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.


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.

    -- Film Narrated by System of a Down's Serj Tankian;
    Won Praise of Award-Winning Director Atom Egoyan

    WASHINGTON, DC - "Armenia, a Country under Blockade," a powerful
    documentary film on the impact of Turkey's blockade of Armenia was
    featured at the recently concluded Myrtle Beach International Film
    Festival, and has been chosen as an official selection for the
    upcoming "Golden Apricots," Yerevan's International film festival,
    which will take place between July 12 and 17th, reported the
    Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).

    Narrated by System of a Down lead vocalist Serj Tankian and
    directed by Diran Noubar, the 52-minute documentary film describes,
    in compelling images and through first-hand accounts, the human
    impact of Turkey's decade-long, illegal blockade of Armenia. It
    has been met with critical acclaim, including a standing ovation at
    the Cannes Festival's film market held earlier this year. Academy
    Award nominee Atom Egoyan (1997-The Sweet Hereafter) has called
    "Armenia, a Country under Blockade" a "very worthy and important

    The timing of the film's release, on the eve of the European
    Union's membership negotiations with Turkey, sparked a sharp
    reaction from Ankara, and interest on the part of Europeans
    troubled by the prospect of accepting a member state that so
    flagrantly violates international law. The film was shot entirely
    in Armenia.

    "Diran Noubar's powerful work is bringing the story of Armenia -
    and the brutal impact of Turkey's illegal blockade - to the
    attention of vast new international audiences," said Aram
    Hamparian, Executive Director of the ANCA. "We encourage Armenian
    Americans to watch this documentary - and just as importantly - to
    share it with their local elected officials, to arrange screenings
    for civic groups, and to encourage its broadcast by local
    television stations."

    The film will be shown twice at the Golden Apricots, on July 12th
    at 5:00 pm and again on July 13th at 11:00 am at the Cinema House
    at Moskva Movie Theater in Yerevan. For further information,
