Hello and welcome to my userpage. Mohamed CJ is a pseudonym I started using since 2008; Mohamed is the most common Arabic name and arguably the most common in the world. CJ is the protagonist of GTA San Andreas, a game that reminds me of an old friend.
Never blogging before, I made my first edit to Wikipedia on 17 May2011. For a while, my username was "Bahraini Activist". I also operate another account: Mohamed CJ (public).
My main area of interest is Bahrain-related articles, particularly the Bahraini uprising and modern history of Bahrain, but I also edit a variety of other topics.
I've learnt much from Wikipedia and met some good friends. My English has definitely improved and I've become familiar with viewing events and ideas from multiple points of view. I've also learned how to deal with and avoid copyright issues such as close paraphrasing.
Starting from March 2012, I started nominating articles at "Did you know?" section and in October I nominated my first Good Article. I find both processes very interesting and time worthy. I plan to visit the Featured Article/List area when I've got more time.
I come from the tiny island of Bahrain in the Persian Gulf. Bahrain is one of the smallest countries in the world, having the same land area as New York City, but only a fraction of the population (600k citizens).
It's hard for anyone living here not to have a conflict of interest or bias with anything Bahraini-related. For example, if you write a BLP, this person could be your relative, lives in your area, your political hero or perhaps the dictator ruling you.
My personal views are pro-democracy and anti-government. While acknowledging this, I keep my views to myself when writing articles and strive to maintain a neutral point of view.
