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.

      Yep! Hovanian has disgraced himself enough and I do not trust his claims of harassment.
      For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
      to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

        I don't get why he doesn't sell the houses on his development at prices the average family in Armenia can afford. He's not alone either. Why is every real estate development in Armenia geared towards outside Armenians with deep pockets rather than ROA citizens? What's wrong with not making a 500% profit on your investment?

          A 6% unemployment rate is nothing compared to the rest of the world. I thought it would be much worse.

          Unemployment rate in Armenia drops by 0.4% to 6.6%

          The unemployment rate in Armenia dropped by 0.4% as of July 1, 2011 to 6.6%, labour and social security minister Artur Grigorian said today.

            I don't know how reliable Wikipedia is, but read the part on the economy of Armenia, and Azerbaijan and we are seriousness low compared to them. Its somewhere of 15 billion dollar GDP for us and like 90 billion for them. If this is true they can overwhelm us with more weaponry. I understand we have the good defensive positions and Artsakh means something to us but with Azeri propaganda to build up nationalism in their soldiers plus the better economy and weaponry what solutions do you guys see?

              They do not have a better economy. They have much more systemic corruption and they're entire economy is based on gas and oil to a lesser extent. Much of the money that they get from oil goes into the hands of 10 or so clans who run the entire nation. Go outside of baku and you will see that the people live no better than their Armenian counter-parts in villages. In fact they have a lower standard of living than Armenians.

                I understand the whole corruption issue, but we have the same thing happening in Armenia. So from our 15 billion GDP most is going to our mafiosos.

                  Not on the same level we don't. They are much more corrupt, and the whereas there are maybe 70 families in Armenia that run the majority of the business in Armenia, in azerbaijan that number is less than 15.

                    As Armanen explained, the level of corruption in Baku is far worse. That is not to say Armenia doesn't have corruption, as it has immense problems, but the situation in Baku is worse. A large portion of that GDP goes to a few families to spend overseas however they please. Furthermore, another significant part of the GDP goes into many unnecessary projects (hotels and resorts, massive government building, statues) where it is essentially wasted instead of going to education, health care, or defense.

                    When it comes to defense spending, Armenia gets much of its weapons at a discount price, so you can essential multiply Armenia's defense spending by 2 if you want the true figure. Add to this the fact that Armenia has all of the strategic positions in Artsakh, and the fact that the moral in Armenian army is far stronger as we have a reason to fight, and the odds favor us.

                    You must remember during the last war Azerbaijan's monetary advantage was far greater, Russia was not Armenia's ally, Artsakh's army had no organizations and Armenia won. Add to this the fact that Azerbaijan's GDP will be declining every year as 80-90% of their GDP comes from their quickly depleting natural resources, and chances favor Armenia.

                    Let us just hope it never comes to that, some sort of Agreement can be reached, and Armenians can began focusing on internal issues, the corruption which you mentioned, and the oligarchs who ruin the country.
