10 years of “Military Review”: how we traveled along this path together


Dear and esteemed our readers! Military Review is sharing with you news of its anniversary date. Today, our information and analytical portal is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Of course, this is not the age that can be compared with the age of the "bison" of domestic journalism, the media. But if we talk about considering the period of the new Russia, then we think that we can afford to call it an anniversary. In the context of the current speed of development of events in the country and the world, 10 years for the Internet portal is a noticeable period.

And indeed, whatever events we have experienced during this time, dear readers. Born during the period of stabilization after the economic crisis of 2008–2009, Military Review was growing into an audience for which the country's very fate was and remains by no means an empty phrase.

The military theme of our resource was decisive. However, the well-known thesis that the people and the army are united, in the end showed the following: it is impossible, and it’s wrong to talk about the army and navywithout affecting those inextricably linked with the defense and security of our country. And this is the social security of servicemen and members of their families, these are the ups and downs in the economy that are literally affecting each of us, these are geopolitical processes that build their “landscapes”, which by definition cannot be ignored.

Over the years, topwar.ru has gathered a group of regular readers. These people are with us, and we, together with these people, as they say, in grief and in joy.

We discussed military-technical issues together, breaking spears over how to change tracked tracks on tanks and infantry fighting vehicles more efficiently and quickly in the field. We argued and continue to argue about whether the Russian Navy needs aircraft carriers and helicopter carriers. We tried to decide what caliber tank the T-14 Armata guns may be suitable for modern combat, while being in the mode of setting the RF Armed Forces themselves on the T-14 tank. Together with you, we saw from the side and experienced the difficult process of reforming the army and navy. We experienced positive emotions from the achievements of domestic engineers, designers, gunsmiths who created the latest types of weapons, including military laser and hypersonic. We empathized with the relatives of the victims of terrorist acts. We watched the Russian Air Forces inflicting crushing defeats on the militant militant groups in Syria. Together we experienced a sense of grief from losses: Oleg Peshkov, Sasha Prokhorenko, Magomed Nurbagandov, Ryafagat Khabibullin, Roman Filipov, and our other heroic guys.

Together we discuss criticism, which is sometimes directed at us. The quintessence of such criticism is “VO” is not that ... ”And“ Military Review ”agrees with this. Yes, “VO” is not that ... like “not that” for ten years and each of us. Just as nothing can remain at one point in this mortal world, as they say, so our portal cannot be bronzed and unchanged. “VO” follows the path of life, making mistakes somewhere, stumbling somewhere, and making progress somewhere. Just because we consider our magazine alive, and therefore changing, like all living things. Only those who perceive themselves to be perfect do not change. “VO” never perceived itself as ideal, and is not going to perceive it. This is our simple credo: to change without changing the principles of life. It is simply a credo that we never depended on any parties, political and business projects, never “sang along” with the oligarchs, but conducted our information policy. And the purpose of this information policy was one thing - to tell the truth about what is happening in the country and the world, to raise the themes of patriotism, and not in that superseded version, when they try to consider patriotism not love for the Motherland, but anything that is presented as a feeling, but that which is the desire to see your country in prosperity, security, justice, love. Military Review knows what real patriotism is and firmly stands in its position.

We thank again and again our readers who remain with us, who have responded to our call to support VO in the context of the pandemic crisis. Recall that the main income of Military Review is advertising placed on the site. With a decrease in economic activity in the country and the world, against the backdrop of well-known problems, the advertising placement activity and its profitability have also fallen. That is why we turned to you, our readers, with a call for material support. Many of you have already responded, for which - many thanks. This mite on our part will not remain forgotten.

"Military Review" together with the whole country will overcome the problems. Such is life - there are problems for that, so that they can be overcome by their joint efforts.

Our regular readers will remember about those projects, innovations and changes that “VO” introduced, including as experiments. This is a reflection of ratings with ranks on shoulder straps, these are the so-called "year old"Showing how long the user on our site is among the registered.

We, having implemented the function minuses for copyright articles, we decided at one time to get away from this. The departure was due to the fact that a faceless minus to the material would not allow the reader to know the opinion of why he did not like the article. To express their emotions, not going beyond the bounds of decency and law, the comment mode was and remains open on the site. By the way, not all modern information resources retain this function, because only its support requires a team of moderators who have to work with thousands of comments per day (at the moment you have written more 10 million comments) This is a huge amount of work, which in itself is often criticized by commenters, but without which the comments themselves would long ago become a platform not for discussing the topic, but for clarifying the relationship. Readers know that this kind of contention and disrespect for the interlocutor must be suppressed by deleting comments and “yellow” (and sometimes “red”) “cards” for commentators. Without moderating comments, the site would become an expanse for bots and trolls, which, admittedly, are enough now, but which are still systematically detected and displayed first in clean water, and then “behind the ear” - and from the site.

We introduced a "nomination" for title of best commentator according to the results of a certain period of time. Some time ago, we decided to abandon the demonstration of the flags of the countries from which they write comments. The reason is that sometimes the flag of a foreign country itself sometimes provokes some readers to want to create a scandal in the comments that cannot be attributed to the topic under discussion, or because many people come from the so-called anonymizers that “stick” virtually any flag and in any case not giving any "geographical" information.

We have repeatedly introduced design updatecreating night theme, change of wallpaper, general design. We ran an option subscriptions on VO, providing subscribers with analytics and a number of other materials in an exclusive version. At one time, this version of popularity did not gain, but our team is working on its new edition, which, we hope, will appeal to many readers.

How the design of Military Review has changed since 2010:


2010g.



We opened new projects that live and develop in parallel with VO. In 2011, we launched the first military-themed aggregator “Military materials", in 2013 "Political review". Next 2015, the launch of the aggregator for economics and finance "Economic Review". Two years ago, in 2018, we launched a new project - “Reporter". Many of our readers are active users of these information resources.

In 2019, authoritative British-Israeli project SimilarWeb, Military Review was recognized the most visited Internet resource in the world among military-related websites. We managed to bypass this indicator by large resources from a number of countries, including the USA, China, Vietnam, Brazil and others.

10 years of “Military Review”: how we traveled along this path together

This, frankly, came as a surprise to our team. We will make efforts to adhere to this high bar.

Dear and esteemed our readers! We hope that our work, our joint discussion of the country's life, current events in the world, leave a response in your soul. On the day of the 10th anniversary, we thank you again and again for your active life position, for the constructive criticism that you sometimes express in our address, for your support, for your lively and emotional reaction. Thanks friends!

The 10th anniversary of “VO” is our common holiday with you!

              If VO was not there, then it would have to be created.

                VO is a unique site. Not only with their materials, but also with their audience.
                There are a lot of us and we are all different. By age, by education, by education, by belief and life experience. And very often there are disputes on the verge. But here is what is valuable - people generally do not cross this line. The site has respect for each other. And respect for the authors of the site.
                Happy anniversary, IN!

    Congratulations on the holiday to everyone who knows about the "Military Review" firsthand.
    10 years is already a significant anniversary!
    Used site materials since 2011. But the first time became a user in 2014. Prior to that, I spent time on “X.Torrents.org”, where I honed the user's skills. I don’t know if I have the right to offer, but I can make my own judgments about increasing popularity.
    The site had a wonderful feature when the "nickname" was decorated with the flag of the user's country. And the openness of the names of (at least) “minusculers” would help moderators (and users) cool the ardor of “warlike nationalists” who rush at the interlocutor only on the basis of the existence of a particular citizenship.
    Unfortunately, the FORUM was closed, where it was possible to make suggestions on the site.
    The site administration practically does not use its own right to “Pardon”, and the death penalty - “life removal from the site” is a very unpleasant thing, even if the user is corrected (By the way, there is no death penalty in the Russian Federation) ...
    Why clog up the topic with the saying of people who have for a long time (for example 3 months) a negative rating?
    I propose more often to conduct surveys on relevant topics. This will let you know the mood of users.
    The “VIDEO” section can be diversified by the “Military Acceptance” sections, etc. Visitors can find topics of interest here, rather than scouring the YuoTube.
    I can’t understand the difficulties in the possibility of correcting comments (spelling and stylistic errors), at least during the first day, or several hours.
    In a word, go for it and baptize. Health, good mood and civil courage!

    The collective of VO and all involved, with the anniversary!
    The fact that the flags were removed is correct. Firstly, there are many sensible people in openly unfriendly countries that were simply minuscated by origin. Secondly, the flag did not always correctly reflect the actual location of the participant. For example, I most often go from the Opera and the flag did not display me, but the location of the Opera’s main server at a given time. If you believe the flags, I was a great traveler.
    Regarding the cons. I believe that the site administration made a mistake when it went about asking and returned the minuses. Just comparing different periods, I can absolutely say that without cons it was calmer and less dirt. Nobody avenged anyone, did not attack the crowd. You can always express your attitude to the comment with another comment, plus or simply ignoring. Cons are not needed.
    It is necessary to somehow limit the duration of the warnings. At least a year. Sometimes they hang almost forever.
    It would be useful to realize on the main page the ability to view all materials in a row without dividing them into sections. Like in the RSS feed.
    Yours faithfully,
    Rudolff!

      Rudolph hi Unfortunately, you are a disappearing type of commentator on this site. I mean the professionals who served the country, have a certain life experience and a broad outlook, who are interesting to read. I’ll tell you more, judging by the comments, now on the website it’s a trend to shit “thieves’s regime” and a lot of extremely malicious comments by amateurs. Everyone who is trying to enter into a discussion with them is scooping up the downsides. I personally do not care about ratings, minuses. I usually leaf through publications on the site over the past years. But if you compare the comments 7 years ago with the current ones, you can see a process similar to cirrhosis of the liver when an irreversible change in the audience of the site occurs. And this process was started by canceling the minuses, when delusional comments received only pluses. And when the cons were returned, it was too late. The audience has changed, many have left. This is all stated, personally my opinion.

        It seems to me that this problem is of a slightly different level and is not related to minuses. It is connected with the content of the site, with content. Here the dilemma, in fact, was simple. Either the content is more professional and the site has a smaller audience, or the content is less serious, poppy and then the audience of the site is much wider. Unfortunately, the site administration is more prone to the second option. Many politicized articles, sometimes with a yellow tinge. Sometimes on the verge of a foul. Purely provocative often come across. Or dummy articles. Well, the audience is going to the corresponding. Professionalism has fallen, but the site has really become popular. I used to joke that it’s possible to make a full crew of any nuclear submarine from the visitors of the site, from a bilge sailor to a senior sailor and commander. There were all warheads. Now there are only a few of them. Who left, who left. If, for example, I voiced some fact that took place in reality, but whose idea is unpopular, they simply put me on the local wall for execution. And to prove something is useless. Not all of them stand it. I myself sometimes abandoned the site for six months or more. But I must note, if only it does not seem to me, a bias towards more professionalism has recently appeared. Hope this is the trend. But the cons, I think, are not needed. They only add nervousness.

          Sorry to get into a conversation, but hooked. Ten years. Perhaps this is still a lot. Nine years ago (I registered at VO in 2011), the sky was bluer, the grass was greener, and I sat for VO 3-4 hours a day, sometimes even to the detriment of meeting friends and beer. I read absolutely all the articles and all the comments, it was really interesting, sometimes I put my crooked three kopecks into a common piggy bank. Now I’m running through the headlines, I’m reading some articles, I don’t read the comments from the word “completely”. Probably aged, or maybe tired of .... Some authors can already be recognized by the title. VO used to be a like-minded website, in the best sense of the word. Now it’s the media, just the media (how proud we were with the editors when VO received this title).

            Valery hi In those years, the publications were interesting, and the comments were strictly on the case. Often there were valuable comments, not inferior in quality to a small but full-fledged publication (and now it is, but very rarely). Now I go to the site and after reading the headline I don’t even want to open any publication, because this is a simple copy-paste of news and slag information. Therefore, I often read old publications, especially in the history section there is nothing to change. Writing comments is also not particularly attractive, and it makes no sense - they can blame not for the comment, but for the views. Read also does not pull, in the news section in general in the comments trash and fumes. Of course I understand that VO is primarily a commercial project. Leadership diversifies the audience, increases coverage. Those who really do not like something just leave, the most nervous of them slam the door. The rest just do not care about the quality of the content. I completely agree with your comment.

            Good evening! I’ve also been on the site since I was 11 years old, I didn’t write for the first year, but I read articles and comments, they were very interesting to me, of course there were different opinions, but these were in almost all cases the opinions of professionals, now yes, they just cry like this is bad and how under Stalin it was good.

    Website - find money and save your soul!
    In the segment of patriotic and educated people, VO is much more effective than VTsIOM.
    As an educational resource, it is better than almost all budget projects: illustrations, fact-checking, interesting details. The bookmark archive really works at school.
    The level of political analysis is high. Most of the Western and domestic projects - loud lightweight "irregular cavalry." Whether it’s the case - the well-known "samurai" from the "history" section. Or "general staffists" from the "opinion".

    ps More terrible than a ban is a label for the "victim of the exam." (smiley with a smile).

    ... to anchor, to stand in places.
    On "IN", on rumba, rumba, keep it up!
    Devil Golden, to rob his own horns,
    He can not resist! ...

    Hey, “VO”, you started to see it abruptly.
    We managed to love you.
    As a resource, you loomed brightly.
    Together we all be!

    The military theme of our resource was decisive. However, the well-known thesis that the people and the army are united, as a result, showed the following: it is impossible, and it is wrong to talk about the army and navy without affecting those inextricably linked with the defense and security of our country

    Life is changing. Not only tanks and planes, but also the economy and the media are also weapons.

    they never “sang along” with the oligarchs, but conducted their information policy.

    Site, of course, with an anniversary. But occasionally there are custom articles. I will not spoil the holiday, call the authors. Good thing only occasionally. Once again, happy anniversary drinks !

    Well, for the first 10 years they have successfully grown, already in their teens.
    I wish the next 10 years to expand the horizons of the participants and their number even more shockingly, develop positions, hope and influence the adoption of the right decisions, since you and I have already gone far beyond the borders of military issues, military-scientific, military-political and military-economic .. .
    We are already feeling for something in more fundamental things: historical and worldviews.
    We are pleased with the growing number of foreign audience of the site, although I do not always agree with them, but their opinion is always interesting and important for all of us.
    We won’t give up the first place!
    Congratulations to all administrators and the editorial board of the site, authors and commentators, all health!

      If you have to remember Mikhan so long ago. Mythic personality! The mere definition for Jane Psaki “I would blow” is worthy the title of a national hero ... Yes there were people ....))))) The era .... How many people escaped to read his nonsense, but to neighing from the heart.

        tracer. Mikhan it was something. Petrosyan and Zadornov were somewhat similar from him)) I also congratulate myself and VO on the tenth anniversary)) Ten years is quite a considerable, already respectable anniversary. Let your rating grow, and popularity among people !! I go on a business trip to a South Slavonic education a lot. Whenever possible, I advertise VO.

    Some time ago, we decided to abandon the demonstration of the flags of the countries from which comments are written. The reason is that sometimes the flag of a foreign state itself sometimes provokes some readers to want to create a scandal in the comments,

    There were no less scandals, the matter was in people, and not in the place of residence. The opinion of a person directly from the country where the events were taking place was not recognized, the commentators' flags were canceled.

    every anniversary congratulations.
    But I can’t be without criticism. The level since 2010 has fallen for the sake of mass
    The level of discussion that VO has been awarded for is now an unattainable bar!
    But there were comments, better articles!

    10 years is a deadline. Congratulations! drinks In general, the site has a lot of interesting articles on military and historical subjects and of quite decent quality. Most of the news on this topic that appear on the network also appear here, which is convenient. There are many articles on the "bet" where you can break the spears. Mostly annoying only articles on economic topics - often corny weak and provocative. That I would have removed them from the "military review". At the same time, I would only welcome deep articles on the military economy. But they appear extremely rarely, and slogan articles not related to military affairs are too often. My IMHO - I do not impose. request
    By the way, I liked the previous look of the site more. But I'm used to it, though not right away.
    In general, success and I wish you more in-depth and interesting articles! hi
