-Please read the following carefully-

In participating in this site (i.e. through leaderboard submissions, comments, and links to personal social media profiles), you agree to:

  1. Follow the 'golden rule' - treat others the way you want to be treated. Be kind, courteous, and respectful. This is a place to celebrate speedrunning achievements.
  2. Do not engage in any form of bigotry. Hate speech, advocacy for violence or doxxing, harassment, and slurs are not tolerated. This extends to presence on platforms outside of MMLB. We take this very seriously.
  3. Keep comments relevant to speedrunning. MMLB is not a platform for ideological discussion.
  4. Do not use MMLB to spam or advertise.
  5. Please remember this community is for Mega Man fans of all ages. As such, we ask that you refrain from posting explicit content on the leaderboards. Videos of runs submitted should adhere to the streaming service's terms of service. Submissions containing nudity, pornography, or other NSFW content will not be accepted.

This website holds records from several separate and independent subcommunities such as the Classic, X, and Zero communities. Each of these communities has its own Discord server and moderation team. They are the primary points of contact for any code of conduct violations, and MMLB reserves the right to act on concerns raised through these avenues.

Generally, violations of any of the above points will result in a warning. For repeated or severe violations, the admin team reserves the right to remove comments or leaderboard entries without warning. In these cases, the admin team will communicate the reason(s) for the ban to the affected party. The team will also communicate general terms for the ban to be lifted, if applicable, but reserves the right to determine these terms on a case-by-case basis.

Please feel free to approach the moderators if you feel that someone is violating the above rules. We understand that reaching out might be sensitive, and that concerns may involve moderators, administrators, or otherwise prominent community members. If you prefer to voice concerns anonymously, please fill out this anonymous reporting form here

We know that many in the community view speedrun leaderboards, and MMLB specifically, as an 'objective' collection of times achieved. This argument has been made in response to discussions around entry removal in MMLB communities, as well as in other speedrun communities. While we understand the appeal of this view on the role of leaderboards, it has become increasingly clear to us that:

  1. No speedrun leaderboard that relies on self-submission will ever be totally accurate.
  2. Due to the structure of speedrunning communities, leaderboards cannot function as an objective collection of times without also functioning as a portal to interact with the community members who achieved those times. If we have the knowledge that certain runners are bad actors in the community, we cannot in good conscience use space on MMLB to provide users with access to their content. For most people speedrunning is a hobby, and speedrunning communities are spaces where people come together around that hobby. We prioritize the inclusion of people from all walks of life in this space.

If you have any questions or concerns, please join the Mega Man Leaderboards Discord.
