    My name is Alaa (In Arabic: علاء). I am a native Arabic and near native English speaker. I created my account in October 2010, and I have been active (on a regular basis) since December 2014, so, I am active for over three years now. I am currently a bureaucrat, sysop and checkuser on Arabic Wikipedia, sysop on Wikidata and sysop on Arabic Wikibooks. I serve also as an OTRS member for Arabic queues. On Meta, I hold Global renamer permission since February 2017, and I am an active member of SWMT. I am active almost on all projects that I hold advanced rights in. Over the years, I have made more than 300K edits on Wikimedia wikis. I also run my bot, AlaaBot, on several wikis to do various maintenance tasks. In addition to this, I frequently spend time on various IRC channels, including #cvn-sw, #wikimedia-stewards and #wikimedia-rename.

    Moreover, I attended and helped in the organization of many Wikimedia-related events. For example, I helped in the organization of WikiArabia 2017. I am also a member of Wikimedians of the Levant since May 2015. In addition to this, I am one of the members of Arabic Wikipedia's social networking team. That's the team that manages the official accounts of Arabic Wikipedia on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

    As a steward, I would like to help with the steward requests backlog. I would like to handle requests on Meta, mostly on SRUC, SRCU, SRGP, SRP and various other maintenance tasks from time to time. I want, also, to use my steward access for fighting crosswiki vandals/spammers. I also believe that, being an Arabic speaker and from the Global South, I will bring linguistic and cultural diversity to the steward team, as there is no currently-active Arabic steward.

    As a CheckUser I have already signed the confidentiality agreements.

    Thank you for your time and consideration and don't hesitate to ask any questions. Best, --Alaa :)..! 15:52, 26 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
