Pedantic Height[edit]

I just been to the tower, and on the top most floor they say it's anywhere between 279 and 281. There's a scale there along those numbers. I believe this figure of 273 on wikipedia means the floor right below it, which is covered by windows. Anyone knows what's the correct figure? Should we fix it? --Caue (T | C) 03:03, Thursday 2013-03-21 (UTC) yes we should!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Eiffel_Tower&action=edit&section=1#

Millimeters to inches conversion error[edit]

In the second paragraph under "Construction", 0.1 millimeter (mm) is stated incorrectly to be equal to 0.04 inches. As 1 meter = 39.37 inches, 1/1000 meter = 1 mm = 0.03937 inches (or simplifying, 1 meter = 0.04 inch) Thus, the correct conversion is 0.1 mm = 0.004 inch. 131.107.200.72 (talk) 15:18, 31 March 2015 (UTC) Perry Pierce

Not the right way to request an edit request (see example above). But, you are quite correct, hence Yes check.svg Done. DieSwartzPunkt (talk) 15:50, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

"The layout of both first and second levels was modified, with the space available for visitors on the second level."

This appears to be an incomplete sentence or improper transition by using "with" which should possibly should be "using"...

Pleas replace 1,036 feet with 987 feet.[1] Tjcsbcmlcmgc (talk) 17:51, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Per [1], 1,036 feet includes the broadcast antennas at the top, so it is not incorrect. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 19:47, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Bungy/Bungee Jump[edit]

A.J. Hackett did a bungy from the second level in 1987, not the top of the tower. Yes, he was arrested briefly by the French police, but was released shortly thereafter as the French police were satisfied that he was leaving the country almost immediately and would cause them no more trouble
