For ratings, these are the generally universally-understood way to go: G: Readable by anyone. PG: Still readable by anyone, perhaps slight sex references. PG-13: Strong language, non-graphic violence and a deeper foray into sex references, provided that it's not explicit. R: This is where it gets interesting. More graphic violence and more explicit sex. NC-17: Explicit sexual content, blood-guts-and-gore violence are the domain of NC-17.
*Disclaimers required; we'd like not get sued. That tends to ruin everyone's day.
5. Some people enjoy the Bon Scott era preferably more than Brian Johnson, and same goes vice-versa. Please, treat everyone with an equal respect.
6. You may offer helpful critique. But do be careful, there is a difference between 'trying to help' and flaming. All flames will be deleted, and flamers will be banned. Trolls and any other general unpleasantness will not be tolerated either. End of story.
7. Betas are short of hand and if you wish to volunteer as one, please consult either myself (already a beta, stormy_mayday) or hellz_happyface, thank you.
