WikiProject Belgium.jpg

Welcome to WikiProject Belgium! This group hopes to

  • improve articles related to Belgium.
  • create missing articles on various fields (history, geography, culture, music, people, organisations, ...).
  • If this project gains sufficient critical mass, the talk page could be an efficient way of contacting other Belgians (e.g. for local meetings).

The central place to talk about this project is this page's discussion page.

The parent of this project is WikiProject Countries.

We are always looking for interested members!

Article creation drive[edit]

  • You can add links in the normal Wikipedia way (using [[ and ]]), or you can use the ill and ill2 templates (that put these handy links to the wikipedias in other languages behind the article title).
  • Anyone can bold articles that they consider high priority!
  • If you translate an article, first read Wikipedia:Translation#Instructions.
  • A bluelinked "striked" title (like this) means that the article has been checked for spelling and grammar. Please check articles that haven't been striked yet.
edit·history·watch·refresh  To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Belgium:

Stub sorting[edit]

  • Please use the most specific stub tag possible.
  • Propose new stub categories according to guidelines. All new stub types should be proposed at WP:WSS/P before creation. Otherwise, these may need to be renamed, modified, or deleted, because they may mess up the hierarchy of stub types.


Article Requests[edit]

Image requests[edit]

In addition to posting your image requests on the talk page(s) of the subject(s) (which will place them in Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Belgium), and on the Wikimedia Commons (Commons:Commons:Picture requests), please also post them at fr:Wikipédia:Atelier photographique on the French Wikipedia. If you do not know French, you can ask someone at fr:Wikipédia:Bistro_des_non-francophones/en to help you.

Pages of interest[edit]

Watchlist must-haves[edit]

Some high-profile articles related to Belgium that have been repeatedly vandalised (the typical insert-a-not-so-funny-joke vandalism).
