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.

    She is very good. I wonder how aware she is of her Armenian heritage and if she cares about it.

        Re: Karina Pasian

        Notice how she can sing in turkish, but not Armenian. Yeah, another great example of Armenian pride, just like the kardashians!
        For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
        to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

            Doesn't know what...turkish? That could be, I mean anyone can add that since it is wikipedia, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were true. I think it is true.

              Haha no, maybe she doesn't even know what "Armenian" is. I've met people with different heritages which don't know anything about it, for them is only a last name you recall from time to time or when you want to sound cool

                That's a lot worse. In that case the person is no longer Armenian, and shouldn't be featured in this section (if that were the case).

                  Re: Karina Pasian

                  There you go again Armanen-bashing people you know nothing about just because they are only part armenian. I get the feeling you hate part armenian people more then non armenians - especialy if they are part black and part armenian it seems. The onlly things you know about this girl is what she looks like and that she can sing really well but hey that doesnt stop you from reaching your usual conclusions and writing her off as a totally useless individual regarding anything armenian. Maybe if people like you and mos didnt act like this then more people would want to explore their armenian roots but when they see people like you they will quickly want to forget that part of their heritage. The attitude you and some others here have is a big part of why armenians assimilate and why some people feel uncomfortable moving or even visiting Armenia. We Armenians are not the Chinese-we do not have a surplus of people we can simply write off and no one gave you or anyone else such a right.

                    Re: Karina Pasian

                    Man she has a voice.........siroun balikess.

                    She doesn't speak Turkish. She used to sings the words during choir as she heard them. I am sure she knows more Armenian now than Turkish words. You guys should hear it, she makes Turkish sound really good.

                    Her interview

                    http://www.djbooth.net/index/intervi...erview-0602081

                    From the interview:


                    DJ Booth: What did you go about doing, during that whole process of learning the different languages?

                    Karina: Well, my first language [was] Russian. I just had an open ear to different languages, and when I was young I was in the choir, and in the choir we used to sing different languages like Hebrew and German. So, just growiní up in a really diverse environment with Russian vocal coaches, and just beiní able to adapt to the different languages was just something that came a little natural.

                    DJ Booth: Out of English, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Arabic, Turkish, and French, which was the hardest to learn?

                    Karina: The hardest I would say would be Arabic and Turkish Ė itís like a whole different scale, and the pronunciation are different.

                    DJ Booth: Could you give us a little taste of one of them?

                    Karina: Of Turkish?

                    DJ Booth: Sure!

                    Karina: I can do that. [singing in Turkish]

                    DJ Booth: That was beautiful. Now comes the translation part; what did you just sing?

                    Karina: The translation?

                    DJ Booth: In English.

                    Karina: I havenít sang that song in a long time; I donít really remember what Iím singing.

                    DJ Booth: You know what? It doesnít matter, Ďcause it was beautiful.

                    Karina: [laughter]
