Make it more clear what PG13 according to the MPAA

Chris D 4 years ago updated by Ryu (Support Admin) 4 years ago 3

This is probably one of my biggest pet peeve when it comes to art sites. Some of the stuff in the Popular section of the site is not PG-13 (focusing on butts, lude poses). To me, that's indicating that the users of the site don't know the rules.


The MPAA's criteria for PG-13 should posted on the rules page and a link to it the rules page should be obvious on the upload page.

Thank you for your concern.


We have our own criteria already created for this issue, and apart from a few minor changes, we feel it has been doing a good job. If in doubt, it can be flagged or reported for us to verify.

We're actually in the process of revising our policies slightly, and should be releasing an updated version of the Code of Conduct soon. Hopefully this is suitable.

Content for a General Audience:
  • PG-13 only, meaning no visible genitalia, and no excessive gore or blood
    • minor amounts of blood are okay, but if in doubt flag it as Mature or ask a member of staff
  • No fetish artwork under General

ive seen maybe 2 pictures out of 3-5 pages I bothered to scroll through from the popular page that might belong in the mature rather than General category. I feel as if their current rules on this section while brief, are more than descriptive enough to get the point across.


I fail to see whatever issue you are referring to.


Pretty sure age ratings differ wildly between differing forms of media, pretty sure the rules that apply to movies do not directly apply to videogames, books or comics, let alone art [and that's before you even get into different regions.]


Not only that, but in many [all?] cases, age ratings systems like that are entirely optional and not enforced by law.


PG-13 is far too nebulous, the only even particularly valid guidelines to follow are for what automatically class something as 18+ because that's more of a legal issue.



Hell, I don't know if this is still the case of not but take comics for example. When Circles came out the rules were that if it dealt with homosexuality it automatically got an 18 rating [even if it would be classed as G if it was straight.]
