Volunteering to organize and judge the MCC is a great boon to our custom card community. However, it comes with responsibilities and expectations of timeliness. In the interest of encouraging a quality competition with clear communication and advancement, we as a community establish these guidelines.
As a general rule if you are late, you have 24 hours to finish or post in the MCC discussion thread that you need more time. If you do not, you receive an infraction. The first time is a warning. Subsequent times results in a suspension from the contest. If you don't receive an infraction for six months, you can lose your warning status or reduce the time you would be suspended if you've been suspended before. However, if you keep missing deadlines and/or don't communicate that you need more time, you will keep getting suspended for longer with each infraction.
A more detailed guide to the rules and infraction levels are listed in the following spoiler:
Section 1 - Infraction Levels
1-1: All infractions of the rules result in a Infraction Level increase.
1-2: The Infraction Levels are as follows:
1-2a: Warning – No Action is taken, but an official warning is listed in the MCC Discussion thread with a date of the warning.
1-2b: Level 1 – Organizer or Judge is banned from participating in the MCC as an organizer, judge, or player in the following month.
1-2c: Level 2 – Organizer or Judge is banned from participating for the following two months.
1-2d: Level 3 – Organizer or Judge is banned from participating for the following three months.
1-2e: Level 4 – Organizer or Judge is banned from participating for the following four months.
1-2f: Level 5 – Organizer or Judge is banned from participating for the following five months.
1-2g: Level 6 – Organizer or Judge is banned permanently.
1-3: And Organizer or Judge who does not receive an infraction for 6 months from their most recent infraction goes down one Infraction Level.
Section 2 – Organizer Specific Responsibilities
2-1: The Organizer is responsible for setting MCC deadlines. Once set, the Organizer is responsible for adhering to their schedule along with the Judges. This applies to both judging and posting contest threads for the round.
2-2: New contest threads are due within 24 hours of the judging deadline or when the last judge/organizer posted their judgments, whatever comes last. Failure to do so or communicate as outlined in 2-3 results in a Infraction Level increase.
2-3: Should an Organizer feel the need to alter the schedule in anyway, it must be publicly announced in both the MCC discussion thread and the current MCC contest thread. Changes must be communicated no later than a 24 hour period after the original deadline passed. Failure to do so results in a Infraction Level increase.
Section 3 – Judging
3-1: Judging is to be completed by Organizer set deadlines.
3-2: If an Organizer or Judge fails to submit judgments by they deadline, they are given a 24 hour grace period to complete them or otherwise communicate when they intend to finish as outlined in 3-3. Failure to do so results in a Infraction Level increase.
3-3: An Organizer or Judge may post in the MCC discussion thread if they need more time then a deadline allows. This must be done before the 24 hour grace period has elapsed. This extension may not exceed 48 hours later than the original deadline. Failure to complete judging within the extension period results in a Infraction Level increase.
Section 4 – Resignation
4-1: An Organizer or Judge may choose to resign at any point in a month. This must be communicated in the MCC Discussion thread or they will be subject to the full range of Infraction Level increases outlined above for the full course of the month.
4-2: An Organizer who resigns once their contest month has begun receives a Infraction Level increase.
4-3: A Judge who resigns during a judgment period receives a Infraction Level increase.
