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.

In preparation to continue enforcing the blockade, mine-laying support ships of the US Navy began to drop mines across common sea-lane zones that were expected to be used, and talk-between-ships informed the surface combatants of what was in the waters, and what areas to avoid. Recon and observation planes aboard the USS Yorktown and Georgia spotted the incoming Spanish ships - and also spotted Spanish transports attempting to run the blockade. The transports were warned exactly once in Spanish to stop, and once they continued on their path of sure destruction, were fired upon by the destroyers and light cruisers of the USN First Fleet, while planes prepared to take off from the USS Yorktown. The USS Georgia, Lexington and Myrtle Beach all trained their guns, should one of the smaller cousins miss or something else appear over the horizon.
Some years ago, on the State Opening of Parliament in 1934, the Westminster Palace cellars were ceremonially searched by the Yeomen Guards, as with every State Opening since the 17th century - to prevent a repeat of the Gunpowder Plot. The ceremony continued when the guardsmen came back up and, as with every year, reported that the cellars were free of evildoers. King George V arrived at the Palace to give his annual speech to Parliament. Near the close of his speech, something entirely unexpected happened. Several dozen tons of TNT placed in the Palace cellars, underneath the House of Lords chamber was detonated. In an event that came to be called the second Burning of Parliament, the King, the government, the opposition, and over a thousand Lords, MP's, clerks, guests, and members of the public perished as a hellish orange mushroom cloud rose above Westminster. The people who "searched" the cellars were nowhere to be found, and the real Yeomen Guards supposed to be there that night were discovered floating in the Thames some time after. Nobody knew who the culprits were - anarchists, communists, fascists, the military, a foreign power. The only thing that was clear was someone with access to tons upon tons of TNT had wanted at least one person in attendance dead and didn't mind the collateral damage. Present day, 194X Years of chaos and civil war in Britain had finally passed, leaving Edward, Prince of Wales in charge of the country. His domain was much reduced. The colonies and dominions had drifted away, and he had abandoned them to their own devices, particularly the Africans whom he held in disdain. On his coronation day, he was crowned King of England and Wales. Apart from England and Wales, his kingdom held the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands, Orkney, and Bermuda. The Empire existed only in vestigial form, but Edward was determined not to let the sun set on it under his reign. He had encouraged the press to blame the bombing of Parliament on communists and other leftist agitators, but it didn't really matter who had done it now. He had drastically cut back constitutional limits on the monarchy, and rather than the Kingdom being a parliamentary republic paying lip service to a monarchy like it had been in his father's time, it was now the other way around. Edward VIII was crowned alongside Queen Wallis, and not even the church complained. It was now his duty to form a proper government, and he issued a radio address some time after his coronation. "We speak to you now on a matter most important, to address the proper governance of our land. In the difficult years since the passing of our king, you, our subjects, have wanted for a government which shall attend to your needs and the Kingdom's. The previous system, while noble in its goals, had miserably failed the people of Britain and its colonies and dominions across the seas. It allowed itself to be destroyed by traitorous elements which have yet to be brought to justice. It is because of this that we shall usher in a new age of a stronger government, selected and guided by the sovereign. We shall make our selection known in due time. The sun has set on the old British Empire, and many of its dominions now lay free of England's influence. This is for the best. We do not need hordes of uncivilized peoples holding us back from our destiny of becoming, and continuing to be the greatest nation on Earth. A new day dawns on the Kingdom of England and Wales. God bless you all." Edward did not appoint a prime minister for some time. Most of the people he wanted, including his first choice Lloyd George, had all perished along with his father. Edward continued to run the business of state and government himself, with a close knit group of advisors. His first act as king was to inaugurate Westminster Square. The ruins of the Palace had been razed to the ground and replaced with a square, dominated by a statue of Britannia that faced across the Thames and was even larger than Nelson's column. In the coming days, the military would be organized. A standing army was already in place in England and Wales, and much of the fleet still remained in Scapa Flow. Edward, being a supporter of air travel and a qualified pilot, intended to strengthen the RAF and build modern aircraft carriers to bring England into the modern age. A telegram was sent to the heads of state of most nations - deliberately leaving out the communist ones - announcing the coronation and inviting them to establish embassies in London. -------------------------------------- Factbook - Kingdom of England and Wales Head of State: Edward VIII Head of Government: Ditto, for now Form of Government: Absolute monarchy Capital: London Points breakdown: 150 points - tech year 1940 50 points - 500,000 soldiers 10 points - 3000 artillery pieces 15 points - 750 medium tanks 10 points - 1000 light tanks 15 points - 1500 fighters and bombers 25 points - 50 destroyers 25 points - 25 cruisers 3 points - 1 battlecruiser 50 points - 10 battleships 40 points - 4 carriers 20 points - 60 submarines Everything else - industry

Markus Wilding posted a topic in Fantasy RP (IC)Comrades of the Communist States of America, rejoice! ATLANTA, GA In the newly-announced capital, President Chairman Earl Browder delivered a speech, in which he reiterated that the American Red Army would commit itself not only to defending the borders of the Communist States of America, but also to expanding what party leaders have called the Golden Circle, a relic some may remember from the American Civil War in the 1860's. In this speech, President Chairman Browder reminded the American people that while the American Red Army is strong and will crush all opposition, it is not yet ready to undertake such a grand and large operation. Also in Atlanta, President Chairman Earl Browder named his cabinet, which consists of: President Chairman: Earl Browder Vice President: James W. Ford Secretary of State: Eugene Dennis Secretary of Defense: Warwick J. Stoddardd Secretary of Treasury: Lyall Rimmer Secretary of Education: Art M. Sanders Secretary of Agriculture and Industry: Royce Winter Attorney General: Alvin Sutton
The People of the Socialist Republics of Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi come together to form a most perfect Union, in which all peoples and workers will not be in want of food, medicine, and work, and where the glorious American Red Army will strive to defeat Fascists, enemies of the workers, the bourgeoisie, and imperialists in all forms. We as a nation and people reject Yankee economic dominance and European adventurism and imperialism. The will of our people is to build a most perfect society in which all are equal under the state and economic opportunities are abound for all. The Communist States of America officially opens its doors to those who wish to join with our Union, and will defend to the death those who oppose us.
The sudden attack on an emissary was a disgusting and horrid act that would not go unpunished, within hours the Spanish Empire declared war on the South East Tribes of Florida. Most of its mighty fleet would cross the Atlantic, over 500,000 well trained and heavily armed Spanish troops were given orders to invade Florida. Official Declaration of War From this day on, the Empire of Spain declares war on the savage unkept tribes of Florida. Our army shall break these renegades and reestablish order to the territory. Glory to our army, and glory to Emperor Mendoza. May God bring our empire victory. -Chavez Gustava, head of propaganda and social affairs Invasion of Jacksonville Squadrons of Spainish Buffalos would fly recon over the coast of Florida, as the Spanish fleet closed in long range guns on the El Cid Battleships began to open fire along Palm Valley and Jacksonville beach, their guns decimating anything not prepared for their hard hitting shells. Aircraft from carriers flew out constantly looking for enemy aircraft, if none were found they would strafe anything that moved on the ground near the city. Spanish transport ships carrying Spanish infantry in the first wave upwards to 15,000 troops were split into three strike teams. Strike team A would land at Usina Beach, their goal was to secure Araquey and make a landing for the tanks. strike team B would hit Atlantic beach, mission goals to engage any enemy resistance head on to draw away from the other strike teams. And Strike team C would land at Cedar Point, their goal was to secure the North flank and establish a forward landing base for the main invasion. All while the invasion took place heavy bombers being flown off carriers would bombard targets at the center of Jacksonville. Imperial Subs would be deployed to cut off any and all enemy ship activity along the coast threatening the Imperial fleet, and Spanish operatives began working double time in Cuba to establish it as a primary forward base, the war for Florida had begun. Spanish El Cid class warship firing its long range guns on the beaches of Jacksonville.
Peter Ilyich posted a topic in Fantasy RP (IC)OOC: Anyone can vote. Voting will end in about 24 hours. Welcome to Your Local Voting Station Boston, Massachusetts November 21st Section 1: The Parties Republican Party: Republicans believe that everyone has the right to the same things: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. They believe in States rights and in lowered taxes, as well as believing in keeping foreign influence on the nation to a minimum.. Democratic Party: The Democrats are essentially the opposites of the Republicans. Ideals include more authority in the federal government, higher taxes as well as more tax for the wealthy, and support foreign colonisation. This includes taking away the right to bear arms established by Coolidge. Harbor Party: People in the Harbor Party, called Harborcrats, believe that the United States of America needs to be reformed to not only what it once was, but to become greater. This also includes the belief that the Commonwealth should be based upon more American ideals, including but not limited to: The flag, seal, motto, beliefs, economics, and constitution. This essentially means they want to recreate the United States through expanding the borders and send the US into full reform. The party was founded a year ago by Malcolm Nichols and other American Enthusiasts. Section 2: President As recovered from the Boston Journal 3 days ago, a summary of the candidates: Section 3: Legislature And of these three parties could gain the majority this year, and any can drastically fall. It is important that all three parties have different ideals and positions to keep the ballot clear and your vote quick. Voting for the ideals of yourself and yourself only is required for a fair vote. Below is the parties and what year After Commonwealth Independence(ACI) they had majority in the past. Republican- 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Democrat- 1 Harbor- None This could be the first year the Harbor Party gains the majority in the legislature, a major turn in events. Place your votes, folks! Note: Elected politicians will take office January 1st, 7 ACI.
To: Whom it May Concern within the Spanish Empire From: President Calvin Coolidge Dear Spain, It is with the greatest hope that I contact your glorious empire. I do hope your government would be willing to bring over a Representative and establish an embassy in Boston. I look forward to your arrival. Sincerely,
A messenger arrived at the Kremlin draped in a black wool uniform covering him head to toe showing the snow and ice still pelted to him. It was obvious how it bothered him he was no native to these lands. He had brought a letter for the Russian government stamped with the black eagle of Spain. "Our empires have survived much and have stood tall despite such resolve to break them, we would like to send a formal representative of the empire of Spain to the tsardom of Russia to discuss possible relations. Signed. Carlos Mendoza"

Cybernations Roleplay "1940" Current GM's: Peter Ilyich, Greywall Official Timescale: 1 RL month = 1 IC Year IRC: #cnrp40 The Setting The year doesn't matter; we'd never all agree on a timeline anyway so you might as well use 194X. The only common history is that World War I happened to some degree, except it ended in a white peace of some kind. The technology years range from 1935 to 1940. This means the equipment must be in production or service in your tech year. This will be detailed more in the rules. Starting a Nation There are three ways to start a nation. - The first is to find white space that is not labelled as a protectorate, and post a DoE. - The second way is to find a protectorate and either request it of them private message its owner (there is a list of protectorate owners below) or find them in our Coldfront channel, #cnrp2. - You may also make a post in this map thread asking if there is any significant land. There is a rare occasion that someone will grant you a piece of their own (coloured) land, but this is, like I said, rare. (Thank you CNRP2 Rule Thread) Only after a DoE has been posted will land go on the map. This means that posting in the map thread that you want Examplestan does not guarantee you Examplestan. If somebody DoE's before you as Examplestan, then you're out of luck; talk to them, not the mapmaker. Oversea Territories (colonies) are allowed when establishing one's nation, but will be limited.

Land expansion is fully contestable for two (2) weeks, and the annexed land cannot be added to the map until the two weeks have been completed. Land Expansion should typically be only of provinces/states; exceptions to annex a whole country* may be asked of the GM team. Annexation requires a minimum of five (5) posts; up to three (3) additional posts may be requested by the GM as a team should the territory be considered large. *This would be most appropriate in areas such as the Balkans. All links directly related to the expansion must be included in the map thread post requesting the land, at the end of the two weeks. All annexation, contestation of annexation, and protectorates, requires soldiers on the ground, or something equivalent, which is deducted from your force count. Section 3: The Gamemasters & Mapmaker The Mapmaker holds the position of making the map. This is a volunteer position. The Map Maker's powers are limited to the following: -Making the map; this means that it is the mapmaker's job to place the territory held by players onto the map. -Denying unreasonable claims. The mapmaker may decline claims of excessive starting size (for example, China + Tibet + Mongolia, or Germany + Poland, would be excessive starting claims). This can be overruled by the GM team. -Enforcing Section 3 through their Map Making powers. -Maintaining Updated Rules: The mapmaker must keep the rules in the thread accurate and up to date. There are three (3) GM's, who are elected for two (2) month terms. The nomination period lasts 48 hours, followed by a 48 hour election. Only players with nations may vote. Their powers are explained below: -Random Event rolls & points: Once a week the GM team may make a roll for a Random Event (Section 4). Nations targeted may opt out of the event. Nations which RP the Random Event out may earn up to 3 national points, the awarding of which must be approved by the full GM team. If a GM's nation is chosen, they are excluded from the GM team in terms of the vote. -Dispute Arbitration: The GM team pause, retcon, or make rulings on roleplays in order to create a healthier community. During a dispute, the two parties must send a PM to all involved parties, as well as the full GM team. If a GM's nation is involved, they may not rule on the matter. -Creation of Rule Polls: Alternations to rules must be made by the players. A player discussion must run for a minimum of one (1) week, after which polling options must be presented by the players. An option for the status quo must always be included in the poll. The poll runs for 48 hours. The winning option is then given to the mapmaker to be placed in the Map & Rules thread. -Removal of Players: The GM team may create a poll to remove a player. A 75% majority is needed to remove a player from the RP. -IC/OOC Line Enforcement: The GM team holds the exclusive power to retcon roleplay, without evidence, should the team as a whole suspect that the IC/OOC line is being toyed with or tampered. This does not allow removal of nations; merely the retcon of specific RP. Section 4: Random Events Once a week, the GM team may make two rolls: one to determine the impacted nation, and one to apply one (1) of the effects on the list. Nations targeted may opt out of the event. Nations which RP the Random Event out may earn up to 3 national points, the awarding of which must be approved by the full GM team. If a GM's nation is chosen, they are excluded from the GM team in terms of the vote. -Emergence of Counter-Government Revolutionaries -Drought/Poor Harvest -Economic Recession -Heavy Rains & Flooding -Workers' Strikes in one or more major cities -Soldiers' Strikes in one or more brigades -Assassination/death of a government official -Pandemic/Plague in one or more major cities -Large National Disaster (Earthquake, large tornadoes, etc.) -Economic/Industrial Disaster (Major mine collapses, price for specific commodity collapses, major ammunition factory explodes, etc.) Section 5: Community Drive Rules Changing the rules is up to the community. The members of the community have a voice in deciding what the rules are and how they should be applied. Members of the CNRP'40 community can post discussion threads to talk about new rules, old rules, and/or changing the rules. Polls can be posted as well, however, GM polls are the official measure of the community's desire to modify, remove, or add new rules. Rule Vote Archives: Initial Rule Vote
Following the dissolution of the United States and the seizure of Hawaii by imperialist bourgeois colonial interests, the local residents of Hawaii have fled in a small fleet and arrived in thinly occupied Alaska to establish the Social Kingdom of Hawaii in Exile. The bitter cold of this land of exile has hardened the Kanaka Maoli into a resolute fighting force intent on the survival of the Hawaiian People. Using the oil, gold and other resources of the former US territory, the Kanaka Maoli have adopted Sovereign Socialism and has been rapidly growing in industry and influence due to forward-thinking policies. Vast areas around the Yukon River are also being colonized, with most of the terrain surrounding the Yukon River being colonized by Kanaka Maoli settlements. Thus along with Alaska, the Yukon and parts of Northwest British Colombia are also being civilized by our culture. More information to follow.

Capital of new Republic Declared in New Haven, Connecticut New Haven, Conn. - The newly elected President of Connecticut confirmed today that the first sessions of Congress and the new administration will be taking place in New Haven. Located in the southern portion of the country, New Haven is a small but bustling city of around 160,000 inhabitants. The first congress of the Republic of Connecticut will be meeting in an older building, the New Haven State Library until the formal Capitol buildings and infrastructure can be completed sometime next year. The elections to the Presidency and the Congress took place earlier this week with most of the 36 Seats in the Senate, and 151 Seats in the House going to the Democratic-Republican party. The main opposition party in Congress is the National Republican party. The President, Roger Sherman and His Vice-President, Oliver Wolcott are expected to issue an address by radio to the people of Connecticut to announce the location of the Capital later this evening.
How Malcolm Nichols Will Transform Massachusetts How The Newly-Elected Harbor Follower Will Change the Nation Concord, Massachusetts- Just recently elected Harbor Party member Malcolm Nichols is a very smart man, but is he smart enough, and powerful enough, to take over State Street and transform our entire nation? The Boston Herald tackles this latest debate. Although the Harbor Party failed to win the first vote to recreate the United States of America, the party is still on it's feet, and Malcolm Nichols himself stated that the loss is only a "Minor setback that should be able to be put behind us rather quickly." Whether this will happen should be discovered sometime within the up-and-coming months as the party begins to enter a cool-down phase from it's recent frenzy on State Street. However, we are trailing away from the debate. The idea that Department of the Interior cabinet member will be able to transform Massachusetts is an interesting one. He has already established the CMS Constitution as a exhibit at the new Charlestown Naval Mueseum, and has come up with the idea of building a "Freedom Trail" with several monuments that represent American Freedom. Nichols has already begun transforming the Commonwealth of Massachusetts into the United States of America, State of Massachusetts. With likely many more ideas on the way, Malcolm Nichols is only just getting started on the road to the New United States. The question, unfortunately, that every single person in government has asked him is what if the other nations say no? After all, all three nations are in fantastic political, economical, and social positions as well as cultural. Unfortunately, the government has not been very revealing of their actions as of late and this information is the maximum the federal's have revealed.
OOC: Please, this is public, but do not reply in this thread. Also, this is simply stating the actions of a political party in Massachusetts, nothing more. Do not think this is an actual proposal because it is not unless I state so IC in a reply IC: The people marched. They marched down Yawkey Way, past the rebuilt Fenway Park. They marched down past Bunker Hill, past what is known as the New State House, no longer in use. The streets were crowded and traffic was at a maximum as people in their cheap Ford's and expensive Bugatti's were yelling at the people to move. But they didn't. They kept marching, Walking down famous Washington Street and finally reaching the address marked "206". The State House, seat of the legislature and home of the executive branch. Then, the people took out their signs. from "Reunite", to "Connect the Nations", to simply holding up that flag that ever-so represented the people's campaign. It began with thirteen famous stripes, each switching between red and white as you slowly scanned the flag, from the top to the bottom. Then you would direct your eyes to the upper-left corner, where a blue box was located. Inside the box was forty-eight white stars, representing the forty-eight states that were once united. The most recent of many flags that defunct nation held. Upon the Betsy Ross, to the Star-Spangled Banner, to the rare but well-recognized '76 flag. These were all the people needed to get attention. For all of them, they already had representation inside that building. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts well-known, Harbor Party. formed six months ago, this political party had 10 representatives in the legislature, and were gaining them every election day. The one goal: reunite the former United States of America. Then, everyone at once, the people began to disregard the national anthem of the Commonwealth, Massachusetts the Grand, but instead began to cry out the former national anthem of the United States of America, "Hail Columbia!". Some who did not want to sing this decided to read the American patriotic poem, The Defense of Fort M'Henry by Francis Scott Key. After a while people came out of surrounding buildings either aggrevated, and they went home, or cheerful, and joined in on the rally. Then, people came out of the building which interested them the most, the State House. Harbor Party Member Richard Cain of Essex exited first, and called for the attention of his fellow members. "Friends! Please, clam down for a moment... No, I am just joking! Reunite!" Nobody else would exit until about an hour in, when the singing of Yankee Doodle began, when Vice President and Republican Percival Proctor Baxter exited and stated. "Attention. Your actions here today could not be understated. Although your movement is not what I follow, thanks to the representation here today, and the continual request for our discussion of the topic, I am sure this will be put into serious consideration, I will make sure of it." And so, on that day July 4th, 19XX, the Harbor Party took over the Massachusetts government. And on that day, they promised they would remain active in rallies and protests in the days coming up. Even as only the 3rd largest political party in the country, today, it felt like the largest in the world.
You get one vote, vote closes in 48 hours. You need a valid nation in CNRP40 to vote. Posting here voids your vote. Proposal 1: Each individual has the full set of 800, but must RP their own forces. Proposal 2: In a merged nation, each individual gets a decreasing amount of points. 1st person merging gets 600 on top of the original's 800. 2nd gets 400. 3rd gets 200. Everyone can RP each others forces. Proposal 2-B: In a merged nation, each individual gets a decreasing amount of points. 1st person merging gets 600 on top of the original's 800. 2nd gets 400. 3rd gets 200.
