      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 Karachi:

First Clinics in the Country Open!

Today, a string a clinics opened throughout the TriCity area, numbering six in total. This is definately a relief to everyone, as the only medical care that has been available at all has been traditional medicines. This is a great welcome to the entire nation, as it will surely advance our levels of health care and raise the life expectancy, which currently stands at 45.

img_0075.jpg

One of the new clinics, opened in the heart of Karachi.

Although there are now fully functioning clinics, there is a severe lack of doctors and nurses to man them, due to the absence of any schools in the country. The government has put out advertisements to medical schools all over the world, offering free housing and a generous bonus to any doctor or nurse who will work in Marscurian Pakistan.

From Mietonka:

Doctors Arrive!

Masses of people were at the TriCities International Airport, celebrating the arrivals of the first modern doctors in Marscurian Pakistan. Thousands of people arrived on dozens of planes, and were escorted to their living arrangements. While they walked to the buses, flowers were thrown at their feet and many people tried to break through police barricades to hug the new arrivals.

When asked about the experience, one young doctor had this to say:

I can't believe that all of this is just for us. I came here to see the world and work in some place new, but this is just astounding. I feel like I will truly make a difference here.

New Environmental Laws Take Effect. Mass Exodus!

Today, several of the Sultan's new environmental laws took effect. A main law has to do with fishing in the Indus River. Many fisherman have been forced to end fishing in parts of the river that have been declared "Environmental Sanctuaries" for endangered species such as the Indus River Dolphin and Sindh Crocodile. At the same time, fish stocks in the Arabian Sea are dropping due to overfishing by other nations. With this mix of events, many fishermen have left Marscurian Pakistan in search of better waters.

From Karachi:

Country Recieves Uranium. Clueless of what to do with it.

Today, a ship carrying a shipment of unprocessed uranium ore has unloaded its cargo. Currently, officials don't know what to do with the shipment. Currently, they plan to either sell it, or use it for paperweights.

OOC: I lost fish in a trade, so I rped that. I also gained uranium, but with no nuclear power plant or weapons, I can't really use it for anything.

Material Supply Stops, Economy In Danger!

Two days ago, the major supplies of iron, steel and rubber ceased their shipments into the port of Karachi. This terrible news puts the entire Marscurian Pakistan industrial machine in great peril. We have already received word that resources have been halted to both Karakoram Motors and MNMW and diverted to other sources. Marscurian Military Works and MAMW are both running severly under capacity, and many infrastructure projects, notably the road link to the Dragon Empire in the North face being canceled. Unless supplies are restored, the country faces a severe recession.

A bridge in the road system in the Northern Territories leading into the Dragon Empire. It has had its resources stopped and it faces an uncertain future.

OOC: I lost Iron and Rubber IG, so I'm losing them here too.

From Islamabad:

Growing Tensions in the NWT. Armed Rebellion Breaks Out!

Just noted this morning, a Waziri independence group calling themselves the Waziri Independence Army has attacked several army convoys. The group is still rumored to be small, under 1,000 members, but are still armed and dangerous. Thousands of people fleeing the violence have moved into refugee camps near the territorial capital of Islamabad. Several divisions of the Army and Air Force are being mobilized into the area, and the violence is expected to end soon.

Thousands of Waziri refugees loyal to the government have fled to refugee camps like this one, set up outside of Islamabad.

OOC: As seen here.

Sultan Calls Out For Business

With stores of iron ore and rubber reaching an all time low, the country drifts perilously close to a recession. The Sultan himself has personally sent a call to all companies around the world to begin exports. Fair prices for the materials will be assured.

OOC: I re-acquired the resources IG, now I just need them here.

From Moloco:

Strange Construction on Indus River

They began arriving late last week. Over 500 construction workers and dozens of pieces of heavy machinery set up camp on the Eastern bank of the Indus River, south of the territorial capital of Moloco. The workers have fenced off a substantial piece of land, almost 1 square mile in size. The purpose for all the work is unknown, however, we are assured that the construction project is government related, but not related to the military. Our crew riding on boats down the river snapped these pictures of the work.

Country has an Heir! Almost

Today, the Sultan and Sultana visited one of the new clinics in the TriCity area for an ultrasound on the unborn child. The tests showed that the child was a boy and was in good health. The couple have not chosen a name, as they will wait for the actual birth before deciding.

Fire in The Sultan's Palace! 2 Killed, Dozens Hurt!

Early this morning, a fire broke out on the top floor of the Sultan's Palace. It is unknown at what exact time the blaze started, but the smoke detectors went off at around 9:00 am, and the whole palace was evacuated by 9:15. Unfortunately, two maintenance worker where trapped in an elevator, which was stopped by the fire. Their cause of death has been deemed "smoke inhalation." The blaze quickly spread throughout the building, which was deemed beyond repair after the fire was put out after several hours. The building is deemed to be demolished as quickly as possible, so a new palace may be constructed. The cause of the fire is unknown. The palace was just recently constructed, so a faulty wire could have caused the fire, but investigators are also looking into the possibility of a terrorist attack. Several groups are being looked into, such as Waziri nationalist groups seeking revenge for the defeat of the Waziri Independence Army, or Communist groups who may feel threatened by the Sultan's anti-communist stance.

We thank you for the offer, but this is a national problem, and we will only become stronger by overcoming it as a nation.

From Marscury:

First Schools Open Across the Nation!

Today, the first of a wide network of schools opened across the country. These schools were opened in the TriCity area, but the Sultan has mandated that all population centers with at least 500 people will receive a school in their area. If a smaller area wishes for a school, they simply need to petition for one, and a small tax increase will pay for it. The schools will be paid for with taxes and free night classes will be offered for working adults who wish to learn. The schools are only elementary schools, but a rigid curriculum has been designed. For all incoming students, the following are education requirements to graduate:

-Fluency and literacy in the 3 official languages of the country, English, Urdu and Yiddish

-Ability to preform the 4 basic functions of Mathematics (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division)

-Adequate knowledge of the history of both Marscurian Pakistan and the Marscurian Empire

-Ability to read a map, plot longitudes and latitudes, and know the basic geography of Marscurian Pakistan

-Basic knowledge in various sciences

While no official teachers have been trained, wealthier citizens who have had the privilege of a private tutor have taken jobs at the schools. The full network of schools is expected to be completed in several months.

Here, children are seen at school. The official school year starts in the middle of August and ends in June. School hours can vary based on the needs of the community.

OOC: Guess who just got their first school IG. ^_^

From Moloco:

Safe Rivers Act Goes Into Effect!

Today, the Safe Rivers Act, which regulates boats on the Indus River and it's tributaries went into effect. The goal of the law is to maintain the water quality of the river and to protect the animals in it, specifically the Bhulan, or Indus River Dolphin, which is a protected species. The law has four basic regulations.

1. In sections of the river, various navigation channels have been marked. These are for the safety of both people and animals. Leaving the designated channel in the marked areas will result in large fines.

2. The release of ballast seawater into the Indus River is strictly forbidden. All seawater that is planned to be released must be released before entering the river.

3. The use of propellers on vessels larger than 30 feet is forbidden. This is to save the lives of the wildlife in the river. If a large vessel wishes to enter the river, it must do so under sail power. If a shipping company is too poor to afford sails, they may ask for a subsidy.

4. The release of toxic materials into the river is strictly forbidden. Such materials include, but are not limited to gasoline and diesel fuel, motor oil, lubricants, paint and cleaning solutions. This is to keep the river habitable for wildlife and to maintain the water at acceptable quality for irrigation and drinking.

While many have criticized the plan for harming the economy of the country, the Sultan insists that keeping the Indus River clean is a national priority.

Troop Mobilizations!

Today, the 131st and 132nd Mountain Divisions have been mobilized to combat Communist rebels in the Antarctican nation of Kitex. The divisions, numbering around 2,000 men, were chosen due to their experience fighting in snowy environments and below-freezing temperatures. They will travel with a substantial amount of weapons and ammunition, including several mortars. Five Bactrian Attack Helicopters are also accompanying the soldiers on their mission. The air force is hoping to send 5 MPGAA-10's but is unable to without allowing the planes to stop and refuel in foreign countries. We offer our support and prayers to the troops.

Mysterious Construction Revealed, Country Will Receive Second Port!

The mysterious construction south of Moloco has been revealed this afternoon. After the construction spread for a mile in each direction, angry residents demanded to know what was being built, and city officials announced that the construction is for a small port on the Indus River. Due to the nature of the traffic the port will receive, officials have named it The Moloco Sailport, as only sailing vessels can enter the river.

Prince Finally Born!

The first prince of Sultan Mikhail was born today in a health center in Karachi. This caused stirs because it was the first time in almost 400 years that a royal was not born in the capital. Nevertheless, the birth went off perfectly, and both the baby and Sultana Rania are in good health. The name for the child has not yet been chosen, but will be decided on when the child is eight days old. We want to join the country in congratulating the young couple!

On a special edition of Marscurian News, the Sultan himself gave the announcement:

We would like to thank everyone who gave us their well wishes. Several days ago, our son had his Bris Milah, and we gave him his name. In accordance to our laws, the son is always named by the KaiserMelech, while the daughter is named by the KaiserinMelcha. Well, since those positions no longer exist, we have decided that I shall give the boy his first name, while his middle will be supplied by his mother. Well, tonight I announce to you Meyer Ali Stein, Prince of Marscurian Pakistan.

From Karachi:

Royal Marscurian Bank Fractures!

Today, the Royal Bank of Marscury fractured into 5 smaller banks. When asked about why the move occured, the CEO of the bank stated that the company had simply become too large and inefficient and was at risk of collapsing under its own weight. The smaller banks, each centered in a different territory, will maintain strong ties with each other, but are all completely independent. Only time will tell if this move will be positive.

Centered in Karachi, the Royal Bank of The Coastal Territories will be the largest of the 5 and retain most of the original leadership.

The Royal Bank of The Central Territories is the second largest of the 5 and will also have existing structure to build on.

The Royal Bank of The Northern Territories will be built in North Khyber and will be the third largest. Despite the small population of the Northern Territories, and the lack of any previous banks, the territories are the 3rd most developed.

The Royal Bank of The Western Territories will be completely new, as the territory is brand new and no banks have yet to be built there.
