From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hello and welcome to my user page! I am Midnightblueowl, a longstanding Wikipedia editor from Western Europe who has been active on the site since February 2006. I think that the importance of Wikipedia lies in the fact that it allows people from across the world to gain access to information with which they can make informed decisions about themselves and their futures. It allows people to learn about places, people, and ideas that they might otherwise never have encountered in their day-to-day existence, and thus can help build a more tolerant, pluralistic society. Fundamentally, I hope that a better educated world will be a better world, and that's why I edit Wikipedia.
Alongside reviewing other people's articles every now and again, I like to work on articles that I feel can be pulled up to GA and FA status with a little bit of love and tender care. In doing so, I've tended to focus on a few key themes: prominent world political and ideological figures; archaeology and archaeologists; beliefs in Western esotericism, magic, and witchcraft; LGBT issues; and European children's literature – an eclectic mix!
