      Cyber Nations Forum Rules   07/03/2016

      Cyber Nations Forum Rules  
      In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
      The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc.   Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator.   A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules.   1.) First Warning
      2.) Second Warning
      3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
      4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
      5.) Permanent Ban   Game Bans and Forum Bans
      If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion.   If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums.   Process of Appeals
      Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game.   Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum.   Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation.   The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise.   Posting
      All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however.   Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have...   A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
      Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
      Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area.   Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
      Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning.   Topic Hijacking
      Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning.   Repeat Topics
      One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise.   Joke Topics
      Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic.   Spam
      Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags.   Posting in All Caps
      Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key.   No Discussion Forums
      There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense.   Moderation Forums
      All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine.   Namecalling
      Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums.   Filtered Words
      Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word.   If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene.   Harassment
      Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning.   Gravedigging
      Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this.   The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread.   Signatures
      Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning.   You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line.   Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
      Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright.   Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted.   Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited.   Drug References
      Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof.   Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
      Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities.   OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
      An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense.   Death Threats / Death Wishes
      A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff.   Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
      Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited.   Forum Names
      With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive.   Multiple Forum Accounts
      With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis.   Posting For Other Players
      Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf.   Imitation &. Impersonation
      Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts.   A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice.   Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions.   Avatars
      Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission.   Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
      The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums.   Moderation Staff
      The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban.   Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning.   Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah.   Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited.   Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked.   Aiding Rule Violators
      Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted.   Aiding Banned Players
      Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff.   Questionable Actions and Content
      The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time.   Private Transactions
      Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game.   Advertising
      Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so.   Extorting Donations
      Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned.   Third Party Software
      Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased.   Other Forum Terms & Rules   Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

  1. Congrats on being more active than most of the game and allowing micros to provide more intrigue then any sanctioned alliance has over the past several years. Boring as $%&@ indeed.
  2. nah i'll keep my supernuke battlecruiser for when I get even more bored thanks. Unless you want to be the recipients of said nukes? Nevermind too bored to login
  3. The first time you guys have actually done anything in a while.
  4. This entire conflict is garbage. The participants should've steeped some tea and gotten it over with. I can see now that nothing has changed. Never change planet bob. Black Tea Matters
  5. I'm glad you support the black tea matters movement. It's about time someone takes a stand for all of the black tea out there that is routinely discriminated against.
  6. I do not approve of this treaty. It is garbage. Written on tea leaves.
  7. Come, let you feel the bags of black tea on your face. It will sooth you.
  8. Black Tea Matters Movement can't help but feel that the rights to employ tea bagging on both sides is restricted by warfare. Let there be peace. I will personally rub a hot black tea bag all over the first person's face who works for peace.
  9. Once upon a time there was a tea prophet who led his people to greatness. Sipping from his cup he was able to divulge the secrets of life through the Book of Earl Gray, and pensive missives such as "Chamomile, spice or made up word?" His people flourished. Without doubt of his prowess, those that went before him were to be boiled so that they might never be steamed. But they were misled. The people sipped his tantalizing oolong tea, not worrying what discriminating against the black tea would do. They thought themselves better, even though some of the green tea was indeed black as the blackest of the black tea -- they continued to steep carelessly of the poverty levied on the black tea. Subjected to section 800 housing, where 800 black tea bags were thrown in the same packaging -- the oolong tea continued to be otherwise loose and free or shinily packaged individually. But this was only the beginning of the first deceptions of the tea prophet. He had already conquered the world, but it wasn't enough. He wanted more. So began the systematic disenfranchisement of an entire sect of tea. "They're lazy," he said. "I think they should just get a mug like the rest of us. "I only see black on black tea bagging in my neighborhood." were their replies to cries for help by their black brothers. Through centuries of forced labor at behest of the oolong caleafate, the black tea had long been segregated and systemically weakened by the others. Even the flaming habanero/trans herbal spice tea were more a protected class than the black tea. But why is this? All tea once originated from black tea. Why do we pretend our ancestors of yesterday are not worthy of being on an equal footing with the rest of the world? Why do we systematically under-fund black tea events? Why is it that when black tea comes across your table you hide your mug? We need to answer to this teacism. We need to recognize that Black Tea Matters. Why is it we shun black tea to our children and claim that green tea is healthier when there is no such evidence to support it? Henceforth, Black Tea Matters Movement will offer commentary on the rest of Cybernations and our hated enemies the Oolong Caleafate. We have an embassy at my inbox but are not accepting ambassadors until the oolong caleafate pays for their crimes.
  10. A better example of disloyalty would be IRON where MCRABT openly abused council authority to remove me and continued to pass failed policy to lick boots. On the bright side it led to MCRABT's eventual downfall and another nail in the coffin for actual good non OOC SKYPE jerk people to leave IRON. Apparently launching more wars in defense of IRON than nearly any other in that war matters not if you're not kissing enough ass or couldn't tolerate enough OOC harrasment from Non Grata/ horribly insufferable jokes. Then again IRON never really did give a !@#$ about their lower tier vs Polar so I guess this one's debateable as to who was disloyal to who if we're automatically assuming leadership who are politically motivated to remove you from an alliance do so is disloyalty or petty politics. You should mention MHA where I was going to win the triumvirate election and the day nominations were to go up was banned from the forum by the forum admins/executives who then we're ironically betrayed by umbrella in hilarious fashion for crimes they wanted to pin on me but just looked like garbage afterwards, despite me warning them it was coming. Never forget: Julia Rose Vicious -- worst Triumvir of ALL time. Most leadership in this game left is entirely inactive/irrelevant because more often than not they lack any leadership quality except wanting to be your OOC friend and are incapable of making decisions / being rational about / acknowledging at all any strategy. But they're nice and entirely reliant on their equally inept friends for making important decisions so what could go wrong if they're given a shot? There's maybe a number of good leaders in this game that one can count on a hand, if that. The rest are basically turd fish feeding off scraps. !@#$ half the folks people claim to exhibit good leadership are basically non sovereign submissive entities that barely exist outside of name.
  11. I got kicked out of NATO for pissing off the OOC friendship circle when I didn't roll over for one of their large nations who was incredibly dense. NATO's leadership at the time rightly viewed me as a threat to their circle jerk and a general nuisance, and having recently tied for their MoD position w/ Colossus ( anu drake broke the tie in favor of Colossus who would go on to become inactive a week later right before the UJW, and appointed a lackey thereafter) were very eager to be rid of me and cater to the extra NS. If anything NATO wasn't loyal to me, and NATO has been a shell/stagnant since that time. I think that was also 8 years ago so you're really digging deep there. What do you know of NATO? Of king tom, wolverine, pameshelu? Folks I have had contact with for far longer and far more recently than you have been spouting your nonsense who as founding members of NATO would toss it farther than your half sack of !@#$ of worth. Even lnk would chalk it up to personality/ideological conflict with folks in charge rather than disloyalty to the alliance and I routinely had it out with him over IA policy, and he's the only semi-active NATO person who would have any recollection anyway. so yeah get bent.
  12. Itt if alliance gets deliberately $%&@ed over by spineless cowards it deserved it or has a martyr complex
  13. This would normally be my cup of tea. But there is a great schism in the caleafate, one I can not allow to go leafless into the night. My tea prophet has forsaken me. I will start the movement, since you have abandoned the holy bond of TITO and have long let your principles steep into the vast depravity that now consumes you. Freedom and justice for all black tea. We will rise up until every one of my brothers and sisters accept that black tea has a place at the table. For too long we have boiled under the yoke of oppression, it is time we take back this land from the undeserving, uncaffeinated masses. Hands up, don't steep! Hands up, don't steep! Black Tea Matters.
  14. nah chim was bad at long term planning and excessively obsessed with minor powers but mi6's greater problem was that the game as a whole died five years ago there's no initiative/fight in anyone, even people who claim to control the game. If people cba to do anything meaningful to support themselves, the idea that someone would reach out to an otherwise ideal challenge to the power structure is also moot. Everyone allied each other instead and called it gg.
