Guys, I don't think that we should link to a commercial site for a book, right?
Some Armenian made stubs of all the marzer, putting them at the name without "marz" (e.g. Lori Marz is at Lori). Should they be moved? Do we need marz articles, or should we have larger regions? -phma 10:18, 21 Jul 2004 (EDT)
Here's my idea for a Regions Hierarchy for Armenia:
I think we should change the Marz articles into redirects to the new traveler-oriented regions. The one thing I feel less confident about is where to put the Aragatsotn content. It could fit as easily into Northern Armenia as Central Armenia. Or it could have some claim to be its own region I suppose. I will upload a regions map shortly to illustrate, and I'll wait a bit to see if other editors have input. --Peterfitzgerald Talk 22:02, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
This section currently seems to assume that the reader is an "ordinary American", this should probably be changed.
Stay Safe Section
There seems to be a strong desire to portray Armenia as a very safe country and the US Embassy is part of this. In reality its nothing like as safe as people might like to think or hope. both the EU office and the Embassy warn of the dangers from muggings and also scams involving ATM machines where you enter your PIN etc but the money does not appear.
I am interested in assisting in creating a 12-15 day trans-Caucasus itinerary with Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia. Would anyone be interested in assisting me with this? Cupcakecommander 02:47, 31 July 2007 (EDT)
"The Well Known ATM Scams" ?
Can those who state that there are "well known ATM scams" provide some prooflinks of this "well known" facts? I've graduated University with degree in ICT in Banks and Finances, with many of my classmates working in Banks, and especialy in ArCa (Armenian Card) system which is used by local banks for providing Visa, MasterCard services and I've never heard of issues. Google also brings only Wikitravel when you search for "Yerevan ATM scam". If such problem would exist, it would also affect MasterCards. And as that sentences concetrate on "Visa cards" I suppose, it was someone's bad experience, which he thinks or tries to present is a general issue. All ATM's in Armenia are equiped with cameras, which should fix at least 3 moments, when you come close to ATM, when you put in your card, and when you take out the money. So it's also easy to check if there was a problem. --Xelgen 10:50, 17 June 2009 (EDT)
How do you all feel about the mention of specific hotels at the national level? I generally delete all such listings. The only reason I'm reluctant to summarily delete them all in this case is that considerable effort has gone into a coherent and informative overview. However, I think it's a slippery slope, and that no specific names of sleeping accommodations should be mentioned at this level. What do you all think? Ikan Kekek 06:23, 28 October 2011 (EDT)
Governmental system of Armenia
Is a country with contested elections indeed accurately described as a "Dictatorship"? I believe we have some polemical or perhaps nationalistically biased editing here. It seems much more accurate to describe Armenia as a troubled democracy than an actual dictatorship, and "Republic" is a reasonable short-hand, given that a long explanation of recent history is beyond the scope of an information box. Explain your edits, please, or give up. Also, if you think it's important to add some recent history of political conflict within Armenia, go ahead and insert it in the "Understand" section. Thanks.
