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.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know. Please only send real issues not things like I hate the colors of the site or the site looks cheap now. I am trying to get as many issues fixed for you as i can and If i have to read through stuff like that it's going to take me longer to get stuff fixed.

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 .

    That's a very interesting idea. Maybe we should encourage the Chechens to claim independence from Russia.

      Would it accept the secession of north ossetia?Will it recognize Kosovo?
      Both questions were already asked in this thread. (is it a stereotype or result of mass media propaganda?) I don't see how is it relevant. If it will recognize kosovo, does it mean that everyone who recognized kosovo have to recgnize SO and Abkhazia?
      secession of north ossetia? why not chechnya? or tatarstan? or california? return of Alaska to Russia? secession of California? or south vs north? - they all make pretty much same sense.

        No they don't, not in any sense of the definition. Why would we return Alaska to Russia? It was bought and paid for. It has no bearing on the situations in SO and Kosovo, and is nothing like those. Secession of California? Where did that come from?

          What I am saying, there is great forum for such wonderful "what if" questions, called "Alternate Timelines" right here on armchairgeneral.

          to me more important the fact that this step can not be reversed, and this is different from everything else that was going on in this conflict.

              As for "what if" question - will SO ask now to be included into Russia? Abkhazia most likely not. Abkhazia probably will request military assistence.
              will Georgia break diplomatic relations with Russia? 4-7 precent of Georgian GDP comes from Georgian citizens working in Russia. Number of Gergian living currently in Russia is huge. (it is more than 10 percent of Georgian population)

                The issue is that russia has always had an aversion against secession movements.It has a lot to lose from that.
                It recognizes South ossetia and abchazia solely to annoy Georgia.
                It did not want to recognize Kosovo.

                  OH, there are quite a few nations within Russia interested in exploring independence - especially if they get to do a little ethnic cleansing prior. How about Mari El Republic, Tatarstan, Mordovia?

                    The west should certainly encourage them to weaken russia.

                      yes we should - it is perfectly normal for other countries to support another country rebels, especially if it is not that friendly country.
                      Just don't behave like it is ok for some countries but not the others.

                        I don't agree we should encourage them, because Russia will not apply the same standard to them as it did in SO and Abkhazia and at worst it will lead to a bloodbath similar to what happened in Chechnya. I don't see anybody in the west willing to intervene in such a situation.

                          I have to admit that I am surprised by Russia's latest move. Its as though they are seeking further confrontation. So how long until Russia annexes SO and Abkhazia? A day? A week?

                                Reaction as Russia backs rebels

                                What is interesting about this is that Russia has succeeded in alienating some countries that will routinely support her.

                                JAAP DE HOOP SCHEFFER, NATO SECRETARY GENERAL
                                This is in direct violation of numerous UN Security Council resolutions regarding Georgia's territorial integrity, resolutions that Russia itself has endorsed. Russia's actions in recent weeks call into question Russia's commitment to peace and security in the Caucasus. Nato firmly supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia and calls on Russia to respect these principles.


                                CARL BILDT, SWEDISH FOREIGN MINISTER
                                That the Russian government leadership now has chosen this route means they have chosen a policy of confrontation, not only with the rest of Europe, but also with the international community in general.


                                GERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL
                                This contradicts the principle of territorial integrity, a principle based on the international law of nations and for this reason it is unacceptable.


                                FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTRY SPOKESMAN
                                We consider this is a regrettable decision and I recall our attachment to the territorial integrity of Georgia.
