Additional information: Please restore the correct name of this wayspot to match the statue's name at its base "Świętopełk Wielki" or "Świętopełk II Wielki" as this is a monument https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plik:Monument_of_Swietopelk_II_the_Great_in_Szeroka_Street_in_Gda%C5%84sk.jpg of the second pomeranian duke with this name, see Świętopełk II Wielki – Wikipedia, wolna encyklopedia

Current name "Ksążã Kaszëbstwa Swiãtopôlk II Wiôldżi (pl Książę Kraju Kaszubskiego Świętopełk II Wielki)" is in a language which is not understood by vast majority of players in Poland as well as by tourists. Also current name contains false statement claiming that this is a monument of a duke of "Kashubian country" (in Polish Książę Kraju Kaszubskiego). "Kashubian country" if anything, it is and always was just a geographical or cultural area, but never existed as a country and never had any rulers or monarchs. Please see https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomorze_Gda%C5%84skie to confirm this if necessary.

    Thanks for the appeal, @KotOtaki-PGO. Based on the evidence provided, we’ve made necessary changes to the title of the Wayspot.

    ndeed, in the past there were two Kashubian principalities: Gdańsk Pomerania and Szczecin Pomerania. Świętopełk II Wiôldzi was the ruler of one of these Kashubian principalities and is considered one of the most important rulers in the history of Kashubia.

    Before the changes were made, the wayspot had a Kashubian name and a Polish description, making it understandable for local Kashubian and Polish players. Additionally, this name was accepted by the local community through voting on the Wayfarer forum. Therefore, it is important to investigate the submission for potential hate speech or violation of the rights of the local Kashubian minority. Please take note of this situation and consider restoring the Kashubian-Polish name.

    The idea of easy-to-understand Wayspot names was destroyed in Gdansk under the pretext of minorities. I demand the restoration of the correct and valid official names. It is just as well that those responsible for this destruction can rename them with random characters. There will be no difference. "Nncbhduw Hgiienr Nd Oaweh" looks the same to me as these crappy invented names now.
