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.

  • Over 350 European Organizations Urge To Include Armenian Issue In Turkey's Eu Access

    PanArmenian News, Armenia

    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ Over 350 associations and key leaders of European
    civil society from 21 countries responded to an appeal by the
    European Armenian Federation to include Armenian Genocide recognition
    in Turkey's EU accession negotiations framework. The European
    Armenian Federation noted that, on Tuesday July 5th, the French
    delegation of European People's Party (EPP - - Christian Democrats) of
    European Parliament called on the Council `to modify the mandate of
    negotiations of the [European] Commission', notably `to reinforce the
    exigencies of Union on essential topics such as Freedom of Religion,
    Penal legislation, the recognition of Cyprus and the recognition of
    the Armenian Genocide'. `We would encourage the European Union to
    utilize the criteria established by the European Parliament, adopted
    since the beginning of Turkey's accession process, instead wasting
    funds trying to improve Turkey's image in Europe at the expense of
    European tax dollars,' stated European Armenian Federation Chairwoman
    Hilda Tchoboian. `It is regrettable that the Commission would so
    openly ignore the wishes of 450 million European citizens and their
    730 elected representatives. It is an abnormal and dangerous
    situation for democracy. Encouraged by the support of political
    parties and leaders in the Union, we will again submit the European
    Appeal and the signatories list to the European Council in the days
    leading up to the October 3rd negotiations,' concluded Tchoboian.
