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.

Hey squaddies, With modding back in full swing, the community has not disappointed in the slightest. There’s a whole heck of a lot of amazing work this month! Join us on the Community Modding Discord where you can join discussions and meet the modding community. It’s a great place to share your ideas and passions with like-minded people that will happily help you create something awesome. SQUAD PROMOD BY SQUAD PROMOD TEAM Previously known as SWCMod, the Squad ProMod Team has been hard at work taking the mod to new levels. ProMod adds support for TC, including new caster features, update to default logos, UI color schemes, and tons of new layers! Not only do those layers include over 30 new ones for Skirmish, AAS, TC, and TC-Invasion, but they’ve also applied their Standard Lighting to bring a more natural and realistic feel, while maintaining consistency for competitive play. ProMod continues to bring great solutions to enhance every aspect of competitive play. Lastly, this update includes their versions of Fools Road and Operation First Light, featuring a full retexture and foliage update. Check ’em out for some really elevated visuals! SVINESUND BY ALAC Hey, Alac is back! It’s been a while, but as you can see, the time has been well spent on Sinvesund. Set in a key route between Sweden and Oslo, the snow-covered area is of utmost strategic importance. Alac is striving to make sure that the balance remains just right so that infantry and vehicles can be effective forces, especially with the difficulty added by the snow. While still a work in progress, it’s becoming evident that the goal is to make a realistic map that still prioritizes fun and playability. Oh, and don’t worry: snow camo will be coming, with lots of testing. SQUAD JAM BY LOKI Now that you’ve seen the trailer, let’s hear what Squad Jam is about directly from Loki himself: Squad Jam is a Squad versus Squad competition where squads of 1-6 players group up and fight until the last squad standing. Rounds last 20 minutes, competitors select inventory at the start of the round, and can loot enemy backpacks, winners keep their inventory, and dead players become scout drones that can help spot and suppress enemies!. Will you be the Victor? AUSTRALIAN FACTION BY AUSSIE MOD TEAM The Aussie Mod Team is back at it and banging out some high quality work again! They’ve included some screenshots of their second map, Operation Anvil. Offering a variety of terrain from the arid canyon top down to the lush basin populate by villages, squaddies will have to adapt to changing conditions as the fighting advances. The verticality of the canyon should present some unique opportunities for overwatch support as well. As an added bonus, they’ve passed along a screenshot of one of their hot new outfits for all this season’s fashion-forward battlemans. GULF OF FINLAND BY HAWKEN A big welcome back to the only Hawken we like more than giant robots! This month, he’s showing off the latest and greatest work on the Gulf of Finland. The Gulf features seven islands that will absolutely require teamwork to assault. Sure to bring about all sorts of airborne assaults (and maybe even some air-to-air door gunner fun), Gulf of Finland will two with two AAS layers, as well as a Territory Control layer. There’s also options for day, evening, and night layers with some varied battle damage. As soon as helicopters are available, expect the nearly-done map to go into full testing. Don’t miss out! ARMORED VEHICLE REWORK (AVR) BY AVR MOD TEAM They may have missed out on the last Wrench, but boy howdy, have they been productive in the meantime. They’ve been getting a little, ah, unconventional over there. Insurgent and Militia Forces will be receiving all sorts of new technical variants, featuring armaments like ATGM launchers, anti-aircraft guns, and more! Lest they are accused of bias, they’ve even got a little sumtin’ sumtin’ for the Americans as well. Got feedback, questions, or comments? Head over to their brand new Discord server. IRON DAWN BY SPECTR_ETERNAL SPECTR_Eternal keeps marching on through the warzone that is Iron Dawn! In this update, we’re treated to work on a new industrial area featuring a water purification facility, as well as a battle-scarred complex wide enough for vehicle combat, but just small enough to turn every chokepoint into a potential ambush. While he doesn’t have a date yet, we’ll likely be seeing Iron Dawn in the Squad Jam, featured above. SQUAD MODDING HUB MANAGEMENT TEAM OUT.
