Dear forum members,
You are all asked to participate in a symbolic 1-day forum shutdown to honour the victims of the greatest tragedy to befall our nation, the Armenian genocide of 1915. While our constant activity in all walks of life is the greatest proof to our survival, and the ultimate failure of all plans of our annihilation, it is important for us to take this day to commemorate the heavy cost paid by our ancestors which, thankfully and evidently, was not paid in vain.
For purposes of "administrability", this shutdown will be based on Pacific time (LA time), as a great number of our posters are from there.
For West Coast inhabitants, shutdown is effective from 12AM April 24 to 11:59PM on April 24.
For East Coasters, shutdown is effective from 3AM April 24 to 2:59AM April 25
For the Frenchmen, shutdown is effective from 9AM April 24 to 8:59AM April 25
For England, shutdown is from 8AM April 24 to 7:59AM April 25
For Armenia, shutdown is from 12PM April 24 to 11:59AM April 25
For any location I may have omitted, you can check
I will close the most active threads for the length of the shutdown. Edo, please feel free to re-open them if you see that I haven't done so when the time comes.
