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.

  • Armenian Migration (Artagaxt)

    It's allready been a week that I am in Armenia, and many things have changed on the psychological level since my last year's visit. 90% of my friends are thinking and preparing to leave the country. While last year only 4 of my friends were preparing to migrate, now almost EVERYONE in the country is!! This is a very critical problem and action must be taken.

    The main reasons of Migration according to them are:

    - Unemployement

    - Corruption

    - Geopolitical instability (NKR)

    - Closed borders

    - Conscription

    all of this + the recent events in Armenia(March 1) have led the people to hopelessness and distrust to the extreme.

    What should the people of Armenia, the Authorities, and the Diaspora do to fix this problem?

    Re: Armenian Migration (Artagaxt)

    I guess we all have different experiences bro. Id say other than the panic being created in Armenia by the opposition and CIA agents not much is different in Armenia today. In my surroundings I say 50% would leave if they have an opportunity. But this has to do with Armenians naivety which is being encouraged by outside forces of evil. Many people here think it's paradise everywhere els just because every day they hear that its hell in Armenia. I actually would like to see all those who want to leave Armenia leave Armenia and see what's really out there. Maybe they should go to lovely Greece LOL! Trust me dude many will come back right away.

      exactly!! That's what I mean!! It's true that we have many of these problems, but they just keep exaggerating and exaggerating things. This is more of a physchological problem than social-economic for Armenia.

        Now do some of you understand what is meant my psy-ops and psychological warfare?

        Sueda, assuming you are Armenian, I think your friends are overstating things by a wide margin, and this is not typical of my experience in recent years nor with people I speak to on a regular basis.
        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.

          There is migration out of Armenia, but migrations numbers have been steadily dropping. People sometimes don't realise that unemployment is worldwide, not only in Armenia. Corruption has been decreasing as well thanks to Pres. Sargsyan. The NKR conflict is a very poor excuse to migrate. In all, people migrate as they have an illusion that anything in the "West" is better, while similar problems exist in the West or Russia.

          The one thing I will readily critisise the current government for is the passport regulation. I know someone who is Armenian and immigrated to Armenia from Tbilisi, Georgia, and has been working hard here in Armenia for years, has a family already, and so on. But he has been waiting more than 5, 6 years to get Armenian citizenship, and still hasn't. He has no past history of crime, and is a hard working Armenian who wants to live in Armenia. I really don't understand why they make getting such citizenship so hard for fellow Armenians who have moved back, are working hard, and have proven to be dedicated citizens. It just doesn't make sense. We should look to Israel as there it's very easy for a J3w to get their citizenship when moving there. If government wants Armenians moving back readily to the homeland, they need to really fix this process or else Armenians will just move back where they came from if they can't be treated as citizens after years of living and working in their homeland. It's embarrassing honestly.

            My relatives there love to complain like thats all they know how to do but not one of them likes to work. They want to be taken care of by the system like in soviet times. as much as I hate the unelected government and the idiotic "oppozitsia" I hate the mentality of most people there in Armenia. Armos need shock therapy into waking up! Another thing I notice is that a middle class Armo in Yerevan will gladly become a lower class American in los. I personally know some one who had several apartments in Yerevan a normal job and a good family but he constantly complained. Several years ago he sold everything and moved to los and is now driving a taxi and barely making a living BUT HE NEVER COMPLAINS ANYMORE! Like what the hell is wrong with these people LOL

              I believe so, they exaggerate when they want to show the situation in Armenia to a point that if it were like that, thousands of people would die daily, which thankfully is not the case. The problem is many of them are brainwashed by opposition media. While I am not against the opposition, nor with it, I believe that what they are doing is wrong. Same goes to the regime, their media shows Armenia as 100% paradise. two very extreme things here.

                I hope what is written here is true:

                Sargsyan calls on agencies and experts to be ‘prudent’ when dealing with migration statistics


                President Serzh Sargsyan urged experts and government agencies to look deeper into migration processes during a meeting devoted to migration issues in the country, which was attended by prime-minister, head of the police, and other top ranking officials.

                As reported by the press office of the president, Sargsyan said he was very closely watching public debates on migration issues and believes that neither experts nor heads of relevant government agencies attempted or did anything to thoroughly explain the situation before trumpeting some figures. He also said all should rely on objective trends in their public remarks

                “If we do not pay sufficient attention to the periodically published comments on migration figures and trends, then speculation and surface analysis are moved to the forefront,” President Sargsyan noted.

                As a recent example he said that after the publication of latest data on passenger transportation, a phrase "45 thousand people left Armenia in 4 months" has just become a slogan of certain circles. The president said if someone took the trouble to study the dynamics of migration process in a monthly or quarterly term, he or she could easily see that the picture in October and December is different , because 40,000 of those 45,000 who left Armenia are back home

                  Four silly little fantasists (Suedia, Serjik, Armanen, Mos). If they were on the Titanic they'd be shouting "what iceberg, I saw no iceberg, it's all a brainwashing plot by a rival shipping company to scare the passengers!". Meanwhile, the ship sinks / the country goes down the plug-hole.

                    Worry about your own country that let's an aussie dictate the news. Corruption is rampant in the uk as murdochgate has shown us.
