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.

          And if you happen to answer atheist, what Mos will also want to know is "but, are you an Armenian Apostolic atheist, or an Uzbek Muslim atheist, or a German Catholic (or Protestant) atheist"?

          Welcome anyway.

              Why can't I ask a simple question without you taking over?

                Welcome Nozir.
                I'm Artashes, born in southern California, in 1949.
                Many years ago in my youth in high school, I had two friends that were both high school buddy's but also surfing companions , actually constant surfing companions.
                Their names were ,Lauren & Fred (Frederic) Stassart. They were originally from Belgium.
                Lauren and I were dear friends.
                Your being in the Benelux area brought back memories.
                Hope your stay in Leuxemberg is as pleasant as my friendship with Lauren of Belgium.

                  Hello Hello!
                  Thank you everybody for your welcome. Yes in deed, my “curriculum vitae” is a bit uncommon, for sure….
                  My religion? I personally think in general that this is first of all something private. I have learnt that religion caused and still causes too much of killing and troubles in this world, so I dont walk around and preach and pray and try to convince people to follow “my” god. Its not good. But Ill answer your question:
                  As mentioned I was born in Yerevan, my dad (Armenian Christian) and my mother (originally Uzbek, and yes she was originally a muslim) fell in love in Armenia and married and produced 2 kids, one of them was obviously me.
                  When I was at the age of 8, we where allowed to live in Germany, where I learned German, joined the school and finished the German Gymnasium with my “Abitur”. I studied mechanical engineering in Germany, am holding a German passport and have to say that I like Germany, I feel bound to it. I feel German – but I also feel Armenian out of my heart, this is my root, this is where I come from. Donno if you can understand that, it’s a bit of a strange feeling.
                  Regarding religion, my parents did never educate me in a certain direction, it was never really important. I do not belong to any religious group formally, despite I feel and live as Christian.
