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.

  • ANCA tours with SYSTEM OF A DOWN

    02.09.2005 14:16

    YEREVAN (YERKIR) - Cutting-edge, multi-platinum band System of a Down continues to deliver its message of justice for the Armenian Genocide, educating fans at its Summer 2005 concert series about this crime against humanity, and urging them to work for the adoption of the Armenian Genocide Resolution, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).

    The ANCA, at the invitation of the band, has worked alongside
    Amnesty International and Axis of Justice at activist tables at
    concerts to distribute educational materials, secure signatures on
    petitions, field questions, and promote discussion about the
    Turkish government's ongoing denial of the Armenian Genocide. The
    ANCA, in coordination with its regional offices and with the help
    of the Armenian Youth Federation (AYF), has already worked shows in
    Long Beach, CA; San Diego, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Dallas, TX; San
    Antonio, TX; Houston, TX; Pensacola, FL; Miami, FL; Atlanta, GA;
    Hampton, VA; Baltimore, MD; East Rutherford, NJ; and Philadelphia,

    In May of this year, Mezmerize, the first half of the band's two-
    part album Mezmerize/Hypnotize, debuted as the number-one selling
    CD in the United States. On April 24th of this year, System held a
    sold-out "Souls" benefit concert for the ANCA and other groups
    working to prevent genocide and counter genocide denial. The band
    has sold nearly 10 million CDs worldwide. A Google search for
    "System of a Down" returns over 1.6 million hits.

    "We are tremendously encouraged by the overwhelming response to
    System's creative and powerful outreach to their growing fan-base,"
    said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian. "The band has
    educated literally millions about the Armenian Genocide, increasing
    awareness of this crime and helping generate the political will we
    will need to defeat Turkey's campaign to deny justice to the
    Armenian people."
