I say we use Daimyo Otaku as the highest ranking non-offensive otaku.

Woo!

If its gonna be that, have master otaku become shogun otaku, and then samurai otaku and so on down the line.

Okay, I couldn't resist the temptation any longer! ::)  I've looked into pre-meiji era social/military titles, and gone ahead with new Forum ranks and post number requirements.  I hope everyone likes them!  Here's what I've set:
  • Gaijin
  • Ronin
  • Samurai
  • Daimyo
  • Shogun
With the nifty ideas that were posted, I think I'll just have to do this again in a few months!  (I really want to use "screaming headless otaku"! ;D)  So if you've got any more fun ideas for titles, please post them!  How about that Gundam ranking system?  Or maybe a system based on a specific popular anime?  (Demon-Fodder, Wandering Monk, Priest/Priestess, Half-Demon, Full-Demon?)  Oh, that's right, the titles should be minimally offensive. :P

Remember that there are five seven ranks we need to name!    Thanks again for everyone's input, and have fun!

Are you able to change the name of Administrator to something nifty too?

I'd think that titles such as Administrator, Moderator, and Staff Member need to stay the same so there is no chance for confusion amongst the newcomers.  You could conceivably do something such as Administrator Kami, although that one leads us back to the original complaint.

Why, yes!  It appears that we CAN change Admin and Mod titles! :o  Shweet!  Thanks, Akari!

*sigh*  You're probably right, KORfan!  Your logic is excellent.  (Allthough strictly speaking, I'm proud to say that this Forum also offers plenty of chances for confusion amongst the experienced users! ;D  Just kidding!)

;D  Now can anyone figure out something fun to do with "Moderator"?  (Hopefully that still kinda implies/sounds like the person is a Moderator!)  I think there's lots of room for improvement on "Modotaku"! ::)

As long as we're counting posts, perhaps we could count syllables, too.  <sigh>

With the current system, you should change 'Newbie' to 'Ashigaru Otaku.'

Well it looks like the Moderator title has already been changed to Moderator-san but if we'd still like to explore possibilities for something more nifty and fun-sounding (but not offensive) how about "Moddu-sempai".  And while were at it how about changing "Staff Member" to something else like Yakuza Member, no that's kina offensive, heheh.
