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.

  • what kids say about love

    What does love mean?

    A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds. answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

    "When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love."
    Rebecca - age 8

    "When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth."
    Billy - age 4

    "Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."
    Karl - age 5

    "Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs."
    Chrissy - age 6

    "Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
    Terri - age 4

    "Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."
    Danny - age 7

    "Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss"
    Emily - age 8

    "Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen,"
    Bobby - age 7

    "If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,"
    Nikka - age 6

    "There are two kinds of love. Our love. God's love. But God makes both kinds of them."
    Jenny - age 8

    "Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday."
    Noelle - age 7

    "Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well."
    Tommy - age 6

    "During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore,"
    Cindy - age 8

    "My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night."
    Clare - age 6

    "Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken."
    Elaine -age 5 "Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford."
    Chris - age 7

    "Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day."
    Mary Ann - age 4

    "I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones."
    Lauren - age 4

    "I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says she only picks on me because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister because I love her."
    Bethany - age 4

    "When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you."
    Karen - age 7

    "Love is when mommy sees daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross."
    Mark - age 6

    "You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget,"
    Jessica - age 8



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

    The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

    When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry."

        Yeah - and they are all so true.

        Yesterday a work collegue of mine was telling how his great aunt who is 105 years old and has been recently fading really perked up when she was holding and stroking his baby grandson. When they took the kid away she motioned for them to let her hold him some more (don't think she can talk). The way he described it (better then I) really touched me - to the point where I'm crying (tearing up) a little even as I type this....

                    What if I find someone else when looking for you? My soul shivers as the idea invades my mind.
