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.


- PLEASE READ -

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.

    VENEZUELAN PARLIAMENT ADOPTS ARMENIAN GENOCIDE RESOLUTION

    CARACAS, JULY 21, NOYAN TAPAN - ARMENIANS TODAY. The Parliament of
    Venezuela has adopted a resolution that recognizes the Armenian
    genocide and asks the European Union (EU) to place preconditions on
    Turkey's EU bid, "Yerkir" reported. Adopted on July 14, the resolution
    was introduced by Parliament Member Victor Hugo Morales and attorney
    Janet Madris. Venezuela's Armenians have worked for years to have
    their country officially recognize and denounce the genocide of fellow
    Armenians by Turkey's Ottoman government. With Turkey's recent
    aspirations toward Europe, however, the resolution also appeals to the
    EU to "postpone Turkey's membership bid until its also recognizes the
    1915 genocide of 1.5 million Armenians." The text of the resolution in
    full reads: "The National Assembly of the Bolivarian Republic of
    Venezuela Whereas The first scientifically planned, organized and
    executed genocide in the history of humanity took place 90 years ago,
    perpetrated by the regime of the "Young Turks" and their ideology of
    "Panturkism," against the Armenian People, involving the extermination
    of almost two million people. Whereas Crimes of this nature must be
    denounced in order to prevent them from happening again, in order to
    restore to the victims their human and national rights and to condemn
    the perpetrators. Whereas This genocide deserves repudiation from the
    Turkish People and all the peoples of the world. Whereas The People
    and the State of Venezuela have continuously condemned terrorism and
    racial, ethnical, religious and political discrimination. Whereas The
    People and the State of Venezuela fight permanently against all types
    of terrorism, including State Terrorism. Whereas Due to political
    causes and interests, there is an ongoing attempt to change history
    through the negation of this genocide. The National Assembly resolves
    First: To express to the Armenian People, to their government and to
    the strong Armenian-Venezuelan Community, support on their valid and
    delayed humanitarian aspirations of justice. Second: To request the
    European Union to postpone Turkey's membership bid, until the
    recognition by Turkey of the Armenian Genocide. Third: To designate a
    Committee in charge of delivering this resolution to the Armenian
    Parliament and to the Armenian Religious Authorities. Fourth: To form
    the Parliamentary Group of Friendship to the Armenian People."

    [CENTER][I][COLOR="Red"][B]"We must remind the Turkish Government that when they had Sultan Abdul Hamid, we had Andranik Pasha, Serob Aghbyur, and Gevorg Chaush.

      VENEZUELAN PARLIAMENT ADOPTS ARMENIAN GENOCIDE RESOLUTION





      Caracas, Venezuela -- The Parliament of Venezuela has adopted a resolution that recognizes the Armenian genocide and asks the European Union (EU) to place preconditions on Turkey's EU bid.

      Adopted on July 14, the resolution was introduced by Parliament Member Victor Hugo Morales and attorney Janet Madris.

      Venezuela's Armenians have worked for years to have their country officially recognize and denounce the Genocide of Armenians by Turkey's Ottoman government. With Turkey's recent aspirations toward Europe, however, the resolution also appeals to the European Union to "postpone Turkey's membership bid, until the recognition by Turkey of the Armenian genocide."

      "The Armenian National Committee (ANC) of South America celebrates this significant agreement of the Venezuelan National Assembly that marks the spiritual solidarity of the people and the state of our Latin America brothers and demands the state of Turkey to stop its political denial that is shielded in economic and political interests in attempts to change history and deny its responsibility in the Armenian genocide," noted representatives of the ANC of South America.

      There are about 3,500 Armenians living in Venezuela, with the main community in the capital Caracas, explained Ph.D candidate Vartan Matiossian, who recently released a book on the Armenian community in South America titled "The Southern Corner of the World: Armenians in Latin America from the Beginnings to 1950."

      Armenians started to migrate to Venezuela in significant numbers since the early 1950s, later founding the Armenian Center in 1966. The community has one church, St. Gregory the Illuminator, consecrated by Archbishop Mesrob Ashjian in 1987, as well as a Saturday school, a youth group, and others organizations, said Matiossian.

      The full text of the resolution follows.

      Third, it is accepted as self-evident."
