      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. As the title says, made an account on rusty in places website hoping to apply, but never received the activation email in order to log in, wasn't sure if any members frequented here and might see this. any help would be appreciated.
  2. Ban Appeal - West Coast Tactical

    Hi guys, yesterday I got banned from West Coast Tactical #1 because I accidentally killed my teammates with my IED's, even though I told them to run away because I would set it off, they wouldn't listen. Now my question is, how long is my ban, and if it's permanent, can I send a ban appeal? (in case you're a WCT admin, PM me on discord [ kickedbyconsole#6717 ] and I can send you all the footage from that match.) Thanks in advance.
  3. Admin Abuse I played on the: [RIP] RustyInPlaces UK/EU #1. My squad name was: ONLY [DDF]. I was the squad lead and was normally playing squad. As the squad name suggest, my squad was only for DDF (Dutch Deadly Forces). [Rip]Dean and a random guy joined my squad. I told the random guy that my squad is a [DDF] only squad and waited 8 seconds but no response so i kicked him. Then [Rip]Dean. The conversation: Funkmen '[Rip]Dean I will kick you this is [DDF] only.' Dean 'I would not do that friend/m8.' - Translated from dutch Dean 'You are playing on my server. Then you have to ....(sound disappeared). - Translated from dutch Funkmen 'Then you should read the server rules to get a license again. - Translated from dutch Funkmen 'The rules say that squad leads themselves may determine whether they kick someone or not.' - Translated from dutch Funkmen 'So yhea..' - Translated from dutch Dean 'I'd say, try it boy. Then is the entire [DDF] off the server. - Translated from dutch Funkmen 'Then i will get my recorder running' - Translated from dutch A [DDF] member ' well then you do that' - Translated from dutch Dean 'Look, that is the big advantage of being a admin.' - Translated from dutch A [DDF] member 'So that would be abuse.' - Translated from dutch Funkmen 'Yes, but abusement is also something.' - Translated from dutch Funkmen 'And then the server license gets in danger.' - Translated from dutch A [DDF] member 'Anyhow we only have 13 tickets' - Translated from dutch Dean stopped talking and we continued playing. 20 seconds later i kicked him. I did my best to translate it fair. The conversation was also recorded See this link: Link to the Funkmen and Dean recording 0:00 - 1:00 The conversation 2:31 Me Funkmen getting kicked The reason for him to kick me: kicking for no good reason. What does the game server administration guidelines(condition of holding a license) say? '~ Squad leaders should be free to kick members of their squad for any reason they choose.' Link: Game Server Administration Guidelines What actions should i take to prevent him banning the [DDF]clan/community? Server rules not in line with server license rules? Because i wanted to know if the [RIP] server rules are in line with the server license rules i checked them and saw this: use teamwork listen to you squad leader no locked squads do not team switch more than once within a 5 minute period no attacking uncappable bases, which means: no personnel may enter an enemy uncappable base no shooting weapons of any kind into an enemy uncappable base no spawn killing in an uncappable base|utf-8 Link: ripserverrules This rule: 'no locked squads'. It can be discussed if this is against the following server license rule. '~ Squad leaders should be free to kick members of their squad for any reason they choose.' When i'm free to kick members for any reason then i can lock my squad(I may kick all players but keep my select few).
  4. very very sad what happened with the russian plane "airbus a321" going down killing over 200. RIP. that being said, id like to have this thread to discuss what [may have] happened. obviously it seems like it was shot down or sabotaged in some way--that is was not an accident. according to reuters, as published by yahoo (http://news.yahoo.com/egypt-loses-contact-passenger-plane-over-sinai-sources-071732582.html and http://sputniknews.com/middleeast/20151031/1029387199/airbus-crash-egypt-no-survivors.html),an isis related group has claimed responsibilit and is quoted as saying it is "in response to Russian airstrikes that killed hundreds of Muslims on Syrian land" and isis proper said in a twitter statement "You who kill will be killed." its also reported that the plane split in two before crashing, which to me sounds like it was shot down with some kind of ground launched aa missile, but ive read too that the plane was far too high to be reach by a ground based aa missilie (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-34687139). could it have been shot down by a military jet? RT quotes Egyptian civil aviation minister Hossam Kama as saying “Communication between flight operations officers and [the] Russian aircraft was carried out in normal way up to the moment of the catastrophe,” he said at a press-conference in Cairo, stressing that the pilot had not asked for help and the plane “suddenly” disappeared." (https://www.rt.com/news/320225-plane-crash-russian-egypt/)too so sounds like something external acted on this. one thing is for sure, this is a russian plane, and russia will get to the bottom of this. godspeed to them and may they deliver swift and focused justice. seems hard to believe it is an "accident" and happened without malive. one obvious conspiracy theory would be somehow the west or west's mid east allies had a hand in this in response to russia totally wrecking isis's shit in syria.
