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.

    Cultural Genocide Lectures

    Simon Maghakyan, the author of `The First Christian Civilization's
    Cultural Genocide' photo-collection, will be available for delivering
    presentations on Cultural Genocide of the Armenian Heritage starting
    this fall.

    (I-Newswire) - Simon Maghakyan, the author of `The First Christian
    Civilization's Cultural Genocide' photo-collection, will be available
    for delivering presentations on Cultural Genocide of the Armenian
    Heritage starting this fall.

    Maghakyan, a student in Colorado, has been studying the state of the
    Armenian cultural monuments in Turkey for the last few years. He has
    collected hundreds of photographs from various sources that testify
    to the attempted destruction of the Armenian monuments in the
    Republic of Turkey. Maghakyan is also the author of more than
    three-dozen Armenian-related articles that have been published in the
    USA, Armenia, Russia, Iran, Greece, etc.

    Maghakyan has given speeches during various human rights awareness
    events and has been called `a vibrant speaker' by Colorado's local
    papers. He was paid tribute to by the Colorado Congressman Tom
    Tancredo in the House of the Representatives for his continuous
    academic success and for his genuine service to Colorado's community.
    During 2004-2005, Maghakyan served as the president of Phi Theta
    Kappa International Honor Society's Sigma Phi chapter.

    The Cultural Genocide of the Armenian Heritage is a result of the
    denialist policy of the Turkish government. Between 1915 ( the year
    the Armenian Genocide started ) and now, more than 2000 Armenian
    churches and cathedrals of eastern Turkey have been ruined, converted
    to mosques and desecrated. As Henry Morgenthau, America's Ambassador
    to the Ottoman Empire at the time of the Armenian Genocide, has
    stated, `the killing of the Armenian people was accomplished by the
    systematic destruction of churches, schools, libraries, treasures of
    arts and cultural monuments in an attempt to eliminate all traces of
    a noble civilization with a history of more than 3000 years.'

    Lecture requests can be made through www.CulturalGenocide.cjb.net.

    What if I find someone else when looking for you? My soul shivers as the idea invades my mind.

    I was looking at the thread on climbing and followed a link to Turkey's Ministry of Culture and Tourism site [http://goturkey.kultur.gov.tr/]. I clicked on the Eastern region. Not one mention of Armenia, not one. It talks of many churches and ruins and completely leaves Armenia out of it. Out of curiousity, I've checked other Turkish sites on their so-called culture. Again, it's as if Armenians never lived there. So this cultural genocide is a part of their plan to slowly erase the history of massive Armenian settlement in Anatolia, for if there were no Armenians in Anatolia, how could so many have been murdered.

      Huh! An amateur ...trying to run before he can even crawl. The monuments need solutions not more rabble rousers.

      I have 12,000 photos, and I have never heard of him.
      Plenipotentiary meow!

        Look how he says that he has collected hundreds of photographs from various sources. I think he never even set foot there.
