Introduction Section[change source]

I made few changes to the introduction section in Simple English Wikipedia. I hope that you will like it. I think that Poland's Introduction section in Simple English Wikipedia also looks good now. --Thomaspca 05:37, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Do you have any questions about the Poland's introduction section. --Thomaspca 05:46, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

I love this. Poland is a country! In Europe.

Cracow wasn't the fist capital of Poland. It was Gniezno

Solidarnosc[change source]

Wasn't a political party, it was independent trade union and between these two are big difference.

  • You're right, but in years 1997 - 2001 in Sejm was political party coalition called AWS - Akcja Wyborcza Solidarność (Solidarity Electoral Action).San.k7 (talk) 11:11, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Infobox[change source]

Maybe someone who can do that could change information about Poland from present to an infobox (see United Kingdom or USA). Papapolak (talk) 12:31, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

People's Republic of Poland[change source]

People Republic of Poland (sic) can be merged here. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I am about the subject can handle that. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:18, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Two different countries. Should not be moved. Just like you would not merge Russia and the Soviet Union. -DJSasso (talk) 20:21, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
For the record, I see your point, but don't agree. "Soviet Union" was always more than Russia. Separate question if I would merge articles on the Soviet-era RSFSR and the modern Russian Federation. Really, my feeling was that there wasn't enough in the article Polish People's Republic to warrant an own-article, vs. its being incorporated into the history section of this article. But I don't care enough to argue the point. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:00, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
DJSasso is right, believe me. I used to live in PRL. It was a satellite state of the Soviet Union, governed by one party: "PZPR". No democracy, no free elections, no major private business, widespread censorship but no unemployment. (talk) 02:54, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
