Description Grzegorz P 2007-08-18 13:50:51 UTC
Currently on the "Wikipedia has a problem page" in Polish there is a message "problem powinien zostać usunięty w przeciągu paru minut" it should be "problem powinien zostać usunięty w ciągu paru minut" or "problem powinien zostać usunięty w kilka minut". The phrase "w przeciągu" is often but incorrectly used in Polish.

Proof: Compare google hits when entering "w ciągu paru minut" and "w przeciągu paru minut" into Google search box.

The text of the complaint filled on the Polish Wikipedia's "Report a mistake" (Wikipedia:Zgłoś Błąd)page (In Polish): "W komunikacie o błędzie serwera można przeczytać: "problem powinien zostać usunięty w przeciągu paru minut"... Nie jestem polonistą, ale mój wykładowca, przez niektórych uważany za autorytet "poprawnościowy", twierdzi że w przeciągu można jedynie nabawić się kataru, a problem można usunąć w ciągu jakiegoś czasu.

Can you narrow it down to one replacement text instead of two? Not speaking Polish, I don't know which to pick. :)
Comment 2 Grzegorz P 2007-08-20 19:56:36 UTC
I consulted picking one option on the IRC channel of Polish wikipedia. No option gained a majority, my personal favorite is "problem powinien zostać usunięty w ciągu paru minut".
