Here is a new rating system that will be used for the videos on this wiki. This one is only used for videos allowed. Anything else is given the X or R ratings and cannot be used (X) or can only be used for specific pages (R).

Since anyone younger than thirteen has no business even being on Wikia, the ratings for under 13s are rarely used.

This system has been released into the public domain, so anyone can self-apply it to the videos used on this wiki.

Standard ratings Edit

These come in two categories:

Advisory categories Edit

These have no restriction.

  • G: General audiences (rarely used).
  • PG: Parental guidance suggested between 8 and 10 years old.
  • M: Parental guidance recommended between 8 and 10 years old.
  • 7: Unsuitable for those under 7.
  • 13: Unsuitable for those under 13.
  • 15: Unsuitable for those under 15.

Restricted categories Edit

Access to these videos should be locked by a confirmation.

  • M15: Under 15s must be accompanied by an adult.
  • R15: Ages 15 and up only.
  • M17: Under 17s must be accompanied by an adult.
  • R17: Ages 17 and up only.
  • R18: Ages 18 and up only. Used for flagged videos.
    • You must sign up to view these videos.

Other ratings Edit

Restricted Edit

  • R: Prohibited from viewing on a page, unless it is an exception listed in the bad image list. Anything with this rating is on this list. If this is added to another page, anyone who added it shall face:
    • First time: 1 week block
    • Second time: 1 month block
    • Third time: 1 year block
    • Fourth time: Permanent ban.
  • X: Prohibited from viewing on any page. Images in the bad image list belong here. Anything with this rating belongs in the bad image list.
    • Anyone who adds one to a page shall face:
      • First time: 1 year block
      • Second time: 5 year block
      • Third time: Permanent ban

Miscellaneous Edit

  • E: Exempt from classification, but viewer discretion is still advised.
  • 0: No rating.
    • After the content has been reviewed, it will be given another rating.

Consumer advice Edit

There are 4 main and 7 secondary content descriptors, acceptable in all but the G rating. They may be applied with a rating's context.

Up to five content descriptors can be applied at once, and if the count would otherwise exceed five, only the main descriptor (if applicable) is used.

Main content descriptors Edit

  • D: Suggestive dialogue. This usually means that it talks about sex.
    • R18 is a special case. It generally applies its D descriptor with S.
  • L: Strong or coarse language. Most of the language is well within the boundaries of a 15 rating.
  • S: Sexual content.
  • V: Any type of violence.

Secondary content descriptors Edit

  • A: Adult themes. Usually means content not covered by any other descriptor.
  • F: Flashing lights.
  • H: Horror scenes. This indicates certain types of violence not already covered by the V descriptor that may be emotionally damaging (like a horror movie).
  • I: Imitable behavior. Most of these are well within the boundaries of an I descriptor.
  • P: Paranormal scenes: Indicates certain types of horror not already covered by the H descriptor, like ghosts.
  • R: Rude/mean behavior. These include insults not already covered by the L descriptor.
  • U: Drug use.
