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.

    Noyan Tapan News Agency, Armenia
    Nov 17 2006

    YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 17, NOYAN TAPAN - ARMENIANS TODAY. On the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey, the Embassy of Turkey
    to Slovakia addressed to the Bratislava Mayor's Office and district
    heads of Petrzalka with a demand to dismantle the khachkar (cross
    stone) dedicated to the Armenian Genocide which is placed on the
    right riverside of Danube.

    As the Noyan Tapan correspondent states from Bratislava, the
    editorial staff of the "Plus One" daily addressed to the OSCE and
    Armenian community chairman, Advisor to the RA Foreign Minister Ashot
    Grigorian, asking to explain the meaning of that application of the
    Turkish Embassy to Slovakia.

    As Ashot Grigorian, the Chairman of the Armenian community of Slovakia
    explained, the Embassy of Turkey demands to dismantle the khachkar
    placed in honour of the Slovakia National Council's adoption of
    the 2004 resolution condemning the Armenian Genocide. The khachkar
    was presented to Bratislava by the Nig-Aparan Compatriotic Union
    of Armenia, in the person of its Chairman, RA Prosecutor General
    Aghvan Hovsepian. The permission for placing the khachkar was given
    by the Bratislava Mayor, and works of placing and improvement of its
    surroundings were done by representatives of the local community,
    on the initiative of the community chairman A.Grigorian.

    "This noise made round the khachkar is a wonderful mean to again remind
    citizens of Bratislava about the Armenian Genocide and the Slovakia
    Parliament's adoption of the resolution condemning it," A.Grigorian
    said, adding that "not only press of Slovakia will touch upon this
    sensational news, but also we, heads of the Armenian community and me,
    also as the Foreign Minister's Advisor, will demand explanation from
    the Turkish Embassy with the help of press and will make an attempt
    of debating to prove absurdity of their demands."

    Turkey demands to unmount Armenian khachkar in Bratislava

    Turkey demands to unmount Armenian khachkar in Bratislava

    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ The Turkish Foreign Ministry is constantly sending notes of protests to the Slovakian MFA demanding to unmount the khachkar symbolizing the passage of the Armenian Genocide Resolution by the Slovakian parliament last year. At the worst, Ankara requires to rub off the inscription (the text of the resolution in Slovakian, English and Armenian).

    Upon receiving a rejection from the Slovakian MFA, Turkey charged its ambassador with a task to find substantiation for unmouting the khachkar, Bratislava’s Petrzalka district prefect Milan Ftacnik said.

    “Turkey can nothing but resign itself to the fact that the Slovakian supreme power – the National Council – has recognized the Armenian Genocide,” he said.

    The Turkish Foreign Ministry, however, attempted to question the legacy of building the monument and was checkmated, for the building process was irreproachable, Yerkir reports.

        Apparently so. All it does is bring more recognition and make them look like fools. It seems as thought the Turkish government has been giving us free public relations at an increasing rate. They would probably have more success if they just sat arond doing nothing. Bulls in china shop.
