GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Fountain of the Great Lakes/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

I have completed my review of this article, and it passes! Congratulations to the authors and contributors of this article on a job well done. The article seems to be well written, it complies to the manual of style and spelling and grammar are correct. To improve it, I would recommend taking out some of the unnecessary and off topic wikilinks, especially in the first paragraph. It is probably unnecessary to link to "Loop", "community area", "Cook County", "Illinois", "United States", and "sea level" because these do not directly relate to the sculpture and are distracting. It appears factually accurate and verifiable and well cited. The coverage is overall quite good, but it seems that the background section gets a little divergent at points and could be stated more concisely. The article is neutral and stable. The use of an image is very good with an applicable image, appropriate caption, and copyright tagging is correct and appropriate.

Overall, very nice job, just take out the surplus wikilinks. Kaylart (talk) 03:53, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
