The FAQ explained the ratings and some of the warnings:[3]

15. What's this G, G+, GV etc in the ratings drop down menu?

The old rating system which is no longer in place [G, PG, R, NC-17 etc] followed the US movie standards and not writing standard. Therefore those ratings don't really help or apply to fanfiction. This is the rating system they thought should be implemented: G General A story of a non adult nature incorporating no sexual situations of any sort, a minimum of adult language, or violence, a rating which would be used for non-slash, non-het stories.

G+ General + As for G, but with a fair degree of violence, some adult language, and hints of adult situations.

GV General/Violence A general story incorporating extensive levels of violence.

M Mature The first level of slash/het fiction, which is set in a non-G setting but has the lowest level of adult situations, language and/or violence. This would be for those stories which are slash or het but which are very moderately so.

M+ Mature + Slash/het fiction which incorporates sexual situations to a somewhat graphic degree and some violence.

MV Mature/Violent

Slash/het fiction incorporating graphic violent situations.

18. What do some of the warnings mean?

Chan - A participant in sex that is under the age of 16 and is involved with an adult.

BDSM - Bondage/Discipline/Sado-Masochism

MPReg - Male Pregnancy

Non-con - Non-consensual sexual situations

Incest - Sexual situations involving family members

Beastiality - Sexual situations involving an animal

Threesome - Sexual situations involving 3 or more people

OOC-ness - Character in a story that is not considered close to canon; truly Out-of-character
