Suggestion - Forum Rank Selection
« on: May 14, 2017, 06:39:07 am »
At this current point in time, we have only have Royal Navy ranks on our forum profile. As a suggestion, the ability to have equivalents of each rank in the army form.

EG.

Landsman - Recruit
Ordinary Seaman - Private
Able Seaman - Lance Corporal

(Probably not historically accurate but just wanted to illustrate my point for you.)

I propose that we have the ability to select either the Navy or Army rank in our profiles. Not a major nor priority change, it is just nice to have.

Thank you for reading,
Exodus

the ranks are mainly like FSE. How many hours you have relates to your rank on the forums; having two ranking systems sounds neat but would be kind of confusing and hard to keep up with for admins and mods of the forums...idk

Honestly, we should have British army ranks, and French army ranks. Both being equivalent being able to choose either faction for your liking.

A potential list of equivalencies, created by starting at the bottom up to sergeant major and from the top down to ensign and then working out the middle by using a few coy. and bat. postings as "ranks". It's ugly and not entirely accurate, but it covers all the slots the forum uses.

Great idea! We'll take a look at it when we find the time to slot in some forum work.

Right now Dreas (the programmer) is extremely busy working on the game.

Pretty sure the majority of us can be patient considering the game is a little more important than adding forum ranks and other additions.
