      Forum Rules   07/06/2016

      Introduction   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.

  1. Server name BB | Blood Bound Server (UK/EU) Server location London, UK Server slots 80 / 3 reserved About: Blood Bound began life as a Project Reality clan 2 years ago, playing together in many games, forming a tight community of individuals that dipped their toes in several games together; PR always being the central hub everyone would congregate around. After lying dormant for a while, some members had joined other clans and communities in Squad. Some of the of the key members of Blood Bound were in a clan that unfortunately disbanded, which prompted two of them - Hudson and Ark - to gather some of the people in that clan that were left high 'n dry after they disbanded together, and bring them in to Blood Bound to breathe new life into the clan, and start up Blood Bound's own Squad community and server. We're back from yesteryear, rising like a phoenix from the ashes! We welcome any and all to join our community for some laughs and good games together - hop on our Discord some time! If you like playing with us and are thinking of joining the clan, get in touch with one of our members and we'll have a chat Discord: Blood Bound Reporting a player: Hop on our Discord to get in touch with an admin ASAP in our #contact_an_admin channel and tag the @Admins provide the nickname and SteamID64 / Steam profile permalink (read the pinned post in the channel for an explanation) of the offending player, so we can identify them tell us what team they're on, and if possible, in which squad explain in detail what the player did if possible, provide any relevant evidence, such as footage of the incident (uploaded as an unlisted Youtube video) or relevant screenshots - video evidence being preferred Appealing a ban: Please visit our ban appeals sub-forum, check out the sample format provided, and make a new thread following that format. You can sign in easily using your Steam login on the top-right - no need to make a forum account! = Server Rules = We're all about teamwork, good communication, and providing a good atmosphere to keep things fun. If you have any questions or concerns, you can post a comment here - though joining our Discord is of course the quickest way to get in touch. Admins reserve the right to remove anyone from the server that is deemed detrimental to the general atmosphere on the server or the level of teamwork / gameplay on the server at their discretion. Admin decisions and requests are to be respected at all times. If you wish to discuss such, please do so in our #server_feedback channel on our Discord after following the admin's request. 1. No racism, sexism, or discrimination of any sort will be tolerated Any such chat - whether in text chat, or over comms - will be met with a permanent ban. This includes offensive player or squad names. 2. Do not insult each other We understand that things can get hectic and in the heat of the moment, tempers may flare and arguments can happen, but this does not mean we'll tolerate an argument only escalating due to direct insults being flung back and forth. Try to keep the atmosphere on the server enjoyable. If you can't resolve it - drop it and play on. 3. Do not spam text chat or comms Spamming things over comms and disrupting the game, or clogging up text chat will be first warned for, then punished. 4. Do not recruit for your clan or advertise websites or streams on the server Self-explanatory - don't advertise for your own Discord / community / clan or try to recruit members while on the server. Don't advertise your stream, either. Don't advertise for things like skin gambling websites, either. This includes having a website as part of your nickname. 5. Don't ever intentionally team-kill, for any reason whatsoever - including in retaliation If you're intentionally team-killed (for example, after an argument), call the attention of an admin and let them handle it. Please apologise for any accidental TKs in all chat so admins know they were accidental. 6. Do not camp enemy main bases If your team manages to cap the enemy's last cap - defend that cap, but don't advance on the enemy's main base. This rule includes planting mines / IEDs too close to enemy main bases; as a rule of thumb, keep mines / IEDs 250m away from enemy main bases. Due to some maps being quite small compared to others, the closest allowed proximity of mines / IEDs to enemy mains may be relaxed a bit on maps like Sumari, where they are allowed right up 'till the "Checkpoint" cap zone. When in doubt, ask an admin. If an admin requests you to pull back with a vehicle that you're pinning the enemy's exits from their main base with, please do so - usually, the enemy team will be expected to use different exits from their main and adjust to the situation on the battlefield, but on some maps / layers, this can be problematic (think of Narva's RU main base location), and the admin team's first priority is always maintaining a decent level of gameplay and atmosphere on the server. 7. Squad Leaders are required to speak English, have a mic (and use it), and actively play for relevant objectives We expect SLs to cooperate with one another in command comms, and make an effort to lead their squad. We also expect them to not hinder the team by wasting assets trying to fight in areas not in play or relevant to the team's success (not active in or around attack / defense points or enemy FOBs, or on the way there) - the exception to this, of course, being smaller specialised squads like armour or mortar squads. 8. Do not make a squad unless you intend to lead it Don't make a squad, then leave it and make another - this doesn't help "seed" squads, but just causes chaos at the start of a match. Don't make a squad then pass off SL to someone else, either. Also, don't make a squad solely to get a certain kit. 9. Squad Leaders may kick anyone from their squad for any reason Please try to be civil when kicking people from your squad. If you're kicked from a squad, please don't argue about it, but join a different squad. If the reason you were kicked conflicts with one of our other server rules (racism / sexism / discrimination), please report it so the offending SL can be dealt with. 10. Do not lock your squad with less than 4 people in it The minimum size for general infantry squads is 4. Specialised squads may be smaller, but must be named according to their intended role or the assets they intend to claim. Examples of such squads allowed are a dedicated logistics squad, a mortar squad, or an SPG / 30mm / Bradley / Warrior squad, which may all be smaller than 4 people. Bear in mind that regardless of your intended squad size and purpose, you will still be expected to cooperate and communicate with other squads / the rest of your team, and that you should still be using your assets effectively (referring to potential asset wastage). 11. Respect specialised, named squads - don't take claimed assets Specialised squads, such as squads named "LOGI", "BTR 30MM", "APC" or "IFV", have the first claim on the vehicles named. First come, first serve applies - if there are multiple specialised squads trying to claim the same vehicle(s), the first squad to have created their named squad takes precedence. In the case of such squads being made within a very short time of one another, we expect SLs of these squads to fairly, and maturely come to an agreement concerning these assets. In the case of a squad claiming several assets to fulfill a defined role (such as APC transport, IFV support), we expect you to have enough people in your squad to properly man these vehicles. Please see the next rule for more on this. 12. Do not one-man APCs and IFVs - these require a 2-man crew at all times Techies and light transport / support vehicles (BRDM / MRAP) that don't require a crewman kit to operate may be one-manned. The exceptions to this are all MTLB variants, which - while not requiring a crewman kit to operate - are APCs, thus also require a 2-man crew at all times. 13. Do not grief, troll, or waste assets Intentionally getting friendly assets destroyed, "throwing" a match, driving a logi into enemy-held territory, or having your entire squad head off to a part of the map entirely not in play to spend the whole match building a giant, pointless FOB together are all examples of behaviour that breaks this rule. 14. Do not share any sort of team intel with the enemy team This includes sharing friendly positions, ticket counts, or anything else that only your team knows / can see. 15. Abusing exploits to gain an advantage over others or using cheats of any sort will result in a ban Hiding in a rock that lacks player clipping so you can't get hit would be an example of abusing an exploit. Use of cheats will be brought to the attention of OWI, and result in a full game ban. 16. Ghosting and stream sniping will be met with a permanent ban 17. Inactive / unassigned players will be kicked Please join a squad if you're unassigned. Unassigned players will be seen as AFK and kicked to make room for others, accordingly. Seeding rules If the server player count is lower than 40 players, the following seeding rules are also in effect. Once there are more than 40 players on the server, a broadcast will be put out stating the game is live. 1. Do not take out enemy HABs / FOBs Keep fighting to the middle caps. 2. Don't build FOBs / HABs on middle caps (as those will be fought over) 3. Do not use offensive vehicles Only use transport and logistics vehicles. 4. Do not use mortar tubes, HMG emplacements, or other offensive FOB emplacements Enjoy your time with us! Drop us a line if you have any concerns. Game on!

Please see the next rule for more on this. Please do not "hog" assets, and claim the same ones several rounds in a row; be a good sport and allow others a chance to use them in further rounds, also. We expect to not have to police this, so please be considerate of other players. 12. Do not one-man APCs and IFVs - these require a 2-man crew at all times - Techies and light transport / support vehicles (BRDM / MRAP) that don't require a crewman kit to operate may be 1-manned (this includes the Insurgent AA truck). - APCs and IFVs require a 2-man crew (all variants, including MTLBs). - MBTs require a 3-man crew (driver; gunner; commander). 13. Do not grief, troll, or waste assets Intentionally getting friendly assets destroyed, "throwing" a match, driving a logi truck into enemy-held territory, or having your entire squad head off to a part of the map entirely not in play to spend the whole match building a giant, pointless FOB together are all examples of behaviour that breaks this rule. This includes deserting vehicles in the field, whether they're APCs / IFVs, or logi trucks - do not treat them as disposable; treat them as valuable assets to protect and make use of. 14. Do not share any sort of team intel with the enemy team This includes sharing friendly positions, ticket counts, or anything else that only your team knows / can see. 15.
