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.

    However when my daughter found out about this project http://www.birthrightarmenia.org/en/ she left a very good job to be able to participate.

    When she came back she couldn't stop talking about it.

    She will be visiting Armenia for the third time also with friends she made through this project.

I'd been there three times before I did Birthright, but in all those three times I didn't experience 10% of what I got out of Birthright. moreover you make connections with people there in business, education, govt that make you feel like a local even when you leave and want to come back some day.

    They basically pay for your flight, housing, a lot of trips and events there, in exchange for you to volunteer for four months in the country. You can do it for two months for 50% of flight, and 100% of other costs paid.

    The internship is in professional fields of choice. They get you just about anything, much better than most things you can land here. I had a pre-med friend who was in the operation room everyday alongside surgeons, something you could never do here.

    For the housing they put you with a family there and you live with them. The families are great and have been doing it for years. You basically become a member of the family

    Then there's weekly excursions to just about every place in the country, including places most locals hadn't even been. Then there's access to restricted sites that you would otherwise never get to see: including Artsakh front lines, Turkish-Armenian militarized border at the very edge-a few km beyond civilian access.

    then there's weekly key note speakers, and meetings with govt officials. We met a bunch of important CEO's, veteran groups, and government officials including president of Artsakh and the Defense Minister

    And there's a bunch of other stuff like going to game matches, parades, etc.


    Honestly every single person that I have met had a positive experience, and most say it was the best decision of their life to do it.

    Birthright is exactly what I have been championing for many years. It makes hope about our future possible. I have seen young people who participated in similar programs and they all were very eager to return to Hayastan and to continue having a relationship with her. This is a part of nationbuilding and bringing our people togather.
