Basically it's a more gradual increase in status, until the famed AIM Legend rank. The irony is that people who would qualify for such ranks probably already have special modding badges so we might never see these new ones. But they are there. Just to keep moderators on their toes, spammers aren't what they used to be.

So.... did Kaerar just lose two ranks?

Oh well, at least I'm not a lowly commander anymore. Smile Thanks for the promo, Shanga.

Actually I revamped the post count a bit, so the new ranks show more frequently (at least in PMs). And I just found out MM outranks me, lol. He's a Marshall now, I am just a lowly General... hehe...

You and Kaerar should be both Colonels.

AIM Legend now is set insanely high, to give me time to come up with a version slightly better.

My next important change will be to transform special ranks into "medals", allowing the post rank to show up. There are a lot of things to consider though, so don't expect it soon.

What spelling of lieutenant are you using?

The badge rank is misspelled 'liutenant'.

Looking good there Shanga Smile

I am liking the forum revamp, though it takes a bit of remembering where the forums are!

Yah, I noticed that too, maybe it is a typo? Smile

I really like the hot links at the top, this is a great idea, although it does use up some screen real estate, a dynamic menu may work better for real estate, but not sure if the software allows that.

I think it should be spelled "Loo-tenant" as in "tenant of a loo". Wink

I think the real estate presupposes that new users will find the Big Shiny Buttons difficult to ignore when they come looking for help with something.

Well, the Sergeant rank was misspelled all the years (and still is), why should the lieutenant fare better Wink

The English pronounce it 'Lef-tennant' so where is the 'Rightennant'?

Both typos corrected. Thanks for the heads-up.

AJAX dynamic stuff isn't available in UBB (this version at least).

While you are at it, the Captain's bars do not sit in the center of the badge, they are shifted to the right somewhat.

Yep, fixed that too now. Guess last night my eyes were too tired, I remember shifting it manually to right as it didn't seem centered... oh well.

as far as i know the equivalent of one european (military) marshall is a 'general of the armies' (george washington and blackjack pershing - that's it) in them colonies, so why on earth should a general address some freaking state-trooper/marshal sir?

You need to curb your tone when addressing your superiors "Lieutenant" or is that "Private". Wink

Rufus T. Firefly is not a general, he is the president of Freedonia.

That would be a demotion, seeing that as president he is the head of his country's armed forces anyway Wink
