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.

  • Erdogan urges Sarkisian to apologize

    BAKU—Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that President Serzh Sarkisian must apologize for what the Turkish daily Today’s Zaman characterized as “calling on school children to occupy eastern Turkey.”

    While speaking to participants of the fifth All Armenian Olympiad of Armenian language and literature on Saturday, Sarkisian was asked whether Western Armenia, with Mount Ararat, will ever be united with Armenia, to which the president responded, “everything depends on the young generation.”

    Speaking at a joint news conference with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Erdogan called Sarkisian’s statement a “historical mistake” that should be corrected, reported Today’s Zaman.

    In his remarks, Sarkisian also said that “the current generation defended and liberated a part of Armenian land. If the future generation makes much effort then Armenia will be one of the best states in the world,” said Sarkisian.

    The Turkish Foreign Ministry on Tuesday also strongly condemned Sarkisian’s remarks, calling the statement “very irresponsible behavior.”

    According to Today’s Zaman, Erdogan said Sarkisian’s behavior is a provocation and an attempt to fill youth with hatred, which he said will lead Armenia’s youth into “darkness.”

    “There cannot be such diplomacy. Sarkisian has made a very serious mistake … he must apologize,” Erdoğan added.

    Erdogan also said Armenia was not displaying a constructive role in the Nagorno-Karabakh peace talks, saying Azerbaijan is working for peace and displaying a positive attitude in peace talks.

    In his turn, Aliyev also slammed Sarkisian’s remarks and said Armenians should wake up “from a dream into real life.” He said Nagorno-Karabakh is an Azerbaijani territory and that Sarkisian’s words that they will occupy, what he called, “historical Turkish lands” only show their occupation mentality, adding that it seems as if Armenia thinks they have already settled the Nagorno-Karabakh issue.

    “Azerbaijan will get back their territories, either through peace or military means,” Aliyev said.

    Aliyev was more cautious however, when asked if Azerbaijan would recognize “Northern Cyprus” in the event that talks to settle the Cyprus issue failed. Aliyev said this is not an easy task. “There is also a Nagorno-Karabakh problem. I hope this conflict will be solved one day,” Aliyev said, referring to vulnerability of his country in recognizing Turkish Cyprus due to pressure from the European Union.

    While visiting Turkey in 2004, Aliyev said Azerbaijan would consider recognizing “N. Cyprus” if Greek Cypriots rejected a UN plan to reunify the island. Reportedly, the EU pressured Azerbaijan to not recognize the “Northern Cyprus” and threatened to recognize the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

    ‘Who is Going to ask Erdogan to Apologize’ for Cyprus, Asks Israeli Diplomat

    For me it is again a evidence how barbaric turkish policy and politican is. Still now no turkish politican feels sorry for the genozide, they are proud of killing millions of armenians.
    How can be PEACE between Turkey ans Armenia?
    Turks are very proud until now, that they brutal slaughtered at 1915-17 almost 3 000 000 christians in the otoman empire.

    Re: Erdogan urges Sarkisian to apologize

    Great answer by President Sarkisian to the students question.....really well said.

    My message to Erdogan:
    Liberation of Western Armenia will not be a frontal attack.....when it comes you or your successors won't see it coming because your Turkishness will always blind you to this fact.

    The head of "Azena" will be delivered to Turkey on a silver platter.
