FRAO — Fan Rated Suitable For Adults Only

FRC - (formerly G/PG) Suitable for anyone. No swearing, only the mildest and most general sexual references and violence. Yes, Bambi's mother may die and someone can make a poopy joke, but nobody has genetalia and all limbs will remain connected to the people they start out on.

FRT - (formerly PG-13) Suitable for anyone mature enough to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This covers anything that might be seen in an average episode of the show. Very mild swearing is fine, as is some nudity and moderate violence. Fade to black sexuality and frank discussion of sexual concepts are fine here.

FRM - (formerly R) Suitable for older teens and adults. Your characters may swear like sailors, have actual - albeit slightly fuzzy - sex, and get really graphic with their violence. Sensitive subjects such as sexual violence, torture, child abuse, etc. may be discussed frankly.

FRAO - (formerly NC17) Suitable ONLY for mature adults. This is where the extremely graphic sex and Kill Bill level violence live.
