National History Edit
Our nation was Founded on the 13th of February 2006, at 3:30 on a monday afternoon. The first alliance we joined was the Orange Defense Network (February 2006). We made new friends and designed some known artworks and infamous propaganda. Planet Bob was still young, and very soon we found ourselves involved in our first conflict. Of course, we valiantly fought side by side with our orange compatriots.
- Citrus War (February 2006)
After a troublesome first month and affected by recent conflict, we decided to migrate and join a contrasting alliance: the New Pacific Order (March 2006). As a member of this red team alliance, we were involved in two wars. Intrepid battles earned us reverence and respect, although few remain who still recall those early days.
After spending a year on Digiterra, a feeling that it was time for a new direction and a change of alliance began to grow. It had come to our attention that an old ally, Tamurin, had established his own blue sphere alliance. It was only a matter of time before we joined The Foreign Division (February 2007). Initially we were involved in two minor wars, which ended in resolute victory for our side.
From that point onward, our nation was able to persue a peaceful policy and focus on the more important matters that brought us to the Cyberverse in the first place: amicable interaction and economic growth. For our new alliance, we have since served as: Minister of Economic Affairs, Minister of Immigration, Deputy Minister of Defense, Ambassador to the Grand Global Alliance, as well as Lead Forum Administrator and graphic designer.
On Oktober 22nd, 2008, the grand nation of Orioni ceased to exist. A misunderstanding about the expiration date of tax collection caused a national tragedy that swiped the nation off the map. Numerous attempts were made to correct the error, but to no avail: admin knows no mercy.
Alas, our story in the cyberverse comes to a close. May it be a lesson to you all.
Having lost our nation but wanting to stay active in the community, we became more interested in improving the overall community throughout Cyber Nations. In the past, we had worked with Admin and moderators to improve the pageload speed of both the game and the forum. Many of our suggestions were implemented, and we continue to have a keen interest in website performance.
We also endeavoured to create several new and/or improved forums for active alliances.
- We created a new ZetaBoards-compatible theme for TFD, which did not end up being used. However, it was quite an interesting experience to work with the ZetaBoards CMS, which is a real step up from working with InvisionFree. (August 2008)
- Furthermore, we helped out a beginning alliance called the Democratic Open Community to setup their forums and create a visual identity suitable for branding. (June 2009)
- The latest project we worked on is an improved version of the original TFD-theme for the Simple Machines Forum CMS. (January 2010)
