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.

  • What if Armenians were Muslim?

    I was just thinking, what would Armenia be like if Armenians were not Christian? But rather Muslim... hmm. What would Armenia's relation with Iran be like? Hmm...

    Interesting to think about! Sometimes I wish Iran was Christian because of the beauty of Armenian Christian architecture.

    Re: What if Armenians were Muslim?

    If Armenians adopted Islam, there would be no Armenians today. At least they wouldn't be called Armenians. We would be like on of those "extinct" ethnic groups, like Caucasian Albanians. The Armenian Church is the most important part of the Armenian identity, and with it we have been able to sustain our Armenian identity throughout the years, especially during our years of Islamic oppression.

      Yeah being absorbed by much larger Muslim groups is certainly a possible outcome.

        There would be Sunni, Shiite and Armenian Muslims.

            There wouldn't be Armenian Muslims, there would be no Armenians by name, we would be called something else, maybe Turks, maybe Azeris, who knows.

                there are still Kurds to this day, and the Europeans who became Muslim during the ottoman empire didn't become Turks after the empire fell, so you never know what could of happened

                Another question is, if we had stayed Zoroastrian, how would that affected the rise of Christianity and Islam in the middle east? Did we start a domino effect when we converted? would've Iran stayed zoroastrian if we had? How would that influenced the rise of christianity? and would Islam have ever came about if Christianity never got off the ground?

                Another question would be, what if all Turks, Arabs, Kurds, and Persians were orthodox Christian? would there still be Armenians today? or would we have still been absorbed?

                  Probably larger numbers of Armenians, at least those living farther from the homeland, would have been assimilated, yes. Or maybe they would have Armenized their neighbours. "Graecia capta ferum victorem cepit".

                    I am still baffled as to why you keep generating these types of threads.

                    For what purpose?


                    Why don't you start a thread

                    "WHAT IF I WAS A WOMAN"

                    "WHAT IF I WAS A MIDGET"

                    "WHAT IF I WAS AN ANT"

                    "WHAT IF I WAS A SNAKE"



                    ETC. ETC.

                    Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
                    Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
                    Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests
