How about something based on giant monster films?  I'm not exactly sure how the rankings could go, but you could do something like

Mothra
Rodan
Mecha Godzilla
King Gidorah
Godzilla (or gojira, if you prefer)

mods - Raymond Burr
admins -- Destroy All Monsters
--------------------------------------------

The other idea that hit me was trying something Gundam  based.  I'm sure someone else can come up with a better version of this that I will.

8th MS team
Mobile Suit Gundam
MSG Zeta
MSG Double Zeta
Char's Counterattack

Amaru Rei
Char Aznable
(or call someone a Newtype, andmaybe use Federation Administrator)

Looking back over the historic list of suggestions (to make sure I wasn't duplicating) I do still like Akari's schoolgirl system (with my slight modifications and using "idol singer school girl").  You could use Head Teacher and Principal (or maybe Gym Teacher) for the mods & admins, or maybe Class Representative and Student Council President.

I like those additions to Akari's list. My only worry is perhaps some males not wanting to be called 'girls', but then again, some of you guys I'm sure wouldn't mind...you know who you are... ;)

Unless of course you could changing it from male to female depending on which gender the user selected.

How about the 5 elements listed from Miyamoto Musashi's text Gorin no sho (The Book of Five Rings)?  (a more detailed explenation for those not familiar with this can be found here)

I was thinking something like this (lowest to highest)

Chi Otaku
Sui Otaku
Ka Otaku
Fu Otaku
Ku Otaku

Shiki Moderator
Elemental Master Administrator

Alternately, we could use the english words (in order: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, Void), or drop "otaku" (I know there has at one point been a discusion of this word and that not all people like it) and use something like "Ranger", "Member", etc...

Jsut something to mull over.

edit:  DOAH!  I must have just missed the decision to change....  I see it's allready been selected.  That, or I'm just oblivious and it was selected long ago...  hehehe  Oh well...

I just now changed it, Thundergug and darak!  There were SO many great ideas, I've just had to launch one!

Akari, now that your schoolgirl scheme has seven ranks, I suspect that it may just pop up some day! ::)  Naniki, I like the Naruto theme, but can you dig up two more ranks for next time around?  Ribi-chan, I love your art concept!  Can you (or any other clever Boardie) think of a way to tweak it more into the realm of anime and manga, and/or the Japanese industry that creates them?  Oh, and the Mothra, Rodan, Godzilla progression!  Brilliant, KORfan!  I grew up on this stuff and still dig it, but I don't think I can be that cruel to the Moderators! ;)  And to EVERYONE who added their ideas and comments, thank you!  So much cleverness in one place is just scary!

I commend you all for rising so strongly to my ranking challenge!  You all earn extra karma points!  But this time around, the winner is...

Ky_CloudFFX's Samurai Ranking Theme!

Here's the progression:
  • Ronin - unemployed samurai
  • Samurai - regular ranking warrior
  • Bushi - higher ranking warrior like an officer
  • Karo - minister of general affairs (cabinet members)
  • Daimyo- a govenor (over 50 in japan, lived in castles)
  • Bugyo - Supreme warrior {Moderator}
  • Shogun - president of all warriors {Administrator}
Congratulations and thank you for your great suggestion, Ky_CloudFFX!  I've offically implemented it.

But I encourage all of you to keep those ideas coming!  We'll be back to play this game again!  I promise! ;D

~Jeff


P.S.   Umm... Shawn?  "Skillabrillax"?  word

NEW:

Mascot Artist
Bishi/(Do you guys have a word for hot anime girls?) Artist

Even those could use some refining, but I think I'm closer to something really good... ::);

MY forum title is now, somewhat appropriately, Bugyou.

Oh, wait, that's just on the forum I moderate. :(

Wow, it sure has been a long time since I've changed our Forum Rankings.  Hmmm...  It's time to remedy that! ;)

Guys, I apologize (and we'll turn the tables another day), but this previously submitted gal-oriented concept is just too funny to abandon:

Akari Hoshi's Japanese School Girl Theme!
(With assistance from Kurai_Kaze and KORfan)

Here's the rank progression:
  • School Girl
  • Magic School Girl
  • Music Idol School Girl
  • Giant Robot Pilot School Girl
  • Transdimensional School Girl
  • Class Representative {Moderator}
  • Student Council President {Administrator}

Thanks again and congratulations, Akari Hoshi (and Kurai_Kaze and KORfan)!

And I also thank everyone who has submitted their Forum ranking ideas!  There are still several super concepts here that I plan to implement in the future, but of course, "more is better"!  So I invite everyone to please keep posting their rank concepts!  We'll do this again soon, and your suggestion could be our next winner!  Remember that we need seven titles, (5 forum ranks, and 2 IDs for our Moderators and Administrators) in your theme.  (Naniki, your Naruto dream theme is just missing one title! ::))

Have fun, be creative, and don't forget that I'm easily amused! ;D

But I think the titles made everyone in the forum a whole lot hotter. xD
