We will never sell/rent (etc.) any of your personal info.
Your e-mail address will only be used for sending out administrative info mails (no spam!).
It's also hidden from the public, to prevent abuse.
Your profile information is only visible to logged in/registered members.

Forum Rules:

1. Be polite and respect the other members.
2. DON'T pretend to be someone or something you're not..
3. English is the only allowed language in here.
4. Flaming, Name Calling, Country Bashing, Spamming, Hate or Racism related posts are not accepted!
5. Almost all opinions are welcome, as long as they are well presented and in a respectful manner.
6. Be prepared to provide sources for things you have posted, lack of this may be considered spamming.
7. Watch your language, this is an open forum and all age groups have access. (but you have to be 13+ to register)
8. Do not try to be a moderator (if you're not of course...).
Sarcastic replies are not allowed! Please use the "report post" button, or PM one of the forum staff instead if you think that some of the posts should be removed or edited.
9. Do NOT double post (reply directly after one of your own posts)! Use the edit button instead!
10. Please do not add pictures in your posts that are not located on your server(s) or servers you are allowed to use. Images from official sources are ok (www.mil.something etc.), as long as you add a link/source to that site.
If you want to use images from other sources then please link to them only, bandwidth theft is not a nice thing!
11. Do NOT write with the CAPS LOCK ON, please...
12. Do NOT post images (or links to images/movies) of extreme graphic nature (murders/death etc.) unless pre-approved by the forum staff. If you are in doubt about the image/movie, PM one of the forum staff first.
13. Avertising for commercial sites is not allowed. Contact one of the forum staff first if you are in doubt about your site or if you're interested in advertising here.

If you break any of these rules you posts may be edited or deleted and a warning PM will in most cases be sent by one of the forum staff, or a "Mod/Admin edit" will be added to your post(s).
"Minor" offenses will in most cases give you a 2-3 days temporary ban.
Three warnings/temp. bans without any improvement will get you permanently banned.
Major offenses will give you an immediate ban, and your internet provider (and other proper authorities) will be notified if we consider the offense(s) severe enough.
Banned (or abandoned) accounts will not be deleted, but the posts will stay in the forum as a warning/reminder to other members/visitors.

OPSEC/PERSEC reminder!
(Operations and Personnel Security)
Remember that this is an open forum, everyone has access and it is listed in several search engines.
If you are a current or former member of the military please do not provide any information that has not officially been released from your government.
Avoid to use full names if you are talking about others than yourself!

Usernames:
If you are not a current or former member of the military, or in any other way related to the names, please do not use SF, Ranger, SEAL, UDT, PJ, CCT, Force Recon, Operator, Marine, Sailor, Soldier, etc in your username.
If you choose to use names like this, or if you claim to be (or has been) a part of a military force, please fill out as much as possible of the profile information to make it clear what you are.
Do NOT try to pretend that you are something/one you are not.
You will eventually be revealed, and this will result in banning, and the notification of the proper authorities.

Most of the contents in here is up to you so just PM me, or post in the suggestions or questions category if you have any more suggestions or questions.

Enjoy....


Additional rules in this category:

No more "Who's best" posts allowed until further notice.
(Who is/has the best SF/Army/Leader, who would win if Norway invades Sweden etc...)
History related posts like this are still allowed. (in the history category)
Please try to provide a source or a reference of some kind where appropriate.

Recent events has forced me to add another forum rule:

9. Do NOT double post (reply directly after one of your own posts)! Use the edit button instead!

Please respect it, since it's very annoying to read double posts!!

I have added a new button that will appear on each post now
"Report Post"

You can use this button to report a post to the forum staff.

Use it only if you believe the post (or some of it ) violates the forum rules, or a post have been posted in the wrong category/forum.

We will deal with the problem as soon as possible.

Recent event's have (again) forced me to tighten the rules some more.

Name calling, flaming and/or country bashing posts will lead to an immediate 1 day temporary ban, without any warning!

It is ok to disagree, but there are many different ways to do it.
Name calling and/or flaming is not one of them!

Please respect that other members may have different opinions than you.
We are here to learn from each other, not start (cyber) world war 3!

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions and/or suggestions.

Thanks for your understanding.

Added yet another rule.

This rule has been mentioned before, but recent events have forced me to add a more clear rule about this.

12. Do NOT post images (or links to images/movies) of extreme graphic nature (murders/death etc.) If you are in doubt about an image/movie, PM one of the forum staff first.
