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.

    Turkey is returning to it's very dark days so no one can be certain. Erdogan has threatened to ethnic cleanse Armenians from Turkey before, and as the AKP increases in power they might decide to indirectly encourage more discrimination.

    Germany nixes Armenian 'genocide' concert in Istanbul

    October 25, 2016
    1 Comment
    BERLIN (AP) — Germany's Foreign Ministry has halted plans for a classical concert about the Armenian genocide that was due to be held at its consulate in Istanbul.
    The ministry confirmed media reports Tuesday that it had informed the Dresden Symphony Orchestra the venue wouldn't be available Nov. 13.
    The orchestra had planned to perform "Aghet ," a special concert commemorating the mass killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks around the time of World War I.
    The killings are viewed by many scholars as the first genocide of the 20th century and Germany's Parliament recently passed a resolution describing them as such, much to Turkey's anger.
    German news agency dpa reports that the orchestra had invited Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Binali Yildirim to the concert.

    The deportation of Armenians “was the right decision”, says Bahceli

    June 9, 2016 13:26

    Yerevan/Mediamax/. The leader of Turkey’s opposition Nationalist
    Movement Party Devlet Bahceli stated that "the deportation of
    Armenians in 1915 and 1916 by the Ottomans was the right decision”.

    “The future of our people would be in danger if the deportation
    decision for the Armenians wasn’t given in those conditions,” said
    Bahceli during a parliamentary group meeting of his party in Ankara on
    June 8, Turkish Hurriyetreports.

    The Turkish politician added that such decision “should be done again
    if the circumstances were the same”.

    “Changing the places of the Armenians doesn’t aim to annihilate them,
    but to protect the state, which is absolutely correct,” said Bahceli.

    TURKEY FANS BOO MINUTE'S SILENCE FOR PARIS VICTIMS - VIDEO

    12:24, 18 Nov 2015
    Siranush Ghazanchyan

    Turkish fans booed during the minute's silence for the victims of
    the Paris attacks before their national team drew 0-0 with Greece in
    a friendly international soccer game on Tuesday, Reuters reports.

    According to The Daily Mail, chants of 'Allahu Akbar' were reportedly
    heard in Istanbul as some Turkey fans shamefully booed a pre-match
    minute's silence for the victims of the Paris attacks.

    The mark of respect was observed at matches across Europe, including
    at Wembley where France faced England, after Islamic State militants
    struck Paris on Friday killing 129 people.

    Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Greek counterpart Alexis
    Tsipras watched the game together, in a sign of reconciliation between
    the two neighbors, whose relationship has suffered from hostilities
    in the past.

    It was the first time the two teams had met for eight years and
    the Turkish Football Federation had announced a string of additional
    security measures before the match at the Istanbul Basaksehir stadium,
    which was a 17,000 sell out.

    DAVUTOGLU DISCUSSES ARMENIAN GENOCIDE BILL WITH BELGIAN COUNTERPART

    16:42, 29 Sep 2015
    Siranush Ghazanchyan

    On the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in New York,
    Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu had a meeting with his Belgian
    counterpart Charles Michel.

    The Resolution the Belgian Parliament adopted on the occasion of the
    Armenian genocide Centennial was high on the agenda, Ermenihaber.am
    reports, quoting Turkish TRThaber.com.

    According to the source, the Belgian Prime Minister said the bill is
    of political importance and does not imply any legal consequences.

    Davutoglu, in turn, expressed his discontent with sanctions against
    MPs that voted against the bill, meaning Mahinur Ozdemir, who is of
    Turkish descent.

    Davutoglu added they are ready to discuss any issue, including the
    one of expelling the lawmaker from his party.

    ISTANBUL ARMENIAN ORPHANAGE BUILDING ATTACKED, 2 INJURED

    13:25, 14.08.2015

    An attack took place on Thursday night at Camp Armen Armenian orphanage
    in Istanbul, Turkey, reported Agos Armenian bilingual weekly of
    Istanbul.

    Accordingly, unidentified persons attacked and beat two of the
    "watchmen," on the hundredth day of keeping watch against the
    demolition of the orphanage.

    The Nor Zartonk movement of Istanbul Armenians, and which is keeping
    this watch in the area, released a statement regarding this attack.

    "After the harassment continued for days, a fascist attack has
    occurred on 13.08.2015 at around 11:30pm," the statement reads. "The
    individuals, who came to the door of Camp Armen with two vehicles,
    have attacked with sticks our comrades standing guard. The attack was
    disposed of, [but] in the meantime, two of our friends were beaten."

    Nor Zartonk added, however, that this incident cannot break their
    resolve, and they will continue their struggle with the same
    determination.

    Camp Armen Armenian orphanage was confiscated by the Turkish
    authorities back in 1987. Subsequently, it was sold to a Turkish
    businessman who, in turn, decided to demolish the orphanage and build
    luxury homes in the premises. As a result of public pressure, however,
    the demolition of the orphanage has been temporarily halted.

    The camp was once home to around 1,500 Armenian children, including
    the late Hrant Dink--the founder and chief editor of Agos Armenian
    bilingual weekly of Istanbul, and who was shot dead on January 19,
    2007 outside the office of his weekly--, and his wife Rakel.

    The orphanage sought to help underprivileged Armenian children and
    orphans, who had moved to Istanbul from other parts of Turkey, get
    an education.
