Hello fellow Wikipedians,

Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

YesY Archived sources have been checked N but failed to be useful/working Two failed because link rot had set in before they were archived; the others are okay. Worldbruce (talk) 04:55, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

We still need to configure out which city - Lyon or Marseille - is the SECOND LARGEST FRENCH CITY. Both articles for these two towns advertise them as being THE second biggest city in France.

Can anybody explain this sentence to me please "The city is in the head of the biggest French-speaking university of the world, Aix-Marseille University". I propose deleting it unless somebody can either say what it means or possibly supply the French original. Everybody got to be somewhere! (talk) 22:10, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

It certainly could be expressed better, but is reasonably clear, as contributions from editors whose first language is not English go. The largest university in the Francophone world, Aix-Marseille University, is headquartered in Marseille.[1][2][3] --Worldbruce (talk) 04:25, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Massilia Sound System[edit]

How can this musical formation Massilia Sound System not be mentioned in an article about Marseille? Everybody got to be somewhere! (talk) 22:14, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

"first metropolis in surface"?[edit]

The quote is from the lead. Since this can't refer to surface "land area", what does "surface" refer to? See Urban area (France)#List of France's aires urbaines (metropolitan areas). -- BullRangifer (talk) 16:35, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
