Yeah true, you do have a point. It would be weird for a very very dedicated member who has worked his/her way up to that position to do something that is out of theme. But you never know, do you consider this guy: :dmf: to be in theme with Lotr?

There will be a rank above Champion, but I am keeping that one under wraps for the moment. As for the use of Races within the rank titles, we'll be adding a Realm aspect to the site in the future and linking it to a special character you can create for use in official One Ring games, so it might seems a bit odd to see an Elven princeling of Angmar.

The other thing is that I wanted to avoid many of the same ranks that TLA are using, namely:

Villager
Squire
Warrior
Standard Bearer
Captain
Lord
Ranger

Wasn't sure that you were going to be bring back individual race titles. Read somewhere else before by someone that posted (parapharse); "having different race titles will confuse the rankings because you won't know exactly which equates to what, so it's abandoned." Glad to hear though that you are considering bringing back separate race rankings to the board, I'm in favor of it.

And yeah that's a lot of common rankings with TLA, don't know how much it should matter though except on the notion of community identity.

The rank above Champion? The name is not important, it's getting there that counts.

About the custom rank idea, I actually wouldn't like it if members created their own, there will always be 1 goofball going against the theme of the site and will put "Captain of USS Enterprise" ( I'm talking to you Ingold!, jk lol), "Spider-man", "Jedi Knight", and whatever.

I would like the custom rank idea if several were created by the site admin(s) that would fit the theme and the member would just choose one. Example of suggestions that some others here already mentioned like; King of Men, Steward, Istari/Wizard, Ring Bearer, Dark Lord, Lord of the Rings, Castellan, etc. Or member created title that just simply needs to be approved by the admin that strictly follows the theme of the site would probably solve the oddball problem.


Hey, we all know I'm Captain of the Kinsale, Akira-class starship. :P
But I take your point. Some custom titles would be fine, and on sites where they have them they're often just another fun custom field, but I'd think we'd be better off maintaining the LotR theme that has always been so important to this site.

I have to say I'm not entirely sure Custom Titles are the way to go, though. I'd much rather just wait and see what new monstrosity* Alan's come up with instead.


* Monstrosity was the first word to come into my head, and it was too fun to replace with a more correct word. :oops:

Though the Princess Bride fan in me REALLY wanted to go with Commoner, I voted Villager since people were expressing a potential 'offense' with Commoner.

Thanks for caring enough to ask our input on this!!!


I think that it is a shame that Princess Bride was not put to the vote!
Or perhaps we could have the Gollum or Fatty Lumpkin of the month for individuals putting out spurious or annoying information?

We could also have a Lobelia Sackville Baggins award for the most naggy blogger of the month/year or whenever someone else deserves to win her tiara off of the offending individual!

I am not terribly serious about the above suggestions, but it might be amusing.

Not if you win. I think it'd be seriously damaging to the site's nice, friendly atmosphere to have a "nastiest person" contest.

I have to agree about this a public award for worst poster would put people away from the site. I think if someone was bad, it should be in a more discreet way. I'm aware the old last alliance had a vermin rank which was for posting bad things or something similar. I think something more discreet like that would be better since I don't usually read ranks before I consider what they are saying.

Are we planning on having a round 3 anytime soon?

EDIT: Just read through the "first round" out of boredom and realized how nooby and ill-informed this post was xP

Princess Bride could still be a contender?
