      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.

As this qualifies as an emergency situation, I think it would be fair to put this to a vote among the RIA membership. I've been in two similar situations that could be considered a constitutional crisis in the past, and let the membership vote on it. If the majority vote to fight for Maroon, then you have a clear mandate.

I don't think that 11 years of maintaining the same sphere is worth giving up because some pricks decide they want to try to force us off personally, I can't imagine your alliance would respond any differently were the roles reversed.(not that they would be of course, since none of our alliances believe in forcing people off spheres or punitive actions against our opponents.)

Ah, went back a square. I never intended to imply that you or yours would find amending your charter and leaving the sphere as a fair or good option. I only want to implore that you do, in fact, have options and choices, and that TMD has made clear those choices which lead to peace. No one is forcing continuation of this war upon you, no one is demanding members to delete or leave any alliance. You are choosing to remain at war and risk member deletion because the alternative choices, to you, are worse than that; that choice is of your own volition.

 

To hurry along this discussion and prevent us going in circles: the appropriate conclusion is to reassert NG and friends are being pricks (I prefer the phrase, "playing the bad guys"), and accept you are making choices here that make a stand for your values but do prolong the war. With that resolution, no argument can be made against you.

If you actually wished to play the bad guys and not simply play destructively, you'd do something like Bipolar, not curbstomp the same alliances every six months for the past 4 years.

The precedent set by Polar v NADC would hint at 'no'. Mostly because lolno, but also because 50mil should be no more than a drop in the bucket for anyone who has a PL wonder.

We're talking about you and me here. In this scenario, we're the bad guys by virtue of the fact that what we are doing isn't very nice, and it is, in fact, destructive. In your proposed scenario of betrayal and deceit, we'd be the bad guys to our friends, but in your eyes, we'd be doing the "right thing" and be the "good guys". Makes for an interesting sort of contradiction in your post.

Little Rat, I would vote to stay.  I have a few billion dollars to burn, and NoR is such a soft target I almost believe I could dismantle them by myself.  

We have no crisis.  Just a dead world, and with it the death of moral pretense and what made politics tick.  NG wanted a war, made up the thinnest of excuses, gathered up a few really pathetic maroon "allies," and marched to war.  And I.... don't really care, except now I finally get to fight.  And I get to burn NoR.  And I get to have a little more fun before the plug is pulled on this plane.

The world, now, consists of a largely invincible group of alliances, going around and smashing everyone else, one at a time.  RIA knew it was next on the chopping block, right at the point that our "best friend" Polaris stabbed us in the back to suck off Oculus.  This war isn't about maroon, lol.  It's about the next batch of alliances to be removed.

The only true repeats were Sparta, NADC, and Invicta and the latter two came in of their own volition.  TTK,CRAP, Legion, Old Guard, KoRT, Alpha Wolves and RIA all hadn't fought in global wars for over 2 years.

To all the people saying the world is dead; I say it's only as dead as you make it. You have the option to peel off and make new AAs and make the politics go again. 

 

These bigger, older AAs complaining about a dead world...it's your own fault.

Do you have any evidence to back this up? Additionally there are quite a few alliances filled with communists you're allied to, when can we expect your attacks against them?

I don't think that choosing to avoid allying those who wish us harm is really considered apathy, nor do I feel that openly wishing to destroy communities in this world is a goal anyone should be aspiring to, I find it incredibly odd that NoR of all alliances would be supportive of such a goal.

 

I can't believe you'd even ask these pointless questions. They are the base actions of a desperate man trying cling to the side of a bowl while the rest of his turd of an alliance is goind down the drain. 

 

The questions you ought to be asking are as follows.

 

1) How high is the wall going to be?

2) If we mass execute all the pedophiles will we be lighter terms?

3) How much are we going to have to pay for the wall? (protip: It ain't gonna be cheap)

 

Any communist allied to NG is a good commie, the rest are travelers and scum.

This man gets it. Either get someone to break Occulus internally, play nice, or prepare to get chopped. At this point I just want to see the world burn.

Thing is, I'd still consider you the bad guys in that situation, just hold a hell of a lot more respect for you actually having some balls and actually taking a genuine risk, something that has not happened in this game for quite some time. There's so much potential left in this world, and unlike many, I believe this world is worth continuing rather than slowly destroying it while focusing upon another one.

Oculus curbstomps != global war, as much as you'd like to portray them as such, I can't imagine more than half of your alliances are even capable of fighting more than a round or two before there are no targets left in range.

Might want to talk to your gov about cancelling that NPO treaty then, they vetoed a much more interesting war that would have had a lot more even sides.

I'll actually reply to this, HoT's statement is the sentiment of the alliance, we can all simply log in every 2 weeks at 1k ns and still maintain control of the senate forever, since warchests and statistics are quite literally meaningless to the senate.

not to mention keeping any alliance at war for more than 2-3 months is incredibly harmful to player retention for those on the losing end, you know all of this of course, but at least you're attempting to feign ignorance as to what you are doing rather than openly admit the intended goal as Caustic has.

 

Not for nothing, but months of a beatdown is what keeps me around.

Call me old fashioned, I liked back when the side doing the curbstomp could simply admit they won and shake hands after 2 or 3 rounds, it led to a much quicker war cycle, more wars overall with less length would be a wonderful change of pace, and actually test alliance's activity levels.

Bruh I'm the former MI6 guy, no one listens to my ranting from the corner. NG promised me enough war to destroy what's left of my nation before I leave this godforsaken world of snakes and cowards. That's enough for me.

That's boring. Rebuilding is what puts life back into the world. It gives you something to do. You have to actually think and not just pay your bills. You also get to click on more things.

 

Invicta is always accepting of a curbstomp. It's who we are. Everything can be replaced. Pixels are just that.

Is the most recent example I can think of, plenty more I could find within the past 3 years, just because you're curb stomping doesn't mean you have to be punitive about it, logically it makes sense to want your enemy to survive, then you can do it again in a few months or become buds and roll someone else.

I'm overjoyed wrecking NG nations. It's just a shame that Buscemi is such a pussy and hit PM and bought of range. He's always been an infra hugger, was really hoping to get a piece of him this time.

The only true repeats were Sparta, NADC, and Invicta and the latter two came in of their own volition.  TTK,CRAP, Legion, Old Guard, KoRT, Alpha Wolves and RIA all hadn't fought in global wars for over 2 years.

 

I really hate democracy.

I have a few billion dollars to burn, and NoR is such a soft target I almost believe I could dismantle them by myself. 

 

Strong words from someone who, in their whole three wars with NoR, has lost more than they've destroyed.

Might want to talk to your gov about cancelling that NPO treaty then, they vetoed a much more interesting war that would have had a lot more even sides.

 

 

 

Can we get some deets on this?  Sounds interesting :D

If they'd made this thread a mere few days ago, they'd've seen NoR, NG and TLR.

I'm not sure if you are talking about the senators or the current election rankings, TLR did indeed have their guy in the top 5 a few days ago, but he wasn't a senator, the current rankings do not show the current senators, but rather who the senators will be next term if no one else voted.

 

(Apologies if you understand this an I misinterpreted your point, but it does seem to be a somewhat common misconception.)

 I only want to implore that you do, in fact, have options and choices, and that TMD has made clear those choices which lead to peace. No one is forcing continuation of this war upon you, no one is demanding members to delete or leave any alliance. You are choosing to remain at war and risk member deletion because the alternative choices, to you, are worse than that; that choice is of your own volition.

 

To hurry along this discussion and prevent us going in circles: the appropriate conclusion is to reassert NG and friends are being pricks (I prefer the phrase, "playing the bad guys"), and accept you are making choices here that make a stand for your values but do prolong the war. With that resolution, no argument can be made against you.

I feel that there is a fundamentally flawed assumption here; that activity and member retention would not be drastically harmed if we were to surrender and accept your terms, which it would be. Claiming that it is our decision belies the fact that our alliances (and by extension our entire world) would suffer harm (in the form of losing members) regardless of our decisions, the only difference is, if we fight for as long as possible we lose the guys who don't like war/are sitting in PM and get bored/can't fight and are just getting curbstomped/noobs who aren't used to or prepared for a long tough war, if we surrender and give in to your demands we lose many of those who have fought long and hard for us, who have been a part of TTK and active members for, in some cases called this alliance home for as much as 10 years, who would likely lose the desire to go on if their gov were to accept such a term on their behalf (assuming myself and Merick were personally inclined to accept them, which we are not). So why would we make such a decision?

 

So no, it is not as a result of our decisions that communities are harmed, it is as a result of yours.
