Hi. This page is to help those of you whom have trouble understanding our ratings system. The ratings are clearly described on the images below, and the sample image shows you all the relevant areas of the ratings images.
The reason we use the FictionRatings.Com ratings scale as opposed to the standard G/PG/PG-13/R/NC-17 scale that most are used to, is because those ratings have been copywitten by Motion Picture Association of America and can not be used without their permission.
Some have suggested that since we don't charge money we could just use them and no one will care, we don't want to take that chance. Many people have put alot of hard work into building TGFiction.Net into what it is today, and we do want to see it all get thrown away because we made a stupid decision.
