Hello and welcome to the forum otherwise known as Australian Military Community. Please read on for our Rules of Engagement regarding this site.

The following are a few dot point on what not to and what to do regarding this forum
• All can post here regardless of military experience
• Join up and browse at the beginning. In other words read more than you post. This forum has its own humor with what everyone is used too. Get the feel for the place before posting.
• Clock up a few posts before adding your humor. Your humor mightn’t be accepted. So abide by the above rule and there will be no problems.
• Be aware there are what we call BTDT (Been There Done That) here. They are here to help in anyway possible to you new comers. But don’t rub them up the wrong way or be prepared for a short an uneventful stay.
• BTDT’s can be recognized by there stunning looks and their massive appendages!
• USE THE FREAKING SEARCH BUTTON! If you have a question, first use the search button or at least try to Google it! If you do a search for it, then pose your question in the following manner. “I have searched but couldn’t find anything on it, could you please tell me how to get to the mess from Battalion Head Quarters”(example only)
• BTDT’s or existing users, if you are going to write off someone’s thread by saying “Use the search Button”. At least provide a link to where they can go.(This doesn't apply to Mods oe Admin)
• Once you have decided to add your two cents worth, give a little introduction about yourself it will help existing users figure out who or what they are dealing with.
• When posting a reply. Keep it on topic.
• Do not post in CAPS!
• Icons are great, but don’t over do them. but don't overdo it. A few icons per paragraph should do the trick.
• Cadets.. Ahh good old cadets. We're not really interested in your organisation, keep it quiet if you are one.
• Do not post Nudity, Obscene Pictures or anything else likely to offend. (As much as some of us would like, however this site is visited by minors)
• Do not post something that is a direct flame towards someone. Flaming as a newbie is not tolerated here and our moderators will make your stay short.
• Do not think that you must suck up to the Mods or BTDT’s. This is not true. Providing you follow all the rules, YOU ARE ALLOWED YOUR OWN OPINION! However if you haven’t served then don’t expect someone to take your side on your “grandma’s brothers Son’s story”!
• PM’s. Everyone here is entitled the privilege of having private message. But just because you message a serving member for something DON”T expect something back.
• With this grow a thick skin and don’t be easily offended... In other words “Harden the f*** up!”
• Avatars/Usernames. Be careful in what you choose. ie DON’T go calling yourself “hardparatrooper” unless you are or were a Para trooper. By choosing a name or Avatar of something you aren’t may offend some of the serving members here.
• Ausmil is a tightly run ship. Poser’s, dickheads and wannabe know it alls are not tolerated.
• If you choose to leave the site, just do so. We don’t want threads started with “I am leaving because!” Nobody will care, nor will anybody beg you to stay.
• Be mindful of Opsec and Persec.
• For the ex or currently serving there is a separate ex/serving member’s forum to post in. Just PM one of the mods or Admin to get access. You will need to give pmkeys, Reg no. for entry. We want to know a bit about you, so if you haven't posted much in the forums, we will probably knock you back until you do.
• Remember, membership here is a privilege, not a right. It is NOT a democracy here. If you don’t like the way things are run here, don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

So there you go, keep to those rules and your stay here will be enjoyable. You will gain a lot of information from people who have served or are going through the same recruiting /training process that you are/will be.

The soul of a nation stirred.

    'Australia Today', 1916 is Australia's leading military discussion forum. Originally formed back in 2004 as as a forum for, by, and about the Australian Special Forces, the forum has since widened it's scope to include all members and branches of the ADF as well as our honoured guests and allies from overseas. Despite some sections being open to the public, the forum still enjoys the membership and advice of respected members of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces both local and international, as well as those from elite specialities in the conventional forces. From recruit training right up to SF selection tips - if it's frank and honest advice you're after, you'll find it here.
