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.

    Yes Baron I am really interested in the history and I would love to learn Armenian history again from a more mature viewpoint than 7th grade history class.
    Then read Derenik Demirdjian's book. It's been a while since I read it, but I remember being very very interested by it.

            Originally posted by TigranJamharian Yes agains the turks also. but that was in 1920

            Dont you know about Vartan Mamikonian against the Persians and how we held them back when they wanted to convert us to fire worshipers. That was back in 451 Ad i think. Im not sure because I havent gone to Armenians school since 8th grade so I forgot all my dates.
            These people need to snap back into reality. They proved their false misinterpretation when they said "sarbarad" was when the Armenians battled Persians. Anyway, it surely was a victory because the Persians-- being the sycophantic bottom feeders-- they literally surrendered to the outnumbered Armenian troops when the battles were taking place. For some miraculously odd reason, the Persians were just TOO MUCH yet Vartan s nephew VAHAN finally took the matters into his own hands near the mountain top then suddenly the so called "mighty Persians" were not so mighty when they were fleeing away as they fell one by one to the Armenian forces as soon as they turned the tide towards Persians near that little mountain side. Amazing indeed. Had Armenians been more unified the Persians would not have even DARED to enter Armenia afterwards to even "Start" a "war."

              What was that story about the armenians being able to turn the persian elephants against the persians? I remember getting quite a kick out of that story back in the day.

                yeahhhhhhhhhh! i remember that. the elephants were drunk werent they? the persians got the elephants drunk to make them ferocious and attack. i dont remember how they turned them against them though. i think it might have just been that since they were drunk they attacked everyone in sight and couldnt be controlled.
