      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.

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?

To clean up a little, could the three pinned mod-explanation threads (current thread, [url="http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=47898"]this one[/url] and [url="http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=48070"]this one[/url]) be combined into one or two threads?

I plan on joining the CNRP, but mostly just the IG version. Do i still need to ask permission of someone to place my nation on a map, when it's already there in game? Or does that only apply to the Fantasy RP section?

Technically, the Fantasy Sub-Forum is [b][u]usually[/u][/b] (bolded and underlined for those who may misinterpret me) but if you wish, the Fantasy RP subforum can be used for fictional writings, like an alternate WW1 timeline where Germany won. The IG side isn't a part of CNRP, unless you wish to join CNRP using Botha Mode, where everything is as it is IG in terms of military, population, etc. Side effects such as war also affect you in Botha mode, even if nobody has declared war on you.

My main focus was just to write up about events my nation goes through, to get rid of some boredom. It's mainly just going to be for myself, but there is a place here to post it, (Or am I not understanding the point of the Game Related RP?) so I figured I might as well do it.

It should be clarified that the CNRP Map (specifically [url="http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=76516&st=900"]http://forums.cybern...ic=76516&st=900[/url]]this thread[/url]) is only for the Fantasy RP section of the boards[b] and only for the unofficial CNRP universe.[/b] If you know things about comic multiverses, it acts similar to those. The "CNRP universe" is not the official RP of CN and you definitely do not need to put your country on the map to RP on this section.

[b]But[/b], the vast majority of the RPs and RPers in the Fantasy RP section roleplay in the "CNRP universe" and so if you wish to interact with them on the same field, you would need to place your nation on the map.

-----

After seeing what you just posted, then you would not need to post a nation on the map or do anything like that. What you're most likely looking for is Game-Related RP subsection, if the roleplay involves events directly related to your nation. Edited by Sargun

Sorry to double post, but I don't think just editting bumps the thread or not.

Anyway, this one is about the Fantasy RP. if I were to create a nation in the Fantasy RP, it says that my tanks would be the max tanks that I would normally have. Is that the max tanks I would have BEFORE or AFTER I multiply my IG soldier count to ten?

Say I have 1,000 soldiers IG, does that mean in the RP I would have 100,000 Soldiers and 200 tanks? Or would I make my Soldier count 100,000 first, and then I'd have a max of 20,000 tanks?

Say you have
100,000 civilians IG. This would, as per CN's calculations, result in
80,000 soldiers. You would thus have
800,000 soldiers in CNRP. Your tanks are, according to CN, a tenth of what you have as soldiers, meaning
8,000 tanks. This is the amount of tanks you'll have in CNRP.

Maximum soldiers.
Then maximum tanks.

My in game stats are as follows:
4,859 Soldiers
6,415 Working Citizens

So my RP stats would be:
Citizens: 641,500
Soldiers: 513,200
Tanks: 51,320

Correct?

Multiply my citizens by 100, 80% of that number is now my soldier count, and then 10% of my soldiers is now the number of tanks I have. Sorry, but I just want to make sure I've got it all right before I go posting any factbooks and such.

No. After study of the guidelines...80% of the IG (In-game) number of citizens is your max IG soldier count, and you calculate max tanks before the aplication of any mulipliers.

Max IG soldiers x 10 = RP soldiers
Max IG tanks = Max RP tanks

Therefore you would have 5,132 tanks

51,320 Soldiers not 500,000 +.

That would make it 5,132 tanks.

Durr...he calculated his soldiers after multiplying his citizens?
Then yes, he has only 51,320 RP soldiers.

[b]Tanks[/b] he actually only has a few hundred of, Keshav. 513 to be precise.

EVERYTHING is supposed to be calculated before applying multipliers. Edited by Subtleknifewielder

Wait, people are telling me so many different things.

In one thread it says to multiply my citizens by 100, and then use 80% of that numbers. But another thread is telling me to just multiply my IG soldier count by 10 and leave it as that.

So, i don't multiply the max amount of tanks at all, right? Max amount of tanks IG is the most I'll be able to have in the RP.

How do i go about calculating my soldiers then? Multiply citizens by 100 and then 80%? Or multiply max IG by ten? I'm very confused...

OK, this is how it goes.

IG, you have yourcitizen count. .Multiply that by .8 to get 80%, and those are the max soldiers you would be able to purchase IG.

A tenth of THAT number is the maximum tanks you could buy if you had that many soldiers.

NOw, for RP purposes...the number usually used for citizens is x 100, though no one will hold you strictly to that, since citizens don't matter in the overall scheme of fighting an RP war.

Your max IG soldier count is multiplied by ten to get your RP soldier count...and your max IG tanks translate into an equal number of RP tanks--no multiplier for these.

To make Subtle's explaination a bit simpler to understand, let's say for fun you have 500 IG citizens. You can thus field 400 RP soldiers. (500 x .8 = 400)

For citizens, you would have 50,000. (500 x 100 = 50,000, obviously)

Now, my math is probably wrong for the tank calculation (I'm managing to get 4k tanks) so I'll let somebody else get that. My math is probably wrong for most of this, so take this with a grain of salt unless soembody else provides real math. :v: Edited by Markus Wilding

[b][color="#ff0000"]Welcome, and a brief summary of this section of the forums[/color][/b]

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[b] [/b][url="http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showforum=73"]Game-related RP (IC)[/url] and [url="http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showforum=74"]Fantasy RP (IC)[/url], 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 [url="http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showforum=73"]Game-related RP (IC)[/url] 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.

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

[b][color="#ff0000"]FAQ's[/color][/b]

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.

So - basically, im allowed to RP in both forums just reffering to my in-game nation; i dont have to declare existance or buy land or whatever here?

You're allowed to RP anything related to in-game events in the Game-related RP (IC) forum. You're allowed to RP anything you want (as long as its within the forum rules) in the Fantasy RP (IC) forum. There's a limitation, though - if you want to interact with the members of the CNRP community as a nation, you will have to claim land in [url="http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=76516"]here[/url]. If you just want to RP as a character, just ask for permission from a CNRP member owning a nation you want to RP in.

If he wants to be a member of the CNRP community and make himself accountable to our RP rules then he needs to make a land claim. If, however, JimBob you dont want to deal with our rules and the members of the CNRP community (we can be an intense bunch at times) you are perfectly free to not join our community, in which case you could RP whatever your heart desires (within forum rules) in the Fantasy RP Area. With that said, CNRP is always welcoming of new members and many of us are receptive to new players looking to establish a land claim in CNRP for the first time.

citizens are x 100
soldiers are x 10 (meaning in your example he would have 4000
tanks are as is, meaning 40 in that example.

I updated the Map Thread OP with an actual example that far trumps your silly notions, guys. :P

[i]*Take your in-game citizen count and multiply it by .80. This number is your maximum in-game soldier count. Multiply this number by 10.0 and this number will be your maximum CNRP soldier count. Take that number and multiply it by .08, and this is your maximum CNRP tank count.
For example: if I have 10,000 citizens in-game, then I have 80,000 soldiers in RP and 1,000 tanks in RP.

*You may use whatever citizen count you wish for your CNRP nation within reason.[/i]

Second part with "whatever citizens" is fien.
But tanks not. :v:
Tanks are a tenth of your ingame soldiers. With 10,000 citizens, you have 8,000 soldiers and 800 tanks. Soldiers times ten, 80,000.
Meaning, essentially you just need to multiply citizens ingame by 8 for soldiers you have in CNRP, and citizens ingame by 0.08 for tanks.
10,000 civvies->80,000 soldiers, 800 tanks.

Historically civilian population has been relatively unregulated. Some people have used a x1000 multiplier, others a x100, others have used an arbitrary number, others have used their actual IG count, and some have based it on the relative size of their land. It doesn't really matter what you do as far as civilians are concerned, because they are pretty much useless in terms of how they effect your nation or others around you. Your economy is still determined by CN (for the most part) so if you have a very low infrastructure level and a very high citizen count you would probably have a pretty awful standard of living. For the most part population is just common sense. With 10.5k Infra I could have RP'd a huge population, but I chose to role play a smaller population, because my territory was a tiny island.

Beyond that its just 10x max soldiers to determine your RP soldier count. And the number of the maximum in game tanks you can own. Edited by iamthey
