Article A. PreambleEdit
We the Members of NUHyperForce strive to develop a united alliance supporting each member that calls NUHyperForce home. NUHyperForce creates an environment of mutual respect and allows for free expression of opinion and ideas without prejudice or concern for reprisal as long as the intent of our Charter is met. The NUHyperForce Charter creates the opportunity for our membership to collectively strengthen the political, social, economic, and defensive capabilities of our alliance, for the betterment and protection of its members, and for the overall benefit of the blue sphere as well as planet BOB.
Article B. Admission RequirementsEdit
Admission to NUHyperForce shall be very selective and requires all applicants to study provided reading material, pass an exam, and pass an interview on IRC before admission as a full member will be considered. The basic initial criteria is as follows:
- NUHyperForce shall be a Blue alliance and all nations rulers deciding to join NUHyperForce shall be given 30 days to move to the Blue Team. Exceptions shall be made on a case by case basis depending on level of experience and current status of trades. As an example, if a mature nation joins NUHyperForce, is not blue, but has a very good circle with long time partners, then an exception can be granted. However, if those trades were to change, then that nation would be expected to migrate to the Blue Sphere.
- Application Process - Any nation may request admission to NUHyperForce by making an application containing the following information and posting it in the appropriate location in the forums (applications for new members area): a. Nation Name: b. Ruler Name: c. Nation Strength: d. Link to nation: e. Forum Name (Your forum name should be the same as ruler name): f. Past Alliances: g. Recruited By: h. Are you currently at war? i. Any Special Skills or Training (graphics? previous experience in CN? HTML?, etc.): j. I confirm I will not start wars without permission from the alliance: Yes or No
- Any NU member may then ask the applicant questions in their application thread.
- The Chancellor or assigned Commanding Officer will perform a background check and will decide whether or not the ruler will be accepted as an applicant.
- After an applicant is accepted they will be put into probationary period and will put "NUHyperForce Applicant" as their Alliance Affiliation on their main CN nation page. During this time the new applicant must complete a basic education by attending the NUHyperForce Academy and completing the Academy Exam. In addition, the applicant must complete an IRC Interview with a senior member (typically the Chancellor or assigns). The intention of the interview is to weed out applicants who don't appear to understand the academy or our basic prinicples of our alliance. Once these steps are completed to the satisfaction of the Chancellor, then the applicant will graduate to full member status. Nations under 60 days old will be required to work through the Academy, take the quiz, and complete the interview during their probationary period. The Chancellor with input optional from other alliance members has the authority to adjust this requirement based on a review of the applicants information including but not limited to number of days played, references, and past experience.
