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.


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.

      Re: Hemshin peoples


      Radio Liberty informs that Charles Aznavour told Sargsyan during his
      working visit to Paris that Armenia must readmit Armenians who were
      converted to Islam. The singer and ambassador of Armenia to Switzerland
      had earlier dwelled on this matter in an interview with a European
      periodical, noting that he talked to the Armenian government a few
      years ago but there is no progress yet.

      This is an interesting matter that Charles Aznavour brings up. There
      are approximately 1 million Muslim Armenians all over the world. It
      is not known how many of them want to move to Armenia. However,
      apparently, there is a big wish if Charles Aznavour raises this issue
      publicly and with the Armenian government.

      This is a sensitive issue, especially now that the government is
      trying to use the Armenian apostolic Church as a criterion of Armenian
      identity. Does the Armenian government consider Mulsim Armenians to
      be Armenians? Coming to the office of the president in 2008, Serzh
      Sargsyan dwelled on this in one of his foreign speeches, announcing
      that Muslim Armenians are equally our compatriots.

      On these days, however, Serzh Sargsyan has been in a difficult
      situation, under internal pressure after March 1 and strong external
      pressure and has been trying to counteract with records of being
      broadminded. Now Serzh Sargsyan's goals are even more narrow, and
      the issue of Muslim Armenians is pushed behind.

      However, Charles Aznavour made a reminder. In addition, his reminder
      came along the Synod of Bishops which made decisions on universal
      decisions on uniformity in baptism and beatifying. Most probably,
      these decisions have not impressed the great singer, and he therefore
      proposes not to ignore in the context of the importance of beatifying
      the victims of the genocide the Armenians who have also been affected
      by the genocide but are alive and need the special attitude of Armenia.

      Does Armenia need them? There is no answer to this question at
      the government's and public levels. This issue is not important,
      whereas in the world that is undergoing change it is hard to tell
      when the Republic of Armenia will have to dwell on the issue of
      Muslim Armenians, either recognize them or reject them. However,
      it will certainly have to. Aznavour proposes thinking about this at
      the state and public levels and get ready to assume responsibility,
      not denunciation.
