  • The article has a line "The America Capitol Hill is stated to be the inspiration for this edifice which has the most impressive dome which weighs 30000 tons.". Does "America Capitol Hill" mean United States Capitol? And which dome weighs 30000 tons? The subject's or that of US Capitol? If its subject's i would propose that as a hook because i suppose that every building of such stature is lit, not just on national holidays but everyday. Or even the barber store is a funny and interesting hook. I wouldn't have imagined there would be barber shops in such a government building. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 11:44, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I was thinking of using the barber store thing for the hook when I added that bit in. As such...
ALT1: ... that the Congressional Palace of Argentina (pictured) once had a barber store at the basement?

The "30000" thing was an erroneous addition of an extra 0. Makes a lot of difference, though. Grammar wise, it would not refer to the hill, but the subject, conventionally. Also removed peacock term "impressive". YesY Fixed! ☯ Bonkers The Clown \(^_^)/ Nonsensical Babble ☯ 12:01, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg Sounds good. But is it refering to United States Capitol? You can wikilink it. Also, there is this line which i am not able to understand. "The sculpture is a typical depiction of Roman generals making an entry of declaration of entry of Victory but in this case it is driven by the symbolic Liberty holding the reins of the horses." Should the underlined part be removed?
And speaking of peacock, this line sounds very poetic. "The National Palace or the Congress building is situated in the heart of Buenos Aires facing the Plaza de Mayo around which most major historical monuments of the 18th century colonial rule have created an old world charm." Rest article is good. QPQ is still remaining. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 12:07, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that. QPQ now done. No, instead "an entry" should be removed. Peacock-ish terms tweaked. Done. ☯ Bonkers The Clown \(^_^)/ Nonsensical Babble ☯ 12:37, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg ALT1 is good to go. Image is also good. In fact i would request admins to try and promote this with image as it was a finalist at WikiLoves Monuments 2012. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 15:04, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
