MA/R Rating for Fanfiction.net

2,042 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

    Writing is a sacred process. Being censored during and/or after trying to create something you see in your head and need to put into words makes it less about the story and more about the story police. Remember burning of books... deleting stories is just as bad. I didn't include my Penname for fear of being deleted for cause or not.

    If sites likes like YouTube and Twitch now understand the need to allow people to post mature content with a warning label on it. Then a websites like FictionPress.com and FanFiction.net need to get with the times. Youtube forces people to rate their videos and even forces people to be logged into their account with an appropriately specified age attached. Twitch simply has a warning that indicates the channel is for mature audiences. Obviously this isn't that hard to do and in todays age, should be a given in any creative community.

    I have been going to Fanfiction Net for years, found it to be a wonderful, easy to explore site with many-many stories to read. I only have one complaint about Fanfiction Net; it is far to restrictive. The way the administrators bully the writers, comply to our rigid orders or we will delete everything you've written and ban you with no real warning. I have seen this done. Many writers I love have stopped writing because of this. So many fanfics lost... I've cried over it; and I'm just a fan of these works, I'm not the one to breathe life into them... so... yes please give the writhers leave to write as they please as long as there are ' warnings ' and disclaimers at the top of the story clearly marked I cannot fathom why any of this is a problem aside from some people being controlling A-holes.-- Christine'Marie&Sparrow p.s I've signed every petition I've come across to save the writers and their stories from needless hate.

    "Unleash your imagination," they said.

    "Sorry, no MA fics allowed," they said.
