What is the new rating system?
The first big change will be the rating system itself. Instead of a numerical system, we’ll be switching to one that’s similar to the ratings used for movies and video games. For example, sites rated Y (Youth) are generally appropriate for all but young children, while sites rated HM (Highly Mature) generally contain content that’s considered inappropriate for everyone, including anonymizers, nudity, erotica, and pornography. You can find out more about the new rating system, or see it in action on a sample report.
How will this affect me?
Around early December, the new ratings will show up in the Accountability Reports and Detailed Browsing Logs. Once that’s in place, we’ll start rolling out some other exciting changes. Filter users will be able to adjust their Filter settings based on the new ratings system, and Accountability Partners will be able to select a “Report Sensitivity Level” for each person they hold accountable. This means you’ll be able to tailor each report to see only the content you think is relevant. (You’ll always be able to see everything in the Detailed Browsing Logs, of course.) We’ll post more about these changes as they get closer.
Once we have completed these changes, there will still be the ongoing task of enhancing the way we evaluate web content in order to place it into the correct category. We are committed to providing you with a high quality service, and we’ll never stop improving our software.
We are excited about these changes, and believe that they will make your job of understanding the Accountability Reports easier. If you have any questions, please comment below or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
