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.

    I visited 150 of them yesterday. And they all, even the kittens, talked more sense than you ever have.

        BTW, if this forum's avatar size could be bigger, and my avatar were about 30 pixels taller - enough to see its eyes - then you would see that it is a Van kedisi.

            Re: I'm going to Armenia in like 5 hours

            Watup guys, since I have internet (56K though) at the moment, I wanna give you guys an update as to what I'm doing:

            Currently, I'm staying in Bangladesh (Chorort Guygh) with my Horkur and cousins - I'll be staying here most of the time of my stay - and we have internet here so I'll try to post as much as i can - but uploading pics might be annoying under 56k so dont expect too many of those. I'll upload tons once I come back though. Anyway, this part of Yerevan ALWAYS has water and electricity and all that nice stuff we're used to - but I've visited my morkurs' houses and the water their is either weak or by the hours. Electricity is also sometimes a problem but that issue seems to have gotten 50x better since the last time I was here. I'm not annoyed or discomforted by all this xxxx though, I'm actually kind of used to it. In Metsamor (Hoktemberyan), where I was born (and will go to visit in a few days) we had water and electricity issues the worst. Anyway, I've been to Erevan alot, and I've been to the Guygh's alot too. The contrast in Yerevan is huge - you see bentley's and hummers next to old soviet 06's. You also see million dollar mansions in the middle of poverty stricken areas. But Yerevan has gotten ALOT better, taxi's are everywhere and they show up at ur house within 1 minute of ur call. The taxi service here is actually really impressive. People here seem to have really deshgo faces, but once you talk to them they treat you like gold. The men dont wear shorts and the women dont leave the house without makeup and doing their hair. Most dress pretty nicely and with class but there are some lost souls - like everywhere. Anyway, I've seen alot of our youth and I have to say the youth here (in terms of going out and stuff, having a good night out) is more active than in NY. 90% of the pedestrians at night at the restaraunts are all young in their late teens. Its nice to see a change like that, it wasnt like that 4 years ago. But if the businesses in Yerevan are growing, that means the people have money to benefit from the businesses - especially things like restaraunts and clubs. Yerevan is, for me, THEE place to live with no doubt. I'm deffinitly coming back to live here after school. For anybody coming to Armenia this summer, and if your staying in Yerevan, you will undoubtebly have the time of your life. You wouldn't believe the new places they've built here, its top of the line xxxx.

            As for the outskirts of the town, where I also went, and the rural areas. Nothing has changed - you sometimes see the contrast with new buildings or new cars and factories, but generally, its the same. Poverty stricken and mellow. Strangely enough, the people back at Guygh are more pleasant and generous than the people in the city. Us and our neighbors have remodeled our dachas and they look amazing, but the about 80% of the Guygh's are in ruins. I seriously dont know how the people here survive. I think their persistent farmers - they eat what they grow and buy clothes with the little money they make selling food in the urban areas.

            I've seen most of my family and I dont know how I'm gonna handle leaving them. I'm deffinitly coming back for a month and a half next summer. Well right now I'm eating some Armenian made Lamanjo and some Tan. Die in envy you foolish odars .

            Anyway, I'm gonna be staying here for 2 months and will probably visit everything and everywhere. In a few days, I'll be going to Xapan where my cousin (whos a commander in the army) is situated in with his base. And i'll be chillen with our soldiers, I prolly wont be able to take pictures, I asked him about it, but I think i can get some shots of the soldiers and me - just not the weapons and stuff. I'll be going to Xarabagh later on, if you guys have any questions or would like me to visit anywhere or anything special, or photograph anything for you - post it here and I'll try to see what I can do.

            De lav, yes pokva

            Quick funny story: I tipped the taxi guy 200 dram and he was like "wtf are u doing, we dont do that xxxx here." lol. BYE.
