  • Symbol question.svg - Length is approved. Interesting article. But article needs heavy editing for grammar correction. Hook fact cited at end of sentence, although reference is possibly a printed material (no online link). No copy violation detected. Other links are ok. - AnakngAraw (talk) 01:31, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Not sure about the grammar in the hook either... I think Macau should be mentioned and "Did you know ... that is expected to open" is not grammatically correct.

  • I changed the statement already. Please check would that be better. --TINHO (talk) 06:16, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Who is opening the capsule in 2049? The government of Macau or the government of Portugal? All the references are in Chinese and the citation for the hook is not an online reference—I presume you have access to and can read the Macau Times reference, if so can you confirm this detail and translate it? Although the date the capsule is to be opened is fairly obvious from the plaque, it's not at all clear which person, government or other body will be opening the time capsule. If it is Portugal, the hook should say "Portugal is..." or "The Portuguese are...", or better "The government of Portugal is expected to...". --Canley (talk) 10:10, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
  • "The government of Portugal is expected to..." is a better answer for this. Thank you for you suggestion to make it more clear =] --TINHO (talk) 15:26, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol voting keep.svg I added the Alt 2 above. But before that I reread the article. It is good to go, in my opinion. You can use Alt2 if you wish. - AnakngAraw (talk) 02:49, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I suggest this one not be promoted until December 19. Gatoclass (talk) 08:57, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I changed "will be" to "is scheduled to be" in ALT2. It's not firm like the sun rising from the east... --PFHLai (talk) 16:27, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
