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.

    Thanks for the insight Cartharsis, I mostly agree with it.

    In case anyone is interested, the Mamikonian-Chinese myth has been debunked already. Here is a forum post about it .

          Umm... No.
          LOL, I was just going to ask if I was the only one who wasn't terribly excited about this film.

          So you've seen some parts of the actual movie? I would really like to know if audiences will walk away from the film with an understanding of how the Battle of Avarayr "shaped the course of Western civilization"?

            I don't believe it's a movie. I'm under the impression it's a miniseries.

            I haven't seen anything beyond the trailer, which is enough.

              I saw the trailer when it came out and I love it...............this is the type of publicity we need Hollywood style, even if it is low budget or what not.

              I canít wait for it to come out.

                  I read in one of the press releases that it is being projected to cost $ 60 million. If so, I think this in and of itself makes the whole venture even more burdensome in terms of responsibility towards Armenian history and most importantly the 'message' that the film will project to Armenians and non-Armenians alike.

                    Well they better get it right...........also I donít think that it needs to be accurate like a documentary as long as it shows us in a good light. The movie 300 was not historically perfectly correct now was it?

                    I must admit though the last movie made about AG I thought it was made by a Turkish film maker (I donít want to remember it, embarrassing).

                    I am glad that this movie will have nothing to do with AG. We need to change tactics. Everybody who is somebody in this world already knows the truth, I can say that with confidence. Armenians will always complain about accuracy, I donít care. I do care a lot about how none Armenians come out of it, that is the key.

                      I think there are many stories (including this one) that hardly need anything other then facts to make a good movie. Armenia long history provides many great scripts for good movies without the need to change anything.
