      ***Reminder About Storage Shortage ***   02/15/2018

      Hello, everyone. I wanted to just posts a little reminder. Anything we post in the forum takes up space.  Many of us agonized for days and weeks when we almost lost the forum over lack of space. Pat and I spent weeks cleaning up and getting rid of/cutting down threads many of us loved and will miss because of the issue. I am seeing lots and lots of gifs and pictures being posted. Some posts even including multiple gifs and them people continuously quoting those.  There is no need for 10 people to quote the same post with a crazy amount of pictures or gifs in it.  I get that gifs are a really fun way to express thoughts falan, but I ask that you guys to be considerate and not excessive in the amount of images and gifs you post. Twitter, Insta, YT and FB should be just fine. But gifs really do start taking up a lot of space. And before I get accused of holding double standards, this applies to all show sub-forums. It especially applies to Cukur/SBA/FHvK and ATB.  You can still post gifs in the form of links. People will just have to take the extra step to click on those links in order to view the gif.  Again, I'm not saying we need to completely stop posting them. Let's just apply some limitations on how many get posted at the same time. I really don't think any of us wants to have to go through what we just went to. Surely not any time soon. Also, I plan on deleting the actors and actress threads for shows. Most leads have their own thread as it is, and photos of less popular actors can be posted in the general thread for the show. Every show has such a thread anyway. I will be trimming down all backstage photos threads and keep them down to 50 pages at most.  I will also be deleting gif threads for ended shows. I have been going through them and most of the gifs are displaying as broken links anyway.  I also ask that you please remember to please clean out you mailboxes periodically and get rid of any large messages or messages you no longer need. People understand the situation. No one will be offended if you leave a conversation.  I'd appreciate it if everyone  took a second to acknowledge that they've read this announcement he/she has read it.    Thank you, and have a great day.

  1. Dear Alana,if you mean the page of this stupid girls or better women,here it is




    But you wont understand anything because they are Greeks and they write in greek.

    Do you have fb acount dear?

  2. Thank you for your feedback on the topic of men in Engin's photos.

    All the fans answers made me try to search for more information about male-bonding in Turkey. I found excellent  information such as the following:

    "As distinguished from the Western standard, where male body contact is allowed

    only in emotive situations such as sport commemorations or emotional contexts,

    male bonding is a very important aspect of male identity in Turkey. While close

    body contact with the opposite sex in public is usually viewed with prejudice

    according to the local decency code, body contact among men is very common. In

    addition, men kiss each other on the face twice, as a common greeting, they walk on

    the street embracing each other and they even massage each other in public as a way

    to express their friendship."

    This is a part of a study made in Turkey.

    Male-bonding is rooted in the Turkish society.

    I didn't post this on the main page because I felt that most of his fans thought that I was offending Engin, or that I wanted to gossip,which I'm not. I was just curious about Turkish culture.

    Thnks again!:)


  3. :flowerysmile: I apologize for the blunder I made Meltemcim and I hope that I haven't ruined your mood. Thank you for understanding! :mavi_heart:

  5. I really have a hard time believing that they amputated the boys arms for theft. I can imagine that it was done, as I said, to become a beggar - by someone in his own country. Yes, it is interesting - but would be hard for a young person to be here for very long...not much to do. Thanks for the link...I will check it out. What are you studying?

  6. visit here...I wish people could. I'd love to have family and friends visit me here. They'd love the experience. Where in Greece do you live? I have only been there for a short time, and only to Athens. Greece seems like paradise in photos...the most gorgeous scenery anywhere - delicious food...incredible history, art...

  7. Okay, that sounds more plausible. I know that there are beggars here who have had their limbs amputated by horrible people in other countries, and then taken here to beg and make them money...Argh! I see little kids...many come from Yemen - little ones are used in such horrible ways. It would be very very hard for a single woman to come here without a job and a sponsor. You can't just v...

  8. Also, I wonder how the girl was allowed into the country to visit her boyfriend? That would not have been allowed. You can't get an entry visa unless you are sponsored - especially women. It sounds very suspicious to me, vasilia.

  9. Hmmm...I haven't seen anything like that. When the authorities behead people or cut off hands, it is done in a public square in a place we call "Chop Chop Square. I doubt a policeman did this - he has no authority. The court would sentence the person, and then an amputation would take place. I doubt it happened to a young kid. Can you send the link to the travel story? I'd love to r...

  10. now. Also, women with their faces uncovered (like me) were a rarity, so men chased us like were all Pamela Anderson types ready and willing to have sex at the drop of a hat. Crazy stuff like men throwing their phone numbers into your grocery cart or car window. We also had to put up with men walking around with sticks to enforce hair covering, etc. However, I loved how different it all was...

  11. Yes, it when I first moved here 17 years ago, life was much more difficult than it is now with computers and satellite dishes:) We were much more isolated. Phone calls back home were expensive, and so few and far between, and there were only two TV stations in English - both boring as hell with horrible shows from the 1970s.

    Before 9/11 there were many more Americans/Westerners here than ...

  12. Thank you so much, Liz, dear...Big Hug!!!

  13. Dogum gunu kutlu olsun, Happy birthday my dearest Meltem, may you have many more amazing years <3 - Your personal DJ, Liz.

      Miss Bennet! Oh, this makes my day! I didn't even know this place existed (I know, still dense with techie stuff) and luckily found it. Thank you so much, dear friend. I've missed you: your words, your brain, your creativity, and your music. Love you, Liz.

  14. Happy Birthday, dear Hilal! May this new year of life bring a bounty of joy, good health, and love from family and friends.

  15. ♥ Hey Melts. Sorry I didn't post for so long in my playlist, i'm posting something for you right away, WITH translation. ;]
