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) 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. Section II: Forum Signatures §1 Signature Dimensions
To avoid clutter, please make sure your signature (if you choose to have one) does not exceed the following size limit: 350x150 pixels. Your signature may consist of images, user bars and text elements, as long as the total size does not exceed 550 x 200 pixels. A small tolerance will be given, but any signature larger than the limit may at any time be deleted without prior warning. If you are not sure whether your signature is acceptable, please PM a moderator. §2 Signature Content
All rules of section 1 fully apply to your signature. We will remove signatures or parts of signatures without notice if they violate the forum rules, and infractions may be given. §3 Animated Signatures
Please refrain from using animated .gifs as signatures, they distract and clutter the forum. Section III: 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.

Hello everybody, I came to the forum after the long time and I see that many forum members has founder and backer title. I am also backer, I bought the rifleman back one year ago and I would like to know how can I get my backer title. Thank you for all your answers, RobinoSVK
Hello guys, finally I am looking forward to get the ingame Skins for the founders/Squad leader edition to work. I have redeemed the codes for Music and the SL Perks on steam and theyre listed on my Squad. In my Steam inventory i have 7 Items from squad. Founder Badge, Squad Leader Badge, 3 M4A1 Skins and 2 AK74 Skins. On another thread somebody wrote to delete all game files from steam and delete the Squad folder in %appdatalocal% (not sure if it was exactly this link, but anyway, i deleted the folder in the correct path) and re-downloaded all gamefiles and installed Squad again. I went into the came to settings and game options, but there was still nothing to select... What am I doing wrong? As you can see, my steam account is linked to this forum aswell. But I am not sure if i linked it before i redeemed the squad leader perks... I wanna hear from you, Michael
I am an original backer from when the game was being developed. I had the game on my computer but recently I had to wipe everything and start over. I lost the game and was unable to install it to steam. How can I get my product code again so I can play the game?
Howdy, I'm not sure if this is the right place but, I recently saw the email for the in-game credits thing and I followed the instructions and linked my account, and I did some more looking and, I never got my Perk Key on the 29th of April, I've thoroughly gone through my emails and I only use one email address, I still have the email when I purchased the Squad Leader tier and I've been hyped for the founder bonuses but, I don't have those bonuses yet, I don't know what to do other than post here, but I never got the Perk Key email sent out on the 29th of April. If an admin or someone can help me that'd be much appreciated, because I spent a lot of money to get the founder tier, and by a lot, I mean I'm Australian and the conversion rate is very rough, I can provide all of the purchase emails if needed because I kept all of those. On 19/08/15 I purchased the Rifleman Tier. On 14/10/15 I got the Rifleman Upgrade to Squad Leader. On 21/10/15 I got my Alpha Key as well as registered on the forum to use it and play in the Alpha. On 5/12/15 I got the Steam Key, If I recall Correctly this was the release date of Squad. then nothing regarding squad in April in my massive email history And on June 30th I got the In-game Credits email. I'd really appreciate it if one of the members could help me out with this, like I said, I spent a lot of money trying to get early access and the bonuses. And yes, I went through my emails with a fine tooth comb multiple times, it's simply not there, only thing I can think of is because I got the Rifleman tier and upgraded to Squad Leader that it didn't count but I was lead to believe it did, I was told the Upgrade was to aide those who are tight on money so they could pre-order and upgrade later.
Going to sound a little pedantic here, but it is probably worth bringing up as it hasn't been addressed in some time. As many are aware, part of the pledge rewards for backing Squad was a "Backer" or "Founder" tag here on the forums. Now that we are almost a year since funding, I have to ask, "What is the status of these tags?" I am aware that a few have already got them, but I imagine the majority of us have not. Yes, there are more important things to do, but this isn't a job that needs to be undertaken by the devs and should be seen as a goodwill measure to those who helped fund the project. Surely some of the community staff could take this service on board? It's not so much that the tags are important, just that it was a pledge reward and, as yet, it still hasn't been delivered? So, what is the go with these tags?
The tags are not something I actually care about but the Glenlivet is kicking in and got my creative juices flowing. In this thread, http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/9383-early-access-rewards/, I posted a quick mockup of my idea to have a small, discreet image that looks like a military rocker patch showing the backer status. This is what I'd like to see. A little "Backer" rocker logo. It's there, but not in your face. Discrete, yet visible. And it fits the motif of Squad. Another option I thought of would be to replace the Member status area completely with a section of slightly larger stackable rockers. I'm not a coder so I don't have any idea how much of a pain in the ass this would be to implement.
Hi all, I hope this is no extremely stupid question, but because I wasn't part of the kickstarter campaign to fund Squad I got to ask. Also sorry for my english, it's not my native language. There were some stretchgoals wich were not completed, like the british faction or helicopters. My question is were those stretchgoals aimed for the Early Access release or aimed for version 1.0? I know this might not be the smartest question but I just wanted to ask.
