RTFW

The Robloxian Film & Television Wiki Rating System (RFTW Rating System) is a feature designed by the Robloxian Film & Television Wikia admins to give potential viewers information about the content of films and television shows, and what to expect. RFTW ratings are unofficial, however it is the most common system in use for ROBLOX films and is endorsed by the wikia.

Legalities

Because the ratings system is managed and implemented in a significantly different way than other systems, the RFTW rating system does end up with unique problems. In most cases on the wikia, it is the director themselves that decide the rating of their film, rather than a committee or board. Perception of each individual rating can differ between one another, and what one person thinks is appropriate as a rating for a film, may not be what others believe is appropriate. Therefore the accuracy of this system is somewhat varied. The wikia does encourage community discussion on movie ratings to ensure that the film receives the most appropriate rating for its content.

The system does not have any actual power to prevent people from watching films and productions that may not be appropriate for them to watch. The rating system is merely a guideline for people to decide for themselves whether they should be watching the production or not, and to inform them prior on potentially offensive content. RFTW is not liable for any problems or issues that may arise out of use of the system.

No nudity, gore, sex scenes or drug use are present in the motion picture.
