Delete reasons for talk pages: http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown

    * Wpis nie związany w żaden sposób z treścią hasła (it is not abount content of article)
    * Szablon Bez infoboksu – wstawiony (lack of infobox - done)
    * Szablon Wikiprojekt info - Wikiproject info
    * Strona dyskusji to nie forum - this is not a forum
    * Sprawa załatwiona / zbędna dyskusja - done (problem solved)
    * Dyskusja bez artykułu - talk page without article
    * Dyskusja przeniesiona - moved
    * Odpowiedziano na stronie dyskusji użytkownika - an answer is on the user talk page
    * Opis użycia szablonu przeniesiono na stronę dokumentacji - documentation of template moved

Delete log:



Of course pages with big discussions are not deleted. There are deleted rather simply suggestions: "you have an error with birth date", "I don't like this person",  "This page need infobox" etc. So, quality is poor because talk pages are cleaning and there is used specific link for notify errors in sidebar. Yes, strange :)
