http://www.fictionpress.com/secure/story/story_tab_guide.php has the guidelines, but they pull from http://www.fictionratings.com. (Sorry, can't make a link to that site for some reason.)
Here's my guidelines:
If your story won't offend a kindergartner's parent, then it's K.
If it will cause a child's parent and hir kindergarten teacher to have a ... 'spirited discussion' about what is or is not appropriate for the classroom, then it's a K+.
If a teenager doesn't find the story boring, then it's at least a T.
But if it causes a teenager's parent and hir teacher to have that spirited discussion, then it's an M.
(And, if it causes a teen to hurriedly shut down the computer / close the window when someone walks in, it's an MA.)2/15/2010 . Edited 2/15/2010 #1
