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.

  • Opening Borders

    Dear ArmenianClub Forum Members.
    Lately I read and hear lots of news opening borders between Armenia and Turkey. I don't have an opinion about this event. I am wondering if opening the borders means full scale of relations or just a certain areas , like transport goods, so forth and so on. I also heard in the news that people from Armenia going to work in Bolis. I would like to hear from you.
    Best Regards To All.

    Well, welcome to the board (finally)!

    Yeah, the border issue certainly is a hot topic lately, and it can have a very good impact on Armenia's economy.

    Economists are saying that it should increase Armenia's production by a billion dollars, which is quite impressive.

    To answer your question, this does not mean full-scale development of relations (according to FM Oskanian). He was quoted as saying something along the lines of "Just because diplomatic relations have not been established between our countries, it does not mean that our businessmen can't work together, and products cannot be sold". He also said that it would be a small step towards EVENTUALLY developping stable diplomatic relations.

    It should be noted that everybody is talking about the opening of the borders as a sure thing that will happen in the very near future. Not so. Discussions are veeery preliminary and it might take a long time before it is implemented. Nevertheless, the fact that it is now considered possible is, if you ask me, a very good step for Armenia.

    What I do fear is the possibility of expatriation, but I do believe that measures will be taken until then to disallow such a thing.

    All in all, I consider it to be a very positive step for Armenia. An extra billion dollars can't do us harm.

      Just reply

      Thank you very much for reply.
      Unfornutaly I am still having problems with ArmenianClub Forum program, probably it is me. Very diffucult to stay on the forum, I contacted to administrator maybe some flaws with the program itself , so far no reply.
      Any way, I thank for your reply my subject : Opening borders. I am building slowly my opionion about this event. This event or others to come , my focus is always will be on to Armenian Genocide. I strongly belive before Turkey recognize the Armenian Genocide should be no communication with the evil goverment of Turkey.
      This is my opinion so far.
      Best my regards to you.
