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.

    The Associated Press, Reuters FRIDAY, JULY 1, 2005. BAKU, Azerbaijan
    The government of Azerbaijan said Thursday that it would start
    accepting Turkish Cypriot passports, becoming only the second
    country, after Turkey, to give a degree of recognition to the enclave
    in northern Cyprus.
    The decision is expected to anger European Union members and the
    Greek Cypriots, whose government is internationally recognized as the
    sole authority on the ethnically divided island.
    The move came as Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey
    met to discuss regional cooperation and development with the
    Azerbaijani president, Ilham Aliyev, who said his country would work
    to end the isolation of Turkish Cypriots.
    Announcing the passport decision during talks here in the
    capital, Ibrahim Nabioglu, Azerbaijan's consul-general in Istanbul,
    said: "Azerbaijan recognises the passports of northern Cyprus and is
    keen on developing relations with it."
    Turkey is the only country that recognises Turkish Cypriot-run
    northern Cyprus as a state.
    Most of Azerbaijan's eight million people are of Turkic origin
    and the country has very close cultural and political ties with
    Turkey. Both Azerbaijan and Turkey are predominantly Muslim.
    At a news briefing with Erdogan, Aliyev stopped short of
    offering Turkish Cypriots full recognition but promised to help them
    emerge from international isolation.
    "Azeri companies can work with their counterparts in northern
    Cyprus, and we are also planning to start direct charter flights to
    northern Cyprus," Aliyev said.

    After limited recognition by Azerbaijan to Turkish occupied northern
    Cyprus, should we demand from the Government of Cyprus, outright
    recognition of The Artsakh Republic?

    WASHINGTON, DC - The Parliamentary Assembly of the Organisation for
    Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE PA), meeting last night in
    Washington, DC, voted overwhelmingly to defeat a controversial
    measure on Nagorno Karabagh authored by Azerbaijani Parliamentarian
    Sattar Safarov.
    The vote took place during a meeting of the OSCE PA's Heads of
    Delegation, as part of the opening session of the four-day meeting
    for members of Parliament from the 55 member states of the OSCE. The
    Safarov resolution, which was widely viewed as a biased and divisive
    measure, received only token support, with nearly all the Heads of
    Delegation voting, by a show of hands, to keep the measure off of the
    OSCE PA agenda.
    The Canadian delegation participating in the Washington meeting
    included Sen. C. Di Nino (head of the delegation), Senator J.
    Grafstein, Senator E. Hubley and House of Commons members Hon. D.
    Bouderia. D. Johnston, F. Lalonde, and G. Lunn.
    In the weeks preceding the OSCE PA Washington meeting, the
    Armenian National Committee of Canada (ANCC) representatives met with
    the Canadian delegation members and provided information on Nagorno
    Karabagh. It also presented a position paper to all delegates and the
    OSCE PA Canadian clerk.
    The Armenian delegation is being headed by Vahan Hovhannisian,
    the Deputy Speaker of Armenia's Parliament. Other members of the
    delegation are Artashes Geghamyan, MP and Samvel Nikoyan, MP. The
    Armenian National Committees through North America and Europe worked
    closely with the Armenian delegation, in sharing with OSCE PA members
    the dangers of the Safarov resolution.


    Armenians in the United States and Europe should launch a
    coordinated campaign to ensure that Time magazine would never again
    allow itself to be used as a tool for the dissemination of Turkish
    lies on the Armenian Genocide.
    The Ankara Chamber of Commerce had paid around $1 million to
    place four full-page ads and a DVD in the June 6 issue of the
    European edition of Time magazine which has a circulation of around
    500,000 copies.
    The ad pages contain pictures of Greek and Armenian historical
    sites in Turkey. The DVD insert, which comes in a blank white wrapper
    and does not carry the mandatory "advertising supplement" disclosure,
    contains a couple of short ads on tourism and a 70-minute segment
    that includes dozens of distortions and vicious lies about the
    Armenian Genocide.
    more at:

    The Armenian community should ask Time magazine to:
    1) Publish an apology for disseminating this fraudulent DVD;
    2) Issue a formal memo to all its divisions around the world not to
    accept this DVD as an insert (the Ankara Chamber of Commerce has
    announced its intention to place the same DVD in Time's Asian and
    Pacific editions);
    3) Issue a written warning to all its advertising executives not to
    accept any more ads from Turkish entities that deny the Armenian
    Genocide (just as they would not run an ad that denies the Jewish
    Holocaust and glorifies Hitler; the New York Times recently rejected
    an ad from Turkish organisations denying the Armenian Genocide);
    4) Destroy the extra 116,000 copies of this DVD that are still in
    Time's possession;
    5) Agree to insert and disseminate free of charge a DVD prepared by a
    reputable research institute on the Armenian Genocide;
    6) Donate the payment it received from the Turkish Chamber of
    Commerce for this ad to an Armenian charity.

    Should Time reject the above demands, Armenians should then:
    1) Cancel their subscriptions and ads; and urge their friends and
    business colleagues to do likewise;
    2) File lawsuits in several European countries (France, Switzerland,
    Belgium, Holland and Germany) where genocide denial or making
    statements of racial hatred is against the law;
    3) Issue a public appeal for funds to pay for the legal costs of
    these lawsuits.
    The most important issue is that Armenians should not remain silent
    in the face of such an offencive ad. If they ignore it, they would
    then be encouraging the Turks to place similar offencive ads not only
    in other editions of Time, but also in magazines around the world. It
    is somewhat fortunate that the Turks chose to run this ad in the
    European edition of Time. Since several European countries have laws
    banning such hate mail, it makes it easy for Armenians to take legal
    action. Armenians should take advantage of this unique opportunity
    and make an example of Time magazine!
