Checking against the GA criteria[edit]

GA review (see here for what the criteria are, and here for what they are not)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose, no copyvios, spelling and grammar): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
    I would recommend splitting the lead into two paragraphs to make the lead more balanced, per WP:LEAD
    Link "gable" for accessibility
    I would also recommend expanding the lead slightly in order to summarise, but I'll turn a blind eye as I recognise information could be scarce in this subject matter
    "The house's "Lightning Splitter" design harkens to the superstitious belief that the sharp angled gable would deflect bolts of lightning" - is this claim in the source given?
    "The house is located on the southwest corner of Pawtucket Avenue and Willett Avenue (Rhode Island Route 103)" - personally I wouldn't use brackets for the road
    "were not listed in the National Register of Historic Places nomination serve to further enhance its importance" - 'serve'?
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (reference section): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images and other media, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free content have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:

Nice house! This article meets the GA criteria, although I think the lead is a tad short. Promoting Good article JAGUAR  22:44, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
