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.

    Food for thought: With all these events going on in NKR, Armenia should start thinking about introducing a visa regime with Turkey.

        It's so hard though to conceive of this happening in Armenia. The only thing we have going for us in this country is safety/stability. Let's hope its a random crazy person instead of the start of a pattern. the problem is, even the once in a decade crazy person in armenia directs their action towards the ruling elite. Hard to imagine, even the most unstable, most evil intentioned person doing this to random people. That's why i fear the worst

          what do you mean? what's the standard now? how do Turks enter Armenia right now?

          Another issue is the Iranian Azeri's who compose almost all Iranian tourists in Armenia. Most don't have strong sympathies toward Azerbaijan, but clearly as we discussed here before, a significant number do

          UPDATE from someone in Yerevan

          "The government is not trying to accuse anybody until they get some facts... But the bus driver has been arrested"

          idk about the validity of this, so just treat it as a rumor for now

            As far as I know, it's the same procedure for Turkish and Lebanese passport holders (like myself). Visa upon arrival at the airport.

              Let's not get ahead of ourselves with this ISIS stuff. Wait for statement from Armenian police first. Even though it looks like explosives, the explosion could still be accidental. Someone carrying highly flammable/explosive material that accidentally ignited for example. Even a big batch of bad fireworks can do such damage.

              If it's terrorist attack, why choose the least crowded time of the day (just past midnight) when you can maximize casualties any other time? The casualty rate being so low, why not a bigger bomb that could have killed all the more people? Etc.

                Regular gunpowder used in hunting cartridges could do that. You can find it in any hunting shop.

                  nice level headed analysis. all good points. That might have been the very last, or at least one of the very last buses/mashutkas given the time of the day and route.

                  also the location. Even outside kentron, there are dozens of streets I can think of for maximum damage before halabyan

                    I don't believe it is ISIS, but I do see a potential threat with Iran as there are many Azeris who live in Iran and would legally be capable of coming to Armenia.
