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.

    A stronger currency means confidence in the AMD. Means that you are not really at the crutch of the toilet paper known as the ruble.
    Yes it does as it makes everything bought from your country more expensive to others. The only reason the examples you gave successfully export is because they managed to make things that are not only superior to the competition, but also are difficult to copy. Things like carbon fiber used in German cars is difficult to replicate. Germany has a strategy designed to achieve such advantages by bringing together its industries and education systems together. I only wish we had such organization and planning in Hayastan. Economic concepts like the value of a currency have both positive and negative consequences either way you go with them. The key to success regarding currency is stability.
    Hayastan or Bust.

      It is not completely impossible to have this. Estonia had this. Again, it is constantly repeated here again and again, the oligarchy are really pieces of sh*t. It's coming to be the same thing here in the US where the wealthy seem to think that it is completely ok to justify their actions of wealth concentration.

        All this talk about economy is hollow and hopeless. As long as the Western Turks and Eastern Turks blockade the border, there can be no "competitive economy". No Switzerland or Austria. As long as the blockade is up by Armenia's two biggest neighbors, Armenia's economic gains will always be hindered. Armenia is at war with not only Azerbaijan, but with Turkey as well. A blockade is an act of war. Turkey is indeed a party to this feud. Any talk of economics should be grounded upon this understanding of Armenia's ordeal. However, this problem the nation must stand against does not mean that the rats that hold sway over Armenia's industries are to be forgiven or trusted. They must go.


        Building Armenia's wealth and livelihood comes after. Now, it is time for war.

          False! We live in the digital age. An export isn't just automobiles and machinery! Exports are Financial Services, IT services, ENTERTAINMENT, ATHLETES, and TOURISM. We can definitely EXPORT a lot more than the blockades try to stop. Be creative, be vigilant. The Turks aren't going away any time soon.

            Thats true, automobiles and machinery aren't the only things that can be exported or imported. There is also foods, goods, minerals, metals, and natural resources. There are a sundry of things that must be exported through borders. Do you truly believe that a nation of 3 million can live off of basketball players, crappy films, telemarketing, and socially inept Western European tourists? Those kinds of exports are not substantial, well unless Armenia was as big as Monaco.


            The lack of a border with Russia and being landlocked not only hinders economic progress and access to resources, it also hinders Armenia's ability to get help from the outside world and her friends. Russia only has 3-4 thousand troops in Armenia. If war broke out with Turkey and Azerbaijan, how would Russia send men to strengthen the frontline in Armenia? Teleport them?


            We should have one goal: Land corridor to the black sea. Anything else is nonsense. If you know the history of interwar Poland and the Danzig corridor, you will understand why its so important. Mainly with two genocidal neighbors.

                    Land corridor to the black sea. OK. Fantastic. We can be like Djibouti and Somalia, nations with access to the water yet no idea what to do with it. The argument I am trying to make is that the whole concept of Armenia taking over Azerbaijan or expanding the geography of the country is largely not going to happen. They are political ideologies that distract from making what we have better and competitive.

                    Industrializing and improving Armenia's economy is as much part of defeating Azerbaijan and the Turks and making Armenia the better state than all this muscle flexing of weaponary.

                    Look at the two Koreas. No one would argue that the North is winning anything, which is why they're developing nukes. They're essentially failed states that have nothing else but political blackmail going for them.
