Do not upload mods that unlock DLC or paid content. ##### 2. Do not upload malicious mods with the intention of ruining other's experience. ##### 3.

You must credit the user by either linking the original mod in the license tab or using the same license. ##### 4. Do not upload public NSFW mods. NSFW mods must be unlisted and tagged as "NSFW". Mind rule #5 of General Rules, any image shown in the mod page should not be NSFW. ##### 5. Make sure your mod name and description accurately describes the mod's purpose. Do not publicly upload non-functional or blank mods. Exceptions are made for joke mods, but make sure to tag them as such. Mod names and images should not be misleading or clickbaity. ##### 6.

Examples include but are not limited to infinite ammo or god mode. **Exceptions are made to mods that are sandboxed.** Sandboxing means that the mod is only accessible privately, between friends only or between people who have the mod. ## Music Rules Last Updated: 1 May 2020. *Only read this if you're uploading any content that contains music.* Your music mods go through a process of approval before they're allowed to be public. Exceptions are made when permission is given by the musician/publisher to use their music. We still have the right to reject mods or take down existing ones if we find that it cannot be in the site for various copyright reasons. When uploading music mods, make sure you're uploading it in the correct category. If your mod isn't solely focused on music but contains music, you will still need to ask a moderator to approve your mod. This is temporarily until we'll implement a 'send for review' feature. Setting your mod as hidden should work until your mod is approved. **Not Allowed** * Music from a movie or a show. * Studio/Big Budget Songs are not allowed (ex: VEVO music, music from internationally known artists) * Music that is not freely available to download (ex: music that must be purchased) **Allowed** * Music from games or anime. * Music with the licenses: Public Domain, CC or no copyright. * Music that the artist has provided a free download for. ## Other Things to Consider * Consecutive offenses will result in longer ban lengths. This includes evading bans. * We change our rules occasionally and sometimes we miss on checking some mods, we don't have bots to do this job and it takes time to discuss certain mods if they break our rules or not. * Please do not compare your case to other cases. * We use a system of strikes; moderators decide on case-by-case basis how to apply them. They do not automatically expire and depend on the user, rule broken, severity and the decision of the moderators.
