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.

Note: Raven Wing [wF / RW] is an English-speaking group in whiteFOX-clan, which is what this recruitment post is for. If you are interested in joining the French-speaking group in whiteFOX, check out this link. whiteFOX is a structure that aims to bring together groups of players from all European countries and wants to invest in the competition on Squad. Formed in February 2016 by the gathering of the teams Les Chats Pirates [LCP] and Yellow Ants [YA]. A recent addition is the team Raven Wing [RW]. This assamble of players defined its goal as being ambitious competitors that seek victory. That being said, we also wish to retain the fun and casual aspects of the game. Our first steps in competing were done in March 2016 when we played the first Squad Tournament (SquadLeague). After 4 matches, whiteFOX placed 3rd over 14 teams, thereby proving itself to be a competitor to be reckoned with. Since then we've been amongst the most active clans on the competitive scene, playing matches against other clans on a weekly basis. A video broadcast of the 3rd place final from SquadLeague can be found here. WhiteFOX clan trailer (happens to be in French since one of our squads are French-speaking) What is Raven Wing? Raven Wing is a group within the clan whiteFOX. It was formed in August 2016, by Pliskin (Norwegian), snikeren (Norwegian) and S0NNy (Austrian), and grew out of the already established groups within whiteFOX. We accept players from all around Europe, presuming you speak English. Description of Raven Wing Our style of gameplay is influenced by fast-pased shooters such as Counter-Strike and the Battlefield-series. As such its characterised by aggressivity, speed and coordination. However, we also very much enjoy the slower paced gameplay of games such as PR, and that which is increasingly encouraged through Squad itself. That being said, we can be recognized as players who take the initiative, and who live by the adage "the best defense is a good offense". We have a no non-sense approach to our in-game communication, maximizing the usefulness of our comms. We wish to adopt all tactics and strategies that works and are effective in the current metagame of Squad, and discard that which doesn't. And to readapt again once the game changes. Although matches against other clans is where we get our adrenaline kick from, we don't shy away from fooling around on public servers, or even try-harding to pull off some nice teamplay on public servers! I think we don't take ourselves too seriously, and like to tease each other whenever the opportunity present itself.. We are competing in the current Squad Masters league, and we play matches on at least a weekly basis. There is no obligation to join every match/training that we have, but we do expect that you join in on the events at least once a week. The clan offers utilities such as TeamSpeak3, Squad servers and also tools to help coordinate all the members in the clan (counting around 35 total in whiteFOX, of which 15 are in Raven Wing). Recruitement We don't recruit based on age, we value maturity and respect for others. These are prerequisites and we won't recruit you if these are not present, even if you have amazing skills. For us, the competitive spirit is key, and so is the sense for teamplay. Prerequisites Reasonable ping to EU servers + timezone allowing to play events starting 19 UTC A minimum of availability (1 or 2 events a week, in the evening) Maturity and respect for others Love of the game (long-term commitment) Understands English, and has a certain ability to speak it What we are looking for A minimum of aiming and reflex abilities, and game sense A wish to be part of and to play as a team A willingness and ability to adapt and learn A competitive spirit Background in other FPS titles is of course appreciated, and we can help you get into Squad if you come and play with us!
