      Forum Rules

      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.
      The rules of this forum have been last edited November 24, 2015.   Section I: Posting Guidelines   §1 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.   §2 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) 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.   §3 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 In doubt, it is recommended to rather post in an existing thread, unless that thread is years out of date.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.   §4 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.   §5 Language, Free Speech & Respect
      This community can only work if we all respect each other - while we will not strictly moderate every little swear that occurs, the Squad Moderation Team will moderate any spiteful / aggressive behaviour, even if it is not expressed with explicit language. As a privately hosted web forum, there is no guaranteed “right for free speech”, especially not when it would impact other users negatively. The moderation reserves the right to remove rants and unsuitable content at any time.   §6 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.   §7 Attitude towards Squad, the Team and other Users
      As per §5, keep in mind to be respectful and reasonable, not only towards all users of the forum, but also towards the Squad Team, towards any ideas and content and the game itself. Criticism is welcome, but if it is not constructive or 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.   §8 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.   Section II: Forum Signatures   §1 Signature Dimensions
      To avoid clutter, please make sure your signature (if you choose to have one) does not exceed the following size limit: 350x150 pixels. Your signature may consist of images, user bars and text elements, as long as the total size does not exceed 550 x 200 pixels. A small tolerance will be given, but any signature larger than the limit may at any time be deleted without prior warning. If you are not sure whether your signature is acceptable, please PM a moderator.   §2 Signature Content
      All rules of section 1 fully apply to your signature. We will remove signatures or parts of signatures without notice if they violate the forum rules, and infractions may be given.   §3 Animated Signatures
      Please refrain from using animated .gifs as signatures, they distract and clutter the forum.   Section III: 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.

      On Site Selling and Trading of Items

      We are fine with allowing members to post their gaming stuff you need to sell in the "Discussions - Off Topic" as long as it doesn't get out of hand.
      All transactions are between the members involved and OWI will not be involved nor get involved in any dealings. All negotiations are to be done in the privacy of PM's between the parties involved. Only computer hardware is allowed. Software and any non computer items will be removed and the poster warned. No commercial activities will be allowed. Only personally owned items can be listed.
      When the item(s) are no longer available either because they have been withdrawn or sold the thread must be terminated. This should be done by the OP so as to inform the membership that the item(s) are gone.   Abuse in any shape or form will be dealt with quickly and could include punishment right up to being banned from the site.   We reserve the right to terminate this allowance at any time and to modify the rules at any time.   Thank you

  1. Okay so... idk if this has already been suggested or not. It seems like it may not have been, but even if it has I honestly don't even know how I would search for it. One of my squad mates had a pretty genius idea today. So I'm often on command radio talking to other squad leaders, and I regularly have to make sure everyone on squad net clears comms so I can hear command radio. My squad mates don't know when I'm on command net, so sometimes they're just wondering why I'm being quiet... and then interrupt me listening to command net, by no fault of their own. So one of my squad members had the great suggestion... why not just put a little icon that shows up for everyone in the squad whenever the squad leader is transmitting (or listening) to command channel. Then they would know if they should be quiet, or at least understand that the squad leader is actively communicating over command radio... and that's why he's having trouble talking to them. Seems like a simple idea... that could really help smooth out gameplay. I honestly can't remember who suggested it... its in one of my videos though, I'll add it here if I remember who it was.
  2. Thanks man, not many appreciate that side of what I do so that means a lot to me for real. Honestly the biggest thing keeping me from doing it more is money, but Youtube is starting to support me doing it more, so I'm starting to record more material of it. If you want to see whenever I release stuff like that you can follow my band Johari's channel, that's usually where I release all that stuff, as my guitarist Kyle is really cool about making it look nice and keeping track of comments and stuff
  3. Russian?
  4. but that's how they do it in real life right? Although to be honest superglue would probably take longer than mounting it properly...
  5. lol you misunderstand me bb, everyone hates the bluedrake. but only newbies are the ones hijacking other people's threads over it. hate on me all you want, but don't take over some poor dude's thread with it, especially when it has nothing to do with what he was originally asking. not kosher. time and place. That'd be like if I randomly started hijacking all your threads talking about how much I hate anime because you have an anime thumbnail. Its just bad form. Not productive or helpful, which is hopefully what a forum should be. You're gonna create bones to pick on the forums if you keep doing things like that. About as bad manners as whatever you say I could do on a PR server. I mean without overreacting I think I can say we'll all agree something like a shovel should never be allowed to swap out. That's a given. Also I'd say having more strict kit load-outs is a pretty time-proven feature that makes Squad and PR what they are.
  6. ... so canadian. or canadian brazilian.
  7. brazilian?
  8. who said I thought you were Japanese, I thought you were like a buff mexican dude
  9. Ah okay, its all so jumbled. You have any screenshots of your stuff?
  10. cool... well then FUCK you still. but not really. plz sencake love me
  11. and that shows all the 3D squad icons and whatnot too? it didn't the last time I was using it, but maybe its gotten considerably more fly since last
  12. I saw some of AJAX's stuff too, I can't remember if the other bits I saw were his or not http://s598.photobucket.com/user/Maelstrom-X-/media/Squad_UI_Grid_withMapTest_zpsiadhkzrd.png.html That yours? I can't remember, there were a bunch
  13. Is that the same Mitsu btw? I haven't seen your Squad account so idk
  14. FUCK you Mitsu. Jk. ily
  15. Hey Invisible don't you do UI design? I saw some of your stuff from before, god damn masterful, we were talking about it in our dev chat thing the other day
