Hi, I noticed you're doing quite a lot of work creating biographical articles - good work! You might consider adding your articles to categories as you create them - this helps with organising Wikipedia. I've already added your Lorenz von Bibra article to a few categories, but you would be better placed to know what ones are the most appropriate. You can find a full list of categories here, and if you want more info about using them, you can find it here. Cheers! Martin 04:11, 16 October 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the helpful suggestion.

License tagging for Image:Scherenberg.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Scherenberg.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 06:06, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Image placing[edit]

Ciao! Don't add image on left when there's a bulleting (i.e. list), otherwise it'd be hindered and the bullets will disappear (I'm referring to Würzburg). But thanks for good work and keep staying here. Bye. --Attilios 01:46, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Reply to your question at Talk:Wilhelm von Bibra[edit]

It wasn't just the images; all of the text was also copied from another web site. The instructions, I see, are above for what to do if that text has been licensed by its owner under the GFDL. -FisherQueen (Talk) 20:12, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Reply to reply[edit]

The linked site where you believe (incorectly) that all of the text has been copied from, now has a note clarifying the lack of copyright issues.--CSvBibra 21:45, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Georg Friedrich Sartorius[edit]

Hi CS, thanks for the marvellous pictures on Georg Friedrich Sartorius, but sorry, on commons you have to give some info on the whereabouts. If not, they certainly will be deleted very fast. What a waste...--Kresspahl 21:25, 20 September 2007 (UTC) I added some sourcing material to both images.--CSvBibra 22:31, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Bibra in WA[edit]

I presume from your User page that your resident in the US. I noticed your interest in the Bibra family and Bibra Lake in WA. For Western Australian editors our friend Henrietta who searches the state library collections for all kinds of useful information, maybe a resource that you hadnt heard about. I did a basic search on "Bibra" and the results can be found here. If your in need of photographs from the area drop me a note or if I can be of any assistance just ask.

Bibra biographies and request for the family Sparneck[edit]

Hello CSvBibra, this morning i have discovered your work in English and I was very pleased to find so many pictures to illustrate the German article. I am planning to translate your biographies from the prince-bishops, but besides I am very busy at the moment - I will do it the next weeks. Perhaps you could help me with my main theme: I was born in Sparneck and the knights of Sparneck were directly related with the family Bibra, that is why I am especially searching for coat of arms from the Sparneck at Bibras monuments and I am interested in the further context of that relation. It is Johann (or Hans) Christoph Erdmann, who married Domicilla Marie Christine von Bibra on 20.06.1706. Their children were the last carrier of the name Sparneck (ended 1744). They owned Trausnitz and Reuth in the Oberpfalz. Perhaps you will take a look at my article "Sparneck (Adelsgeschlecht)" in the German wikipedia, here you can find links and with Trausnitz another impressive castle. I also recommand "Liste fränkischer Rittergeschlechter". I am trying to underline the community of the franconian knights including their families and bulding bridges over (gone) borders to Thüringen and the Tschechei. With the end of the cold war and the bitterness of WW2 now history is in my eyes a signal to remember togetherness and to create neighbourhood. Archives and researchers are slowly putting their knowledge together. More over the communism didnt like nobility. Documents about Sparneck are spret from Dresden to Prag. I tried to add your picture of the coat of arms at St. Leo church in this Bibra categorie, but I am not sure how to add the categorie after the upload. If you have any comments, please use the discussion of my German account [1]. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.56.98.17 (talk) 20:55, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello CSvBibra, please do not hesitate to upload a picture of the grave in Irmelshause or send it to me per email. Every new trace would be a sensation for me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.245.226.186 (talk) 06:26, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Hello CSvBibra, meanwhile I translated 3 Bibra articles and 1 Scherenberg article. Are there any further articles of franconian nobility without a corresponding article in German? Because of the Wikilinks I placed on other sites I expect all these articles growing the next time (with some patience). I would be glad hearing from you for the Sparnecker Wappen. I will close the gap between the two Bibras with an article about "Konrad II. von Thüngen". I have only a few information, but it is a beginning.

Liste fränkischer Rittergeschlechter[edit]

Hello CSvBibra, in the German wikipedia is a nomination for "Liste fränkischer Rittergeschlechter" as a worth reading list. I hope you support this with a positive vote. You find a link at the end of "Liste fränkischer Rittergeschlechter". I think this is for making the theme more popular. Peter Braun 84.56.123.143 (talk) 14:36, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello Peter, the article referenced has greatly improved in recent days and I am excited about all the work you have done on it. I particularly like the new table. Unfortunately, I am a little shy about contributing to a discussion in German because of my inadequate German skills. Images and photos in German, I can handle. Paragraphs, that is another story.--CSvBibra (talk) 22:42, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Stanford Co-op[edit]

I saw that you have a connection to Stanford University and was hoping that you (or someone you know) might have some information to add to the Chi Theta Chi article. I wanted to give it a chance before proposing it for deletion. Do you have any sources for it? —ScouterSig 21:40, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

The only information I have to add is that in from about 1980(or before)to sometime in the 90's or even later, they had a speed limit sign in the upstairs window which was changed from "Speed 55" to "Speed $5". This seems like a strange thing but the altered sign was the defining characteristic of the house for years which stood out whenever one drove by on Campus Drive.--CSvBibra 23:35, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Jobst Bernhard von Aufsees[edit]

Hello again! Can you do something about Jobst Bernhard von Aufsees. I have translated this stub and added some stuff from German articles, but I think there are still missing links to this article. My last translation was Oskar, Freiherr von Redwitz and I discovered even a Swedish article. If you now any further arcticles, that might be interesting for me to translate, please let me know.

Thanks[edit]

.. for the nice images at Astheim Charterhouse - I see that you took the photos as well! (I meant also to thank you a long time ago for the plan and extra information about Würzburg Cathedral). About the v Bibra cat at Astheim, I feel churlish for taking it off, but am not sure that the family connection is strong enough to justify it, unlike the Schwarzenberg connection.

Guttenberg[edit]

I undid this edit because it repeated text ("in his hometown, Guttenberg is by courtesy styled Baron (Herr Baron, "My Lord Baron") and known as simply "Herr Baron"). Also, Herr Baron is the form one would use when addressing him directly (by tradition), while "Der Baron" (The Baron) is a term used (at least in Guttenberg, Bavaria) when referring to him in third person.

Jeane Dixon birth date/year[edit]

Hi would you please take a look at the Jeane Dixon article. Someone change the year from 1904 back to 1918 claiming that it is original research. I wish the editor left a comment on the talk page. I feel she was born in 1901 not 1918. Thanks-RFD (talk) 19:15, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

I put another comment in the discussion. I hope this helps. Let me know if more is needed.--CSvBibra (talk) 23:14, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Cressy, Tasmania[edit]

Information.svg Hello, and thank you for removing vandalism from Cressy, Tasmania. This is much appreciated, but unfortunately your repair was not successful in restoring the article to its pre-vandalised state. For future reference, it is better to deal with vandalism by checking the article's page history to determine how it appeared before it was vandalised. You can then restore the whole article, or the relevant part of it, to an appropriate earlier version. If you simply delete the visible vandalism then any content removed or overwritten by the vandal is lost. See How to deal with vandalism for details. Thank you.

Ritter vom güldenen Sporn / equites aurati[edit]

Hallo Kresspahl, Tomkater und CSvBibra,

Auf der Diskussionsseite des Artikels Ritter vom güldenen Sporn (equites aurati) habe ich dargelegt, warum ich den Artikel für problematisch halte: equites aurati sind kein erklärungsbedürftiges, irgendwie neues Phänomen des Spätmittelalters und der Frühen Neuzeit, sondern "eques auratus" ist schlicht ein von Humanisten geprägter lateinischer Ausdruck für "(zum Ritter geschlagener) Ritter".

Es reicht völlig, "eques auratus" als lateinische Entsprechung von Ritter ebendort anzugeben, was ich eben mal probeweise getan habe.

Kann ich Euch als Hauptautoren für eine Löschung des Artikels gewinnen?

Grüsse Th. Schmid (talk) 18:42, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

My German is not good enough for full discussion in German on the German Wikipedia discussion page. In the case of English page which I have done extensive work, we had the problem of the term being used in several contexts: HRE & Middle Ages, later in the Catholic Church and later Great Britain. The topic is divided on between Knight of the Golden Spur (HRE) and Order of the Golden Spur. As far as the related terms “Eques auratus” , “Eques aureus”, “Equites aurati”, “Miles auratus” and “Eques auratus Sancti Romani Imperii “: they are handled imperfectly with redirets.--CSvBibra (talk) 22:51, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

My understanding is that "eques auratus" is Neo-Latin, coined by humanists around the middle of the 15th century to replace standard Middle-Latin "miles" for "knight", because they recognized that in classical Latin "miles" meant "foot-soldier" (cf. Lorenz Böninger, Die Ritterwürde in Mittelitalien zwischen Mittelalter und Früher Neuzeit, Berlin 1995, especially pp. 172, 231f.). These humanists seem also to have recognized that the ancient "eques" wasn't exactly a "knight", so they added "auratus", referring to the knightly privilege of gilded equipment / wearing a gold chain. "Eques auratus" then became the standard term for "a knight (who was actually knighted not just born into a knightly family)". So, there was no special order of equites aurati - anyone knighted by a sovereign (including the Pope), or by an imperial/papal count palatine, or by being admitted to a knightly order was an eques auratus. At some later point confusion about the added "auratus" seems to have arisen (possibly because classical Latin "eques" alone was more and more used for "knight") which then led to the actual establishment of the papal Order of the Golden Spur. Therefore, equites aurati aren't some new phenomenon, they are just knights. Th. Schmid (talk) 21:54, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks greatly.--CSvBibra (talk) 22:44, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
