Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

These exodus and later deportations of Armenians continued well into the 17th 18th century with Iran namely Shah Abaz taking large segment of Armenian population and settling them in Iran. We became minorities in our own homeland.
    I might have mixed it up but during the arab invasions didnt some arab leader gather large parts of armenian nobility for a meeting and then just execute them all.

      Yes you are correct. There is an actual date and name for the event but I cant remember. That event is very interesting, because it caused all of the Armenian nobles to unite. Before the event Arabs being the shrewd manipulators that they are understood the mentality and culture of the Armenian nobles, and played them off against each other. There were cases where different Armenian nobility would join the side of the Arabs against other Armenian nobles. I think the Arabs got too xxxxy and decided to put the nail in the coffin and invited the heads of all the noble families for a meeting at a church, once they arrived they locked them in the church and burned it. Well the news got out, and the younger sons of the noble families united like they had never united before and in the amount of just couple of years had defeated the Arab armies, and driven Arab settlers who had come to settle in Armenia in numbers out. In just a couple of years after uniting All of Armenia was free of Arab rule and kingdom was established.

        Not to mention those who left and went to build cilicia. Ani was destroyed and estimated 100,000 perished. Then mongols came and destroyed it again. And how many were assimilated into the ottoman turks. Their sons were taken and made soldiers etc. It was not until russia came to south caucus in begining of 19th century that our numbers started to pick up in eastern armenia. Now we have a golden chance because of the semi-stability to pick up numbers but its being wasted.
