BY ENTERING THIS WEBSITE AND USING ITS RESOURCES
The use of this website is restricted to adults only. MBM considers adults to be those persons who are at least the age of majority, generally considered reaching the age of at least 18 years. If you are found to not be of the age of majority in the country where you access this site, your account will be canceled and subscription fees refunded to the account you used to sign up to the site.
A PROFILE PHOTO IS REQUIRED. If you fail to provide an appropriate photo, your account can be placed in suspended status. Your profile photo must be a photo of yourself (your face need not be shown), and preferably of a male body modification on yourself OR be a photo of a male body modification to which you hold the copyright, license, or have the permission of the owner of the photo to use. This permission must be obtained prior to placing the photo on MBM, and will be reviewed by the website staff. CARTOON IMAGES, PHOTOS OF STUFFED ANIMALS, AND PHOTOS OF OTHER INANIMATE OBJECTS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE! ANY photos of females are prohibited with the only exception being that you are a female and you post a photo of yourself without nudity to satisfy the profile photo requirement. Failure to submit an appropriate photo within 7 days of activating your membership on the website will result in your account being suspended with no pro-rated refund of subscription fees paid to MBM. Your account will be reactivated once you are in compliance with the profile photo requirement. The account must be reactivated manually by the administrators. As such, you should contact a site administrator if you find your account in suspension.
You will know your account does not have an acceptable profile photo if your profile displays a yellow image with red letters that states, "Profile Photo Required to Avoid Account Suspension".
Profiles on MBM have many fields that need to be filled out. ALL fields should have some information placed in them. The only field that can have an entry of “none” is the field for modifications you already have, should you not have any modifications. All other fields must have an answer provided. Should a profile not be completely filled out, the profile can be suspended, at which point you will need to contact an MBM administrator to restore your access.
If you live in the United States, we require that you not only identify your country of residence, but also your state of residence. US based users that do not have their state listed in their profile may have their account suspended.
Each user creates an account that contains a user ID and a password. Your user ID and password is for your use only. Lending your ID and password to another person constitutes a violation of these terms of service.
At no time may you threaten or harass another MBM member or the website administrators. Should you encounter harassment, you should contact an MBM administrator to report this activity. Your concern will be noted and investigated by the administrators of the website to verify the claims made in the complaint. If abuse is proven, resolution of the complaint shall be made by the administrators of the website and can include a minor reprimand to the abusing user, up to termination of the abusers account for a Terms of Service violation.
