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.

Mid-West Coast Tac posted a topic in Teams & ClansMidwest Coast Tactical Veteran Server Server Rules Listed below are some basic rules for the server. If you are found in violation of any of these rules you will be subject to being kicked or banned from our server. These are in place to provide a fun and healthy playing environment for all of those on Midwest Coast Tactical. Generally the admin will first provide a warning before any action is taken, but they are not required to. This is a veteran server for players that have at least 200+ hours in game. With this server our goal is to provide a solid playing environment for more serious players. We understand the frustration of holding the new guy’s hand while trying to assault FOB Papanov. With this said, this server will have more strict rules. Please make sure you read all of these rules before playing in the server. If you have any problems please jump on our server discord and talk to one of the admins to resolve the issue. Midwest Coast Tactical Official Discord: https://discord.gg/jssMcp7 Do not team kill for any reason If you are having a problem with another player, then report it to the admin. Don't just start team killing. It is not worth you getting banned over something stupid. If you have been purposely attacked by a fellow teammate, then report him/her to the admin. If you accidentally team kill another player, then acknowledge it in the "ALL CHAT" so the admin doesn't kick or ban you. Do no shoot or camp at the enemy's main base Do not lay in wait for the enemy to roll out of the protected zone to destroy them. This includes placing IEDs just outside of the enemy main. Do not use your main base's protected zone as a shield to attack enemy players If the admin warns you to back away from the enemy main, do it. Do not cheat or glitch Report anyone cheating or any glitches that have been found to the admin If a player is found in violation of this, then he/she will be banned Do not insult other players We are all adults, mostly, but don't be an asshole. We are all here to have a good time and play the game If you are having problems with another player please report it with an admin. This includes grieving, ammo spamming at FOBs, and all forms of trolling. Don't be a toxic person Do not be racist to another player We have ZERO-TOLERANCE when it comes to racism and discrimination on this server. Violators will be permabanned Report all incidents of discrimination of any kind to the admin. Do not spam in the text, local, squad, or command chat Communication is extremely important in Squad. If you are blocking comms, then you are hurting your squad's ability to win the fight. This includes spamming music in any of the chats. I am sure you think you have great taste in music, but you don't. Do not provide intel to the enemy team Ghosting is a problem. We cannot easily combat this, so we have to rely on the honor system with this. This includes stating information about your team in the "ALL CHAT" regardless if it is correct information or not. This will result in a ban Do not sabotage your own team in anyway Why are you even playing the game at this point? This will result in a ban Squad Leaders are Required to use a microphone Communication is Squad is extremely vital, without a mic a Squad Leader will be ineffective in providing commands or situational awareness to he/her fellow soldiers Admins are free to kick/ban anyone that they feel necessary to protect the integrity of their server and community as long as this does not interfere with other administration guidelines. Players are required to have at least 200+ hours in Squad to play on this server. Although with rule may not be strictly enforced, if you are showing incompetence on the battlefield you may be subject for a kick. No “noobs” allowed. Work together as a squad/ team SL’s can request that an individual is kicked for disobedience. If you feel like lone wolfing it, then join our public server. Listen to your SL SL’s have the right to kick anyone from their squad for any reason. Join a Squad or make a new one. Players that are unassigned will be removed from the server. AFK Players will be removed from the server. Team Structure Each team is structured with 3 9-Man Squads and 1 3-man Command/ Logistical Squad Those not adhering to this rule are subject to being kicked. The purpose for this structure is to mimic the competitive side of Squad and help prepare players for competitive games Serious gaming. We are in it to win it. Players should not expect admins to balance out games based on player skill. Players should expect a variety of game modes from invasion, insurgency, and infantry maps. This server will not cater to players who are not willing to learn the different game modes.
