      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 In doubt, it is recommended to rather post in an existing thread, unless that thread is years out of date.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. Community Clan Fight Night - Week 10 Teams Sunday 6th March 2016 @ 1910hrs GMT Servers: [ EXODUS ] & RedCoats Map: Chora AAS 1 Sign up order Zulu Xray Delta RedCoats RedCoats iB & Utd iB & Utd Age of Kill Freelancers Union EXODUS 303RD Tiger Battalion Fear Academy Full Contact CSSC WAR ? ? ? Server One - '[ EXODUS ] CCFN 11 S1' Team 1 RedCoats RedCoats 303RD Tiger Battalion Freelancers Union Team 2 iB & Utd iB & Utd Full Contact Zulu Xray Delta Server Two - 'RedCoats CCFN 11 S2' Team 1 EXODUS Fear Academy WAR ? Team 2 Age of Kill CSSC ? ? Looks like we are three squads short going into today's event. There is still time to get involved. You need to post up or contact me directly ASAP. If no change to the roster by event start we will run Chora AAS 1 on server one and Logar Skirmish on server two. If any clans have more than nine players they may join server two. For clans new to the event here is a quick breakdown of how the event runs. 1910: Join your server 1910 - 1920: Team up / Squad up / Warm up (skirmish map) 1920 - 1930: Teams discuss tactics 1930: Change to map game LIVE - round one Halftime: Five minute break / server changes map twice Halftime: Break finished / Change back to map LIVE - round two Finish: Round two ends We will start the game at 1930 promptly. Make sure your team is on the server and on the correct side by 1920. Remember you can only switch teams once before you receive a timer. If you do get the timer exit your game completely and reload Squad. We start on a skirmish map. Use this time to warm up and discuss team tactics. The event will go live on the change to the chosen map. Live announced as always. The same again at half time, skirmish map, two maps changes to avoid the bug and keep the teams, then live when we drop into the map. We're unsure how the broadcast will work this week. We will try to cover both servers if we decide to go ahead. Blitza has put together a video from some of the footage he gathered during last weeks event. See you on the servers. Game on!
  2. CCFN Week 10 Report Well we made it. Ten consecutive weeks of Community Clan Fight Night battles. The event ran smoothly for the most part bar one or two issues with the server hosting provider. Due to either heavy traffic or DDOS some players were unable to see the server listed in the browser even though it was live and running. It didn't hinder proceedings too much as most managed to reconnect eventually. Hopefully things are better for the next event. We put a CCFN broadcast out for the first time. Again for the most part it ran well with the exception of no sound during the second round. We will continue to try and develop this, inviting guest commentators in each week to call the game, and use footage from the previous event to make a promo video for the next event, etc. Anyone interested in the production side of the event should get in touch. Links to all the channels below. Week ten saw the welcome addition of a clan called Utd. The match was held on the EXODUS server and the map played was Logar AAS. The game started at 1936hrs and finished by 2120hrs GMT. The following clans were in attendance: RedCoats iB Fear Academy Freelancers Union Utd Zulu Xray Delta Full Contact Tactical Gamer EXODUS We now have a Discord channel set up for CCFN. Two reps from any participating clan are welcome to join. PM / Steam / Discord me for an invite. CCFN Twitch Channel CCFN Youtube Channel CCFN would like to send a special thank you out to Squad League for hosting the event on their Twitch Channel. Sign-ups for CCFN 11 have already been posted. The aim is to run the event over two servers for the first time this week. Potentially that provides space for up to sixteen clans and one hundred and forty four players. At the time of this post we have thirteen squads from eleven clans signed for the event leaving space for up to three more clans to join this evening's event. Through speaking to clans this week it's become apparent that a description of what exactly CCFN is and whats it's entry requirements are need re-posting. The plan is to get that information condensed and reposted at some point this next week. In the meantime if you have any questions post up or find your way over to the Discord channel. As always a BIG shout to everyone involved, see you next time. Anything I've missed, let me know. chronic OUT. B) I was too busy broadcasting to get any screenies of the teams / scores. Can someone post them up?
  3. Copy. Sent you a PM.
  4. Chora AAS v1 this week - 'Scopes vs Scopes'.
  5. I will miss the old boards. Progress is progress though. GG.
  6. EXODUS in! 'Fuck the beers, give me the Squad and the weed' :)
  7. Don't worry about numbers. Try and keep the thread clean when possible it gets difficult to see who is doing what. We have a CCFN discord server established now for specific questions and general info. PM for invite. This thread will remain the main hub for the events. ZXD are down for one squad, 9 players, the rest will probably get a game but will be on standby till event start.
  8. Still space for five more squads / clans. Drop me a PM if you need more info or an introduction to the event.
  9. Looking good. See you there. :)
  10. Added you on steam. Will send group invite this evening. Thank you.
  11. Do you mind adding me on steam please 3ti65 or drop me a PM with your steam profile? Thanks.
  12. Ten squads signed over eight clans so far. We have room for upto six more clans. CCFN is open to all active Squad Clans. See the sign-up post on the previous page for detials. We're also looking for videographers to come in and take high quality footage for use in promo videos and your own personal projects. And depending on confirmation one or two guest commentators. CCFN is a community event. Get involved. :)
  13. EXODUS 1 squad.
