We've got alot of different features for the forum that we're playing around with, but a user ranking system seems like something that's probably going to happen in some fashion, though I couldn't say when or how. You'd be able to 'level-up' on the forum based on how much you contribute to it.

For example-
You might start off as a Ninja in Training when you join the forum, then advance to Genin and on up to Jounin the more you make quality posts.

Rather than keep it to ourselves and decide which ranks to include, I figured I'd let you guys help help us decide, since you're the ones that're going to be getting the most out of them.

So, what ranks would you like to see? And in what order? Genin, Jounin, Kage? Post here and let us know!

--
UPDATE - Current Status

Here's the ranks we're looking at, with the number of posts for each rank approximate-

1. Ninja Academy student (0-100)
2. Genin (100-500)
3. Chunin (500-1500)
4. Special Jonin (1500-3000)
5. Jonin (3000+)

6. I'm open to special ranks being awarded to quality users that go above the highest merit rank.

I'm also open to the the Special Jonin and beyond ranks only being given on petition. For example-

If you hit 1500+ posts, you'd make an argument in a thread for why you think you deserve a higher rank. Members of the board, and us moderator's, would read through your posts a bit, and decide if you've got enough 'quality' posts to warrant the next rank. This way, people with 1000+ single word "lol" posts wouldn't have any incentive to spam the ranks.

Each rank would have a small image associated with it at some point, but we haven't decide on what. I think it'd be a good idea if we had an 'idea contest' for what you guys would want the images denoting a rank to be; to get around our 'no fanart' policy, you'd just be giving us ideas, and letting us do the grunt work of making the images. It'd be up to you guys, but think things like "1 Kunai," "2 Kunai," etc.

So, like I said, we still need you guys to come up with names for the subranks between the main ranks like Ninja Academy Student and Genin.

Any more ideas on that? Things like "Newbie Ninja Academy Student" / "Ninja Academy Student" / "Promising Ninja Academy Student," for each rank.

I actually like what I just made up for the Academy rank :D.

Once we've got the subranks named, I'll activate the ranking system, so suggest away if you want it to start soon ;).

Ninja in Training
Genin
Chunin
Jonin
Special Jonin
Anbu
Sannin
Kage

Upon joining: Academy student. (This is where the anime and manga started.)
Automatic after some posts (50-100): Genin (Showing you are in some way active)
Automatic after a larger number of posts (150-500): Chunin (To reflect this person knows his way around the forums, much like how the main characters in shipuuden know the basics of being ninjas.)

These are the two "automatic ranks."

Mods will then be able to grant additional ranks based on quality of posts and contribution to the boards.

[EDIT: Adding Special Jounin per later conversation.]

Special Jounin: A special rank for people VERY active in one specific forum. This person is not enough of an all around contributor to earn Jounin but offers a considerable amount of help in a certain forum. A suggestion is that 30% of the persons posts be in that forum though this number is by no means set in stone. It could also be offered as a prize for extreme participation in a test the mods are running. For example "we need a group of testers for XYZ project. After the project ends the mods could say "due to his/her exceptional help with XYZ project he has been promoted to "Special Jounin."

Jounin: Chunins or Special Jounin who contributes to the board regularly may be promoted to Jounin. The Jounin rank may not be removed once attained. It implies active participation across a majority of the boards.(This reflects the "main veterans of the board" much like Kakashi, Guy, and such. Not just time but quality is considered)

ANBU: The ANBU Rank is a high rank given to few. Only the most active, Jounins may be promoted to ANBU by the mods. ANBU should be few and the most active. After a period of inactivity, or if they become old grouchy men, ANBU members may be returned to jounin. Much like how Kakashi stoped being super active in missions and has returned to being a Jounin to train his team.

Kage ranks are the ultimate authority so I would suggest they be reservered for mods. Perhaps the different mods could be different "Kage's". It would add flare and personality to the mod team.

As for San-nin, there were three of them, and none of us are.

As for ROOT, they are very specialized and not thoroughly explained at this time and so should not be implemented as it could cause problems later if the series goes into more depth.

Thank you kindly. I have some experience admining aPHPBB3 board and have thought a lot on different methods of ranking.

My problem with the sannin and kage roles is that there could only be 3 sannin at a time and that could cause competition and hurt feelings amongst the MOST ACTIVE people on the forums. I would never want to lose someone that active due to a stupid rank.

Same with the kage's and it could confuse the new people.

Sorry for the double post but what exactly IS a "special jounin" and is it higher or lower than a normal jounin?

04-08-2009, 09:31 AM
I think all these are really good ideas! If we did get a user ranking system thing do you know when it might be, like, up and working?

and i think a special Jounin is higher than a regular one. Anko is a special Jounin. At least thats what it says on NarutoPedia.

While I cannot speak for the mods, the technical backend of getting ranks going takes less than 5 minutes. The delays will happen as the mod team talks the process through.

As for special jounin, its not REALLY a rank, and determinately not a rank up... I mean... I couldn't see anko telling kakashi what to do because she is a "higher rank". Also I am not sure what criteria the mods would use to change someone fro ounin to special jounin.

Thank you for pointing me to Narutopedia though.

EDIT: From Tokubetsu Jonin (????, Tokubetsu J?nin; Literally meaning "Special High Ninja"; sometimes known as Tokuj? for short) are ninja who, rather than all-around Jonin training, have Jonin-level ability in a single area or skill, much like warrant officers of real-world militaries. They are elite specialists in their areas and are often assigned as subordinates to regular Jonin when their services are needed.

This would mean "Special jounin are lower than jounin and are like a half step." I don't see how this would do much but confuse, but it WOULD need to be a lower rank than jounin.

Naruto
04-08-2009, 09:54 AM
A special jounin is a chunin that lots of experience in a particular thing like torturing. Ibiki Morino specializes in torturing but doesn't have that much experience in other things. Jounin have full experience in everything. Special Jounin is lower than Jounin.

Toma RNK
04-08-2009, 09:57 AM
Any thoughts on how special Jounin could be put into a forum raking system?

Maybe a ridiculously high post count so that you can earn it without a mod promotion? Like 1250 posts or something? That way most people are promoted straight to jounin but those that don't excel enough in all areas and cannot get the mods attention could get to special jounin with a lot of posting?

Naruto
04-08-2009, 09:58 AM
It would be like this:
Ninja in training
Genin
Chunin
Special Jounin
Jounin
Anbu
Sannin and Kage.

Naruto
04-08-2009, 09:59 AM
Special Jounin would come between the 1/2 way point from Chunin to Jounin.

Yeah. maybe you could become a special jounin if you have almost all your posts in a specific area, like the ramen shop or bath house...
but that would be hard because how would they keep track of where you put all your posts.. Maybe mine wasn't such a good idea..

Toma RNK
04-08-2009, 10:02 AM
Right... I was asking for specifically HOW we could do this. I listed some methods in my post on the first age, I am unsure how to work "special jounin" into the model.

Naruto
04-08-2009, 10:05 AM
Hey tomarnk,

Try making the post count lower like make 1250 to maybe 950. Some of us might never reach it. Also the Special Jounin should have a specific interest in a place.

I could, my reasoning was the most people will just be put to jounin by mods.

Perhaps if a person has like 30% of his posts in a certain section and is helpful but is not overall active enough to become a jounin? That would mean it would be an awarded rank...

Thoughts?

Edit: To all those proposing sannin and kage, how many should we have? or should it just be "as many as earn it?" It seems odd to me having 7 sannins or 12 kage's.

I agree but.... I don't think we should be able to become Sannin. after all doesn't Sannin mean something like 3 in japanaese? Sannin is just Tsunade jiriya and orochimaru.

san means 3. sannin means roughly 3 ninjas.

Konoha's sannin were the "three ninjas of the hidden leaf village."

i think that makes sense! i like the 30% idea cause special jounin are skilled in one area.

I updated my original post to reflect the feedback thus far.

I also added to special jounin: It could also be offered as a prize for extreme participation in a test the mods are running. For example "we need a group of testers for XYZ project. After the project ends the mods could say "due to his/her exceptional help with XYZ project so and so has been promoted to "Special Jounin."

3 Sannins and 5 Kages. No more unless there are more than 5 mods or the mods think that one of us deserves a position as Kage.

3 Sannins and 5 Kages. No more unless there are more than 5 mods or the mods think that one of us deserves a position as Kage.

So mods or mod appointed kage's, and three sannins.

Any comments on my thoughts about possible hurting a very active members feelings?

It what the mods decide and the mods pick the Sannin as well.

Fair enough, it is up to the mods.

I don't think it is a great idea to have a closed limited group where the mods have to chose between a few deserving people for one opening so I will not add it to my original post but it is a solid idea.

Naruto
04-08-2009, 10:35 AM
Solid as a brick.

Naruto
04-08-2009, 10:38 AM
The part to achieve Chunin should be about 300 posts or 375 what do you think? Jounin should be about 565. Like the idea. If the post count is too high than the people here will get a little discouraged and won't try that hard.

Toma RNK
04-08-2009, 10:42 AM
I was thinking jounin wold be more of a mod awarded thing. Someone could have 1000 two tord posts in the off topic board but that doesn't make them a true "high ranking" community member.

I wanted to use special jounin and higher as a reward for content and participation by the mods.

This encourages quality posts and involvement instead of just posting all over the place.

At least with rankings we can monter people. It's like any other site, how many are active and how many did it for no reason. I think that Kages should be given to the montors of the site, makes since to me and leveling of post should go down a little more. You have to consider people who can't get on that often.

In my big post I had people as academy students until they had 50-100 posts.

I have seen people post 30 to 40 posts in a day. I figure this means a person will at least be familiar with the different boards and will have had time to read the faqs after their first barrage of posts.

Makes since. Like on gaia, I have 30 members in a guild and few are active. I base rank on rp and active usually. So, I can agree on your theory some. I'm trying to consider people like my friend who are not always active.

Isn't the point of ranks to reward those who are active and provide easy reference for new people to see how "involved" someone who is replying in their thead is? At 5 posts a day, 2 times a week 50 posts couldhappenin a month or so.

the Kage should be an elected position

also i see alot of the basic ranks but missing is the hidden ranks

Like village Elders(a Kage cabinet of sorts), and Personal guard

Things like Anbu Roots, Rouge-NiN, Missing-NiN and the Akatuski are more for forum groups

SRhyse
04-08-2009, 02:03 PM
You're doing great guys! Keep the ideas coming!

And since they're so many responses so far, I'm going to respond to them randomly, rather than whoever brought them up specifically-

-As for an ETA, right now we're still coming up with the ranks themselves. I'd be able to tell you more after that ;).

-I like the idea of having tiers to each rank. Like you could have a sort of A-, A, A+ version of each rank, to flesh them out a bit. Like Fledgling Genin, Genin and Upperclass Genin, rather than just Genin.

-Though I certainly love Anbu, I wasn't under the impression Anbu was necessarily a progression of the Genin/Jounin lines of ninja ranking. I thought Anbu was more along the lines of a separate, self policing organization, rather than the private/sergeant/colonel sort of thing that goes on in the 'nin' line of ranks that Naruto and company are apart of. If I'm wrong, let me know, and point me to anything that could support your case in the matter.

-As for specially appointed ranks, though I personally do love the idea and think it'd make the forum more fun and personal, I don't know if we'd be able to keep it up in the long term. With as many users as we have now, we certainly could, but not when we started hitting 10k+. This forum's explosively popular, which can sometimes work against us. I'm not saying we won't still consider them, just that they might give us a head ache, which I'm personally not fond of ;).

-For how many posts would equal which ranks, I was personally thinking they would be very high numbers. We don't want it to be something someone could blow through in a solid weekend, or a situation where everyone on the forum was kage after a good month or so. It'd be the kind of thing that you'd really have no choice but to spend time and earn, which would make it more rewarding. If we had different tiers of ranks, that'd give people something smaller to progress through in the mean time, while still giving them something to shoot for in the long term as well.

-As for how long it'd take us to implement them, within the standard forum framework, the ranks are easy as pie. There are a few features we're looking into that might make them more 'rewarding' to you guys and worth earning, which is what would take longer. That stuff's still more than a few steps south of alpha, though, so no promises or ETAs on it either ;).

Toma RNK

So something like:

Academy Fledgeling -->Academy Student --> Academy Graduate
Apprentice Genin --> Genin --> Veteran Genin
New Raised Chunin --> Chunin --> Specialist Chunin
Tokubetsu Jounin --> Jounin --> Jounin(Sensei)

Or something like that. It seems very cumbersome to me, and people please make naming suggestions.

I think the proper way to do this is....

Apprenctice
Genin
Special Genin
Veteran
Chunin
Advanced Chunin
Special Jonin
Jonin
Sannin
Anbu Black Opps
Hokage


And to rank up is to do 500 to get to Genin and goes up 200 everytime

Toma RNK
04-08-2009, 02:19 PM
Ill mention this briefly, but if you guys are looking into a "Karma" system (you should know what I mean) then one could easily tie karma AND posts together for ranking between the tiers.

I know implementing a Karma system is no short bit of work but wanted to throw the idea out there.

Mitsumi
04-08-2009, 02:30 PM
It would make sense to have Kage levels that are elected though, so the elders here can atleast keep track of how the elected Kage is using this position, not tons of Kage's that reached enough posts and abuse such a position?

it should be
" Academy student " - 0-10 posts
" Gennin " - 10-50 posts
" Chuunin " - 50-100 posts
" Jounin " - 100-150 posts

but the Anbu should also be elected because they would be asst's to the Kage's and the ones in charge, same for Sannin and or/ special Jounin?

Pretty much, though it wouldn't be as cumbersome as you'd think. The reason for the tiers mainly would have to do with the series-

There aren't many actual ranks in Naruto.

If we didn't split them up, there might be a 1000 post gap between ranks, if not more. My reasoning was to split them up to keep it more like a game, where the major ranks would still be broken up along the lines of 1000 posts, but people could still be advancing in ~250 post increments in the mean time. It'd Flow better; bonus points to anyone that gets the reference there ;).

FYI, the number of posts I'm talking about are just an example, not any sort of decision we've made as to how many posts a rank would take to get.

Toma RNK
04-08-2009, 02:45 PM
Perhaps Village elder could be the "BIG" rank. There can be plenty of elders in a village...

I think the things like Kage and Anbu should be elected by the site admins here, probably for overall not having to know which ones are all those kinds of ranks?

Another reason we're against 'elected' ranks is that it will divide the users in some way, whether it would be us or you guys electing them.

Whether they'd be seen as our 'favorites,' 'the chosen ones,' or what have you, that'd involve others essentially 'losing' to them in earning the rank. That's a big part of us wanting to keep it merit based as well, so there won't be any ill will generated by the ranks.

Toma RNK

once you reach a certain number of posts the forum software can automatically change a persons rank, so one they figure out the numbers everyone would change as soon as they posted I believe.

Mitsumi
04-08-2009, 03:51 PM
O-Oh, okay!! But theres one thing, when you become a new rank does that decide or change anything in you're purpose on this forum, i mean, new privelage or just the same?

Toma RNK
04-08-2009, 03:58 PM
Just the rank displayed Above your avatar (or below my online status as I don't have one.

Ranks do not in any way affect permissions.

EDIT: I did find a an old mod which would allow people to get access to new avatars based on rank. So that COLD be possible.

That's the bit that we're still tinkering around with. We'd certainly like it to, but would rather not get ahead of ourselves before we atleast get the ranks down.

Again, no promises on that.

The only thing I could think of i extra avatar choices, but I PROMISE you the mods would never give extra abilities to people just because they posted often or got a rank. In fact the mods have said they have no intention of giving any mod privileges to anyone not with VIZ.

I am saying that the ranks are a reqard for being here a lot and being part of the community and there MIGHT be some special benefit like more pictures for the avatar.

It also helps new people identify the regulars. Also imagine you are new and ask a question about what is ok to post on the forums. 2 people reply with completely different answers. 1 is a genin with 90 posts, the other is a jounin with 2230 posts. Who is probably telling you the right answer?

The problem is that we're the official site, so we have to think as much into it as we can. I mean, just imagine how we'd look if Kage was the first rank you got, at like 2 posts, and then at 1000 you became Gamatatsu?
(FYI, Gamatatsu's the littlest frog Naruto summons. The one that spits him out during training)

The rest of the forum would be a flame war against Viz for not knowing anything about Naruto, even though most of us here could out Naruto any Narutard, jutsu for jutsu.

Yeah, you have a point.

Will the Kage rank be regular Kage, Hokage, or a different kind of Kage from another village?

We actually do enjoy telling people we're the Kages of the forum, or atleast I do, but I was against hording it for ourselves.

If you guys are ok with it though, it does make a certain kind of sense, as they are so few and far between in the series. It would make a mockery of it if there were 100+ Kages at any point.

04-08-2009, 05:54 PM
Not to be obstinate but I really feel there should be a specific number of kage's max. We already have 3 mods, if the forums grow 4 or 5 mods is not unreasonable. As a guy who admins forums, mods and admins need a special something now and then. Yeah they can do stuff we can't but moderating is much more work than fun.

All that said I could live with HUGE number of posts for a kage rank, but seriously if you have 10,000 to 15,000 posts I would hope the mods would honor you with a custom rank of your choice.

Note: Special Jonin is LOWER than what is called a complete Jonin. Special Jonin are pretty much Chunin but they are allowed to go on more challgeing missions. Complete Jonin are Jonin who go on the most fatal missions and they get a group of 3 genin to train. Just claering that up. :mrgreen: 1. Acamey student
2. Genin
3. Chunin
4. Specail Jonin
5. Complete Jonin
6. ANBU
7. Sannin
Kage should be for mods seeing as they are just way up there. Also just because there are 3 sannin in the show doesn't mean there can only be 3 here. Sannin just means Kage level in the show, there just happen to be three of them. Referring to a past post on the Akatsuki and rouge ninjas, I was thinking that people could be given an option for rouge ninja it could be between Chunin and Speacil Jonin and for the Akatsuki it could be between Complete Jonin and Anbu and Sannin, posters can be given the "path between good and evil" It would need to be polished up a bit but I think that it is a good way to sort out that problem.

Upon joining: Academy student. (This is where the anime and manga started.)
Automatic after some posts (50-100): Genin (Showing you are in some way active)
Automatic after a larger number of posts (150-500): Chunin (To reflect this person knows his way around the forums, much like how the main characters in shipuuden know the basics of being ninjas.)

These are the two "automatic ranks."

Mods will then be able to grant additional ranks based on quality of posts and contribution to the boards.

[EDIT: Adding Special Jounin per later conversation.]

Special Jounin: A special rank for people VERY active in one specific forum. This person is not enough of an all around contributor to earn Jounin but offers a considerable amount of help in a certain forum. A suggestion is that 30% of the persons posts be in that forum though this number is by no means set in stone. It could also be offered as a prize for extreme participation in a test the mods are running. For example "we need a group of testers for XYZ project. After the project ends the mods could say "due to his/her exceptional help with XYZ project he has been promoted to "Special Jounin."

Jounin: Chunins or Special Jounin who contributes to the board regularly may be promoted to Jounin. The Jounin rank may not be removed once attained. It implies active participation across a majority of the boards.(This reflects the "main veterans of the board" much like Kakashi, Guy, and such. Not just time but quality is considered)

ANBU: The ANBU Rank is a high rank given to few. Only the most active, Jounins may be promoted to ANBU by the mods. ANBU should be few and the most active. After a period of inactivity, or if they become old grouchy men, ANBU members may be returned to jounin. Much like how Kakashi stoped being super active in missions and has returned to being a Jounin to train his team.

Kage ranks are the ultimate authority so I would suggest they be reservered for mods. Perhaps the different mods could be different "Kage's". It would add flare and personality to the mod team.

As for San-nin, there were three of them, and none of us are.

As for ROOT, they are very specialized and not thoroughly explained at this time and so should not be implemented as it could cause problems later if the series goes into more depth.

This is a great idea but there is one possible problem... Some people will post any garbage just to get the required number of posts... We don't want quantity so much as quality... Anyone agree?

That is a concern. On the one hand, Viz isn't going to lay the interpretive smack down on people's posts for being less shiny, but on the other, we would prefer people earn merit through meritus posts.

It's definitely something to consider.

That probably would work, but if the rules are broken too many times, that person should be banned for a period of time equal to the offense. Also, the third ban should be the final one (three strikes, you're out rule). (Yes, I'm a hard taskmistress, but only if you break the rules, lie, or steal.) What do you think? That way, we 'honest' ninja would know which ones to keep an eye on and it might actually make the Moderator's jobs a bit easier as well.... hmmm......

Also, the third ban should be the final one (three strikes, you're out rule). (Yes, I'm a hard taskmistress, but only if you break the rules, lie, or steal.) What do you think? That way, we 'honest' ninja would know which ones to keep an eye on and it might actually make the Moderator's jobs a bit easier as well.... hmmm......[/quote]

I think that giving people who break rules their own rank is almost like rewarding them. Some people romanticize or want to be outcasts. This would just encourage negative behavior. Making the mods jobs harder and the boards less fun.

For the fourth time in this thread, Special Jonin is a lesser rank than Jounin. Special jounins are Chunins who have 1 area of specialty that is at or above jounin level.

Ibiki is a special jounin because of his insight into peoples minds but is not a qualified jounin in any other field.

What do you guys think about including mission ranks in some way? A, B, C, D, etc.

Just brainstorming, but for instance, what if you progressively gained completed missions
as you moved up in number of posts. These would be the stepping stones between the main ranks.

Seems like it wouldn't be feasible to display visually, but perhaps someone
can run with the idea and make it better.

It would be fun, but virtually impossible to implemen

Yeah..What if Mission's are based on posts, and the higher the number of posts the mission is worth the higher rank the Mission has. To go up in Ninja rank you have to complete a certain number of certain ranked Missions. Bad Idea or not?

Or was this already said? :|

It is similar to my thoughts actually.

I think of it like this: you have each RANKS post requirements such as :

Academy=0-50
Genin = 50 through 300
Chunin = 300-1000 ect

Then you look at how many missions each person should have before they typically move up.

For example you say "Genins usually do 8 D class missions and 4 C class missions."

Thats 12 missions in 250 posts so about every 20 posts with a few extra.
50=D
60=D
70=D
90=D
110=C
130=D
150=C
170=D
190=D
210=C
230=D
249=C

As users hit these numbers their completed missions increase. This way when you get to Jounin level with HUGE number differences you can have a bunch of C ans D missions to break up the monotony. The backend would work just like the rank engine except perhaps you could have Ultra S missions which could be awards for contests or such. You could display mission completion under the avatars. A simple ACP modification would allow granting of missions if the mods wanted to work "missions" into theme threads or prizes and such. Just have the mission counter for each "Mission type" variable increment at those values.

Possibly workable?

I dunno the backend framework is workable and a relatively easy mod and I know viz has some people who could eventually code it. 4 new variables per user won't kill the SQL database. The table for WHEN ranks get updated is static so multiple checks at the same time won't kill the server too bad, though checking every post might stink.

Perhaps there should be a "posts as of last mission update" variable for each person and then have a script update the missions and change that variable when done to reflect the new changes every night just to cut back on database access during peak times.

As I said, a little hard, but not outside the realm of possibility.

One more variable in the "missions" table. Make it so the scripts never add it. The change the ACP to have a button that increments a specific users variable by 1.

It's not much extra work at all, the new table will exist and one more column isn't hard. Sure you have to modify the ACP (likely the overview dropdown under a users profile if you don't build one for missions) with a single button "+1 special mission."

As far as whether or not you want to run a ewards thread and manage doing something like that is entirely up to you, but it would be easy enough to implement once the considerable effort to make the ranks system is done.

My forums are nowhere near as complex as this one is. I do not have to work on corperate networks. I have no idea how many different viz web and internal services are being used on this server or if it is part of a larger server farm.

I dabble with mods and have admined a few forums, I am hardly an authority on this, I just figured that I would throw out my opinion and maybe it would be helpful to the coders who actually have to do the darn work. Please don't take my suggestions as anything more than the ranting of someone who knows enough to get himself in trouble.

That's an interesting idea! A problem I see, though, is that it will force people to invest time in a certain area on the forum, and glut an area with "artificial" acitivity. Actually the whole rank idea could potentially make things lame with people inflating their post counts. I hope that doesn't happen!

Also, it's important to note that I'm not sure how many avatars are going to be available once we give you guys new ones, so there may not be enough "left over" to have many that are unlockable.

well, i think that the ranking shouldnt be so complicated. some people can get all mixed up, which can cause trouble! dont get me wrong, id love to see ranking system here; id bring us closer to the naruto world! here are my rankings:
1. Academy student (you cant be a ninja if you dont know the basics ^_~)
2. Genin
3. Chunin
4. Jonin
5. Sanin (there can be more than three legendary ninja!)
and if you dont log on for a certian number of weeks or something, you could become a rouge ninja! it wont limit you on anything on the forum; it'll just mean that you haven't been on for a while and you are out-of-date. if you log on like 30 days in a row if you're a rouge ninja, then you can be returned to the rank you were at. like, if you're a chunin, and you dont log on for like, 3 months, then after 2 weeks, then you'll be returned to your chunin rank. and ranks could be based on your number of posts :!: just an idea... but i like it :!:

Not, really. As was discussed before, if the ranks are too easy to achieve, it won't be a challenge at all. I've only been on a week and I'd almost be a Chunin alreadya and you'd be a Jonin. (And I don't post unless I really do have something to say. I look a LOT though...)

I like the reporting idea to report junk, than a mod checks it, and deducts the total post number they have got. I also like the idea of this:

Junior Member (0-50)
Pre-Member (50-100
Member (100-250)
Special Member (250-600)
Upper Member (600-1000)
Anbu Member (1000-2000)
Senior Member (2000-3000)

i think you guys all have good ideas but what if somewon finds almost nothing that they post? then what would happen.

I also think the ratings should be
Academy student = 1-20
genin = 21-40
chuin = 41-60
jonin = 61-80
specil jonin = 81-110
anbu = 111-140
specil agent = 141-180
sanin = 181-220
(optinal from here on down)

but u could also have like an anti-spam kinda thing where it detects just garbage posts like (ex: duh... what,) and that way you can also use the other idea

What we need is an arcade of games and that is how you earn tokens for the games

As well as getting more avatars and possible banner useage lol

thats a great idea!!!! what you could also do is like earn tokens for every (ex: 50 posts) or like you can earn tokens by doing other things on the website, like participating and saying your ideas to try and help, then Sage Mode can clarify if you get awarded tokens. ( no offense for not mentioning you SRhyse and Lightning Chakra)

but what you could also have are these random things where ( ex. you go to a certain place on the forum and post a certain number of replies,) then each person can have like this token counter and then u can use it to buy prizes, like different avatars and more avatar styles, like gaara with shukaku, or something.

anyways i know this reply is LOOONG but i'd just like to say that you could have special things where you notify everyone, and when the special holidays come you can give out a special edition avatar for a week or so, and then for those who miss it, they can trade avatars with someone who is willing to trade it for a different avatar.

Very cool ideas. But admittedly, not that simple to implement. I guess at some point we'll have to put our heads together as moderators and see what it will take to run any special forum mission/games/contests. It would certainly take everything to another level.

I'm just saying try your best. Eventually you guys will get something going. I think you guys and Naruto-arena.com should kind of combine together. It's a online battle system site. They have some good ideas on there.

I do like how that site works, but it'd be a massive legal endeavor for us to combine with an outside site like that, even if they weren't likely violating all manner of copyright laws.

Academy Student- earned by joining the forum.
Genin- since they're just getting started, Genin should be earned wen an Academy Student has made 15 decent posts or more.
Chunin- earned wen a Genin makes 45 decent posts or more or has a created a topic with 39 decent posts or more.
Jonin- earned wen a Chunin has made 135 decent posts or more and has created a topic with 75 decent posts or more
Special Jonin: earned wen a Jonin has 105 decent posts or more on the same group(such as Battlegrounds, Attacks and Weapons, etc.) or has created 15 decent topics, each with at least 45 decent posts in the same group. Does not have to be earned to reach next rank.
Anbu Black Ops: earned wen a Jonin or a Special Jonin has made 270 decent posts or more and has created a decent topic with 105 decent posts or more.

Rouge _____: given wen a user has made a specific amount of off topic posts. the amount of off topic posts needed to decreases as the user goes up the ranks. Rouges will not be able 2 have the same freedoms as normal users, such as not able to earn medals( I will explain medals in a minute), some avatars will not be accesible, and cannot go up the ranks. A Rogue can stop being a Rogue, but they must give up any medals obtained, and must start over as an Academy Student. Any posts made by the Rogue will not be deleted, but will not count for the the fresh start.

Medals are special awards given wen specific achievements are commited such as a medal for being apart of the forum for a spedific amount of time. I feel like ive typed too much.

i like working through the ranks as a lot of people have mentioned.also i think we should put in rouges and akatsuki in there since to a lot of people they are ranks and are a type of ninja.also i think we should keep ranks such as sannin and kage,just have more the the usual amount,but you have to be like REALLY REALLY active for those.

I think all these are really good ideas! If we did get a user ranking system thing do you know when it might be, like, up and working?

and i think a special Jounin is higher than a regular one. Anko is a special Jounin. At least thats what it says on NarutoPedia.
Jonin is higher than Special Jonin I believe. And these ideas are really cool!

i doubt it, i only saw one person with a yellow name like that at first, then since i've posted that i saw a few others. i think it has something to do with rank...but then again it would have been posted by a mod and it still said their rank was genin, they just had a yellow name

Here's the discription of the group. You can find it if you go to Board Index and scroll all the way down. It's in yellow too.

"A test group to try out some village affiliation settings on the site.

I tried to read all 208 posts but nearly fried my brain so sorry if I sound redundant to anyone. And I have no idea how a forum works:

I definitely like the idea of having in between ranks. I think that new peoples should be Academy Students- As a first requirement should have to post in every forum on the board index (ha I'd still be a student) just to get the basics. Then should rank up on a scale for example 600 posts. Before becoming Genin they should take a test or be sent on a mission (the same for everyone to keep it simple) such as creating their own forum thing.

Genin- Have overall three levels or so. such as mentioned before. Hence the number of posts required to rank up should be divisible by the levels like 300:1500. And just to make it interesting have another test before ranking up such as creating a poll.

Chunin- Three levels. 600:1800 more posts than total. Should also be based on an activity scale*

Special Jonin: I like the idea of having a speciality in a certain forum. It should not have a basis of amount of posts but with the percentage of posts in a certain forum as mentioned before and should get special recognition for helping on a forum like this one. [I think tomarnk should get a special recognition for this post for example]

Jonin- Three levels. +900:2700. Should be a well rounded individual and shows it by their posts. Posts should be based off of random selection**

Village Elder- Not only should this person have minimum requirements of posts they should also have seniority and alot of activity*.

Sanin/Kage- As far as I'm concerned we have three sanin already- our mods. And because I have read about so much trouble with having limited kages it should just be a rank that people reach after a ridiculous amount of posts.

*Activity Scale- This should measure how many times someone comes on the forum. If somebody comes on once a week(like me ;) ) then they are not that active.

**Random Selection- There was a concern about quantity over quality. Here's an idea (and again I'm not an expert) but if somebody writes garbage just rank up then they will usually always write garbage. So after a certain amount of posts randomly select one of their posts and check it for garbage.

For those who like a total scale better:
Academy Student_____Immediately enrolled after registering
Genin_____(Posts on all forums in board index) 600 posts
Chunin_____2100 posts
Jonin_____3900 posts
Village Elder_____6600
Kage_____10000 posts muhahahahaha!

Thats all i got and if you read all this I congratulate you. You may kiss the bride.

P.S. How do I post someone's post on my post?

04-14-2009, 04:11 AM

Genin - 200 Posts.

Chuunin - 1000 Posts.

Jounin - People who are very active; Help out with the site; Post Frequently; They are picked by the're respecting Kage.

Ho/Tsuchi/Rai/Kaze/Mizu | Kage - Given to moderators; They are in charge of a group or village, and are highly regarded. 8-)

i dont know how many mods there are but if there is enough to make like villages u can make the leaf water fire hidden mist and such.
the mods will be the leaders and such and the ranking that the deidara explained could be used on by the mods to promote and demote their subordinates (such a harsh word lol)
that would be cool because it would bring like competition to have good and fair "fights" on the posts, but since quantity doesnt beat quality i think u should go by another special way to rank up the members.... which i have not figured out how.

So that's why I'm starting as a Gein. The rankings haven't been institute or how to gain that rank. It should of course go by the number of posts, but it shouldn't be so easy. Remember it took Naruto 3 times to pass the final exam to become a Gein & despite all the power he's gain, he hasn't gain a higher rank. I'm in another Naruto forum & w/in a year gain Jounin status, but they updated their rankings. So now I'm a Gein again, but I don't mind. I believed their new rankings s/b as is & I'm a few posts away from Chunin anyway. But there's a problem, if gaining a rank is by the number of posts, could see a number of meaningless posts. Increasing the number of posts just to gain rank. But gaining rank s/not be so easy & start off as Academy Student (because that what Naruto started as) & end w/ Kage (that's Naruto's final goal). My conception & reasons for rankings:

Academy Student (what we all start as)
Genin 500 posts
Chunin 1000 posts
Jounin 1500 posts
When Naruto finally pass his finals, became a Genin & part of team 7, whether he remain a Genin depended on his Jounin teacher. W/ so many Genin surviving the 1st part of the Chunin exam, they went thru a preliminary exam to weed out the weakest before going to the final exam. After all that, only one was given the rank of Chunin, Shikamaru. Eventually, all became Chunin (exception Naruto), but very few became Jounin. What I'm saying, if it's that difficult to gain rank in Naruto's world, the same s/b for this forum.

Special Jounin 2000 posts
ANBU 3000 posts
ROOT 3000 posts
These are the elite of the Shinobi. Very few can match them outside their rank. The last 2 ranks, U are chosen to join rather then U seek to join. Not sure how to work this in.

Sannin 3500 posts
Sage 4000 posts
Very few are granted (Jiriaya, Tsunade, Orochimaru were given this title by an enemy for their prowess during war time) or achieved these status. Again not sure how to work this out.

Kage 5000 posts
Only 1 person per village gets this title & this s/b be the hardest to achieve.

The number of post may be high, but it shouldn't be easy to gain rank. It can be lower. As I said before, it may attract meaningless posts just to increase posts for ranking. It can be base on the number of posts for the1st 4 ranks, but the higher rankings could be base on the number of threads a member creates & the number of replies.

There's one rank that has only been mention a few times. I believed we've only seen his wife. But supposely he has the highest title, the Feudal Lord.

What do you mean few are granted the Sannin and Sage thing? People could hav ethe same number of posts and that would be wrong. Also, by the Kage thing what do you mean 1 person per village?

People are throwing out the same ideas, but different number of posts. We need something else.

i think all the peoples ideas are good i think if there's a lot more rankings is better but it might be more difficult to produce in a program but it will make it more fun plus it shouldn't say what you need to do to get that ranking to keep everyone in suspense and make them try everything just to get what they want i hope i helped at least a little l8t3z yours truely,

All of your ideas will work but how to get them is another story like every 50 someodd posts you have you level up in ranking...will that work
