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.

      FIRST FULL-LENGTH FILM ON ARMENIAN GENOCIDE TO BE SCREENED IN POLAND

      21:48, 11.05.2015
      Region:World News, Armenia
      Theme: Culture

      The cultural center of "Jerzy Grotowski Institute", Wroc┼~Baw, will
      host a film screening over Armenian Genocide, the student portal
      Dla Studenta reports. The screening will be held on Wednesdays,
      the entrance being open.

      The screening began on May 6, with the film 'Barking Island' by the
      French director Serge Avedikian, who was awarded Golden palm prize
      (Palme d'Or) at Cannes Film Festival. On the same day, the film
      "I hate dogs!" by the Swedish director Suzanne Khardalian was screened.

      On May 13, "Grandma's tattoos" - another film directed by her -
      will be shown.

      On May 20 and 27, two films from the Witnesses Trilogy by Michael
      Hagopian will be screened. The Trilogy films "Voices from the Lake
      (2000)", "Germany and the Secret Genocide (2003)," "The River Ran Red
      (2009)" include conversations with 400 Armenian Genocide survivors
      or witnesses.

      "The film Voices from the Lake, which will be screened on May 20, is
      the first full-length film about the Armenian Genocide, the product
      of 25-year work," the student portal writes.

        I have yet to see a decent genocide related film. Years ago I watched Ararat, and now this 1915 looks just as weird.

            We just don't know how to make good movies......never mind Hollywood will not help or ever show an AG film.

            We should forget about the Genocide and make movies about our heroes.

              Agreed. In my opinion the Armenian Genocide recognition movement was necessary and has been a success. Just 20 years ago only 2 countries recognized the Armenian Genocide. Today that number is up to 25. But more important the word Genocide is used in books and articles, there is global awareness that did not exist before, and the matter is no longer up to debate.

              So its time to collectively move on, put our funding and energy into advancing Armenia, and get past this victim mentality, and remind our new generation that is much more to Armenian culture and history than victimhood

                Why stop when we have gained momentum? In general I agree with you but I don't think we should just completely stop and get over it, but we do need to focus on the positives of our culture.

                  To me the purpose of the movement wasn't that any country or parliament accepted the events as genocide; it was for the general world population to gain awareness, and for the academic and historical texts to reflect the truth. This has been achieved, beyond that, what more is there to do? The events ended on a satisfying high note, with global consensus and sympathy. Dragging on the events that are now widely known and acknowledged risks creating fatigue in the collective minds of the global population

                  I think it would be smart to move forward, and instead of protests and expensive marches, have solemn memorial of the victims, and dedicate the day, and the month to investing in, and advancing Armenia. If we are indeed serious about undoing the wrongs done by the Genocide, of returning to Armenia the land, wealth, and pride that it was robbed of, we need to strengthen the Armenian nation, so it can one day retake what was taken when the opportunity presents itself.
