MTS Creator Guidelines

Before uploading and sharing your creations, please be aware that MTS has specific criteria and guidelines for quality of uploads. These guidelines ensure that the general overall quality of uploads found here surpasses that of other sites, and that the details and info on uploads is helpful and looks good.

Please do not be disappointed if your upload is rejected for not meeting these guidelines. Usually the specific PM you get details why your specific upload has not been approved at that time - either becuase it's a flat out rejection (which is usually if you have missed key points of these FAQs, or for a number of other reasons), or if it's a changes required (which means small fixes or changes are needed). If you have read the PM, double-checked the guidelines, and are still unsure as to why your upload was rejected, you can ask for further explanation in Creator Issues.
