Stream rating is an important part of your stream. It allows people to gauge whether your content is appropriate to their own expectations.
- A Family-Friendly Stream is one that is considered to be suitable for all members of an average family. Parents and young children can watch this stream together
- A Teen rated stream has content that is generally suitable for ages 13 and up. It may contain violence, suggestive themes, crude humor, minimal blood and infrequent use of strong language.
- An 18+ rated stream is generally suitable for persons ages 18 and up. It may contain intense violence (simulated - not real), blood and gore (simulated - not real), sexual content and/or strong language
With that in mind, here are things that may cause a Guardian staff member to intervene and change the rating of your channel.
Your stream should be rated for the game you are playing. If the game you are playing is rated M by the ESRB, your stream must be rated 18+. If the game you are playing is rated Teen, your stream need to be rated at least Teen (you can choose to rate it 18+)
Should the streamer choose to use a camera, their attire must meet criteria depending on their stream rating. For more information on what is acceptable attire for different stream ratings, please refer to the Streamer Clothing Requirements article
Streamers using age restricted products in any form on stream must set their rating to 18+. This includes (but is not limited to): cigarettes, cigars, pipes, vaping (with or without nicotine), chewing tobacco, and alcohol.
We currently do not have any rules on language and stream rating, however we do ask that if you plan to use excessive adult language you set your stream to 18+. Hate speech is never tolerated on Mixer, regardless of the stream rating.
