Indus Valley Civilization[edit]

is this considered the world's first urban culture ? פארוק (talk) 23:32, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Types of cities by geographical area[edit]

i want to ask should I also add a section on types of cities around the world by geographical area ? , like article on the types of cities around the world in urban geography. פארוק (talk) 23:47, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

That would be redundant. Lists of cities and Lists of cities by country (just added) are found under the See also section. Hwy43 (talk) 02:45, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
I do not mean the list of cities ! . But a types of cities by urban planning of geographical area. פארוק (talk) 04:59, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Please elaborate on what is meant by "types of cities by urban planning of geographical area". Hwy43 (talk) 06:04, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
in Urban geography There are some types of cities around the world such as:

the Chinese city, the Middle Eastern city, the American City,the Yuruba city in Africa, and so on .......

that what i mean. פארוק (talk) 07:24, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

There are already subsections for China, numerous Middle Eastern countries, the United States, and many other countries in this article. You can try adding content, to the applicable sections, to get a better sense of what you are intending, but the contributions should include references based on reliable sources—something that is all too lacking in this article. Hwy43 (talk) 02:04, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
I've struck some of the above, as the subsections are under the "Distinction between cities and towns" section, not a types of cities by country section.Hwy43 (talk) 04:32, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Pleas look here (Types of cities by geographical area)

this is article that i wrote and after than he was deleted. פארוק (talk) 11:02, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

first line's source[edit]

This may be a bit subtle, considering the modern misuse of encyclopedias, but other, non-encyclopedic sources might be found for this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.247.25.6 (talk) 22:58, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Yes, it is a bit subtle. Can you explain more explicitly what you have in mind? HiLo48 (talk) 23:10, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

History - Ancient Times: Mesopotamia: wrong[edit]

"Mesopotamia can claim the earliest cities, particularly Eridu, Uruk, and Ur." Certainly wrong. The earliest cities being Jericho, Tell Barak, Catal Hüyük e.a. Mesopotamian lowlands were unfit for permanent settlement due to annual inundations which displaced river beds and left vast stinking, rotting lakes for a few months. Only with neolithic technique could the lowlands be settled (Jemdet Nasr, from 5000 BC onwards).

Inconsistency: Global cities[edit]

In the section "Global cities" Istanbul is used as an example of both a global city and a non-global city. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HivMnd (talkcontribs) 11:03, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Sub-Saharan Africa[edit]

The section on ancient cities in Sub-Saharan Africa stated: "The oldest sites documented thus far are from around 500 AD including Awdaghust, Kumbi-Saleh the ancient capital of Ghana, and Maranda a center located on a trade rout between Egypt and Gao." This statement seems incorrect, as it does not account for the many urban developments that existed far before 500 AD. I went ahead and added some information about the third century BC urban center of Jenné-Jeno in modern-day Mali, and hopefully others can add more later. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sx1212 (talkcontribs) 15:50, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Istanbul - a global city or not?[edit]

Under "global cities", Istanbul is listed in the first paragraph as an example of a global city, but on the third paragraph as an example of a historical city but not consider as a "global city".

So, what is it?

24.2.46.25 (talk) 20:11, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

I see what you mean. Contradictory. All examples of what is and what not is have been removed as there are no citations based on reliable sources to back up either set of the claims for all listed. Hwy43 (talk) 21:02, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
