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.

  • Other than the usuals, what are the most interesting events in Armenian History?

    Whenever we hear people talk about the most interesting things that have happened in our history, the events described are usually the same select few

    Tigran the Great's Expansion,
    Vartanantz,
    Conversion to Christianity/Alphabet creation,
    The Genocide
    Independence
    War and conflict with Azebaijan.

    But what are some possibly more interesting and less heard about events in our history? For instance, was there ever any kind of War of the Roses or Game Of Thrones political backstabbing between members of royal families vying for the throne? etc
    Due to budget cuts the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

    Sure there was but only a good historian may or may not know about it. One of the interesting things you did not mention was the last kingdom packing up and moving to Cilicya. Our history is long but our independence is not..therefore the kind of stuff you are talking about is mostly forgotten.
    Hayastan or Bust.

      My travel back in time found many questions.
      The book of doom speaks of the "Armina" as one of 5 or so people's inhabiting the island when Saxons came there. What was their journey and when did they get there.
      What was their interaction with the other people's and is there any collective memory there today?
      Lavash in Wales & Hayastan come to mind. Kara Hunge (talking stones?) and stone Henge come to mind also. Henge doesn't have a meaning in local speach but is quite similar to Hunge in Armenian.
      What were we doing before converting ? What was our conduct and way of life?
      Haig leaves the Assyr and returns to the land of his origins. That belies that we have a long history in the original city states.
      Many questions.

            Ever looked up the nutritional value of hemp seeds & oil?
            For health and well being, it's tough to beat.

            The USA diet of yesteryear compared to today ... well, when I was a kid it was rare to see an obese person and today it's common.
            It was rare to hear someone was diabetic and today it's common, etc.

            Many of the old ways sucked, but I think even more of the new sucks.

            Seeds & food are cool if one has ever heard of moderation.
