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.

  • Armenian Genocide - help

    Hello I have a project on the Armenian Genocide and I have been researching but can not find out one fact: Why did the Young Turks decide to have a genocide on the Armenian People? Sorry if this is a thread in here already. Please help, thank you.

    If you've been researching it, that should be pretty evident. Three main things: Pro-Islam, Pro pan-Turkic nation, and oil. There's a summary I wrote up here:

      The Armenian and Roma Genocide’s

      A very good explanation is provided by the author of the article. DR. S.D. Stein
      General Antranik (1865-1927): “I am not a nationalist. I recognize only one nation, the nation of the oppressed.”

              Also, when did the genocide exactly end?

                Hard to give an exact date but most likely 1923. But it should be known that well after WWI there were continuous massacres, forced conversions, seizures of property, and expulsions of the remaining Christians in Turkey. Additionally, during WWII religious minorities were sent to work camps in the interior as the result of not being able to pay the extremely onerous "wealth tax" levied on minority households and businesses. Thousands more died. After further pogroms in 1955 against Greeks and Armenians, the remaining Greek population fled which is why there are so very few Greeks in Turkey today. Many more Armenians left during that time. Of about 300,000 or so Armenians that remained in Turkey after WWI, only 60,000 are still there after several decades.

                  It never did. With the assassination of Hrant Dink last year the Human-Genocide aspect is still evident. This act was the suppression of a powerful figure capable of bring the Genocide to the world's attention much like the intellectuals were targeted first on the night of April 24, 1915. The Azeri Turks have carried out unprovoked pogroms against Armenians in Baku and Sumgait and have (after ethnically cleansing Nakhijevan of it's ethnic Armenian population - which is sadly, seldomly mentioned by Armenians) attempted to eliminate Armenian presence in Nagorno Karabagh first by massacres against innocent civilian populations and second by all out war.

                  Secondly, the Cultural aspect of the Genocide is not only evident, it is argued that it's at a new height currently with the desecration of Surp Akhtamar Church in Van and Surp Arakelots Church in Kars as very recent examples. The Azeri Turks, for their part have bulldozed the midieval Khatchkar cemetery of "Hin Jugha" and eliminated all evidence of Armenian historical origin in Nakhijevan.

                  The Genocide continues...
