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.

  • Smells and memories...

    What is the relationship between certain aromas, smells etc xxxx like that and the trigger of certain figments of memories? I notice a lot that certain smells trigger certain emotions and leads a lot of times to nostalgia.

    I remember once walking through a side street in the city and I smelt some exhaust fume and it reminded me of a time in my childhood in Armenia when I smelt the exact same exhaust fume, it was pretty cool.

    Hehe, I could relate.

    When I went back to Armenia in 2000 for 2 months, I used this lipgloss with a particular smell. That particular smell opens the gates to nostalgia.

      Ain't it just grand?

      God I love those feelings.

      And it also gets you into a mode of deep thought and reminiscing.

        Indeed it does. I wouldn't give up those feelings for anything, even though they do make me feel so so sad.

              RASPBERRY BODY SPRAY! I took it with me on a trip to Yerevan and left it at my grandparents house just for this purpose. I knew my grandmother would think of me whenever she used it because it had become a permanent scent associated with me. As for me, the scent triggers memories from the trip. *sigh*

                  I was baking Christmas cakes one time, and the glorious smell of them baking has back so many memories of past Christmases -- some good, some bad, some happy, some sad -- but after all these years, the good and the bad and the happy and the sad have merged, and all my memories are of life, rich and exciting, and mostly fun.

                  I know a lot of you are having a hard time now, but I just wanted to tell you that when you're older, you'll look back, even at the worst times, and you'll have a smile for the old days, and be glad that you experienced 'life' in all it's variety.

                  By the way what a beautiful, positive thread Anonymouse. Keep up the good work!
