Re[edit]

Debno is in former Brandenburg, but close to Pomerania. The authorities shifted the administrative borders around so you won't find the historical regions on the map (in East Germany, they did the same). You are right about the soil, Brandenburgian soil is famous for its bad quality and in Germany commonly known as "Streusandbüchse", which is an idiom you can roughly translate as "a tin filled with very fine sand". Maybe you find a proper Polish translation on the web. But I heard rumors that you can actually grow something on that soil anyway besides pine trees and heath.

Hi[edit]

I appreciate your effort to pursue NPOV on Wikipedia and if you need assistance in translation or gathering of sources feel free to ask me.

The source you are seeking[edit]

Is "Dorota Borowicz Mapy Narodowościowe Górnego Śląska od połowy XIX wieku do II Wojny Światowej". Page 31 and forth describe the process of Germanisation of Silesia till XX century.--Molobo (talk) 19:44, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Silesian Piasts[edit]

I've done some copyediting as you asked. Pozdrowienia,--Kotniski (talk) 11:02, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Anne of S.[edit]

Do not alter other people's talk, like you did here, changing "von" to "of".-- Matthead  Discuß   22:56, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

It was a technical mistake I wanted to copy the whole name but, by accident, I deleted it so I've put back the name that was next to it (I thought it was the right one). You can easily trace that looking at my later edtitions on that page. You schould also talk to that guy: 71.137.198.58, not to manipulate the data (he says none and there is 92 and 56!!!).

Re[edit]

From the title, your book is a compendium of Pomeranian knights (14th to 19th cts). The "Landesdirektor" was a chief bureaucrat of the provincial administrative apparatus in Prussian times. By then, "knight" was just a title, the knights were usually farmers. Regards Skäpperöd (talk) 09:56, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

WP:3RR[edit]

Please discuss, not revert. Use Talk:Silesian tribes. I am warning both parties that are warring. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 22:36, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland is now dividing our members into active, semi-active (have not edited a Poland-related article in more then three months or have 10 or less edits per month on average) and inactive (have not edited at all for three months or more). You occasionally edit Poland-related articles but have few edits in the past months; we are moving you to semi-active members category. Please consider participating in our project activities again in the future, we would love to work more closely with you again! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 19:08, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Re Emigration from PL[edit]

Good work. I will have another look later, but it already looks pretty good now. Skäpperöd (talk) 16:37, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for inviting me, but before you start I need to inform you about some technical problems with the article you might not be aware of. The article is in trouble ever since its existence. A merge was (is?) proposed, a deletion was (is?) proposed, and the most recent discussion is at Talk:Expulsion of Germans after World War II#Somebody please put a stop to this insanity.... I agree with user:Llewelyn MT that the article somehow does not properly fit into the hierarchy, and proposed the topic be covered in German minority in Poland. I agree with both Llewelyn MT and you that the article as it is now is in bad shape.

So before you (we) put any effort in improving it, I think we should start a thread at the article's talk page, invite Llewelyn MT and see who else has a look, and determine if this article should be kept or where else the information should go. Sound good? Skäpperöd (talk) 15:39, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Question[edit]

You wrote: and replace them with those written by H. Weczerka. To the record - he is not known outside Germany actually and does not use the newest sources created after Silesia returned to Poland in 1945.

Do you know more about this person? His books are often at odds with official history of Polish cities, and used on Wiki, can you tell me more about him, give some sources? --MyMoloboaccount (talk) 15:01, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 21[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited History of Silesia, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Anna of Austria (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • January 2014 • Issue II[edit]

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • January 2014 • Issue II
For our freedom and yours

Welcome to the second issue of WikiProject Poland newsletter, the Monitor (named after the first Polish newspaper).

Our Project has been operational since 1 June, 2005, and also serves as the Poland-related Wikipedia notice board. I highly recommend watchlisting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland page, so you can be aware of the ongoing discussions. We hope you will join us in them, if you haven't done so already! Unlike many other WikiProjects, we are quite active; we get close to a hundred discussion threads each year and we do a pretty good job at answering all issues raised. Last year we were featured in the Signpost, and our interviewer was amazed at our activity. In the end, however, even as active as we are, we are just a tiny group - you can easily become one of our core members!

In addition to a lively encyclopedic, Poland-related, English-language discussion forum, we have numerous useful tools that can be of use to you - and that you could help us maintain and develop:

  • we have an active assessment department. As of now, our project has tagged almost 83,000 pages as Poland-related - that's an improvement of over 3,000 new pages since the last newsletter. Out of which 30 still need a quality assessment, and 2,000, importance assessment. We have done a lot to clear the backlog here (3 years ago those numbers were 1,500 and 20,000, respectively). Can you help assess a few pages?
    • assessing articles is as easy as filling in the class= and importance= parameters on the talk page in the {{WPPOLAND|class=|importance=}} template. See here for a how-to guide.
  • once an article has an assessment template, it will appear in our article alerts and news feed, which provides information on which Poland-related articles are considered for deletion, move, or are undergoing a Good or Featured review. Watchlisting that feed, in addition to watchlisting our project's main page, is a good way to make sure you stay up to date on most Poland-related discussions.
  • you can also see detailed deletion discussions at Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Poland (which is a good place to watchlist if you just want to stay up to date on possible deletions of Poland-related content)
  • we have also begun B-class quality reviews on our talk page, and if our activity increases, hopefully we will be able to institute our own A-class quality reviews. As of now, we have about 500 C-class articles in need of a B-class review. If you'd like to help with them, instructions for doing B-class reviews are to be found in point 10 of our assessment FAQ. In addition to this automated list, you are also encouraged to help review articles from our B-class reviews requested list found here.
  • also, those articles will be included in our cleanup listing, which allows us to see which top-importance articles are in need for attention, and so on. We have tens of thousands articles in need of cleanup there, so if you ever need something to do, just look at this gigantic list. (I am currently reviewing the articles tagged with notability, either proving them notable or nominating for deletion; there are still several dozens left if you want to help!).
  • did you know that newly created Poland-related articles are listed here. They need to be reviewed, often cleaned-up, occasionally nominated for deletion, and their creators may need to be welcomed and invited to our project if they show promise as new authors of Poland-related content.
  • we are maintaining a Portal:Poland
  • automated Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland/Popular pages lists the most popular Poland-related pages from the previous month(s)
  • Breaking news: we are looking for a Wikipedian in Residence for the New York City area. See Wikipedia:GLAM/Józef Piłsudski Institute of America for details.

This is not all; on our page you can find a list of useful templates (including userboxes), awards and other tools!


With all that said, how about you join our discussions at WT:POLAND? Surely, there must be something you could help others with, or perhaps you are in need of assistance yourself?

It took me three years to finish this issue. Feel free to help out getting the next one before 2017 by being more active in WikiProject management :)
