Save The R - Rated Stories! sign now

On June 6th, Fanfiction.net changed the listing pages so that they only show stories that were G->PG13. Their explanation for doing so was, and I quote, 'to make sure users do no accidentally read higher rated stories.'
Now, authors like myself who write mostly R - rated stories are losing readers because of this! Most viewers forget to change it back to G->R and. thus, don't end up reading a large portion of fanfiction, which is what we write. As I stated before, WE ARE RAPIDLY LOSING READERS. Also, to cope with the sudden loss of readers, many great authors have been forced to dumb-down their stories to get a PG13 rating.
We will not stand for this!
I suggest that Fanfiction.net puts the listing pages back to the way they were before, only this time they can put a pop-up warning on R - rated fanfics telling the person that the story they are about to read is rated R, like they do for the NC17 stories.

    Homepage <a href="http://lamianights.net" target="_new">Lamia Nights</a> Most people don't even see my updates to my series anymore because the newer parts have to be R-rated for content. It's unfair to me that I no longer get readership like

    The choices are simple. Either we start lying and make R fics say pg13, or you change it back. I preferred the old way very much, and this petition is evidence I'm not alone.

    I'm just entering this since I know some people, at least Albedo, only use this rating because they sometimes don't know just what course a story will take over time.

    Homepage Rhiannon's World If the r-rated stories were shown by default, it would be a lot easier to read them, as people keep forgetting about them and therefore do not read them.

    although I am not a member of FFN (yet) I am an avid reader of the fics. By taking out the NC-17 and R-rated fics, FFN is inhibiting the creativity of the writers. ''Unleash your imagination and free your soul,'' that is FFN's moto, so why are you restric
