New changes[edit]

Propositum, some your changes are very controversial, for example:

  • you use term "conurbation" but most of independent sources show the area as urban agglomeration or metropolitan area, not conurbation
  • you show Wrocław as currently capital of Silesia but today, Silesia is not large Prussian Province or large medieval Duchy, currently Silesia is historical region and there is no capital. Also, between Poles - currently, Katowice is capital of Silesia, informal. So, status of capital of Silesia is very disputed and you can not use that term in article without consensus.
  • some, small your changes also are controversial.

If you have different views - ok, but must to be a consensus for these changes. Franek K. (talk) 10:56, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

And some nores about Propositum lead

  • In Silesia were (are) five nationalities: Poles, Czechs, Germans, Silesians and Jews
  • "Czechia" is not correct name, it was Crown of Bohemia--Yopie (talk) 15:38, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
If You have some notes, You may change something or discuss it, but not delete all. Everything I have written is true. Katowice with adjacent cities is most typical conurbation. Wrocław has always been the capital of Silesia. There were two main nationalities (we can also say wider Slavs instead od Poles). And so on. You should be happy that the lead is already done well. Propositum (talk) 15:46, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
You mentioned in brackets that Ostrava lies partly in Moravia, but Katowice 'connurbation' also lies partly in the historical Lesser Poland (Zagłębie Dąbrowskie with Sosnowiec, Jaworzno). Part of Silesia in the 18th century remained within Habsburgs' Empire (Austrian Silesia). Wrocław is the historical capital. Polish (...) (often 19th-century immigrants to the coal basin) - well I would say that a bulk of the working class leaving in familoks of industrial Upper Silesian towns were of a rural local origin, not mentioning that but saying that what is above about immigrants, with the word 'often', leaves a subtle misleading impression, I would say. D_T_G (PL) 17:29, 16 August 2014 (UTC) P.S. You also forgot a sizable Lach-speaking Czech population in Austrian Silesia. D_T_G (PL) 18:01, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
