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.

  • Armenian Jet crashes in Black Sea w/ 100 aboard

    Plane Crashes in Russia With 100 Aboard 13 minutes ago

    Wreckage from the plane was spotted not far from the shoreline, but no passengers or crew have so far been found, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported, quoting Russian Emergency Situations spokesman Viktor Beltsov.

    The Airbus A-320, which belonged to the Armenian airline Armavia, disappeared from radar screens at about 2:15 a.m. local time, the RIA-Novosti agency reported. It was carrying 92 passengers including five children and a crew of eight, ITAR-Tass reported.

      An Armenian passenger jet with 100 people aboard crashed early Wednesday off the Black Sea coast shortly before it was to land in the Russian city of Sochi, Russian news agencies reported.

      Wreckage from the plane was found not far from the shoreline, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported, quoting Russian Emergency Situations spokesman Viktor Beltsov. The Interfax news agency reported that rescue teams at the site pulled the body of a woman from the sea.

      The Airbus A-320, which belonged to the Armenian airline Armavia, disappeared from radar screens at about 2:15 a.m. local time, the RIA-Novosti agency reported. It was flying from the Armenian capital Yerevan to Sochi, a resort city on the Black Sea in southern Russia, and was carrying 92 passengers including five children and eight crew members, ITAR-Tass reported.

      Rescuers found parts of the plane nearly four miles from the shore, along with empty lifejackets an indication that passengers had no time to put them on, ITAR-Tass quoted an unidentified local emergency official as saying. The rescuers were working in a driving rain, Russian news agencies reported.

        Plane holding 100 people crashes into Black Sea

        An Armenian Airlines aircraft holding 100 people has crashed into the Black Sea, according to Russian media reports.

        The aircraft was flying from Yerevan to the Black Sea resort of Sochi in southern Russia.

        According to Russia's RIA news agency, the emergencies ministry said parts of the plane could be seen on the surface of the water.

        The aircraft was an Airbus 320 and belonged to the Armenian airline Armavia. It was carrying eight crewmembers and 92 passengers, including five children, according to reports.

        The aircraft disappeared from radar screens at 2:15 A.M. local time, ministry spokesperson Viktor Beltsov told reporters.

        Rescuers dealing with hard rain managed to find wreckage about six kilometres from shore, but officials have not said whether any bodies have been found.

        In 2004, a Tu-154 airliner carrying 46 people crashed while on its way to the same resort city.

        Russian officials said the Tu-154 was the target of terrorism, after finding traces of explosives in the wreckage.

        A second aircraft -- a Tu-134 jet - crashed almost exactly at the same time, shortly after departing from Moscow's Domodedovo airport.

        Ninety people in total were killed

        More to come...

          Armenian jet crashes near Sochi

          Armenian jet crashes near Sochi
          BBC News

          A passenger airplane flying from Armenia's capital, Yerevan, to the city of Sochi in southern Russia has crashed over the Black Sea, officials say.
          The Airbus A-320 plane from Armenia's Armavia airline was carrying about 100 people, when it disappeared from radar screens about 0215 (2215GMT Tuesday).

          Debris has been seen in the sea, about 6km (four miles) from the coast, says Russia's Emergencies Ministry.

          Bad weather conditions are making the search for survivors difficult.

          Life jackets have been found in the accident area, although no people have been found, said deputy head of Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry, Viktor Beltsov.

          Among those on board were eight crew and five children, he said.

          Sochi is a popular Russian seaside resort, near the border with Georgia.

                  Armenia airline Armavia sets up HQ to probe Black Sea crash

                  10:02 | 03/ 05/ 2006



                  YEREVAN, May 3 (RIA Novosti) - Armenian air company Armavia said Wednesday it had set up an emergency headquarters to investigate a crash in the early hours of the day that is thought to have claimed 113 lives.

                  An Armavia A-320 came down about six kilometers off Russia's Black Sea coast while heading for an airport in Adler, which services the resort of Sochi. In all, 105 passengers and eight crew members were on board.

                  A spokesman for the company said the plane's crew had been informed about poor weather in Sochi and decided to land in the nearby capital of Georgia, Tbilisi. Air traffic controllers later told the crew that the weather had improved, but the weather was still bad when the plane approached Sochi. The pilot apparently decided to make a second circle after failing to land at the first attempt.

                  "At this moment it disappeared from radar screens," the spokesman said.

                  Rescuers said they recovered 25 bodies from the wreckage so far.
                  "All truth passes through three stages:
                  First, it is ridiculed;
                  Second, it is violently opposed; and
                  Third, it is accepted as self-evident."

                  Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

                    Well, no matter how intensly we like to grab each other's throats, Turks and Armenians seem to share two common things: Plenty of accidents and natural disasters.

                    Having worked in the aviation sector until 2003, I know pretty well that several Russian airports do not meet FAA or EAA requirements, but I know too little about this recent accident to blame xxxxy air control equipments.

                    Another thing to notice is that most civil airline pilots (with the possible exception of Germany) happen to be former air force pilots, so they do not want to complain about air traffic control of civil airports, fearing that it would hurt their reputation as tough pilots. After all, they have been trained to land almost anywhere under any weather condition.

                    Regardless of the reasons and causes, air crashes have a devastating effect on both the survivors and the relatives of the victims. I recently read that the survivors of January 2003 Turkish Airlines crash are still undergoing psychological treatment.

                    Finally, and most importantly, may God have mercy upon the souls of the perished.
