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.

Hey, I really like to play on Bella´s Battleground, because I'm not with rush hour in my region and [BB] has the best ping and experience of playership during that daytime. Unluckily, I just teamkilled 6 guys with one round of mortars on Chora (my ingame name is "Scurl ♥ Squad"), because they rushed into an enemy FOB-compound that we bombarded. The mortar firing was already going for around 3-4 salvos, so it frankly wasn't my fault. Instantly banned. I expected the kick, even if I instantly went in all chat, apologizing. I wanted to reconnect, but found out I even got banned. I understand that it's set for instant kick to prevent trollers from ruining a game continuosly and that's okay. But a permanent ban seems harsh to me, because especially with mortars I've seen a lot of teamkills and especially on those smaller maps. And I guess there have been such things before and people are getting unbanned and stuff, but I also think many don't bother trying to discuss it rather than just taking another server (which I won't, because [BB] is as mentioned one of the few I can properly play on, which also is the reason I am here now). So, if theres an unban possible by any chance, I would love to get in favor of it. Also, maybe just kick or disable the player (kick from squad, no assigned team or something) until someone looks into it, before permanent banning (maybe that's happening right now?). I've not seen many excessive teamkills that would really deserve a ban, maybe around 3-4. But I don't know, maybe it's too complicated to do so, and at least I got the time and leisure to look up the forums to write this. Have a good day, Scurl
thatscot posted a topic in Software SupportPlayed squad for the first time in while, played for hours. Went out came back and when i tried to join two different servers it said i was received a ban on the 15/01/17. Which doesn't make sense since i was playing yesterday completely fine. # Thank you
Hello guys, so I was recently banned from MUMBLERINES server. My team was caught in a firefight which we won, so I thought It would be fun to put some music... I only turned it on twice for some 4 seconds and then everyone was pissed about it and it turned it off. I said that I wouldn't put it back again but I got instantly got reported by some guy who also told them I was a "12 Year old" (I'm 14). Well when I saw he said "I'm 12" I understood I'm getting kicked as I know many people there don't tolerate younger players, even 14 year olds... I got kicked then I had to wait to join the sever but then it said I was banned. I'm really sorry about it, this is the first and I hope the last time I will cause troubles. I wasn't rude, i never teamkilled or anything such on the server, and I hope I will get some help if possible.
Hi, I played today on this server and I got banned for teamkilling when on humvee. I didn't kill anyone on purpose, and I did apologize for it. On Kohat map the russians have very similar colors to americans. I understand them kicking me for being clumsy, but I don't think it's fair to get banned for this.
Hi! I accidently killed team mates with the humvee and i got banned from the server before i could explain what happened. First i was pretty sure they were friendlies then i looked away then the driver said that there were the enemies so i opened fire because i didnt see any name tags untill i killed bunch of them(probably one of them was an admin). This name tag bug is annoying and easily leads to this shit but i also think the admin who banned me is a total wanker because i didnt have a chance to say it was an accident and i had no intentions to teamkill on purpose. merry X-mas, Tequ
Hello, yesterday i received a ban on my squad via steam . And it can come in contact with an administrator or developer to know the reason if you like it . Thank you in advance for your attention. Ps: Banishment applied by the game developer Squad - View the support page
Yeah so I can't really find an official rules page or anything but I was unaware that TKing twice on the dev branch was an offense that can get you permanently banned? In all seriousness I enjoy the game and any presumed attempt to ruin the experience of other players is not on point, me and a pal were just messing around. Here is my Steam profile so you can repeal this false positive: http://steamcommunity.com/id/bigdickbitchdotcom
Hello [RIP] Server Admins, I am here to ask you for Help, I am Banned from your Server for 1 Week or more, I don't Know the reason of Ban, once I was Spamming Grenades and Killing Enemy with it and Got Kicked Twice after that, I thought that was my internet Connection Problems so I was connecting Server to Play, but then I noticed that I was Banned from the Server I thought that was a Bug, so I tried to Connect to the Server at the 2nd day, Result the Same, Tried after 3,4,5 Days, Result : The Same, Tried now and I am Still Banned from the Server. Why? I Have met one of your Admin Members I told him this and He Suggested me to go on RUSTY Server Forum so I am here.
ragekhan posted a topic in General DiscussionAlways taught squad community as above average. Until today. Was playing in Fools Road. Our team is winning. And we advanced to last cap in mine entrance. Build a super FOB there. And got attacked pretty hard. Being a sensible player myself I decided to hide somewhere inside the building where my rear and flank is covered and went to prone. Then all our teammates got killed I was left alone. And enemy rushed in. so I picked them out one by one. I was weirded out at first because I killed like 10 guys close quarter and no one seems to be able to kill me, but then again its because I thought they didn’t know my position and my rear and flanks were covered. Little did I know I was in a bug/glitch spot in mine entrance where people cant kill you.( I was probably inside of the concrete of the building; don’t ask how I don’t know) So a guy called admin and said there is hacker killing them in mine entrance. Of course they didn’t know who, and me being a good guy, said that was me and it was probably a glitch that they couldn’t kill me, and that im sorry. But mind you I have no idea that they couldn’t kill me because of that (for all i know probably they couldnt see me and it was not even a glitch/bug), thought because its my superior hiding skill and defensive mind. And the adrenaline pumping through your body when youre the last guy standing and the enemies rushed in didnt help, if you know what i mean. I then apologize to them said sorry like 5 times and went out of the mine entrance because of the unfair advantage. 2 minutes later I was banned permanently from that server. Im also probably looking at a community ban from all the other server. TLDR so long story short, if you got a glitch and killed many people don’t be a good guy say youre sorry just suicide and get the fuck out of there. Good guys finished last either way. Im not expecting the ban to be lifted, and am preparing myself for a community ban. And if this is what squad community is turning into, ive lost hope. Squad is in F&^$ing alpha stage and to ban people in accidental glitch/bug is just sad. Im very disappointed
Hello guys & girls ! All is in the title My friend will go to vacation in 2 days, and he proposed to me to use his account to test SQUAD (I want to buy it, but I must wait the Close Alpha to play ) There are a kind of NDA ("Non-Disclosure Agreement") ? I don't want to block, ban his account So my question is, Can I use his account ? Thank you for your help Best regards,
