Title: Total Farking COLD Fusion
Description: or is it something else?


Slayer99 - June 4, 2007 04:07 PM (GMT)
As is sometimes sad and necessary in the course of CN events, it is with great regret that I inform the Cyberverse that COLD and TF! have disbanded. But in a brilliant political move, The Phoenix Federation has risen to take in the many displaced refugees from COLD and TF!. I'd like to give a shout out to the leadership of The Phoenix Federation for their quick and honorable way they've dealt with the refugees. Furthermore, The Phoenix Federation has stated they will watch over the remaining members of COLD and TF! until they change their Alliance Affiliations or are deleted for inactivity.

For the tl;dr crowd, TF! and COLD have merged. Please check out our new forums at http://www.phoenix-federation.net and our IRC channel on esper.net at #TPF.

CODE

Charter of The Phoenix Federation

Preamble: The Phoenix Federation (hereafter TPF), a White team alliance, is dedicated to the education, growth, and security of its membership. To achieve these goals, TPF will train and aid members; and maintain a powerful and honorable military; and preserve strong commitments to its allies.

                           ZI-list
              (5)     May veto decisions made by the Defense Council with a majority
                      vote of the Triumvirate.
              (6)     May veto any amendment with a majority vote of the Triumvirate
              (7)     Any powers not delegated nor prohibited by this charter are

(A)    Council Members
              (1)     Appointed by the Triumvirate

              (2)     Initiatives presented by the Triumvirate or The High Council

Article III.      Foreign Policy

Section 3.01    TPF will view any attack on our members as a hostile act and retaliate in kind. Inactivity of a member is irrelevant to our enforcement of this policy. (for the tl;dr crowd, do NOT attack our inactives unless you want to be ZI’d).

Section 3.02    We will always attempt to resolve disputes via diplomacy first.

Article IV.     Espionage

Section 4.01    Members of TPF may not, at any time, spy upon another alliance, or upon TPF. Members may not leak private information about TPF or any other alliance. Furthermore, any TPF member that offers to present information about another alliance will be banned and sentenced to ZI.

Section 4.02    As other nations consider espionage an Act of War, so does TPF. Any alliance that is caught spying on TPF will be met with hostile action.

Article V.      War

Section 5.01    General Rules
(A)    Any nation on TPFs perma-ZI list is considered fair game
(B)    Members must not tech-raid aligned nations of more than 10 members, nor
       shall they tech-raid any alliance that is a protectorate of another alliance
(C)    Unaligned nations (Alliance=NONE) are considered fair game. If the tech-raid                                          
        goes bad, TPF will not assist member nations militarily or financially. In other
        words, members will be on their own if a tech-raid goes bad
              (1)     Team Color Exceptions (must not tech-raid in these teams)
                       a)  White Team
                       b)  Yellow Team
(D)    Member nations may only be involved in one offensive war at a time for                                                                                
        purposes of tech-raiding
(E)    Reps
              (1)     TPF will not pay reps to any unaligned nation.
              (2)     If a member violates our charter and attacks an aligned nation, they
                       will be required to pay reps to the victim or to anyone the victim’s
                       alliance designates. Repeat offenders will be expelled and subject to
                       ZI.
(F)     Members who violate the Charter’s rules on tech raiding will be subject to
        member sanctions up to, and including expulsion and ZI.

Article VI.     Nuclear Policy

Section 6.01    If a member of TPF is met with a nuclear first-strike, TPF will set to nuclear weapons-free on the offending nation

Section 6.02    If any TPF member is attacked by an unaligned nation, the TPF member may retaliate with a nuclear first-strike

Section 6.03    TPF does reserve the right to use nuclear weapons as a first-strike in war time, but such actions must be approved by the High Council. Any member using nuclear weapons without the approval and authority of the High Council will be considered rogue.

Article VII.     Amendments – While it is recognized that the alliance will grow, so shall this charter

Section 7.01    Any member of TPF may present an amendment to the High Council to bring to a vote by the Senate

clifclav - June 4, 2007 04:46 PM (GMT)
This is the coolest thing I've ever been involved in in my whole life including my marriage, the birth of my children, having backstage passes to a Hootie and the Blowfish concert and that time I had a threesome with Angelina Jolie and Marissa Miller.


OK...maybe not the Hootie concert.

Serious congrats to Tim, Slayer, Fishsticks and everyone else who made this happen.

Congrats and such.

I'm sure transferring the 2 MDP's into one won't be a problem for \m/ unless you're all going to become douchebags after the merge!

I'm pretty sure we're gonna be douchebag free :). Our new code of conduct, hopefully, guarantees that. Cross your fingers though :).

Cheers to TF! and COLD for getting us this far.

:)

And here's to good things ahead with our new burning bird!

Lammoth - June 4, 2007 05:27 PM (GMT)
Ah I was wondering when this was finally going to be announced. I figured something was up when I noticed COLD's NS had dropped like a stone and their leaders had joined some new alliance...

Congrats and all that
:J

John D. Rockefeller - June 4, 2007 05:28 PM (GMT)
Very nice. Congratulations on the successful merge and good luck :)

Doitzel - June 4, 2007 05:35 PM (GMT)
Congratulations - stats are looking good already. Little bit of elbow grease and I can see TPF becoming a major power in the future. Good luck.

Elbow Grease----Wait a minute nobody said we were going to actually have to work at this thing! Let me read that contract again. <doh>

Thanks for the Congrats.

I never liked COLD, mainly because one member was a total WUT propagandist.

I'm sure cold never liked you, either, so in the end everything worked out quite well.
