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.

    Dilijan international school to open in September 2014 (photos)


    The international school in Armenia’s resort town of Dilijan will welcome its first students on September 1, 2014, former head of Troyka Dialogue company, founder of “Dilijan” international school Ruben Vardanyan told the reporters today at the construction site.

    He stressed that $20 million has already been spent for the construction of the school. Overall, $180 million will be needed to accomplish the project.

    “Children of different nationalities will study here. After graduating this school they will have an opportunity to enter world famous universities. It is a very important project for us,” he said.

    “It was my dream. I dreamt that my children will study in Armenia and such an authoritative school be established here,” Ruben Vardanyan said.

    He stressed that his children will study in Dilijan school only in case they manage to pass the exams. He stressed that the school will play a significant role in the region.

    The school comes to replace the current high school. About 70% will get scholarship which will be formed from the annual tuition and living fee that will amount to $30,000 food inclusive. High-quality teachers from different countries as well as local specialists will give lessons in the school.

    Ruben Vardanyan convinced that the school already enjoys interest especially by foreigners living in Armenia and Georgia as well as by Diaspora Armenians. Overall, 650 pupils will get education, the number of who is expected to reach 1,000 in future.

    Currently about 500 people, of which 100 are from Dilijan and the others from different towns and villages of Armenia are working on the construction site.

    Armenia’s president Serzh Sargsyan has paid today a working visit to Dilijan to see the process of construction of the international school on his own.

    Ruben Vardanyan stressed that $20 million has already been spent for the construction of the school. Overall, $180 million will be needed to accomplish the project...

      Personally I don't think that new church is that bad looking, only real problem is that bottom tier has too much red and not enough black and other colors sprinkled through it, at any rate it still looks way better than the st gregory illuminator cathedral

        For me it is a matter of using the scarce resources wisely. Armenia is not blessed with many resources but it does have a overabundance of churches. Spending that much time, money, stone, material, labor..on something that there is way more supply of then demand makes no sense. I think this whole big church building thing is about hey look my xxxx is bigger then yours crap.

          Yeah I agree, but that is pretty much how all the 10001 churches in Ani got built. Though I will say that if they are to build other things, they should build them to the same standard as these churches. Europe is filled with buildings that have the same or similar architectural features of their Cathedrals, from gothic to baroque, etc. Armenia should follow in that path and utilize it's own architecture for some non religious buildings as well

                  Zvartnots Airport to Receive $102 Million Investment

                  YEREVAN (Arka)—The Armenian government approved on Thursday a master plan for Yerevan’s Zvartnots International Airport for the 2013-2017 period. The plan calls for $102 million of investment into the improvement and further modernization of the airport and the construction of a new building.

                  According to Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan, the $102 million investment will be undertaken by Armenia International Airports CJSC, the company granted a 30-year concession agreement for the management of operations at the airport. The company is owned by Argentine company Corporation America, which is in turn owned by Armenian-Argentine businessman Eduardo Eurnekian.

                  Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan also noted that the old airport building is physically worn out and requires reconstruction, which will need $15 million to $20 million.

                  Sargsyan said the old building of the airport is a unique example of Soviet modernism, “which is why our architects want more discussion on its future.” He said that a solution will ideally be found that can preserve that piece of architecture, which has both historical and cultural value.

                  Sargsyan mentioned that there is one interesting proposal which suggests building a park at the airport that would house replicas of the many significant buildings.

                  In April this year, Armenia International Airports CJSC asked the government for permission to demolish the old building of the airport. The news caused public outcry. Many civil organizations and architects rejected the idea, arguing that the aging and dilapidated building is an historically and artistically significant “monument” that should be preserved.

                  The Town Planning Council of the Yerevan Municipality rejected the company’s application saying it would ask the mayor of Yerevan to recognize the old building as an architectural monument.

                  The old airport building was inaugurated in 1980. The latest building was added in 2007. The airport is located 12 km west of Yerevan.

                  The Armenian government approved on Thursday a master plan for Yerevan’s Zvartnots International Airport for the 2013-2017 period. The plan calls for $102 million of investment into the improvement and further modernization of the airport and the construction of a new building.
