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.

  • Help with writing an Armenian name in Armenian

    I would be most grateful for any assistance that might be rendered towards helping me find out how to write an Armenian name in Armenian. The name I am trying to spell is Kazarian. I don't know if it makes a difference but it would be with the Western Alphabet.

    Once I discover how to write that in Armenian, I would like to find a script or somewhat ornamental (some type of calligraphy) way to write it.

    I am involved in an art project and would appreciate a little help if possible.

    Can the folks here help me with that?

    It would either be Գազարեան or Քազարեան. Perhaps someone more familiar with this name will chime in.
    We can help you with the script as well once we figure out the spelling.

    In the meantime here's a thread about that...

      Thank you for the prompt reply. The first letter is very critical due to the nature of the project. I look forward to any help that others may provide.

        If you are Eastern Armenian go with Կազարեան. If you are Western Armenian, go with Քազարեան.

        Kazarian seems to be a distortion of Ghazarian which is written as Ղազարեան.

          Dear Fed jan, I just wish to thank you again, because if it wasn't for you I still wouldn't be able to write my Armenian fonts in here. Thanks again for showing me the way.

            Thank you Fed. It is definitely Western. What I know is that on the immigration papers (Application for Certificate of Arrival), it was spelled Ghazarian. When the family immigrated to the US, they couldn't write or read English, so it was written by an American immigration person - you know, they ask you what your name is and you pronounce it, and they write it the way it sounds. So I don't look at that as a credible source.

            Is there any way to be sure? Kazarian is a common name in America - is it possible that they are ALL distorted?

            By the way, my most humble thanks for the assistance here.

                They are similar with the sekond being a courcer sound. They are also pronounced differently in western and eastern dialects.

                  This makes a lot of sense. Գազարեան is also a pretty funny choice as it'll make you sound like you are from a family of carrots
