I'm not a fan of the impy guard rank system.

Why can't we use inquisition?I think it would fit perfectly, even if they were post-horus they still fight heressy

Could be like...
penitant
scribe
sage
indentured guard
combat servator
inquisitorial storm trooper
allied marine
adeptus soriatas
deathwatch marine
grey knight
acolyte
inquisitor
inquisitor lord
high inquisitor
etc

Except you know, spelled right.

Reserve "Commisar" for moderators, essentially the overseer of the entire army. Good stuff, tho, guys. Oh, and delete Brigadier. Seems too English Army for the 40k world.

I think a minimalisation of any ranks would be good. Maybe 5 or so. 14-15 seems a lot. I disagree that it will make some sort of elitist forum, and I thin it gives newbies a good idea of who the regulars are, and who only drops in once in a while.

LOL :lol:


I used to really like the way the old Dakka forums had it set up, with all the ranks being used according to the army that a person chose when they joined the board. So someone who cited the Imperium as their army would start as a Citizen while those of us who went with Chaos were Spawn I believe. Not that we want to rip off Dakka or anything, I just liked the way that worked. Was kinda cool.

I was thinking the same thing.

But, perhaps, Moderator should stay as "Moderator" so when they post a "Hey, cool it down." type post, people will listen.

You could easily go for something like we do at flame on and make the ranks random insults for a laugh, the more you post the more you are insulted :lol:

chump
chumpaloompa
chumpanzee
chumparoo

etc

though obviously not copying that directly.

how about:

Chump
Assdolphin
Nobber
Cockthrister
Slaghammer
Weapon
Buttmonkey
Assweasel
Tit
Chubber

much more fun :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

As for mods - God will suffice i think, that'll make ppl listen.
Or they could each chose a primarch (if you wanna be 40k themed).

What is it that Ibram Gaunt is ranked? Colonel-Commissar? Maybe we could do "Commissar-Moderator" or something similar. As to the others:

0-99 Trooper
100-249 Sergeant
250-499 Veteran Sergeant
500-999 Lieutenant
1000-1999 Captain
2000-2999 Major
3000-3999 Colonel
4000-4999 General
5000+ Captain-General / Lord Castellan / Lord Marshal

Any moderators get the title: Commissar-Moderator

How's that?

I still think inquisitorial ranks are a better idea. They fit better with the heresy theme (Heresy as a verb rather than a noun) and, well, as a space marines player, I find the idea of being branded as a flashlight-toting, flack-armored squisy to be embarassing ;-)

Actually, I like the idea of the Inquisitorial ranks too, on thinking some more aobut it. I still think that 15 is too many, so here are my thoughts:

0-99 Penitant
100-249 Quill-Servator
250-499 Guardsman / Guardswoman
500-999 Brother-Marine / Battle-Sister
1000-1999 Grey Knight
2000-2999 Justicar
3000-3999 Acolyte
4000-4999 Inquisitor
5000+ Inquisitor Lord

And for our hard-working mods: Inquisitor-Moderator (just 'cause I like the idea!)

How's that?

if you wanted to do inq (does sound good) then following on with this theme:

0-99 Serf
100-249 Savant
250-499 Henchman
500-999 Excrutiatior (old Inq rank from 1st/2nd ed
1000-1999 Interragator
2000-2999 Inquisitor
3000-3999 Inquisitor Lord
4000-4999 Grand Master
5000+ High Lord Ordo Solar (been that this is our "sector")

To me mods should be Witchhunters, Witchfinders or the like.

I kinda like that idea. Keep the mods on a separate naming convention simply to prevent confusion for people who are new to the boards.

Room for a spanner?

We've done a complete u-turn with regards to the rank situation.

Screw "rival" forum ranks. They don't own the copyright...

Plans of a Heresy-Online Traitor Legion Competition are being finalised so let's steer back toward the chaos theme.

Maybe expand or work on Tahaals post?

1- Scum (heh, easy enough to get away from)
2- Mutant
3- Cultist
4- Heretic
5- Traitor
6- Agitator
7- Chaos Spawn
8- Chaos Marine
9- Possesed
10- Chosen
11- Arch-Heretic
12- Lord
13- Exhalted Champion
14- Daemon Prince
15- Daemon Primarch

and the mods would each be a greater Daemon/God of Chaos?
