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.

      The Soviet Union doesn't have a monopoly on star symbols, neither does it own that particular style of hat. US Marines wear the same hat with black and white colors.
      True. But I would much rather see them incorporate the Eternity Symbol instead. That symbol has so many meanings tied to Armenia and Armenianness


      and its unquestionably ours

        Politically we may be on a slippery slope.
        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

          Turks thought they were going to a fashion show I really don't see how this is significant enough for it to be mentioned. Its just a shirt and combat pants. There are at least a dozen other companies that sell that kind of wear, I think the fact that it is Israeli is just a coincidence.

            Royally, thanks.
            Read the article. Mostly accurate but I thought one mistake was made.
            I flew an old "prone" ragallo wing. As stated in article, if one pushed the bar left or right, that meant you were putting your weight opposite of the bar. To turn left, you moved the bar to the right, thereby your weight was on the left and you turned left, etc. however, the author of this article got it wrong about to the forward or back. Weight to the front or rear did --- not --- change the up or down pitch. You literally had to push the nose up or you uncontrollably went down faster and faster.
            I fly an original death trap. Many died. I had to throw my body weight forcefully into the bar to get the nose pitch to rise.
            Although you might make one less radar visible, the size is tough to hide visibly.
            Still, we need to look at all ideas in our search.

              Armenian Army uniforms do need a slight change. I think maybe teaching some of the veterans not to wear shoes but boots and that today's issue is the only one they should wear. I sometimes see pictures , shirt out no boots pants not tucked in the boot or into socks, beards and so on. Every soldier needs to wear his uniform with pride. It's not a clothing you just wear to your corner store.
              The veterans that volunteered to fight did not technically join the army - They are officially militia, similar to the territorial defense battalions of Ukraine.

                1500m x 2000m = 3000000 Sq meter = 300 hectares for only to the hill. Look at the border maps if it extends to the eastern trenches that is at least double and it will be 600+ hectares. Overall it is a small area.
                As for 600 sq meters that is a joke of a size that is equal of 6 American home lots.
                Azad you have to take into account mountain terrain. In hilly areas acreage sometime does not equal to distance. Because territory is on slopes you might be standing on one hill top and looking to another just 200 meters away but having 600 hectares of land surface between those two points.
                Also, 1 square meter is equal to 10.7 square feet. So 600 square meters is equal to 6450 square feet. An average home lot in USA starts from 7000 square feet.
                So what 600 square feel is a small sized househould land (one only).
