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.


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.

  • What are the borders of Nagorno-Karabakh?

    When we speak of N.K./Artsakh are we talking about all the area under Armenian control? or the just the province? and when the rest of the world talks about it what do they mean?

      Re: What are the N.K. borders?

      Glad you asked this question so that we can settle this because a lot of people do not know what Artsakh was, is and what it will be. This post is for historic Artsakh.

      Here is Artsakh from the 5th to 7th century, as part of one of the historic provinces of the Kingdom of Armenia.

      As you can see, the historic province of Artsakh has most of the current borders of NKR highlited in your map + areas to the north that currently lie in "Azerbaijan" and parts of modern-day Armenia. If you're wondering, Utik and Kambechan are also historic Armenian provinces and Utik includes the city of Gandzak, now under baboon occupation and known as Ganja.

      Here is Artsakh starting from the 9th century, now an Armenian Principality known as Khachen.

      Here, parts of Utik and Artsakh have merged but Gandzak remains out. Note the word "Azerbaijan" that appears erroneously, it's there not because an "Azerbaijan" existed but because Iran has a historic province of Azarbaijan from which the fake republic got its name from. This Azarbaijan is way more south than the current fake republic.

        Karabakh VS Nagorno-Karabakh VS Nagorno-Karabakh Republic

        Karabakh, or Artsakh, is as Vasbourakan noted divided into two: Lernayin and Tashdayin.

        Lernayin (Mountainous, Nagorny) is this:

        This also corresponds to the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast (NKAO), a Stalin made fictional border/oblast that divided Karabakh from Armenia and its entirety and reduced it to an enclave and gained its "mountainous" title. Tashdayin is everything surrounding this "Nagorno-Karabakh" that once was under our control.

        Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) is this:

        As you can see, there is a northern branch. This is the occupied province of Shahumian and as witnessed in the previous maps, it was always historically Armenian. So basically, Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is all the lands we liberated during the war + occupied Shahumian.

          Artsakh after the Treaty of Sevres or the "Wilsonian Armenian" border:

          Historic Artsakh is back within the Armenian borders.

            Current Situation

            Currently, what Artsakh is varies from person to person (UNFORTUNATELY).

            -Some people refer to NKR as only the enclave of the NKAO and this is the position favored by the international community. Often I see Armenian-made maps showing these borders + Armenia as being the Armenian world only which disturbs me.

            -For the NKR government, NKR is everything under their control + occupied Shahumian. This is the preferable position and is for what we should settle for... nothing less!

            -Lately, a compromise border they are discussing is the former NKAO + Lachin corridor (where the highway that links Armenia with NKR is). So for some people, this is NKR.

                Now that we know what Artsakh is, let's have a look at it from the inside.
                Map of the provinces of the former NKAO:

                Compare this with the following map which is NKR and its provinces. Each province is numbered. The areas with no stripes is Mountainous Artsakh. The areas with diagonal light-colored stripes are the liberated territories.The areas with horizontal dark-colored stripes are areas of Artsakh that remain under baboon occupation.

                1. Shahumian
                2. Mardakert
                3. Askeran
                4. Martuni
                5. Hadrut
