Custom forum ranks was created by alecrespi
What about setting up a customized rank system inside this forum (with WW2 themed pictures and description)?

Here you can find actual rank list:

Title    Special    Minimum Post Count    ID
  • New Member    No    0    1
  • Junior Member    No    20    2
  • Senior Member    No    40    3
  • Premium Member    No    80    4
  • Elite Member    No    160    5
  • Platinum Member    No    320    6
  • Administrator    Yes    0    7
  • Moderator    Yes    0    8
  • Spammer    Yes    0    9
  • Banned    Yes    0    10
Something like...
  • Private
  • Private First Class
  • Corporal
  • Sergeant
  • Staff Sergeant
  • First Sergeant
  • Master Sergeant

Any suggestions?

Being a veteran of the U.S. Navy, I would propose using Navy ranks: Seaman Recruit; Seaman Apprentice; Seaman; Petty Officer Third Class; etc.

   

Nah, that was just a joke!

I think this is a good idea. With "Banned" members being designated as "Dishonorably Discharged."

This is a fast list created by Pino:
  • Private
  • Corporal
  • Sergeant
  • Lieutenant
  • Captain
  • Major
  • Colonel
  • General
I do think that both "Spammer" and "Blocked" can be ignored (they will never be visible).

Suggestions for the picture / iconography to be used with this list?

U.S. Army WWII insignia is fine, but it does seem to be the default for things like this.

For something different, my first thought was to go with the Soviets or Germans, but both of these factions used epaulette-based rank insignia that I've long found it difficult to interpret and remember.

Another option besides the U.S. Army would be the British Army, which was broadly similar but not quite the same: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Army_other_ranks_rank_insignia

James, don't forget I can create a "special rank" for some user and then define a "common rank system" with all other users.
So if you have a sort of preference, plese let me know and I'll create a special rank for you!
I.E. I think I'm going to create a "special german rank" for Pino!

Ha! That's great! You're spoiling us with choices!

In that case, then, yes, I would like to use the U,S. Navy system--something like this: uniform-reference.net/insignia/usn/usn_ww2_enlisted.html

In the meantime, as a test, I've applied US Army ranks.
