MA/R Rating for Fanfiction.net

2,031 Signatures Goal: 2,000

There is another petition for this--with 10,000+ signatures. Let's catch up, guys!

"Please note we would like to clarify the content policy we have in place since 2002. FanFiction.Net follows the Fiction Rating system ranging from Fiction K to Fiction M. Although Fiction Ratings goes up to Fiction MA, FanFiction.Net since 2002 has not allowed Fiction MA rated content which can contain adult/explicit content on the site. FanFiction.Net only accepts content in the Fiction K through Fiction M range. Fiction M can contain adult language, themes and suggestions. Detailed descriptions of physical interaction of sexual or violent nature is considered Fiction MA and has not been allowed on the site since 2002."

This petition is in the hopes that FanFiction.net will institute an MA rating for "Explicit Content for Mature Adults Only," instead of further tightening a creative block on the writers on the site. Writers do not appreciate feeling constrained by a previously accomodating FFnet, and being in fear of their work being taken down because of a debatable line between M Rated and MA Rated stories. Nor do many of us want to migrate to AdultFanFiction's website for the simple reason that FFnet has enabled many of us to establish a known reader base (thanks to feature's like "Author Alert,") that migration may/will lose. FFnet has a great community, great support and is a favored choice by many and can only stay this way by retaining a good standing with it's user base. Creative constraints and hard "crack downs" with tightening policies is no way of achieving this on a site who's purpose is "Unleash your imagination,". We can fix this with some flexibility - adding an MA rating, and some light enforcement of encouraging writers to label their work as such. -- Amanjot

    Who cares if there is lemon in stories? If that is the writer's vision, who are the admin to go and take it down and report the writers? People should be free to write what they want no matter what. There should absolutely be an MA ration on fanfiction.net. I will boycott fanfiction.net until there is at least an MA rating.

    If it's artistic, it should be worth keeping.
