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
With a bug in the forum software preventing us from managing them fixed, sanctioned alliance pips are now restored.
The following alliances are eligible for pips:
New Pacific Order
Independent Republic Of Orange Nations
New Polar Order
Freehold of The Wolves
Orange Defense Network
Green Protection Agency
The Dark Templar
Mostly Harmless Alliance
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
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.
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
There is now available to all board users an alternate skin to use instead of the default IP.Board skin. To access it: 1. Click Change Theme at the bottom left hand corner of the forums. 2. Select Alternate CN Skin.
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
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

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.

We're pleased to have them with us.
