Ranking System - Page 2

October 21st, 2004  
Apparently, Field Marshall and/or Five Star General are not going to be potential ranks. I think that maybe they ought to be attainable for some ludicrous post total along the lines of 10,000 or something like that.

As far as the NCO business goes, I guess that the NCO's from some other NATO countries works differently, so we have to make the thing universal or whatever. You could go for the ultimate NCO for your avatar:

Haven't decided what to do with with the rank system yet.
We are discussing it now, so we'll see what we can come up with.

All suggestions are welcome, but as thunder said here, I don't think we'll use NCO ranks, since they are different for each country, and many countries doens't have NCOs (including Norway).

In the US Military NCO Ranks/Grades there are a possible 12 to select from, i.e., Private E-1, Private E-2, Private First Class, Corporal E-4, Sergeant E-5, Staff Sergeant E-6, Sergeant First Class E-7, Master Sergeant E-8, First Sergeant E-8, Staff Sergeant Magor E-9, Command Sergeant Magor E-9, Command Sergeant Magor of the Army E-9.

Select 12 countries throw them in a hat, draw the country and select the rank/grade in accordance with the country seleced as some countries have fewer ranks/grades than others.

I'd go with the NCO rank instead of Officer but probably would suddenly die if it was Army rank

or you could pick one rank from every nation/service and boom you have a bijillion international ranks

Nicer looking ranks would be nice. These are great, but could be a little better. Not a big deal though.
