After several years of absence I have commented on WP:NOR. May it be at least as many years before I comment again.

"of two Arizona state government buildings in Phoenix"[edit]

This is a phrase and it doesn't control the verb.

"one" is the control - so "one is" is correct.

Any phrase that begins with "of" doesn't control the verb.

Cut-and-paste move[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Catholicism and Freemasonry a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you.

I've attached {{histmerge}} to the article for an administrator to perform the merge. Thanks. — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 22:50, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Just FYI, this was something like seven years ago, so I wouldn't worry about it. MSJapan (talk) 23:31, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
I won't ... But just so you know, when I did that move, I copied the entire talk page over with it. It's all in the archives of the current article. Blueboar (talk) 02:22, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
