==ABOUT==

ABOUT THIRD PARTY EDITS
You can edit a MUGEN Creation without permission, but do not remove the original Creator name.
Example: Author = "{ORIGINAL AUTHOR NAME}, edited by {YOUR NAME}"
Low effort edits are however forbidden and considered as duplicate content. (see DUPLICATE CONTENT rule)
Examples of low effort edits : portrait swap (except if you fix a non-standard portrait), palette swap, FX modification, damage/stats edits, win quote edits, easy command edits, etc...

ABOUT FULL GAMES OR PACKS
Full games are generally NOT allowed due to server load.
There are a few exceptions tolerated such as mini-games entirely created by a single author.
Moderators have full authority to decide whether a particular full game is accepted or moderated.

Characters or stage packs are generally NOT allowed either due to server load.
Some packs may be tolerated if all of their content is from a single author,
but even in that case the mandatory rules still apply,
which means a sprite shot of every character or screen shot of every stage included in the pack must be added.
Moderators have full authority to decide whether a particular pack is accepted or moderated.

ABOUT NON-MUGEN FAN GAMES
They are now allowed, however there is a strict set of rules to prevent abuse :
A local screen shot must be uploaded. A link to gameplay footage is required as well.
A link to a virus total scan must be added, due to full games being frequently repacked with malicious software.
The game must be free software, and fully playable as is, without any external addition.
Any post that doesn't meet the requirements will be deleted without notice.
