Article request[edit]

Could someone put together something on Wojciech Miaskowski? No article here, as I discovered when putting together Maps of Ukraine, but he has Polish and Ukrainian articles. Nyttend (talk) 02:51, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

@Nyttend: Done. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:58, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 05:00, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Poland-Turkey relations[edit]

Could you stop with this "Turkey recognized Poland even though partitions" crap. There are no valid data about this. All myth about sultan asking "where is polish diplomat" was created by a XIX cen. writer and there is no historical data about ottoman empire disagreeing with polish partitions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) August 27, 2014

Dear anon, your complain is lacking information (such as which article are you referring to) for us to be able to reply. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:03, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Poland–Turkey relations, the source quoted in the article is unavailable and its quality unknown. Xx236 (talk) 06:25, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
This article by Paulina Dominik seems fairly reliable (at least some bibliography is cited) and it nicely debunks and explains the origin of the myth of the Ottoman chef de protocol ostentatiously asking, "Where is the envoy from Lehistan?" — Kpalion(talk) 06:47, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Aniela Aszpergerowa[edit]

May I ask for expert advice, please on a recent change by an IP editor to an existing article on a Polish subject. The changes are here and it would be reassuring to have the linguistic point (see edit summary) checked by a knowledgeable editor. Grateful for any input. – Tim riley talk 14:52, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

The IP editor corrected grammatical cases, 100% correct edit. D_T_G (PL) 20:48, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Excellent! Thank you for that expert opinion. Tim riley talk 22:02, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Translation of Polish Wikipedia article[edit]

I'd like to know if I can get a Polish Wikipedia article translated into English. I was directed to this page. The Polish Wikipedia article is here: Błogosławiona Bronisława. Please let me know. Thanks. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 21:56, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

@Joseph A. Spadaro: Seems done (Bronislava of Poland created Sept 2 by User:Alansplodge). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:04, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
@Piotrus: Thanks. But I believe that you misunderstood my request. I was asking for the Polish article to be translated into English. User:Alansplodge did indeed create an article about Bronislava of Poland. But, I am requesting a translation of the Polish Wikipedia article on her, in order to add to and improve the English Wikipedia article. In other words, User:Alansplodge created an article, but I do not believe he created it simply by translating the Polish article. Thanks. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 16:20, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Agreed; I used English language sources from Google, so there may be information in the Polish version that I haven't picked up. Alansplodge (talk) 16:33, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, exactly. And that's exactly what I am trying to determine. If the Polish article has any information of value that we can add to the English article. Thanks. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 18:55, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

GAN Maximilian Kolbe[edit]

I am about to submit this for a WP:GAN. Any comments, reviews, and edits are appreciated! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:15, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Help with source translations[edit]

There's an ongoing AfD for Jakub Romanowski. The sources are all in Polish and nobody at the AfD really understands the language, so I was hoping someone could have a look at them and add them to the correct statements in the article. If you have a moment a small expansion would be good too. The citations are to the printed copies but there are PDFs at the article subject's website. Kindzmarauli (talk) 13:47, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
