      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. Shame, Shame, Shame

    Each have their own opinions; the majority know what you did was over-the-top and a way to beg to get rolled. As for DCS, the attack is by definition well within raiding policies (DCS does have 3 members). However, that situation was handled the proper way... By communication Hopefully during the rest of the round Wolves will take a more diplomatic approach to avoid their members getting whacked.
  2. And now, an announcement from the Independent Republic of Orange Nations Earlier today Mr. Al Bundy decided to attack one of our members who squirted one of his pups with a little $1 squirt gun from Walmart. Here was the weapon of choice: For this, they tried to take a bite from the kind lady trying to have some watery fun in the sun! I guess that means it's time to tame these mean little puppies and teach them respect for their water gun wielding elders... With water gun fun in the sun! IRON hereby declares war on the Wolves of the North And we're bringing all the expensive squirt guns this time! Signed, IRON:TE Council LordSunday - President/Minister of Foreign Affairs MegaZeux - Minister of Defense/Minister of Economics Sister Midnight - Minister of Internal Affairs/Sphere Senator
  3. Shame, Shame, Shame

    Could also be due in part that we all see the obscene amount of drama you added to what could've been handled and done with hours ago... Just a thought
  4. Shame, Shame, Shame

    And the $1 squirt gun strikes again! Careful, you'll get full defensive slots for that!
  5. Shame, Shame, Shame

    In the future Al, I urge you to contact me or any of the other Councilors regarding this before making hasty decisions. A gather intel op, though an op nonetheless, is equivalent to getting shot with a $1 squirt gun from Walmart -- The type that breaks after 2 refills. The member who performed this op is newer to TE, and I'm waiting to hear back on why she did it.
  6. To whom it may concern, Below and herein contains the official Gentlemen's Accord of all sovereign alliances in CyberNations: Tournament Edition. All recognized alliances containing more than 5 members shall henceforth be bound by this Accord and its contents herein. ARTICLE I: Parties All alliances with a membership above 5 members shall be recognized for membership with all parties. Parties may propose to the other parties additions, subtractions, or modifications to this Accord at any time. If an alliance falls below the membership requirements for the entirety of one round, that alliance's membership will be revoked until a time they can again meet the requirements. All parties holding membership can and will be entitled to one singular vote on any proposal regarding the Accord. The vote shall be treated as the voice of that particular alliance, and cannot be changed once submitted. ARTICLE II: Structure Within the representative members of each party, the representatives will, at the beginning of each round, place vote for a Chairperson for the Accord in that specific round. Any current sitting representative may be elected to the position of Chairman. The Chairman position contains no extra powers in voting or speaking, but is responsible for providing effective communication between representatives for that round. The Chairman is also charged with announcing modifications to the official Accord should any amendments be added. ARTICLE III: Amendments Any member party of the Accord may suggest edits to this accord at any time. Alterations to the Accord must be met with no less than a three-fourths agreement from voting parties before it may be amended. Amendments that are made will take their first effect at the beginning of the next scheduled round, and may be revoked following the same process. ARTICLE IV: Policies The signing membership and alliances hereby and here forth agree to bind one another to the following policies: - An alliance that is exiting an alliance-wide war will be granted a 7-day amnesty from all aggressive wars against them. This amnesty can and will be considered forfeit if the alliance entices or declares a war themselves. - In the event of any war, all operations and features of the game can be used. If both opposing parties decide on different terms, this policy can be considered nullified for the duration of that singular conflict. - When preparing a Declaration of War, no alliance will engage another alliance that is 50,000 Nation Strength units below them or 5,000 average Nation Strength units below them. If no alliances below the offensive alliance are in this range, and declaring to larger alliances would result in significant disadvantage, the offensive alliance may declare one space lower than them by score on the Alliance Listing screen. ARTICLE V: Violations Any alliance that is within membership requirements and violates any of the stated policies in Article IV or any amended policies will be subject to punishment as deemed by the membership minus the offending alliance. In the instance of violations, the majority vote after a 72 hour period from the time of offense will be the decided action taken. If an alliance that has withdrawn from the accord hence breaks the accord, they will be dealt with as each individual alliance sees fit and the terms of this accord will be nullified in their case. ARTICLE VI: Withdrawment Any alliance reserves the right if in membership bounds to tender a withdraw from the Accord. Any withdraw must be officially submitted in the OWF. After withdrawing, the withdrew alliance must wait one full round before they are able to request membership once again. ARTICLE VII: Signatories The following alliances hereby agree to the above mentioned articles and any below named amendments. HiredGun, Representative for DEFCON 1 LordSunday, Representative for the Independent Republic of Orange Nations Bajor, Representative for the United Nations LordHitchcock, Representative for the Roman Empire bigwilly, Representative for the New League of Nations
  7. Next Round (44?)

    Right... There's one award I notice you always fail to achieve... Actually it's the one award you really can't rig in your manipulation of the game dynamics. It's actually fun to watch you fail to get it time and time again... Call us up when you get Most Attacking Casualties, because that's an actual testament to good building, fighting, and coordination. Not turtling and buying lvl 5 aircraft to preserve a precious WC while your alliance's mid and lower tier suffer horrible losses fighting in wars they aren't able to handle
  8. Next Round (44?)

    Says the one who can't go multiple rounds without having to hide from D1... I think we know who the real laughing stocks are
  9. Many years ago, on Planet Bob an alliance rose in the Orange Sphere where none had stood before - the Independent Republic of Orange Nations, or IRON. Over the next 10 years, IRON has emerged to become one of the most dominant groups on Bob, full of the planet's fiercest warriors. Recently, some of these warriors transversed the pixel-plane and landed reborn and anew on a familiar, yet strange planet. After arriving, they learned the name of this planet was Steve, a close relative of Bob governed by similar yet different laws. These IRON-blooded warriors have spent many rounds hidden among the ranks of other alliances, learning more and more about Steve and how to be successful. Now, these warriors intend to return, but they are not alone. This time, they shall walk Planet Steve carrying high the banner of IRON, and they shall water the ground of their nations' with their enemies' blood. The Independent Republic of Orange Nations hereby announces its existence on Planet Steve TE Council: President/Minister of Foreign Affairs - LordSunday Minister of Defense/Minister of Economics - Talus Senator/Minister of Internal Affairs - Sister Midnight Note: The politics expressed by IRON in TE does not reflect the political views of IRON in SE, the same as IRON politics in SE do not reflect the political views of IRON in TE. Though both parties contain similar memberships, the two entities should be viewed differently as both exist to serve different functions and agendas.
  10. Next Round (44?)

    Admin didn't announce the next round until the 16th of the month last time, I'm sure we'll hear soon enough.
  11. Flag Runners You Suck

    Good to see how much you support your own gov though.. Throwing them under the bus for something that I personally know you made mention the UN should go for. I'm more than certain UN Government could attest to that.
  12. Flag Runners You Suck

    For ease of viewing pleasures
  13. Flag Runners You Suck

    http://tournament.cybernations.net/allNations_display.asp I mean they're 7/7 on the most recent nations... The last 5 of which were created within 12 hours of each other Then yeah, all of them within the hour decide UN is place to be, then are instantly accepted. Maybe they offer cookies... http://tournament.cybernations.net/nation_drill_display.asp?Nation_ID=1000383 http://tournament.cybernations.net/nation_drill_display.asp?Nation_ID=1000385 Same infra, land, tech, resources, improvements, wonders, and soldiers... I would have to say no, they can't be
  14. The final dance off

    That explains the mysterious envelope I received... It was a Gold Ticket with "VIP" on it... Was that for this party?
  15. Notice of Testing

    Well you followed one postulate of our terms Glad to see NLoN crawling a fraction out of their hole to try and defend themselves. As stated, our top tier hasn't touched you... Most of the wars you see were declared by the UN Government solely. We had a bone to pick with your antics following our war with Rebels. WD has a bone to pick for your behavior towards them when they were starting. Perhaps next time NLoN should follow the cordial agreements and basic respects that alliances have for one another. After that maybe you won't have to worry about getting beaten to 500 NS...
