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 figured that. It also seems the Azeris are flooding Armenian sites to find out their actual losses.

      Great job stating the obvious HyeSocialist...I'm glad you're paying attention.
      Someone asked if we think the ceasefire would hold and I was just pointing out that it had already been violated.

        Armenia has started to. Although I'm sure the equipment used by the NKR forces is not as diversified. More needs to be done via China, South Africa, etc.

          There was nothing antiarmenian or proazeri in that article mentioned earlier. I wonder about the motives of some of the members here sometimes. Here is what you should be worried about.
          Italian Sponda Sud reports about ISIS militants fighting in Karabakh on side of Azerbaijan

          Italian Sponda Sud reports that an unconfirmed number of ISIS militants are fighting in Karabakh on the side of Azerbaijan these days.

          According to the source, many extremists that fought under flags of the "Islamic caliphate" have gathered in Azerbaijan. During the last months, mass media in Ankara and Baku wrote about Azerbaijani legionaries that have returned from Syria and Iraq. About 300 were killed in fighting, but more than 2,500 are in the territory of Azerbaijan - their new recruiter. Aliyev can send them to Nagorny Karabakh together with the regular army.

            I highly doubt this. I know Armenians have been talking about this since friday but it cant be true. This would make absolutely zero sense for the following reasons

            First of all, extremist Sunni's consider Shiites the biggest enemy of Islam as is. To make matters many times worse, Azerbaijan is one of the most secular Islamic countries in the world. To Islamic State there isn't a greaer enemy of their cause than people like Azeris. Even beyond those factors, groups like Islamic State don't recognize states.

              But they do recognize money. They are very much a friend of Turkey and will do as it asks since they are being forced out of Iraq and Syria. How could you say this is unlikely when we had the same jihadists fighting in the war last time?

                Haykakan, did you swallow Naira badalian's bait too?
                How does she know there are 2500 of them? Did she count them? Does Azery mod report to her?
                I know for a fact that our MOD would tell her to get lost.
                So, do we have to worry, really?
                I consider her working for anti Armenian agendas most of the time.

                    the last time the factors were different. both countries just broke out of the soviet union when fighting began. nobody knew whether these countries would stay secular, or whether they would go back to their historic religious tendencies. So it very much looked like a Christian v. Islamic fight at the start. However, many of the mujahadeen left once it became apparent it had nothing to do with religion. Also, back then, the divide between Shiite and Sunni was nowhere as great as it is today.

                    Today we've had 20 years of Azerbaijan going around and declaring how its the most secular Islamic country in the world, and declaring its love for Israel at every corner.

                    The factors are very much different.

                    However your Turkey theory could be true. Since everyone already knew the Azeris couldn't fight to save their own mothers, I wouldn't be surprised if they took such precautions.
