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.

    Look at the personal names of the "Aghvans" themselves and you tell me if you cannot see the huge number of Armenian names even if they are modified it is still easy to see.

        The Aghvans are not related to the Albanians of the Balkans. They are related to us(Armenians).
        The only relation they have to the Balkan Albanians is that aprrox. 6th century bc a part of the (Albanian?) migration moved into that area and overwhelmed the original(Armenian) population.
        For scientific understanding look to best scholars on migration patterns that is established.
        Lots out there if you ask the question right.

                You have replied to one of my posts. Unfortunately my family decided not to teach the children to speak Armenian(their personal reasons).
                I would like to know what your reply to my comment was.
                Might you show me that consideration?
                Having said that , I do appreciate you responding in Armenian(I miss hearing the family speak it).

                  what are you basing your theory on? On what historical work are you basing yourself on and can you provide sources for all this BS? Especially for the Albanian part that the Caucasian Albanians come from the same place as the Balkan Albanians and also a piece of work where it shows the the Balkan Albanians are not native to the Balkans.
                  You should never argue with idiots because they will just drag you down to their level....then beat you with experience!!!!!!!

                    Sorry, I did not knew.
                    I was saying, I had never read, that we were the indigenous people north east of the Kur river.
                    I was interested if you had sources.
                    I similarly never read any link whatsoever linking Caucasian and Balkanian 'Albanians', even in their origins, or in their original migrations.
                    I have a slight idea about indo-european migrations, and the different theories about them, but have a rather good idea about our national history, and as a matter of fact, being one of the oldest nations with the Persians and the Greeks, why should we trust more others than our sources?
                    At least ours are continuous since at least Ardashisyan dynasty...
                    So, to my knowledge, and according our classical knowledge, we Armenians are the result of the indigenous Ourartean and proto-Armenian (Hayasa/Nayiri...) tribes, and the mix of 'Armen' tribes (usually presented as coming in from the west, but this is still object to lot of academic disputes, even the '%' newcomers addition to the end product turns out to be largely disputed...)
                    Anyway, this is not the matter.
                    We were there much before all others, specially much before the nowday Georgians, so azaris and Turks are not even a matter, since their arrival is pretty well documented and not a subject of academic dispute, put aside their internal caricatural propaganda.
                    But to my knowledge, while the ethnographic borders of Armenia on the western, and southern sides are very complicated, exceeding largely the borders of Medz and Pokkr Hayks, plus I, II, III, IV Hayks (nowdays Yozgad, etc... being ethnically mix and for some times under armenian principalities, independent of the main Armenian Kingdoms)..., on the North West, in all sources, generally we admit that Armenians were limited by the Kur river.
                    I never read that originally, the Shirvan plain and the Absheron peninsula was inhabited by the Armenian ethnos.
                    Of course there were Armenian principalities and fortified towns in Vartashen, Goudgashen, Shamakh, Terpend, etc... for some periods, with sizable populations, but these were people having emigrated, with their princes/meliks, from mainly Oudik, Arsakh and Syounik, due to political events, invasions, etc... as were the case with the case of Kakhet (nowday georgianised population is directly related to Artsakh, with replication of original village and topographic names, still existing in modern Artsakh), or the princes of Vanant, Dourouperan and Dayk princes who emigrated due to Byzantine policy to the Balkans with entire populations...
                    Or on a totally different scale the emigration of Bagratide/Roupinians to Kilikia and Crimea after the fall of Ani....

                    But this does not change the fact, that the ethnos living north of the Kur was different, mainly named by us as Aghvans, with actual remains probably like the Udis, Tzakours??.... of course no link in any manner with the central asian nomads that came in later, much later, while there were arabs, persians, etc... before.
                    The Talysh are a people having coexisted with the Aghvans, since their place was south of Paydagaran, and had no direct contact with the Aghvans land.
                    At least, this is my knowledge.
                    And as you see, I like reading, and would be very interested, if you can give me sources indicating otherwise
