed that Lan or Nandmadol weren't retired. TG 2018 22:07, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
The 50th Session of the committee starts in February 28th, and although we know for sure Hato, Kai-tak, and Tembin are gonna be retired, it could be possible that Lan, Nanmadol, and Damrey may also get the boot during the session. We'll have to wait and see. ArrDFe25 (talk) 23:37, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
Unoffical Retired?? 01:03, February 27, 2018 (UTC)
It has only been proposed that the names be retired - the typhoon committee doesnt meet until Wednesday. Say It Jason Rees211.198.26.242 01:06, February 27, 2018 (UTC)
Yep, unofficial at the moment, but Hato, Kai-tak, and Tembin were requested for retirement, as far as we know, but other notable names the past season may also get the boot. Wikipedia states that Kai-tak and Tembin were retired, and they sourced it to a document stating potential replacement names for the retired 2016 names (I hadn't checked the document yet), but both names' retirement hasn't yet been confirmed by WMO (btw I'm ArrDFe25, just changed my signature). Roy25 01:18, February 27, 2018 (UTC)
I don't think Lan and Nandmoadol will be retired because Japan doesn't use names. They use numbers. For instance, Haiyan from 2013 was 1330. Nanmadol from this year was 1703 and Lan was 1721. So there's no reason for them to for retirement. Anyway, Here's the link to the document.

I'm honestly not surprised Damrey, Doksuri, Nanmadol, and Lan weren't requested. In the case of the first two, Vietnam has never requested the retirement of a name before. And with the second pair, most Japanese citizens are more likely to know the typhoons with numbers instead of names.

That's a fact, but then again though with Vietnam, it could request its first name. Canada only requested 2 names, Juan in 2003 and Igor in 2010. But I agree, I doubt Vietnam would request a name. Today marks the start of the 50th Session of the Typhoon Committee. We'll find out the retired names in a few days along with the replacement names for the 2016 retired names. Roy25 17:20, February 28, 2018 (UTC)

Except that Juan and Igor were the only two cases Canada has ever really had. Vietnam has had plenty of cases in the past.
That's true, but there were other ex-hurricanes that impacted Canada. Anyways, going back to the topic, although I do agree that Vietnam won't request Damrey and Doksuri, but even though Vietnam didn't request any names in the past does not necessary mean that they will not request any names in the future, but I'm not saying that they will request Damrey and Doksuri, even I won't be suprised if those two names won't be retired. But one thing for sure, Hato, Kai-tak, and Tembin are out of this list since these names were requested. When does the WMO usually announce retired names? Like in the middle of the session? Or at the end? Roy25 01:24, March 1, 2018 (UTC)
The announcement should be out tomorrow at 6:00am EST.
I'm glad to hear that Hato is gone. It would have pissed me off if it was snubbed. ~ Steve ❄ Talk PageMy Edits📧 05:57, March 1, 2018 (UTC)
NO CUSS WORDS!! Steve!!! -- 21:21, March 1, 2018 (UTC)
Umm...."pissed" isn't a curse word, also, if you want to say something like that, say it in his message/chat page, not in the forums. Plus, I don't think there is a rule saying to not curse. Correct me if I am wrong, since I've only been here for like almost 2 weeks. Anyways, do they announce the replacement names for the 2016 retired names as well as the retired 2017 names? Or do they announce them separately? Roy25 23:09, March 1, 2018 (UTC)
Last day of the Typhoon Session. The WMO may announce the retired names, and maybe along with the replacement names for the 2016 retired names, tomorrow. Roy25 21:16, March 3, 2018 (UTC)

And it's official: Hato, Kai-Tak, and Tembin have been retired. HurricaneAlpha96 (talk) 04:09, March 4, 2018 (UTC) Think Lan and Nanmandol were somewhat snubbed,but i am happy they decided to retire Kai-Tak.No.1 Mobile (talk) 04:29, March 4, 2018 (UTC) As I thought so since Hato, Kai-tak and Tembin were requested. I'm not suprised that Lan and Nanmadol weren't retired. --Roy25 13:03, March 4, 2018 (UTC)
