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.

    • why do let in the media to photo these guys and put it all over the internet. jebus on a bus, these guys' faces, their names should not be anywhere near a camera. they are no less important than a sniper or a recon infiltrator.

        Armenia installs new anti-hail stations within pilot program




        Yerevan /Mediamax/. Minister of Emergency Situations of Armenia Davit Tonoyan visited Artashavan community in Aragatsotn marz to get familiar with installation of new anti-hail stations.

        In the frames of the pilot program two “Elia-3” type stations have been installed in Aragatsotn and one in Armavir marz, which created a chain of protection.

        The stations will be ready for operation in the next few days and will provide reliable protection for 45,000ha of agricultural lands from hail damage.

        The anti-hail cannons will be applied according to the data from the radiolocation station, which will secure high accuracy of targeting.

        The Ministry of Emergency Situations will ensure continuity of the program based on the pilot version in order to protect agricultural areas in other Armenian marzes.

        This is a rather odd way of fixing the hail problem Armenian farmers have, as much as I've seen, Armenia, Russia and Georgia are the only countries to be operating this extreme but efficient level of fixing hail storms, they're called Anti Hail stations.

                  The evidence is against these devices sadly.

                  Scientific evidence


                  There is no evidence in favor of the effectiveness of these devices. A 2006 review by Jon Wieringa and Iwan Holleman in the journal Meteorologische Zeitschrift summarized a variety of negative and inconclusive scientific measurements, concluding "the use of cannons or explosive rockets is a waste of money and effort".

                  There is also reason to doubt the efficacy of hail cannons from a theoretical perspective.[4] For example, thunder is a much more powerful sonic wave, and is usually found in the same storms that generate hail, yet it doesn't seem to disturb the growth of hailstones. Charles Knight, a cloud physicist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado said in a July 10, 2008 newspaper article that "I don't find anyone in the scientific community who would validate hail cannons, but there are believers in all sorts of things. It would be very hard to prove they don't work, weather being as unpredictable as it is."

                  Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
                  Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
                  Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

                    Not the hail canons londontsi, the Anti hail systems, these bastards are technologically impressive but have limited use, Georgia seems to be the most invested in it using over 450,000 hectors? I think, to fix their hail issue, the one we have is the newest version, very recent too. Odd move from our government.

                    • We may be getting Yak-130. Irkut representatives were in Armenia for 3 days meeting officials and I can't help but notice it happens near the same time a new $100 million Russian arms loan was granted to us.
