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.

    This talk about the EU - Dumbest thing I have ever heard. The EU would have been one of the worst decisions the state could have made.

    There are 1.2 million Armenians in Russia, to abandon Russia is to abandon them. EU-Wet dream is just that - a dream.

    Also, joining the EU is not magically going to solve any problems. Look at Romania, its still as corrupt as ever.
    Yup, to save the 1.2 million Armenians (not even thinking to bring them back), let's join some mediocre union and come back complaining that the 1.2 million have become 2
    So the Armenians in Russia are the ones who govern every step Armenia takes. Lovely!

      I now firmly believe that maybe 90% of our problems are from inside our country, inside us. Something must be done about that.
      Europe or Russia, blockade or open borders. Recognition of genocide or no recognition. However important, those things are not as crucial as Armenia's socio economic problems that are generated from bad government.
      The difference between Russia and the EU is that Russia will never care about how corrupt any nation is as long as the leader of that nation is loyal to them.
      Perfect examples: Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan.
      For how many years has Nazarbayev ruled? Aliyevs?
      Does Russia ever hand out a loan with preconditions set? Do they track how the loan is spent and audit it? Never.
      On the other hand, the EU carefully tracks where the money is going and how it's spent. Also, as corruption is fought, they come up with bigger loans and grants.
      Tell me what are these Russian companies that control many sectors in Armenia are doing?
      Have you heard about the railway company carrying out any projects? The rolling stocks are the ones from the USSR and in terrible condition.
      I think I don't need to go over the famous electricity management the Russians were carrying out before the great Electric Yerevan movement hit the streets and sent them back to Russia.
      Are you aware that last year when the Dram hit 575 from 412 vs $1 in a couple of hours, the Russian companies were buying Dollar from the Armenia market because there was no more Dollar being sold in Russia?
      I agree that the problem is internal. But believe me that nothing will be solved unless these Armenian officials are overseen by someone.
      Now the EEU is great for the corrupt officials, because it's very very lose on corruption compared to the AA/DCFTA agreement we were going to sign with the EU.
      How does the EEU promote SMEs? It only promotes huge oligarch-owned companies that sell big amounts of products in Russia.

            Let go of EU EEU stuff so you can concentrate.

              neither joining EU nor EEU nor NAFTA nor Shanghai Five nor Galactic Republic is going to solve Armenia's biggest problem, which is corruption and mismanagement of the state's resources and suppression of its potential.

              It has to come from within. How this internal change with manifest, I don't know and it's a separate topic of debate. But as long as the ruling class are people who've had Soviet ideology towards the state ingrained in their head, we won't see the level of change needed.



              *Saw a couple of similar posts after I posted mine, so apologies for the repetition. But, I'm very passionate about this -- this idea that so many Armenians like to spew that joining one group over the other is somehow going to solve any of these problems.

                --- NAFTA or Galactic republic ---
                I agree with you and others regarding your point in above post.
                NAFTA was too funny, thanks for the humor. However, I think you have short changed a Galactic cooperation treaty, lol.
