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 Club!

    So, as Siggie tries to put together a team of readers for her book club, perhaps we can also form a Film Club for those who are less intelligent. I'm kidding, of course, but this could easier for those are otherwise busy because watching a film takes much less time and effort. It's also quite accessible because of Netflix and other forms of renting.

    The goal is to pick a film collecively, we will all have a week or so to watch it, then come back in here and discuss it together. This is a great opportunity to come across films you otherwise would never bother to, and it allows us to participate in a group discussion.

    Perhaps, in the future, we could do a tie-in. If Siggie suggests a novel that has been adapted into a film, we could all read the source material first. I really doubt that would happen though because, let's face it, it's not going to happen.

    So, is anybody interested? If enough people are, we can start discussing what films to watch. Please, don't start recommending films just yet! It's best to see who is in so far, then begin discuss what kind of films to watch (genres, filmmakers) and take it from there.

    Who's in?

    Re: Film Club!

    I'm quite stupid to not have realized this earlier. So, instead of picking random films and decided upon them, I think it's best to come up with a list of members who are in, then we'll go in order and have each person recommend a film. We'll all go watch that film and come back within a week. If, for whatever reason, a person needs to recommend a film and he/she is not present, the next person can go ahead and give us a recommendation. You will always be allowed to sit out rounds, so if you're not around, we'll just go to the next person for a recommendation.

    For now, we can discuss what films we will be recommending, roughly. It's best to choose films none of us have seen, unless you really want to recommend a terrific film you have seen for others to go and watch it as well. I think it's best to recommend hidden gems or anything you have been dying to see.

    Who's in?

              Stop begging for more. This is enough. Ingrates should not be encouraged.

                Okay, so should I pick first? I guess we can go in order of members, starting with who signed up first. So, that's me, arteom, yourself, then ara. If anybody comes in later, they can just watch the film and chime in with their thoughts.

                I just hope you guys keep checking back to see what the films are. That's why I want more members, so if some of you guys forget or are too busy, we'll still have a lot of discussion.

                If I'm going first, I'll have to think about this for a while.

                    I haven't see that yet and have been meaning to. I'll go for that if you haven't seen it either.
