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.

      In regard t Udis, Talish and others in that region---
      You need to actually talk to the Udi's and parse their words carefully and then run a comparative analysis with our battles of that time frame to see who those people are.
      Godda&nit,I just wrote many words and this is all that came out!
      I ounce went out with a dumb cun?.
      That ended when I sobered up.

        I have to start driving now so will need to wait before I can rewrite all words that didn't appear previously.

          A lot of info above this post but confusing in its presentation.
          Too many points scattered to answer or elaborate without first arranging all points coherently .
          To make the Albanian/ Udi/ Talish/ Lizgan/---baboon---/ point clear:
          The Albanians ( not what they were called then ) came in the back side of what is now called Georgia.
          That is to say the watershed between Georgia and the Caspian.
          They met us. Fights were fought. We ere pushed back but many scattered were isolated and remained or a long time. After agreements were made and deals were struck a time of relative peace occurred.
          Then deals were broken and they pushed into Artsakh and bit further. Then we finally drove them out of Artsakh. Look to Prince Arran for that time frame.
          Udi are a mix of those Albanians and a precursor Iranic people's that preceded Parthia/ Persia.
          They ( the Udi will tell you hat themselves.
          The others--- Talish, Lizgan etc. are Udi plus turco for a three people mix.
          If you go to Udi ( about 10,000 left ) and look at their faces you clearly see two disparate peoples.
          Go to Albania (modern ) and see identicle faces.
          There is more but I have to go.
          None of this is hard to find

            Don't have much time but forgot couple points.
            Look to the 7th century bc for first old Albanian appearance then look to our battles with invaders of time period.
            When Udi's first mention themselves look to our first troubles with Parth/ Pers types.
            When Talish, Lisgan first appear look to our first troubles with turcos.
            When I said to look at faces in modern Albania I meant the lighter ones. It's very clear and easy to decern.
            Udi has in same family dark haired , dark eyed ( that's the latter Iranic admixture .
