At this point I'd rather not add additional ratings until ratings can be reworked. I say this because I feel that all of these missing ratings (that are in this thread) should be something we could select, but also that adding them all into the drop-down list may be super annoying, especially since it would then space them out and most people are only using ACB, Cero, ELSPA, ESRB and PEGI options. Secondary to that is probably ClassInd.

If there is a better way to select ratings to put on entries then I would do it, but really would like to wait until a better way is determined.

Do we have a request to add SMECCV to the ratings list in the DB?
Would it be reasonable to request 2 drop downs?  1st dropdown is rating board, 2nd drop down is rating.

A bit more strict, but could also limit rating board options by region.  CERO isn't an option for NA, PEGI not an option for JP, ESRB not an option for EU, etc.

There is a lot of crossover in rating levels but not quite enough, besides having 2 drop downs as plain without any checks could result in incorrect combinations being selected. And it is not definite that ratings aren't available in other countries. The ideal way would be to limit initial rating selections to a region, and then allow the choice of additional ratings if the one you want to add is not listed. This would entail being able to set a region or country ID to a category, as well as to a rating. We can brainstorm about ways to accomplish it.

It would be a dynamically linked list.  First dropdown selection populates second dropdown's possible selections.

ie. selecting ESRB in the first drop down would then populate the second dropdown with possible ESRB ratings only.

The ClassInd (Classificação Indicativa / Advisory Rating) is the rating system used in Brazil since 2001, before that the ESRB rating system was used by some Brazilian distributors but without any translation from English or being adapted to the Brazilian culture this system was considered inappropriate for the Brazilian market (leaving most consumers uninformed by the meaning of those rating) and so this rating system was created.

ER - Especialmente Recomendado para crianças e adolescentes (Especially recommended for children and teenagers). This rating was abandoned in 2007.

L - Livre (General Audience)

10 - Não recomendado para menores de dez anos (Not recommended for minors under ten)

12 - Não recomendado para menores de doze anos (Not recommended for minors under twelve)

14 - Não recomendado para menores de catorze anos (Not recommended for minors under fourteen)

16 - Não recomendado para menores de dezesseis anos (Not recommended for minors under sixteen)

18 - Não recomendado para menores de dezoito anos (Not recommended for minors under eighteen)

greetings to all. Do you have any plans to add ClassInd to the Rating options? It is an old and unified classification in Brazil, its initial release was in 2001, and revised in 2007. We already have many platforms with several games that need this classification and for now we are using Description to add games.
