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.

    I'm not talking about the modern country of Syria that has been in existence for less than a century - why would we use modern borders to understand a 12000 year old site? I am talking about the geographical region that is called Syria. Urfa is in Northern Syria.
    So 12000 years ago, you're sure that the region was called Syria. If you take a look at the holes that were drilled in stone at the Stone Henge site in (modern day Armenia) there are similar rocks with holes drilled into them at the Hattusa site near Ankara (the fake capital of Turkey since Istanbul is really the capital)

    Take a look at the drilled holes from 2:30-3:00

If you are strictly following your own ideology, it isn't important that Newgrange was built by people long before anyone who could reasonably be called "British" (or Irish) existed.
    It still is part of the British Empire, the people are just in denial. Assuming you weren't born via immaculate conception, your ancestors came from somewhere. They might have not been referred to as British or Irish but they were people who eventually formed to create Britain or Ireland.

      Do you think geographical regions move about on a human timescale?

        So why are you calling it Syria? Were you around 12000 years ago (or perhaps you consider yourself some sort of feline god)? Anyways, like you said, it hasn't been carbon dated (which is hardly accurate anyways in terms of a humans lifetime) but it does give a general time as to when these ruins were built.

          I'm not going to discuss anything more with you about this subject. You seem to have the educational level of a small child. Either that or fanaticism has so warped your understanding that you can no longer comprehend things correctly. If its the latter, then I see your type so often in Turkey. They are the type that start to foam at the mouth when they see a map of the Roman empire with "Armenia" marked on what their fanaticism sees only as Turkey.

          The world is divided into distinct geographical units that have shaped the histories and cultures of the humans inhabiting those regions. Historians and archaeologists have given names to those regions: it could be the Iberian peninsula, the British Isles, Scandinavia, Syria, Mesopotamia, Armenian plateau, etc. These regions existed 12,000 years ago, they existed before humans settled there.

            Very good Bell. So point out a map which identifies the regions of the world in which "historians and archeologists" believe are carved in stone.

            As for Urfa (Ourfa, Urhai) whatever you want to call it, the town was populated by people of several ethnicity's prior to the Armenian Genocide.

              You are making me think you actually ARE a cretin. Of course they are "carved in stone" - it is the very rock of a region, and how the earth's climate has reacted with it over time, that MAKES geographical regions geographical regions!

                The stones stand as soldiers on guard.

                Armenia is the birthplace of the zodiac, and perhaps the beginning of navigation and the concept of time.....either that or the Aliens made it.

                  I apologize for making you think, I know it's not something you do often.

                      Thanks for the link Eddo!
                      For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
                      to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.
