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.

  • Kurdistan or Armenia???

    Guys please go to this site and see if this is the "Khor Virab" or I am mistaken, and please read the article and let me know what do you think about Kurds claiming that some of their lands are in Armenia.

          elendil, we are talking about the Armenian Church Khor Virab, which has never been in possession of Turks. It is about a mile and a half from the Turkish border, it has been in Armenian possession for 1,704 years on land that has been in Armenian possession for upwards of three thousand years - Get used to THAT fact...

            Here is my e-mail to, and response from the administration of that Kurdish site:

            To Whom it May Concern:

            I was just curious to know what the Armenian Church "Khor Virab" whose
            picture is on your website, has anything to do with Kurds or Kurdistan?

            Hovik
            ArmenianGenocide.com

            *******

            Hovik,

            Thank you for writing. The monastery Khor Virab makes a very striking
            photograph with the mountains in the background. Some Kurdish villages are
            found in these mountains of Armenia. We do not wish to imply that Khor Virab
            has anything to do with Kurds or Kurdistan.

            Sincerely,
            TeamPSW

              If it is outside our present borders then my comment was misguided, my apologies...

                Why are you surprised? Ever see a map of what the kurds claim as kurdistan?



                On the site it also says, "Diyarbakir, in southeastern Turkey is widely accepted as the ancient capital of the Kurds." , but from what I have seen on maps and read elsewhere, it seems to me that "diarbakir" is one of Tigranes 4 cities that he named Tigranakert and like most other Armenian towns and cities, they are claiming them as theirs. I guess they still want what they were promised by the turks for killing Armenians. According to their map, even Ararat is in kurdistan.

                    I'm not so sure because I don't know Yerevan that well, but I think "Sourp Zoravor" is near "M. Saryan museum", close to Pushkin str. (between Saryan str. and Pushkin Str.)
