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.

Good afternoon, I am sure that this has been brought up before, however, after briefly looking through the forums, my question/suggestion is for teams within an existing squad be brought into the structure, or at least the option for teams to be turned on by the squad leader. After being a team leader myself, it is crucial for a squad and squad leader to have the maneuverability within it's own squad to operate effectively, or in this case, more effectively than already established. The mechanics of the game would then need to shift ever so slightly from 9/9 on a squad to 10/10, 1 being the squad leader and the others being three effective teams, alpha, bravo and Charlie, with the SL falling in to where ever needed without leaving any team without effective firepower. This may have been discussed at the beginning/creation of the game, but I am curious if it has, and if so why it was not implemented and if not is it a consideration? Thanks!

We all know that an army isn't made up of nothing but riflemen. The developers have done an amazing job at diversifying squads and teams but there does seem to be one detail lacking: squad specialties. While most "fire teams" and "squads" carry fairly standardized gear, it's also important to know that squads themselves can have specialties just like individual soldiers do. While the idea of introducing mortars as a deployable makes sense, why go through the pain of limiting the number of mortars within, say, 400 meters? Instead, let's make mortars a specialty to one squad (the combat support - mortar squad). The squad "specialties" would be broken up as follows: Direct Action and Combat Support Direct Action - Heavy Weapons Squad ^ Add 2x Auto-riflemen kits (with either M249s or M240s) Direct Action - Assault Squad ^ Add 2x Grenadier kits [please add hand grenades(with an s!)] Direct Action - CQB Squad ^ Remove Marksmen Rifles ^ Add "Breacher" kit (Shotgun, Pistol, Frag. Grenade, Bandage, E-Tool) Direct Action - AT Squad ^ Add (Better) AT kit (I.e. Javelin) ^ Add SOFLAM-style or laser designator to SQL kit Combat Support Combat Support - Marksmen Squad (Likely everyone's favorite) ^ Add scoped assault rifles (two) ^ Add 2x Sniper kits (M24, SVD, SVD, SVD) Combat Support - Mortar Squad ^ Add 3x Mortar Kits (Mortars must be placed at least 100 or 200 m away from FOB and built within 50 meters of a Mortar Radio) Combat Support - Engineer Squad ^ (For later use) Add 2x Engineer kits Extra ideas: -Allow E-Tool to dig trenches without FOB radio or make dirt cover. -Multiple grenades for standard kits (M4A1+Red Dot, M4A1, AK74M, etc) -Quick-callout-radial for those without microphones ("Contact!", "Incoming!"(please use audio from FOB radio XD), etc.) -Squad text chat -Local text chat -Please balance teams! Perhaps make Insurgents use less stamina and run faster (no body armor), etc Thank you for reading/considering!
If it isn't too much trouble, I'd like to be able to more easily play on the team that my friends are on. I get that team stacking was an issue in the last build, but now it's nearly impossible to get on the same team as my friends that were also playing. If we both happen to hop in the server at the same time, 98% of the time it will split us up(for balancing, of course). The only way we could possibly get on the same team is if we left completely and just watched the number of players go up or down, but even then it would usually put us back on the same team. It's even harder when you've got a group of friends you want to have a squad with. Any thoughts how features that could make joining the same team or grouping up with friends less frustrating? Maybe some sort of party system or a way to trade sides with another player if he or she agrees.
