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.

  • History of Kilis

    I have a book that my father gave me on the Armenians of Kilis, located in what is now the Kilis Province of Turkey. The book was published in Beirut in 1969 and is quite detailed. In addition to the history of Kilis (until 1968) it contains things like anecdotes, proverbs, loanwords from Armenian into the Turkish spoken by the inhabitants of Kilis, a count of how many Armenian people with origins in Kilis were living in the world at the time (9,470 in 1968), as well as short biographies of prominent Kilis Armenians living in the Armenian SSR, Lebanon, and Syria.

    I want to translate parts of the book into English and put it up here (since I don't have the time or money to maintain a website). I only hope I won't be violating any copyright laws...

    Who's the author, maybe you can send a letter request.

    Second, it is violently opposed; and
    Third, it is accepted as self-evident."

      Also, when was the book copyrighted? Who holds the copyright?

      P.S. I think the "Book Reviews and Articles" Forum is a better fit for this topic. I'm moving there...

By the efforts of both Aleppo Association and Beirut branch Kilis Armenian Memorial Book has published in 1969.(The publishers were priest Khoren Nersesian and the lawyer Hampartsoum Berberian). The Association has headquarters and it has split in two in 1995.The first as Kilis Young Armenian Association, while the second as Kilis Compatriotic Association.

                I'm going to start translating it and posting it on Blogspot. I'll credit the authors and hopefully they won't have any problems with it.

                Would ArmenianGenocide.com be willing to host a website on Kilis?

                    Same for almost all the post-genocide compatriotic associations. The many now obscure and forgotten publications that these survivors produced to record for posterity their destroyed homelands do need to be translated into English to reach a new and wider audience.
