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.

    If it will be created as a consultative body, with clearly outlined and limited functions, it wouldn't fail; it will strengthen and enhance Armenian government representation throughout the world. Let’s see further developments and its clean cut idea final description.

      There, I fixed it for you.

      Come on this has been long in coming and it must be eventually done.......I hope it picks up.

      The Armenian government (not much fault to them) takes no action (or give guidance) on Diaspora and just leaves it a each individual Armenians or so called community representatives to do what they can, which by nature can never be efficient.
      Everybody is worried about corruption be it in Armenian government or some Diaspora organization but if you don’t do what you know must be done then nothing will ever improve.

      A united Armenian Diaspora (if we ever get it) that keeps Armenians involved would be a force to reckon with that our enemies would fear and be helpless to do anything about it because it is scattered with real political pull and Armenian voice representation in each host country channeling all resources through as one force maybe one day in harmony with Armenia.

          Sounds like Serj has taken their advices seriously.....channel the large Diasporan influence into one effective force targeted at our cause, to reach critical mass, to establish an a think tank and take advantage of all our resources that are getting waisted in Diaspora where it can turn into a powerful force to better Armenia. To have unity with the Armenian government and have real representation of Diaspora in the Parliament

          To built that two lane highway bridge from LA to Hawaii.....no wait.

            Hey here is a challange for ya- name one democratic establishment free of corruption. Im sorry did u say u cant think of any? So let me get this straight then- the diaspora who has been throwing resources away by supporting strategies which have made polititions and lobiests wealthy while providing nothing tangible in return is now going to create a more efficient mechanism to waist their remaining and future resources. Yup that realy does sound like a idea the diaspora would come up with alright.

                It seems that part of the reason the Diaspora Minister announced plans on creating an upper chamber in Armenia's legislature is to prempt this project. Smart move by Sargsyan and co, also a better idea than the DAD.
                For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
                to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

                  It is the DAD's outcome! And it is DAD that will elect the upper house/chamber representatives.

                    That is to be seen. The point is that if DAD or something like it comes into being, it should be part of Armenia, not separate from it, and not another diaspora org. It should have some deeper connections with the Homeland.

                      "It should have some deeper connections with the Homeland. "
                      I think this is a important point and i believe that this and other organizations should not only have such contact with the homeland but further promote it among its own members and in the general diaspora.
                      "Name one human made institution that is free of corruption, as long as man is involved you will have corruption. "
                      This is mostly true but no other institutions except perhaps the religious ones do it so well.
