Administrative changes in Poland in 2021Edit

Good day, fellow Project colleagues. I am here with some news on the administrative changes in Poland, set to be effective on 1 January 2021. The changes are moreless in the spirit of what's happening nearly every year on 1 January. It is a bit longer, sorry for that.

Some of the changes in a nutshell:

  • Probably the most prominent change is the renaming of Jelenia Góra County to Karkonosze County.
    • The article will have to be moved, as well as the corresponding templates. Links and all mentions to Jelenia Góra County should be revised to Karkonosze County throughout hundreds of articles. The latter sounds like a job for a bot.
  • Ten (10) villages will be elevated to town status - Kamieniec Ząbkowicki, Goraj, Kamionka, Sochocin, Wiskitki, Solec nad Wisłą, Dubiecko, Wodzisław, Budzyń and Koźminek. This will bring the total number of towns in Poland to 954.
    • All the articles mentioned above should be edited to reflect the fact. Changes will have to be made also to related templates and articles.
    • We should make sure that the subcategories of the Category:Cities and towns in Poland contains 954 articles per above.
  • Gmina Sitkówka-Nowiny will be renamed to Gmina Nowiny.
    • The article will have to be moved, as well as the corresponding templates. All links and mentions should be revised to Gmina Nowiny.
  • Gmina Bodzanów will change its administrative seat to Chodkowo.
    • The gmina article and template should be revised, as well as the articles of Bodzanów and Chodkowo.
  • Pogwizdów Nowy will cease to be an independent village, and will be incorporated to Rzeszów.
    • The article should be deleted from the relevant gmina article and template. It should be also edited to reflect the change.
  • Styków will cease to be an independent village, and will be incorporated to Głogów Małopolski.
    • The article should be deleted from the relevant gmina article and template. It should be also edited to reflect the change.


As you can see, it's quite a lot of work. I will try to work on that in January piece by piece. Is anyone interested to help out with this mini-project?

Thank you and Wszystkiego Dobrego w Nowym Roku! - Darwinek (talk) 01:46, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Jolanta FedakEdit

Hi there, the biography on Jolanta Fedak has been nominated to appear on the main page of English WP in the "recent deaths" section, however it would benefit from some more expansion. If anyone here is able to look over the Polish-language sources and add any additional detail to the article, that would be appreciated! Thanks and Happy New Year!

Problematic editing at Law and Justice articleEdit

‎Small Bayonet is making many changes there that do not correspond to reliable sources, as I noted on User_talk:Small_Bayonet; they are removing the characterization as nationalist based on their own WP:OR despite the fact that many sources describe the party this way, and inserting a left-wing characterization that is not supported by most sources. (t · c) buidhe 10:43, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

what? I gave many, many sources that confirm the fact, that economically PiS is centro-leftist. It's obvious fact. They are socially right wing, but economically - centre-left. Also - PiS isn't nationalist, party itself has shown its antinationalist nature, Kaczyński founded his party AGAINST NATIONALISTS. Also, most of the proffessional sources doesn't admit, that PiS is nationalist, I do not care about Guardian or Washington Post, beacause authors have clearly no knowledge about it, and are calling PiS nationalist only beacause they have SOME POLICIES nationalist. They are not nationalist as a whole, the nationalist element split from the party in 2012, forming Solidarna Polska. The party itself is a succesor of Sanacja., Party is associated with sionist organizations and supports integration within NATO. Most of the PROFFESSIONAL sources say, that even though PiS have some nationalist policies, it isn't nationalist as a whole. Small Bayonet 12:11, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Finishing an article for a DYKEdit

If anyone would be interested in getting a nice DYK, due to reasons, I am stopping my work on a half-finished draft at Ćmielów Porcelain Factory. I am sure that you could use a source like this to expand the article to meet the DYK size requirements. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 00:53, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

I could try my hand, if it's completable before Friday, 5 February, when I will be off for a couple of days.
Nihil novi (talk) 07:59, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Nihil novi, Thanks! It shouldn't be too hard. In fact, the current article is already at 259 words, which makes it not a stub, but a bit more would be good to do justice to the article. On the subjects of DYKs in general, here's a way to make the previously cumbersome procedure very easy. First, in your Preferencs>Gadgets, enable the 'Install scripts without having to edit JavaScript files' option. Then grab this script: User:SD0001/DYK-helper. Now you can nominate a DYK from the pull-down menu in any article (the menu is under the 'more' heading, to the right of the watchlist star). Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:24, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Are all those manipulations carried out before editing the article – or after editing and before submitting to DYK?
Nihil novi (talk) 09:22, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Nihil novi, Installing the scripts is a one-time action you should take before submitting it to a DYK (assuming you want to use said tools for the submission, you can also to it the 'old school' way as described at WP:DYKN).

Maurycy Cyril TrybuslkiEdit

Greetings! I recently submitted for review a page about Professor Maurycy Trybuslki, a polish academic and founder of the Związek Kynologiczny w Polsce. I'd appreciate if anyone would be interested in reading it, I'm not a native english speaker so my main concern is the writing style: (Draft:Maurycy Trybulski). Thank you, Artafinde (talk) 13:37, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Artafinde, Thank you. If nobody does it sooner, please ping me in March and I'll review it then. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 01:00, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
Thank you, I've seen that Lembit_Staan has been so kind to edit and review it. Thank you very much. Artafinde (talk) 14:52, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
