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.

    France Finds Site for Armenian Monument

    By Ali Ihsan Aydın, Paris
    Published: Thursday, February 09, 2006

    France has not been able to find an appropriate place for a monument of Ataturk, but recently established the future site of a monument for the alleged Armenian genocide in the city of Lyon.

    France declared 2006 as "the year of Armenia" and continues establishing so-called genocide monuments. Following the example of the Paris Municipality, the Lyon Municipality will also build a monument for Armenians in an area noted on UNESCO's World Heritage List; where changes are forbidden. Non-governmental organizations that opposed the monument on the grounds that "the historical pattern will be changed" could not prevent the decision. The monument will be unveiled April 24, the anniversary of the so-called genocide. Turkey's former Ambassador to France Uluc Ozulker made concerted efforts for a monument of Ataturk to be set up but obtained no result.

    The project had been discussed for a long time in the Lyon Municipal Assembly. Chairman Denis Broliquier opposed the site and the monument’s budget of 35,000 euros. Members of the Conservative People's Union Movement and the Lyon Union also supported the chairman, but the project was eventually passed with votes from the Socialist Party’s members. Antonin-Poncet Square, where the monument will be established, is one of the most beautiful places of Lyon. The region is under the protection of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The French set up a Komitas genocide monument by the Seine River in Paris upon pressure from Armenian organizations.

    The site was taken under UNESCO protection in 1991. The statue of Komitas, turned into a show of force by the Armenians in France, is in a square in the vicinity of the famous Champs-Elysee, a place much frequented by tourists. France passed a law recognizing the genocide in 2001 and declared 2006 as the year of Armenia; nearly 500,000 Armenians live in France.

    UNESCO's 1972 Convention for the World Cultural and Natural Heritage asks the protection of places on the list and no damage to their natural pattern. But the Convention includes no mechanism to prevent this. UNESCO can object the way it did in the construction of a road near Mount Nemrut in Turkey. UNESCO sources told Zaman that pressure can be put on France if it violates the rules and in the case of a complaint from the public. Sources state the organization will ask for information from France in case the issue comes to the agenda, and say these regions may be included on the List of World Heritage in Danger in the event the World Heritage Committee concurs a change in the natural setting is made.

    Istanbul, on the World Heritage list, was considered to be possibly shifted to the List of World Heritage in Danger on the grounds it is not sufficiently protected. UNESCO however started to follow Istanbul and granted Turkey an additional two-year time period.

    No room for Ataturk monument

    The French, who offered one of their most popular places to the Armenians, could not find room for a statue of the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, in Paris, where statues of many world-wide known figures reside. Turkey's former Ambassador to Paris, Uluc Ozulker, made great efforts at the French offices for the commissioning of the statue but obtained no result. The Turkish Embassy has applied for the 16th region of Paris, where the embassy is situated, for the setting of the statue. However, French officials suggested the wall of the Princess Lamballe Castle for the monument, the Turkish Embassy did not approve this idea and efforts remained at a standstill. More than 450,000 Turks live in France.
