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.

  • What you think about Eurasian Union?

    What is your opinion on a possible Eurasian Union - an idea started by Putin. Such a Union would include countries like Belarus, Kazakhstan, possibly Tajikistan also. Would joining a union benefit our country or is the loss of sovereignty not worth it? Keep in mind we wouldn't border this union.

    I don't think its a good idea. None of those countries other than Russia offer much. Though good relations with Russia is important, Armenia should never diminish its independance, especially not for a union such as this.

      That map was produced by a biased org. And it doesn't even mention Armenia as a strong candidate country.

      I think Armenian officials should carefully consider the positives and negatives of joining then union carefully. I tend to lean more on the joining side because I think Armenia's market is limited, whereas the EurU would offer a much larger one for our businessmen to conduct trade, investment, and other facets of business. Moreover, I think this would lesson the suffocating style that some of our oligarchs have brought to Armenia over the past 20 years, which in turn would help small to medium sized business prosper without having to bend to the will of the well connected and large businessmen.

      I really don't see Armenia losing much political sovereignty, it already is in a very tight relationship with Russia, and it is quite obvious who would be leading this collective.
      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.

        Well by loss of political sovereignty that could come with Russia calling more of the shots, possibly our national currency being replaced, and so forth. I'm on the fence on this one, I want close relations with Russia and CSTO, but I'm not too keen on joining political unions. I don't know how much of the oligarch power would be reduced with such a union. There are powerful oligarchs in Russia also.

          There are powerful oligarchs in the EU as well, the largest of which are the technocrats who work in Brussels. My point is that Armenian businessmen would have an ocean to work in instead of a pond. As for as Russia calling more of the shots, you do realize that they already do right? But as you can see, they give Armenia a lot of leeway and they are not going to let either Turkey, Azerbaijan, Iran, or the West take Armenia away from them. Again, unless Russia wishes to lose the North Caucasus, it can NOT lose Armenia to another power.

            Well yes, there are powerful people everywhere, though I would still like to see a less oligarch controlled economy in Armenia. Russia does call many of the shots, but if you are in a political union, the amount of leeway they give will be smaller. Of course, I see this positively for our security as Russia will be more tied to our security in the region, so for the long term it may be better. I just don't want the cost of that to be Armenia going back to Armenia SSR.

              I want of course close strategic partnership with Russia, but when it comes to economy I want a more diverse amount of relations, with CIS, Iran, and EU. Our President right now is in Brussels meeting with EU officials and we may soon sign free trade agreement with EU which will be a good boost to us.

                No need of any Union or ReUnion Armenia can have more benefits if its stay out of Unions and stick to Alliances

                  I don't know, if it is good business why not? Does this mean loss of control or does this mean union of interested parties?

                    I think it would be similar to European Union...
