Use this thread to apply for your official AhoyWorld Squad membership!
After we deal with your request we will hide the post to keep the thread clean.
so if you cannot see your post anymore, it will either be added to the squad.xml or declined.
What is it ?
The squad.xml server will be hosting all our squad.xml's for arma in-game use. Membership of one of these squads will provide you with a logo and member identity in-game with a welcome pop up notification.
What squads are there, and can I apply for any of the squads?
There are several squads available:
Generic AW squads:
Ahoy Staff - Obviously for staff only
Ahoy Spartans - Open for Spartan members
Ahoy Ambassadors - A invite-only squad
AWE Veterans - A invite-only squad
Ahoy Members - Open for public sign-up
Donators - Applied to via "register donation" on the donate tab - https://forums.ahoyworld.net/topic/8590-ts-group-and-squad-xml/
What are the sign-up requirements (guideline) ?
- At least 3 months forum membership
- At least 5 constructive posts (yes we will check)
- No warnings or kicks within the last 3 months
- No bans in the last 6 months
-Trustworthy in representing the AhoyWorld name and logo also on other servers
I am a known player on the servers, but only registered on the forums recently:
Above requirements are a rough guideline to insure we only get longstanding active members to use this service. We know that we have some real solid players that are not active on the forums, but still want those players to be able to participate in this. Go ahead and sign up now, and apply for squad membership anyway. If the staff knows you from in-game we will have no problem adding you to the squad even though you only recently signed up.
Using multiple squad's:
It is possible to have membership of several squads and change them in your profile before logging into the server. This might or might not cause some conflicts locally. We technically made all efforts to prevent such conflicts, but we still recommend to stick to the same squad over longer periods of time instead of switching every other day.
How to apply the squad tags in-game:
- Copy the squad.xml url you are apart of from this webpage:
Paste the link in the squad XML box then click apply:
- Log-on to our server and the logo should be visible on your uniform and the side of the vehicle you are driving.
Carrying our logo, name & tag makes you a representative of our community as a whole. We like to think of ourselves as a friendly and trustworthy community and would like to keep it that way. We do take great pride in keeping up the longstanding Arma community friendliness and netiquette as has been the case since 2001. If you cannot live up to this, we will have to remove you from the xml, this might happen without further warning, and in some cases even result of being banned for all our services including the forum.
Offences that will result in retracting your squad.xml membership:
- Any other community or group reports you as misbehaving on their server or forum while carrying our tags (regardless if it's proven or not)
- Misbehaving on our own server resulting in a ban by one of the admins, will get you removed from the server
- Any other offence against our rules that will force us to assume you are not fit to represent us publicly
The staff-team reserves the right to reject any membership application for the squad.xml for any or no reason as we deem fit. In the end we want to have full control who can or cannot represent our community.
