Placing ranks next to a persons name creates a class system and can be intimidating to newer collectors. Everyone should be on a level playing field.
The following rank information is posted on another thread:
Here is a quick overview of the rank system I have set up. May be a little far fetched given the small amount of collectors, but it gives incentive to post all you can. First is the rank, followed by the number of posts needed to obtained the rank. As you obtain new ranks it will be shown on your posts and profile with a new shoulderboard icon. It follows the modern CF rank system.
So far the highest rank a registered member can obtain will be Colonel. This may change in the future depending on the success of the forum.
Private Recruit - Rank upon registering
Private - 25 posts
Corporal - 50 posts
Master Corporal - 100 posts
Sergeant - 200 posts
Warrant Officer - 250 posts
Master Warrant Officer - 300 posts
Chief Warrant Officer - 350 posts
Officer Cadet - 450 posts
Second Lieutenant - 550 posts
Lieutenant - 600 posts
Captain - 650 posts
Major - 750 posts
Lieutenant Colonel - 800 posts
Colonel - 1000 posts
Just to add,
As things go along here I will try to accommodate ranks from other services if a member asks for it. I am not sure yet of I can make this an automatic feature. I may just have to create the ranks and icons for anyone who asks. For now we will stick with army ranks until the need arises.
