Hello Michael --
this file is supposed to show Hans Talhoffer, the man, I take it. In this case, you have mis-cropped it. In the old version, it shows Talhoffer on the left, and the guy on the right is just some kind of banner-bearer. You then changed it to this, which I believe does indeed also show Talhoffer. But then last October you changed it to the current version, which only shows one hand and one foot of Talhoffer on the left margin :)
If you do not mind, I can change it back to something that does indeed show Talhoffer as he depicted himself (I think there are a number of other instances where he is shown, always with the characteristic curly hair and longish nose). Regards, --Dieter Bachmann 07:25, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
- Yeah, I seem to change it every time I update the article. However, I'm not sure why you think the current image is not Talhoffer--he's wearing the Lion of St. Mark as a pendant, he looks like a fencing master in his late 40s, and is holding a banner with his name on it. He also has the same large nose. I assume that it's an image of him instructing someone in sword and buckler.
- If that's an error, I can certainly swap it out for the self-portrait on 136v of the Codex Icon 394a. However, until we get the imaging engine back online, no new images that we post will be visible.
- By the way, I appreciate the work you've been doing on the Hugues Wittenwiller page. In the next few days I'm going to go in and tinker with some of it to match Wiktenauer conventions (as far as possible since the tables aren't rendering properly at the moment), but don't let that stop you from continuing.

- ok, personally I am sure Talhoffer is the guy with sword and buckler on the left, but of course I cannot prove it.
- more importantly, please note my reply at Talk:Codex Ringeck (MS Dresd.C.487). If a consensus emerges for this, so be it, but until it does, it would be wise to be conservative with excessively accurate claims ("1504-1519"), especially as dating-by-watermark is more or less a discipline of the black arts. --Dieter Bachmann 14:37, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Pulling from Wikipedia mains
Hey Michael, what are your thoughts on just pulling entire Wikipedia pages into Wiktenauer. Specifically Oakeshott. The Main Wikipedia page in him seems pretty legit. Or would you rather we just build a Wiktenauer-specific page for him and similar figures.... (Tim Kaufman 11:32, 24 November 2013)
- That's probably fine. We stole a bunch of Wikipedia articles when we were just starting out (and now that our articles are generally better, occasionally I go back and add the improved versions back to the source articles). ~ Michael Chidester (Contact) 18:57, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
Gerard Thibault and Academie de l'Espee
I seem to be having trouble modifying the page. I tried to change the information on J.M. Greer's translation because he re-issued a new version of his translation in 2017, but it doesn't show up.
More to the point, I would like to upload a transcription and my translation of the introduction and first 10 chapters, but I am having trouble figuring out what the procedure is. I have gone through the help sections of the Wiki, but what I really need is a tutorial, or a set of instructions so my edit looks like the other sections.
- Hi Bruce. I don't see what specifically you're trying to do with the bibliography. Please provide details and I'm happy to help. Chees
Hi, Michael. Sorry for the long break. As far as the bibliography, the original publisher is no longer in business, so Mr. Greer got another publisher to re-publish his book. That was all. The way you changed it is fine. Anyone who wants to buy his book can find it.
At this moment, I've hit a problem: the text I've entered is apparently too long to be on a single page. Right now I'm getting a database error when I try to upload the entire text and plates XIIII and XV don't show up.
I've been playing around with the code the idea being to make a new page for each plate, presented as a simple wiki table under the 'Treatise' section on the page for Gérard_Thibault_d'Anvers. I think I've seen other pages do the same, is that acceptable? Of so, then that table could be added to the page on the text itself Academie de l'Espée (Gérard Thibault d'Anvers) under the contents section.
- This page is still pretty small and it doesn't seem to be even close to hitting the caps on any size metrics. Are you sure the wiki wasn't just having some problems at the time? Have you tried doing the edut again since then?
- Hi, Michael
- I can preview the page and the two added plates XIIII and XV are there, but when I try to save, I'm still getting "Database Error". There is no other information than the suggestion it may be a bug in the software. I'll check my html code when I have time, just to see if it is something there.
Hello. I have been trying to change the name of the manuscript Arte de Esgrima by Godinho, because it appears as "Do arte de esgrima”. I have confronted original and sucesive bibliographical references and it is ever called "Arte de Esgrima”. I changed it on several places but I am unable to change the main heading and index and I wan't to to cause a mess. Thank you
