Page title[edit]

A couple of times in the past, Mesoso2 has moved this article to Districts of France, and made corresponding changes to the text. Each time, I have reverted the text changes and restored the article to its current title. After the last edit, I left a note with Mesoso2 explaining my reasons for undoing his/her changes, and he/she has now left a reply on my talk page. I have started this discussion here to seek feedback from a wider audience. Please add your thoughts below or at WP:FR. Kiwipete 01:20, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Here's the definitionof arrondissement in the American Heritage Dictionary. -Eric (talk) 04:28, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
I think it's much more appropriate to use the French term in this case, it is the proper political delineation. matt91486 15:50, 7 July 2007 (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 necessarily 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 its 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:

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 15:22, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 07:13, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Arrondissements of France/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

Basic outline of the sections it seems an article like this should have (though nowhere near that of Communces of France. I may have an overly low bar for "Start"-class article - feel free to change to stub if you have a good reason. -Formerly the IP-Address (talk) 01:49, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

singular vs plural[edit]

One arrondissement is an administrative division; the arrondissements collectively are a level of administrative divisions. Pick one. —Tamfang (talk) 21:07, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Or: "One arrondissement is an administrative division; the arrondissements collectively constitute a level of administrative division (singular)." Best to seek adult supervision of your English before making a snarky post... Eric talk 02:12, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
I won't say your form is wrong, but would you say "a row of tree"? Whatever; this is beside the point. —Tamfang (talk) 17:57, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
