==Who are we?==
In short, we're a collection of ArmA 3 players whose passionate affair with cooperative combined-arms gameplay and realism is still a better love story than Twilight. Without getting too wordy we love realism, we love roleplay, we love simulation and we're powerful tech wizards who gather all sorts of game data, firing it at you in interesting, colourful ways!
But there are some things we don't love. We don't love telling people when to play or taking everything so seriously we forget to have fun. You know what we're talking about, and we really don't love doing things the way other ArmA groups do them. Basically we're militarized snowflakes.
==Do you have a list of rules?==
We expect every member to use common sense and follow the code of conduct. Please see our [[ https://unitedtaskforce.net/training/sop/basic-infantry/unit-policy | General unit polices and rules ]].
==How many OPS do I need to attend?==
However many you want. With our unique approach you wont be penalised for not coming to an OP. It's a totally flexible system that allows you to slot when you are free. However your activity status will be managed by your COC.
- Regular (Deployed last 30 days)
- Reserve (Deployed 30-60 days)
- Inactive (Deployed 60+ days)
As UNITAF is an opt-in, session based group, if you opt-in and do not attend, you will be given a no-show mark against your dossier for each offence. Racking up too many no-shows takes positions away from other players, and will be addressed. We appreciate it if you click “Can’t attend” if you know that you cannot.

==I have a problem with someone, who should I talk to about it?==
If conflict should arise between members, you should step back, inform a member of Staff or a NCO and **abstain from retaliating**.
==Why do we use UTC and not just GMT?==
We have to cater for many different time zones. UTC is the best fit for this job. However the website will display any operation in your local time as long as you are logged in. We even have the UTC clock at the top right of the website if you need to be sure.
