■ WHAT THIS GROUP IS FOR
This group has been founded to collect and share DownLoadable Contents (DLCs) and artworks, made for use in MMD or made using MMD/MMM, dealing with fights, combat, battles, action, sport and so on.
Our main goal is to share how MMD (and MMM too, if used as alternate program) can be used to make pictures and animations having fights (or action in general) as focus.
Artworks and DLCs hosted and submitted here should deal with these purposes.
This is not an "all purposes" group, where to post any kind of MMD artworks and downloadable contents.
We use some flexibility while deciding on the submitted contents, but as a general rule, don't submit here artworks and/or DLCs having really nothing to deal with the group's focus.
■ The Prime Directive: PLEASE, NO DRAMA
Keep your dramas, raging rants and insults out of here. MMD is supposed to be fun. Keep civil, pleasant and polite behaviors. Criticisms and discussions are welcome. Drama/rants/insults are forbidden. Users confusing "discussion" and "insulting people" can be banned without previous warnings.
Also rants, attacks and attacks directed against specific users or "blacklists" will be removed immediately. We do not host private wars, nor crusades against specific users (i.e. what can be defined as a form of cyberbullying).

■ LINKING 3rd PARTY'S CONTENTS
One of our goals is to help people finding useful contents, regardless of where they come from.
You can post here also 3rd party's artworks and DLCs (typically published on Bowlroll or NicoNico, but not only) respecting 3 conditions:
1) You're not reuploading the DLC without authorization
2) You MUST clearly credit the original authors
3) Don't use AD-based url shrinkers to share the links (goo.gl is ok)
■ PASSWORD SHARING
Password sharing is allowed under precise conditions:
1) The password must have been clearly hinted or printed, so that you are just helping people to save time
2) The author must have not explicitly prohibited the password reprint
Example of a "valid" password sharing: "The password is the number of the image sample". You can publish the number, as guessing it is just a matter of looking at a URL address and get a number.
Example of an "invalid" password sharing: "The password is the birthday of this anime character". You CANNOT publish the answer, as guessing it is a matter to match the author's favourite anime, as the author probably wanted the DLC is downloaded by that anime's fans only. What you could do is eventually helping people to find the answer.
The difference is quite simple, but in case you have doubts, ASK before submitting here a shared password
■ ABOUT CREDITING
The very first condition you MUST respect is crediting any author's work you have used.
Credits are needed not only in order to thank the work made by the original author, but also because they are a formal acknowledgement about the intellectual property of the authors, unless the work has been released under CC-Zero (Public domain) license. Also in this case, crediting and linking back the original work is a good idea, to help other MMD users in finding contents of their interest.
■ THE "DL" MARKED GALLERIES
All galleries marked as "DL" (DL = download) are for downloadable contents. We just share freely downloadable contents. No place, here, for contents distributed for a fee, using Patreon's accounts to force people paying, or DLC published under the request of a private note or a discord subscription before getting the download link.
■ THE "ART OF..." GALLERIES
All galleries marked as "ART OF [something]" are for pictures and videos. Post your artworks here, respecting the gallery focus. Insisting in wrong submissions will cause we reject your posts. "Art of other" gallery is a multipurpose gallery, but still artworks submitted here MUST concern the group's focus (i.e. this is not a free place where to submit romance pictures with Meiko hugging Kaito); also, "Art of other" gallery is not the place where to submit R18 and/or fetish/S&M/femdom works.
■ ABOUT "GAME RIPS" AND FORMAT CONVERSIONS
Actually "ripped" is not the right word. The right word should be "extracted and converted". Since this kind of DLCs are distributed for free (including no url shrinkers ad-campaigns), under the Fair Use specifications and with proper credits given, they are allowed.
Consider, however, that not all countries allow "fair use" shared contents, so BE CAREFUL when sharing this kind of contents.
Same rules and suggestions apply to models/parts/stages converted from any other format by third party's contents.
■ ABOUT S&M/FEMDOM/ETC
Fight is Fight. Not domination, not loop-ballbusting and even more, not a S&M voluntary submission fantasy game or consensual practice. You can publish here artworks and contents having S&M/femdom/fetish "atmospheres" and feelings, but keep in mind the group's focus. This kind of artworks should anyway deal with any kind of combat/fight.
■ Going deeper...
We'll publish deeper considerations about the previous matters and issues using the group's journal.
