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.

    Commemoration Event Held In Sochi

    Gevorg Harutyunyan

    16.06.2006 17:11

    All 113 people on board of the A-320 plane of Armavia Company of
    Yerevan-Sochi flight died as a result of the crash in the Black Sea on
    May 3. Some of the relatives had difficulties with leaving for Sochi
    to participate in the commemoration ceremony to mark 40 days after
    the tragedy. Many were afraid to fly in a plane. The Presidency of
    Armenian-Russian and Armenian-Georgian Business Cooperation Association
    undertook the resolution of the complex issue.

    For 14 years the border between Georgia and Abkhazia has been closed,
    only international peacekeeping forces are allowed to move along
    the highway. An exception is made also for settlers of neighboring
    Georgian and Abkhazian villages. The tragic death of the passengers
    and crew of the A-320 upset not only our Russian colleagues, but
    also our Georgian and Abkhazian neighbors. The will of many of the
    relatives to participate in the commemoration ceremony could have
    stayed unfulfilled if the Russian, Georgian and Abkhazian authorities
    did not allow to travel via the car way.

    This exceptional; transportation of more than 70 people in three
    buses became possible due to the efforts of the Presidency of
    Armenian-Russian and Armenian-Georgian Business Cooperation

    Co-Chair of the Armenian side, MP Volodya Badalyan did not conceal
    that this unprecedented cooperation can serve as an impetus for
    reinforcement of interethnic peace.

    Before reaching to Sochi from Georgia throughout Abkhazian territory,
    on June 13 a commemoration liturgy was served at St. Gevorg Church
    of Tbilisi.

    The relatives of the victims reached the site of the tragedy 6
    kilometers away from the shore in the "Dagamis" catamaran. Very
    quickly the surface of the sea at the site of disaster was covered
    with a dense mass of flowers and wreaths. The next place of gathering
    was the newly constructed St. Sargis Church of Sochi, in the yard of
    which the memorial to victims will be erected.

      Armenian Plane ‘Did Not Malfunction Before Crash’


      The Armenian airliner that crashed into the Black Sea last month killing all 113 people aboard was intact, had its engines operating normally and had enough fuel to land, a Russian commission said Monday.

      The Armavia Airbus A-320 was under manual control of its pilots up to the moment of the May 3 pre-dawn catastrophe near the Russian port of Sochi, the Transport Ministry commission investigating the disaster said in a statement. The commission, which based its conclusions after analyzing the plane's "black box" flight recorders, did not attribute blame for the crash.

      Prosecutors have dismissed the possibility that terrorists brought the plane down, and officials point to rough weather or pilot error as the likely cause. Armavia officials have suggested that air traffic controllers were at least partly to blame, giving the pilots improper instructions.

      The commission said it planned further analysis of the recorders and computer modeling to determine a cause. The flight was en route to Sochi from the Armenian capital, Yerevan.
