Regarding Tech Received From Multis
The moderation team has been researching, discussing and reviewing the issues surrounding tech received from nations deleted as multis. We have provided the information found during our research to admin. With the approval from admin the following new policy has been established starting today:
Any tech received from a nation that is deleted for a multi will be removed.
We have reviewed such nations from over the past year or more. In some case
In response to possible confusion over the revisions to the spam rule we'd like to provide some general clarifications to this and a few other rules.
Spam in the general sense is a contentless post, a post which contributes nothing to an active conversation. Spam mucks up threads, makes them difficult to follow, and introduces discontinuities which if sufficiently large will kill a discussion. As moderators we enforce this and other rules to maintain quality in the community, we don't do
First of all, I got married!
Second, IM 70.3 Lake Tahoe (my honeymoon race) Recap:
IM 70.3 Lake Tahoe was an absolutely amazing race. It was quite different in terms of set-up (compared to other races we’ve done), but I’ll get into that in a bit. I’m going to cover everything, beginning with the first day we checked in for the race.
On Thursday the 17th, we had check-in at Squaw Valley early in the morning. We were surprised to see that they had a TON of vendors at this event, as well as f
Sorry if that bloc still exists, but you weren't/aren't politically relevant enough to warrant exclusivity of the phrase.
This entry is going to be about Polaris, XX members and former members, ex-SF, and that general sphere of influence that has maintained, by choice or force, a certain isolation from the main grouping that we would consider the treaty web.
I wanted to discuss the formulaic use of the "Usual Suspects" as a political and economic tool of warfare against certain undesirable mem
I'm a 'newer' player compared to some of you old geezers.
I think world wars are good for planet bob, and that's neither here-nor-there. The question I have is, why do we have a yearly world war?
Easy question I thought and I asked some people and the response I have gotten is "we just do".
Sort of like the nation of brittben celebrating holloween every year, we just do- and what I am getting at is: there has to be a history of where a scheduled war period started- it is probably the most sou
The staff will be relaxing the prohibitions on spam effective immediately. From here on out, the staff will no longer issue warns for one word posts expressing general approval to an announcement (e.g "Hail", "yay", "congrats" ect). Players should note that posts containing only emoticons or 'o/' will still be considered spam.
Revisions in Bold:
We have picked a winner for the forum pip contest. All of the entries were good. There were over twenty entries. Each moderator picked their top choices and I picked the one image that was in most of the moderator picks.....the winner is Teeters from the New Pacific Order.
Teeters will have the choice of 3 $30 donations or a pip for his alliance for the CN forums.
We also want to recognize and thank Ghuxalia for his help with creation of the webpage that allowed us to sort and view the submi
No big surprise here, but as inactive as CN is, as dead in the toilet as this game has become.....is anyone surprised the degree of deadness in the OWF, AP specifically?
I usually just go in their to troll and post stupid !@#$, but there isn't anything to even troll anymore.
There was this push a while back.....it's always been part of CN leadership, but it's gotten worse over the years. What some alliances learned is the best way to run alliances is to only say positive things about others.
The nation sitting thread is now closed.
Nation Sitting Requests are now to be filled out in the Nation Sitting Request forum.
Follow the Nation Sitting Instructions announcement for making your thread for nation sitting.
I'd like to take the opportunity to announce the additions of Xena of Amphipolis, Elend, Que Sera Sera, and Lucius Cornelius Sulla to the moderation team. Over the years they've demonstrated themselves to be solid players of commendable judgement and character. It is our belief they will excel in serving the community now as members of the staff. We're pleased to have them with us.

Welcome to the first entry in the moderation team blog!
This blog will be used for announcements and other topics between moderation and the forum members.
There are some exciting things being done with the moderation team and we look forward to sharing those with all of you.
There is a review of the current moderation structure taking place and the new structure will be announced within weeks. Along with the restructuring, there will be the need for new graphics ma
So what's the deal with the logo changes in Cyber Nations? Well I was fiddling around with an image editor this weekend and I liked some of the effects that it was capable of producing. The biggest thing (for me) is that I was able to pretty closely replicate the current logo and save it as a true transparent image. The old CN logo was designed by a player way back in early 2006 but he sent it to me as a jpg image with a white background and so I've always had trouble putting it in front of anyt
To determine a persons true looks one should look for personal descriptions. Often on the first page of biographies. Most thinking and educated persons know a painter is paid to make his clients look good, so we need more sources to confirm a persons look.
In 1848 during the FINAL REVOLUTIONS OR SPRINGTIME OF HUMANITY the French THIRD ESTATE were given political rights. They numbered now 97 percent of the population, and the first order of business was to have all old master portraits, already
According to a Wikipedia article about THE FINAL REVOLUTIONS and THE SPRINGTIME OF HUMANITY, in 1848 the 97 percent majority in all of Europe were given political rights and men were given universal suffrage. I believe this 97 percent majority were the pink Europeans. The 3 percent minority were the nobility and the bourgeoisie. They were descendents of the founders of Europe, who came from North Africa after the ice had melted 45.000 years ago.
History as you have been taught and known it is mostly lies. On the surfaces, dates and major events are truth but THE REASONS they occured are not whay you thihnk. Why has this elaborate shroud been thrown over our eyes? That is what this blog intends to discover. Join me in my resaerch as I delve into the deep questions of history and we try to solve them, and maybe one day determine just who is reposonbible for the poor state of history education. (Hint: the educato
We study history to learn, and improve, ourselves, and our alliances, and the cybververse. In our studies we have always noticed that the NPO inflicts the cruelest, most inhumane punishments on its conqured foes.
What iare these punishments you ask? It is simple. Most aliances, having declared their victory, simply ask for reparations. The most honorable alliances (such as those of the CoaLUEtion) ask only for an apology and peace to the turmoil. But no, glory hogs such as the NPO and thei
(Disclaimer: this speech was made after consuming a few beers, and if an alliance leader doesn't occasionally drink beer while playing CN, they are failing at life)
((This speech is dedicated to Dajobo, who I found to be an inspiring leader and a great friend ever since I returned to CN in 2013. He is currently in the hospital and I ask that all others share my prayers for his swift healing. He has a warriors heart and I have no doubt that he will defeat his ailments in short ord
History as we know it is a series of event that must be studied, to produce tangible effects. We make our prognoses based on what we have seen in the past. And we hold people ACCOUNTABLE for their past actions. The NPO's atrocities are numerous, as we can all agree. What we can't agree on, these cybernations nations, is that the NPO is RESPONSIBLE for the destruction of many nations/alliances/NAAC.
In the aftermath of the "THIRD GREAT WAR" the NPO claimed total victory of the bob. but this
This HEGEMONY, the NPO, must be held accountable for their atrocious actions throughout the years. Why are they still the major power in this, the world? Who is responsible for their rise to power? The answer is the gang of crooks that has run this organization since its inception, and a weak cybernations that have allowed the NPO to do what it wants while never holding them accountable. Why does one alliance get an entire trading sphere to itself? Hear me, those who are ready to start the
We study history to see the reason behind these wars. The tragedy, of MH17 can't be understated. Who is responsible? We need to hold the state of the Netherlands responsible for their atrocity. Where is the force behind the UN? Where is the moral indignation> These events are allowed to happen to give RUSSIA the WAR that it desires.
The stataed intention here, to destroy the Baltic states, and subject the MUSLIMS to the scapegoat experience.
Day of Confusion
No one is quite sure what is going on at the moment in the BUHDOODA Alliance. While at the same time they are at war with Monsters Inc., BUHDOODA is being told that the NpO now protects Monsters Inc. from any attacks, even though the war still wages technically.
When asked why no fresh battles have been undertaken, the Supreme General shrugged his shoulders and said, "I'm not even sure what war means at this point in time."
