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.

As an Australian, I think it would be 'Fair' to have an Australian faction. Not being ungrateful for an awesome game but I believe in a game like army and the Middle Eastern maps used, Australia has definitely earned its place in a game such as SQUAD. If the Founders consider this, I will be able to provide detailed information on the current Combat Ensemble (the Sentinel Soldier) used by Australian Troops and the weapons also used. This is just an idea, no dramas if it won't happen. Thanks
OWI Official Multiplay.com [Sydney AUS] #1 As some of you may of seen OWI & Mulitplay have kindly provided an Official Sydney, Australian server which is run by myself and afew other members well known throughout the squad online community. It has been running the past month with many well received comments about server performance and admins dealing with any issues quickly to allow members to enjoy their time unhindered. Please join the Squad - Australia / New Zealand steam group to keep up to date with events, announcements and everything else. You can also get into contact with the admins through the steam group or more quickly through our discord https://discord.gg/4XFv68y -- This server is not run by any members of clans or gaming communities to allow for even, unbiased decisions.
Hey all super stoked to have picked up this game and looking to get more involved in the community. I am sure more than a few Aussies would have heard my frantic cries to not give up as I am extracting that splinter from your foot. ;) I am new to this style of fps gaming but come from other team based games; dota2 & WoW where I am more then comfortable to take leadership roles. Over the next few days I will be endeavouring to take the SL role on so if you see me on the squad screen, please don't hesitate to join if you are willing to put up with a noob (but rather enthusiastic) SL. Of course I will remain active as a medic still. ;D You can find me on the AU BigD servers and occasionally the US servers early mornings. Cheers CHICKHEN
We have been following the development of squad closely since its announcement. Finally we can see the light at the end of the tunnel!! AMG is an Australia and New Zeland based clan/community and we are looking for new recruits for our own clan, or already formed clans to join the community! Already formed clans are welcome to advertise their groups on our forums, and we can set up private sections of the forum for your use. We also have a teasmpeak server and can create a section for your use. Clan leaders may be asked to help moderate forums, teamspeak and in the future our game servers. Find our forums to register your interest: http://www.australianmadegaming.net/ Details for our Teamspeak and all of our other game servers are able to be found in there. Hope to hear from you guys!
This isnt a clan its just a steam group for Aussies and Kiwis to join, i know its abit early having a steam group but when it comes to the steam release there should be a fair few members. So it will be an easy way to find guys to group up with and expand your clan/community http://steamcommunity.com/groups/SquadAUNZ#members -------------------- As a side note if your looking for a bunch of mates to have a game with every now and again, not take things to serious and yet still enjoy the game check us out =] We have alot of experience within the Arma 3 milsim community so we know a think of two about communication. We are converting to Squad and once it goes early access on steam our numbers will grow. We believe in teamwork and tactics but most of all remembering that its a game, fun and talking shit to each other is apart of it aswell. Requirements: 18+ Microphone Teamspeak Sense of humour http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Mwahxoxo

Hey Gents, I'm not a part of a clan, nor looking to start one, I'm not adverse to joining one either; but all I'm looking to achieve here, is to have an initial meeting ground where we could possibly fill out a few squads with fellow Aussies. Hows about a bit of a roll call who's in Australia and when you're likely to be online after the beta opens up? Myself, I'm in WA. I usually get some serious play time Friday or Saturday nights, starting around 7.30pm (9.30pm EST, currently). I play games during other times in the week, but for much shorter periods that what I'm willing to commit on a Friday or Saturday night. So yeah, if you're keen to stack some Australia into a squad; drop a line here and we can try to arrange some cohesive play times. Cheers.
