New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

    In fact all the business success of Gazprom in Ukraine, Belarus, Cenral Asia is built on corruption, collusions that damage the peoples' interests of those countries.

    Partial tolerance? Guess you are part of the 11%

    Public opinion surveys are things that can not be trusted in post-soviet states. One should also bear in mind that 80 per cent of Ukrainians who agree to participate in all these surveys are pensioneers. It is a well-known fact here.

      You had 20 years to get rid of bureaucratic clans, oligarchs and energically inefficient industry. You have democracy after all.

        So because Stalin was a bloody tyrant 60 years ago, makes whatever Obama is doing A-OK. And Russia cant say jack about it.


        The number of 60,000,000 of Stalin's victims
        ascends to the Solzhenitsyn and was widely
        discussed by the Soviet/Russian media
        between 1987 - 2004.
        That is beyond the realms of sanity, given that the U.S.S.R's population was about 160.000.000 or 170.000.000 before Stalin's big bloodbaths in the 1930's. Where the vast bulk of deaths under his rule took place.

        Then you add in WW2 losses the U.S.S.R's population would've been waaaay below 100.000.000 because whatever you may have heard Russians dont breed like rats. Of course OTL the Soviet population was 150.000.000 odd post-war. And also it should be said the vast bulk of people sent to the GULAGs came back alive.

          Lol. There have been no liberal parties in government and paliament so there are no liberal lies in Ukraine. In the ex-USSR all the mainstream parties' declared programs are pure socialism in spite of the fact that these parties are owned by oligarchs and top bureaucrats just like Communist party of the USSR was fully contolled by several people


          In Ukraine, Belarus, the RF etc. plenty of elderly and average age people are electoral zombies who do what they did in the USSR repeatedly and traditionally vote for Soviet bureacratic clans that promise the advent of full communism or some kind of "paradise". And these zombies have never tried to call to question those in power for failing to keep promises.

          That's the Homo Sovieticus mentality, behaviour, attitudes that should be overcome if any of these countries want some progress.

            I see that you shares the opinion of many American members that in Europe everybody is socialist. In Belgium we are more socialist than in RF or Belarus.

            Electoral zombies ? They simply want a decent quality of life and tranquility. It existed at the time of SU but not today.

                При этом в Центре Разумкова отмечают, что геополитические ориентации имеют четко выраженный региональный характер: на Западе страны доминирует европейская ориентация, на Юге и Востоке - пророссийская, а в Центре ситуация постоянно меняется. Так, если в ноябре 2009 года 50,9% жителей Центрального региона отдавали предпочтение развитию отношений с Россией, и лишь 25,9% - отношениям со странами ЕС, то в октябре 2011-го ситуация была кардинально другой: 47,7% жителей региона считали приоритетным развитие отношений с ЕС и 29,1% - с Россией.

                The Razumkov Center states that geopolitical orientation (in Ukraine )
                depends on region. West is oriented on Europe, South and East - Russia,
                the situation in the Center of the Ukraine is constantly changing.
                In Nov. 2009 50.9% of respondents from the Central Region considered
                relationship with Russia a priority and only 25.9 - consider a priority
                relationship with EU, but in Oct. 2011 47.7 of respondents from the
                Central Region considered a priority relationship with EU and only
                29.18 with Russia.


                http://ru.tsn.ua/ukrayina/opros-92-u...-k-rossii.html

                70% опрошенных хотели бы, чтобы Украина и Россия были независимыми, но дружественными государствами: с открытыми границами, без виз и таможен. 16% - хотели бы, чтобы Украина и Россия объединились в одно государство, 12% респондентов считают, что отношения Украины и России должны быть такими же, как и с другими государствами: с закрытыми границами, визами и таможнями.


                70% of Ukrainian respondents want Ukraine and Russia to independent and friendly states with open borders. 16% want Ukraine and Russian unite in one state. 12% want Ukraine and Russia to have the same relationships as with other states ( borders, visas, customs )

                http://gazeta.ua/ru/articles/politic...rossiej/412244

                Согласно результатам опросам, 82,6% украинцев поддерживают государственную независимость Украины.

                According to the polls 82.6% Ukrainians support Ukrainian independence.
                Interesting, I never heard that the changes was so rapid.

                  Even if you may have some points I doubt that corruption in itself is able to create a demand for those items...

                  Now how would the transportation be arranged?

                  Public opinion surveys are things that can not be trusted in post-soviet states. One should also bear in mind that 80 per cent of Ukrainians who agree to participate in all these surveys are pensioneers. It is a well-known fact here.
                  Can anything you disagree with be trusted?

                  From the article:
                  With respect to views of the U.S., younger people in all three countries tend to give the U.S. a more favorable rating than do older generations. The difference is most pronounced when comparing 18-29 year olds with those 65 years and older. In Lithuania, for example, 82% of those under age 30 hold a favorable view of the U.S., compared with 61% of those 65 years and above. Similarly, about two-thirds of younger Ukrainians (68%) and Russians (67%) give the U.S. positive marks, compared with smaller numbers of those 65 and older in each country (55% and 41%, respectively).
                  In Ukraine, views of Russia are consistent across age groups. Among Lithuanians, however, older age groups tend to have a more favorable opinion of Russia than do younger people. For instance, among those 65 years or older, about six-in-ten (59%) express a favorable opinion of Russia as compared with less than half (46%) among those between the ages of 18 and 29.

                  And further about that pensioners...

                    I expected something like that.
                    You see one of the reasons Ukrainians elected Janukovich
                    was the hope of the part of population, that he is going to
                    improve relationship with Russia.
                    And in their understanding good relationships with Russia
                    should mean some economic benefits; cheap gaz etc...

                    Russia is more in talking about Slavic unity and common great past,
                    then in giving Ukraine economic concessions.
                    So, part of Ukrainian people who voted for Janukovich
                    for economical reasons is disappointed.


                    And it correctly most visible in the Center of Ukraine.
                    Because the West of Ukraine in traditionally Europe oriented;
                    East is populated with big % of ethnic Russians,
                    but the center is populated by Ukrainians, who are more neutral
                    regarding Russia.
                    Dixi.

                    Beware of Occam's razor !!!!

                        So mainstream parties are accepting fact that electorate is not happy with capitalism and its useless freedoms fetishism and has opinion socialism fits better their vital interests.
                        What sort of progress do you have in mind? I read almost every day surveys on economic situation in the World and cannot discern no traces of progress. Only recently France’s rating by S&P was lowered. Debts of main states in EU are about 80% of GDP while US economy with its surreal state debt is more imaginable than real. I wonder how it can be. May be main players have made agreement to regard US $$ as money for some time while existing World order and economy will die gracefully

                          Most of its time in1920-1950 the SU was a state with its citizens living in abject poverty even in comparison with modern post-Soviet states plus it did not have any tranquility in 1920-1950s. Homo Sovieticus just have nostalgia about 1960-70 when he/she was young so it's more like infantile nostalgia about young age that partially transforms into nostlgia about everything that is connected to it including political system. A decent quality of life even in 1960-1970 can also be put in question. I doubt you would like to have that "decent" Soviet quality of life nowadays.

                            Quality of life in USA in 60-70 was not like it's now. We must not speak about things taken from context. The level of life is just one of aspects of general picture.

                                While I agree with your point, you shouldn't call Hannity a reporter. He isn't one, he's a talking head opinion show guy. And, while unsavory and blatant misinformation, he has more leeway to do that than a reporter. Though airing all those opinion shows does reflect on their reputation. And yes they do have their fair share of sketchy reporting.. but let's at least call people what they are.
