re: K. Rudzki i S-ka[edit]

Certainly looks like a DYK material. Go ahead and nom it. I'd advice adding a ref to the last sentence, and to the name section. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:50, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

  Good day/night time!
    I found your map in Wikipedia with one mistake... There is no Viatka town in Central Russia (Kaluga region).It was small settlement of Piesochnia in 1920 at this place. An old town of Viatka (also named Kirov nowadays) is situated much to east - near Ural mountains. Best wishes!
   Доброе время суток!
   Случайно обнаружил Вашу карту .... но с одной небольшой ошибкой. Не существует города Вятки в Центральной России (Калужская область). В 1920 году на этом месте был посёлок Песочня. Старинный город Вятка (ныне также называемый Киров) находится гораздо восточнее - около Уральских гор.  Всего лучшего!

K. Rudzki i S-ka[edit]


mam problem z tym zdaniem: "In the aftermath of the January Uprising Count Zamoyski, Konstanty Rudzki's benefactor, was exiled to France, and his riverine flotilla and the river shipyard were taken over by Maurycy Fajans[citation needed]. "

Znalazłem źródło nadające się do niego (tutaj), ale nie ma tam nic nt. Spółki Rudzkiego, ani giserni. Można to pośrednio powiązać poprzez Warsztaty Żeglugi Parowej Zamoyskiego, ale znów ta informacja nie jest w sumie na temat artykułu. No chyba że w kontekście następnego zdania, że Rudzki stracił głównego Klienta. Poza tym nie jest wprost powiedziane, że Fajans przejął Warsztaty Żeglugi Parowej, ale że nimi kierował od 1866, a potem kupił trzy statki. Co o tym wszystkim sądzisz? D kuba (talk) 10:03, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

no to mi bardzo nie pomogłeś:) chociaż masz rację, że bez Zamoyskiego pewnie nic by z tego nie było. Spróbuję przeredagować na, ale tłumaczenia na angielski się nie podejmę:) generalnie nie mam pojęcia o żegludze, na Twój art. natknąłem się w DYK i napisałem o tym w Ten Fajans po prostu dał mi do myślenia, bo nazwisko nie pojawia się w żadnym z podanych przez Ciebie źródle. A co do Lilpopa i spóły - widziałem - też w DYK, ale na jest już artykuł (nawet DA, choć ma luki w przypisach). Pozdrawiam, D kuba (talk) 11:53, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

1940 French Army of the Alps[edit]

Hey, I am canvassing active MILHIST members who have stated they are interested in French military history during the Second World War.

II am wondering if you can help, I am trying to improve the quality of the Italian invasion of France article. I have checked the limited sources I can access regarding the Army of the Alps, and nothing seems to add up. Some sources state that on 20 June, when the Italian main attack was launched against the Alpine Line, that the army had 3-4 divisions and others state it was as high as 7. Do you have any information that can clarify what the state of this army was?

While I was editing Wikipedia, I went to get a drink of apple juice. At that moment one of my friends tried to edit Wikipedia, causing our misunderstanding. He's a novice editor himself, but he made a mistake. I'm so sorry that this happened.

re: Battle of Warsaw (1831) on FAC[edit]

While I think you'll get some useful suggestions, I predict the article will fail on prose grounds. I cannot get my May Constitution of Poland to FA for 3 years now, despite several rounds of copyediting by native speakers. :( --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 00:35, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Wikipedia Monument[edit]

You may want to comment there in semi-official capacity, perhaps :) --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:53, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

I was hoping to be there as a Junior Wrangler on behalf of the Teahouse (btw, the Teahouse now has the additional role of Teahouse Head in addition to Teahouse Guests, Teahouse Hosts, Teahouse Founder, Teahouse Maitre d', Teahouse Awesome Founder, all this in addition to my own humble role of Teahouse Junior Wrangler). Unfortunately it ended up not being practical at this late stage. I did learn that Ryanair provides way more flights to Poland than Easyjet does! Possibly I should have been investigating flights to eastern Germany from the start.
Perhaps there will be other opportunities though... inter alia, I'm sure Wikimania will return to eastern Europe sooner than most might think. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 21:17, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

bronislaw urbanski convert from english to polish wikipedia[edit]

Hi Halibutt I really dont know how to achieve this, can you help with copying my fathers Wikipedia page that is in english to the Polish Wikipedia as is?

Actually, if you can't find anything in the sources cited, would you be willing to file an AfD? DS (talk) 03:39, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
I hate losing contributors too, but if they're not being useful contributors, what's the loss. I take your point about waiting for him to clarify, though. Let's see what (if anything) he can tell us. DS (talk) 11:40, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Halibutt, please excuse me I dont know my way around Wikipedia, all I tried to do is place up years ago what I have found out about my father...but all with references, you may not find them but i have them. Also alot of people are hacking the page or they may call it cleaning it up but adding things without my permission and was tempted to restore it. Please note I do not understand what citation needed means, I never changed it like my relatives were Alfred Urbanski and Franciszek Urbanski one of the leaders of the Trial of Sixteen I have family photographs of him. Also papers from the U.S. Army, where it says citation for his POW number is from who is to challenge these?? I did say in the documents that he CHANGED his birthday and name to save himself often. In his birthday is out by days 1/10/1912 instead of 10/10/1912 as he knew there were around 19 other Bronislaw Urbanskis captured then. Also his video of capture then heading to Stalag VA is on youtube at 1:min into the video they pan up and down on him.

However things like the British Infrantry Division I never put there!

He was one of twelve bodyguards for general sikorski, using a "different" name as after stalag vb they placed him on a potato farm to feed the third reich, where he escaped and went to france onwards. We know precisely how and who killed the President General Wladyslaw Sikorski but it would be too damaging to put this there. And it goes on. This is not just guesswork I have materials that back all this, HOWEVER not what other people add to this. Yes I am his son.

RE: Polish September Campaign Template[edit]

I added the Slovak invasion to the Battle of the Border section of the Invasion of Poland campaignbox (this seemed the best place for it since fighting was so minor it would not make sense to get its own entire separate section) and I had a few additional ideas about it that I wanted to run by you. First: given that the Soviets were not the main combatant against the Poles in Lwów (fighting from 12-22 September; Soviets do not invade until 17 September and do not arrive at Lwów until 19 September), I was thinking it should perhaps be added to the Southern Front section? Second, the Battle of Kock is in the Soviet invasion section even though there were no Soviets involved. However I am unsure where it should be placed (Southern Front?). What do you think?
