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 Swiss scholar Hans-Lukas Kieser, a historian specializing in the
    late Ottoman period, has been designated the first Manoogian Simone
    Foundation Visiting Scholar, announced Prof. Gerard Libaridian,
    Director of the Armenian Studies Program at the University of
    Michigan, Ann Arbor.

    Dr. Kieser, on the faculty of the University of Zurich, will be
    joining the History Department faculty at the University of Michigan
    for the Winter semester of the current academic year. He will be
    teaching two mini courses " 'Missionary" America and the Near East
    (19th-20th century)" and "Turkish and Kurdish Nationalisms, Late 19th
    and 20th Centuries."

    Professor Kieser is the author of "A Quest for Belonging. Anatolia
    beyond Empire and Nation (19th-21st centuries)," to be released soon,
    as well as three other volumes and numerous articles dealing with
    Anatolia, Turkish-Armenian relations and Western-Ottoman relations. He
    has lectured widely and conducted many workshops throughout
    Europe. Dr. Kieser is considered one of the most respected scholars
    whose research focuses on this difficult period. Dr. Kieser's doctoral
    dissertation (University of Basel, in German) was titled "Mission,
    Ethnos and State in the Eastern Ottoman Provinces (1839-1923)."

    The position of Visiting Scholar has been made possible by the recent
    gift from the Manoogian Simone Foundation. In addition to teaching two
    courses, Professor Kieser will also be delivering a number of lectures
    to the University and larger communities during his stay from January
    through April 2008.

    "Professor Kieser is one of the most prolific and prominent scholars
    who study the late Ottoman period," stated Prof. Libaridian. "His
    contributions to the understanding of this important period have been
    quite significant, especially in terms of his research into the
    relations of the Ottoman state with non-Turkic peoples. His courses
    will add a new dimension not only to the Armenian studies curriculum
    but also to the already rich offerings of the departments of History
    and Near Eastern Studies at our university. We are all delighted that
    he has accepted our invitation."

    Dr. Joanne Layxxxx, University of Manchester, has been designated the
    first Manoogian Simone Foundation Post-doctoral Fellow, announced Prof.
    Gerard Libaridian, Director of the Armenian Studies Program at the
    University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

    Dr. Layxxxx's research in recent years has covered the British
    Armenophile movement and the British response to the Armenian Genocide,
    Armenian refugee relief post WWI, and also British travel literature on
    Armenia. She has highlighted Soviet Armenian History, especially with
    regards to the repatriation to Armenia and homeland-Diaspora relations.

    Dr. Joanne Layxxxx's doctoral dissertation was titled: Anglo-French
    Scholarship on Armenians in the Late Nineteenth and Early Twentieth
    Centuries and the Response to the Armenian Genocide (2000-2001),
    University of Manchester, School of Arts, Histories and Cultures. Her
    article "Armenia: The 'Nationalization,' Internationalization and
    Representation of the Refugee Crisis," (co-authored with Peter Gatrell),
    was recently included in Nick Baron and Peter Gatrell, eds., Homelands:
    War, Population and Statehood in Eastern Europe and Russia, 1918-1924
    (Anthem Press, 2004), 179-200. Her forthcoming publications in 2008
    include Imagining Armenia: Orientalism, Ambiguity and Intervention
    1878-1925 (Manchester University Press) and "Repatriations in Post
    Second World War Armenia," in Peter Gatrell and Nick Baron, eds,
    Warlands: Population Resettlement and State Reconstruction in Soviet
    Eastern Europe, 1945-1950.

    Dr. Joanne Layxxxx's research while in Ann Arbor will address the
    cultural history of population displacement in modern Armenia, with
    particular reference to constructions of 'home/land.' Her work will
    highlight the various locations and contingent nature of 'homeland,' the
    complex experience of multiple displacements and return journeys and the
    centrality of landscape and material culture in articulating relations
    between homeland and diaspora.
    The position of Post-doctoral Fellow at the University of Michigan, Ann
    Arbor, has been made possible by the recent gift from the Manoogian
    Simone Foundation to the University's Armenian Studies Program. Dr.
    Layxxxx will deliver a number of lectures to the University and larger
    communities during her stay, January through June 2008.
