Contradiction in Morocco articles[edit]

Both this article and Marrakesh state that they are the third largest city in Morocco. Oops. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.99.59.206 (talk) 19:25, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Now both claim to be the fourth largest. --146.90.158.110 (talk) 23:14, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Place names and street names in English[edit]

Throughout articles about Maroc here on wikipedia, a lot of effort has been made to translate names into English. This is appreciated, but as an ex resident of Maroc, and a native English speaker, it is very annoying that many many street names have been Anglicised, when all English speakers in Maroc happily use French or Arabic names. Thus, I would never use the phrase "Hassan Tower" preferring instead to use the French "Tour Hassan". Similarly, I would use "Avenue Mohammed Cinq" rather that "Mohammed Cinq Avenue" even when talking with fellow English speakers.

I would like to see this reflected in wiki articles on Maroc - does anybody have any thoughts on this? --Roxy the dog (resonate) 00:34, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Hah. I assume that's a no. Roxy, the dog. barcus 15:27, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
