More articles for deletion?[edit]

Following on from my request above, I've come across more articles that have no equivalent on the PL wikipedia. These are all from the Greater Poland voivodeship:

If anyone has any reliable source(s), or related articles on the PL wikipedia, could you please advise? Pinging @Piotrus, @Phil Bridger, @Stok because of your help at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Stary Cykarzew POM. Kiwipete (talk) 20:06, 4 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks, @GizzyCatBella, yes I was aware of Kotniski's withdrawal from Wikipedia, sadly. Kiwipete (talk) 20:29, 4 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Stok Delete? Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:47, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Piotrus I would delete all of them, but those names that existed (istniała) can not be deleted. Stok (talk) 08:08, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Stok - can you please explain why they "can not be deleted"? Unlike all other Greater Poland voivodeship towns/villages, these ones have no coordinates and no equivalent PL wikipedia article. Kiwipete (talk) 04:18, 28 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Kiwipete PRNG is an official list of places in Poland, it contains official and unofficial names. If I wrote not in PRNG, then this name is not in this list and I recommend deleting the article. In the PRNG, the "remarks" column lists the abolished names. For example, "Jeligowo" this name existed, but was abolished in 2007 and incorporated into the village of Stary Białcz. I recommend deleting the article and placing the information in the article Stary Białcz. Stok (talk) 06:54, 28 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm add more:

The corresponding articles were on pl:, they were deleted: in 2014 (pl:Wikipedia:Poczekalnia/Załatwione artykuły (sierpień 2014/2)#Wsie_cz._1. The footnote indicating that they are in TERYT is false. Stok (talk) 08:55, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Deleted on pl: (pl:Wikipedia:Poczekalnia/Załatwione artykuły (sierpień 2014/2)#Wsie_cz._2). Stok (talk) 09:28, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I wonder if they can be speedied? Errr. Ping random admin @Liz :) Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:37, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Here is another:

No, Chrapice exist, in PRNG: Chrapice, urzędowa, część wsi, Skąpe, 0842176, TERYT (SIMC), 0842182 53°14'13" 18°36'58". It is part of Skąpe, Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship, text no longer existent village is wrong. Stok (talk) 22:25, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What I'm looking for, in particular, are geographic coordinates so that I can display a map in the article. There are no such coordinates in either the English or Polish wikipedia articles. If the text "no longer existent village" is incorrect, could you please update the article? But if also, as you say, it is part of Skąpe, itself a village, is there any justification for the article's existence? In the meantime, I'll just remove its reference from the Gmina Papowo Biskupie template. Kiwipete (talk) 22:38, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Kiwipete According to pl wiki article, Chrapice was a village that eventually became part of another village. It probably meets Wikipedia:Notability (geographic features) per the source Stok cited, it is/was "Legally recognized, populated" (GEOLAND #1).

Grabowski and Klein on 25 English Wikipedia articles[edit]

The discussion was closed elsewhere but I was reminded that it's essential to leave a notice here. :) There's a new article by Grabowski and Klein about certain content disputes in 25 articles related to Poland and the Holocaust. Nemo 17:03, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is an ongoing discussion here Marcelus (talk) 18:11, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Most prominent historians of Poland[edit]

Who would you classify as such? Norman Davies is a given. Anyone else, if you were to make a "Top 10"? (Also such a list could differ if we consider scholars publishing in English and Polish, I guess). Bonus points for telling me who you'd consider as "most prominent historians of Polish military history". TIA! Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:52, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I wouldn't put Davies in my top 10, maybe not even in top 100 :) Marcelus (talk) 09:17, 23 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
