      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. Imperium Recognition of War

    Before someone politicizes this, I just want to say enjoy the war and this community you just joined on here, and I'm sure you will get help for getting back to where you were pre-war at some point post war.
  2. Imperium Recognition of War

    I must have used a lot of foresight stepping down in December because of this...
  3. Imperium Recognition of War

    No, you haven't. You make up lies and post them and hope no one calls you out. And making up a lie that someone said they would disband alliances over tech rates in a public channel was a particularly dumb one as its easily verified as not true. You have engaged in a systematic pattern of slander and !@#$%^&*, alliance and personal attacks, and repugnant behavior in both public and private. The result has been war. I hope the membership of SNX is happy with what they are defending.
  4. Imperium Recognition of War

    I have logs from everything said when I am in #sengoku. Nothing you said happened. Saying it is just speculation is as false as all the other trash you have said. Your alliance is now at war because of your comments, that you won't take any responsibility for them isn't really surprising at this point.
  5. Imperium Recognition of War

    And when was this? Hopefully one of the many people who spend time in that public channel can confirm your story. Or if not, your members will know what I know. That you are a lying bag of filth, who has thrown out reckless claims like that and brought this war upon yourself. Fortunately, public channels are public so this one should be easy to resolve.
  6. Imperium Recognition of War

    Okay, my turn to ask. 10:20 PM <•Immortan_Junka> He said in #sengoku the other day that he had no issues disbanding an AA that sold tech at rates he disagreed with Mind providing the logs from this public channel? Thanks.
  7. Imperium Recognition of War

    (That one is my favorite.)
  8. Imperium Recognition of War

    Your log dumping with selective editing shows your lack of integrity. Everything you do shows your lack of integrity. You are slime. You have engaged in public and private lies, slander and ic and ooc attacks after a peace deal which prevented your ally from being attacked, and which your ally supported. I summarized my stance on the negotiations earlier: And I summarized my position to you after seeing your before post peace: <hartfw> A peaceful resolution happened because people supported peace and worked to get it for snx there <hartfw> and you turn and publicly &#33;@#&#036; on that <hartfw> You seemed to want war the other day <hartfw> I'm happy to see it go that way next time after witnessing yoru conduct in public here. You have continued to assert that Sengoku (who wasn't even a party to the talks) supported disbanding an alliance who I made clear I had no qualms with and supported a diplomatic solution. You have continued to assert that you were threatened by me (or the non-existent Sengoku) when not one such threat occurred and no such claim can be substantiated. You have log dumped the talks and highly selective conversations -- including ones you weren't even a party to -- in an effort to slant the framing and call into question issues that cannot even be addressed here. You have made deplorable comments in public and private, comments that I won't repeat here. You have gone over and beyond in making yourself repugnant. So, at least give the community the decency to finish your latest log dump snippet. Maybe not to the point of calling others Moo, and maybe not when you called people criminals IRL. But at least to the acknowledgement that my ill will right now is solely the product of your behavior: [15:13] <hartfw> your slander will not be forgotten [15:14] <hartfw> Ive encouraged people not to war you on more than one occasion [15:14] <hartfw> those days are done. [15:14] <Immortan_Junka> Ok, well it seems I've been constantly threatened over the last few months [15:14] <hartfw> your slander will not be forgotten [15:14] <hartfw> Great [15:14] <Immortan_Junka> Slander is something that's false [15:14] <hartfw> Well, add one from me now [15:14] <hartfw> I will personally hit SNX at some point over yoru public comments <hartfw> after personally egtting peple to not hit snx <hartfw> and then having you slander <hartfw> And wehn I do <hartfw> Blame yourself (apologies for the typos)
  9. Imperium Recognition of War

    I now know you to be the slime and filth that you are. Encouraging that situation to not go to war was a mistake. But the peace that caused you to behave so poorly had literally both sides apologizing to each other and everyone satisfied with a non war outcome but you.
  10. Imperium Recognition of War

    Except the fact that my position was made abundantly clear that I wanted a diplomatic solution. And I went on record supporting SNX's right to exist. And have in the past talked friends down from attacking SNX. The entire point of the talks was to get a non war solution -- which succeeded. And would have ended the matter if Tywin did not start attacking me personally repeatedly from about 6 hours after everyone went on their merry way from there. But yeah, if you ignore all the facts, and start from a position of ignorance, I could see how you could jump to a faulty conclusion. However, thats your bias and ignorance not the reality of the situation.
  11. Imperium Recognition of War

    Pretty much, yeah. And after peace was agreed to by all and everyone went on their way. But Tywin made clear his position that he didn't intend to actually stick to peace a few pages back -- claiming that a bad peace was worse than war -- and thus went out of his way to be so repugnant that a war would happen anyway.
  12. Brief statement from Cowboys

    We definitely are a small alliance. On the other hand, the transgressions of your government are real and well documented. Shame that SNX government sees fit to act so deplorable to small alliances, necessitating war.
  13. Imperium Recognition of War

    At no point did Cowboys or myself express a threat to SNX. In fact, we started the talks on good terms you and I: Jul 10 14:08:44 <hartfw[Cowboys]> While I am trying to get this resolved diplomatically Jul 10 14:08:59 <hartfw[Cowboys]> I would like to add on the record that Cowboys has no issues with SNX's right to exist Jul 10 14:09:11 <hartfw[Cowboys]> and just hope all our allies can achieve appy resolutions here *(should say happy)* Jul 10 14:09:26 <Immortan_Junka> Yeah I know you guys are reasonable You had an Caustic demanding Shark Week and a Minc looking to 'disband' SCOTLAND, and yet peace talks ended with peace and an apology from Minc as well as from SCOTLAND. That I had tried my hardest to get a diplomatic solution might not be something you believe. Despite the logs showing it was my stance. Perhaps just magically everyone stopped wanting war. But after your public posts I told you I wouldn't encourage peace again for SNX, twice was feeling once too many. Your personal attacks, selective log dumps, and general just &#33;@#&#036;%* behavior has been deplorable and compelled me to act in the exact opposite way I was encouraging others to act a day ago. Having seen what was said in those logs after I left as well as here, it is clear you simply desired to start an aggressive war. You just went and did so in a particularly slimy manner. Your alliance deserves better than you.
  14. Imperium Recognition of War

    Your despicable behavior resulted in this war, when otherwise there was peace.
  15. Imperium Recognition of War

    I cannot speak to Minc's motivation and I won't. And I don't speak for Sengoku and made that clear there as well. There was a peace made in which SNX wasn't even a party. In which Minc apologized as well as Scotland. If you cannot see that diplomacy was at play and working towards peace, it is because you are blind and dumb. And even blind and dumb doesn't excuse your comments.
