MA/R Rating for Fanfiction.net

2,026 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

    I write it yes, but I haven't uploaded it. And I also love reading it.

    I love to read these stories, but some of my favorite stories keep disappearing. You should create a MA rating and make it so only people who have accounts that verify they are over 18 can read or post them.

    There's nothing wrong with lemons, smut or sexual situations. If this helps keep those jerks that like to harass people that write such then just put up a MA rating, it'd make things easy. Take power away from trolls and give responsibility to the readers.

    I don't really see the difference between M and MA, both have to do with sex so what's the point then if it's not allowed
