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.

      Re: Urge PBS Not to Give Air-Time to Armenian Genocide Deniers!!!

      You know, I happened to catch this last night...the last half hour when the denials were beginning. GRRRRRRRRRRR!!! I'm sure you already know this, but, me being out of the loop just found out the following: In 2003/4, Turkish schools have to have a program to teach history saying there was no genocide; Turks say it is a civil war (which, I particularly love because others say that Armenia didn't have a population up to and exceeding 1.5 million in 1915 -- one would think they would get together to keep their lies straight).

      My favourite, though is that it also had Turks saying that yeah, we DID slaughter the Armenians (not bragging, but, after they did independant research and found out). Their houses were destroyed, they lost their jobs and they were imprisoned, or they had to flee. THIS is why I'm so pissed when people say, "Turkey is a modern secular country". NO IT'S NOT!!!
      "Many diasporans are the descendants of genocide survivors. They are not just going to forget what the Ottoman Turks did to them or their ancestors in 1915. For the Turkish government the diasporans are merely the "ones that got away."" -- Tom Servo

        I saw the documentry last night. It was very well done. Also, there was no denial panel on after it was over. Pressure from the Rhode Island community took care of that problem.

          07:30 pm AS IT HAPPENED - THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE
          During World War One, the Ottoman Empire carried out one of the largest genocides in the world's history, killing huge portions of its minority Armenian population. In the end, over one million Armenians had been put to death by execution or by deliberate exposure and starvation. This film, made by Emmy-Award winning producer Andrew Goldberg, is the complete story of the Armenian genocide. The film describes what happened before, during and since World War I and features interviews with acclaimed scholars such as Peter Balakian, Samantha Power, Ron Suny, Taner Akcam, Halil Berktay, and Israel Charney. It is narrated by Julianna Margulies and includes historical narrations by Ed Harris, Natalie Portman, Laura Linney and Orlando Bloom. (From Armenia, in English) WS
