Is it possible to receive a higher rank than 'Bay Watcher' ?
I doubt it since everyone (even Toady I think) is at Bay Watcher unless very new. Hopefully new ranks will be added, but DF is the main priority of course.

The board supports only 4 levels (and 2 of those are blank for the administrator and moderators), and I don't know enough about perl or whoever it is to change it.

I added a fake one just by editing my profile. I would love to have ranks though:

New Immigrant
Peasant
Fisher
Engraver
Crafter
Brewer
Metalcrafter
Sheriff
Mayor
Baron
Count Consort (<- for laughs)
King

Those are so Dwarf-centric.  What about all the Squiggles fans?

Personally, I think brewer should be above King.

Who cares about forum rank? As if posting a lot would suddenly make you more special...

I know this is the Dwarf fortress forums, but it is only a branch of the Bay12 forums.  So I think we should include ranks from all games.  Note, I have not played liberal crime squad yet, so I don't know what to add from there.

Arriving Migrant
Flesh Ball
Dungeon master (D&D fans are looked down upon by this community right?)
Skittering Kobold
Peasant
Mason
WWI Medic
Brewer
Metalcrafter
Sheriff
Face Horror
Mayor
Baron
Duke
King
Titan

Toadmaster (or anything toad related) for ToadyOne
Master of Toes (or anything toe related) for ThreeToe

Of course the forum is fine as it is; so if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Does everyone understand the difference now?

from Liberal Crime Squad, obviously, you'd have to add "homeless brownie-selling hacker".

Guys, no obvious post count is a good thing. They just cause problems.

Yeahh I think setting our own titles below Bay Watcher like we do now is cool.

Personally, I think Rank Titles and Post Counts (and avatars), all of which we don't have here, only take away from the actual subject of discussion.

I like things the way they are, NO RANKS, just US and TOADY.

I hate getting raided and put into jail for 20 years because of selling brownies.

As you journey to the center of the world, feel free to read the death announcements of those dwarves that suffer your neglect.

One billion b-balls dribbling simultaneously throughout the galaxy. One trillion b-balls being slam dunked through a hoop throughout the cosmos. I can feel every single b-ball that has ever existed at my fingertips, I can feel their collective knowledge channeling through my veins. Every jumpshot, every rebound and three-pointer, every layup, dunk and free throw.

I disagree with you on avatars. Small avatars allow me to see at a glance who posted what, making discussion easier to follow.

Could be worse.  You could be sentenced to a hammering!
