Forum Rules 07/06/2016Introduction The Squad Team reserves the right to edit, update, add and remove rules at any time. Applicable rules extend to the PM system. Your PMs are private, but the Squad Team may be informed about unacceptable PM content by the receiving party. Section I: Posting Rules §1 Show Respect This community can only work if we all respect each other. To that end, it is imperative that any time you engage with another user, either directly or indirectly, you show them respect with the content of your post. In particular refrain from flaming, insulting, abusing, taunting, racism, and other similar types of actions towards other forum users. §2 Attitude & Behavior Poor attitude and behavior are the most common ways a negative / unsafe environment is created and perpetuated. As such that kind of behavior will not be allowed on these forums. Please be mindful of this rule when posting personal positions and opinions regarding topics which could be considered contentious in nature. As a rule of thumb, keep your posts civil in nature, and refrain from making posts that are likely to incite arguments and create a negative environment. As a privately hosted web forum we reserve the right to maintain an environment that we are happy the majority of our players are comfortable with. §3 Swearing While we will not strictly moderate every little swear that occurs, please try to avoid excessive bad language. The moderation reserves the right to remove rants and unsuitable content at any time. §4 Illegal Topics
Prohibited topics include, but are not limited to: Piracy, drugs (including cannabis), pornography, religion, racism, sexism, homo/trans -phobic content, videos and images showing violent death or serious injury, ‘spam threads’, hacking & griefing (endorsement thereof), religion, politics, etc. Prohibition may be suspended for some threads if they are found to be suitable by the Moderation (such as scientific debate).
If there is doubt, the Moderation Team can decide whether a topic is considered illegal. §5 Attitude towards Squad and the Development Team
As per §1 and §2, keep in mind to be respectful and reasonable, not only towards all users of the forum, but also towards the Squad Team and towards any ideas and content and the game itself. Criticism is welcome, but if it is not constructive and/or if it is offensive, the Moderation may need to step in. Please refrain from posting if you are upset, angry or drunk, or you may be punished for things you wouldn’t have otherwise written, which is not in anyone's interest. §6 Language & Legibility
Please post only in English. Non-English content (including non-legible content) may be removed. If you see someone posting in another language because s/he apparently does not speak English, please report their post - if you can, you may reply in their language to explain their question, but please do translate their and your message so it can be reviewed by the Moderation. ‘Hiding’ insults in non-English posts will be punished harshly. Posts written largely in ‘leetspeak’ or full of spelling / grammatical errors may be treated like non-English content. This rule does not extend to PMs. §7 Forum structure & Search
Please ensure when posting a new thread, that the thread is located inside the correct forum section. Check all forum section titles to judge where your thread should belong. Threads created in the wrong forum section will be moved or deleted.
Before posting a new thread, please make use of the forum search to find older threads about the same topic. In doubt, it is recommended to rather post in an existing thread, unless that thread is years out of date. However, do not bump old threads without adding a new question / answer / insight that wasn’t in that thread before - use common sense. §8 Thread Titles
Please name your thread appropriately; the subject title should sum up / explain the content in the thread. If you fail to name your thread properly (such as ‘Hey!’ or ‘Check this out!’ or ‘Help!’), we will either rename or lock the topic. Repeated offense may lead to infractions. The practice of using CAPITALS only in your thread title is not allowed and will be edited or the thread will simply be deleted. Strange or abnormal Unicode characters should be excluded from thread titles for the sake of being distracting and unnecessary.
§9 Thread Capitalization
Please ensure that your post is not in all CAPITALS, as this is not allowed. Any threads posted in all caps will subsequently be removed from the forum. Repeated offenses may lead to infractions against your account. This practice is not approved or accepted here.
§10 Images in posts
When posting images, mind the following restrictions:
.gifs will be allowed and may be removed by Staff if deemed necessary.
Maximum size for images is 1280x1024.
Do not include more than ~1 large image per paragraph of text, unless in image collection / announcement threads. Link to further images.
Consider posting thumbnails. You may post a few more images per post if they are reasonably small, the details are for the Moderation to judge. §11 The use of BBCode
It is allowed to use the BBCode in your posts. Over usage is not allowed. You may use the Bold in a reasonable manner but not for the whole text body. You may use the size feature but in a limited reasonable manner. You may not use any of the additional fonts at all. Color may be used to high light a point but again, not for the whole text body. Moderators will be watching for misuse and will edit when required without giving notice. Continued disregard for this rule will result in Moderator action in the form of warnings. §12 Complaints of Server/Admin Abuse Reports of server/admin abuse will not be posted publicly. All reports concerning this type of behavior should be place in the appropriate sub-forum. http://forums.joinsquad.com/forum/241-report-server-admin-abuse/ All posts made outside of this area will be be removed. Section II: Reporting & Moderation §1 Reporting Posts
There is a Post Report system in place. If you notice a post that violates forum rules, simply use the exclamation mark icon below the users avatar image to send a report to the Moderation. We will then review this post. Your report will not be made public and cannot be linked to your person by anyone outside of the Squad Team. You will not be punished for using the Report system even if the report was false, unless you repeatedly abuse the system to spam it.
Do not ‘report’ posts by replying directly in public to them. In case of spambots, this prompts them to respond in turn, spamming the forum further. This also fuels flame wars and arguments. §2 Reporting Moderators
Moderators are subject to the same forum rules (and some additional rules / exceptions). If you think that a Moderator has treated you unfairly or is otherwise breaking forum rules, please PM the Lead Moderator or any Administrator. Do not accuse Moderators in public, the Squad Team will treat every complaint seriously and it is in our interest to discipline or remove Moderators who are known to break forum rules. §3 Respect Squad Team members and Moderators
Do not ignore or argue against Admin, Moderator or Dev instructions on the forum. If you have a complaint, as per §2, please inform the Team in private. You are expected to follow orders given by the Moderation, Administration and Development Team, and it is necessary for smooth running of the forum to respect their decisions. Being stubborn or ignoring warnings will lead to harsher punishments - however, we do not tolerate Moderator / Admin abuse of power / privileges, so do not hesitate to inform other Team members if you feel treated unfairly. §4 Bans and multiple accounts
If your account is temporarily or permanently banned, do NOT create another account. Bypassing a ban will result in further action, and a permanent ban of all of your accounts.
You are not allowed to have more than one account for any reason. If you share an internet connection with another user who has their own account, it might happen that this account is incorrectly identified as a secondary account - please get in touch with the Moderation or Administration to resolve such issues.

Scince the last update, we got a very powerfull role on battlefield: the combat engineers. They do lots of funny stuff, like digging faster, c4 enemy radios and placing mines against vehicles. They are the cancer of the roads, stopping the enemy to attack... ...only the enemy.... ...for hell, no! My last 3 rounds I have played, I placed 10 mines on critical points on the map. 5 (!) mines took out my teams own vehicles, because the f(§?#ing driver was not watching the road! In general mines kill more random noob teammate-players than enemies. Therfore I am wishing for these things: - Mine-TK are not counted as TK for the player placing them - Vehicle driver gets time-punishment on respawn timer for killing him and the poor souls inside his vehicle. - Vehicle driver gets the teamkills on his soul - Admins need to know, who is/was the driver of a vehicle, for finding out, which player is not able to read the minimap
Perhaps using the supplies for AT-mine fields would be something? Maybe in rows of 5, taking quite a bit of shoveling before it gets finished. Very few classes in the game have AT-mines, and you have to place them individually, in addition to digging them to the ground. The classes are usually on the opposite side of actual military units. It is realistic, to put them down individually, but it could also be put down in rows like the usual build-able thing, as well as free them for all sides to use. Real-life militaries use anti-tank mines. I'm not sure if it wasn't added, because the IED's on cars and bikes would become rather redundant or what was the deal. Another addition to this could be a rope the 5 mines are attached to, that could be pulled from behind cover on the way of a rolling tank. Tested this in the shooting range, so unless I made a mistake somewhere it should be correct. On an unrelated note. Peer-to-peer shooting range would be nice too.
Is it possible to update the game logic and how it attributes TEAMKILLS for mines? Currently, if a player runs over a friendly mine the teamkill(s) get counted towards the scout that placed the mine. This is an unwarranted penalty to the scout. Especially, when/where the mines are marked on the map for friendly players. I've even seen cases where people intentionally run over the mines. Sometimes, causing scout to be automatically kicked from server. This is broken logic. Here's the suggestion: Change the code logic to attribute the death as a suicide (to the player that runs over the mine) If there are passengers in the vehicle, the additional deaths are then team kills (attributed to the driver, not the scout). Benefits of change: Encourage vehicle drivers to check map for friendly mines. Assigns additional passenger deaths to driver accordingly, as the responsible party for passenger live(s). Prevents abuse by penalizing the abuser, not the person playing the role as expected. Thanks,
I think it would be a cool addition and it would balance the Insurgent/Militia team more if we had Mines/IEDs triggered by stepping on them. They would greatly help both teams and they would be awesome. Many times US soldiers have stepped on a weird looking "rock" only to blow up a milisecond after. I would personally love those. One good mine, a full squad tightly knit together and one man to step on it. Amazing.
By stackable , the IED starts of with one mortar round for example and the more you dig , the more mortar rounds you add to it ( perhaps it might be only for insurgents where you can add more, to add some dynamics to gameplay) So the IED becomes "stronger" the more you dig , maybe up to 5 stages ( 5 mortar rounds?) Hopefully the IEDs become stronger because it couldnt even destroy a logi truck one time i tried it. And so if other factions have a different kind of IED based off C4s or whatnot , then maybe specifically for insurgents they can have a really large ied with this "stackable" version of IEDs
It would be great to put ranks in Squad. They shouldn't be so sofisticated like in Battlefield or COD. Just ranks like 1st, 2nd sergeant, captain, officer etc. With level one you could use all weapons but you couldnt be a squad leader or commader (if you create this role,it would be legendary). So that we dont have noobs in high roles. And maybe orientations like army and one for armored vehicles etc. You could swich branches when ever you want but you could "specialize" in only one so that evryone can see it. You really shouldnt put air vehicles because it would be really overcrowded. And if you put vechiles , you need to adept maps so that vechiles can drive normaly. And it would be also great to put mines and mortars in game. And I almost forgot, you should make more types of squads, like support, reacon, fire-team, and normal one. And it could be of course more than one of one type in the team. Wouldnt be great if we are going to have Squad like this. What you, Players and Developers, think about this. I know that you have at least year or two to even start working on anything from this list but if you could put anything from this in the game I would really appriciate it. Sorry for bad language. :)
