      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.

Information/FAQ/Questions National RP

Recommended Posts

Welcome, and a brief summary of this section of the forums

First of all, welcome to the Open National forum. I'll be your tour guide. B)

You'll see, upon first arriving here, two subforums, labelled Game-related RP (IC) and Fantasy RP (IC), respectively.

The first should be self-explanatory, but in case it is not, here's a brief summary. Anything that happens to you in the game itself, whether the Standard Edition or the Tournament edition, can be RP'ed here. This goes for anything--spy attacks, trades (and sanctions), the global radiation level, wars, and even individual events within the wars, if you so desire. Anything that happens in-game is acceptable to RP out more fully here.

The Fantasy RP, however, is a little more ambiguous. While the things that are RP'd in the Game-related RP (IC) can still be RP'ed here, also permitted in the Fantasy section are RP's that have little to no connection with ingame events. You can RP Science-fiction, Fantasy, or other things having nothing to do with the game itself. By far the biggest Role-Playing universe is termed, simply, Cybernations Role-Play (CNRP).

Both of these forums are IC. OOC should be avoided unless necessary, and if it becomes necessary...that is what the Open World Forum itself is for.

----------------

FAQ's

Q: What is CNRP?

A: Cybernations Role-play. It is a role-play that is losely based upon certain ingame statistics, but is otherwise uninvolved with the game. Ingame alliances, feuds, wars, disagreements, etc, generally do not exist here.

Q: Do I have to RP in CNRP to Rp in the Fantasy forum?

A: No. And do not be put off by those who post in your threads saying various things like, "are you on the map?" or "No way is possible." These are simply CNRP'ers wondering if you are joining CNRP.

Q: In CNRP do I have to have my nation on the map RP?

A: Not necessarily. CNRP includes not only role-playing between nations, but role-playing on a small scale, or even with individual characters. A number of players have RP'd without bothering establishing a nation on the map.

Q: I have an RP thread that hasn't been active in about a month. Am I allowed to finish it?

A: Yes. Gravedigging has a looser interpretation in these three forums. While the rest of the forums only allow seven days before it is called gravedigging and you get warned, here, you are allowed greeter leeway--as long as the thread isn't three months old, or on something like the 25th page, feel free to finish it. The only thing not allowed in this case, however, is a one or two word post (in other words, contentless) whose sole purpose is to bump the topic.

----------------

This list is not complete. Feel free to ask questions about the forums here, and I and my fellow Mods will do my best to answer them. Do not be shy.

Also, other RP'ers can feel free to answer questions, as long as the answers remain respectful.

Q: If one had a role play thread that they stopped roleplaying in, say, a month or even three weeks prior to present day, would they be allowed to 'grave dig' that thread to resume roleplaying in it (without fear of mods closing the thread and/or warning the player)?

I've done that more than once; The thing that should not be tolerated is a simple "bump", without any content.

The Earth Roleplay thread pinned in the IC subforum gives off the wrong idea. A better thing to do would to have it labeled "Earth RP Map Thread and Rules" and the other map thread "CNRP Map Thread and Rules", that way no thread title or amount of posts gives a wrong idea to new players.

Lynneth is correct. While in the majority of the forums, gravedigging is defined as posting in a topic that hasn't been active for 7 days or more, you are allowed more leeway here in these three forums.

Good suggestion. i'll take care of it.

1) Is it a requirement to have and IG nation on CN to participate in CNRP?

2) If not, when setting up my nation's factbook and such, at what time period do i set myself in? (Ex. Will my military comprise of Archers and Swordsman or can i put MBTs and Machineguns in there?)

1: It should be, since you're on the CN Forums. :P

2: CNRP is set in the modern world.

Population is your IG number time 100. Soldiers are your max IG number times 10. Any other questions, don't hesitate to ask here or shoot me a PM.

Although people tend to be a little more forgiving if you fudge on the population...just remember that civilians have absolutely no effect on wars with other nations unless all participants agree that somehow they do.

Planes are what you have IG, until you get to be a more modern nation (I believe it's 500 tech), then you can have each represent a squadron.

Navy is what you have IG.

Thanks. i hate to be the annoying noob asking all the questions. and for infastructure and tech it goes with IG standards too?

Correct.

And no problem. I'm sure this is exactly why the Mods created this thread.

Howdy do- I'm a new player, just started a week ago. However, I'm an experienced roleplayer, and I am wiggling in my shoes waiting to roleplay with nations.

But I have some concerns...

I'd like to start roleplaying immediately, but I dont know if I'm allowed to represent myself as a sovereign nation. I know on the global map (created by players) there are country boundaries, and you cant just waltz in and try and get some claim. For example, I am in Saudi Arabia, and the country of Novak has the biggest claim of the area. Am I a protectorate (and what does this entail?), a cultural group, a state, or what? Of course I'd like to roleplay as a sovereign nation, but as always in RP, "Role with the Punches."

In trying to be a controversial nation (Based in Middle East, modeled after Cuba), it'd be nice to know my boundaries. Playing an antagonist is entirely different than being one, and in my attempt to not offend anyone, I'd appreciate learning how to roleplay within the bounds here at CNRP.

My question summed up: Is my nation IG a sovereign nation, a protectorate, cultural group, or a state?

CNRP is a community RP, basically you can join the community by asking for land from the owners, then waiting for their confirmation/denial, or claiming unclaimed white space (which none exists at the moment), or requesting protectorate (grey) land from the owners (which usually results in acceptance, but still ask and wait for a reply). Once you get a spot then your RP is open to community interaction, but don't try to find loop holes in the guidelines of it. A sure fire way to alienate the entire CNRP community against you is trying to break the CNRP community.

Regular roleplay is just that. You just write your own stuff, and its on its own. That's often Game Related RP, but some fantasy RP happens. Don't worry if you don't join CNRP and some confused CNRPers think you're really RPing in CNRP if you're not trying to.

In any case you can RP your nation as sovereign, protectorate, cultural, state, etc, and just for CNRP you need permission to RP in someone else's land. Outside of CNRP it doesn't matter. You could be the space leeches from planet 50alpha taking over the planet outside of CNRP. :v:

Tip from a guy that didn't know how protectorates worked: Any gray land with the words "<nation name> Protectorate" can be lcaimed by you ,you'll just need permission from whoever owns the land first.

Also, if you want a large landmass, start small. If there's a huge protectorate like Viniland's, provide a map with the area you want, otherwise something might get lost.

Also, DON'T try to be the antagonist. It never works for anyone. If you feel you're up to it, try it and let me know how it works out. :) But do expect to get rolled quickly and very fast if you attempt to go Afghanistan on someone.

For purposes of CNRP, your IG nation does not even, necessarily, exist. While character RP's don't require much, to RP as a larger recognized, sovereign entity, you have to first either claim white land, or talk to the person who owns the land you want, and work it out with them. many people are willing to give up portions of their land to a new player, to encourage new nations to form.

Others will require you to go through less independed phase, such as a protectorate or simply semi-autonomous zone.

Some won't give an inch.

But you won't know until you actually PM them. You don't get to RP anything at ALL in someone else's territory without their permission first. In this case, the person you need to talk to is Voodo Nova.

As for how your IG nation relates to here...it can be RP'd as any of the above, once you have the go-ahead. It's your choice, within the restrictions set up by whoever gave you the permission.

In trying to be a controversial nation (Based in Middle East, modeled after Cuba), it'd be nice to know my boundaries. Playing an antagonist is entirely different than being one, and in my attempt to not offend anyone, I'd appreciate learning how to roleplay within the bounds here at CNRP.

My question summed up: Is my nation IG a sovereign nation, a protectorate, cultural group, or a state?

Since Novak owns Saudi Arabia, no, you cannot RP in our universe in Saudi Arabia without Novak's prior permission. Of course, if you wish to be based in the Middle East you can simply ask for a piece of land there and see if someone gives it up. More likely than not you'll find a friendly soul somewhere willing to give up land, it just might not be where you want it.

Finally, being an antagonist is dangerous territory here. You'll probably die fast.

Thanks! In what forum should I be posting my desire to... well, "be"?

As for being an antagonist. I dont mean to assault people at random, nor do I mean to cross limits. Cuba is a small island nation that just pisses people off. The missile crisis being the biggest. They picked their allies a bit unconventionally, but it was -need- that compelled them.

I guess antagonist wasnt the right word. "Cockroach" might be better.

Anyways, thanks for answering these questions. It'll be fun to finally get a stake in World Roleplay!

Even then, most people can and will squish "cockroaches" the second they get the chance. There's a LOT of big nations in CNRP, and not a whole lot of small ones, in terms of NS. (I'm the latter as my growth was stunted)

But, again, try whatever you want and see how it works out, and welcome to CNRP!

If you need to post to ask for permission, go ahead and post in the map thread in the Fantasy Subforum. However, that's no guarantee that the owner will see your request. A Private Message (PM) is more likely to get his attention.

I'll try both. I've tried PMing, and havent had any luck yet, but there can be a multitude of reasons for that. I'll go ahead and post some stuff up.

Yeah, regardless of your IG nation, you can start wherever in CNRP. As for being an antagonist, we've had antagonists last as long as...how long has tahoe been here?
