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.

    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.

    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!
    If solar energy reaches the same efficiency as nuclear power (if not more) all of our energy problems will be fixed, as I stated, we should not close down our nuclear power plant yet, Thorium should be kept a close eye on, it has great potential.

      How much longer do you think Metsamor NPP can be kept running with the type of technology and fault lines it is sitting on?

        As long as our mod wants it to be, they should really invest on thorium, even if it is at its infancy, much less deadlier if anything dangerous happens.

          EAEU membership row between Armenia's RPA and Yelk continues

          August 19, 2017 - 17:36 AMT
          PanARMENIAN.Net - A spokesperson for the ruling Republican Party of Armenia, Eduard Sharmazanov has described talks on leaving the Eurasian Economic Union as "false agenda," RFE/RL Armenian Service reports.
          Edmon Marukyan from the opposition Yelk bloc urged a month earlier the necessity to leave the Union.
          Speaking to reporters after an RPA meeting on Thursday, August 17, Sharmazanov said that the Yelk bloc has offered no coordinated position on the issue.
          Yelk lawmaker Lena Nazaryan said, however, that the bloc does have a coordinated position, which is expressed in their program unveiled ahead of elections to the National Assembly.
          Nazaryan added that there might be different opinions concerning the right time for submitting a proposal to leave the EAEU.

          • Meanwhile.. Turkey seeks negotiations with Eurasian Customs Union

            August 19, 2017 - 13:41 AMT PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkey wants to start negotiations with the Eurasian Customs Union, which consists of members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said on Friday, August 18, according to Anadolu Agency.
            The EAEU consists of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia.
            In recent years, Turkey has been stressing the importance of using local currencies in foreign trade with its neighbors and major trade partners like Russia, Iran and China to lower the currency conversion costs.
            "Our target is to use national currencies in foreign trade. If we do that, we can eliminate the negative effects of foreign exchange volatilities," Zeybekci added.

                Careful now. Seashells have more value than the paper money is printed on.

                  Here is a country with massive amounts of money that needs help finding places to invest. Why not Armenia? A country with good relations with the United States and the European Union. Let the Turkmen invest in our country building solar and wind plants, if they want, let them invest in start up companies in Armenian technology. Or Armenian movies. Or Whatever! Let's give them a place to park their money.

                    Armenia, in general, has great potential, it is the top 50 freest economies in the world by far, by far the only thing our country lacks, is rule of law, which many countries suffer even Georgia.

                      You bet it is. Armenia also hard cordial relations with almost every country except for the Turks and Pakis. If anything, that's more of a positive for us.
