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.

              not that I'm bragging or anything, but being familiar with a lot of language grammars and all, I think Arabic so far beats the hell out of even chinese when it comes to difficulty!
              Hal hatha kitaboun maftouroun ?
              Actually, this is one of the two sentences I know in arabic. The other one can't be said publicly
              "C'était un des principes fondamentaux de la doctrine Gradgrind que toute chose devait être payée. Personne ne devait jamais, en aucun cas, rien donner à qui que ce fût sans compensation. La gratitude devait être abolie et les bienfaits qui en découlent n'avaient aucune raison d'être. Chaque pouce de l'existence des humains, depuis la naissance jusqu'à la mort, devait être un marché réglé comptant. Et s'il était impossible de gagner le ciel de cette façon, cela signifiait que le ciel n'était pas un lieu régi par l'économie politique et que l'on n'avait rien à y faire."
              - D.i.c.k.e.n.s., "Temps Difficiles", 1854.

                I still don't know how to say Serial Killer, Pasa...dena, Necrophiliac, Necrophagiac, Zoophiliac in armenian.

                By the way, we don't care, but maybe the following question may raise some interest or simply be seen as redundant (being the topic of another existing thread - shame on me)
                In what extent and how the armenian language should evolve ?

                  And the thread has come back to life!

                  Here's a question...
                  In 1922, Stalin ordered that the armenian spelling changes to the "write how you hear" form. That is why Hayastantsis write the "yan" in their last name with a "hi" (that looks like a j), while diasporans right it with a "yech". Armenia's most famous linguist, Hratchia Ajarian never accepted this change, and that is why he always signed "Hratchia Ajar." from that day forward.

                  Many other changes occured of course, words like "ser" being written with a "yech" and not with an "e". This has caused misunderstandings between Armenia and Diaspora, as not only is their the dialect differences, but also a spelling one. It has also caused the armenian language to suffer, as new words cannot be created as the change of spelling has made the words lose its roots. This is why you see more and more english or russian words being used and accepted as "armenian".

                  Should Armenia bring back the REAL armenian spelling? They do not even want to talk about it....Anon, fire, flames (and other Armenia-born folks), your take on this would be much appreciated.
