What's the comment or the question? ICE77 (talk) 18:39, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Peace of Paris of 1763 or 1783?

Kingdom of Spain refers to Peace of Paris (1783) ; I think it rather should be Peace of Paris (1763). -- Preceding unsigned comment added by Circenses (talk o contribs) 21:42, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Elevation - like2do.com resource as an archive

Sometimes I like to cross-check facts by looking through old revisions. I went back to 2005 and found this:

"New Orleans is a unique city because some areas of the city range from 1 to 20 feet (0.3 to 6 m) below sea level, and rain-water must be pumped out as fast as it falls to prevent flooding. In addition to the urban areas of the city, New Orleans includes undeveloped wetland, especially in the east. The city is very flood-prone. If it rains more than 1 inch (25 mm) there is usually some form of area flooding, which due to the climate can be a fairly regular occurence. Because of this, nearly all of New Orleans' cemeteries use above ground crypts rather than underground burial."

Now the article states that the range is from -2 meters (six feet) to positive 20 feet (6 meters). B137 (talk) 01:44, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Change terminology - "illegal immigrants" to "undocumented immigrants"

Dear Wikipedia,

I am writing to request a change to the terminology "illegal immigrants" utilized in the demographic section of the wiki entry on New Orleans. Please substitute with "undocumented immigrants" as this has been adopted as the more accurate term. Journalistic sources such as AP adopted this change in 2013, and I hope like2do.com resource will also drop the use of a questionable term. Thank you.23:00, 17 December 2016 (UTC)Wikimohan102 (talk)

References nos. 64 and 65 are cited to support the statement that the average sea level in the city of New Orleans is between 1 and 2 feet below sea level. Ref 64 is a peer-review report; ref 65 is a newspaper article the cites ref 64. Careful reading of both references reveals that neither supports the statement re average sea level. The statement should be deleted. 2602:306:BDCA:1B30:205B:5971:FBDB:3F62 (talk) 12:20, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Questions and comments

This is a good article. I read it and I found it pleasant as well as well organized. I found a variety of inconsistencies or errors/problems that I document below. I also put a good amount of energy into reorganizing the layout that I found mediocre, first because some images were of different sizes and second because they were in the wrong location (not next to the text where they pertain). I also noticed that this article is corrected regularly and some of the things I planned to correct where already corrected. Here are a few things I want to ask or say.

1. "Nearly all of the surviving 18th-century architecture of the Vieux Carré (French Quarter) dates from the Spanish period, notably excepting the Old Ursuline Convent."

If that's the case then why is the area called French Quarter instead of Spanish Quarter?

2. "In this period, the state legislature passed more restrictions on manumissions of slaves and virtually ended it in 1852."

The above has a note at the bottom of the article by Lawrence J. Kotlikoff and Anton J. Rupert. However, the article does not add that "in 1857 the legislature simply outlawed the manumission of slaves". This information is important and it should be added to the article because it implies that slavery was over temporarily between 1852 and 1857.

3. I visited the city in December and I learned from local people that the 9th Ward was the area most affected by hurricane Katrina. This would be useful information for the same section. I'm quite sure there is some source of information in merit.

4. Part of the "Post-disaster recovery" section is about sports. I think anything related to sport should be in the "Sports" section.

5. "For structures in hazardous areas and residents who do not relocate, the committee recommended major floodproofing measures--such as elevating the first floor of buildings to at least the 100-year flood level."

What does "100-year flood level" mean?

6. Listing "0.0% Pacific Islander" sounds pretty ridiculous. Omit instead.

7. "In 1994 New Orleans was named 'Murder Capitol of America'".

Should it be capital like it's spelled below in the same section?

Dubious founding date is discrediting Wikipedia; please stop putting it back in without source

I *again* removed the dubious/unsourced if not simply false claim that New Orleans was supposedly founded on 7 May 1718, again including a source as to why it was dubious. I don't know why the misinformation was added back without comment or source. This being New Orleans tricentennial year, there has been local attention on the founding and I have seen multiple local writers blaming like2do.com resource for spreading this rumor or simply mocking like2do.com resource for the error. Please, do not put that claim back without providing supporting information.

Here's an article by locally well regarded historian and author Richard Campanella, who notes that no date for any official founding, but that Bienville et al seem to have landed and began clearing space for the planned city in late April or early March of the 1718.

New Orleans City Council page

The New Orleans City Council page is terribly outdated. I am not savvy enough to edit the table that charts out who was elected to the council and when. If anyone has the time and interest, that page could use an update with the latest elected officials.
