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.

  • Recognition of Armenian Genocide by the world’s parliaments.

    Swedish Parliament enters into discussions on Genocide Resolution

    16:19 / 03/11/2010March 11 at 3 p.m. Yerevan time, the Swedish Parliament started discussion of the Armenian Genocide Resolution.

    Bill on Armenian Genocide recognition has been proposed by three oppositional parties: Social Democratic, Green and Left. The resolution condemns Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Empire as well as genocides against other nations.

    DeutscheWelle reported that Swedish Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee offered to reject the bill.

    Resolutions on Armenian Genocide recognition have been proposed in previous years, but were always thrown. This time, Social Democrats, who used to vote against the bills, unanimously voted for it last November.

    178 Swedish MPs represent the Government, while 171 are left-wingers. Thus, the bill will be rejected if the pro-government MPs vote against it. However, three of fifteen MPs who put forward the resolution are members of pro-governmental parties.

          Swedish Parliament recognized Armenian Genocide

          21:23 / 03/11/2010Yesterday, Swedish Parliament decided to consider the resolution on recognition of the massacres of Armenians in Ottoman Empire in 1915 as genocide, Swedish media say.

          Thus, parliament went against the government line, having the red-green opposition suggesting that the massacres of Armenians, Assyrians, Syrians, Chaldeans and Pontic Greeks during World War I committed in Ottoman Empire to be called a genocide. The non-socialist parties threw the proposal reasoning that politicians are not going to write the history. However, a number of conservative MPs voted for the resolution, which resulted in proposal passing by a casting vote — 131 against 130.

          According to the experts, it may have been up to 2.5 million people lost their lives. Turkey negates that there was a genocide.

            Swedish Parliament recognized Armenian Genocide
            21:23 / 03/11/2010


            Majority of Swedish parliament voted in favor of resolution describing the mass killings of Armenians and other Christian minorities in modern Turkey by the end of World War I as genocide, Swedish media say.

            Thus, parliament went against the government, having the red-green opposition suggesting the resolution for discussion. The non-socialist parties threw the proposal reasoning that politicians are not going to write the history. However, a number of conservative MPs voted for the resolution, which resulted in motion passing by a casting vote — 131 against 130.

            “Now I assume that Foreign Minister Carl Bildt respects the decision of Parliament and to the Turkish leadership position in front of Parliament, that what happened in 1915 was a genocide. There have been reports that Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan visit Stockholm next week. If it is true, I think it goes without saying that Bildt will address the issue,” said Riksdag member Hans Linde.

            According to the experts, it may have been up to 2.5 million people lost their lives, while Turkey negates that there was a genocide.

            Sweden approves resolution on "Armenian genocide"
            11 Mar 2010 18:51:36 GMT
            Source: Reuters
            STOCKHOLM, March 11 (Reuters) - Swedish parliament approved on Thursday a resolution that brands the killing of Armenians by Ottoman forces during World War One as genocide.
            A U.S. House of Representatives committee approved last week a nonbinding measure condemning killings that took place nearly 100 years ago, in the last days of the Ottoman Empire.
            Turkey was infuriated and recalled its ambassador after the announcement.
            Swedish television programme Aktuellt reported that the Turkish ambassador in Stockholm would be recalled to Ankara.
            The issue of the Armenian massacres is deeply sensitive in Turkey. Turkey accepts that many Christian Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks but vehemently denies that up to 1.5 million died and that it amounted to genocide -- a term employed by many Western historians and some foreign parliaments.

              Kurdish MP's vote casting in Swedish Parliament

              12:02 / 03/12/2010Vote of Swedish MP of Kurdish origin Gulan Avci was crucial in the adoption of Armenian Genocide bill by Swedish Parliament, though Liberal People’s Party opposed the motion.

              In an interview with Firat agency, Avci said that she opposed her party and voted for the bill so that Turkey faces the history. “Turkish Kurds are under menace of Genocide, thus recognition of Genocide by Riksdag is of major significance. I knew that my vote will be decisive and necessary. It is time for Turkey to recognize committed past genocides and massacres. Many states consider Turkey a country that committed a Genocide. This is the first time, that Swedish Parliament recognized Genocide of Pontic Greeks, Assyrians and Syrians,” Avci noted.

              March 11, majority of Swedish parliament voted for the resolution describing the mass killings of Armenians and other Christian minorities in modern Turkey by the end of World War I as genocide. Bill on Armenian Genocide recognition has been proposed by three oppositional parties: Social Democratic, Green and Left. Resolution was adopted with 131 against 130 votes.

              Later Turkey recalled its Ambassador from Stockholm and cancelled Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Sweden scheduled for March 17 after the adoption of Armenian Genocide Resolution by Riksdag.
