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.

        How are Uber driver fares calculated? (Updated 2017 rates)
        When someone takes a ride with you, they are charged a fare plus a “Rider Fee”. The fare for UberX in Los Angeles is currently $0.15 a minute + $0.90 a mile. If there is “Surge Pricing” then the entire fare is multiplied by that number. Surge Pricing means Uber increases the fare prices during certain times of higher demand, making these hours more attractive for drivers.
        Let’s say for example someone takes a ride from West Hollywood to Downtown L.A. (which is approx. 8 miles and 30 minutes). Furthermore, let’s add a 1.3 surge. The calculation for the ride looks like this:
        (8 mi. x $0.90 + 30 min. x $0.15) x 1.3 surge + $1.65 Rider Fee = $16.86
        This is the total amount charged to the passenger.
        What percentage do Uber drivers make?
        Uber takes a commission out of the $16.86.
        After a deduction of the $1.65 Rider Fee, Drivers keep 75% of the total fare price for a given ride. Uber takes 25% of the fare.
        So here is the math for our example after Uber’s commission:
        $16.86 – $1.65 Rider Fee – ($15.21 x 0.25) = $11.41
        This is how much the driver is paid before any expenses. My rule of thumb (this may not be an accurate number for you) is that I spend about 10% on gas and other vehicle expenses and 10% on taxes on average (after all the deductions). Which in this case is calculated as follows:
        $11.41 x 0.80 = $9.13
        This is the approximate net income from the 30 minute-ride.

          It sounds like a waste of time. Also, 20% sounds on the low end for wear & tear with gas.
          Plus there should be many miles that are non-billable to get from one client to another with times without any clients if you work all day.
          Can you even get the Standard Deductible Mileage Rate 56 cents per mile deduction on your taxes?

            I used to own a small transportation company not to long ago. I can tell you, if you drive a gas driven vehicle 5 or 6 days a week steady, your maintainence/ repair costs every 90 days will be at least $200 but more likely several hundred. And at least $800+ every 160 days.
            I put $23,000 into my rig after the purchase price.
            Watch out buddy!!!
            And change the oil with extreme regularity.

              If I ever would have to go into that business, most likely will purchase a used Toyota Prius with under 50.000 miles for around $10.000
              They are extensively being used in NY for Taxis and it seams they are doing well for the rough environment. Also they have great milage in the city or short distance travels.

                  You're better off going to school, getting a certification in something, and making money like that.

                    Re: UBER Driving

                    I"m still concerned .
                    Weather your driving truck or taxi , the transport business has many comonalities .
                    I had to put a minimum of 30,000 miles per year and usually 50 to 50 thousands of miles or more to make any apreciable money. Same with taxi. If you do the cost analysis on maintainence for every 100,000 miles , your gonna be shocked. I used to h opld back a minimum of $10,000 . You are not going to be able to keep every $ you make f opr your own personal expenses. , or you"ll get shut down fast .
                    Also , I t cost me between 3 and 4 hundred $$$ per year for my persoal car auto insurance . I f I put that same car on commercial insurance , I t costs a minimum of $3,000 per year !!! You drive for uber , and your driving commercial . Have you called your insurance company ? If you try to get by on the sly , and you have an accident , and the authorities find out , your claim will be denied , and you will be left holding the bag . B e real careful on that !!!
                    Lastly , ypur gonna need to drive at least 12 hours a day 6 days a week to make any real $$$ . If you spend that much time driving on the road , you are going to experience experience more ijerks per day than a psych at a nut house .
                    Please be careful in your choice .
                    Not everyone is meant for higher education , but the 80% or so of regular people are as valuable and deserving of a decent life as the best educated , dispite this sick world scewed system . A dear uncle is beloved weather he has a hig or modest education .
                    Good luck .
