Users on deviantART began ripping and rigging parts to work in MMD. After a burst in popularity a majority of the MMD centered groups banned the submission of Polygon Love edits due to the fact that the game makers have not given direct permission for such use.
The amount of work that goes into converting a PL model to MMD takes some skill as the models were never intended for third party programs, so usually one can find that a number of users have worked together to complete a model for public use. While the end result of ripping is a functioning model (and or hair, clothing, objects) it should be noted that facial expression and physics take time to add.
