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.

Recruitment Thread The RedCoats The RedCoats are a tight-knit group of gamers from around the world who aim to ensure teamwork and communication is at the core of every game we play. Formed back in 2011 as a small group of friends, they quickly made a name for themselves during Squad’s Closed Pre-Alpha stage. Since then we have evolved into an international gaming community playing a wide variety of games from RTS’ to MMO’s. The RedCoats are a unit made up varied individuals. Our age range is from 21 to 40+, with members hailing from the UK, USA, Czech Republic, Austria, Netherlands, Finland, Germany, France, Norway, Australia, Israel, Sweden and Portugal. We are a true international community but our roots are in the UK, with our name taking inspiration from British history. The RedCoats in Squad We established ourselves within the squad community very early, becoming regulars on the London servers throughout the CPA stage. It was in Squad where our numbers grew, bringing people to our squads due to the group’s characteristics. We took part in the first ever clan match in December 2015 prior to steam launch, and from there we took part in the first Community Clan Fight Night shortly after. After Squad launched on steam we hosted 4 of the most popular servers on the browser, which allowed us to facilitate some of the best gameplay around. Since then we have been a constant presence around the community, contributing to several community events and discussions. We go into games expecting nothing less than the highest standard of teamplay. Using our game knowledge, communication, discipline and tactical vision, we maintain a high-standard of gameplay which we have demonstrated across multiple events, in both competitive and noncompetitive scenes. We excel in large-scale warfare, employing intricate tactics and strategies across multiple squads which is benefited from the chemistry between our Squad Leaders who have hundreds of hours working together in-game. Despite all of this, we are a group that are known to enjoy ourselves. Players from outside of the clan always leave our squads with a good experience, and this is something we pride ourselves on. Why are we recruiting? We are looking to increase our presence within Squad, with an aim to start taking part in large clan matches again. Our main goal is to be able to field a full 50 man team once the 100p servers are released. Recruitment Process Our recruitment process has always been a precise system which has allowed us to create a group that has stuck together for years. We want to ensure that any potential new members fit within the chemistry of the group as a priority. We believe a good atmosphere between clan mates is the key to success, and we have continuously strived to ensure that all of our members can work with each other to a high level, and chemistry is the number one component in that process. The first step is either your approach or our approach of interest. We will then look for you to join us in game. We useour public discord (link at the bottom) to contact people about when we are going to jump into a game. If we feel there can be progress, we will invite you into our teamspeak and from there begin an observation phase. We will observe how you interact with the group, how you behave in game and also how you play. This period is an undetermined time and only comes to a successful end if we believe the player fits with us. We do not use an application system, nor do we give people our tag without a thorough process. You will need to have patience as a virtue, as an observation period can take anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks. This may seem like a long time but this is the best way to ensure that potential recruits have the determination and desire to join us. The only restrictions in place are that we do not accept anyone under the age of 21, you must have a solid grasp of the English language and have a working microphone. Who do we need? We have no particular roles/positions to fill. We will look to take in anyone who fits into the group and can benefit us, both gameplay wise and personality wise. One area we are actively looking to improve though is use of heavy asset. As mainly an infantry unit, we are looking to improve our use of vehicles, particularly the heavier assets within Squad right now. Activity Aside from general day to day gaming we take part in CCFN and clan scrims (24v24+). With an increase in active players we will look to facilitate this on a more consistent basis. Please note we do not demand or expect people to play a set amount of hours per week. We are a mature community with families and jobs so we appreciate people may not always be available. We do hope that members choose to join us in their spare time for banter and socialising on teamspeak.
