Hello. I noticed you created the collage for Polish people and I was wondering if you tell me where you created it. I also want to make one that contains 40 people. --TheShadowCrow (talk) 19:20, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Mieczysław Gocuł[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Mieczysław Gocuł has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Keφr 10:08, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • January 2014 • Issue II[edit]

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • January 2014 • Issue II
For our freedom and yours

Welcome to the second issue of WikiProject Poland newsletter, the Monitor (named after the first Polish newspaper).

Our Project has been operational since 1 June, 2005, and also serves as the Poland-related Wikipedia notice board. I highly recommend watchlisting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland page, so you can be aware of the ongoing discussions. We hope you will join us in them, if you haven't done so already! Unlike many other WikiProjects, we are quite active; we get close to a hundred discussion threads each year and we do a pretty good job at answering all issues raised. Last year we were featured in the Signpost, and our interviewer was amazed at our activity. In the end, however, even as active as we are, we are just a tiny group - you can easily become one of our core members!

In addition to a lively encyclopedic, Poland-related, English-language discussion forum, we have numerous useful tools that can be of use to you - and that you could help us maintain and develop:

  • we have an active assessment department. As of now, our project has tagged almost 83,000 pages as Poland-related - that's an improvement of over 3,000 new pages since the last newsletter. Out of which 30 still need a quality assessment, and 2,000, importance assessment. We have done a lot to clear the backlog here (3 years ago those numbers were 1,500 and 20,000, respectively). Can you help assess a few pages?
    • assessing articles is as easy as filling in the class= and importance= parameters on the talk page in the {{WPPOLAND|class=|importance=}} template. See here for a how-to guide.
  • once an article has an assessment template, it will appear in our article alerts and news feed, which provides information on which Poland-related articles are considered for deletion, move, or are undergoing a Good or Featured review. Watchlisting that feed, in addition to watchlisting our project's main page, is a good way to make sure you stay up to date on most Poland-related discussions.
  • you can also see detailed deletion discussions at Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Poland (which is a good place to watchlist if you just want to stay up to date on possible deletions of Poland-related content)
  • we have also begun B-class quality reviews on our talk page, and if our activity increases, hopefully we will be able to institute our own A-class quality reviews. As of now, we have about 500 C-class articles in need of a B-class review. If you'd like to help with them, instructions for doing B-class reviews are to be found in point 10 of our assessment FAQ. In addition to this automated list, you are also encouraged to help review articles from our B-class reviews requested list found here.
  • also, those articles will be included in our cleanup listing, which allows us to see which top-importance articles are in need for attention, and so on. We have tens of thousands articles in need of cleanup there, so if you ever need something to do, just look at this gigantic list. (I am currently reviewing the articles tagged with notability, either proving them notable or nominating for deletion; there are still several dozens left if you want to help!).
  • did you know that newly created Poland-related articles are listed here. They need to be reviewed, often cleaned-up, occasionally nominated for deletion, and their creators may need to be welcomed and invited to our project if they show promise as new authors of Poland-related content.
  • we are maintaining a Portal:Poland
  • automated Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland/Popular pages lists the most popular Poland-related pages from the previous month(s)
  • Breaking news: we are looking for a Wikipedian in Residence for the New York City area. See Wikipedia:GLAM/Józef Piłsudski Institute of America for details.

This is not all; on our page you can find a list of useful templates (including userboxes), awards and other tools!


With all that said, how about you join our discussions at WT:POLAND? Surely, there must be something you could help others with, or perhaps you are in need of assistance yourself?

It took me three years to finish this issue. Feel free to help out getting the next one before 2017 by being more active in WikiProject management :)

I understand that You are a great Polish patriot and You believe in Polish point of view to the history, but, please, be polite: I haven't deleted the information that Тадэвуш Касцюшка was a Polish: I've just added that Belarusian scientists are sure that he was Belarusian (You could tell me, that there was not Belarusian nation in the beginning of 19-th century, but Belarusian historyography believes that Ruthenians and Litwins were just renamed into Belarusians because of the policy of Russian Empire).

I undid you edits on Israel Meir Kagan. He was born in the Russian Empire in a town that is now in Belarus. Why then do you call him Polish? Debresser (talk) 10:37, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

- He was born on the former lands of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and his ancestors were rabbis and Jews living on Polish territory. But I guess you're right that I shouldn't hastily include such information without proper referencing. Thanks

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello Oliszydlowski, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to Wawel Cathedral has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:33, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

The template above includes some very useful information about our copyright policies, which is why I've given it to you, but I wanted to add a personal note in light of your comment when you restored the copied material to Wawel Cathedral: "The information added can be copied and pasted, as said in the violations guide. Only info WITHOUT copyright can't be copied."
Under the U.S. law that governs Wikipedia, copyright is granted automatically to all content as soon as it is published. You don't have to put up a notice that material is copyrighted or explicitly reserve it. The simple act of writing it down grants copyright protection in full. The only way we know that content is without copyright is if we can prove that copyright has lapsed (because the content has gotten very old), if we can prove that the copyright owner has relinquished the right, or if we can prove that (under the U.S. law), the material is not eligible for copyright. So, for instance, the United States government has released copyright to content produced by its employees in the course of their work, but the government of France has not. Since the U.S. government respects French copyright, works by the French government have copyright protection in the U.S. However, under U.S. law, "edicts of government" are not copyright protected in the U.S. no matter what the government that produced them may think. The U.S. believes that the laws that govern people belong to the people.
I can find no evidence that [1] has been released from copyright, and it is certainly eligible for copyright protection. For copyright to have lapsed, it would have had to have been published (and we would have to be able to prove that it had) at least before 1977 and in most cases before 1923. (It has to meet special conditions if published between 1923 and 1977 for copyright to have lapsed. See Wikipedia:Public domain.)
If you've copy-pasted content anywhere else on Wikipedia from sources you believed to be public domain, please go back and verify that the content is truly public domain. If it has not, it needs to be removed immediately in compliance with our copyright policy and Terms of Use. If you need help, if you let me know, I'll try to assist you. It is much better to do it now at this early date than to wait, as removal becomes more and more difficult the longer content is published.
If you have questions about any of this, you are very welcome to stop by my talk page or to attract my attention here with a "ping" (you probably know this can be accomplished as simply as by formatting my username: [[User:Moonriddengirl]]. There are also templates, like {{ping}}). --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:46, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

= I am sorry about this, as I'm sure it must be discouraging and I have every belief that you were not intending to create issues under our copyright policy. You seem to have been scrupulous about citing your sources. It is simply, unfortunately, that we cannot use content copied from other sources in this way without proof that they are public domain or compatibly licensed. (Even when they are, copying must be explicitly acknowledged, to accord with Wikipedia:Plagiarism.

I found content copied from three different sources into Szydłowiec (I've reverted), all of which bear clear copyright reservation: [2], [3], and [4]. I also reverted content pasted into Stanisław Szeptycki from clearly copyright-reserved sources (listed on the article's talk page). Stanisław Kostka Potocki is copied largely or perhaps even entirely from [5]. That article is now blanked. Ignacy Mościcki also seems to be copied, from a 2007 magazine profile. It has been blanked.

Because of this, I have opened a contributor copyright investigation at Wikipedia:Contributor copyright investigations/20150107. The purpose of this page is to facilitate cleanup of any remaining issues. To avoid cluttering your page, now that you are advised of our policies, notices of individual problems will not be placed here, but there. Please watchlist that page if you want to keep an eye on it. There is quite a backlog of these investigations, so the investigation could be opened for quite some time. You can help, if you would like, by proactively removing all content you have pasted to articles. If you want to rewrite it, I would encourage you to read Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. I often see a problem with people trying in good faith to rewrite this content but creating a derivative work we cannot retain. It must be rewritten completely.

If you have any questions about this, please let me know. Again, I believe you were working in good faith, and I am very sorry for this complication. I am happy to talk to you about our policies and how to comply with them going forward, if you like. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 15:57, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Oliszydlowski: Please be so kind as to reply to the above. You are editing again - but your first priority should be to explain all your edits at Wikipedia:Contributor copyright investigations/20150107. Currently other editors have to spend their time and review your edits, while you seem to not have replied to them (us). @Moonriddengirl, Poeticbent:. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:06, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

I was unaware that I have violated the rules, I thought that copied information from websites and other sources found on the internet is allowed if referenced. I must have misread the information provided. I was always trying to work in "good faith", trying to improve important and significant articles on Wikipedia.

Picture[edit]

- Portrait of John III Sobieski (Anonymous, 4th quarter of XVII century)

Hello, Oliszydlowski. I realize that you have not yet had the opportunity to realise why that picture was added, you reverted. Maybe you didn't realize we are trying to nominate this picture Portrait of John III Sobieski as a Featured Picture. The same way there are Featured articles, there are Featured pictures too. That would be Wikipedia:Featured Pictures.

The painting is a google file and is from the project Google art project, that deliver high-resolution images of artworks in collaboration with the museums. The Google Art Project is noted for its accuracy in the depictions of the artworks. This one was comming directly from the museum, and has a good chance to make it as a very good scan of high quality of a notable and important person. I have until now nominated 54 featured pictures. I am familiar with the requirements.

I tried to add a file that had a fair fighting chance, because I know how pictures are judged and what it takes to became a FP. The picture that in the lead and the other pictures in the article would get quickly Oppose votes for a number of reasons. It is about how pictures are judged. I'm afraid that I if you remove the picture, we are not going to make it to nominate a painting of John III Sobieski as Featured picture. That would be a great pity. Please add back the picture to the article. Hafspajen (talk) 14:22, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Will let you know about it. Hafspajen (talk) 13:37, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

I notice you didn't add sources in [6]. In other cases, you cite Polish Wikipedia as a source. While such expansions are useful, they are only a temporary help. Good articles have to have all their facts (senences) reviewed and fact-checked with a source, like what I am doing with Janusz Radziwiłł (1612–55). I very much appreciate your interest in those topics, but if you want to help to make those contents high quality, I'd recommend you start using reliable sources, and footnotes. It's not that difficult - you can use any historical book or encyclopedic entry as a source. Polski Slownik Biograficzny has thousands of entries that we can use as a sources, for example. In any second-hand book store in Poland you can pick up dozens of interesting biographies for under 10 zloties. Not the least, once you expand a content with reliable sources, it can be featured on the Main Page through the T:TDYK tool. If you would like, I can share some of my PSB scans with you; I have a number waiting for me to find time to go over them. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:39, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, I would really appreciate that. - Oliszydlowski, 9:43, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
