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.

  • The Ottomans

    Of all of Armenia's neighbors and occupying powers, the Ottomans have probably had the greatest effect on Armenian mentality, psychology, way of life etc. Even now, on a given day, thousands of Armenians all over the world will tell each other 14th century Turkish folk philospher/homorist Nasreddin Hodja's wisecrack stories

    Re: The Ottomans

    Ottomans have been reduced to a couch accessories now. Romans, Persians and apostles are of more import to Armenia's history than blood thirsty Ottomans. Too bad we could not build a wall like the Chinese..

    Hahaha...he said 'homo'ist.

    Armenia still exists, Ottomans are extinct. Get over it.

      Rememer, you were banned for violating the rules and you may be treading a thin line.

      Your thread essentially has no point so what is your purpose on these boards?

          This is not true if by Armenia you mean the modern Republic of Armenia. I'd say both the Russian and Persian empires have played a bigger role in that region's history.

          As for what was once called Ottoman or Turkish Armenia, well, I'm sure you know what happened.

            Here, I am going to give you an English lesson Lampron. Let's use 'Ottoman' in a sentence.

                both armenians and turks raised a common culture for several hundreds of years. notice the similarities between our music, cuisine etc. this doesn't mean that armenians were affected by turks or vice versa. it is a common culture to which both nations contributed.

                  Historically the Ottomans controlled the bulk of the Armenian nation. The Ottoman rule lasted much longer than the Persian or Russian. From 1870s onwards Armenian-Ottoman relations grew bad, but in the early days things were much better. The Sultan Mehmed II encouraged Armenians to move into Constantinople (Istanbul). I read that Armenians and Greeks were among physicians (doctors) of Ottoman Sultans and Pashas.
                  More research is needed on the centuries of Ottoman rule.

                    These good relations in the past are completely irrelevant to the situation in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which was a much different time. I don't see what Armenians' relations with an 11th century conquerer have to do with Turkish treatment of Armenians in the 20th century.

                    No, they simply worked harder. Armenians paid much higher taxes than Turks just because of their Christianity, and despite this they still had a much higher proportion of literate, educated and professional people in the Ottoman Empire.

                    Can you please share some of these world-famous wisecrack stories with us, since they are in such abundance?

                    Armenian government has followed the Persian model more or less since antiquity. Even today Armenian lands are split into Marz. As for Armenian literature and intellectual thought, it was mostly influenced by the Hellenistic thinkers and writers, as well as their own local innovations and traditions. It was also to a lesser extent influenced by Persian, and later European and Russian thinkers/writers. Can you please name some Ottoman/Turkish thinkers and/or writers which, as you claim, have made a major impact on Armenians?
