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.

  • Leaving Armenia: What I'll miss, what I won't

    Interesting piece by an erstwhile and possibly future repatriate.

    For the first time in quite a while, Iím leaving Armenia for a non-trivial period of time. Iíll be back in a few months, but am seriously reconsidering my previous inertia toward longer-term residence. I havenít fully made up my mind. Thereís some novel personal reasons that enter into the deliberation lately, including a very short-lived and spectacularly failed marriage here, but Iím not letting a bad marriage ruin Armenia for me, and Iím not here to talk about that. I wanted to share some more general parting thoughts and observations.

    Everything he says is spot on. Good writing and accurate but i will say that after the war and including the situation now and possible restart ofwar, and historic events all contribute to the hatred of the Turk and understandibly so.

        You can tell whether a man is clever by his answers. You can tell whether a man is wise by his questions.

          "The dark age of the village has dawned".

          Author means he doesn't need to go to an Armenian village to see village life attitudes - he sees it everywhere in Yerevan, in the majority of the population, those that are not "classical Yerevanians". But you don't need to even go to Armenia to see dark age Armenian village life attitudes - you see it everywhere here on this forum. So I have to question if Haykakan has actually read everything in the article if he thinks "Everything he says is spot on".

            I think Haykakan tends to be one of the few who isn't decades behind in his views regarding social and family structure.

              Heh i feel special the cat has singled me out so like yeh i agree with most things he said so what of it? Ill go even further and say its all over the diaspora to - just visit L.A. and see. I will say that the disconnect between Armenia and diaspora is not just because of this. It takes two to tango and the diasporans have their own pile of poo that stinks.
