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.

    Oops, my fault. Typo. I was thinking of the date the GERMANS declared war on the Russians, not the Ottomans. Regardless, the rest of the info still stands.

            No. It was 80% of the people of Cyprus who wanted union with Greece. It was their self-determination right. The Greeks outnumbered the Turks 4 to 1 on every part of Cyprus.

            The Turks of the Republic of Hatay were only 40% and yet forced Enosis with Turkey in 1939 with threats and voting fraud.

              Coup? remember. Isnt makarios accused greece?

              Anyway, You are forgetting agreements signed by greece, turkey, uk and cyprus. You cannot do everything as you like. You cannot destroy an agreement with voting.. I am not talking about pressure against Turkish minority.

              Turkey had every right for intervining. Occupying and dividing island is different issue. Greece tried to take all island and lost half of it.

              It is not forced and It is not against any agreement. No need to change facts.

                Unfortunately the turks with American armaments were killing and massacring a great deal of Greek civilians in the 1960's to take over Cyprus that belonged only to the Greeks for thousands of years. I don't know why GeekForumer, but the turks ever since they charged into both our lands from the 12th through the 15th centuries have been very lucky throughout their miserable existence. The west plays field games with them with their political games and agendas always making them the winners despite their very belligerent past and till today with their Genocide denialist regime; which means they are still continuing the Genocide as it is the last stage of Genocide.

                  That is just 100% bull. Honestly. Where on earth did you get that from?
                  Bell, if you cannot support your point of view with reliable history sources then just shut the xxxx up. Yours is the empty talk of the "Earth is flat" style. Nothing personal. But come on, challenge your own intelligence and provide us with sth more than just your allegations. Telling it to you like one cat to another.....

                  And yes guys, I am back....for better or for worse

                    "All truth passes through three stages:
                    First, it is ridiculed;
                    Second, it is violently opposed; and
                    Third, it is accepted as self-evident."

                      I thought the Turks invaded because Greece had turned into a dictatorship and the Turks felt they were poorly represented there. But hey, its Turkish government so I don't know what they were thinking.
