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.

  • Well hello there

    Stumbled across this site and found it interesting to see there was a fairly active online community to be found here. Thought I might join to see where this takes me.

    I am an Armenian citizen living in America... think that that will suffice by way of introduction; if I take it any further this post will degrade to an autobiography.

    But I look forward to meeting some of you, and perhaps I will become a regular. Cheers.

      Voch. I've never lived in Armenia, though I visit every other year. Born in Russia, lived in France for awhile.

      And I'd like to maintain a neutral age and gender. I have found that it affected people's outlook on me in other forums, so I can be male is you wish.

      "Western Assimilation is the greatest threat to the Armenian nation since the Armenian Genocide." This is clearly a crucial notion for you, since you chose it for your signature. Would you care to elaborate?

        ah okay...

        Because it is. With assimilation your nation's numbers begin dwindling, you have the culture distorted by non-Armenians, research the term "White Genocide".....it's the same us massacring the nation, just done at a slower rate....

          Genocide is organized and deliberate. This is more of an aftermath of the genocide.

          I see merit in the idea, but there is a fine line between evolution and dilution. Western influence can serve to strengthen nations (take Japan, for instance). I think the main issue isn't the influence of other cultures, it's that once you leave the motherland there is little incentive to come back in terms of the life prospects it can offer. Family can root you there, but if one seeks employment, a good place to settle, it's not the foremost destination. That needs to be changed, but it's a massive problem requiring strong reform of resource allocation and mindset.

          On a side note, I'm not entirely sure that Armenia isn't Western itself. Actually, in a modern context, what IS considered Western? Globalization has seen to it that most nations follow a traditionally Western template of governance. The Far East is Western; who's to say Armenia isn't?

            It is people like Mos who are "the greatest threat to the Armenian nation since the Armenian Genocide" - they are partly responsible for the continuing mass mmigration from Armenia, and they are especially responsible for the most damaging loss, the loss of most of its better-educated young population who leave as soon as they are old enough to do so (who amongst them would wish to remain in a country ruled by criminal mafiosi and where social interactions are governed by a Mos-style Armenian Taliban).
