The Nooblandian Media Guideline System is a media rating system based in the Noobian Union. It launched in 1978.
Before 1978, many television programmes did not really have an offical rating, but some television groups such as Du Bois Television had some sort of way to show what a show was rated by showing three symbols: if a program had a green circle, it was for all ages. If there was an orange symbol, it means the program should be watched under the supervision of an adult.
Formation of the NMBS
In 1977, the United Noobian Nations decided on a rating system that would be used nationwide. The organisation was formed in 1978.

- The rating is required to be shown at the beginning of every program on a channel and after every commnercial break unless the channel shares a feed with a channel outside the United Noobian Nations (ex. a Pan-European feed). If that's the case the program's rating can be shown via the information about the program or the guide.
- (This is a rule as of May 2005.) The show's rating can change by the episode, not the segment (ex. one episode is rated 9 in one episode and 6 in another)
- The rating cannot act abnormally (one episode rated G, another rated 13)
- A viewer discrection advisory must be shown before any program rated 13, 18 or X. It is optional for anything rated 6 or 9 (if it has more than one content descriptor or is the highest rating on the network).
