Henryk Floyar-Rajchman[edit]

Thanks for creating this article. Here are my suggestions for the future articles you create:

If you do add those elements, the article will be eligible for Wikipedia:Did You Know ~6h display on the main page, with an average readership of 10,000+. Please let me know if you have any questions, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:47, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Polish Veterans of World War II (United States)[edit]

Interesting article. Can you provide some reliable sources so we could remove the notability warning tag? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:44, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

A request[edit]

As I am reviewing and copyediting your articles, please check my edits and try to incorporate them into your future entries. In particular, you seem to habitually forget about categorizing your articles. This is quite simple, particularly when using the Wikipedia:HotCat gadget. See the Wikipedia:Categories for more information. Similarly, please add WikiProject Assessment pages to the talk. You can simply copy the ones I used at Talk:Andrzej Beck and use them for most of your new articles, and it seems that you could just copy most of the categories too. Thanks! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:31, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for looking into the issues I raised. I very much appreciate the excellent work you are doing, so please don't hesitate to ask me or other members of WT:POLAND for help. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:29, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Photos of history of Polonia in the US[edit]

I've recently created The Polish Peasant in Europe and America, and I wanted to illustrate this. Unfortunately, in commons:Category:Polonia in the United States it doesn't appear we have any pictures of Znaniecki, the book, or even Polish immigrants from the turn of the century! Perhaps I was looking in the wrong place, but if not, perhaps you can find some useful images to upload to Commons and add to the article I created (which will be featured on the front page in a few days as a WP:DYK)? PS. I am expanding article on Florian Znaniecki to a GA, and any help with this would be appreciated. In particular, if you could obtain any media we could add to it, it would be great. We don't even have a photo of him... --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:44, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Would you happen to have access to the original 1918-1920 edition? Since it's pre-1923, we could take scan/photos of the covers and upload them to Wikipedia as free images. Also, if there are any images inside, we can take pictures of them as well. Since I am in Korea, NYC is a bit far for me, usually :> --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:57, 16 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia.

I noticed an article you worked on. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

This applies to infoboxes, too.

Please also watch the Caps. We tend to capitalise only when necessary in English.

Thanks, and my best wishes.

The Polish Empire: Geopolitical Concerns and Colonial Discourse, 1930-39[edit]

Dear Mr. Puchalski,

recently I have read of your study "The Polish Empire: Geopolitical Concerns and Colonial Discourse, 1930-39." in the Wikipedia article concerning the Maritime and Colonial League, which certainly contributes to the examination of an often unregarded episode of Polish history. Since I'm planning to write my B.A. thesis on the LMiK as an instrument of Sanacja authorities to promote societal corporatism in the 1930s and the transformation of the Maritime Policy between 1926 and 1930, I would like to observe all available studies on the topic. Hence, I would like to ask you whether your study is going to be published or if there might be any other way to obtain it, since I could not find any information about it on the internet besides a brief abstract in this journal: Of course, I would assure you of the proper use of your work in my thesis in line with academic convention, such as accurate citation etc. For further communication, I consign my email: I'm looking forward to your answer.

Yours sincerely, Sebastian Lotz
