I am user Walter (Walter Vermeir) form Belgium. My home Wiki is the dutch Wikipedia or "Wikipedia NL" like we call it.

I suppose you can call me a wikipedia old-timer. According to the logs I have discovered Wikipedia on 2005-09-15. But am really active with Wikipedia since early 2002. I am more involved with Wikipedia "management" then writing on articles. But that work also needs to be done.
