Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Polish rulers)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There has been an attempt to create a naming system specifically for Polish monarchs (but it is just a proposal and never received consensus), against the system used for other European monarchs. There is also the fact that most Polish monarchs now are located in places which contravene to general naming convention. There is no consensus for permission to use an exception for Polish monarchs, and such permission should be sought from consensus at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (names and titles) where there is the thread Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (names and titles)#Need of particular exception/ convention for Polish monarchs. At that spot there are editors who are more or less experienced in overall picture of monarch naming and not only one country. It is deception to advertise any system for naming before a consensus there is convinced of the need for such exception. I hope all of you continue the naming scheme discussion for Polish monarchs there, before continuing or creating policy forks. Shilkanni 13:06, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

  • agree with this analysis of current state of affairs, which means: relay this to Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (names and titles). And which also means that until further notice current separate NC proposals for Polish rulers are rejected. --Francis Schonken 13:42, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
  • agree with Shilkanni, and the rejection of this proposal. There have been too many forked discussions about this matter, especially in nooks and crannies of Wikipedia that do not have the attention they need to garner a genuine cross-cultural community consensus. Moving all of the discussions to one centralized location at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (names and titles)#Need of particular exception/ convention for Polish monarchs is an excellent idea. --Elonka 18:19, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
  • agree also. It is sad that this little coup was allowed to take place without anyone but its two perpetrators being informed. Despite all his attempts to convince, Piotrus has given no reason other than his own patriotism as to why these monarchs should be different from those of other European monarchies. - Calgacus (ΚΑΛΓΑΚΟΣ) 19:12, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
