Unfavorable reviews are welcome, but must not be all anti-game reviews.

It becomes the property of MGS: TF and is covered under the same terms of "4: Use of Site Content" from this document with the exception of the original author being allowed to post said content on their own site. You will be given full credit for all articles written, and will be awarded "DP" Points for your articles. The amount you receive will vary depending on the quality and length of your article.

6: "DP" Points System
All users will earn points for posting on the forum, submitting articles, submitting media, reporting posts, and other community activities. These points may be used to purchase things from the MGS: TF Plaza, however users may lose points due to violations of this policy as well as the Privacy Policy. The amount of points a user will lose depends on the type of violation, normally a violation is from 500-1000 points deducted from a user. Should a user not have more than 1000 points, all of their points will be removed.

7: Violations not listed above
It is impossible for us to cover every possible violation of the terms of use, if you believe your post may be inappropriate please PM a moderator and request a review before it is submitted to the site. We have the right to remove any content a user submits, even if it is not listed as a violation above.
