Code of Conduct:
A brief summary on how a visitor should behave while applying to the New Polar Order

Begging for aid:
It's considered impolite to beg for aid. With that said, The New Polar Order offers numerous economic programs that benefit you and the alliance as a whole. You will have access to these programs once you become a member.

Respect:
Anything said here should be respectful and thought out.  There are consequences for treating people disrespectfully.  Please abide by our rule.


Process of becoming a member:

Visitor
When you make an account on the forums you are just a visitor, you are neither a member or an acolyte yet.

Applicant
Once you have posted an application for the New Polar Order you will be an applicant. As an applicant please check back and respond to any questions about your application.

Acolyte
Once accepted by an Admissions Officer you will become an Acolyte. Your forum permissions will be improved and you will be able to access The Academy. As an acolyte you are to complete the Academy.

Member:
After you have completed the Academy you will be masked as an official New Polar Order member and have full benefits of being a member.



Useful Terms:

Masked:
A mask refers to your forum access and forum permission set.

Trade Circle:
A trade circle is where you and five others all trade resources with one another. These Trade Circles follow "Trade Sets" which are resource groupings that provide strong economic profit. Circles often have all the members on one team colour because trading with nations on your team provides economic bonuses.  You will find more information about economics and trading in the Academy.

Team or Colour
These both refer to your Team Colour on CyberNations. We use the Blue Team as our official team colour.


Acronyms

When someone says AA it means your alliance affiliation, or the alliance you are flying in the game CyberNations.

CyberNations.

NS:
Nation Strength. A value found on your nation information screen which is used to relate your nation's strength to others.
