I can answer your questions about:
  • Any of the places listed above (I can't guarantee that I have the answer)
  • Anything related to the Netherlands (or Luxembourg) in general.
  • If you're working on cycling or heritage railway articles for places listed above, I'd be happy to help out.
  • I find myself coming back to map and transport-related efforts. Feel free to include me on these if you seek some help.

Dutch Wikivoyage Wikimedia Commons Dutch Wikipedia English Wikipedia

Hoi, I am Wauteurz (IPA: /waʊ̯tøːrs/), a Dutch student of archaeology. Uni is my main priority, hence why my activity here is best summarised as "varyingly active". You will mostly find me here, as well as NLWikipedia and Commons from time to time. I don't often go far from home, and am not much of a globetrotter myself. I mostly limit myself to edits around the Netherlands and Luxembourg for that reason, but may contribute to other (Western) European articles from time to time. The free time I have available for Wikivoyage is time I either spend covering Wikivoyage in pagebanners or maintaining and updating {{Rint}}, which as it stands, has been largely developed by me. At this moment, roughly 3.91% of all pagebanners on ENWikivoyage have been made by me (~785).


I should probably mention here that what follows is a to-do list, and that I do not like to follow them precisely, especially not for something I do on a recreational basis, such as Wikivoyage.

  • ONGOING: Updating and improving 'new RINT', as well as other template work.
  • ONGOING: Working on Dutch Empire.
  • PLANNED: Great Trek, per Talk:Dutch Empire.
  • CONCEPT: More articles on former empires; German Empire (possibly basing on the basis of the German language rather than modern-day Germany, thus also including Brandenburg and Austria(-Hungary)), Belgian Empire (Congo, Mexico).
  • ON HOLD: RINTroad (Rint for roads), making {{Routebox}} less dependant on Commons and generating these icons locally. I suspect it's already too late to make this switch with 39.9% of city articles having a Routebox already.
