Tomasz A. Wegrzanowski. Wikipedian from Dolny Slask, Poland.

As you can see from list below, I write most about Biology/Chemistry, Poland, Manga/Anime

and Free software. I also write about Neutral point of view.


I also contribute to Polish wikipedia. See my page on Polish wikipedia.

If you want image of chemical compound, list it here.

  • (place for requests for chemical compounds)


Of course starting articles isn't main form of contribution on Wikipedia.


Rules I proposed:

  • Always fill Summary field
  • Always list homepage of person or organization article is about


I'm generally for Scientific Point of View, which sometimes, but not very often,

is in conflict with Strictly Neutral Point of View.


I'm also very annoyed by links like this: [ [ X ] ] s, and I often change them to correct [ [ X | Xs ] ].


The Proposal[edit]

Immediately before replying to emotional subject, one should make useful neutral contribution to wikipedia,

like starting or editing an article


It's impossible and useless to stop people from emotional discussions.


I think that human emotions should be exploited by such informal standard.

It may also temperate discussion, as people won't reply immediately after they got angry.


I hereby promise to more or less satisfy this Proposal, even if I were the only one who do it.

  • Jimbo Wales, especially I will do this before arguing with The Cunc. I promise. It's a great idea.
  • WojPob
  • sodium who rapidly sees what little spare time he has diffusing away :)
  • Ed Poor, hoping this will reduce friction with scientists and others regarding controversial topics.
  • AxelBoldt
