Template talk:Borders of Poland

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This template is named 'Polish borders' yet it describes only the 20th century changes. With Borders of Poland and Territorial changes of Poland articles, I suggest moving this template to Template:Polish borders (20th century) and creating a new template to reflect the larger scope articles or adding sections to cover pre-20th century events that shaped Polish borders.-- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  02:58, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

It wouldn’t be interesting to merge this template with the template about border changes of Germany? At least between the 19th and mainly 20th centuries, the border histories of these two countries are quite intertwined.

Anyway, I’ve just made a template that could serve as a base for the proposed merge (it’s at the right).--MaGioZal (talk) 06:08, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Against It doesn't include adequate coverage for either boarder changes between France & Germany and between Poland & Russia (or Germany & Lithuania). Taking the argument to the logical extension, why not just have one template for all of Europe during the 20th century.
I say leave the two templates as-is. Ajh1492 (talk) 03:10, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
We should remember that differently from other European states, the border history of Germany and Poland are deeply intertwined (mainly during the 20th century), and they are between the main factors and later settlements and accords during and after World Wars I and II.--MaGioZal (talk) 04:19, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
I could say the same thing about Russia and Poland. I could say the same thing about Poland and Lithuania buth have included neither in the template Ajh1492 (talk) 03:27, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
