View Full Version : Feedback: Custom Ranks


Sage Mode
05-30-2009, 03:02 PM
I've been getting tons of PM's and seen tons of questions on the forums about custom ranks. Everyone has the question of "When can I get one?"

The answer is you won't, unless you've contributed awesomely to the forums, or perhaps, won a special contest or something. Or, and this is looking far ahead, you are such a long-tenured member of the forums your awesomeness needs to be rewarded.

So please, no more requests.

In the next week or two we'll advance the people who have enough posts to Jonin. But also, keep in mind, there's a possibility that your rank will be reduced if we decide to make it so that certain forums don't contribute to your total posts (forum games and chats, etc.). We haven't decided yet.

So only people with >1500

or even >2000 posts will get special ranks?

I guess that that means that I'm never getting one.

Also, I had an idea that all of the kages of registered

villages could get a special rank. Just a thought...

05-30-2009, 03:58 PM
i think its actually a good idea, because that way people who just post randomness (like i do quite often but am working on not doing that) wont rank up twice a day :P

Mods can i please make a suggsetion please do not reduce our posts if you choose to make places like the bath house not count because like me and a bunch of others we have lost many posts aready people in the darkness village i went down from chunin exam particapant to aprentice genin and it took many many hours and days too get my posts back up and the same happened with many others and i don't think it is fair because it is very frusterating too lose all your posts because you have to work hard to get them in a way im probly being a little too obsesive about this but I just wanted to make a point thats all

To those saying Custom ranks should go away:

Consider the feelings of those who have earned them.

To my knowledge 3 people have gotten a custom rank:

Myself for many things, most of which I am not sure how much I can talk about. Basically I am a computer Technician and have solved or helped solve a lot of technical problems with the mods. When you combine my battle system and technical contributions I have easily spent 150 - 250 hours of my own personal time working on something for these forums.

I also did a fair amount of work designing and debating the ranking system now in place

Black Chidori for making 80% of the battle system and basically deciding to make it and just doing it. Easily a 100 hour project. He also ran the first HUGE month long trivia contest at the same time.

watermelon-chi - The mods said whoever won the above mentioned contest would get the "Konoha Historian" Custom title, she didn't get to choose hers, it was a prize.

It is easy to say "you shouldn't have custom ranks cause some people will feel left out." But at the same time, this simple thing (a custom title) is the reward we get for CONSIDERABLE contributions. And it's not like we are going to stop helping after we get the special ranks.

My custom rank is a reward, an acknowledgment of all the effort I put in "above and beyond" just posting on the forum. Suggesting they are stupid or that mine should be taken away is a bit hurtful.

Yajyuu Mikazuki

but really cool

Yeah, just because some jerk spends 18 hours of his own time helping the mods fix the forum, or 80 hours working on a battle system for the forum, giving him something to feel special is stupid.

Come on people, the drama over this is getting silly. Rewards are nice every once in a while.

Yay for Toma for keeping it real and saying it proper. I personaly think that if you think that the custom ranks are stupid and are not fair then you REALY dont understand wat ppl like BC and Toma have done for this forum. Personaly i think they desrve more than a special title, but that just me.

rewards and rewards, custom ranks and more custom ranks. child's play, why can't we all be just equal? no ranks no different special earnings nothing, just your post rank and your village rank thats it, why do people need the "RANK"? WE KNOW WHO YOU GUYS ARE!!! You helped out a lot, GOOD. You came up with the system, GREAT. You are an answer machine for problems in the forum, AWESOME. Do you really need a special rank showing your superiority to everyone else? In the other hand if there are people deserving a rank it is basically Toma and "Birdy" (aka black chidori), you guys have done a boat load for this site and do need to get rewarded some how and a special rank is good, tho i think its a little bit short for what you guys have done here. And to all the envious persons out there that want a special rank just because you have 2000 plus posts, STOP YOUR WINING!!!! you dont deserve one, maybe if you helped a little more instead of running around and posting "I eat this" or "why?" or my favorite one " :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :o " you might deserve one but to EVERYONES knowledge TOMA AND "BIRDY" are the only ones that really deserve one....... so far.

Im pretty sure u have to be nominated by a mod or at least a council member and saying that u should have one like this out in the open will probably lessen ur chances of getting one

I have no idea what extra work you might be doing for the mods so I can't say for sure.

Based purely on what you have posted? No way. Merits for role play are earned over a lengthy time. The forums haven't been open long enough and the war system isn't even in place yet.

I admit you may be doing extra work behind the scenes like I do which is why I will settle for "I don't know enough to say for sure."

This is why the mods have the authority.

what i mean, is that if you needed a complicated system for the org, and you made it, you would be deserving of a title, and for your org not being a village, it is still a group, similiar to the akatsuki, they are the antagonistic group if the series, so there should be some type of special place for you in the system, not just a group or rogues, you do call your self, an organization after all :)

I've been getting tons of PM's and seen tons of questions on the forums about custom ranks. Everyone has the question of "When can I get one?"

The answer is you won't, unless you've contributed awesomely to the forums, or perhaps, won a special contest or something. Or, and this is looking far ahead, you are such a long-tenured member of the forums your awesomeness needs to be rewarded.

So please, no more requests.

In the next week or two we'll advance the people who have enough posts to Jonin. But also, keep in mind, there's a possibility that your rank will be reduced if we decide to make it so that certain forums don't contribute to your total posts (forum games and chats, etc.). We haven't decided yet.

There is no sense in debating if you have TRUELY contributed to the forums, if you have then the mods will recognize you and reward you, period. No ifs, ands, or, buts.

I understand. Cause people might put their custom ranks as: Orochimaru. or something like: The best and strongest kage. Junk like that.

Getting off topic again. i think you should lock this thread already or delete it.

what i mean, is that if you needed a complicated system for the org, and you made it, you would be deserving of a title, and for your org not being a village, it is still a group, similiar to the akatsuki, they are the antagonistic group if the series, so there should be some type of special place for you in the system, not just a group or rogues, you do call your self, an organization after all :)

well, yeah i guess that'll be better ... but if i try to ask for organizations they're gonna say that they're gonna have to re-do the whole thing and stuff ...


yea, maybe it will be some sort of add on.........this isn't off topic at all...... (sarcasm)

Yeah, just because some jerk spends 18 hours of his own time helping the mods fix the forum, or 80 hours working on a battle system for the forum, giving him something to feel special is stupid.

Come on people, the drama over this is getting silly. Rewards are nice every once in a while.

I think you have a better point here actually Toma... xD

But anyways, it's only a line of text whenever you post something. On most forums, the mods don't even bother with it, since it'll take a lot of their time doing something that has no impact whatsoever on the forum. Because once some random person X gets a custom title, everyone and their mom will ask for one.

Custom ranks should only be used for moderators, or people who are "almost moderators" who run their own part of the forum (I assume Toma will be given moderation rights etc to the village wars forums in the future.) Or awarded by contests which require significant participation. The clue here is that only VERY dedicated people will get something unique, and for the rest of us, we'll just have to cope and try to win the next big contest that comes around. I'm pretty sure there will be many contests coming up. Be patient. None of the people who got their custom ranks got it overnight or over the course of a week. Also they all did something significant.

Great if you're spending your time helping out newbies or being active on the forums, but if you're doing it only for a title, you got your priorities wrong, sorry.

In the end, it's only a line of text people. No need to fight over that right?

What ever you decide to take away post for I think you should keep the village training ground as a topic that contributes to post count for the following reason:

Training Ground (similar to Naruto universe training)+Reputation (From other people watching, especially if they see your fighting skills during the wars)=Increase in rank (Because of reputation alone, or for someone wanting to vote you into a higher rank) Example: Kakashi was a candidate for the next Hokage because of his reputation.

(If there are other examples for someone becoming a higher rank for their reputation in Naruto please consider those as you think about this opinion)

You get higher ranks by posting more. This is the list for how many posts equal what ranks.

Freshmen Academy Student 0-30
Ninja Academy Student 31-60
Academy Graduate 61-99
Apprentice Genin 100-250
Genin 251-400
Genin Elite 401-499
Chunin Exam Participant 500-850
Chunin 851-1190
Veteran Chunin 1191-1499
Special Jonin 1500-2999
Jonin 3000-5999
Jonin Leader 6000+

Note that at Special Jounin you can request a custom rank, and all ranks above are done manually by mods.

forum village-wise you have to join a village and after winning a few battles you'll be at a high rank ...

This part is no longer true. Custom ranks are only given to people who have done something amazing (and put down as much time on working on stuff for these forums as the mods) or given to you when you win official contests etc.

And that's the way it should be.

The thing that gets me... is how much nonsense slips past here in posting.
I've run two popular forums in the past, and right now one, plus contribute enough to another to have earned a Mod title (much like how Toma got his special rank on this forum).
And If your are going to have a raking system based off of posts you can not allow what is going on. All posts in the off topic or any "forum games" section should not count towards our ranking. This is the only fair way I've ever been able to do it in my 3-4 years of experience of administrating online communities.

Heck... on my forums, I even enforce a minimum words per post. It's not perfect, as someone will just add more letter to their spammy post... but it won't just be one word...-_-.. or perhaps they will actually use their brains and post something decent. I know there are only 3 mods here and they have better things to be doing, but I feel they should really get a bit stricter on the rules. I see countless topics out of place... and one word or spam posts that would never live to see the day in my world.

I make long posts... I like to think and debate calmly... I stay in the shadows.
But because of my nature... I suffer in this "rank system". Not only that but people ignore me. Now if I turned one of my long posts into a billion short posts like the others, then maybe I would be the same place as everyone else. However, I should not have to sacrifice my efficiency for anyone or anything.
(the above paragraph is more of a commentary on society than a complaint for this forum....)

So please make your decisions wisely on the future of the ranking system in general.

Very nice and i agree with most of everything you have said, however i think that all post should count every where mostly because people who deserve a custom rank will get one and the 1500 post thing is just a prerequisite or that's how i view it. Also I totally agree that there should be a quota that must be filled for a person to post, and in my experience on forums its usually about at least 15 characters.

I wasn't talking about custom ranks, which is why I apologized for being slightly off topic.
I thought they said the 1500 post thing doesn't work anymore anyway. Regardless of what's what I don't care about custom ranks, just the ranking system in general which IS faulty if all posts are allowed to be counted.

I don't make my way over to the section where this stuff normally goes, sorry. I'm too busy working two other forums and a website to spend my time contributing to something that hates me anyway. XP

You're my new hero! I actually follow pretty much the same guidelines as you do when posting. If a post can be answered in less than a sentence, I generally don't post, unless it's helping out people. Even then, I tend to try to write more to get them used to the system and point them to where they can find more info. Sadly, most people on these forums don't know what capitalization or punctuation means.
