====Do you have a list of rules?====
Yes, UNITAF members are all adults and 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 ]] for more information.
====What are the activity requirements?====
You can attend as many or as little operations as you like, the minimum is 1 deployment per month, there is no maximum. With our unique approach you won't be penalised for not coming to an operation you did not opt into. 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 and will fall into the following;
- 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 we will take action against this type of violation. We appreciate it if you click “Can’t attend” if you know that you cannot.
====How does the training system work?====
====How do I request a training?====
There are two ways of doing this.
# Contact your COC, they can push the request and get a training organised.
# Head over to our Discord Server and simply request it in [[ https://discord.gg/gyEVRkq | #j6-training-and-sop ]]
====How do I get promoted?====
Promotions from all ranks follow a similar procedure, there are a number of 'minimum requirements' - once these are met, the 1IC of the person due for promotion has the option to recommend them for promotion, which is then reviewed by the commanding officer and if approved deferred to the next official operation briefing. You can find out more about how ranks are used in UNITAF as well as requirements for all ranks [[ https://unitedtaskforce.net/roster/ranks/introduction | on the website. ]]
====How can I become a Pilot/Sniper/Special Operator?====
All roles beyond Tier 1 require a mix of operational experience and SOP practice in that specific area. [[ http://docs.unitedtaskforce.net/w/faq/#How do I request a training? | see here on to request training. ]]
====How do I setup Radios?====
We cover this all in a basic FTX. If you haven't attended one please get on the next available basic FTX. You can find them here - [[ https://unitedtaskforce.net/operations/view/practice | Practice OPS ]]. If you cannot see a basic FTX, [[ http://docs.unitedtaskforce.net/w/faq/#training | see here on to request training. ]]
NOTE:The below video covers how the setup radios in TFAR
====How do I get on the next mission?====
Head over to the website, sign in and then click the big green button that says "Join Next Deployment". Or simply follow this link [[ https://unitedtaskforce.net/operations/view/upcoming | to the Operations Center ]] to browse upcoming operations.
====Why am I going deaf/why are my ears ringing?====
IMPORTANT: Earplugs... Always remember your earplugs. Note that some calibre rounds will still pierce through earplug protection.
====Why can't I bandage myself/others?====
To perform any medical actions you need to sling your weapon on-back, the default key for this is '0'
====I have an idea for a campaign, can I run it?====
Hell yeah - we'd love to hear it, there are dedicated channels on Discord for campaign ideas. You should also reach out through the chain of command to speak to regular field leaders. If you have any more questions please head to the Discord and ask in [[ https://discord.gg/cRyzhAy | #j4-campaign-ideas ]].
====I have a problem with someone, who should I talk to about it?====
UNITAF has robust procedures in place, if you have any issue report it to your chain of command / 1IC / reports to and they will advance it as required.
====Why do we use Coordinated Universal Time?====
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 and importantly, not using a VPN from a third location. We even have the UTC clock at the top right of the website if you need to be sure.
