Title: Forum Rankings & Titles
Post by: nFernoEdge on February 05, 2005, 02:17:57 PM
Can we get the Forum rankings changed to something, I dont know, more eye pleasing?  My personal wish would be allow a personalized one when you reach this point, or allow it to be edited in the CP.  Even if a admin had to change it, it wouldn't be too hard because there are so few that it wouldn't be half the forum begging.

Or even better still make new ranks and have it change every 50-100 posts or so.

Post by: Akari Hoshi on February 06, 2005, 04:21:31 PM
Mmm...maybe you don't know the story behind the change.

The change was made because some one of the forums got upset when we used "God Otaku" for the highest ranking forum posters. The complaint was dumb, but kinda valid, so the change was made...with a twist. They made it something that NO ONE could find offense too. There's nothing there that's going to twist any one's underpants into a knot.

As for getting a custom tag, I heard at the Meet and Greet that that's a huge hassle. I may have misheard...but I dunno. And if it changes and stays at 500, there's going to be A LOT of people reaching that point soon. Webmistress Laurie and Tongo_Jeff have WAY too much to do in their outside lives to suffer our every whim.

I'm going to let the Admins take a crack at this and let them tell you their side of things...but that's what I know/heard.

Akari is correct about why our highest posting rank is somewhat unusual. ::)  However, I think a new ranking or two would indeed be fun!  Anyone care to make some suggestions?  You come up with the titles, and we'll ponder how to juggle the post counts.  Please keep your ideas non-offensive!  (I don't want to go through that mess again! ;D)

F.Y.I. our original and current ranking system is:~Jeff

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: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?
Title: Re: Highest Ranking non-offending otaku title
Post by: KORfan on February 24, 2005, 09:43:28 AM
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.

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.
Title: Re: Highest Ranking non-offending otaku title
Post by: Tongo_Jeff on March 13, 2005, 06:08:22 PM

Yay!  I agree that it's time for a new ranking system!  How about some kind of Mecha progression?  Something like:Who's more familiar with the various mecha/robots that could make this better?  We'd could use titles for the Moderators and Administrators too!

Or how about a kawaii sidekick system? ::)  Something like:And then maybe Moderators could be be "Genma-oderator" and Administrators get to be "Kuroneko-strator"!  Maybe? ;D

Now if I were compulsive, since I somehow managed to convince Tongo Jeff on the last set of names, I would have to give the following:

Japanese Book Terms!

    1)  Kansubon: or "Rolled book"
    2)  Sempuyo: or "flutter book"
    3)  Detchoso: or "butterfly book"
    4)  Makurabon: or "pillow book"
    5)  Masugatabon: or "square book"

There!  I have provided my evil ideas for new names. ;D

Something near and dear to my heart (FOOD!) gave me a great idea for a ranking system.  From highest to lowest here are the 5 different rankings, based on the different levels of complexity and expertise involved in making the following Japanese ryori (cuisine).

1. Okonomiyaki Master
2. Sushi Chef
3. Yakisoba Cook
4. Ramen Maker
5. Can boil water for tea

So with the book and food concepts, what could we call the moderators and administrators?  I definitely need help for the book theme, but how about "Mochi Moderators" and "Abura-age Administrators" for food! ;D  (Sorry, Lucky!  I HAD to!  But with your knowledge of Japanese food, I'm hoping you can make me EAT those suggestions! ::))

What about different yen bill amounts?

The ¥10,000 (man-en) note features the Meiji Period educator Fukuzawa Yukich

The ¥5,000 (go-sen) yen note features Meiji/Taisho Period educator Nitobe Inazo

The ¥2,000 (nisen-en) note features Shureimon, the gate of Shuri Castle in Okinawa Prefecture. The note was issued to commemorate the G8 summit in Okinawa in July 2000.

The ¥1,000 (sen-en) note features the writer Natsume Soseki (1867~1916)

edit:
New ¥1,000, ¥5,000 and ¥10,000 notes were issued in November, 2004. The old notes will remain in circulation for about two years. The ¥1,000 note features world-renowned bacteriologist Noguchi Hideyo; the ¥5,000 note has Higuchi Ichiyo, one of Japan's earliest feminist novelists; the ¥10,000 notes keeps Fukuzawa Yukichi. All three notes incorporate the latest in anti-forgery design.

The 500, 100 and 50 yen coins are made of nickel, the 10 yen of bronze, the 5 yen of copper and the 1 yen of aluminium. With holes through the center, the 50 yen and more often the 5 yen coin are considered lucky and often used in charms.

I call Shureimon 2000 yen bill!

Who's got some schemes?  Let's hear them!  Please remember that we need seven titles (5 forum ranks, and 2 IDs for our Moderators and Administrators).

Feedback! Woot!

Anyway, so far I like: (from the entire thread)

Tango Jeff's pre-meiji era social/military titles
Akari's School girls
the honorifics, -san, -chan, etc.
DN's references to time spent of forum
and the figures ranks.

Overall I'd like it something pretty generic to anime/Japan, things like mecha are a little to exclusive for me.

And...Oh wait! I think I've got one! Art references:

Doodles on paper
Draws a lot
Obsessed with drawing anime
Art student
Professional artist

Excellent Animator
Superb Animator

Not sure I exactly like the ones I chose, I'm open for suggestions on refining those titles. ^^;

Not to be outdone by himself but Lucky has a great idea for a new series of forum rankings.  They are based on the many games I see played in anime.  They are in order by their level of complexity with the simplest (lowest ranking) listed first.

Jan Ken Pon
Uno
Othello
Mah Jong
Go

and the Mod/Admin ranking:

Administrator of Tournaments

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
Shogun- president of all warriors.

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 (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=Feedback;action=display;num=1107692277;start=30#42) (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.
Title: Re: Forum Rankings & Titles
Post by: Ribi-chan on July 29, 2006, 05:19:58 PM
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 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_elements_(Japanese_philosophy)))

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.

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: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

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

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:
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 (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=Feedback;action=display;num=1107692277;start=30;#33) is just missing one title! ::))

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

Heh heh kewl.  Y'know, on other forums I post I tend to maintain an even more gender neutral identity.  Or sometimes I'll say something really masculine one day and then the next day I'll say something only a woman would say, I just like having that freedom by taking advantage of internet anonymity.  But since on this forum lots of members know I'm male, I thought I represented my gender fairly well.  Hmm... I must seem really girly on those other forums  :-/ (I fail at life)

Oh well, I happen to really like this Winry avatar and I like posting in yellow so maybe that has something to do with it.

Wow, that is so weird Akari-kun.  Before you posted that I thought of a Lupin-inspired forum ranking theme myself.  Although mine was more along the lines of different investigation agencies like FBI, Interpol, etc.

But thinking of you I got a great idea for a new forum ranking system.  It's theme is a budding relationship between two students at an all boy's school.
First the freshman year and there are two students who start as...
Classmates.
They meet each other at Kendo club and become
Yuujin (buddies, pals)
Then when one of them wants help with his English assignments they meet at the library and become
Tomodachi (good friends)
One night after studying one decided to walk home with the other to borrow some manga and this turns into a
Shounen-ai story.
But just before graduation day their relationship becomes more serious, typical of your classic
Yaoi.

And the two admin rankings are
Sensei
Ai-Mangaka

Heh, this is cool and all, but my inner manly man desires something with more testosterone.  And Lucky, personally, I don't think your current idea really helps the image of most of us.  I'm not saying it's horrible or anything, it's just, leaves me feeling all "ugh".

So make me a giant giant mech female.  Even though I could live without the robot.

I was, a bit. In all honesty, I just think that Lucky's suggestion was just a little TOO way out there, and I generally like it out there. In the event that his idea does get accepted, I will more than likely get over it and accept it. I've accepted the fact that I am now a pop idol diva, and I hope my fans will look forward to the next time I do karaoke at the con. ;D My reaction was mostly based on a mental image of a mass male make out session at the con (don't get any ideas now). If I sounded up tight about my sexuality, it was really meant as a comical reaction. I always joke about it, but I am a very understanding and accepting person all around, because people like Rob Halford are awesome in so many ways. :) I hope I've cleared things up for you so don't let my opinions get in the way.

Title: Re: Forum Rankings & Titles
Post by: Tongo_Jeff on February 22, 2007, 01:15:53 PM
Howdy, Sarah_Chan16!  Like on many Internet forums, the AnimeIowa Forum increases your "rank" as you make more posts.  This rank is listed right below your username, and you can see that right now you're a "Magic School Girl". :)  If you look at the ranks of the people who posted before you, they have different ranks, which essentially tell you how active they are on our Forums.

One of the silly things we like to do here on the AnimeIowa Forums is to change our ranking systems occasionally to keep things interesting.  If you click HERE (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=F-Rules;action=display;num=1165989216;start=60;#70), you can see that our ranking system right now is "Akari Hoshi's Japanese School Girl Theme", and that new people on the Forum are "School Girls" and people with LOTS of posts are "Transdimensional School Girls".  Before that, we've used historical Samurai (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=F-Rules;action=display;num=1165989216;start=60;#66) ranks, Japanese foods (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=F-Rules;action=display;num=1165989216;start=45;#48), and some other wierd stuff. ::)

I hope I've answered your question!  If not, please let us know and we'll try again.  Thanks!  Incidentally, this reminds me...
Title: Re: Forum Rankings & Titles
Post by: Tongo_Jeff on February 22, 2007, 02:00:55 PM
I'm feeling the urge for a new Forum ranking system! ;D  As cute as we all look in our short little Japanese school girl skirts (especially Thundergug! ::)), it's time for us to select a "manly" ranking theme!  Therefore, I'd like to formally issue the...

AI Forum Manly-Man Ranking Theme Challenge!

To follow up Akari Hoshi's notorious "Japanese School Girl Theme", I need your help in scheming up appropriately macho ranks to celebrate all that's masculine in the world of anime and manga.  Got a manliness progression from the prettiest bishi to the most violent enforcer?  That could work!  Want to prioritize anime types from angsty teens up to super-suave secret agents?  Anything goes, as long as it's an obvious measure of studliness and it keeps within our PG-13 guidelines.

Remember that we need SEVEN titles (5 forum ranks plus 2 IDs for our Moderators and Administrators) in your theme.  So think burly thoughts and post your ranking ideas here!  Don't be afraid to build on other members' ideas, since our final ranking system may turn out to be hybrid of the best suggestions.  And ladies, don't be shy!  You know what hawt hunky characters get your mojo working!  (Guys, maybe we can learn something here! ;))  So everyone get thinking.  Only time will tell what manly theme will win, but one thing that I DO know is that, yeah, it'll be cool...  8)

(My apologies in advance to our Forum members of the female persuasion, but turn-about IS fair play!)

In other news, I have a suggestion.

How about bad guy ranking?

Like...
1. Krang (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
2. Puu-Chu (Excel Saga)
3. Queen Beryl (Sailor Moon)
4. Itachi (Naruto)
5. Sephiroth (FF7)

I don't know. There are prolly better ones, but those were the ones that came to mind.

It's not very generic, but whatever.

What about manly-men from anime.  The ranking system could be how "manly" and important that character is in the anime and whether we have the same level of manly importance.

At the bottom would be Ranma, whom is only half man.

what is the name of the main character in Bobobo?  The guy that defeat enemies using his nose hair.  There is nothing more manly than nose and chest hair.

There is also Alucard, who is a very manly guy.  For a Vampire.

I am sure there is many more manly-men in anime.  We just have to find them.


Okay, but where does Domaramu from Dragon Half fit in?

Domaramu?...Which one was he?


he was the brainless palidin/dragon slayer, with very tan skin and purple armor. http://img48.imageshack.us/img48/4514/damaramu3iz.jpg
he survived being stabbed through the head with his own sword because he's brain was soo small....later he came back as Mecha Damaramu

i would put him in the lower half or somwhere middle

Another unusual association with me and Evangelion!  Wasn't it last year that someone suggested that I crossplay as Ritsuko Akagi, the female scientist in Evangelion? ;)  But anyway, I DO think a Neon Genesis Evangelion theme would be a GREAT idea for us to use someday, so please feel free to post your proposals.  HOWEVER, first we're going to wrap up and implement our "Manly-Man Ranking Theme Challenge"!

We've had a lot of good ideas posted the last few weeks, but the particularly macho concepts by KORfan, HuskerMoon, GundamCowboy, and Kurai_Kaze got me thinking about what makes a good man "manly".  And then nrohwer's excellent observation about the relative manly characteristics of different anime males prompted me to think... "What if we combine desirable manly characteristics and the anime men who have them!"  Our rankings could be of this format:
You may have noticed that a few of the titles involve a bit of sarcasm. ::)  And, yeah, I know I thought of way too many, but it was a surprisingly fun list to work on! :)  Comments?  Got better anime characters for the characteristics?  Other manly traits and men I missed?  I'd love to hear them!

The above is just another idea, I still haven't locked in a winning Manly-Man theme.  So if you haven't expressed your opinion yet, or have been waiting to propose your magnificently macho measurement methodology for metering manliness, NOW is the time!   Thanks!

Okay!  As promised (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg40565#msg40565), it's time to follow up Akari Hoshi's "Japanese School Girl" Forum ranking theme (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg37715#msg37715).  Yep, I'm implementing the...

Anime Manly-Man Forum Ranking Theme!
Here's the rank progression:
I thank everyone for their ideas and suggestions for this theme!  There were so many good thoughts, it was tough to distill out the best ones!

Thanks also to everyone who submitted other Forum ranking ideas along the way!  There are still several super concepts here that I plan to implement in the future, and we probably won't be able to use this "Manly-Man theme for TOO long! ::)   So please keep posting your rank concepts!  We'll definitely 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.  (And if anyone talks to Naniki, please tell him that his Naruto dream theme (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg12900#msg12900) is just missing one title! ;))

Until the theme muse strikes again... Go manly-men! ;D

KORfan, I absolutely LOVE the Ghibli film animal idea!  We'll definitely come back and use that!  But first, we've got some old business to wrap up! ;)  The concept was suggested over two and a half years ago (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg12900#msg12900), but has been on hold waiting for an additional rank level.  But now, thanks to a helpful assist by n00b and MeraniEpop, the AnimeIowa Forums is thrilled to FINALLY launch...

Naniki's Naruto Ninja Ranking Theme!
Here's the rank progression:We've had some late-breaking discussion about spellings and using "Kage" vs. "Hokage" but we think we've got things more-or-less correct.  (Source 1 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naruto_ninja_ranks) and Source 2 (http://www.narutohq.com/shinobi-ranks.php))

Yay!  After two and a half years, Naniki, we hope your dream is now fulfilled! ;D  Thanks, Naniki, and everyone who has helped along the way on this one!  Congratulations to all our AnimeIowa Forum members on their new ninja rank!

Post by: Tongo_Jeff on May 24, 2009, 11:46:40 AM
Okay!  We're definitely overdue for a new Forum Ranking Theme!  So without further delay, I've activated...

KORfan's Studio Ghibli Animal Ranking Theme!

Here's the rank progression:

     

Studio Ghibli (http://www.ghibli.jp/) is best known for the work of anime legend Hayao Miyazaki, who often includes all kinds of animals and creatures in this movies, both as primary and secondary characters.  I'm a huge fan, and I know that many of you are too!  I've loved this theme idea ever since KORfan suggested it back in 2007 (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg49874#msg49874).  However, I just couldn't bring myself to use the Tanuki (from Pom Poko) (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_6LDIlcnpNrg/RhJ4DPX8euI/AAAAAAAAAME/eAvYGwjuUiA/s1600-h/pom4.jpg) ranking! ::)  I apologize to KORfan, but I have tweaked his suggested ranks a bit to ease my discomfort.

I thank EVERYONE who has submitted their Forum ranking ideas, and I encourage you to think of MORE!  We'll definitely do this again soon (I hope to cycle at least one more theme before AnimeIowa 2009), and your suggestion could be our next winner!  Please remember that each theme needs SEVEN titles (5 forum ranks, and 2 IDs for our Moderators and Administrators).  Incidentally, I'd really LIKE to use several of the good theme ideas that have been posted here, but they don't have enough titles! :'(  So please feel free to add titles for these "short" themes, so that maybe we can use them!

I hope you like the new ranking system!  (Thanks, KORfan!)  Hmmmm... now which theme shall we use next time?  I wonder...

Nice work, SpiffyNerd!  You've got a classic anime theme, and all seven titles worked out!  This looks like a strong contender for future use! :)

MrHolliman and INTIMIDATOR0108, you've suggested good ideas.  Why not flesh them out with seven appropriate titles so that your themes can be considered? ;)

Nice, Kuro-sama!  You've provided a good progression for all eight  of the Forum positions!  (Although I never fancied myself as the Haruhi Suzumiya type ;D)

animefaerie2 and hylian-dragoness, I'd love to get a ranking system proposal from each of you too!  I know you're both clever and have got the anime-smarts. ;)

What's going on here, you ask?  For those of you who missed the first Forum "Meet & Greet" session at AnimeIowa 2010, it was agreed that we're overdue for a new Forum ranking system.  (KORfan's "Studio Ghibli Animal Ranking Theme" (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg131657#msg131657) has been one of our best themes ever, but we've used it for over a year now!)  So I'm taking nonimations for a replacement theme!  Do YOU have a favorite anime, characters, Japan-related concept, or other favorite idea that you'd like to share with all AnimeIowa Forum members?  Then I invite you to turn it into a Forum ranking theme!  Please remember that each theme needs EIGHT titles (5 forum ranks, and 3 IDs for our Moderators, Forum Ninjas, and Administrators).

Alternatively, if you're having trouble coming up with a new theme of your own, I'd really LIKE to use several of the good theme ideas that have been posted here over the last few years, but they don't have enough titles!   So please feel free to add missing titles for these "short" themes, and provide their full progrssion so that maybe we can use them!

Get creative, Boardies, and post your fabulous ranking system ideas!  We'll give everyone a chance to work on this, and then we'll begin our tranformation sequence! :angel:

if i had more time on a computer i'd look up different titles,

but wouldn't it be fun if we used like...Japanese food for the titles. Like start off as like...a rice bowl, then move up to an onigiri, and so on and so forth, and like the top could be...i dunno, some sort of really elegant and high japanese dish.

lol I dunno, that's just something i thought up. Maybe someone could elaborate more on it and actually create 8 different foods that could work if they liked this idea =p

I present the Rice-based Ranking Theme!

1. Instant Rice
2. White Rice
3. Onigiri
4. Curry Rice
5. Omurice

Mod: Mochi
Admin: Obento
Ninja: Sushi

Each element, as you go up the scale, increases in decadence and complexity.
The Moderators are Mochi, which is a type of rice dessert/snack that is best in limited amounts (just like how our moderators are limited in numbers)
The Admin, being the overseers of the boards, are Obentos, or full lunches.
And the Ninjas are sushi, since that is what ninjas turn their foes into!


==================

I'm bored, so I created another scheme: The Shut-In Theme!

1. Quiet
2. Shy
3. Recluse
4. NEET
5. Hikikomori

Mod: Psychiatrist
Admin: Doctor
Ninja: Social Worker

For normal members, the scale is for people who become increasingly shut-in, culminating in people who are full-blown hikkis.
The staff are various types of workers who would presumably help in treating shut-ins (thus dealing with any problems they might have/cause).

No worries, Maxite!  Our Forum ranking systems happily stomp on traditional gender roles! ;)  As evidence, may I remind everyone of our fabulous Japanese School Girl Theme (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg37715#msg37715) and our studly Anime Manly-Man Theme (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg45229#msg45229).  Nice, eh?! ;D  I think we all actually had fun visualizing our favorite Boardie friends in these various roles.  So I hope we can all be a bit flexible here on issues of stereotypes of all kinds.

Stop treading on my dream of being a Magical Schoolgirl!

Post by: Tongo_Jeff on August 14, 2010, 10:05:50 AM
Done for the lulz:

Obviously, Ash is a terrible Pokemon trainer, and Gary is the best of his generation.

1. Ash Ketchum
2. Rocket Grunt
3. Brock
4. Misty
5. Gary MO-FO'IN Oak

Mod: Elite Four
Admin: Professor Oak
Ninja: S-S-S-SOOOOUUULLLLL BADGE!

Nice theme idea, SamanthaA! ;)  On a similar train-of-thought, I received another Pokemon theme from ~Xion~, who is very busy and requested that I post for him:
Here is my idea for the rankings and titles and what not.

1. Rookie Trainer
2. Dedicated Battler
3. Ace Trainer
4. Gym Leader
5. Pokemon Master

Forum Ninja: Frontier Brain
Moderators: Elite 4 Member
Administrator: League Champion

I think that ALL the themes that everyone is posting look great :), and my plan is to begin cycling though as many of them as possible!  Please keep 'em coming, Boardies!

Pretty random idea to base the ranking system off of one of my favorite manga, Fist of the North Star.

1. Mr. Heart
2. Jagi
3. Shin
4. Rei
5. Toki

Moderator: Raoh
Admin: Kenshiro
Ninja: Ursa Major

Explanations for everyone else:
Mr. Heart is one of Shin's four generals based on a deck of playing cards (heart, diamond, spade, club).  Put up a decent fight against Ken, but goes down after some quick thinking.
Jagi is the weakest of the four adopted brothers in the series (has skill, not enough compared to the others, resorts to cheating, tricks and a shotgun).
Shin is the first antagonist in the series, stole Ken's girl.
Rei is a good guy but is a tad more ruthless than Ken, not too much though.  Bishonen of the series?
Toki is more of a pacifist, fans joke around that he's Jesus.
Raoh is the main antagonist.  Japan loves him 'cause he's tougher than anyone.
Ken is the hero of the story, 'nuff said.
The North Star is part of the Ursa Major constellation.  Not sure if this works, better ideas are welcome.

Alright then!  Since it was Kuro-sama who turned up the heat for new Forum ranks, I've just activated...

Kuro-sama's 'Flawless' Ranking Theme!
(With an assist by Denna)

Here's the rank progression (from lowest to highest number of posts):

And your helpful Forum Team members:

Thanks to EVERYONE who submitted Forum ranking ideas, and I encourage you to think of MORE!  We'll let Kuro-sama's theme run for a while, and then when you least expect it... BAM!  I'll switch to another one of the great systems that was posted. ;D

If you'd like to submit a theme but are having trouble getting started, please take a look back through this thread over the last few years.  There are several suggested ideas that were excellent, but didn't have quite enough positions to get used.  If you find one you like and just add the missing ranks, we can use the theme!  Please remember that each theme needs EIGHT titles (5 forum ranks, and 3 IDs for our Moderators, Forum Ninjas, and Administrators).

I hope you like the new ranking system!  (Thanks, Kuro-sama and Denna!)  Keeping posting your ranking ideas, everyone, and watch out for upcoming changes! >:D

Darling, dear. You are not going to start this debate. It is up in the air. If the Japanese put out an american-looking animation, would it still be anime? (In my opinion,) At this point, anime has become more of an art style originating in Japan because they do put out American manga and it is very much not catagorized with American comic books like Marvel. I say let people call Avatar what they want. I call it American Anime. Because it is in the anime style. and it's from America. I feel that's a pretty accurate description because Avatar is by no means on par with Spongebob (a comparable cartoon as it is put out by the same network.)

Now for some relavance.

Hmmm...  I'm getting the holiday spirit and we haven't changed our Forum ranking theme in a long time.  Can you guess what that means?  Yep!  It's time for a holiday ranking theme! ;D  Therefore, I have shamelessly activated...

Here's the rank progression (from lowest to highest number of posts):

And your helpful Forum Team members:

I hope everyone is amused by their new Forum ranking!  After the holidays I'll switch us over to one of the many excellent themes that have been submitted since AnimeIowa 2010.  And please feel free to submit MORE themes for potential future use!  Don't forget that to be considered, a theme needs EIGHT titles (5 forum ranks, and 3 IDs for our Moderators, Forum Ninjas, and Administrators).

Happy Holidays, everyone!

We'll use Maxite's rice-based theme for a while, and then when you least expect it, or when we get a suggestion that's just too temping to resist >:D, we'll switch to new ranking theme!  It could be yours!  So please suggest a Forum theme based on your favorite anime, manga, Japan-related topic, etc.  Each theme needs EIGHT titles (5 forum ranks, and 3 IDs for our Moderators, Forum Ninjas, and Administrators).  Or, if you're having trouble coming up with your own theme, help us complete (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg132361#msg132361) some of the excellent (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg238790#msg238790) suggestions that have already been made that are missing a couple ranks. :angel:

I feel sad that it took me several hours of me browsing on the forums to realize that not only did the forum titles change, but also that they were using my suggestion. Once I had the "Heeey, wait just a minute..." I came to this thread to verify my suspicions.

And TongoJeff, it's okay that you changed some things. I am sad that you didn't make the moderators Dango (Dango, Dango, Daikazoku ~~). Oh well, I guess it'll be a small dango family?

Finally, to finish off one of the "suggested" themes that could use improvement (yea, I'm so shameless)

1. Luna (that darned cat)
2. Sailor Mercury
3. Sailor Venus
4. Sailor Mars
5. Sailor Jupiter
6. Sailor Mini-Moon
7. Tuxedo Mask

NOTE FROM THE LEAD MODERATOR:

I've removed Bad_Apple's personal post count speculation.  It takes away the fun "level-up" surprise if people know this in advance! ;D  Also, these level goals are adjusted a few times each year, to provide reasonable balance across the Forum.  (No worries, Bad_Apple!  I appreciate your being helpful! :))

AnimeIowa 2011 is over, and it's time to start thinking about next year's convention.  So let's restart with a new Forum Ranking System! ;D  We've received some really good suggestions recently, several of which have been from Bad_Apple!!  But he suggested (http://www.animeiowa.com/cgi-bin/smf/index.php?topic=2068.msg242032#msg242032) one in particular that I think will be fun...

Bad_Apple!!'s Bleach (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page) Ranking Theme!

Here's the rank progression (from lowest to highest number of posts):

And your helpful Forum Team members:

Great idea, Bad_Apple!!  I hope you don't mind that I couldn't resist making a couple of tweaks to your rankings.  For the first time ever, I've applied a rank to our initial "Forum Newbie" group.  They have become our Lost Souls. :angel:  And as a personal fan of Don Kanonji, I just HAD to sneak in his fabulous Karakura Superheros (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Karakura_Superheroes)!  (It was a close call against his Karakura-Raizer Team (http://youtu.be/NVnBfUKsaCE)!)

After we spend some time in the Soul Society, we'll shift again to a new ranking system.  So please post MORE anime, manga, or Japan-related themes for potential future use!  Don't forget that to be considered, a theme needs EIGHT titles (5 forum ranks, and 3 IDs for our Moderators, Forum Ninjas, and Administrators).

Thanks again, Bad_Apple!! for your fabulous Forum Ranking Theme suggestion!

How about a nice youkai theme?

1. Nekomata (a shapeshifting cat spirit with two tails, related to the Bakeneko)
2. Tanuki (Shapeshifting Racoon-dog)
3. Kappa (a famous monster with a water-filled head and a love of cucumbers)
4. Oni (classic Japanese youkai; an ogre with large horns and in some cases, very colorful skin, with a multitude of powers depending on orgin)
5. Kyuubi no Kitsune (a nine-tailed fox with various abilities such as shapeshifting, fire and electricity, illusions, and many other abilities!)

Mod: Ameterasu (The God of the Sun)
Ninja: Yami (The God of Darkness)
Admin: Kami (God. "The" God. Generally when people say Kami, they mean a God that's above all others.)

... Of course, given there's literally HUNDREDS of youkai in existance, a ton of these are interchangeable, and new sets can be formed!  XD

the silver surfer wasn't really a "bad guy" though =/ he was more of like an "unwilling pawn" of galactus who is good but becomes even MORE good, his rule of "no sentient planets" shows this...

kinda like ghost rider and mephisto, except ghost rider is an anti-hero, as opose to a hero, he does good things...just in a revengeful/bad way XD
and oda was awesome! =D, he just happened to be the guy with the biggest army at the time so everybody wanted to beat him up >=|, he was actually the mentor of tokagawa, and oda set the ground work for the unification of japan, later to be finished by hidioshi and tokagawa

^ Even if he was just the servant and bore no alliance, he still worked under someone who was on the side of evil, which is fitting for a mod, since mods do not share identical feelings and ideals as admins, but they still serve under them.

As for Oda, you're partially wrong. It's not that Oda had the largest army. In fact, Oda had actually started with the smallest army during his first major conquest against Yoshimoto Imagawa, with being outnumbered at least 3 men to his 1. It was also around this time that Ieyasu Tokugawa joined Nobunaga's side. Ieyasu had originally been on the same side as Imagawa, but left once his "debt was paid." No, everyone was NOT ganging up on Oda. Oda was attacking them, and with his ruthless strategy, rarely suffered a loss. His only major loss was the battle of Tedorigawa against the Uesugi. Oda did not set the groundwork for unification. I say this because while it's true he was close to uniting the land, his ruthless methods had easily created people who disapproved of him. After his murder at Honnouji, Kyouto by his own retainer Mitsuhide Akechi, it was Hideyoshi Toyotomi who stepped up and began to set the unification of Japan under a rule that wasn't consisting of pure despotism. Because of this, after the conquest of Odawara, Hideyoshi was able to unite the land in peace. Which was not to last when he died of disease. It was then between his retainer Mitsunari Ishida and Ieyasu Tokugawa. Ieyasu had successfully defeated Ishida at the Battle of Sekigahara, before later crushing the remainder of the Toyotomi clan at the Battle of Ousaka Castle. Tokugawa declared himself shougun, united the land, banned Christianity in Japan, and finally, ushered in a new era of peace and prosperity that we all know as the Edo period of Japan.

... I know a lot about the Sengoku era of Japan. Soooo... Yeah. Hope you didn't mind me sharing my knowledge :) I know what I was saying. Nobunaga is only PORTRAYED as a villian. Not an actual villian.

Aaaaaaand while I was playing Civilization Revolution, I got bored between turns and made a another ranking theme.
