Please don't remove sources from the article (and other disruptive edits)[edit]

Re: [1]. Please don't remove reliable sources from the article. If you need something translated, ask on talk. Additionally, it is simply not true that "polish references ... are not acceptable according to WIKIPEDIA GUIDELINES". What guideline? AND if that were the case, shouldn't you be removing all the German references as well? Anyway. The claim is simply nonsense.

Furthermore, the idea that in the 15th-18th century the town was a "independent German republic" is simply not true. I'd ask for sources, but the claim is so ridiculous that it's hardly worth the bother.

I'm also getting the sense that these edits are simply an attempt at provoking a 3RR violation.Volunteer Marek (talk) 22:55, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Your sources are simply not reliable, because nobody except the Polish can read and UNDERSTAND them. In fact it is a scandal that Wikipedia allows such ridiculous nationalistic influence of the Polish in the English version. OF COURSE YOU DO NOT TRANSLATE A SINGLE CITATION, BECAUSE EVERYBODY COULD SEE THAT THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTING YOUR STATEMENTS AND THAT THEY ARE MERE FAKE POLISH HISTORY PROPAGANDA! Otherwise, just translate every single one of your "reliable sources" to English and we will see. Discordion (talk) 23:03, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Whether a source is reliable or not has nothing to do with the language it is written in. See WP:RS. The sources are not "fake Polish history propaganda". Like I said, if you want something translated be specific. In the meantime please stop removing reliable sources and information from this article. It's disruptive.Volunteer Marek (talk) 23:16, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
And you might want to drop the all caps typing. Shouting does not make you more right.Volunteer Marek (talk) 23:17, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

This article is clearly driven by the fact that the city was conquered and annexed by Poland in 1945. No where is mentioned that Gdansk/Danzig had been a predominant (low)german speaking city since at least the 14th century (there was a fluent dialect continuum between todays lower Germany and dutch or flemish regions). Which is obvious beeing a leading part of the Hanseatic league. In the article it is just "large number of German-speakers". What is large? 15, 20, 40%? In the middle of the 17th century, Danzig had the largest german speaking population world wide, before Vienna took the lead.--Ickerbocker (talk) 23:07, 30 July 2015 (UTC)


There's a lot of history between the 14C and 1945- which bit specifically are you objecting to? And please try to be accurate- it wasn't Poland, it was Hitler's mate Stalin, that conquered the city in 1945.

Danzig[edit]

Shouldn't this name be in the Name section? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:2430:3:2500:0:0:B807:3DA0 (talk) 21:24, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

It's mentioned in the lead and the etymology section. PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 23:22, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
PaleCloudedWhite, what are the rules for selecting foreign names for the lead in general? Not only for this article. It is obvious that some names remain only in the name section but others are selected for the lead and the name section. Is that selection in accordance with the rules of Wikipedia or is just arbitrary? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:2430:3:2500:0:0:B807:3DA0 (talk) 15:38, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
See WP:OTHERNAMES, which uses this article as an example. In this case there is a separate "Names" section because there are more than three names for this city. Kendall-K1 (talk) 23:36, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
