      Cyber Nations Forum Rules   07/03/2016

        Cyber Nations Forum Rules  
      In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
      The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc.   Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator.   A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules.   1.) First Warning
      2.) Second Warning
      3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
      4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
      5.) Permanent Ban   Game Bans and Forum Bans
      If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion.   If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums.   Process of Appeals
      Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game.   Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum.   Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation.   The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise.   Posting
      All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however.   Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have...   A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
      Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
      Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area.   Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
      Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning.   Topic Hijacking
      Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning.   Repeat Topics
      One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise.   Joke Topics
      Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic.   Spam
      Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags.   Posting in All Caps
      Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key.   No Discussion Forums
      There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense.   Moderation Forums
      All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine.   Namecalling
      Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums.   Filtered Words
      Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word.   If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene.   Harassment
      Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning.   Gravedigging
      Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this.   The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread.   Signatures
      Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning.   You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line.   Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
      Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright.   Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted.   Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited.   Drug References
      Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof.   Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
      Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities.   OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
      An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense.   Death Threats / Death Wishes
      A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff.   Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
      Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited.   Forum Names
      With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive.   Multiple Forum Accounts
      With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis.   Posting For Other Players
      Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf.   Imitation &. Impersonation
      Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts.   A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice.   Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions.   Avatars
      Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission.   Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
      The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums.   Moderation Staff
      The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban.   Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning.   Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah.   Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited.   Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked.   Aiding Rule Violators
      Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted.   Aiding Banned Players
      Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff.   Questionable Actions and Content
      The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time.   Private Transactions
      Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game.   Advertising
      Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so.   Extorting Donations
      Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned.   Third Party Software
      Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased.   Other Forum Terms & Rules   Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

An Ordo Paradoxia Announcement

Recommended Posts

So, by this logic, Alliances with the highest ANS will always have a down-declare.

Through a lot of hard work and committment, OP has a very solid core of strong builders and smart players. Admittedly, having a higher ANS does make it difficult to find wars sometimes that aren't blatant down declares.

However, it's not practical to expect any of the AA's with the highest ANS to just hit each other. We've had more than our fair share of wars with TPC, PS, LE and the numerous incarnations or G6 over the rounds and surely will have more.

I suppose everyone would love to see the strongest AA's 'go kamikaze' every single war in some sort of repeated self-implosion. There's a time and a place for that, and we've done it many times and will do it again.

Nobody in this thread (from OP anyway) is claiming this to be a grand up-declare. It is good practice fighting wars on numerous fronts and other stats besides ANS weren't terribly askew. If RnR and AAA were better prepared, thing would be looking drastically different at this point.

I don't feel that AA's should get a free pass if they are new or unprepared. If anything I sincerely hope this to be a learning experience. I firmly believe that all AA's should strive to be 'elite' (as some say). The bar needs be raised, not lowered.

The intention at this point is NOT to pound RnR and AAA into the dirt. No gov from either AA has reached out in an attempt to negotiate peace at this point - we are more than willing.

Great DoW, but an embarassing choice of opponents.
Really, Hal - you are an elite alliance (according to your skills), but you've chosen two inexperienced AAs with a half of your ANS.
It's not like you didn't have a choice.

It's sad..it's not the way to keep the newcomers in TE as well. What kind of introduction into TE is this? You teach them, that a curbstomping is OK? I hope you have just sincerely erred, Hal. You still have a good reputation around here as a person, not like some of your professional trolls.
Darth is absolutely right. We've been trying to support this game - look at the numbers.

I recall curbstomps like that (by the newcomers) were countered with the punishing expeditions. Remember that? You were one of the participants.
What you are doing now is much more deplorable - because you are no noobs.

With DoWs like that maybe this @#$%^&ing game deserves to die. It's digusting.

I'm not going to argue with hypocrits, whatever they'll say here. Empty words indeed...

I feel so well defended verbally right now I am not going to say anything.

OP was ready to throw down, RnR was still getting organized. Defcon 5 and cherry pie...

But now, we are a sorry bunch.

Then what is this white peace Message doing in my inbox?

:)

And "To be fair" I think we were a pretty soft target. OP realized that in order to slingshot themselves ahead of the pack killing and feeding on the brains of innocents was a good ploy, so the plied it.

He's calling attention to OP's ANS being nearly double that of RnR+AAA. It's pretty easy to single-handedly blitz three nations at half one's own strength, so one could attack a total number of nations triple the count of one's own alliance, and still have it be a down-declare.

But then, beatdowns are the new normal. All that talk last round about how to not drive new nations and AAs out of the game seems to have just been empty talk. Expected/10.

Hehehehe. I was just thinking to myself a one round retirement looks pretty sweet what with my guts hanging out all over the place.

But then I realized TE doesn't matter.

Hal. ANS and nukes are the biggest deciding factors in war. Then there is activity/update activity etc. Total NS and Total nations are rather insignificant.

The numbers:

ANS
RnR+AAA 3780
OP 6293

Nukes
RnR+AAA 2
OP 18

If those numbers are correct then there is no point even debating down declare or not. Its so one sided, its a joke.

I have been playing Cybernations for exactly 92 days. I haven't really been on the OWF much because I know that my opinions are liable to get my alliance in hot water. But in TE I can say anything I want about anyone I want, so Its kinda nice.

Also, I feel like the politics of the game kinda come naturally for some reason. Lots of experience with other strategy games, just never played one where I hugged pixels :P

My advice is to get a more organized gov structure and not rely upon allies in TE.[/quote]


Finally had enough eh?

:ehm:

Major AA channels for TE are #tpc-te, #re-te, #paradoxte, #sunte, #warriorste, #porkshrimp


If I missed any I apologize in advance as those are the ones I usually haunt. Fell free to stop by and I am sure people can help you.

I'm sad Paul, #synergyte isn't on there, but PS is? They aren't even here this round either! (Unless I missed their AA)

I have been sitting back watching the selective outrage by a select few but I just find I can’t sit back in silence anymore.

These select few are crying about a massive downdeclare based on the raw ANS data, all the while disregarding the other raw data and underlying situations.

The raw data posted earlier correctly showed the nation counts, NS, ANS, etc. What was not seen in the cursory review by these select few was that fact that about 20 RnR/AAA nations were either inactive, out of range or in Anarchy and OP did not attack these nations. If these nations were removed from the raw data, the ANS difference would have been about 8% and the nation count was still about a 35% advantage for RnR/AAA. And when these nations were removed, the tiers were nearly the same since most of the inactives/out of range nations were in the bottom tiers. Their remaining nations, those attacked by OP, were matched nearly equally tier for tier.

To put it another way, if OP had an additional 20 nations that were inactive and/or out of range with very low NS, the raw data would showed a massive advantage for RnR/AAA in nation count and an about equal pairing in NS and ANS.

OP only attacked nations that were active and in range (obviously). This is clear by the Anarchy count (about 34 anarchies out of 54 nations). The “real” data, when looked at with unbiased eyes, showed this to be what it was, a match up of near equals in NS and ANS and a nation count advantage for RnR/AAA.

As others have pointed out, we had no idea of the WC’s or skills of their remaining 34-35 nations. We knew that AAA has been in TE for a couple of rounds and that RnR were supposed to be experienced SE players.

Fact remains that a select few will always look at (or ignore) data to support their selective outrage, especially when OP is involved.

I hope that clears up some things.

Carry on. :)

I bolded the part of this that is totally false. We aren't !@#$%*ing about it anymore, as a matter of fact it has been a good lesson. But I must say a few things about the post you just made.

Firstly, " RnR were supposed to be experienced SE players."

We are, but there are a total of maybe 10 (that is a very big maybe) nations that are in RnR SE. I simply went on a massive recruitment drive the first few days of the round and got as many members as possible, most of whom have yet to respond to my first alliance wide message.

We weren't equally matched. The nations attacking me had 10 times as many soldiers, were nuclear capable and were in the high tech ranges. I feel like this post is trying to save some kind of dignity, but it is redundant. No-one in R&R is mad at the down-declare, but to try to beautify your actions is demeaning.

:lol1: :lol1: :lol1:

Listen amigo, I have no problem with learning this lesson the hard way, but you don't need to make such long posts trying to defend your honor because the truth is self-evident.

I respect OP very much, especially the guys that are open about the nature of this war (Which has ended btw). Feel free to continue discussion, but please don't try to say we were equally matched opponents okay? Our highest nation had half the NS of your highest nation. Our in actives are dead weight and we are simply shell shocked.

Long live OP, RnR and NDO (The three alliances with an unspoken commitment to peace in the beginning of the round... haha) I should have gotten it in writing ;)

As this war wraps up, I need to publicly acknowledge Wasso of Burger King from RnR.

Despite being thumped pretty hard in the blitz and being financially strapped throughout the war, he never gave up and continued fighting to the very last day.

He could have turtled but didn't. His efforts took infra from Ocmax, Cowboytx and myself. He bought back what he could and fought with it and I respect that.

Therefore - I send out a big 'atta-boy'. You are an attribute to your alliance.

RnR did contact us about this at the beginning of the round. It wasn't anything about peace but something about working together to dominate the world. The reponse given was the standard 'OP doesn't do treaties.' I don't see how this was a stab in the back in any capacity. I did find the blood and guts dramatic descriptions of betrayal comical though.

Yes, hail to Wasso.

You helped to make me the biggest Casualty count in OP. As I suspect you are in RnR.

Well done.

I expect you will be a force in TE if you stick with it.


:awesome:

As I stated before, all the proof was shown when KC posted the stats. Muffle them all you want, it was still a horrible down declare. The more you post this nonsense, the more of an idiot you are proving to be and more importantly, a hypocrite.

As for the bolded section, do you remember who tried flying this line a few rounds ago? Back when Synergy and RE declared on OP/PS citing one of the reasons on the DoW as "OP and PS are both some of the best fighters in TE" and that was totally ripped apart and ignored. I mean of course, unless everyone wants this to become a factor in deciding good DoW's then, of course I would be fine with this, however that's not the case at all. You cannot assume anything of the person other then the stats presented before and this idea has been shot down and down again.

It's becoming more clear with each of your posts that you have nothing but selective outrage and unfortunately, immature language choices.

Darth, chill, dude. Get a grip. :)
