Dallas/Forth Worth[edit]

Dallas Fort Worth is the 4th largest Metropolitan area in the Nation Houston is the 5th largest. Someone has edited the page to say Dallas/Forth Worth and Houston are the 8th and 10th largest respectively.

The current MSA shows DFW and Houston as 4th and 5th largest

Dallas Fort Worth is indeed the 4th largest metro area and Houston the 5th. Someone has incorrectly edited the page to reflect 8th and 10th largest: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Metropolitan_Statistical_Areas — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:80E2:9E60:F032:BEB3:2075:8FB4 (talk) 13:22, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing that. It's been fixed. Sorry it took so long. Woodshed (talk) 20:15, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
There seems to be some confusion of metro areas and stat areas; two different things. The sentence in the lead explicitly refers to metro area, and indeed links to the ranked list at List of metropolitan areas of the United States, where DFW and Houston are listed as 8 and 10. I've restored to that for now so that it is at least unbroken. No objection if someone wants to change the language to one of the stat areas and change the corresponding list link (List of Core Based Statistical Areas?), but you'll need to figure out which type of stat area (core, primary, etc). May be simpler to leave as is. Kuru (talk) 02:38, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Semi-protected edit request on 8 September 2015[edit]

Please change "Spanish: Tejas" in the first sentence to "Spanish: Texas or Tejas", as the spelling "Texas" is the one recommended by the Royal Spanish Academy (http://lema.rae.es/dpd/?key=texas), with Tejas as an alternative. The "Texas" spelling is also the primary one used on the Spanish Wikipedia. 2.103.110.100 (talk) 16:50, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 21 April 2016[edit]

In the section title Government and Politics, under the bold section State Government, the last sentence of the second paragraph reads

"Thus, the FY 2015 dates from September 1, 2015 through August 31, 2015."

This should be "Thus, the FY 2015 dates from September 1, 2014 through August 31, 2015." instead.

Semi-protected edit request on 24 June 2016 - Updated visitdallas.com website backlinks[edit]

The Dallas Convention & Visitors Center has recently updated their website resulting in two broken links on this page.

Could you please update the following links?

=== Arts === Section Founded in 1892, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, also called "The Modern", is Texas's oldest art museum. Fort Worth also has the Kimbell Art Museum, the Amon Carter Museum, the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, the Will Rogers Memorial Center, and the Bass Performance Hall downtown. The Arts District of Downtown Dallas has arts venues such as the Dallas Museum of Art, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, the Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art, and the Nasher Sculpture Center.[1]

=== Commerce === Section Texas's affluence stimulates a strong commercial sector consisting of retail, wholesale, banking and insurance, and construction industries. Examples of Fortune 500 companies not based on Texas traditional industries are AT&T, Kimberly-Clark, Blockbuster, J. C. Penney, Whole Foods Market, and Tenet Healthcare.[2] Nationally, the Dallas–Fort Worth area, home to the second shopping mall in the United States, has the most shopping malls per capita of any American metropolitan area.[3]
