Equity [Abstract]  
The dividend reinvestment feature of Main Street’s dividend reinvestment and direct stock purchase plan (the “DRIP”) provides for the reinvestment of dividends on behalf of its stockholders, unless a stockholder has elected to receive dividends in cash. As a result, if Main Street declares a cash dividend, its stockholders who have not “opted out” of the DRIP by the dividend record date will have their cash dividend automatically reinvested into additional shares of MSCC common stock. The share requirements of the DRIP may be satisfied through the issuance of shares of common stock or through open market purchases of common stock by the DRIP plan administrator. Newly issued shares will be valued based upon the final closing price of MSCC’s common stock on the valuation date determined for each dividend by Main Street’s Board of Directors. Shares purchased in the open market to satisfy the DRIP requirements will be valued based upon the average price of the applicable shares purchased, before any associated brokerage or other costs. Main Street’s DRIP is administered by its transfer agent on behalf of Main Street’s record holders and participating brokerage firms. Brokerage firms and other financial intermediaries may decide not to participate in Main Street’s DRIP but may provide a similar dividend reinvestment plan for their clients.
