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.

                • I didn't like the parade yesterday. I don't understand the sense of these units marching with historic uniforms from WWI/1918 and WWII. They could show these old uniforms as part of the exhibition, that would be enough. The part with the cavalry was a big fail. And why are they dancing cossack dances on our Republic Day. The Soviets wanted us to dance and speak Russian, we should't do this on this special day. Generally there was no need to integrate the history of our participation in the WWII in this parade.
                  But the biggest shock for me was to see that our army units have gotten religious banners. Are we crusaders now or what?

                    We always were! Not in the religious sense of it, but as an identity. The whole Muslim world proudly display the star and crescent on their flags. The shekelists their Armenian stolen six headed Star. While the so called Christian West does not want to offend anyone. It seams some of us are too influenced by neutrality?

                      Too influenced by neutrality??? No, my "friend", but the muslims and jews shouldn't be our scale. You are talking about symbols on flags. We have some indirectly christian symbols on our Coat of Arms as it is part of our history. That's normal. And many western states like Sweden, Switzerland, UK have even a cross on their flag. So I don't get your point.
                      State and church are seperated and this new trend to integrate the church and the religion in every aspect of life of our army with priests marching side-by-side with soldiers and soldiers marching with religious banners is completely wrong and against this principle. The armenian church has some privileges according to the constitution but these don't allow the church to infiltrate the army like this. Our regular army is an attribute of statehood, not a group of fedayis or medieval knights (with all due respect to our fedayis and medieval knights).
                      Btw to march in front of the secular government must also be inacceptable for the church. The katoghikos should bless our army, priests should be integrated in the psychological service of our army and that's all. But today our soldiers have to pray before every meal, they get a cross and a bible and even our parade in 2016 started with an obligatory prayer of the soldiers. In 1994 and 1998 there were only some blessing words of the Katoghikos. So, there are some new trends which are not okay. My relatives in the army told me the same.
