      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.

...I'm mainly here to enjoy the sight of you and yours repeatedly getting your teeth kicked in...Watching the spiritual heirs of Electron Sponge get introduced to the business end of a jack boot is the best game in town right now.

By all means, please, drag this fight out beyond all reason. Continue to get smashed in the face whenever you get back up again....

 

 

Wow, that really sounds like bad things are happening to us. It's a good thing that you're here to let us know these things. Victory is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose. There is nobody at Polaris who is expressing envy of the aggressors in this conflict; we certainly would not want to be them and are quite content with who we are. And that will not change no matter how many pixels we lose.

Spamming peace mode really takes the sting out of war, doesn't it?

You know, I was issuing forth that last bit of correspondence from my mobile device (busy nation ruler and all). However, I appreciate the humor in the way you caught my gaffe.

 

The rest of it just seems like a "why are you saying things/We don't care about what you say", which rolls right into "Why does anyone say anything", "I don't care you don't care", etc, etc, ad nauseum. So I'll let that be for now.

Could you elaborate on that? I honestly don't know what you mean.

You are free to characterize based upon...what you bring to the table as you see fit. I am saying that Polaris defines neither victory nor defeat based upon pixels. As I said, our evaluations certainly are not based upon any desire to be anything like those who are attacking us. As Starfox had said, "Something people in this game don't realize is that attacking something doesn't make it go away, and it doesn't make it change."

 

At war's end, I and Polaris will be the same. Maybe with fewer pixels, but other things are more important -- and that can never be taken away no matter what anyone does to us.

War/Peace Preference: war.gif War is an option for Golden Empire since 11/8/2013.

 

Why would we need to into peace mode? No, what's taking the sting out of it is that most of the alliances fighting us are barely managing to keep up enough of a declare rate to bother calling it a war. Seriously, I've never been in a war against superior numbers where I've been able to spend this much time sitting in war mode with nobody declaring. I didn't even bother going into peace mode when I was away for a week in the middle of the war.

Congrats on not getting attacked. That's how I felt when you and your friends in TOP dogpiled NSO. I sat in war mode for weeks without getting touched.

All this false bravado tells me that Polaris couldn't be more butthurt if it had a nine-inch, Doombird-engraved dildo stuffed up its ass.

 

Which, incidentally, it does.

That's not very nice, is it? [EDIT: You're a diplomat?]

 

The only thing I feel is embarrassed for you guys. It seems like the ones who are 'frustrated' are those on the other side and their sycophants who keep feeling the need to tell us how badly we have it. Over and over and over again.

 

Which, incidentally, it does.

You know, in the darkness of antiquity, when you were young, people used to use their words during conflicts to make mock of one another, and to advocate for their respective positions.

 

I feel this sense of "I don't understand why you guys are saying things" you keep purveying is snake oil.  Frankly, its abit beneath your stature, and certainly not up to par with your historic reputation for political dialogue. When I argued against you, Kaos, and Vincent in the old days of GW3, you certainly had a more cogent and tangible philosophy and defense of your culture.

 

I'll give you this piece of advice for free; you or someone competent needs to get hold of the narrative, if you can. While words alone cannot always sway wars, there is many a time that the appearance of victory is a victor in truth, and the moral victory (which might have been ceded to you if people didn't have a long memory when it comes to Polaris) is a fundamental part of the total victory.

 

Or don't. For me, it makes  no difference, except in entertainment value.

Hi Helios

 

I know it is a difficult concept to understand, but not everyone shares your view of life, the universe or everything.  I am quite happy fighting forever and ever and ever and at no stage will I be butt-hurt about DBDC.  DBDC are not engaged with us and are now completely irrelevant almost forever to us.  We will of course entertain their toadies for a long time to come, but Cuba et al will find us suspiciously out of range for the foreseeable future.  

 

It always amused me when someone from a bowl smear alliance such as yourself wanders into a conversation and starts posturing about how I must be feeling when what they are really suggesting is how they would feel in the exact same situation.  This is not in fact correct,  Polaris is very happy with its current situation and most happy for it to continue until we are ready to think about discussing the end of it.  In the mean time, we will continue to declare wars against those we truly despise and counter such responses as come our way, choosing to spend our resources how we see fit.

 

If you had the objectivity to rationally view the results of all the wars ever fought on Bob you would find some data right there that would suggest you turn at the wheel will be short lived and that the toadies you call friends will ultimately re-align themselves, divide into competing interests, backstab each other, reform into other alliances, change leadership, delete, merge or continue but in 12 months time the world will not look a hell of a lot like the one we have now.  You however can hang onto the fantasy that #1 I agree with your assertions, #2 my butt-hurt is obvious by the fact that I bother to engage with half tards such as yourself or #3 that I or anyone else gives a rat's fundamental orifice what you think or presume.

In the grim darkness that is the history of Bob? I was never young in your lifetime.

 

You are projecting your own values and assumptions onto us, we are not the same as you, not even a little bit.  We have no desire to ''control the narrative''.  There is no narrative to control, the intelligent discourse you seek would be entirely one-sided if we even bothered.  Your side has devolved the standards of Bob the the point where it is barely recognizable in any shape or form.  Do not scream that we should be doing anything, do not suggest that we are at lack.  You seek something you are incapable of providing yourself.

 

As for entertainment, that is why we are all here.  You gain yours in the current situation, I have had mine countless times.  It is the price to pay for participation, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.  

 

As for your last post, you have never known me, I don't recall a single conversation with you of any note, you have no idea what my agendas were or are or how I derive my continuing interest.  You try to mock me, but you find yourself short of a decent shot every time, the closest you can come is some misjudgement of what I care about.  Try harder or just stop, the time you seek is long past.

The worm really has turned when the likes of you is waxing nostalgic about the days when there were robust conversations and much more interesting characters from diverse backgrounds expressing themselves.

 

Those days are long gone. All I do now is find fellow Polars under attack and fight alongside them. What else is there to do in this post-apocalyptic world?

There is no 'narrative' other than we are being attacked and are fighting back. It doesn't matter what others might think what would constitute a 'moral victory' for Polaris. We have our own standards and do not need anyone else's approval -- certainly not from those who wish us ill.

 

Or don't. For me, it makes  no difference, except in entertainment value.

 

 

As much time and effort you and others are putting into trying to convince us that we're beaten and should quit, it seems that all of this makes some kind of difference to you.

The likes of me? Lord, that almost sounds as though you are inferring something in regards to my character; and not something nice either. That's a hard row to hoe if that was your intent.

 

As to the rest; you're the only game left in town. If there was a more interesting conflict going on, I'd be politicking over there instead.

I've been reading the past few pages of this thread and for a few moments there I thought I was transported in a time machine back to 2007.  Spent parts of an hour trouble shooting a problem with the \m/ forums.  I blame flashbacks.

 

What's the problem here?

Funfact: WFF was originally founded in 2007.

 

In order to bring about our former glory, we have been brainwashing everyone to believe it is 2007 again :awesome:

That's not very nice, is it? [EDIT: You're a diplomat?]

 

The only thing I feel is embarrassed for you guys. It seems like the ones who are 'frustrated' are those on the other side and their sycophants who keep feeling the need to tell us how badly we have it. Over and over and over again.

 

 

* walford checks - I don't see or feel anything, but you're obviously the expert on such matters.

 

I don't play nice. I also don't believe a single letter of anything your alliance has uttered over the last few days about not giving a crap about pixels. It's been said before and it'll be said again but everybody knows it's !@#$%^&*. I'm not entirely sure where you got the idea of me being frustrated from, I'm simply calling you out on account of the sheer amount of !@#$ that's being thrown out there by representatives of Polaris wait I forgot there's a blockage of the thick and long variety up there so you can't reach it. Well you get the point.

 

 

 

Hi Helios

 

I know it is a difficult concept to understand, but not everyone shares your view of life, the universe or everything.  I am quite happy fighting forever and ever and ever and at no stage will I be butt-hurt about DBDC.  DBDC are not engaged with us and are now completely irrelevant almost forever to us.  We will of course entertain their toadies for a long time to come, but Cuba et al will find us suspiciously out of range for the foreseeable future.

 

It always amused me when someone from a bowl smear alliance such as yourself wanders into a conversation and starts posturing about how I must be feeling when what they are really suggesting is how they would feel in the exact same situation.  This is not in fact correct,  Polaris is very happy with its current situation and most happy for it to continue until we are ready to think about discussing the end of it.  In the mean time, we will continue to declare wars against those we truly despise and counter such responses as come our way, choosing to spend our resources how we see fit.

 

If you had the objectivity to rationally view the results of all the wars ever fought on Bob you would find some data right there that would suggest you turn at the wheel will be short lived and that the toadies you call friends will ultimately re-align themselves, divide into competing interests, backstab each other, reform into other alliances, change leadership, delete, merge or continue but in 12 months time the world will not look a hell of a lot like the one we have now.  You however can hang onto the fantasy that #1 I agree with your assertions, #2 my butt-hurt is obvious by the fact that I bother to engage with half tards such as yourself or #3 that I or anyone else gives a rat's fundamental orifice what you think or presume.

 

Hello AlmightyGrub

 

"DBDC are not engaged with us and are now completely irrelevant almost forever to us". Did you say that with a straight face? Yeah, I couldn't either. I also don't think Polaris being out of range of Doombirds to be suspicious at all, it's obvious what you're trying to do there and I don't think it'll work either; it'll be tougher to market yourselves as the "premier permanently low-tier blue-team alliance", am I right? Might wanna throw in a "seriously guys, don't grow above 90k NS kay?" with those recruitment messages. And what of your allies? Going to subject them to the same treatment?

 

All the posturing at the moment is coming from you and yours, nobody else. I'm amazed at how warped you people are with this "behold my commitment" crap to the point that you express yourself as being very happy with getting kicked in the teeth. Fortunately I know better, so I know it's crap. I also observed many public expressions by Polaris at the outset of this war and boy did they sound everything but happy.

 

Yes the world and the people in it will change. AlmightySherlock should be your new name if you ever opt to change it.

 

 

You don't have to project how easily offended you are onto everyone, Agent Blue.

 

Go back to cooking your meth in the corner quietly young man.

Since when has this become a thread about MHA?
