Here's the current list of ranks (as of August 8 2010).

These don't provide major bonuses, but a high post count/rank is an indication of one's commitment to the forum. This helps if you would like to become a trusted member (access to additional, restricted forums), and/or want to become a moderator/adminstrator, etc.

It's because military ranks are seriously overused. Not that I have anything against military ranks

That's my point. There's virtually nothing else, unless you use something like a food chain (faeces, dung beetle, whatever eats a dung beetle, etc.) or social status (homeless man, unemployed, blue-collar worker, etc.). I think you should stick with the military ramks, however. It's easy to understand and most people prefer it.

on a more serious note, try incorprating japanese ranking systems like:
Japanese Officer ranks are the same for IJA and IJN. The point of difference is in the translation. If we speak of British terms then the translation is somewhat
different than American terms. American terms are used for the following:

Taisho=*General*********=Admiral
Chujo*=*Lt General******=Vice-Admiral
Shosho=*Major General***=Rear Admiral

Taisa*=*Colonel*********=Captain
Chusa*=*Lt Colonel******=Commander
Shosa*=*Major***********=Lt Commander
Taii**=*Captain*********=Lieutenant
Chui**=*Lieutenant******=Lieutenant(JG)
Shoi**=*2nd Lt**********=Ensign

It becomes a problem to compare the enlisted ranks with American enlisted ranks. There were also changes in the Japanese Naval enlisted ranks after select dates
which add to the problems.

IJA Enlisted RANKS (with approximate equivalents)
Juni***= Warrant Officer
Socho**= Sergeant Major
Gunso**= Sergeant
Gocho**= Corporal
Heicho*= Lance Corporal (leading Private)
Jotohei= Superior Private
Ittohei= Private First Class
Nitohei= Private

IJN Enlisted Ranks (with approximate equivalents):

PRE-June 1941
Joto (Koku) Heiso**=**(Air) Chief Petty Officer
Itto (Koku) Heiso**=**(Air) Petty Officer First Class
Nito (Koku) Heiso**=**(Air) PO2c
Santo (Koku) Heiso*=**(Air) PO3c
Itto (Koku) Hei****=**(Air) Airman 1c
Nito (Koku) Hei****=**(Air) Airman 2c
Santo (Koku) Hei***=**(Air) Airman 3c

POST-June 1941
Joto (Hiko) Heiso**=**(Flight) Chief Petty Officer
Itto (Hiko) Heiso**=**(Flight) PO1c
Nito (Hiko) Heiso**=**(Flight) PO2c
Santo (Hiko) Heiso*=**(Flight) PO3c
Itto (Hiko) Hei****=**Flyer 1c
Nito (Hiko) Hei****=**Flyer 2c
Santo (Hiko) Hei***=**Flyer 3c


because the japs are AWESOME

Being a Bleach fan, I guess we could go with that ranking system. Probably incorporate Japanese ranks as fillers.

Seeing as that never happened, does the system really need changing
and if so, to what? Question
