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.

  • Museum of Tolerance Genocide Exhibit


    The Armenian American community's disappointment with the Museum of
    Tolerance's past failure to properly address the Armenian Genocide culminated in April of this year when members of the Armenian Youth Federation held a dramatic six day hunger strike in front of the Museum. That protest drew local and national media attention.

    In March of 2003 Museum Director Liebe Geft sent an email form letter to many ANCA WebFaxers that fell short of addressing the Armenian American community's concerns about the Museum. Most insulting was that the letter she issued avoided the direct use of the proper term- the Armenian Genocide - to describe Turkey's systematic destruction
    of its Armenian population between 1915 and 1923. In her correspondence, Geft also failed to respond to the request for a full explanation as to why the Armenian Genocide is absent from the

    In an article that appeared in The Los Angeles Times earlier this year, the
    issue of the absence of the Armenian Genocide in the Museum was raised. In the article, written by Times staff writer Christopher Reynolds, the point was made that "The museum has backed away from its own pledges to include the first genocide of the 20th century -- the Armenian genocide of 1915 -- as a part of its permanent exhibition. That genocide
    is effectively absent, some of those critics suggest, because of a 21st
    century political alliance between Jewish leaders and the Turkish government whose predecessors carried out that genocide."
    The Times quoted Ardashes Kassakhian, ANCA-WR's director of governmental relations as saying, "It's kind of ludicrous, if you're going to talk about the 20th century, not to mention it. It's like teaching
    U.S.history and beginning with the Civil War."

    The ANCA- WR and the AYF encourageArmenian Americans to visit the Museum of Tolerance by July 1st to view the Museum's new exhibit on the Armenian Genocide and learn whether the Museum of Tolerance has truly honored its pledge to establish a proper exhibit covering the first genocide of the 20th century.
    Individuals who would like more information on the Museum or directions
    are encouraged to call the ANCA-WR at
    (818) 500-1918.
