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.

    Re: Armenian Highlands: the birth place of civilization

    Armenian,
    I just came accross this site. Love it. Most info is a few years old though. First a question for you. I am looking for information on the Nairi. I do not mean just a few paragraphs. I mean, books, pamphlets, research material! Same for Sasun, not 1800's but beginnings (i.e. founding of Sasun). Have you come accross the name Tarauntis? Do you have any material linking Armenians to Hittitites? I always thought it was logical but never found any material to back up such a theory.
    Now a comment. I do not agree with your Pantheon. I would not include Hayk & Ara Geghetzik as deities. Legendary Heroes or Demigods, yes. Also, I think you are missing a god of the underworld. In Armenian Lore it was Spantaramet I believe.
    Best Regards,
    Sasun

      The Lords of Hattusa - The Ancient Hittite Empire

      Interesting documentary of this Ancient Empire... in the highlands of Anatolia, much like Armenia today, was landlocked.

        speaking of resurrection, the latest avatar was sort of unexpected although we could definitely feel something a few years ago, some sort of movement towards zoroastrianism... maybe a little taste for agitprop too.

            It's said that the Hittites originated from the Black Sea and Caspian Sea area. The Hittites where the earliest known, Indo-European peoples to develop a civilization and they also hold the distinction of ranking as one of the four great powers of the ancient world.

              Have better things to do - might watch them sometime in thefuture but it doesn't sound like a serious account - switched off at 3:31 after the words "Central Anatolia". To have that said in a 1900s context would make any archaeologist laugh. The map doesn't even show Constantinople in the right place!

                The "documentary" was made fairly recently and in a 2000 context, Ankara, sadly enough is in "Central Anatolia". Constantinople is generally considered the land East of the walls of Constantine. That large dot is probably depicting the Palace of Boukoleon.

                    When you say 'ancient world' are you referring to the actual world or the Near East?
                    For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
                    to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.
