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.

    ARMENIA WILL ASSIST US


    06.09.2005 06:42

    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ «Armenia is ready to provide the necessary assistance to the US Government due to the consequences of the hurricane,» Armenian FM Vartan Oskanian stated at a joint news conference with OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Slovenian FM Dimitrij Rupel. In his words, today the US Embassy in Armenia will provide the list of what is necessary for the Katrina hurricane victims. As the minister noted, at the moment the US needs money to the most, and Armenia is ready to provide both financial and professional assistance to the US to the best of its abilities. In the Minister's words, rescuer teams, physicians and other specialists will depart from Armenia for the US in case of need.

    Armenia Allots $200,000 in Assistance to Victims of Katrina Hurricane

    Armenia Allots $200,000 in Assistance to Victims of Katrina Hurricane



    Yerevan, September 9, Armenpress: The Armenian government approved on Thursday $200,000 in assistance to victims of Hurricane Katrina. Deputy foreign minister Arman Kirakossian said the money will be released from government's reserve fund and will be transferred on a special US government bank account early next week.

    Kirakosian said it will take the US government a long time to recover the area hit by the disaster, adding also that the Armenian government is ready to provide another assistance, should the US government ask for it. He said Armenia had offered rescuers, doctors in the first days of the disaster. He said though Armenia's assistance is modest and symbolic in view of the magnitude of damages assessed at around $100 billion, but 'it is very important for Armenia to demonstrate its solidarity with the people of USA, because they were among the first nations to rush to help Armenians in the aftermath of 1988 earthquake that destroyed northern parts of the country."

    He also recalled that Armenia has been one of the world's leading per-capita recipients of U.S. economic assistance that has totaled $1.6 billion since its independence. In a related development, Archbishop Khajag Barsamian, Primate of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church in the USA, issued a new directive to local parish leaders on September 7, further outlining relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina.

    In the directive, the Primate asked local parishes to conduct two special plate collections during services on September 11 and 18. Half of the money raised will go towards relief efforts being conducted by Church World Service and the other half will go directly to the Armenian Church of Baton Rouge to be distributed to parishioners in the New Orleans area as needed.

          RA FM Deputy Didn’t Say Armenia Won’t Provide Humanitarian Assistance to Pakistan

          12.10.2005 06:52 GMT-08:00
          /PanARMENIAN.Net/ The statement arrogated to Armen Bayburdian, who allegedly said that Armenia will not provide humanitarian assistance due to the earthquake that struck the country last week, does not correspond to reality, RA MFA Spokesman Hamlet Gasparian informed. In his words, Armen Bayburdian never made such a statement. To remind, yesterday some Armenia media spread information saying that Pakistan has not requested humanitarian assistance from Armenia. The Armenian Deputy FM allegedly reminded that no diplomatic relations were established between Yerevan and Islamabad.
