I'm a student interested in all history, but particularly focused on the Belgian variety in the 19th-20th centuries. My contributions to Wikipedia tend to be linked to my area of interest, but I also stray into other topics from time-to-time, though there tends to be some method in them somewhere.

Here is a list of articles that I've started or been significantly involved in. Also, feel free to browse my library for references needed in Belgian history articles.

I have created a subproject of WP:MILHIST dedicated to Belgian military history and am always looking to recruit more users!

Just a message of appreciation for improving the article on the Royal Question to GA status! Best, Midnightblueowl, 22 July 2016

I hereby award this barnstar for your extensive rework of the Royal Question, an important article that (as I have argued before) has needed revision for some time.  Very good work! Elphion, 29 December 2015 This is in recognition of your fine addition of an article for Emile Janssens, last commander of the Force publique. Keep up the good work!! Buckshot06, 29 September 2013 For your tireless efforts concerning the Belgian articles on Wikipedia and your contributions as a whole! Mathijsvs, 7 October 2013 I see I'm not the first to think of this. You've earned it for your extensive contributions that greatly improve coverage of Belgium! Oreo Priest, 9 December 2013 Congrats on your latest GA and for improving the Belgium and Tintin articles! Prhartcom, 21 May 2014 Flight of the Wild Geese award Seems a fitting way to mark the well-merited promotion of "Congo Crisis" to GA! Cliftonian, 3 August 2014 Thank you for quality articles such as German occupation of Belgium during World War I, for rewriting the history of Belgium, including featured topic Belgium in World War II, for your plans to improve the African topics, because "The day will come when ... Africa will write its own history ... of glory and dignity", - you are an awesome Wikipedian! You have been selected as Editor of the Week in recognition of your concerned editing of Belgian articles. Thank you for the great contributions! Buster Seven, 23 April 2017

African history[edit]

Worldwide density of geotagged Wikipedia entries

This is something I feel strongly about. There is little doubt that Wikipedia is shaped by a general tendency to write reams about the tiniest minutiae in Western, and particularly US, history. This is perfectly understandable but we must now concentrate on remedying the core deficiencies of our project... many of which lie in African history where key topics are often still missing or of little more than stub quality. As African economies develop, Wikipedia has a real chance to become the reference source of impartial, comprehensive information on the history of the continent. An interesting article about the challenges wiki faces in Africa is available here.

For a (hopefully) balanced discussion of whether "Luxemboug", "Luxembourgish" or "Luxembourgian" is the correct adjective for Luxembourg, please see my user essay here. And feel free to update it.
