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.

    Turkish, Armenian leaders could meet, but nothing planned, minister says

    AP Worldstream
    May 05, 2005

    Turkey's Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul on Thursday left open the
    possibility that leaders from Armenia and Turkey could meet, but said
    nothing concrete was planned, the Anatolia news agency reported.

    Asked about Turkish press reports that Turkish Prime Minister Recep
    Tayyip Erdogan and Armenian President Robert Kocharian could meet
    during May 9 Victory Day celebrations in Moscow or at a Council of
    Europe summit scheduled for May 15-16 in Warsaw, Gul said: "It could
    be, but nothing is planned," Anatolia reported.

    Gul, speaking to reporters before flying to Kyrgyzstan, said that
    ministers from Armenia and Turkey have met in the past although the
    two neighbors do not have diplomatic relations, Anatolia said.

    Turkey and Armenia disagree over the mass killings of Armenians at
    the time of World War I that Armenians say was genocide.

    Armenians say some 1.5 million Armenians were killed in a deliberate
    genocidal campaign by Ottoman Empire authorities.

    But Turkey says Armenia inflates the death toll and says the Armenians
    were killed or displaced in civil unrest during the collapse of
    the empire.

    Erdogan has said Turkey might establish political ties if Armenia
    agreed to set up a joint commission to investigate the killings.
    Armenia says it is ready to re-establish relations with Ankara,
    but without any preconditions.

    The issue has gained new urgency as Turkey seeks membership in the
    European Union.
