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.

          Now that the coup failed, the sultan will be picking his revenge left and right.
          The fear is in him now, he will reign like Stalin with suspicion and will persecute worse.
          If you think he used to be a psycho, wait and see what will come out of him soon. Just give him few weeks to re-inflate himself.

              If this coupe is already collapsing then I would suspect that it was all a set up. Military commanders do not make plans that fail so quickly. This has a potential of catapulting a unpopular leader back to popularity and legitimacy. I suspect there is more to this and we will see huge changes in Turkey in many ways.

                  I thought the same thing. Came on too strong to suddenly fizzle like that. How do police combat military equipment? Looks like a staged act to reinvigorate the jerk and to divert attention from him and his families criminal activities.
                  A beak up with USA leaves him isolated but will rise his popularity at home I think. I hope there is an acrimonious fallout with USA.

                    unbelievable. A circus act. Military leaders of the 2nd largest army in Europe are not stupid enough to stage a coup with <1000 soldiers taking over non-strategic bridges, bombing random buildings with a single helo, and not capturing the PM who was hanging out at a villa on the sea that could have been leveled with one bomb.

                    oh, and letting him fly in an unprotected jet right back to istanbul airport in the very middle of the "coup" with every amateur internet flyboy able to track the altitude and location. Surely that helo could have shot down that little plane, in the air or certainly on the ground?

                    Ridiculous. He just orchestrated his way to mass purge of the military, and islamized the remnant of Turkish society. He will pressure Aliyev to do similar.

                    Our Sultan neighbor will now be even more trouble, I'm afraid.

                      Do you guys think that with more powerful erdogan there may be more tension with Russia's Syria policy?
                      There is allready tension building up between turkey and US.
                      I am not speaking about problems with EU and Germany also.
                      This does not look very good for situation in Caucasus. Abviousely erdogan commands a large public support and he is going to solidify and pursue his policies stronger.
