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.

I have reformatted my pc and all my steam library is back where it should be, however Steam is asking me to purchase Squad again? any ideas? Not sure how to solve this + not being able to post in discord.. thinks the devs have it in for me :( What do I need to sort this?
David Taylor posted a topic in Questionshello! What should i do now ? I still didnt get the key. and i cant make the contact with IrOnTaXi or Litoralis. HELP ME.
Lumi posted a topic in Software SupportHi! Could a moderator please PM me and help me link my account to my prepurchase? I don't want to post the TransID here because someone might try to steal my copy.
Zerothian posted a topic in QuestionsI am an idiot and did some things wrong, I need my key sent to another email and I read in one of the sticky'd posts that messaging the support team/admins is one way to have this issue resolved but none seem to be online at the moment so I am leaving this here. I can provide any proof of purchase and ownership of the Paypal that is needed. I currently have a dispute active on Paypal which is not escalated of course, just a means to contact the seller. I added a message to the special instructions the first time I tried to purchase it but my router died and I had to go through the process again and I forgot to add the special instructions the second time around.
Okay, so I really want to buy the 70$ package to play this closed alpha and all that, but I have a huge problem. Paypal hates me and does not want to work. It's not just Squad, but the previous times. I'm not a Paypal user and it doesn't want to process my Visa Gift Card that I have and when I try to create an account it tells me that it needs a Social Security Number, my date and birth and sends all that crap through mail and I really just have no time for that. I need to know, will their be any other options that I can use so I can purchase this cause I really want to get it, but Paypal just says no on my end. Thanks for reading.
I'm currently considering to pre-puchase Squad and buy a "Squad Leader Tier Package" for $70. Really, the only reason why I havn't made my purchase, besides monetary funds, is because I'm only 15 years old. In the User Agreement it states that Offworld Industries Tier Purchase System will not accept anyone's purchase un the age of 18, with the exception of having parent involvment when purchasing content. I'm 100% fine with having my parents use their credit card and haveing payment involvment, the issue I have is with the E-Mail that will be used to pay for the content. If say for example, my father's E-Mail is inserted into the E-Mail form, will problems arise down the road in terms of pre-purchasing because his E-Mail is not the one which is registered on my steam account? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking your time to read this post.
Hello guys, Been a long time since I suggested anything new, I like to comment on others' ideas more but anyway. I had an idea, and I know it may be waaaay out there for an FPS. The idea I have is very similar to the concept that Wicca created for PR's War of the Factions Tournament http://www.prtournament.com. The basic premise is to sort of bring a RTS type gameplay into the commander role, while still having the PvP battle going on. The way this is done in PR is through a lot of work for the tournament players in the BFeditor prior to each round. But I can see things being a lot easier to figure out on UE4. The commander is given a set number of tickets to purchase assets with. Things like jets cost a ton of tickets while things like humvees or comparable vehicles cost next to none. There are clearly issues with this idea, and they may far outweigh the benefits, I just want to see how much interest there might be in making this a separate game mode. The issues I can foresee on public servers are having an incompetent or troll commander purchase useless assets, having a commander unwilling to purchase anything and therefore ruining everyone's fun or just the general restriction of having to ask someone to give you something before you can go have your fun. It would also take a ton of strategy and thought that I think some newbies and pubbers could struggle to get a hold of (but hey we all start somewhere). Obviously there are solutions to this problem such as the ability to mutiny a commander. The positives I can see brought to Squad by a system such as this are an infinitely customizable battlefield each and every round, the ability to create a more cohesive team (for instance a commander would be able to keep those times when there is only 1 infantry squad from happening by simply not spawning jets, tanks or apcs until the infantry needs are met), and the ability to allocate resources on when-needed basis (like if enemy CAS was ripping up your ground forces, you could spawn in jets and have some of your guys take control of the skies). Try not rip me a new #$%hole in the comments because I know it would be a struggle to implement and some would not enjoy it. Just let me know whether you are interested in it or not, and what you would want to see in a system like it.
