Cyber Nations Forum Rules 07/03/2016Cyber 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.

Attention denizens of the World, On November 30th, a formal Declaration of War was declared upon the Nordreich by the Royal House of Aevrum. In the ensuing tumult of command, the leadership of the Royal House of Aevrum failed to repeal the Declaration of War, furthering its validity. In response, on December 2nd, the Nordreich formally recognized the offensive campaign launched against it. As such, conflict was openly recognized by both Alliances in a public setting. Regardless of the opinions concerning the legitimacy of the casus foederis of the conflict itself, one cannot possibly argue that the conflict was hidden in any way whatsoever from the World. In fact, for one reason or another; it has been at the forefront of international dialogue since it came to be. Which sets up the casus belli for this particular Nordlandic Announcement. So that there may be no confusion for anyone involved; as much detail as possible shall be henceforth, within this document, be declared. It is a widely agreed upon notion that aiding a nation or Alliance that is at war with another nation or Alliance may be justifiably considered an act of war against the latter party. We within the Nordreich concur with this notion, and seek to peacefully subdue logistics operations that aid our enemies. We do this as diplomatically as possible, and never use offensive military operations as a primary means of suppression. However, if all diplomatic attempts are ignored, we will not shy away from utilizing the Nordreich's Wehrmacht to eradicate such logistics operations. This is a proper tenant of warfare, and is done so justifiably under the rationale that those allowing our enemies to stay in the fight are enemies themselves. On December 3rd, at 9:15:49 AM, Kapsyl I of Kapsylonia, a member of AGW Overlords, sent an Aid Package consisting of $9,000,000 and 4,000 soldiers to Steven Simpson of Grammaton; the latter being a member of the Royal House of Aevrum. This was spotted by both the Reich itself, as well as its Allies. The KronPrinz of the Reich, Latexi, promptly sent a message to the leader of AGW Overlords that stated: A message was sent to Kapsyl I himself, as well. Neither individual replied, though the Aid Shipment in question was Cancelled shortly thereafter. However, almost immediately after the Aid Shipment was cancelled, a Secret Aid Shipment appeared on both AGW Overlords' and the Royal House of Aevrum's Aid Screens. The timing of this was simply impossible to ignore, so further research was done. According to this, the nation of Kapsylonia had a sustained military consisting of 30,514 soldiers at the beginning of the day. However, upon inspection of Kapsylonia's military after the Secret Aid was sent, the number of soldiers had declined precisely 4,000 soldiers; down to 26,514. The absolute only two causes for this are either: Kapsyl I decommissioned 4,000 soldiers out of his ranks. He sent a Foreign Aid Package with 4,000 soldiers in it to someone else. The odds of the first option are impossibly low, leaving the second option to be considered fact. No other Foreign Aid Packages were sent by the nation of Kapsylonia, confirming to the Nordreich that Kapsyl I sent aid in secret to the nation of Grammaton immediately after being informed of the latter's involvement in a war against the Reich. As he was informed of the situation, and chose to ignore our diplomatic bulletin, this makes him complicit in funding an enemy of the Reich and its Allies. This constitutes an Act of War against the Nordreich. As such, the Nordreich formally declares war upon AGW Overlords for their complicit funding of an enemy of the Reich and its Allies. If this incident was merely the unsanctioned act of one individual in particular, then the leadership of AGW should have formally done something to rectify the situation. Allowing this to continue is inaction, and inaction is either complicity or ineptness. Either way, it cannot be tolerated or else it will grow into a larger issue. Failure to properly respond to our diplomacy is what led to this. We are still open to talks with AGW, but the Nordreich will never delay action due to the inaction of others.

aNiMaLz hereby declares war on Royal House of Aevrum in defense of our ally Nordreich. Certain members of Aevrum instigated a war with us, like they used to instigate wars as us. We've decided It's better for everyone this way. Signed the true aNiMaLz
Let it be stated by I representitive of the Royal House of Aevrum that The Royal House of Aevrum declares war on Nordreich.

A day late and a deutschmark short from Operation Dank & Birthday Cake. What a shame, so instead I will share with you a story. A group of Nordlanders walk into a bar… (aye, start of a bad joke indeed) A group of Nordlanders show up to Beerfest. WHAT IS ZEE PASSWORD!?? Apparently it is not leather donkey or anything to do with redneck troll. They missed last call so they get drunk all night and pass out in an alley. In the morning a messenger bird wakes them, appearing in the form of a parrot of all creatures. “PEPPER YOUR ANGUS” is all the note said, so they sent an eagle in return, "WHERE THE BOOTY?" They refill their drinking horns and bier steins, making their way to the coast. In the distance they see a tattered ship with a skull and crossbones flag sporting many sea-faring fellow using monoculars. These were not bearded cyclops but pirates who had been observing these heathens for days. So the Northmen boarded their longboat, preparing to discuss the superiority of their ship making, weaponry, beards and alcohol; providing a bounty of mead, beer and women, because you can’t have a party on rum alone. However, these pirates were not too keen on the party favors (questions still abound regarding this). Having seen through the offering, they treated the Nordlanders as persona non grata, so defense became a necessity and a fight broke out. To this day, no one knows if they are still warring or partying, but no one can deny their similarities. Having seen this coming, we left the “blitz” out of “blitzkrieg” but at least we got it half right. Nordreich declares war on Pirates of the Parrot Order.

Nordland. A compelling and complex history yet moreover a community which, despite many triumphs and downfalls, has remained strong, ever-vigilant and survived through Hell and high water. Eight years ago on this day, the Prussian Federation and Volksleitung coalesced to create what we have carried forward to this day. For eight years, we have joined together as one unified force, unrivaled in its dedication to our heritage, values and military prowess. Over the past eight years, Nordland has progressed from a small group of nations into a global community which has proven unbreakable in spirit and in mind. It is on this day that we reflect upon our history and remember those who, across the years, have joined us. Each and every Nordlander has had an impact on the group that persists today; each and every Nordlander shall be remembered, for better or worse as a fundamental part of our existence. We, the collective peoples of the second Nordreich, salute all who fought tooth and nail through the many trials and conquests forged over our mighty empire. Though they may not all be here today, Old Blood remains the most respected label of our community, and their guidance and fervor are what keep us fighting onward. Many hails and respect to all of our allies past and present, and to all the mergers which have come to know this as their home. We are proud to announce the return of our beloved Thor on this great day. He has been welcomed back as a brother and a soldier. We are honored to have him back by our sides as an invaluable asset to the Reich. o/ The Prussian Federation o/ Volksleitung o/ Norden Verein o/ Sons of Muspel o/ The League of the Right o/ Lone Star Republic o/ Nordreich BLOOD IS ETERNAL In remembrance of our brother, Thor von Mayhem. We will take our place by your side in the halls of Valhalla when our time has come.
In the beginning, there was a simple idea... to take the best ideas of everything we had learned, both the good and the mistakes, from every alliance we had been in and every alliance we learned about... to take that information and use it to create the best alliance that we could. And to make that alliance flexible enough to adapt to changes, both internal and external... and most importantly, to create a home. We didn't just want to make an alliance for only protection, or trading, but also an atmosphere where everyone was valued, and everyone was important. Not equal, but important and valued. We accepted nearly everyone, and we did everything we could to properly educate and assist everyone who joined. As we grew, we expanded our efforts to make the world better. We created Arizona. Not to extend our influence, but to be better able to help those that needed help, and to counter the things that made the world less enjoyable. Sadly, Arizona did not achieve the potential it should have. People had a hard time understanding its intent... still, I was proud to see what it did accomplish. But to all things, there inevitably comes an end. For months now, Arizona has served as nothing more than a footnote manned only by Terran Empire and GPF, and providing protection to NEAT and our protectorates. We held it in place with the hope that once things got better in other areas that we could once again correct Arizona and get it up and running again. That day will never come. With the understanding from GPF, I hereby formally announce the immediate dissolution of the Arizona Treaty Bloc. I would like to thank all of the alliances that participated in any stage of its development, those that served as members, those that considered membership, and those that cooperated with Arizona. Arizona had a run that lasted longer than expected, and in its time did make a difference in our corner of the world. Terran Empire was intended as our final alliance when we created it. Over time, Terran Empire became more than just a retirement home for its founders. But as it grew, so did the expectations and obligations. In our efforts to help as many people as possible, we took on more and more responsibility. There are many who never understood who we were, and what we were about. We never sought power or influence as goals, but as tools to better assist those in need. We did make some mistakes along the way, but over all, we stood by our beliefs regardless of the potential consequences. We stood up to defend TDO in their hour of need, and while the months of war this placed on us did give us the boost in reputation we needed to make the big political moves that would push us to the next stage in developing our alliance... the damages were significant. Pixels can be replaced, but burnout is much harder to repair, especially when compounded by global mass inactivity. Still, this was not what brought us to this day. Terran Empire had grown too dependent on its leadership, and that, which in many ways served as a source of strength, was the weakness that we were unable to overcome. Truth is that situations from beyond this world from many of our gov members, set the stage, and when I personally had significant issues from beyond this world of my own, the vacuum at the top was more than we could overcome. When it became clear that these outer issues would not be soon overcome, and that I would no longer be able to run the alliance to the level that I feel is necessary to serve my members and allies, I made the hard decision to do what we always felt we would never do. I chose to close the doors of Terran Empire. In efforts to take care of as many of our obligations as possible, I have negotiated the merger of Terran Empire into Nordreich. Our protection of ROMA and SCAR will also be transferred to Nordreich, and the Terran Empire AA will be protected by Nordreich for as long as people remain on it. There are a lot of people I would personally like to thank for their contributions to Terran Empire. I owe a lot to some of those that are gone from this world like New Reverie, Van Hoo III, and Bad Omen, for influencing me greatly in how to properly run an alliance and treat those who recognise you as their leader. Without them, I would not have been able to create an alliance, or rule it effectively. And a footnote thank you to those who showed me how to ruin an alliance and prove to me that I could do better. Next, I would like to thank Londo and jgoods and the rest of Athens, without whom, Terran Empire would have never gotten off the ground. I owe an immense amount of gratitude to Sarmatian and all of Legacy for saving us from the premature abyss we were facing and launching our extremely successful second age. I have never understood the rift that grew between us, but I have always been grateful for what was done for us. I'd like to thank Grey Council, the Rosular Kingdom, TDO, and Cult of Justitia for the relationships we developed years ago. Thank you to NEAT, ROMA, and Sandwich Confederacy for everything we did for each other. A huge thank you to everyone at CCC. You spent so much time as a part of our lives and our development. LPS, Sherg, Wes, Llanowar... really, just a big thank you to everyone at CCC. I'd like to thank UCR, Invicta, NPO, and Legion. Things were a rollercoaster ride at times, but there were some noteworthy positives. I'd like to thank Sparta and Fark, for doing what you could for us when we needed it most. Thanks to TIO, NATO, LoSS, and SUN. You have each been good friends. Thank you to Randalla and Apparatus, and Cerridwyn. You have been good friends. Thanks to each of our many protectorates who put their faith in us: FTC, FCC, BWB, UA, ICON, ROMA, and SCAR. Thank you to GOONS...you know what for. And a very big thank you to our very good friends at GPF, KoRT, Nordreich, GATO, and NG. So many individuals to thank that I will not attempt to do so... but a thank you to Rampage3, Devo, Sojourner, Tidybowl, Scorponok, Stagger Lee, Dre4m, Rogal Dorn, Omni, Roq, Wally, Walsh, Brucemna, ConRed, White Chocolate, Schatt, MIKE 1587, Franz, Berbers, Mogar, Nascar, KCahill, Fen, Cheezy, Kurd, Samwise, ...and so many, many others... And more than anyone, all of Terran Empire owes a huge thank you to our former Chancellor of Defense, CheezDood. You were the best gov member we ever had, and we could not have made it through our wars without you. Finally, I'd like to thank everyone who was ever a member of Terran Empire. Without you, nothing would have been possible. It was each of you who made this a home, and made everything we did worthwhile. It was said in our first year that we would never amount to anything, but we did so much more than anyone thought possible in the current age. Without ever having a merger, we reached a peak of 132 members, a ranking as high as #26, over 3 million NS, a Senate seat we held for years, a bloc, success in wars, and many good friends and allies. This far exceeded our own expectations and made us proud of our accomplishments. On behalf of the remaining founders of Terran Empire, and everyone in our gov, we thank all of Planet Bob for our time in it... and we close this door, not overwhelmed with sadness, but with countless memories and pride for everything that we achieved. It was an honor to lead Terran Empire, and now I turn the page to add our assets to Nordreich.
