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.

  • Armenian with a not-Armenian girl

    Hi, I'm 22 years old and I'm an Armenian. At the university I met a girl (latina). We've been together for almost 3 years and she has met my brother. She is willing to learn our languages and raise our childeren in an Armenian way. I'm just not sure my family will except her. She is very kind ans respectful. What do you think of all this?

    Re: Armenian with a not-Armenian girl

    I always liked Latinas more than Europeans or white Americans. They are warmer people and more family oriented Honestly, this isn't a matter for the forum to discuss. This is a matter between your family and her family. Obviously we encourage Armenians to be with Armenians, but that can't always be the case....

      Re: Armenian with a not-Armenian girl

      What if one is in such a position but the non-Armenian is afraid of not being accepted later if the couple eventually re-locates near an Armenian community because of a previous experience of someone else they know? Is there any advice on how to help that person adjust?

        Well I don't see why a non-Armenian would expect to be accepted as Armenian in Armenian community. He or She is always going to be foreign in the Armenian community. But that's also true for all ethnicities. (except maybe Canadian/American)

          True, but an odar parent who is more comfortable at Armenian events will be more easily inclined to take his kids to them and demonstrate the importance of that to the kids.

            Well, yes, I guess, I don't have a problem going to Russian events, but I won't ever feel or be Russian. I won't ever feel part of the Russian community or nation. (nor will they ever accept me as one)

              Do you feel highly out of place? Do you feel comfortable at Russian events? Why? How hard do think it is for that to change with someone?

                I mean I might feel a bit more comfortable since there are some common Soviet elements in Armenian/Russian cultures, but beyond that no. I guess if as a foreigner you grew up in Russia you might feel more comfortable. As you see, in the end, it all has to do with what culture you were raised in and thus that culture you will always connect the most to, while other cultures, for the most part, just feel out of place.

                    around age 22 is the best age to start a family.
