      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.

From Marscury and Utica:

Two large towers are going up in the cities of Marscury and Utica. After letting Mietonka have the Mietonka Tower, the tallest building in the country, the two cities have decided to even the heights. Both buildings are designed to be 1,000 feet high, the same hight as the Mietonka Tower, as a show of equality throughout the country.

ids01.jpg

The Marscury Tower is the new tallest building in Marscury. The vast majority of the building's 90 floors will be used for city and national government offices.

From Mietonka and Utica:

Port upgrades begin today. With both international ports only 15% full due to their closures to prevent the entrance of avian flu, heads of both port authorities decided that it would be a perfect time to perform upgrades and crucial maintenance.

At Utica, maintenance is being performed on the seawall, as well as the cranes and other port machinery. The sea wall is also having the coastal artillery replaced, and newer, more powerful radar and radio equipment is being installed to better keep track of ships entering and exiting the port.

At Mietonka, the ugrades are on a much larger scale. The port is nearly doubling in size, adding an oil terminal, harbor patrol HQ, a cruise sip terminal and expanded facilities for Shif Shipping, the national freight company. The seawall is also having its coastal defenses upgraded, along with its radar and radio transmitters.

The "King Cobra" weapons system was installed on the seawalls of both ports. This advanced system features 6 missile tubes, and two 100mm cannons. Anti-air and anti-personel versions have also been installed, with 6 barreled 30mm gattling guns replacing the 100mm cannons. Five of each type were placed on the walls for the port of Utica, while 6 of each type were placed at Mietonka.

From Marscury:

Financial Crisis Over!

The treasury has reported that taxes are once again overtaking spending and debts. The Kaisermelech has not stated if he would lower taxes or not, but it seems unlikely. The extra money will be used to improve infrastructure, as per the East-West integration plan, and to increase knowledge in the empire.

From Marscury:

The Kaisermelech has ordered that all 20,000 active troops and reserves report to their bases immediately. The country is not going to war, but the troops have been called to assist with any ecological disasters that may arise due to the constant barrage of nuclear missiles. However, top Marscurian climatologists say that the empire will be mainly untouched by radioactive debris, due to the Winterly receeding monsoonal winds. The winds blow from the mountains in the Northeast, to the ocean in the West. This will carry nuclear particles away from the Indian subcontinent, and deposit them across the Arabian Sea.

From the City of Wonder:

Today, the final stretch of track was laid, completing Mikhail's multi-billion mark infrastructure plan. The rail network has connected dozens of cities throughout the empire, and will serve to ease the flow of construction materials to the new city.

Also from the CoW:

A tragety was discovered this morning, as the body of Prince Dawud, the younger brother of Kaisermelech Mikhail, was discovered in the rubble of a demolished building. While the exact cause of death has yet to be determined, it is suspected to be suicide. Dawud will be buried in the royal cemetary in Marscury.

From Marscury:

Kaisermelech Mikhail has recently met will nationalist composer William Johns, who wrote the Marscurian War Anthem, and they have chosen the final version of the National Anthem. A large celebration is planned in Marscury tonight, where the anthem will be played first, so that citizens can hear it alone, then it will be timed to a massive fireworks display. Mikhail says that he chose the anthem for its upbeat sounds and joyful tune.

A recording of the anthem can be heard:

From Marscury:

Today, the KaiserMelech ordered the commissioning of 1,000 more troops. These troops, along with 4,000 already stationed in the empire, will be stationed in the Sindh province. It will be their job to restore order and authority in the province, as well as seek out and destroy terrorists. The troops will be aided by a number of tanks and aircraft to be determined later.

020514-A-6418B-101.jpg

The new recruits, mainly from the Sindh province, were ferried to training camps through out Marscury.

Also from Marscury:

The KaiserMelech today issued a geographical proclaimation that was broadcast throughout the empire and around the world.

To avoid confusion, I have proclaimed the official names of the provinces of the Marscurian Empire. The first is Marscury proper. It has the name "Marscury," and it's provincial capital is the national capital of Marscury. To avoid confusion, the province will be refered to as "Marscury Province," while the city will be refered to as "Marscury." The second is the Marscurian/Terrestrian Joint Island. This will be refered to as "The Island," and its administrative capital is Friendtown. The third province is the Sindh Province, and its capital is the now under construction city of "East Indus." I hope the cartographers around the world take note of this change and record it properly.

From Marscury:

Piracy!

Shif Shipping reports that a convoy of their ships was attacked by pirates as they rounded the Horn of Africa. Out of the six ships in the convoy, 5 were captured, including 3 tankers, 1 container freighter and a bulk cargo freighter. The sixth ship managed to evade the pirates and return to Mietonka. It was determined that the ships were returning from a trade job in South America, and were returning with crude oil, luxury foods and Sugar. Apparently, 7 small boats armed with large caliber machine guns and RPG's encircled the ships and stormed the decks. No official word has come from the captured ships, but a hefty ransom is sure to be demanded. To avoid panic, the names of the ships have not been released, and the crew of the surviving ship has been held in a military base for questioning. The KaiserMelech ensured a swift response, and announced that a ransom would be denied, as the empire does not make deals with pirates. Prayer services are being held for the safety of the over 100 capured sailors.

Our condolances for the losses these pirates have inflicted. Is there anything we can do?

We are asking nations with functioning navies to stop the pirates' escape. A gps tracker in one of the containers gave the ship's last position to be 55'30 E, 9'50 N. We just need the ships to stay put, we will perform rescue operations ourselves.

From Mietonka:

Daring Rescue, 4 ships rescued.

In a nightime raid, 50 members of the Marscurian Special Forces and Secret Operations parachuted onto the captured ships in an attempt to subdue the pirates and rescue the crew. On four of the ships, the pirates were ambushed and killed without any Marscurian casualties, however, one of the parachuters landing on the oil tanker MES Shachor hit a pipe, alerting the pirates. A planted bomb was set off, killing everyone on board, and eventually sinking the ship. The troops and remaining crewmen were transported back to back to Marscury.

Land Swap Complete, Marscurian News to shut down for some time

The large scale movement of cargo from India to Pakistan has begun. As such, Marscurian News will be shutting down as the equipment is transfered to a temporary studio in Mietonka, and then on to the new capital. MN will be covering the move in depth over the next couple of weeks.

takr-295_sealift_ship.jpg

Military trucks are loaded onto ships designed to carry civilian cars. Everything viewed to be of military importance will be transported to Pakistan. This includes tanks, trucks, guns, ammunition, the port defenses and even the computers and machinery from MMW and MAMW.

Railways were also used to move equipment and people through Dragonisia and into M. Pakistan. The convoys were heavily guarded to avoid mishaps.

From Mietonka and Bin Qasim:

Large Lay-offs at National Defense Contractors!

Today, the nation's three defense contractors announced that they will be issuing large lay-offs due to sinking international sales of Marscurian Pakistani weaponry.

The head of Marscurian Military Works was quoted as saying:

"There just isn't that large a market anymore. Other nations simply make more advanced technology than we can."

The majority of the job losses are in the area of Research and Development. Rather than spending money to develop new materials, the companies are sticking with their already successful products. While domestic contracts are keeping the companies afloat, they have started to turn to other measures to gain some revenue. It is reported that the plans and machinery to the old MAT-80 tanks and MFJ-5 fighter jets have recently gone on sale, and it is expected that similar actions may be taken in the future.

Suspension Bridge Completed

The highway bridge crossing the Indus River into Marscury was finished today. In a ceremony presided over by the Sultan, a convoy of state cars made the trip between Marscury and the other side of the river. While the bridge is finished, it will recieve very little traffic for a short while, as the northward-heading highway has yet to connect to it.

Government Offices Move as Capital Totally Connected

Today, the main highway connecting the Tri-Cities to the capital city of Marscury was completed. At the same time, the bridge over the hazardous Chenab River was connected, allowing the highway to travel northward to the mountainous and sparsely populated regional center of North Khyber. The Sultan announced that he will be moving his government from its temporary home in Karachi to the still under construction capital.

Note that many of the buildings were built identically to the ones in the old Marscurian Empire, including the Mietonka Tower and the Marscury Tower, among others. The concrete bridge will be converted from a traffic to a rail bridge with the construction of the main bridge.

From Marscury:

Today, the heads of the military branches met to enact new military codes. The most notable of these is Code No. 278, the Equipment Customization Code, enacted by Generals George Masha'al and Karl Spaatz. This code allows the pilots and crews of military aircraft, tanks and artillery to provide names and nose art for their vehicles. It was determined that this would create a sense of unity among the pilots and crews, and allow for more attachment and better treatment of the equipment. There are a few rules that were enacted to regulate the process. Names and art cannot:

1. Include any nudity or profanity

2. Include any racist terms or pictures

3. Cover important areas of the vehicle, such as access areas or identification numbers

The effects have been seen almost instantly. Inspired by the chance to portray their artistic abilities, crews have gone to work painting. The most common artwork is that of famous models and actresses, the eyes and teeth of predators, and the horns and blaring nostrils of a markhor. Names are also appearing. The first aircraft named was a MGAH-24 Bactrian, named The Sultan's Peacemaker, while the first tank was named Flash Bang. We look forward to seeing what the troops will come up with in the future.
