Question about Pauper

So what I cant figure out is what  sets are allowed in Pauper play.  Most things Ive read said you can play Pauper Std, Pauper Modern, etc, but the constructed queus on MODO dont specify other than to say "Pauper".  What is the general format when considering Pauper play?
they are Classic Pauper
there is no official support for Standard or Modern Pauper on MTGO

Wild guess on it, but would probably say legacy/vintage, where all sets are a go.  The other thing you have to watch for is that I believe if a card was once ever printed in the rarity pauper allows it is legal even if it gets printed or originally printed at a higher rarity not allowed.
Online is classic pauper. This consists of all commons on MTGO except the two banned cards, Frantic Search and Cranial Plating. 

Paper pauper is not an official format so there is no official banlist. It is generally played with all commonc ards that are allowed in Legacy/Vintage.

As for Modern/Standard occasionally I see people play these online but they are not supported formats. Standard pauper is awful though. It consists of variations of one deck because of the limited amount of playable cards.
