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.

    How? If you mean it will have to wait until Turkey officially recognises the genocide then you will have a long wait. It might take decades, it might take centuries - then again it might never even happen.

    Is this what your waiting for? I mean there are individual Turks that do recognise the Armenian genocide. They maybe small in number but they are growing. As Anonymouse was saying it is hard for Turks to voice their opinions and views a sensitive issue such as this one. What makes it even harder is the official position of the Turkish government. After it lied to the nation for 90 years how do you expect it to suddenly turn around and admit to the genocide just like that? I have the feeling that the Turkish government is going to let the people decide (as well as the government itself starting to "look more deeply" into the issue).

      Re: Will Armenians always hold a hatred towards the Turks?

      Yes, on a national scale I cannot see how friendship between Armenia and Turkey (and Armenians and Turks) is possible without closure in terms of the genocide and it's recognition.
      That said, I don't see why an Armenian and a Turk cannot be friends provided they are both on the same level of thinking in terms of what happened in 1915.
      Personally I have nothing but respect and admiration for people like Taner Akcam, and him being a Turk has no negative impact on my opinion, in fact his opinions and views combined with the fact that he is in fact Turkish form the basis of my feelings. And that is the key. The hope for any form of positive interaction, or whatever you wish to call it, between us, lies with the Turkish people, not the Turkish government. Armenians share an equal responsibility. Will we be willing to forgive and move on eventually? What will happen if and when Turkey accepts it's past?
      Ultimately it's up to the younger generations on both sides and I believe, sadly, the youth on both sides are being brought up with too much hate.

              Can any Armenians understand why genocide recognition amongst the Turkish population is going to be a VERY slow process?

                    Re: Will Armenians always hold a hatred towards the Turks?

                    I think Armenians will not dislike Turks as much if the genocide is recognized. There is still the issue of hurting generations of Armenians after the genocide with denial. We are suffering still.

                    And remember, we are the victims... not you. So we can change our attitude and like of Turks whenever we are ready.

                      Well considering I am a barska-hye (from Iran), I'm not really a victim of anything. My only hatered (or dislike) is towards those that act like idiots and repeat everything they have heard from their government and other idiots like them without thinking a bit or reading something other than what is force fed to them.
