Official MPGH ruleset, supersedes all and any rules set in each individual forum. Last Updated: December 18th, 2017.
Certain rules may not be enforced unless reported. If you feel a poster has broken a rule, report it. All ban durations are the default suggested ban duration, however enforcement is subject to the moderator and may be shortened or lengthened depending on the severity of the rule breaking. Lesser rule-breaking punishments may be handed out via infraction in replacement of a ban. Certain rules may be bypassed with written consent from an administrator, in which it must be explicitly stated wherever posted.

No abuse of the reputation system. This includes soliciting reputation, rep-for-rep trading, giving negative reputation without a direct interaction, and de-rep ganging. All reputation must have reasons provided for why reputation occurred, otherwise a valid removal of the reputation can be requested and will be removed (this does not include CS). If you have reason to believe you have been negatively reputed unfairly, you may create a thread in the reputation review section. All reputation review threads are looked into on a case-by-case basis. A general guideline will be followed, but may diverge depending on the severity of the situation:
- First level: Warning or infraction. Removal of reviewed reputation.
- Second level: 1-3 day ban. 10% deduction from reputation. Removal of reviewed reputation.
- Third level: 5-7 day ban. If abuse was done collectively, punishment will fall either to this level or the second level. 50% deduction from reputation. If reputation points are 50 points are less, this falls to 0.
First time offenders will typically receive the first level punishment, second time offenders will typically receive the second level of punishment, and third time offenders may receive the third level punishment.
