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.

Hi, My clan has tags that are slightly too long for us to use the in-game prefix/tag field. Right now we are manually changing our names in steam when playing Squad. Would it be possible to either get a slightly longer prefix character count or alternatively implement steam group tags into the game? Quite a few other games have done this and it means people can set up tags in steam which work specifically for Squad.
I recently came back to Squad after a LONG time away form it. My first impression when I first got the game was "meh". At one point I thought "I´m playing Red Orchestra 2 with modern maps". But v10 has suprised me and I´m quite pleased. I see the game is moving a bit towards where i´d like it to be. I AM REALLY HAPPY ABOUT v10. The animations, vault, climb jump stuff is just great. I know there are some problems with animations and medic stuff but I have faith they´ll fix it. Now, there are 2 things that I´d like to see improved. 1. NAME TAGS. Not only are they annoying but I think they provide with a combat awareness that should only be achieved by communication and realistic tactics. I know it´s annoying, but FRIENDLY FIRE is REALISTIC. There is no blue on blue because you can always easlily tell if you´re aming at a friend even if he is 300mts away from you, prone, behind 2 tree lines, smoke and inside a house!!!!!! PLEASE make name tags have some delay (3-5 secs), NOT TRHOUGH WALS AND STUFF and smoke!...and only close distance...like dunno...30 mts???.... Target confirmation is a big part of modern warfare and tags just take it away from the game. Identyfing friend from foe is a skill I want to have a part in the game. 2. RESPAWN TIME and fobs. I know they´ve increased it when the FOB is under attack (I think). I think you should either make it a REALLY long time to respawn in a fob that is under attack, or just completely remove the possibility to spawn in a fob under attack. Being new to a game that claims to be "realistic" and spawning under fire over and over again made me think I was playing COD. If you change that, sls will be compeled to plan the location of fobs and its defence. Thank you for Reading. I´d like to know your opinion.
so i haven't been in squad or on the forum in a month or so and i noticed a link steam to the forum so ive done that and i dont have my founder forum tag or my in game founder skins. any one els have this issue? do i just have to wait a few hours for things to work out or do i need to get a hold of support?.
Going to sound a little pedantic here, but it is probably worth bringing up as it hasn't been addressed in some time. As many are aware, part of the pledge rewards for backing Squad was a "Backer" or "Founder" tag here on the forums. Now that we are almost a year since funding, I have to ask, "What is the status of these tags?" I am aware that a few have already got them, but I imagine the majority of us have not. Yes, there are more important things to do, but this isn't a job that needs to be undertaken by the devs and should be seen as a goodwill measure to those who helped fund the project. Surely some of the community staff could take this service on board? It's not so much that the tags are important, just that it was a pledge reward and, as yet, it still hasn't been delivered? So, what is the go with these tags?
So I regularly get this issue where I get shot from enemy which I think is friendly due to the fact that a downed players name tag is above the enemy's head ( this primarily happens in closed quarter combat where the enemy is peaking a corner and not fully visible ). I would like to suggest that any downed players name tag either turns red when they are downed or totally disappears with the exception for medics of course. I would actually prefer the latter as it would reduce on screen clutter of downed player name tags. I think it would add to the games immersion as reduced HUD clutter is always a good thing imho. I don't mind being killed due to the skill of other player or down to my lack of. But I do get frustrated when I get killed from an enemy due to my view being obscured or confused due to downed player name tags. Just thought I'd throw this suggestion out there.
The tags are not something I actually care about but the Glenlivet is kicking in and got my creative juices flowing. In this thread, http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/9383-early-access-rewards/, I posted a quick mockup of my idea to have a small, discreet image that looks like a military rocker patch showing the backer status. This is what I'd like to see. A little "Backer" rocker logo. It's there, but not in your face. Discrete, yet visible. And it fits the motif of Squad. Another option I thought of would be to replace the Member status area completely with a section of slightly larger stackable rockers. I'm not a coder so I don't have any idea how much of a pain in the ass this would be to implement.
Hi everyone. Been playing for about a week now and I'm loving this game. I'm also new to this forum. However, I've got some questions that may sound strange or stupid: 1: Are there any servers in particular, forums in here or other places that have arranged matches on Squad for "noobs"? Just so new people with zero experience or understanding would get a chance to learn how to play? 2: How do you find a particular server ingame? I have not seen a way to search for servers,- only updating the server list. 3: It's not easy finding a good tutorial on how to play as a squad leader. I've come across a few, but they tend to leave important information (for me that is), such as how "FOV-points" or whatever they are called,- work. Any good tutorials out there? In the game, I had to learn how to build and maintain a fortificated position from a guy who kept yelling and team-killing in order for the other 2 squads to maintain their position. It's a game, and some of us just need to be respected for not having sufficient knowledge. Even as a rifleman. 4: Isn't people banned/kicked for "x" amounts of team-kills? This did not happen while on a server 9 hours before I wrote this. 1 guy team-killed over 10 times within 10 minutes. 5: Is it possible to kick people from my squad? How? And is it possible to kick an unassigned member somehow? 6: Names ingame sometimes got a tag. What's that good for and how do you get it? Last question that is likely to be the dumbest one; I've got the best resolution while playing, but never tend to see the enemy unless they are about 30m away. Everyone else seem to be pretty good at spotting enemy from a good distance, even while they are not "snipers". Is there any trick to spot enemies in dense enviroments, such as in a poppy-field or other flora? Any answer is highly valuabled. Thank you!
Hi community, I need some help and was wondering if anyone knew how I can fix my problem. My clan tags [sFSS] are not showing up when I play. My old steam profile name keeps showing up even though I have changed it and logged into the squad portal with it. My steam profile nickname shows up properly in other games just not this one. When people view me on steam it shows up correct as well. How can I get my current steam nickname to show up in squad? Thanks [sFSS] TheWildBean-MGST aka.... Thewildbean61
Goodyear posted a topic in QuestionsHi all, I just got the; "Rifleman Tier package"How do i go about getting the tags for the forums? Many thanks, Tom
