Hi! I am Abbad Diraneyya. I have been contributing to Wikipedia since 2007, and have been an admin on the Arabic version for three years, until I requested my resignation (for personal issues).

I mostly write long and extensively researched featured content on Arabic Wikipedia, I carefully choose its subjects from stuff that I feel interesting: mostly, it is about astronomy, wildlife or history. I also do a great deal of organizational work in the 'places' where I live. I have been a co-founder of Wikimedia Levant, co-organizer of four versions of Wiki Loves Monuments in two Arab countries, and vice director of WikiArabia 2016 event in Amman. I also had the great pleasure of attending Wikimania twice. Currently, I am studying a bachelor of English Literature and trying to learn my way through German.

I rarely contribute here, I am mostly a browser but I will occasionally make edits when I feel the need to. I mostly focus on the Arabic Wikipedia version, you can check my user page there for further information, or take a look at my sole contribution to English Wikipedia.
