11th and 7th millennium BC

A tag has been placed on 11th and 7th millennium BC, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the page appears to have no meaningful content or history, and the text is unsalvageably incoherent.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the page's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself.

If the page you created was a test, please use the sandbox for any other experiments you would like to do. Feel free to leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions about this. brewcrewer (yada, yada) 17:19, 21 December 2007 (UTC)


Speedy deletion of 11th and 7th millennium BC[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on 11th and 7th millennium BC requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

December 2007[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not remove speedy deletion tags from pages that you have created yourself, as you did with 11th and 7th millennium BC. If you do not believe the page should be deleted, then please place {{hangon}} on the page (please do not remove any existing speedy deletion tag) and make your case on the page's talk page. Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you. KingNewbs (talk) 17:26, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Original research[edit]

Please be aware of Wikipedia's policy against original research. This is not the appropriate venue for posting your own theories. I've proposed 11th and 7th millennium BC for deletion in five days on that basis; but if you agree that the page is inappropriate for Wikipedia, please put {{db-author}} on top so it can be deleted faster than that. Thanks! —Angr If you've written a quality article... 17:31, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Jalowka[edit]

There are five Polish villages with that name, please see Jałówka. There was never a town with that name. There is another village named Narewka. It is the site of the administrative unit, Gmina Narewka, but none of the five Jałówka villages are in it. All are in the same geographical region, Podlasie Voivodeship. We need to move your article (Jalowka) to the appropriate location - either one of the Jałowka villages of the Narewka one, once we can figure one which one are we talking about.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 02:50, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Polish POW's in the Soviet captivity[edit]

This article needs a major rewrite. It reads currently as an unreferenced essay. Will you work on it in the next few days? We could usefy it for you. If not, it will be deleted (I'd like to merge some content to Camps for Russian prisoners and internees in Poland (1919–1924) but unreferenced content is not very helpful). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 22:45, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Pedros Cup[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Pedros Cup, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Unreferenced, no claims of notability, it is even unclear what kind of an event this was?

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 22:48, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Polish POW's in the Soviet captivity has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Content fork of an existing article: Polish prisoners and internees in Soviet Union and Lithuania (1919–1921).

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the other article. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Illythr (talk) 00:15, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

May 2010[edit]

Information.svg Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia! I noticed that you recently added commentary to an article, Battle of the Bzura. While Wikipedia welcomes editors' opinions on an article and how it could be changed, these comments are more appropriate for the article's accompanying talk page. If you post your comments there, other editors working on the same article will notice and respond to them and your comments will not disrupt the flow of the article. However, keep in mind that even on the talk page of an article, you should limit your discussion to improving the article. Article talk pages are not the place to discuss opinions of the subject of articles nor are such pages a forum. Thank you. The section question was added (diff: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Battle_of_the_Bzura&action=historysubmit&diff=356632525&oldid=354787988). Not sure if it is supposed to be a part of the article. If so please revert my edits and try to incorporate that section into the article. Thank you. Yamaka122 ...:) 02:38, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Battle of Janow[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Battle of Janow requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. TYelliot | Talk | Contribs 14:34, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:RobertKmyself.jpg. You don't seem to have said where the image came from, who created it, or what the copyright status is.

License tagging for File:Robertkolakowski.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Robertkolakowski.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 08:06, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks again! --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 08:06, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Mr Agboola Brown.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Mr Agboola Brown.jpg, which you've sourced to Claims it's on Polish Wikipedia but I couldn't find it; no evidence the pic is PD.. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Dianna (talk) 04:19, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on 11th and 7th millennium BC requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Hi: I've reverted your addition because you did not provide a source. Please find one so that it can be readded. Yngvadottir (talk) 13:58, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

I've reverted you again because we don't cite Wikipedia - ourselves - as a source. You've been around for several years, you must know this. Find a book or newspaper to cite saying that one or both of those are in effect "national sports" in Poland, and find a source about the third one being proposed as a national sport. Sources don't have to be in English, but they do have to be reliable and independent. Yngvadottir (talk) 15:46, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
