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.

    "Azerbaijan should change its name for North Azerbaijan, which corresponds to the reality" (??? According to who? H.),
    I hope someone tells Mr Qudrat Baboonquliyev that he can sign up to this forum and start debating!

If Turkey played a central role in the creation of the entity called 'Nakhichevan', why is it surprising that Turkey should have an interest in creating a border with it?

      Hellektor's thesis is that Azerbaijan is an artificial country, with a name that has no relevance to the geographic area it occupies, and is using primary sources, many of them non-Armenian, to illustrate this point.
      "They were seized during Kemals' attack on Armenia in 1920". So you are agreeing with me, and recognising that Hellektor's statement (that the border with Nakhchivan resulted from a 1930s land exchange) is wrong?

      Hellektor is a loud-mouthed, foul-mouthed racist - the "thesis" of that individual is worth nothing. Nakhchivan exists because by 1920 the overwhelming majority of its population was not Armenian. No fantasy from Hellektor is going to change that hard fact, or the hard fact of the very real existence of the republic of Azerbaijan.

        I suggest you read this (don't just look at the map, read the text). If you're going to make such bold Azeri-friendly claims so confidently, I suggest you educate yourself first. The population of Nakhichevan was bout 60-70% Muslim, while the rest was Armenian.

        Your compatriot, Hellektor, may be foul mouthed, but that's no reason to ignore his book or his arguments. He almost uses his foul mouth in a satirical way. He makes very good points, and I can defend most of his stance very well.

            70% IS overwhelmingly not Armenian. Maybe you should educate yourself first in maths, percentages, and statistics. And after that, and most difficult of all for you, educate yourself in reality.

              Yes everyone here agrees that Nakhichevan by 1920 had a non-Armenian majority, but how did that come about? - an important question!

              Yes everyone agrees that there is a state called Azerbaijan to the east of Armenia/Karabakh. But even the Tatars recognize that there never was a country called Azerbaijan until 1918. We know that some years later they re-invented themselves as 'Azeris'. All very intriguing stuff! Which is where researchers like Hellektor come in

                Discussing with bell-the-cat is useless. He is an anti-Armenian racist. The current Republic of Armenia, Artsakh, Nakhichevan and Eastern Turkey are the homeland of the Armenian nation. This is a fact. The reality is that Nakhichevan, Artsakh, and Eastern Turkey are under occupation under the pretext of these fake international treaties, recognized by the criminal and biased organization called the UN.

                If I am not mistaken, in the Armenian constitution we see Western-Armenia as a part of our nation.

                  You need to relax a bit, and clear this anti-Armenian cloud from your mind for a moment. You clearly didn't read this.

                  North of Nakhichevan was populated by Armenians, and ruled, with no interruption until 1923, by Armenia. I'm not talking about the city of Nakhichevan, nor the entirety of the province (which had its Armenian population removed in the 17th/18th century btw), but the parts that undisputedly belonged to Armenia to the North (Sharur and parts of Sadarak), which were taken away from Armenia in order to connect Turkey to Nakhichevan/Azerbaijan. Keep in mind that the entire province was under the control of Armenia at the time when both Armenia and Azerbaijan were taken over by the USSR. Considering a region like NK, which had a 94% Armenian population, could be ceded to Azerbaijan, why is it that a region, historically part of Armenia, and very recently part of the Armenian Oblast, with 30-40% Armenian population, can't be part of Armenia (i.e.: not even the parts that were exclusively Armenian like the North)?

                  Second, the reality is that 30-40% Armenians makes almost half of the population! The fact that they disappeared from Nakhichevan BEFORE the NKR conflict makes it clear as day what type of policies Azerbaijan pursued (which Hellektor talks about). No Azerbaijani/Tatars were ethnically cleansed from Armenia until the NKR conflict, at a time when even if Armenia tried to be the nicest they possibly could to them, they still would have escaped to Azerbaijan.

                    .
                    you make a good point. Another point: no-one is talking about the rights of the Armenian refugees
                    who were forced out of Nakhichevan, while we constantly read about the right of return of the Tatar minority to Karabakh

                      Spitak jan, do you have a link that gives out figures for the Armenian population of Sharur and Sadarak or the figures of Armenian population per administrative division in Nakhichevan?
