  • defamatory

  • obscene

  • griefing




Section 4) The following are the applicable punishments or consequences for any blatant violation of any of the prohibition prescribed on Section 3. On the other hand, any executive or judicial action of the Security Council beyond the scope of this Act shall remain superior.

  • First Offense - Forum Warning

  • Third Offense - 3 Day Forum Ban

  • Fourth Offense - 7 Day Forum Ban

  • Fifth Offense - Permanent Forum Ban





Section 5) It is necessary that offenses shall be counted based on the similarity of the grounds for issuing the said punishments. It is also encouraged tha dedicated thread shall he created to serve as the depository of offenses made to all account holders (nations) for reference.

Section 7) All account holders (nations) subjected to the provisions of Section 4 may opt for an appeal within one day after the implementation of the punishment/s. Initially, an appeal shall be filed to the Vice Presidency whose decision, if favorable to the concerned account holder (nation) shall have the consent of the Presidency. Otherwise, if the decision of the Vice Presidency is not in favor of the account holder (nation), that decision is final.



Section 8) But as a means of last resort for the account holder (nation) accorded with the particular punishment, in connection to Section 7, it may opt for a last attempt to reverse the decision of the Vice Presidency by seeking an endorsement to overturn the punishment decision of the Vice Presidency from an existing member of the Security Council which shall then be subjected to the approval of the Security Council.

NOTE: This initial draft is just the outcome of discussions between Scouting and Eurussia, including the adoption of reasonable and applicable NS Rules as initial basis. All sorts of opinion and revisions are very much welcome.

Thank you.


I would like to propose the following amendments within reason.


This amendment is to revamp and refurbish our region with the purpose of creating a more stable environment.
