Code Of Conduct

Staff Roles & Expectations

Role Requirements

The MMD server has many roles which are meant for members of the general community. These roles are usually given out by moderators when certain conditions are met. MCreator users will NOT be granted the mod coder role. To request one of the roles below you must familiarize yourself with the requirements and, unless otherwise noted, contact a moderator in the #role-requests channel.

CurseForge Project Verification Example
(Modrinth example coming soon!)

Other Roles

These roles are given at the discretion of the MMD staff when certain conditions are met. These roles should not be requested in #role-requests.

Channel Policy

MMD currently allows members to request new channels to be created. While anyone can request a channel, this is typically reserved for mod authors and those with projects that need a place for discussion.

The general MMD rules also cover community channels but should someone be harassing/spamming your channel you can request we block a users access to your channel, this is done on a case by case basis and judged by the moderation team.

If a user owned channel is inactive for 60+ days, one of our bots will ping the channel owner/s with am embed and some buttons asking if you’d like to keep the channel or archive it.
You have roughly 14 days (2 weeks) to reply to the bots ping before staff will likely archive it for upto one year before deleating it.
However, you have the right to request we un-archive the channel before that year is up.
(NOTE: Webhooks do not count towards channels being active, only user activity is counted.)

Warnings & Bans

The MMD server uses an infraction based system for handling warnings and bans. Moderators and admins can issue infractions to members. Each infraction has an associated point value, the higher the points the more serious the infraction is. The types of infractions available are split into major and minor categories.

Major - 3 points

Note that in cases where illegal activity is involved, the details for the poster should be reported to Discord Trust and Safety directly.

Minor - 1 point

Infraction Policy

If a moderator feels that a member is deserving of an infraction, they can issue one of the predefined infractions. Infractions are created through a bot, which will require the staff member to include reasoning and evidence. Once the infraction has been completed, it will be entered into our system. Points will eventually expire, however they will remain in the database.

If a member has 3 infraction points, they will be temporarily suspended from MMD. During the suspension period, the admins will review the member’s history and determine whether or not a ban is needed. Every further infraction will require invoke another admin review.

There is zero tolerance for misuse of the infraction system. All infractions must include evidence of some sort. In cases where said evidence would be illegal to reproduce, other forms of verification such as 3rd hand testimonials are acceptable.

Keep in mind that some members have weird ways of interacting with each other. Depending on the history between the two members, some interactions which are against the rules may be acceptable. An example of such an exception would be two friends provoking each other.

Using MMD as a platform to advertise content is not allowed. Exceptions to this policy are made for members who have some sort of relation with MMD. The first exception is made for MMD Partners. This group of people may make promotions and announcements in MMD, provided that they run things by an admin first. The second group of exceptions are for content creators who are recognized by MMD, and are posting in the designated channels. For example, modders are allowed to show off their new mods in #community-announcements. It is important to note that there is a difference between answering questions or having a conversation about another project, and a promotion or advertisement post.
