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.

Champlain Bombed, Defense Plans Fail SPRINGFIELD- Breaking news comes to Springfield today as it is discovered that the capital city of Champlain is under aerial bombardment from the Warsaw Pact, most likely the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Some pictures of the city were recovered, where you could see the rubble and destruction across the city, which is as good as destroyed. Whether or not the government officials, specifically President Baxter, made it out alive and okay is unknown, therefore until then the country is de facto anarchy. At about five o'clock in the morning yesterday, December 15, the city of Champlain was attacked. Today was the day the bill for the declaration of war on the Warsaw Pact was to take place following large amounts of support from the people of Massachusetts. Military personnel was already on watch around the city, and were to arms quickly after the first bomb went off. Unfortunately, they were unable to withstand the firepower of Soviet forces. Soviet soldiers marched through the rubble around eight o'clock, invading the city. It is unknown how many soldiers invaded Champlain, however they controlled the city until about midnight, when they left, taking the survivors with them. Fortunately, some escaped, however the numbers are few. More information will be given as it becomes available.
World at War, Commonwealth Faces Russian Threat CHAMPLAIN- The recent fighting in Europe has now been officially classified as a world war pegged the name "World War III." Henceforth, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has managed to maintain neutrality in the conflict, however problems continue to rise including threats from the Soviet Union. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a very capitalist nation, has been under threats from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, also known as the U.S.S.R., including bombing threats. President Baxter made an announcement on the topic last Friday where he declared this the "end of the world" unless Massachusetts defended itself. It is expected that he will ask Congress for a Declaration of War sometime this week. With election day coming closer, President Baxter will likely be looking for anything that will rise his approval ratings to prepare for potential re-election.
Invasion of Cantabria, and Invasion of Asturias, by UWR Forces. (1/7) Satander- Yesterday, at exactly nine o'clock at night, the first invasion by British forces took place around the Cantabria region. British soldiers are attempting to infiltrate the capital of the region, Satander, causing fear and distress to rise from the situation for many people. However, following many interviews and surveys, we can determine that a large percentage of people in the region are looking at the optimist's side of the situation, since the region will finally be moderated by a governing body rather than the region being in literal anarchy for years and years on end, the only Spanish land not in anarchy for a long period would be Andalucia, before Northlands folded under what is thought to be pure political pressure. The 9 PM invasion took place on shores about 70 miles east and west of Satander, where the soldiers, thought to be under command directly from the President of the United Worker Republics, or U.W.R., Joseph Alexander. His orders are thought to have been interpreted as peaceful entry, with fair treatment of any Spanish people who do not attack the forces first. Only in a situation where they are ambushed should they fire back at the Spanish. This should come as a relief that the United Worker Republics are treating the Spanish fair and have no intentions to needlessly and inhumanly kill innocent people during the invasion process, at least in this region. Asturias- At about nine o'clock last night, the United Worker Republics landed in the region of Asturias, landing ships on the shoreline. Shortly following the naval landing, U.W.R. Airplanes landed in airports across the region including in the capital, Oviedo. Many of the planes released soldiers, while others simply prepped to go back in the air. This area has been known for high levels of resistance, however the people of the region also show that they want to have a stable government, just not the U.W.R. or any other communist nation similar to it. Because of this high resistance, Joseph Alexander, President of the United Worker Republics, took it upon himself to order the aerial bombings of the capital city of Oviedo, however British forces were also requested to evacuate about half of the innocent residents before the bombing run would begin. The bombs began at eleven o'clock and ended at one o'clock, and from what little we heard from survivors, the British soldiers treated the Spanish innocents fairly and protected them from gunfire and ambush from the resisting forces of the region. Joseph Alexander is expected to visit the region personally next month to establish a commanding outpost for future expeditions on the Iberian Peninsula.
“The economy.” Joseph Alexander said, looking at the crowds, “The economy will rise…and debt will fall. The dangers the future holds for us may all be avoided by one revolution.” He said, pausing for dramatic effect. “The economic revolution!” He yelled, allowing the crowds to cheer. “The former in your minds, our nation…not mine, not yours, but ours, can only be sustained through a thriving economy. What does an economy need? Why, it needs money to circulate!” He said, confidently. “The Shilling we have long awaited is finally in the Worker Republics! Denominations? *1, *2, *5, 10*, *25, *50*, *75, *100, *500, and *1000!” He said, slowly but gradually building up. “Other’s may ask, why give your people so much? Well, I might ask you, why do you give yours so little?” An uprising and powerful roar occurred, and Alexander stepped out of the spotlight. “I will do what it takes to maintain in power, for the sake of both me and my people,” Alexander said, addressing the Parliament. “I request the ‘unbiased’ parliament of the British Isles to extend my term limit.” He said. He expected loud applause to ring through the building, however it remained mostly quiet. Alexander expected, and hoped, that the Labour Party, the only legal party in the nation, would obviously cheer and defeat the ‘no’ voters. This seemed not the case. “Honorable President Alexander.” Said the Speaker of Parliament, Johnathon Hamilton. “Unfortunately, I don’t think that will be possible. It seems that could be deemed…unconstitutional, as well as the majority of your actions as President.” He said firmly. “I believe we hold early elections, and a vote held on both topics will occur in due time.” He said, and urged Alexander to exit. “I need this. This nation under the palm of another man frightens me, and we surely must not let that happen. We must hold this vote off, and somehow get the Parliament to change their minds.” He said to Louis May, his main advisor. “Well, Honorable Joseph.” He began, “You could dissolve Parliament and establish a new constitution while Parliament is being reestablished. It is unconstitutional, but I am sure you could pull it off without anyone thinking the wiser.” He said, chuckling slightly, “Except for that Hamilton kid, but he’ll be sent over to Aberdeen in a jiffy.” He completed. The Parliament was dissolved. The new constitution, the ‘Articles of Establishment’, would be drafted a week later, and approved by the President, the Honorable Joseph Alexander. Former Speaker of the Parliament Jonathon Hamilton is, months later, thought to be running a business in Aberdeen, Scotland and on a strict watch from the government following him spreading “conspiracies” about the reason for the new Constitution. The term limit of the Honorable President was, following approval from the new, “uncorrupt” Parliament, extended from 2 years to 10 years. Everything would return to how it was before the incident within a period of 3 months. Why the old one-party parliament had suddenly turned on Alexander’s regime was unknown, however he planned to launch a quiet, but full-scale investigation.
Joseph grinned. "Yes, I believe that it is beneficial. I imagine the United Worker Republics spanning from the Isles to Spain, to the Philippines, and to America. I imagine a great nation of conquest, and an alliance with you seems to be mutually beneficial for both of us." He turned darker. "So, what you imagine for France?"
“I support the facts,” Alexander spoke in the square. “The fact is we simply cannot avoid war with the current position of our power.” He said. “These are the reasons I am here today.” He said, sounding farther down than ever. This was, as he implied, a very important address. This was his “Address to the Republics”, in which he traveled across the republics to address the people. This was his opening speech in Alexandria, the most important one in which tens of thousands watched in person, and millions of millions watched on the television. “We have to not survive…this implies that you hold on against odds, or only barely sustaining. We need to thrive, not just as six different nations—England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Man, and Ireland—but as one singular nation united to fight against one thing…oppression. This is not just one issue. This is a unity of issues, fixed on the singular goal of destroying us and everything we have built. This will not happen to us, and anyone with this goal should be put to the gun!” Alexander concluded, and exited. “It is time to take action.” Alexander said to the Legislature. “I call upon you all. It is time to conquer. Our cause: spreading the welfare of the Worker Republics to Mainland Europe. I call upon you, the law, to pass legislation calling for the invasion of the Iberian Penninsula.” Alexander said. His Regime had recently succeeded in making all parties except for his own illegal in the United Worker Republics, hence why he could practically exercise any authority he deemed necessary. Hence also why the vote to invade Spain and Portugal was a success. Hence also one reason for opening relations with the other European nations with similar interests as himself. The vote ended unanimously. Along the streets of Alexandria stood soldiers. Some marching through the city, some establishing checkpoints. Earlier that day, Joseph Alexander, President, declared all of the United Worker Republics under high level security. This was, of course, before his trip to Alvonia. The streets were empty. Near the ports of Dover were U.W.R. Navy ships and soldiers boarding the ships as they prepared to make way for Iberia. They had not told anyone of the plans, and had no intention to until the last possible moment. “I understand the fear of our recent military actions. I fear too, my friends. I fear for us. I fear during the day, I fear at night, and I fear right now with you. But what is going on is only for the best of not just us, but others. I would never hurt a man or a woman, especially any of those loyal to our free cause. I encourage everyone to continue with their lives, and I assure you we will all, as free men and women, remain that way.” Alexander said, following recent expression of fear from the military activity. Alexander then retired to his home where he got some much-needed rest.
IMPROVEMENTS UNDER THE REPUBLIC The new Republic of Moscow, officially the Republic of the Imperial Muscovite Districts and Affiliates, which has now overthrown the Democratic Republic of the Imperialist Moscow, has already been deep into work with the Blue Sphere in improving the Muscovite nation. They have already begun investing into improvements, such as a Harbor, something that the Communists were unable to achieve, as well as working with the people to rise the happiness in the nation. It is a good time to be in Moscow.
COMMUNISTS OVERTHROWN, DEMOCRACY REPLACES Recently, the long-ruling Communist dictatorship in Moscow was challenged by a group of democratic supporters. The peaceful protest, one similar to the actions of Ghandi, led to the dissolution of the Communist rule and a Federal Government in its place. The new government is tasked with rebuilding the economy and upgrading the infrastructure, with the goal of transforming Moscow into a world power. Moscow is now part of the Blue Sphere following the secession from the Red Sphere a couple of months ago. Imperial Muscovy remains Unaligned to any alliances or affiliations.
Joseph looked at Piontek, and responded by extending his hand in return. "Good afternoon, your Excellency. It is an honor." Alexander took a moment to gain himself, and began pacing around the room. "Sir, I wish to create an alliance between ourselves, your Alvonia, Yugoslavia, if they would be interested, and any other nations you think would show interest. This way, we may drive Belarus out of Poland and continue conquest across Europe. And, if someone wants to get into our way, or they want to stop our mission, then I suppose we'll just have to stop theirs." He looked up, and waited for a response.
