      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. TDO Announcement

    You always were good with words Caz and you have done so once again. Not much I can add to the above except to say that it was a hell of a run and it has been a pleasure sharing the job of running the alliance with you these past rounds my friend. I just want all of the TDO members to know that we could not have done it without you guys and your prowess in building and fighting. Salute!!!
  2. Tag-Team DoW

    As always saying anything about stats or up and down declares does not a bit of good here and makes absolutely no difference in the outcome so lets just fight shall we? Our guys should be more than able to take on this trio and give them the battle they deserve. That being said I will also add that all TDO members have been authorized and even encouraged for the use of "dirty" spy ops against MERCS. http://tournament.cybernations.net/alliance_spies.asp?ID=11 I didn't come on here to cry about it or anything, just to state a fact. Carry on.
  3. 30 Day Round 38

    30 day round 30 mill start up cash 3 day wars Wonders every 3 days Resource change every 3 days 3 day peace period at round start.
  4. I agree with you 100% on this Nick. Scary part is for anyone on both lists when they do their build and collect cycle as that is when they are the most vulnerable to attacks. Which is well shown by your observations and numbers above.   The names could still be published but losing the dollar amounts would be a great idea.   I even usually joke while at war if someone tries the "gather intel" mission on me that they could have saved the money and have just looked at the awards page if they were curious as to my war chest.  :P
  5. And tonight, we ride to war.

    Speaking for TDO I can assure you that we will not be doing any dirty spy ops guys and girls. That is unless they are used against us first. We have never thought of the threat level op as a dirty one as its effect on collections is minimal. It is used moreso to make the others somewhat easier to get through. We will even refrain from doing any naval blockades whenever possible and judging from the size of the navies almost everyone has this should not be a problem.   I do personally want to thank you guys for not piling on the nations who had a nice back collect coming. Just one of the reasons I respect both of the alliances we are fighting.   Now lets see if we can blow up some pixels and set a new record for the GRL.     HooRah!!
  6. TDO Rides to War

    Thanks EddyH. We tried to make it as even as possible in every way. What we have over you guys in ANS should balance out in that you guys have us in every other category. Looks like just about all of us could use the xp so lets have some fun shall we?   Not sure if any of you have noticed but there are some of us that didn't even do before update GAs just so we didn't kill your back collects. Fighting a broke opponent is just no fun imo.   \o war
  7. Round 37?!

    I personally think it would be a great time to do what Kaboom mentioned in the suggestions thread and that is to not announce what the awards will be for this round. Just have them in your head what they will be admin and then let us know after the round is over who won what. Could even tell us like a week or so before the round ends what the awards will be for. Making everyone scramble to try and win them if they are even close to winning any. Good way to make people active as hell in the last week or so of the round and it will all but eliminate the "flag runners".   Good suggestion for the top award would be all rulers with "Devil" in their name. Just throwing that one out there admin. Feel free to use it.  :P
  8. I remember when I saw the above comic at the newsstand. It brought a tear to my eye then and did so again today. We just thought it better to take a round or 2 off than to have a half-assed version of the Mighty Avengers. Hope you guys understand.
  9. A Citadel Announcement

    Peace has been agreed upon and will happen at tonight's update when the first wars expire. It was a great war and kudos to my opponents as well as Citadel as a whole. Have heard a lot of great things from the guys about their opponents and most have even made some new friends. I truly wish all wars here went so smoothly. Major damage to both sides without all of the hate that has become so common to this game anymore. Not one "dirty" spy op in sight and from what I hear maybe only a couple naval blockades the entire war. I hold nothing but respect to the members of Citadel and their leadership in that regard.   Salute!!
  10. Create an EPIC round....

    I am with DT that giving away prizes for SE nations is the way to increase the player base here. The more juicier you make the winning prizes the better. Even give the winner some options so it will attract nations of all sizes. ie 5,000 tech or 2,000 infra or a Wonder that everyone will HAVE to have in SE. Throwing in bonuses at certain size stages is a great idea also. Just don't make the sizes too easy to obtain. Making it so they will have to play at least half the round to get there is a good idea imo.
  11. Avengers Announcement

    My apologies to both Howling Mad and Samwise as it seems I was in err with my above statement. I recognized the names and did not even bother to check that they were no longer War Doves since they had been for so many rounds. My mistake and my bad. Please forgive my assumption.
  12. Avengers Announcement

    We try to keep the stats as even as possible and then what happens? Couple War Doves nations decide to unbalance things a bit and I have to ask......Why? You guys just really felt it necessary to go there? I just don't get it is all.   Oh well.......carry on.
  13. The Dark Order DoW

    Well said Samwise. You are truly "wise".   But I do think you guys are forgetting something and that is the fact that the TDO nations that did buy the MP and now have nukes could have used that 10 million to be a lot bigger now and collecting way more cash. They stumped their own growth just to have those nukes just to now be asked to leave them sit rusting in their silos. That is a tough call for any alliance leader to make. Trust me as I have been there and it didn't work out well requesting such. At this point I would just hope that the TDO guys use discretion on when and who they use those nukes on.   The way I see it TDO would be having this discussion with just about any alliance they hit since they have the nuclear advantage over all. The guys leading TDO this round seem like a pretty good crew and I just can't see them nuking you guys over and over again until your round is all but over for some of you. Tbh I could see them not nuking those who simply cannot afford to be so and let it be known to them that nukes will most likely finish their round. If the nuke advantage is that much of a hurdle and will indeed all but finish either alliances round then just ask the guys at TDO for an early peace to this war and be done with it. I am all but positive that they would be agreeable to do so as none of them strike me as the "end all" type. Just my 2 cents on the matter is all.   Carry on and good luck to both sides and as a side note Cowboy and Fata1ity were both very understanding to the early end of our war with them. I hope you guys at TDO will be the same if they need to end this war with you. Kind of like the old "whats goes around, comes around" saying here for them then if it indeed does happen. Seems fitting.
  14. Really? I don't know who makes me laugh more, you or DT. We have done some of the biggest up declares in the game and yet you 2 just keep on harping about one damn war.   And you will not be alone Das as I am done with this game also my friend. Thank you for the kind words and know that it has been a pleasure fighting by your side and learning along the way.   I think Samwise said it best when she said that if a game brings more stress than fun then it is time to find a new hobby (or something along those lines).  ;) I can imagine that it is going to put a dent in admin's pocketbook when we all leave huh?
  15. I would have just sent you a pm Nick but since you are posting every message I send to you in here I figured I would cut out the middleman.   You talk about the way I reacted when your guy got caught spying one of our members less than an hour after WarHammer and I got hit with 4 of the exact same spy ops but you don't talk about how you responded to the very first spy op you guys had done to you. 7 hours after my message to you you get hit with the irs op and the first thing you do minutes later is to do the same spy op to an Avengers nation. Was an Avengers nation caught doing any dirty spy ops to any of your nations at that point?   1 spy op mission against 1 Misfits nations and you immediately do the same mission to one of our guys where as we had already had over a half dozen of our nations irs spied down to 23% when your guy was caught less than an hour after the last missions done to us and I am the one who was flying off the handle? Really? And how in the hell are we supposed to know who in your alliance is a veteran member or someone that just joined you guys 10 minutes ago? The names don't help a whole lot since you can change them at will every damn round. Whether he was a veteran member or not of course you are going to boot him from the roster after he gets caught doing one of the worst spy ops you can do to any nation in this game, only worsened by the fact that the nations he hit had not even started to build or even did a single collection yet.   And DT your theory about the missions being done to any nations that were the top nations last round or what not holds absolutely no water as I have gotten messages from every ruler who did not even join the Avengers this round and were not even close to taking any awards or flags and all of them have had their irs spied also. 2 of them even have the CIA and still they were spied multiple times until the mission was a success.   I don't have a clue as to why they spied any members of any other alliances other than the Avengers but then again I only have you saying they did to back up the fact that they were even hit. Not saying they were not hit, just saying that your word means about nothing to me after reading the pages and pages of posts of you bashing the Avengers at every fricking turn. Even when we did some of the biggest up declare wars this game has ever saw you still bashed us.   I will admit that I no longer think that Nick - Kaboom knew about all of this happening since the very beginning of the round and that is a shame as the damage done to he and I's friendship is already done and is most likely beyond repair. That is probably the worst thing that came out of all this when I think back to all the times Nick has stayed at my house and all the things that he, myself and my 2 sons have done together. I can still not fantom why he cannot see like everyone else that DT is the most likely culprit in all of this. That one eludes me.
