How it works?

In Hurricane Idol, names that have or will be used to name hurricanes are put into a competition based on what the judges and the other users of Hypothetical Hurricanes Wiki decide (since Season 9, however, names that are not use to name hurricanes, such as Tanya, Steenee and Sawo, are being used). Once the competition is complete, the last name that stands out will be crowned the winner of the competition and the most popular hurricane name of the year.

Blocked users will have their names disqualified, but will be able to participate in future seasons if the user is unblocked. Users must compete in one account only. Users who try to participate in Hurricane Idol with alts or sockpuppets will get their names disqualified, or even removed from the season if the user is a judge/co-host/host.
