MFGG Ruleset 8.5


1) No NSFW Material
Do not post text, images, or media of a pornographic or sexually explicit nature. Don't post content depicting extreme violence, or anything else that would be unsafe for work.
  • If you must, please put it in a spoiler tag and give a clear warning, but keep its contents reasonable. This is supposed to be a family friendly website.
  • To clarify further and to define "reasonable": we will not allow anything that has intent to look suggestive or worse. Any media that features whether explicitly or outlined (showing through clothes) any form of "private areas" will not be permitted. Exceptions are granted to official game renders that cannot be reasonably argued to have non-family-friendly intentions.

2) No Illegal Content
Never post or ask for any illegal software, media, or commercial ROMs. ROM hacks are fine if they are distributed as patches.

3) Be Nice to One Another
Don't harass, annoy, troll, threaten, or flame other members. Be courteous and respectful to everyone, and keep all critique constructive in tone. Do not start arguments or attempt to "bait" other members.
  • Be respectful of things people have limited to no control over, such as their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or disability, and don't use offensive terminology about someone's group. Treat everyone equally and fairly.

4) Keep Swearing to a Minimum
The message boards are intended to be a place that anyone of any age can enjoy. Keep swearing to a minimum, and don't attempt to bypass the swear filter.
  • Minor swears will not get you warned as long as you aren't being excessive with them, but we still don't encourage them.
  • Bigger ones should be avoided entirely, but if they appear in any media you're posting (and the media itself is relevant and reasonable enough), you need to have it in a spoiler tag with a warning beforehand.

5) No Throwaway Posts
The message boards encourage well-thought out and inspired discussions. Topics that have little thought, creativity, or discussional value put into them may be removed at a moderator's discretion. Likewise, posts with little to no value (such as a reaction image or a very small handful of words, such as "Cool.") may also be removed.
  • Direct advertisements are mostly limited to signatures. However, you are allowed (and encouraged) to talk about your own work if posted in the correct forum.
  • You can talk about your own website, YouTube channel, or anything of the sort in General Chat. However, please do not create more than one topic for such advertisements (unless the topic hasn't had any activity for around 6 months).

6) No Spam
Keep discussions meaningful and on-topic - do not deliberately derail threads or disrupt conversations. Do not repeatedly post in the same topic or create a large number of new ones within a short span of time. Spambots will be banned immediately.

7) No Outside Disputes
Do not bring drama from somewhere else into MFGG. Similarly, please do not take matters that started inside MFGG to other places on the Internet - for example, raiding a forum in the name of MFGG is a big no-no. What happens on MFGG stays on MFGG.

8) Be Responsible
Do not fuel the flames if you see a toxic post - report posts if the mod team aren't alerted to an issue. It isn't being a snitch; it's helping keep MFGG's atmosphere clean and friendly.

9) General Maturity
Be an intelligent, sensible contributor to MFGG. Some things to avoid:
  • "typin liek dis........ XDXDXD"; writing in barely understandable English or foreign languages, or consistently showing an inability to understand basic English.
  • Frequently instigating arguments or disrupting the community in some other, negative way.
  • Bumping old topics without a valid reason. It is acceptable to bump your own topic if you have a significant and meaningful update.
  • Continuing or reposting a topic that has been locked by a moderator due to it violating the rules.
  • Asking for help in some way (advice in the general chat, or criticism in the development/arts boards) and then showing a complete disregard for any help that is given.

We reserve the right to ban serial or flagrant violators of these rules.

Additional Notes
These don't affect your day-to-day posting as much as the above, but are still definitely worth noting:

  • Don't register more than one account. Contact an admin for name changes, if necessary. If you try to do this in order to bypass a ban, your ban time will just increase.
  • As an exception to the rule above, we will allow you to register a duplicate account if you ask for permission from the staff beforehand.
  • You are responsible for your own account. Keep it secure.
  • An account represents an individual. Do not register an account to be shared by more than one person.
  • Please contact an admin if you need to access the boards using a proxy. We reserve the right to ban accounts created with IP addresses associated with proxies, or "throwaway" e-mail accounts, both of which are frequently employed by spambots and other troublemakers.
  • Avatars and signatures should not contain seizure-inducing or otherwise annoying imagery.
  • Signatures should not be more than 400 pixels tall and stay within a reasonable file size.
  • Please use spoiler tags as appropriate when discussing potential plot spoilers.
  • The mod team isn't psychic. It can be very difficult to tell the intended tone of posts on the Internet, so exercise caution when using sarcasm.
  • Do not try to find flaws or loopholes in the rules and abuse them. Warnings will be administered based on the spirit, not the letter, of the rules.

These rules are subject to change if we see that they don't bring about the intended results.

The old warning system is listed below; please stand by, as the new system coming soon.

MFGG Warning System


MFGG has switched to a hybrid points-based warning system. Everyone is starting with a clean slate, with 0 points on their record. Every time you are disciplined for breaking a rule, warn points will be added to your account. The exact number will depend on the offense. Periodically, points will expire from your account. Your current warning status can be seen in each of your profiles. Some of the major details are listed below:

  • Each user maxes out at 30 warn points.
  • If you reach your warn point maximum, you will be automatically suspended for one year. This replaces the permaban.
  • When you return from a one-year suspension, your warning level will be 90% of its maximum.
  • Every 20 days, one point will automatically expire from your account.
  • Except in special situations, users will be suspended by the warning system, not by a moderator. More on that below.

At higher percentages, users will be automatically suspended each time they receive a warning. The suspension times are fixed by the board and relate only to your current warn status, not what you are receiving a warning for. The following list gives the times and warning levels.

  • 40%: Suspended for 1 day
  • 60%: Suspended for 2 days
  • 70%: Suspended for 4 days
  • 80%: Suspended for 7 days
  • 90%: Suspended for 10 days
  • 100%: Suspended for 1 year

Mods will assign warning points from ranges defined for the following 4 categories:

  • Small offenses: 1 - 3 points
  • Medium offenses: 4 - 6 points
  • Big offenses: 8 - 12 points
  • Super offenses: 13 - 20 points

The definition of small, medium, big, and super are up to the moderating team. The moderating team maintains a loose guide for which types of offenses fit into which category, and each mod will decide at the time of warning how many points to assign from within a given category.
