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 was banned for exploits. was knocked out. revived, and fell through the floor. couldn't get out. I told my squad lead and he said to re-spawn. I don't know how to re-spawn without death. was then banned for exploits. Im not a cheater and want to play fair with everyone. please remove the ban.
Okay so what happend is i got banned on a server. I dont know how the ef or even how. But i'm really confused i dont do annoy people Play on casual mode and dont team kill anybody. how the eff can somebody explain this to me? Is this some how by accident that some one had the same steam name as me? I've been playing there like not that much. Its free candy van.
Hi guys, yesterday I got banned from West Coast Tactical #1 because I accidentally killed my teammates with my IED's, even though I told them to run away because I would set it off, they wouldn't listen. Now my question is, how long is my ban, and if it's permanent, can I send a ban appeal? (in case you're a WCT admin, PM me on discord [ kickedbyconsole#6717 ] and I can send you all the footage from that match.) Thanks in advance.
Hi guys. So, I was just recently banned from your Squad server, like 10 min ago or so. I have a pretty good reason why, but I wasn't given any warning or notification. I would like to appeal this ban as I rather enjoy playing on your server. I promise not to post any vulgar language in the all chat again. Best, LiNDa.
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
Hey, I got banned on Squad today, didnt even get into a server or anything. Well, it didnt tell me I was EAC banned right away so heres what happened. So I bought this game last night (Sunday) and played with my friend for 6 hrs, no issues. I loaded today and during the loading I got a memory error during the start up. I closed it, reloaded, no problem. I tried joining a server, doesnt load, doesnt give me any messages, just doesnt load and goes back to server screen. I tried joining another, "Server Full", got that on a few servers so ok no problem. I tried joining a server with 46/72 and it doesnt load. Its not giving me messages or anything. I close the game, I get the memory error again. I start looking online for issues joining servers so I verified my cache in the game (I havent tried reinstalling yet, I see some people found that fixed their game?). After 20 minutes or so of leaving it, It tried joining again, "Server full" next server "Banned by EAC", thought it might be a mistake, tried another server, no messaged...tried another for the hell of it "Server full" and then just quit to do some more research and I got the memory error again. I have sent an email to EAC but can the memory error cause all these issues? Steam ID:http://steamcommunity.com/id/gameover_carbon/ I hacked years ago so I wont deny that but I dont anymore. COD 2 and CS were the games. Cheers, Royal EDIT: Tried verifying cache - No change Using Windows Defender AV Screenshot of EAC Ban Screenshot of Error that showed up just before getting EAC ban when inital loading of game and have been getting it even since when I quit now.
Hi guys, like you read from the title, do trainers lead to ban?? ...i use them often for fun or to finish the story of some games more quicly ...recently i was banned, i dont have many hours in the game about 27, double that or more befor steam release, im a supporter ...how can i get help?
Glocknade posted a topic in Off-Topic DiscussionPeople we're asking for an alternative to Battlefield Play4Free (BFP4F). So, I created a forum account. I recommended them to download Battlefied 2 because it is now freeware and because BFP4F is basicly BF2 but downsized and P2W. I also recommend a great little mod called Project Reality (ever heard of it?) to them, because I like to spread the word of how awesome PR is. Well, about 10 minutes after the initial post I try to log back in to see if anyone has replied and I'v already been banned by a moderator for what the site called "Piracy". Yes, my opinion on a game to play after EA's shitty BF2 clone stops being supported this July was banned for piracy. I mean, they can't even make money off of that game anymore. It's not like I was stealing business anyway. Fuck EA. The end.
