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.

  • Will Kocharian And Erdogan Meet In Warsaw?


    AZG Armenian Daily #080, 04/05/2005


    'Nothing Has Been Arranged Yet' RA President's Speaker Says

    "Referring to "diplomatic sources," the Turkish Zaman informed in
    its May 1 issue that Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish prime minister, is
    preparing "the second initiative," i.e. the meeting with RA President
    Robert Kocharian.

    Zaman wrote that, according to the information by the Staff of the
    Turkish PM, the tĂȘte-Ă -tĂȘte meeting of Erdogan and Kocharian
    is envisaged in Warsaw, where the CE Summit will be held on May
    15-16. But before that, Kocharian and Erdogan will participate in
    another international arrangement. The 60th Anniversary of Victory
    in World War II will be celebrated in Moscow on May 8-9.

    "The time and the place of the meeting haven~Rt been specified yet,
    but the opportunity of such a meeting will be created during the
    Summit. If Erdogan and Kocharian meet, they will discuss the statements
    on the genocide for the first time face to face," Zaman wrote.

    Victor Soghomonian, speaker of RA President, said in the interview
    to daily Azg that "nothing has been arranged yet."

    The Turkish newspaper emphasized that Ankara's diplomatic initiative
    in the "issue of the statements on genocide" began by the exchange
    of the letters the leaders of both countries addressed to each other.

    On April 10, Erdogan suggested Kocharian "to create a group of
    historians and other experts that would study the events and
    the developments of the past not only in the archives of Armenia
    and Turkey but also in the archives of third countries and would
    also inform the international community about the results of the
    research." RA President mentioned in his response that "we have not
    the right to give these plenipotentiaries to the historians. Thus,
    we suggest establishing natural relations between two countries
    without any preconditions."

    Before Kocharian received the letter, the Turkish press, as well as
    The New York Times wrote that RA President refused the suggestion of
    the Turkish PM, trying to make the impression that Armenia avoids to
    unfold a discussion.

    One shouldn~Rt exclude, that in this case also the Turkish press
    tries to speak of the probable meeting between Erdogan and Kocharian
    beforehand, so that they can blame Armenia for its unwillingness to
    meet if the meeting doesn~Rt take place.

    If the meeting in Warsaw takes place that shouldn~Rt be considered as
    something extraordinary, as Kocharian has already met the Turkish PM
    twice. On June 15, 1998, Kocharian met with Suleymam Demirel, former
    Turkish PM in Yalta. The second meeting took place on November 17,
    1999, within the framework of the OSCE Istanbul Summit. RA President
    calls this meeting a bilateral "display of good will."
