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 is so great because their government is using so much money , trying to keep it stable but they still fail.It's not even the natural exchange rate of the mana yet , since the government is doing everything to ban Azeri people from buying dollars.
    On the black market the exchange rate is well beyond the 2 USD/AZN
    Their dollar reserves are dissapearing faster than their oil and this means less money to buy weapons for them

The only way you gain territory is through war and we cannot fight Turkey and we don't have any ally that will. We need to strengthen our borders , Army and Economy. At the same time encourage couples to have more children. In Artsakh women receive $5000 for every child. Maybe they should do the same in Armenia. I think we would see a spike in population. Maybe one day when we are a populates country that benefits the world we shall talk about historical lands. It's pointless at the moment. Everybody knows that Turks are invaders but sadly they are respected greater then it's oppressed. Let us just learn from this.
        Victimization only works for those who have power.

        I agree because we need to concentrate in keeping and rejuvenating what we got.
        But I don't exclude the possibility that in near future, we may have to deal with Kurds about western Armenia, not Turks. With those we may find a compromise that satisfies us.
        Maybe!

          Armenia is run purely to serve the interests of oligarchs and Russia.

          Nagorno Karabakh is an actual country with a history. It is the story of an oppressed people fighting for independence, gaining their independence, and building a sovreign state with their own institutions. That's what a country is.

          Armenia did not win any war of independence. Armenia did not build national institutions in the wake of independence designed for a sovreign state. It just "inherited" the same failed structures the soviets had. A lot of the people in charge and a lot of Armenians still keep bringing up the Soviet Union. It is a failed, gone concept that is still being used by many Armenians as some kind of xxxxing model. They still run this anti-liberal, anti-market, anti-global mindset that keeps Armenia a poor nation.

          With that mindset, Armenia is choosing to be more like North Korea than South Korea. The best example I can give to my fellow Armenians is the Korean peninsula. We can either choose this backwards, nonsensical approach adopted by Russia, the Russia that can't build a car or a toothbrush, and remain insular. OR, we can adopt a more gobal mindset, build an export oriented economy, and progress alongside the world. Say what you will about the "evil, liberal, lgbt loving, "shekelist" west. People would much rather live there than Russia, Saudi Arabia, or hell even Poland and Hungary. But if it makes you conservative Armenians feel good to be conservative a$$holes, go for it. You're only harming yourself by not keeping up with the rest of the world.

              Above post by HyeSocialist.
              You are very clear in which choice you would like to see our nation take. Your reasoning is also very clear and easy to understand.
              I don't agree with it.
              The concept of socialism or communism was a noble idea. The attempted application of this noble idea was so grossly mishandled as to be criminal.
              To compare the idea or concept of capitalism to the idea or concept of communism is like comparing a smoke filled back room where cronies are contriving for financial benefits for themselves to a concerted attempt by the community to bring the community into a thoughtful cooperation.
              Unfortunately, man has completely failed in any attempt at mutual, benificial, careing cooperation. However, the sleazy deals cut in a smoke filled back room by equally sleazy conniving greed ridden bigots seems to be thriving.
              Kim Jong Ill is easy to see as loser. However, it's also easy to see the corrupt cronyism in S. Korean politics.
              Best as I can tell, you are choosing the way of the idiots that have the most money over the idiots that cannot or will not cooperate with the likes of the western elite.
              Ya, being Rockefeller sounds much better than being Kim Jong jerk. That does not mean that rocky ain't a heartless jerk.
              The path, the attitude of both are not what we or this sorryful misguided world should hold up as honorable.
              Personally, I think Rockefeller and his ilk have done more harm and murders to this world than knot head Kim Jong. Far more.
              I have tried to start a conversation exploring outside this contrived box of options, but found not one taker. Whether it's lack of imagination or some other reason I don't know.
              The conniving, fraudulent west and all their allied "gamers" are financially better off than Russia or Armenia. I can only guess that is why you express honor for the dishonorable.
              They have more money. (Gd dmn, I think my dk just got hard).

                Wow. What an out of touch remark.

                    This whole liberal vs conservative crap is simply contrived to divide society against itself. It has been working brilliantly for the elites and you guys are exhibits A B and C

                      Excellent news! This is only after 15 days injecting $4 Billions from their piggy bank Wealth Fund.

                      Azerbaijan Raids Wealth Fund as Central Bank Gets $4 Billion

                      Azerbaijan will transfer as much as 7.5 billion manat ($4 billion) of assets from its sovereign wealth fund to the central bank this year, giving it ammunition to defend the manat in the latest effort to break the grip of a currency crisis."
