To Guide and FTT?
I was wondering what would still be needed to add to this article for Guide status (which would mean we could put it on the Main Page). Also, I've written much of what's in the article basically using some WP articles and information on the sites of FEMA and the New Zealand Civil Defence. It'd be good if someone who actually lives in an earthquake-prone area to have a look at the article. Ryan? User:Nurg? ϒpsilon (talk) 18:18, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
- I made a couple of minor tweaks, but I grew up in the geologically stable Midwest and haven't yet experienced a big West Coast quake, so my knowledge on the subject is fairly limited. Overall the article seems to match the advice I've been given from people who have been through a quake large enough to do significant damage. If I was to suggest updates it might be to add advice to prepare an earthquake preparedness kit if you're staying in an earthquake zone for any length of time, and I would also suggest beefing up the section on the aftermath of an earthquake - CUSEC seems like a reasonable resource. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:24, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
- Thanks anyway and thanks for the links. Over here, earthquakes is just something you see on tv... :) ϒpsilon (talk) 12:10, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
I found some information from Japan, which may be of interest to editors:
- An Earthquake Survival Manual from Tokyo Metropolitan Government. At 86 bilingual pages it is probably far too detailed.
- This page links to a 4 page leaflet for visitors.
- Met agency map of quake is the last week.
- Japan Tourist Office safety tips
- If it is copypasta, I have yet to discover the source of this content. I think a summary of the Richter scale might be useful, but how many people have heard of the Mercalli scale? I hadn't. Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:34, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
- The colourful table on the Mercalli scale is basically copied from w:Mercalli intensity scale with some small changes, the Richter stuff might be based on w:Richter magnitude scale but it is not a copy. I think that it is worth mentioning this scale, but it should get a lot less space than the more common Richter Scale. This New Zealand newspaper article uses both scales.

I have previously created an alternative banner for this article (which was initially created for the parallel article at the Hebrew Wikivoyage, but I decided to suggest we'll use it here at the English Wikivoyage article as well). Which banner do you prefer that we'll use on the top of this article? ויקיג'אנקי (talk) 13:31, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
- The current banner lacks colour. I prefer the new banner. Ground Zero (talk) 18:29, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
- I agree with Ground Zero. I like the more colorful banner better. WhatamIdoing (talk) 19:11, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
- Yeah, the new one is a much better picture. Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:15, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
- Support. It's clearer, more colorful, and I like the human aspect of seeing people looking at how to repair the damage. --Bigpeteb (talk) 18:09, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
