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.

The new seasons sucked (comparatively). We're not going to make that mistake. Enjoy your reruns. "I'm Afraid I Just Blue Myself - The Are You My Cousin? Accords" A Bob Loblaw Treaty Now the story of two wealthy alliances that have everything, and the one piece of paper which has no purpose but to keep them all together. Article I - No Touching Both parties agree that no touching is to occur between nations. Wars and other means of conflict are to be avoided at all cost between the two undersigned alliances. No touching! No touching! No touching! Article II - That's Why You Always Leave a Note Notes are a vital way to ensure communications between friends, and to make sure all limbs remain intact. Both parties agree to assist the other in parenting issues which may include but are not limited to incidents involving foods, cars, and boats. Article III - Sister Is My New Mother, Mother And is it me or is she looking hotter? Friendship and two way communication are vital to each party. Both alliances agree to be friendly and cordial and to resolve any potential disputes via private communications. Article IV - AHHHHHHHHHH GENE!!! Isn't he the best? Or is he just an idiot with balloons? When information worthy of being passed onto Gene Parmesan is discovered by either alliance, it becomes an obligation to pass on said information to the other alliance. GENE PARMESAN!!! Article V - There Is Always Money in the Banana Stand Both parties agree that burning down the Banana Stand is to be forbidden. Economic assistance and cooperation is encouraged to foster greater relations. We really can't make this more clear. Article VI - I Don't Understand The Question And I Won't Respond Whether or not it is a plate or platter is irrelevant. Both alliances agree to not explain this treaty to anyone. Article VII - Watch Out For Loose Seals! Swimming is dangerous. In the event of finding Lucille, Lucille Too, a Loose Seal, or any other dangerous encounter, either alliance can request the assistance of the other party. Fulfilling the request is not entirely optional - but neither is family. Just don't become a monster! Article VIII - Take To The Sea! Upon realizing the wise counsel of Barry Zuckerkorn, all future meeting shall be held in international waters. Should potential aggressive actions be discussed at these sea-born meetings, either party can opt to join in on the fun. It is international waters after all. Article IX - I've Made A Huge Mistake I've made a huge mistake. Maybe even the biggest little mistake I've ever made. Or even a huge tiny mistake. I don’t want no part of each other's tight-ass country-club. Say goodbye to these! Article X - Army Had A Half Day, Mother Mom signed me up for the army, just because the fat man dared her to. Should this treaty be dissolved, there will be a 72 hour additional Non-Aggression Pact added to the treaty in order to binge watch Arrested Development again, and to collect all of our medals. Article XI - The Man Inside Me Even if it means me taking a chubby, I will suck it up! Nothing wrong with that. I've been in the film business for a while but I just can't seem to get one in the can. I wouldn't mind kissing that man between the cheeks. Well, Michael, you really are quite the Cupid, aren’t you? I tell you, you can sink your arrow into my buttocks any time.

The Even More Insane Shared Insanity Pact, Now With 20% More Insanity Preamble This treaty is not only signed to seek mutual defense, but rather to amplify a stronger connection with one another so that both signatories may reach a stronger future together. Sovereignty Both signatories shall retain their own individual sovereignty and will not take any steps, directly or indirectly, that would threaten the sovereignty of the other signatory at any point in time. Peace and Non-Aggression In the spirit of mutual cooperation and alignment, signatories and their respective members will not engage in hostile actions against each other, including: Declare war on any member nation of the other alliance, provide aid (military, economic or intelligence) to an enemy of signatory alliances, or commit acts of espionage against the other. In the event a nation of either signatory attacks a nation of the other, both signatories pledge that diplomacy will be the end-be-all route. Signatories also agree not to sanction members of the other signatory unless agreed otherwise. Intelligence By ratifying this treaty, the signatories agree that if they acquire information that stipulates a form of danger to another signatory, they shall share such information, with due haste, with the government of the signatory, in a private and discrete manner. The only exception to this is if the disclosure of said information would violate a surrender agreement. Signatories also agree to keep the other signatory informed (preferably in the aforementioned private and discrete manner) of any current and potentially upcoming wars against either single nations or alliances. Furthermore, signatories agree to keep such information private and lessen the chance that potential enemies may be forewarned. Aid Should the need arise, a signatory may request financial or political assistance of the other signatory. By ratifying this treaty, the signatories agree that they are expected, but not obligated to fulfill such a request, providing a good reason for the request is given. Mutual Defense By ratifying this treaty, the signatories agree that an attack on one is an attack on the other and shall therefore be met with the combined might of both signatories. This article is deemed optional if a signatory chooses to waive the obligation, a signatory is in an aggressive war or is brought into war by an outside treaty, or if such an action would violate another treaty or surrender agreement. Optional Aggression By ratifying this treaty, the signatories agree that they may request the assistance of the other signatory with any aggressive military action taken. Providing a good reason for the request is given, the signatory is expected to fulfill the request, but not obligated to do so. Termination If either signatory wishes to withdraw from this treaty for any reason, they must inform the other signatory seventy-two hours in advance, whereby the treaty shall still remain active until the closure of aforementioned period.

Both the alliances have decided to put this long cherished friendship on paper in and form of this treaty. Argent and the Global Protection Force hereby commit to uphold the following principles of non-aggression, respect, and defense outlined in this Optional Defense and Optional Aggression Pact. [b]I. Friendship[/b] The signatory alliances and their members will treat each other with as much respect. Before starting any conversation, Argent shall offer a brick of silver while the GPF must offer the sexual services of its whores. Signatories will show tact and consideration when addressing any grievances, namely by making full use of proper diplomatic channels. [b]II. Non-Aggression[/b] No member nation of either alliance will declare war on any member nation of the other, provide aid; which includes military, money, technology, knowledge and sexual AIIDS; to enemies of the other, or commit acts of espionage against the other. [b]III. Optional Defense[/b] In the signing of this pact, both sides agree to defend and aid one another in times of war when requested by the other signatory alliance. Should either of the signatory alliances be attacked by another power, the other is encouraged to come to to its assistance with its full strength and resources. However, providing assistance is not obligatory and the signatories may decide to refrain from assisting upon its own discretion. To request assistance in a time of war, the alliance which is in need must first send a request (with a bloc of silver/contingent of whores)to the other signatory. That alliance shall convey its decision within 48 hours of the request. [b]IV. Optional Aggression[/b] In the event that one Party requires assistance in an aggressive war against a Non-Signatory Alliance, both Parties are encouraged but not obligated to assist the other by means of political, financial, and military aid. This treaty provides both signatories with full legal justification to enter a conflict that concerns the other, if they so choose. [b]VI. Cancellation[/b] If either signatory alliance feels that this treaty has lost its relevance, they have the right to cancel the treaty by the express will of their respective decision making bodies. Notification of cancellation must be given to the other signatory within forty-eight hours (along with 100K Blocks of Silver/ A whore contingent lead by the Secretary General or his Wife). Should this treaty be revoked by either alliance, a twenty-four hour grace period begins in which neither alliance may declare war on the other, after which no such rules will apply.

A lone penguin wandering in the desert and a lone cactus growing within the tundra. What would happen if these two lost souls met one another? What would happen if they were to band together? This is the story of their friendship.[/center] [center][img]http://i.imgur.com/lHEKT.gif[/img][/center] The desert is a harsh place, a land where water is a scarce resource. The tundra is a harsh place, a land where endless frost covers the land. Thus the penguin and cactus decided it would be better for them to work together. The cactus will teach the penguin how to find water in the desert, while the penguin will teach the cactus how to survive the permafrost. They agreed to share each others resources, both information on how to survive the harsh environments and materials to assist them in hard times. [center][img]http://i.imgur.com/YZ6RE.gif[/img][/center] The predators in these harsh lands were everywhere. Waiting to rip open the cactus for its water and feast on the flesh of the penguin for its nutrients. Thus the two began to work to improve each others safety. When the penguin was being attacked and called for help, the cactus used its ten thousand needles to attack the foolish predators who circled for its meat. When the cactus was being attacked and called for help, the penguin fought away its attackers with its powerful beak and body. The two had also agreed that should such an attack stem from getting involved in another's hunt, they would be free to choose if they wanted to intervene or not. [center][img]http://i.imgur.com/XgJ4S.gif[/img][/center] Within such harsh lands, sometimes it is necessary to partake in a hunt. The penguin and cactus agreed that should the reason be sound, they would consider joining forces on such a expedition. [center][img]http://i.imgur.com/rXb9D.png[/img][/center] Many creatures of the world form packs to help increase their survival. The two recognized this and agreed that while it was not necessary, they retained the option to assist the others pack mates should any of them come under attack or need help in some way. [center][img]http://i.imgur.com/0pJwE.png[/img][/center] The world is ever changing. The cactus and the penguin had each seen many they traveled with come and go over the years. They recognize that such a thing may even eventually happen to them. In case of such an event the two agreed to give each other two days notice for they may prepare for their solo journey. They also agreed to give each other three additional days of complete non-interaction where they would go their separate ways in peace. [center][img]http://i.imgur.com/3WJmA.gif[/img][/center] ...and so it came to pass that the penguin grew into a mighty bird and the cactus grew powerful legs and arms. With their new found abilities they agreed to chronicle their story for the world may see their bond.

Accords II: Arkham City Rises[/size][/center] Preamble [center][i]Ladies and Gentlemen, Hobos and Tramps, Cross-eyed mosquitoes and bowlegged ants. I come before you, to stand behind you, to tell you a story I know nothing about. One bright morning in the middle of the night two dead fellows stood up to fight. They stood back to back, facing each other, drew their swords and shot one another. If you don't believe my lie, it's true, ask the blind lady on the corner, she saw it too.[/i][/center] This treaty is not only signed to seek mutual defense, but rather to amplify a stronger connection with one another so that both signatories may reach a stronger future together. Article Nightwing [center][i]Look my rude friend, we can't have people cursing each other on the freeway, its simply not polite.[/i][/center] In the spirit of mutual cooperation and alignment, signatories and their respective members will not engage in hostile actions against each other, including but not limited to: Declaring war on any member nation of the other alliance, providing aid (military, economic or intelligence) to an enemy of signatory alliances, or committing acts of espionage against the other. In the event a nation of either signatory attacks a nation of the other, both signatories pledge that diplomacy will be the end-be-all route. Signatories also agree not to sanction members of the other signatory unless agreed otherwise. The signatories shall each endeavor to avoid placing the other in a situation in which this treaty shall come into conflict with any other current or future treaty signed by that signatory. Both signatories shall retain their own individual sovereignty and will not take any steps, directly or indirectly, that would threaten the sovereignty of the other signatory at any point in time. The signatories also agree that much of this treaty is probably overly complex and will work to follow the spirit of the treaty rather than getting hung up too much on the exact wording. Article Oracle [center][i]Plans, plans, plans. They always have their plans. But the problem with their plan, is that when you take an insane person to the asylum, you're just taking him home - the very place he knows best.[/i][/center] By ratifying this treaty, the signatories agree that if they acquire information that stipulates a form of danger to another signatory, they shall share such information, with due haste, with the government of the signatory, in a private and discrete manner. Article Gordon [center][i]Introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos, I’m an agent of chaos , and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair.[/i][/center] Should the need arise, a signatory may request financial or political assistance of the other signatory. By ratifying this treaty, the signatories agree that they are expected to fulfill such a request, providing a good reason for the request is given. Article Batman [center][i]Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moon light?[/i][/center] By ratifying this treaty, the signatories agree that an attack on one is an attack on the other and shall therefore be met with the combined might of both signatories. In such an event the signatories agree to commit all their resources to the defense of the other, allocating them in the manner deemed most effective for overall defense of the defending signatory. This article is deemed optional if a signatory chooses to waive the obligation, a signatory is in an aggressive war or is brought into war by an outside treaty, or if such an action would violate another treaty. For the purposes of this document, it shall be taken as a given that the primary objective of defense is to impede the effectiveness of military actions taken by a third party to the detriment of one of the undersigned. It is recognized that the ultimate effectiveness of such actions is frequently determined by the success or failure of military actions taken by associated parties not directly engaged with the undersigned. For the purposes of this document, a military actor will be considered an associated party if their actions fall within the bounds of a Chain of Support, outlined as follows: (1) If A supports B, and B supports C, then A supports C and (2) if C is supported by B, and B is supported by A then C is supported by A where support is defined as taking military action to the benefit of the other party. (3) Longer chains can be simplified such that if A supports B, and B supports C, and C supports X, then A supports C, and C supports X, then A supports X. (4) A military actor becomes an associated party to anyone they support or are supported by. It is recognized that there are conditions under which the most effective use of resources for providing for the defense of one of the undersigned may be to allocate them against an associated party rather than a direct aggressor, that sub-optimal use of resources may result in a token defense which does not properly provide adequate support and that such token support undermines the base purpose of defensive treaties. Article Joker [center][i]In my dream, the world had suffered a terrible disaster. A black haze shut out the sun, and the darkness was alive with the moans and screams of wounded people. Suddenly, a small light glowed. A candle flickered into life, symbol of hope for millions. A single tiny candle, shining in the ugly dark. I laughed and blew it out.[/i][/center] By ratifying this treaty, the signatories agree that they may request the assistance of the other signatory with any aggressive military action taken. Providing a good reason for the request is given, the signatory is expected to fulfill the request, but not obligated to do so. Postamble [center][i]Parting is such sweet sorrow, dearest. Still, you can't say we didn't show you a good time. Enjoy yourself out there... in the asylum. Just don't forget -- if it ever gets too tough... there's always a place for you here.[/i][/center] In the event that one signatory wishes to withdraw from the treaty, they must give forty-eight hours notice of intent to withdraw to the other signatory. Notification will also be followed by a seventy-hour period of mandatory non-aggression. The obligations outlined in this article may be waived with the consent of both parties.

While they were chowing down on Emperor Oinks private reserve, they got to talking and the following agreement was written down on a slightly used napkin. [b]Article I: "Give grease a chance"[/b] Internationally renowned bacon lover John Lennon, said it best with his hit lyric. "All we are saying…, is give grease a chance!" In that spirit RIA and BACoN agree to a peaceful coexistence as friends and allies. [b]Article II: "Loose lips sink ships, but are great for enjoying bacon."[/b] If either signatory catches wind of intelligence that affects the other signatory, they should share it over a plate of bacon and cool glass of cactus juice. [b]Article III: "Break open the Piggy Bank."[/b] Both signatories are encouraged to aid each other in times of need if possible. Piggy banks are made to be broken! [b]D: Florida: "If you can't stand the heat; Stay out of the kitchen!"[/b] While bacon is delicious and cacti a prize to behold, it should be noted by any would be aggressors that an attack on one is an attack on the other. In that case either alliance is required to come to the defense of the other. [b]Article V: "Becoming Vegetarian".[/b] Should either side get a hippy girl friend that won't let them eat meat they are required to give 42.5 hours notice to the other party. /s/ for the Blatantly Awesome Coalition of Nations, ~Kpcurley - Emperor Oink: The Divine Swine for the Random Insanity Alliance, ~Shadow, Triumvir of Random Insanity, The Ultimate Lifeform, Mystic Dragon Emperor of the Cheeselands, Puppetmaster of Chaos ~Delta1212, Triumvir of the Random Insanity Alliance, Demi-God of Maroon, Psychic Cupcake Overlord of the Cupcakery, Eperor of the Superfriends ~Thunder Strike, Triumvir of Stuff and Hater of Cats ~Ogaden, Slave to pork, Head of Recruitment ~C-zom, H.o.M.O.
