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.

  • British-Armenian Parliamentary Group Demands That Uk Recognize Armenian Genocide


    16.06.2005 03:35

    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ The British-Armenian multi-partisan parliamentary group organized an international conference at the House of Lords yesterday, reported the Press Service of the Foreign Ministry of Armenia. Armenian FM Vartan Oskanian was invited as the main speaker at it. Head of the Armenian-British Friendship Group baroness Caroline Cox and Armenian Ambassador to UK Vahe Gabriyelyan addressed the opening of the conference. Senior Aide of the Canadian Prime Minister Sarkis Assadourian, head of the Armenian-French Friendship Group of the French Parliament Francois Rochebloine, Executive Director of Beth Shalom Holocaust Commemoration Foundation James Smith also addressed the meeting. V. Oskanian made the key report. The conference subject was the issue of genocide, which is considered as a threat to the humanity today as well, genocide prevention by the international community, unacceptability of the Turkish policy of denial of the Armenian Genocide. The issue of acknowledgement of the Armenian Genocide was discussed within the context of Turkey's accession to the EU. At that it was noted that before it Ankara has to recognize the Armenian Genocide and normalize relations with Yerevan. V. Oskanian drew the attention of those present to the contradiction between the statements and actions of the Turkish Government, which on the one hand tries to come out as a proponent of the truce, while on the other criminalizes the term «genocide», bans public discussion of the issue in the country and event demands that the British Government revise histories of Genocide witnesses diplomat James Brice and historian Arnold Toynbee. Nevertheless, not seeing an alternative to the Armenian-Turkish reconciliation, V. Oskanian said Armenia is ready to normalize the Armenian-Turkish relations without preconditions. British politicians and public figures, foreign guests, diplomats and representative of British and foreign media were present at the event. The latest event of this level was organized in 2000 due to the 85th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. After the conference a dinner was organized in honor of V. Oskanian. In the latter half of the day the British-Armenian Group addressed the British Government a demand supported by 3 thousand signatures to recognize the Armenian Genocide and promote Armenian-Turkish reconciliation. Yesterday a joint liturgy of the Armenian Apostolic and Anglican Churches marked the 90th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. V. Oskanian, V. Gabriyelyan, baroness Cox, founder of the British-Armenian Parliamentary Group duke Shanon, abbot Rice and other were present at the liturgy. The same evening V. Oskanian left London for Brussels, where he will present Armenia's Action Plan to the EU and the North Atlantic Council.

When they had Taleat pasha, we had Soghomon Tehleryan. New Hrants will be born, and our struggle will go on.” [/B][/COLOR][/I][/CENTER]
