newTumbl relies on ratings to identify and filter content so that you can feel safe browsing the web site. In your account settings, you are provided with options to customize the rating for content you feel comfortable viewing. The system will ensure that you don't encounter unsavory posts or wander into blogs that would make you feel uncomfortable.
In order for the system to work, newTumbl relies on the community as a whole to rate content. Blog publishers are requested to learn what the ratings mean and provide accurate ratings on all published content. Monitors review all content and provide input to our admins who determine a final rating of a post. The system works best when all parties are familiar with and mindful of the ratings guidelines.
Summaries of the guidelines for each rating are listed below. For more detailed information with examples, please check out the Monitor section in our Help Center.
