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.

        I find it insulting seeing how we have more than 100 buses, yet we are not using them because bus drivers are not professionally trained, seriously, let them just invest on the mashrukta drivers with a simple manual to learn how to drive those buses, its not that hard driving a bus if you put in some effort, seriously, what is the point of buying those crappy hyundai county buses, where they could of trained the mashrukta drivers to learn how to drive the Chinese buses.

          It really is impressive how in such a small country, such an inept group of people are running the place. I mean you would think that they would hire a few people to at least make the place run properly while they loot the country. But nah, they cant even manage that.

          • Anti-Russia sanctions signal serious losses for Armenia’s economy - opinion

            13:58 • 31.07.17










            The United States’ recently adopted sanctions against Russia will economically have a serious influence also on Armenia whose imports and exports are largely related that country, according to an economist.

            At a news conference on Monday, Vilen Khachatryan noted that 22% of Armenia’s exports go to Russia whose economy is now facing the major challenge. “What we see here is our number one ally facing sanctions. Also, most of Armenia’s imports - which are not limited to Russian goods – come from Russia. That’s an [economic] blow too, as it implies a rise in the prices of products,” he noted.

            As another major concern, Khachatryan highlighted the possible losses for the Armenian employment migrants now residing in the country. Noting that layoffs first of all affect foreign nationals, the economist said he expects their return to Armenia to later have also its societal impact.

              So... we all knew this was coming. Why is he upset? Sounds like more of a reason to gear up your economy to work closer with the EU, US, India, and China. Russia can stay a political friend, but they have no idea how to run an economy...unless they're running it into the ground.

                Indeed, this is the best moment for our country to trade with other countries, it has no choice either, Russia's economy is going in the ground and people will get more pissy about it.

                  Honestly it's not like we should prefer anything over the other. Its just that the EU and the US are big economies and making products for those markets means you pretty much qualify to sell in Latin America and India. They have higher engineering standards, and it only makes sense. Plus, small countries benefit the most from globalization because we can access big markets without causing much threat to bigger economies. We should trade with the world, not just sell tomatoes to Russia.

                  • China building new embassy in Armenia. May Armenia be a window to the East for the West, and a window to the West for the East. There might even be new air travel linking Armenia and China.

                    We need to have a better investment climate for non-Russian businesses (again, this is not an anti-Russian statement, this is a pro business statement), so we can have favorable relations with the Chinese, the Indians, the Russians, the EU, and US.

                    • Positive news from our Hye comrades in the Kremlin. The Investors Club in Armenia is financing some big hydroelectric projects in Armenia, and the payback periods seem justified and not extortionary.

                      http://investorsclub.am/en/projects

                      Hydroelectric and Waste to Energy are solid investments because they are indigenous to our land! I hope to see this level of enthusiasm also in Solar energy. Bravo!
