I feel like it's important to keep in mind context and think of a way to implement content/trigger warnings while designing your rating system, because I feel it would be hard to implement after the fact and there will be some overlap. It's difficult because there are plenty of adults that are just fine playing a game with sexual content, but not something with a rape scene or even a mention of it, and it's not feasible to only play games made for children in order to avoid it.

If you could manage it, finding a way to either tie in trigger warnings to your age/maturity level ratings or come up with a tagging system for triggers would be great. A tagging system could work like the existing one, but without a limit of 10, and users could blacklist certain tags and either have games using that tag hidden completely, or they get a warning when attempting to view a page tagged with it, and a prompt asking if they want to continue, yes or no . The content/trigger warning tags could show up in the same place, under More Information.

Don't have much to say for the age/maturity rating system itself that hasn't already been said, but wanted to make sure I at least brought this up so that it could be considered.

If you are an 18+ adult and need 'trigger warnings' by others to get through life, then perhaps you should get off the internet :P

It is not the responsibility of ANYONE else to account for infantilized inadequate pseudo-children masquerading as adults and demanding that others cater to them.  That's how CHILDREN make demands.  They are not adults and not suitable to be treated as adults so therefore they should be denied access to adult content without further question or consideration.  Take your trigger warnings and bugger the hell off the net already.

Literally the only people that I believe could possibly have a strong case for desiring 'trigger' warnings would be military veterans with PTSD.  That's about the only type of group I could sympathize with to some extent but I still wouldn't feel 'trigger' warnings are a good idea.  The individual needs treatment and society should not be required to bend over backwards for their individual situation.
