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.

This reward goes out to everyone who has assisted in dealing with the attacks on many fronts from SNX; whether through votes, fighting, aid or tech deals.. Nexus Anarch Ribbon Special Recipient CheeseIceCream We have agreed on white peace with TAO & ceasefire with DK as we finish our war with SNX. SNX is now the only one pushing forward in the war against us & refusing our offer of white peace. Its been agreed since SNX is receiving aid & SNX is the only one who wants to keep challenging us, DK will no longer attempt to prevent any tech deals or aid being sent to either side in the war. Doing tech deals or aiding members or aNiMaLz & Limitless Nexus is the best way to help us make this quick & begin rebuilding. If SNX wants to try preventing tech deals or aids; they would need to do it themselves. So we are open for business. We consider SNX defeated & if he has all his nations send peace offers by update; as well as state his intention to accept white peace; we will allow him peace without forcing an admission of defeat, leadership change or change of colors. We prefer to be generous, but those who prefer fighting until a surrender can end up in a situation where that is the only way the war will end. When all I ask is he accept white peace to end the war he lost; I'm being to generous. However I've had people ask me to give Junka more chances that anyone else before I turn this into a fight until the other side concedes defeat; so this is that last chance for Junka to accept white peace with everyone else. When the war is completely over, a smaller sized version of the ribbon will be released with a list of recipients or individuals who have already deserved it can PM me for a smaller version.
Protection, Organization, Warriors, Expansion, Revolution, Senate (POWERS) Protection This treaty offers the protection of Limitless Nexus, S7 & LSA to signatories who need assistance. This protection becomes optional if a signatory carries out aggressive actions against other alliances to provoke the attack. In any case diplomacy or war may be used to resolve the matter, or a combination of both. Organization This treaty is signed with Limitless Nexus, but connects & encourages all signatories to assist each other as mutual allies. The Libertarian Stealth Army will be an extra-alliance entity including the best fighters from many alliances who are with POWERS Warriors Signatories agree to work towards weaponizing their nations with nuclear arms & other military wonders, in order to create a warrior class of nations. The nations who prove themselves capable warriors can join the Libertarian Stealth Army, who will be the elite and often times first responders when a POWERS member comes under threat. Expansion POWERS will continue to expand by offering protection to those who need it, as well as encouraging all signatories to hone their skills and join the Libertarian Stealth Army. The alliance affiliations of Libertarian Stealth Army & Section 7 are under the protection of POWERS as well. Revolution POWERS will bring about a new revolution with only having Limitless Nexus knowing how many members & alliances join POWERS in secrecy. Those joining can choose to become a secret member or public member of POWERS. Secret members can better retain the element of surprise & undertake covert missions. Senate Signatories agree to work together on the Brown Senate to get the Libertarian Empire elected. Signed for Limitless Nexus, Methrage, King of the Libertarian Empire Kaznawim, WaR Signed for Libertarian Stealth Army, Asero, Libertarian Stealth Army General Vassily, Section 8 Major Signed for Independent, xoindotnler Signed for Section 7, Nicholai, Section 7 Commander
Another message from a man long deceased released to international media Generalissimo on a Laptop, online courtesy of automatic Procinctian government systems protocols “This is a pre-recorded message from Generalissimo, Generalissimo of Procinctia, intended to convey my sentiments concerning a reformation of Procinctia from Greater China years following Alaska's invasion in circumstances where I have vanished in Arctic waters for more than a year." Scenario 04 Instead of the usual shenanigans of fashioned after Hari Seldon. . . . . . I am going to really be rather straightforward. Heir of Yuan family, whoever it may be now, I challenge you by honor of ancient rights. I challenged you to REVOLUTION. Martial engagement decided when but one is standing. The means of rightful Aleutian power." Procinctia's government-in-exile wasn't looking forward to inevitable and impending response by Tianxia. General consensus being that Generalissimo's brazen challenge was getting them killed. Still. . . an order from Generalissimo wouldn't be questioned. Their comrade leader surely had a greater plan, he always had a plan. If the will of their generalissimo was death - so be it. A paltry two among them believed this challenge would be accepted. Both women anticipated the impending duel.
An Official Announcement From the Killuminati Empire Emperor: HIM Haile Selassie I Chief Regent: Ras Loki Laufeyson The emperor has given me the authority to launch the revolution. Today, heads will roll and all will tremble before the might of the Killuminati Empire: GOONS, today you answer for your crimes. GOONS broke up several micro alliances and forced several people out of the game, including myself. I'm not going to sit here and say that I don't have a personal vendetta against GOONS. The truth is I hate GOONS, and want nothing more than to see them wiped from existence. Why? Because of what they did to me, and what they have done to other nations. Once upon a horrible time, I was a member of GOONS. During my time there, I was young and inexperienced. I failed in carrying out an assignment, and I was not masked as a full member. When the Grudge War began shortly after I joined, GOONS found itself at war with NPL. I engaged two NPL nations and reduced them to rubble. Still I did not become a full member, when I asked why I was insulted and called all sorts of names. I grew tired of GOONS and I left, I was then attacked with the trumped up charges of "techscamming" and I was forced to leave the game. OOC:(Once I returned as LexLuthor18, I learned further about GOONS and the crimes they committed.) I learned of a player named LOLman, the leader of a one-man micro alliance, who was destroyed simply because he was brave enough to fight back against getting tech raided by GOONS. I learned of GOONS' war against a micro known as MONGOLS. After Kaskus intervened on behalf of their allies in MONGOLS, GOONS like the cowards they are were forced to run under the skirts of MK and Pandora's Box. Both Kaskus and MONGOLS were piled on and forced to surrender. All of these things only made the genuine hatred I had for GOONS much more deep and intense. I have realized that GOONS, along with MK who took their proverbial balls and went home once they lost in EQ, are responsible for the degeneracy and stagnancy in CN politics; I then made it my solemn vow that I will not rest until GOONS is annihilated and a new order comes to CN. They have returned to power by riding the coattails of TOP and Polaris, and are now enabled to commit their crimes against the people of Bob once again. This so called 'Disorder War' is no revolution, what you are seeing is GOONS and Umbrella returning to power. Another nation has drawn my ire through his reactionism, the ruler known as Darkstorm777. It is my understanding that he is a member of the Mostly Harmless Alliance. I would like to make it clear that I have no qualms with the MHA, and I would like to square up with Sir Darkstorm himself. Understandably, should you choose to get involved so be it. The Killuminati Empire hereby declares that a state of war exists between the Killuminati Empire and the Goon Order of Negligence and Sadism. A state of war also exists between the forces of Loki Laufeyson and those of Darkstorm777. The Revolution has begun. Loki Laufeyson, Supreme Regent of the Killuminati Empire (Signed for Emperor Haile Selassie)
Hello my fellow nations, have you ever wanted to make an alliance? Have you ever wanted to run your ideas and own an alliance? But you could not. It is almost impossible to get new alliances to grow due to the monopoly on recruiting bigger alliances have. I mean how can you get people to join you when other alliances have the resources to offer millions in aid! Its just not fair that bigger alliances can offer so much, it destroys almost all chances to make your own alliance rise to power. So i have taken it on my self (and a few other revolutionaries) to revolt against this unfair treatment of small alliances and nation. Big alliances have wrecked countless small nations and alliances by starting world wars. How much longer must smaller alliances suffer from the greed and endless wars caused by bigger alliances! Its time the small alliances of the world joined forces to take down the bigger, more corrupt alliances of the world. We start with RnR, they have been able to out pay countless nations by offering 12 million to new members. So join me! join this great uprising! Help in anyway possible, go to war with RnR, send aid to fighting revolutionaries, or even join a revolting alliance! Stand up for what is right! Take down this corruption, so them what small alliances can do! THE TIME HAS COME TO CUT THE FAT ONES DOWN TO SIZE! For more info on this revolt visit our forms here: http://www.reddit.com/r/TheLCNR/ Update: As of Friday the 14th, we have sent 9 nations into anarchy, see, RnR can be stopped! (My allince is LCNR) To Apropos: My knowledge came partly from an irl friend who has been playing this game for a long time who wanted to start his own alliance but told me how unfair recruitment was. This got me interested in this game. I spent a few weeks reading the wiki and looking over wars, treaties and getting an idea of the political view of this game. Then a week later i got the game myself with a revolution in-mind. As for RnR i have nothing personal against them, its just that when we (LCNR) voted for who to attack first we went for RnR due to there large aid bounces. Also to make this clear i am not asking people to join my alliance (but you are welcome to). I am just trying to rally the people together.
HIM Haile Selassie I Greetings Citzens of Bob, For too long, politics in CN have been stale and boring. I called for a revolution and I was laughed at and called names like "idiot" and "troll". I have been purposefully vague about my "revolution" and how I sought to go about it, and a series of unfortunate events have led me to take a more direct approach. Now, on the authority of Emperor Haile Selassie I, I Ras Loki Laufeyson hereby proclaim the existence of the Killuminati Empire. We have one goal and one goal only: That is the destruction of lulzism and all alliances associated with it. We will support anyone who wants to forment revolution on the great planet of Bob, and we will fight until all of CN is liberated from the shackles of lulzism. I hope this is the spark that will light the fuse, and I believe that this is what CN needs. I am the Supreme Regent of this new alliance, and Haile Selassie is our eternal emperor. I'm not one for page long posts, as those of you who know me know, so take this for what it is. Loki Laufeyson, Supreme Regent of the Killuminati Empire
Within our world, it seems the concept of the Constant Revolution is lost on many. The spurned want to discuss the evils of Pacifican-Past. The uninformed want to bring up the inefficiencies or deficits they think still exist. The propagandists would tell you that the Constant Revolution was merely a way for Pacifican leadership to distort our pseudo-philosophy to whatever they saw fit. In this short entry I will explain the concept, its goals, and its practical applications while dismissing common misconceptions on the idea of: The Constant Revolution Any student of Darwin can explain, at a base level, the theory of evolution: The idea that organisms adapt to their environments based on their circumstance and need. The concept of the Constant Revolution was crafted in the image of the evolution within our natural world. Seeing the advantages that adaptability has within the animal kingdom, it only makes sense to bring that same adaptive quality to an alliance. The Constant Revolution is an idea that advocates for constant reevaluation. A common misconception is that the Concept itself argues for continual change and trial-and-error type scenarios to be used and reused within different context to try and form a more perfect Order. Nothing could be further from the truth. The idea is to constantly reevaluate oneself and the Order, to analyze and identify what can change, what should change, and what will change for the greater good of the alliance. It is not just a systematic concept, but a personal one as well. The first question any ruler might ask themselves before changing their alliance: What they can do to improve themselves and be the change? The common claim is that this Concept allowed Pacifica's leadership to distort our alliance's shape and motivations until it fit with their agenda. While no alliance can claim an entirely pure history, bereft of corruption or its share of mistakes, the Concept itself is not as open to abuse as one might think at first glance. Not only is the idea designed to enable swift change when needed, it was also built purely from a scientific standpoint. The only change that can truly be justified through the concept of the Constant Revolution has to provide empirical evidence supporting the change. We deal purely in the Material. No moral concepts nor emotional states influence the Constant Revolution. It is purely motivated by material facts and empirical data. Nothing more, nothing less. While no ideology is immune from the corruption of man, the Constant Revolution strives to raise itself above unflinching ancient ideologues and become less of a set-in-stone concept and more of a progression towards a more perfect Pacifica. Holton, Voice of the Order
La Marx posted a topic in World Affairs (IC)Below is an essay I have written on the state of our world politics, called 'The Phenomenon of Gerontocracy and the Absence of Politics'. Comments and discussion welcome. La Marx.
Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this blog are solely those of Loki Laufeyson and not those of my alliance, House Baratheon, or any other entity. For the two years I've been a part of the CN community I don't think I've seen this amount of stagnation, degeneracy, and decline. The continued oppression of micros and neutrals at the hands of the upper-crust alliances, the downright hypocrisy that runs rampant in CN politics are all things that drive valuable members of the community away. I sadly admit that I am also guilty of these things, and before I go any further I would like to apologize. The only thing I can ask myself and my fellow players is "how did we let it get this far?" "How did we fall from a prosperous and thriving community, to a dreadful place where trolling and idiocy are the order of the day?" If you ask me, it truly is a shame. CN needs a revolution. Point blank, period. I cannot be more serious. The overthrow of the upper-crust alliances by the underprivileged in CN society, is a necessary action that must be taken. Now I know the same hypocrites who claim to want to bring change to CN, will read this message of revolution and scoff at it. I do not know whether or not it is because they have nothing better to do, or if it is because of the person delivering the message. Regardless, I laugh at each and every one of you (you know who you are) and I think that your type are pathetic. I seriously hope that each and every one of you, especially the micros and neutrals, are able to figure out who your true enemy is and unite before it is too late. Rest assured, a storm is coming to CN. With all the power TPTB have, they will not be able to stop the idea who's time has come. Thank you.
