Moderation Statement on Multis and Tech Removal II

Following another long-term investigation moderation staff have taken action against another large mutli/shared account ring. In accordance with policy tech sent by the offending nations has been scrubbed. It should also be noted that this action was taken concurrently with several other now concluded investigations into unrelated rule violations which resulted in deletions and/or bans.   As a reminder: it is against the rules to run multiple accounts, it thus goes without saying that

Moderation Statement on Multis and Tech Removal

Over the past few months the moderation staff has been monitoring a large ring of multiple/shared/gifted accounts. We wish to inform you that we have "corrected" the actions of those involved and removed the tech sent by the illicit nations.   As a reminder each individual person playing the game is allowed to have one nation. You may not use proxies, virtual private networks, or other tools to evade this rule. You are also not allowed to transfer your account to another player upon de

Suggestion Box Policy Change

The Suggestion Box has returned to no longer requiring topics to be approved by moderation before they can be commented on.   Bear in mind that the standard forum rules still apply to submitting and commenting on suggestions. Any suggestions which do not adequately explain the ideas being proposed, advertise other games, degrade into a flame war, are excessively repeated, and so forth will be subject to locking or removal at the discretion of the moderation staff.

Relaxation And Review Of Forum Rules

With the age of the game, and the declining number of players, some of the stringent forum rules are being updated and amended for the smaller player base that the game is played. One such rule that has been updated is that a forum ban no longer means you are automatically banned in-game unless the punishment for the content of your forum post is a gross misconduct, then it will be reviewed and your nation may be deleted at that point based upon moderator(s) discretion. You will still be restric

Clarifications and Reminders

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: 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
