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.

    • You know how many times I was called Gavur in Turkey

      In all my times in Turkey I have never heard of anything like that. Infact the 27million plus tourists to Turkey each year(the vast majority Christians) dont complain about harassment. Infact the Christian tour groups alway have successful trips to Turkey - the visit things like the birth place of Mary, etc...

      I was born there I lived ..there dont tell me what I was called punk!

        • Sing that song to your fachist friends I'm fedup with that xxxx.

          I'm not a facist, infact you calling me a facist just proved that you are actually a facist racist. Just like Kanye West accused George Bush being a racist just proved that he himself is a racist.



          Again you dont read I said fasxist friends that you l;ike to associate with
          call me Craazy t

              I have never heard and seen such a mistreatment against Armenians or others in Turkey. I think you had a special experience. Actually, many things that were talked here about Turkish, seem to me a bit odd. I suspect now, do I really live in Turkey?

                I hope you didn't have the type of attitude like "I'm smarter then them"....

                This is crazy. First Armenians are claiming that they dont get into the best schools because of their religion and names but Gavur you seem to forget that millions of Turkish women cant get into higher education because of who they are.

                    • Aydiner Pleads No Contest, Gets Life Sentence

                      By Brian Barker
                      and KATU Web Staff

                      PORTLAND, Ore. - The man accused of murdering a young woman at the University of Portland in 2001 pleaded no contest to the killing on Friday and was sentenced to life in prison.

                      Deniz Aydiner had been accused of murdering Kate Johnson, whose body was found inside her dormitory room at the University of Portland on May 29, 2001. She had been brutally assaulted and strangled the night before.



                      It took investigators two and a half years to make an arrest in the case. The break came when test results from DNA evidence showed a match to Deniz Aydiner, a Turkish national.

                      Aydiner was arrested at Portland International Airport in January 2004 while returning from a trip to Turkey.

                      Up until now, Aydiner's plea was not guilty, but this week word came out that he planned on changing that plea to guilty.

                      Aydiner will be eligible for parole in 35 years at the age of 67. If he gets out, he would be immediately deported to Turkey and never allowed to return to the United States.
