This page is intended to document significant changes to the Movie Rules over the course of the site’s history. This is far from a complete list, with emphasis being placed on more recent rule changes.

Complete Rewrite (2021-11-27)

We have completely rewritten, reorganized, and simplified our rules page. The original rules page is now available at Movie Rules / Legacy. Major changes to the rules will continue to be made in the coming months.

Tier Revamp (2021-8-14)

A complete revamp of what we previously called Tiers was launched. Instead of tiers, they are now Classes. With the exception of Stars which operates exactly how it did before, Classes are determined by game and by goal. The Standard class replaces Vault, movies that have standard goals and use standard games go here by default, regardless of perceived entertainment value. Standard goals and standard games currently mean whatever goals and games were acceptable in Vault under the old system, but we plan to expand this shortly. The Moons class is now for movies whose games and/or goals are non-standard. The entertainment requirement for this class remains the same.
As of September 14, 2021, movies have been sorted between Standard and Moons. If there's anything that's in the wrong place, bring it up in the class changes thread.

Clarification regarding second loops (2021-9-13)

We made the following clarifications for second loops for standard:

Forgoes Major Skip Glitch added to Standard (2021-10-1)

We added a new goal to Standard: Forgoes Major Skip Glitch. If a run fits the tag description, and there is some sort of consensus that it fits, it can be considered for publication regardless of entertainment.
