As you all know, RateMyDrawings strives to be a community for a wide audience of all ages.
We strive to be a PG-13 friendly website, and we always recommend that parents take an active role in monitoring which websites they feel are safe and suitable for their children. Maintaining a PG-13 rated website that consists of user generated content requires constant monitoring, and our moderators work hard at keeping inappropriate content off our community.
However, there are times when it is very difficult for us to judge drawings that are borderline PG-13 rated. For this reason, and to make it even safer for our younger viewers, we have introduced the ability for moderators to flag borderline drawings as "Mature content". Viewing Mature content will require members are NOT 17 years or younger.
It is VERY important to know that we still DO NOT allow any adult content deemed inappropriate for our community. All we are simply doing is putting an extra barrier in front of drawings that, although may be OK for PG-13, they may still offend some viewers. This is an extra precaution that we feel will keep our community even safer for our younger viewers.
Important things to note:
- This is not a green light for members to create inappropriate content
- It will take us some time to go back through previously created drawings and flag them as Mature
- We do not currently allow members to flag their own drawings as Mature, but may consider this in the near future
