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.

    Armenian National Committee of Aust. Condemns

    Vandalism of Armenian Genocide Plaque

    The Armenian National Committee of Australia joins the
    Armenian-Australian Community in condemning the deliberate removal
    by vandals of the Commemorative plaque in Meadowbank Memorial Park
    marking the 90th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

    The plaque was dedicated on 24 April 2005, on the 90th Anniversary
    of the Armenian Genocide, during a solemn ceremony presided by
    Archbishop Aghan Baliozian, Primate of the Armenian Apostolic Church
    of Australia and New Zealand together the Mayor and Councillors of
    Ryde City Council, and the State Member for Ryde, Hon. John Watkins,
    as well as hundreds of members of the Armenian-Australian Community.

    Two weeks earlier, Ryde City Council unanimously passed a resolution
    recognising and condemning the Armenian Genocide, as well as condemning
    all attempts to deny it.

    "This criminal act of vandalism is a shameless example of the extent
    to which certain denialist of the Armenian Genocide will go to
    eradicate the memory of the 1.5 million men, women and children who
    fell victim to the first genocide of the 20th Century. Such people
    forget, however, that they live in a democracy where public officials
    will not be intimidated or deterred by such criminal behaviour" said
    Armenian National Committee of Australia President Dr Tro Kortian.
    He added "We are confident that the law enforcement authorities will
    bring these criminals to justice".

    The New South Wales Government also today condemned this crime, Jusice
    Minister Hatzistergos calling it a "disgraceful and cowardly act".

    It has been said that the truth is the final victim of genocide.
    The Ryde City Council and the New South Wales Parliament (which in 1997
    also unanimously passed a resolution condemning the Armenian Genocide
    and all attempts to deny it) have added their unequivocal voice to the
    growing international call that the memory of the Armenian Genocide
    must never be allowed to be erased so that another Hiltler will
    never dare to again utter the words "After all who today remembers
    the extermination of the Armenians".
