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.

  • Re: Poetry Corner

    Here are two poems that I've carried down the road with me for over 40 years and a poem I wrote after reading Vagharshapats intro: (1) Across the fields of yesterday/ He sometimes comes to me/ A little lad just back from play/ The lad I used to be/ And yet he smiles so wistfully/ Once he has crept within/ I wonder if he hopes to see/ The man I might have been. Thomas S. Jones Jr. Thi next one is by an unknown Author and is said to be Abraham Lincolns favorite poem ---- Tell me ye winged winds / That round my pathways roar/ Do ye not know someplace/ Where mortals weep no more/ The loud winds dwindled/ To a wispers low/ And sighed for pity/ As they answered no.
    After reading Vagharshapat describe himself as ( like a mud) I wrote this poem: Like a mud, where the grass grows so rich and green/ Like a mud, where the flowers bloom so vibrant in color/ Like a mud ,so teeming with life/ Like a mud, where the gold is found so valued and precious/ Yes, you are like a mud/ Gods mud.

      The Giant
      I saw a giant
      Walking toward me
      He was striding so purposefully
      I shouted to giant
      So far above
      Where are you going
      And where are you from
      I'm going to Hay
      I've come from above
      And why are you going
      To the land of Hay
      If I may ask
      On this very day
      I'm going to visit the High today
      For as you may know
      I'm a friend of Hay
      Have you not heard
      I cried from below
      The High have been killed
      And Hay is destroyed
      Few there are left
      From days of old
      The giant kept walking
      So purposefully
      Toward masif mountain
      Standing so majestically
      I shouted to the giant
      So far above
      What is your name
      And what shall you do
      The giant roared
      My name is Merdis
      And I have unfinished business to do
