Rules & Guildelines
By maintaining an account here at ManiaExchange, you agree to follow these rules. Breaching these rules can result in certain penalties; comment deletion, award deletion, track deletion, post deletion, replay deletion and so forth.

Welcome to Mania Exchange, a community driven website!

    Our mission statement:
  • Foster a community spirit conducive to the exchange of ideas
  • Empower creators to share their content with others
  • Be a destination where everyone can compete for the fastest time
  • Challenge players by hosting friendly competitions
  • Most importantly, we’re all here to enjoy the game!

    On Mania Exchange you can:
  • Upload a map built in any ManiaPlanet title
  • Download maps from other creators
  • Award a map to show you had fun playing it
  • Upload your best replay on a map
  • Add an author to favourites (heart icon) to keep up with their map releases.


    We strongly encourage the use of English in all public areas of Mania Exchange. This makes it easier for an international audience to communicate on the site. Regardless of the language you use, please try to write with proper grammar, punctuation and spelling so others can easily use a translation tool if needed.

    When you upload your map, the map thumbnail (snapshot) will be used as a screenshot. The snapshot camera can be set in the editor before saving the map. If you want a different screenshot, you can upload a screenshot along with the map. It will be displayed on the map page. Screenshots that show a clear portion of the map are more likely to attract players since they can see what your map is like.

    Uploading a replay on your map will show other players that you value records, and it can start a record hunt that will increase the leaderboard ranking of your map. It can also help you improve as a creator and driver to see how others play your map. So pay it forward by uploading replays on other maps you drive.

    Show appreciation for the maps you enjoy playing by awarding them. This is also your opportunity to provide constructive feedback about the map. Tell the author what specific parts were fun and well made or what can be improved. Awarding maps can help others discover maps they might enjoy.


    Content should be suitable for all ages
  • No inappropriate content (including content shown when the map is played)
  • No foul language

    Treat others with respect
  • Don’t insult, flame, or troll other users
  • Don’t threaten others with violence or harassment
  • Don’t impersonate other people
  • Don’t upload or modify other people's maps without permission and credit

    Keep it honest
  • Don’t link to, or use, cheats or game exploits
  • Don’t link to illegal downloads of software or music
  • Don’t award a map if you built part of the route
  • Award only the maps that you believe deserve it
  • Don't use official tags in map names (ESL, CEP, etc.) unless map has been chosen

    Shortcuts are allowed
  • Leaving the intended path of a map is allowed, as long as you pass through all checkpoints.
    It’s the responsibility of the map author to prevent shortcuts.
  • However, don't drive against Pre-MP4 replays to gain an advantage on maps (e.g. wall-hacking)

  • Don’t be a backseat moderator (trying to enforce the rules yourself).

See something? Say something. Report it to the moderators.
