NewageMugen is proud of being a 99.9% drama free, chill community.
Since 2005, Newagemugen's rules have remained almost unchanged, and have stood the test of time..
We focus on what really matters - providing a highly productive creation focused environment for talented creators.
Our community was designed to attract only the RIGHT people with the RIGHT mindset.
Behind all the small print, our goals are simple - Embrace perfection, Quality & productivity, TRASH degeneracy, drama & complacency!
However, this is the internet & it's not always rainbows & sunshine.
There's always going to be some Keyboard Samurai out there trying to ice skate on sand...(good analogy right?).
Therefor to keep everything lovely jubbly, unfortunately some rules are necessary.

WE ARE NOT A CONVENTIONAL MUGEN FORUM
This is our strictest rule. Our staff actively enforce this rule 24/7.
We cannot emphasize the importance of understanding this more.
Newagemugen is a Semi-public/semi-private Mugen community that has been operating almost flawlessly since 2005.
Our rules have remained almost unchanged, which is a key to our longevity and success.
As they say, "Don't fix what isn't broken".
Newagemugen respects & acknowledges that all Mugen Forums have their own rules/policies in regards to Membership & moderation.
As a self-sufficient community completely funded & managed by its core members, we reserve the right to manage our community as we see fit.
We do not involve ourselves with other Mugen communities, nor do we offer any thoughts/opinions regarding matters outside of our own community.
To avoid potential disappointment/confusion, please do not misunderstand Newagemugen for a generic Mugen forum

Do not argue publicly with senior staff or fellow members under ANY circumstances.

There are plenty of other websites that accommodate that behavior.
Swearing is OK but try and minimize unnecessary profanity.
When giving feedback, we encourage honesty but direct it at creations and the creation process and not creators.
Give polite and constructive feedback.
RESPECT is key. Not just here, but in all walks of life.
Failure to follow these rules regardless of circumstances will result in account removal and potential perma-Ban without warning/explanation.

- Use the forum LOGICALLY:
Again, use common sense.
Don't derail topics.
Post in the correct sections.
Donot Post Ikemen/Mugen CLone engine related content in the Mugen section - we have separate forum areas for both.
Don't necrobump old topics (6 months non-response or more is old unless there is a damn good reason).
Explain yourself clearly and properly and use the English language as it was intended.
Don't request things outside of the request thread.
Don't double/triple post when you don't get an answer to a question.
Also be aware that Newagemugen, unlike other mainstream Mugen forums, is not a Beginner/Help/tutorial-focused community.
Only ask for Help if you have posted the same questions on all other mugen forums and discords and have not recieved an answer atleast one month.
Remember that Aunty Google is your friend so ask her before asking someone else.
- Donations only. NO M.U.G.E.N Profiteering:
- Self Explanatory. Not only one of our oldest rules, it is also an ethical code accepted widely throughout the majority of the greater M.U.G.E.N community.
Do not try to sell M.U.G.E.N or use it as a means for illegal/unethical financial gain.
DO NOT conduct business activities/exchange goods/services/e-commerce/solicitation either on, or via this forum.
In regards to requests for specialized private MUGEN creations/advice, among fellow registered Newagemugen club members, donations can be made directly to Newagemugen forums, and ONLY to Newagemugen forums as a token of appreciation relevant to said work based on recommended commission remuneration providing both parties mutually agree & understand this to be voluntary on both parties part, by their own will & intent, and only for the purpose of the overall Newagemugen community longevity & wellbeing and not as an exchange of goods and/or services under any circumstances.
Members are permitted to use the MUGEN beginners guide to commissions purely as an example and indicator of a project size/cost in a theoretical commercial sense, however it is ABSOLUTELY forbidden to exploit this information or attempt to use it as a personal method of conducting business activities, and/or solicit payments in exchange for goods and services via personal revenue streams/e-commerce money services/wallets etc.
In summary. Newagemugen DOES NOT ALLOW any exchange of goods/services/financial activity other than non-obligatory Donations from club members by their own intent & will. Failure to adhere to these rules will result in permanent removal for the community and legal action where applicable depending on the nature of the activity in question.

For a more detailed guide to what IS and is NOT considered profiteering in mugen, please refer to the guide below:
- No stealing/leaking M.U.G.E.N content:
- Self Explanatory. The oldest Mugen Community Rule on the internet. If you need a definition of what leeching/stealing/leaking then you shouldn't even be here.
- No phishing/Springboarding/PM Spamming:
Newagemugen is s a 100% self-sufficient, internally funded community.
Newagemugen Promotes its members and their content more than any other Mugen community.
We offer Google Analytics services/Search Engine Optimization, the Newagemugen Cinema Network, Youtube shout outs, Featured artists sections, Discord announcements, Promotional banner art material and more.
Do not take this for granted.
Do not use the Newagemugen community as a springboard for your own external following/personal endeavors.
Do not attempt to hijack the Newagemugen userbase via private messages/self promotions for the sake of building your own external following.
Do not PM other members/staff requesting DL links, or mugen content unnecessarily. If you have mugen questions or content requests, post them in the help/request thread. Manage your PM inbox wisely - When inbox reaches Max capacity, you wont receive new messages until older ones are deleted. This applies to Discord accounts also. DONOT spam PMs to other members, or contact individuals regarding matters or questions that can easily be asked publicly in relevant threads. Asking everyone a question at once is more practical than annoying multiple people with the same question individually. Common sense.
- Follow the Avatar/Signature guidelines:
- Compared to other mugen forums we allow larger than normal Avatars/Sigs.
The maximum signature size is 900px wide by 260px high.
The maximum Avatar size is 191px wide x 255px high.
Posting URLs to external websites/youtube pages etc is fine.
Do not post Youtube video windows in your Signature - Use Mugen Cinema to promote your channel/videos.
Any Sigs/Avatars outside these guidelines are automatically resized or removed completely by our website database periodically, so please be aware of this.
- AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, ENJOY YOUR STAY HERE!
