      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.

  2. New Discord RCON Bot

    Hello everyone, I've been working on an RCON bot that allows you to manage your squad server from Discord. I did this simply as an experiment with Discord bots and many of you may not find it useful outside of mobile server management via the Discord app. The available commands are as follows: (prefix can be changed) !bot help {Command (optional)} !bot clear !match broadcast {Message} !match restart !match end !map list !map change {MapName} !map next {MapName} !player list !player ban {Name, SteamId, or PlayerId} {BanLength} {Reason} !player kick {Name, SteamId, or PlayerId} {Reason} !player swap {Name, SteamId, or PlayerId} This was built pretty quickly and may be prone to errors. Feel free to leave bug reports on GitHub or here. GitHub Setup instructions in Readme Screenshot
  3. Howdy folks, There's been a lot of discussion about RCON lately. We've just released our web-based RCON tool for Squad. We support a few other games (ARK, ArmA, & Rust) and we hope to bring a wide variety of admin tools to Squad. Some of our key features are: VAC ban detection on any player Extensive player logging Admin logging, admin permissions A fix for the listplayers command (we found a way to get around the character problems) Triggers to automate routine tasks (auto-kick/ban players with VPNs, VAC bans, etc) And many more. For a more comprehensive list of features, you can visit our about page at: https://www.battlemetrics.com/rcon/about . We currently support free trials for seven days every three months so that you can check out our features without making any up-front commitment. We've had many Squad communities test the tool and the reviews are entirely positive so far. Please let us know your thoughts and we hope you find this tool useful! Note: some of the best work we do is with chat logging. When Squad supports chat for RCON, we will promptly add it to our features. Feel free to reply here with any comments, suggestions, or feedback. We are always looking to improve our services.
  4. Hi Devs, There seem to be a bug in Squad's (or EU4) implementation of RCON, mainly for the `ListPlayers` command. For context RCON response contain an header with the size of the body in bytes. Also most response send text in ASCII (or at least single byte fixed length encoding). But some exotic characters in player names can make the server answer with UTF-16 (2 bytes per char). It's annoying on it's own to detect, but ok-ish. The problem is that when it happens, the response lenght header doesn't account for multi-byte encoding , so effectively the response body is twice bigger than advertised. I managed to develop workarounds for this bug, but I figured I might as well report it. The workaround: https://github.com/koraktor/steam-condenser/issues/287#issuecomment-283901089 (Ark might possibly have the same issue).
  5. RCON doesn't seem to work with v9. Using TCPView, it seems SquadServer doesn't listen to the port I have in rcon.cfg. According to the Squad Hosting and rcon discord, I'm not the only one having this problem.
  6. Hi, I m server admin for my group and i m looking for information about Squad's dedicated servers. I m not familiar with UR4 games. There will be Rcon protocol for dedicated servers ? There will be a way to interact with the server at distance with a rcon tool as B3 for exemple. Thanks by advance Greats. Edit for moderators : Sry i think i m in wrong part of the forum ! Feel free to move my post.
  7. Hi, I know the devs probably haven't thought about this too much and it isn't a priority at all, but will a RCON interface be supported for Squad servers? For anyone who doesn't know, RCON is a protocol invented by Valve for admins to interact with their server without having to join their servers, and this can be done on iOS devices, computer, anything with a client really. This means, anyone will be able to write a client and commands can be supported, server settings can be changed, players can be banned, plug-ins can be developed, etc... It's super useful for any hardcore admins. Here's some more info about it, it specifies Source games, but RCON has been implemented in BF, Minecraft, etc...: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Source_RCON_Protocol I'm primarily wondering because I was part of a team that wrote RCON tools and admin interfaces for Battlefield 3/4, and it'd be interested to do the same for Squad.
