Talk:List of municipalities in Massachusetts
The map is somewhat problematic in that it doesn't show the names of cities and towns. Such a map is available at , though I don't know how the Commonwealth of Massachusetts handles copyright of its works. GIS files for production of new images from raw data are also available at . -- Beland (talk) 10:10, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
It should be fairly easy to merge in List of municipalities in Massachusetts by population by making a sortable wikitable with the following columns:
- Type ("city" or "town")
- Support. Barring sufficient opposition (which I don't expect) by April 20, you should merged them into a single sortable table.—Markles 16:28, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

"State of Massachusetts"?
Near the top, I see "Minor civil divisions or "municipalities" in the U.S. state of Massachusetts ... " Afaik, Mass. is technically not a state, but a Commonwealth. Shouldn't that text be corrected, if this is true? (Fwiw, I'm a Mass. resident, although not really well-informed about this topic, just now.) Regards, Nikevich (talk) 21:38, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
- It is correct to phrase a sentence "The U.S. state of Massachusetts", and more formally, also correct to rephrase to "The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is a U.S. state...."

Two incorrect entries
This list includes two entries, Bradford and Hyannis, that are not on the official list of Massachusetts cities and towns. http://www.mass.gov/portal/government-taxes/local/cities-towns/cities-and-towns.html NewtonCourt (talk) 20:39, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Additionally, it contains a number of towns in a county, Somers, that doesn't seem to exist. One of which (Belchester) is purported to have a population of over 600,000 people, although I can't find any evidence of a city or town of Belchester on Wikipedia, and a city of that size would surely have an article. I think the whole list needs to be checked for subtle vandalism.188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:16, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
I deleted all the towns (most of which do not even exist) that made up the fictional Somers County. The user who added them has vandalized a number of similar articles. Terageorge (talk) 19:24, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
