Proposed deletion of new article, "Leszek Pietrzak"[edit]

On 24 April 2018, at the request of one of our editors, I translated the Polish Wikipedia article on Leszek Pietrzak and placed it in the English Wikipedia.

User:Icewhiz has now proposed it for deletion, at

I raise this matter in case anyone would care to comment on the proposal.

Thank you.

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:51, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Translation of source for Marienbad (video game) - the first Polish video game[edit]

Hi Wikiproject Poland,

Can we have a translation of the section of Bajty polskie that talks about the game "Marienbad"?

I see this has been addressed already. Kubanczyk (talk) 07:32, 4 September 2018 (UTC)


The victims were picked out by local Volksdeutsche with Polish citizenship for execution.

  • Is the citizenship important to be mentioned here?
  • There are obviously two POVs - the Nazis (I'm not sure about the BDR) considered the VDs to be German and cancelled any Polish citizenhip in September 1939 so there were no POlish citizens at that time. Poland expelled many VDs and cancelled Polish citizenship of the VD who run away to Germany. Do we know if the mentioned VDs didn't run away in 1945 and all were punished as Polish citizens?

Piotrkowska Street[edit]

Piotrkowska Street seems to be a machine translation (of pl:Ulica Piotrkowska w Łodzi?), it needs tagging and hatnotes.−−−− (talk) 02:12, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Question on Cross of Merit[edit]

Hi, I'm writing a biography of someone who has received Cross of Merit (Poland), supposedly, but I'm not entirely sure? Her webpage translates it as the Cavalier Cross of Merit but I don't see that in the previously linked Wikipedia article. Here is the PR page on her award. Thanks in advance. --Lightmatterchem (talk) 05:06, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
