Gyddanyzc or Gyddanzyc[edit]

According to actual quotation the first mentioning of the city was urbs Gyddanzyc, not Gyddanyzc. This can also be found here:

So, Polish nationalists are again tampering in order to establish Gdansk?? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.58.220.165 (talk) 16:58, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

alm?[edit]

"After a series of Polish-Teutonic Wars, in the Treaty of Kalisz (1343) the Order had to acknowledge that it would hold Pomerelia as an alm from the Polish Crown." Is "alm" really the correct term to be used here? I would see "fief" more fitting in the context ConjurerDragon (talk) 19:14, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Climate - daily mean temperatures[edit]

Something is wrong with Daily mean temperatures - these are too high in december, january and february. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marek c (talkcontribs) 12:56, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Volunteer Marek´s Polish Nationalistic Propaganda[edit]

It is unbelievable that a Polish Nationalist like Volunteer Marek is allowed to fake history with most extreme Polish Nationalist views. Most of his "references" are unverified Polish citations without any English translation AS REQUIRED by Wikipedia. So, this propaganda outrage has to be stopped and the facts have to replace all these inventions! Discordion (talk) 21:40, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Please don't remove sources from the article (and other disruptive edits)[edit]

Re: [1]. Please don't remove reliable sources from the article. If you need something translated, ask on talk. Additionally, it is simply not true that "polish references ... are not acceptable according to WIKIPEDIA GUIDELINES". What guideline? AND if that were the case, shouldn't you be removing all the German references as well? Anyway. The claim is simply nonsense.

Furthermore, the idea that in the 15th-18th century the town was a "independent German republic" is simply not true. I'd ask for sources, but the claim is so ridiculous that it's hardly worth the bother.

I'm also getting the sense that these edits are simply an attempt at provoking a 3RR violation.Volunteer Marek (talk) 22:55, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Your sources are simply not reliable, because nobody except the Polish can read and UNDERSTAND them. In fact it is a scandal that Wikipedia allows such ridiculous nationalistic influence of the Polish in the English version. OF COURSE YOU DO NOT TRANSLATE A SINGLE CITATION, BECAUSE EVERYBODY COULD SEE THAT THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTING YOUR STATEMENTS AND THAT THEY ARE MERE FAKE POLISH HISTORY PROPAGANDA! Otherwise, just translate every single one of your "reliable sources" to English and we will see. Discordion (talk) 23:03, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Whether a source is reliable or not has nothing to do with the language it is written in. See WP:RS. The sources are not "fake Polish history propaganda". Like I said, if you want something translated be specific. In the meantime please stop removing reliable sources and information from this article. It's disruptive.Volunteer Marek (talk) 23:16, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
And you might want to drop the all caps typing. Shouting does not make you more right.Volunteer Marek (talk) 23:17, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

changes 22.09[edit]

Volunteer Marek, you don't give any reasons for your changes, you remove information, your sources don't support your additions and when challenged on this you simply respond with "not again"?

What exactly are the additions in the "The Teutonic Knights" paragraph supposed to add? They simply repeat what has already been said.

The knights colonized the area, replacing local Kashubians and Poles with German settlers. -- Your source says nothing of local Poles.

and the rights of the Polish crown were limited to the following: The Polish king was allowed to stay in town for three days a year, he was further allowed to choose a permanent envoy from eight councilmen proposed to him by the town, and received an annual payment. -- Why remove this?

Beside the large number of German-speakers -- Again: Why remove information? Why not leave it as: -- Beside the German-speaking majority --67.215.5.130 (talk) 20:59, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
