info[edit]

I think this page could be worked on to give it more detail. The list of sites without any explanation doesn't add much. We learn little about the city as an actual place with real people. Portcult 07:44, 20 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Possible personal research[edit]

In the article can be read this: "El Fontán Market(17th century-18th century). A simple but rather monumental complex; an 18th century century porticoed square, which housed the vegetable market. It fell victim to speculative manoeuvre." This looks like a personal opinion, that, as such, cannot be present in the Wikipedia. To keep it is necessary to provide external sources.

Can anyone explain what "It fell victim to speculative manoeuvres" actually means?, cos it beats the hell outa me!Chickeninapram (talk) 21:16, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Altitude[edit]

708 m is the altitude of the mountain "El Picayu" close to the city, but not the Above Mean Sea Level which is 232 m. A little correction.

Name[edit]

Ventanielles is one of the Oviedo's Neighborhoods. The real and unique name is Oviedo (spanish) or Uvieu (bable or asturian). Please be rigorous. --Deibiz (talk) 11:44, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Removal of the word "Bable"[edit]

Native speakers of the Asturian language consider the term "Bable" derogatory. The connotation is that the language is jibberish. Although the world Bable is a citable reference and has been used by uninformed parties to refer to the language, due to its offensive nature, it should be removed from this article. In the asturian language, they refer to the language as "Asturianu"... the language should be referred to as "Asturian" in English. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Asturnut (talkcontribs) 11:48, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
