Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Good evening, I was wondering wy some cities are showed instead of more bigger. We have in France : - Cusset for Vichy : https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=10/46.1375/3.3824 - Hesdin and Saint Michel sur Ternoise for Saint-Pol sur Ternoise https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=11/50.3987/2.2385 - Villeurbanne for Lyon https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=6/48.480/1.582 - Valence https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=12/44.9282/4.8728 - Boulogne sur Mer ! https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=12/50.7231/1.6181 - Longuenesse for Saint Omer https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=9/50.8935/2.1011

Usually the style compute the label priority based on population tags. For example, IIRC Villeurbanne is more populated than Lyon.

Some styles, like the French one, have more complicated rules, taking in account admin_level and such.

Thanks H_mlet, Even Villeurbanne (150khab) is less populated than Lyon (500khab). Of course ! I really don't understand because if there were another rules, that would be to fix some issues and reflect the real cultural et central position of cities compared with their suburbs... Have a nice weekend !
