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.

  • Add the kardashians to the famous Armenian section's description

    While Kirk Krikorian, Dr. Kevorkian, Cher, and Andre Agassi are all fine, the only person in that group who can still truly be called a celebrity is Cher and even that's pushing it, she maybe still be an icon to some but most people don't care.

    Being a celebrity doesn't mean you've done something special or are an ideal role model, it means people know who you are even if it's for all the wrong reasons.

    And Kirk is and will only be a celeb to Armenians 98% of people have no idea who he is, Andre agassi is a has been and any non armo under 20 will have no idea who he is. Same goes for Dr death.

    The only true celebs we have now are the kardashians ( even if we wished we had someone else) and maybe Charles Aznavour though he's not really known outside French speaking countries.

    So embrace the Kardashians b/c in the end it's better to have them represent the community than no one else at all
    Due to budget cuts the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

      The problem with your statement is that you're assuming that American pop culture is the be all, end all. Every region of the world had its own celebrities. Someone whose famous in China might not even be heard of in North America. Celebrities are also generational meaning while many people of young age may not have heard of Kirk Kerkorian, he is extremely well known to any educated and business oriented people of the last generation. There was a time where his name was in print in every news stand. Eva Rivas for example was recently in a publication of Maxim in Russia. So what you're referring to is regional celebrities vs global celebrities. While it is true that American media is exported to other countries while foreign media rarely has an influence in America, I think the internet and social networking will increasingly break that barrier.

        I only heard of Cher and the Kardashians. Who are these others ones? (No, i'm not being sarcastic. I've literally never heard of them.)

          Cher, Agassi and Dr. Kevorkian are known on this side of the Atlantic too. I've never heard of Kerkorian and the Kardashians.

                Andre Agassi was a tennis player. His father was an Armenian from Iran, original family name Aghassian.

                  FOR THE LAST TIME, Kardashians are not Armenian!!!! Why cant people get that into their heads!!

                  First off, if we are talking about blood they are only 1/4, second of all they have grown up in a American household with american values, third they know absolutely nothing about armenian culture or armenia. They are not Armenian! They are just some American prostitutes glorified by the West because w-hores like them have great respect in America. They have nothing to do with us, they are just American scum.
