Since this is a new forum (even though it seems to be made up of JA players, mostly) what are the new titles? (For those of us under 1250 posts).

Mine seems to have changed from whatever it was before (I forget) to 'Monkey'.

It seems to use the Monkey Island forums ranks, they'll most probably be changed soon. ^_~

Swoosh
01-17-2004, 01:38 PM
Hehe...yeah, we'll change that shortly. We're actually using the default LucasForums titles right now.

What will they be? I guess Imperials/Rebels would suit it good for this game? ;)

Perhaps they should be changed to the classes from the game or something similar. But there probably won't be enough. They might just be the same as the JK.net. Who knows? ;)

the clone campaings are going to be an equal part of the game as Imperial/Rebels, so that wouldnt fit very well.

Then add in Clones somewhere, like Clone Liteunieut.

01-17-2004, 09:39 PM
ahem, that would be ARC trooper, if you please. and you must remember Republic soliders. but I think the titles should wait until we et further information on what the different units name would be.

No, ARC Troopers are the Elite Troopers, the best of their kind. Lietuants are one of the colors, Blue, Yellow, Red, or Green. I think its green.......

Hermie
01-17-2004, 09:55 PM
…right! my mistake. but it still wouldnt be enough. who dreamt up the standard Star Wars titles anyways?

EDIT: oh, and we're missing an entire army: the droid army.

01-17-2004, 10:04 PM
If you guys are interested in recommending some user titles...feel free to post them here. Here's what the default titles are to give you an idea of how we do this...

Bantha Fodder (Minimum Posts: 0)
Pit Droid (Minimum Posts: 50)
Sith Probe (Minimum Posts: 100)

Sith (Minimum Posts: 700)

So, we could just go with that or try something more game related...

01-17-2004, 10:12 PM
Clone CHild (0 to 99)
Imperial Recruit (100)

TIE Pilot (700)
Clone Pilot (750)
Rebel Pilot (800)
Imperial Dignitary (850)
ARC Trooper (900)
Rebel Hero (950 and up til custom title)

Best i could come up with. :)

Hermie
01-17-2004, 10:19 PM
not all of those are fit for the game, like… oh, ill just do the list:

Bantha Fodder (Minimum Posts: 0) | works
Pit Droid (Minimum Posts: 50) | dont work
Sith Probe (Minimum Posts: 100) | dont work
Battle Droid (Minimum Posts: 150) | works
Ewok (Minimum Posts: 200) | works, but maybe a little lower on the list?
Tusken Raider (Minimum Posts: 250)| doesnt work
Wampa (Minimum Posts: 300) | doesnt work
Jawa (Minimum Posts: 350) | maybe, depends.
Gungan (Minimum Posts: 400) | works (maybe lower)
Bantha (Minimum Posts: 450) | maybe
Wookiee (Minimum Posts: 500) | maybe
Rancor (Minimum Posts: 550) | doesnt work
StormTrooper (Minimum Posts: 650)|works (further down?)
Sith (Minimum Posts: 700) |works
Jedi (Minimum Posts: 750) | works
Sith Lord (Minimum Posts: 800) |works
Jedi Master (Minimum Posts: 1000) | works

but I will still wait until we know more about the game before sugesting any.

EDIT: hey Zed, arent we (you) forgetting something?

the droid army
and also, I think clones rank higher than Rebels, being better trained and all.

ZBomber
01-17-2004, 10:31 PM
Ah, yeh. Forgot about the droid army. Not many good droid Army ranks though, maybe throw in Battle droid and Droideka in the ones that aren't every 50.....

Hermie
01-17-2004, 10:36 PM
there is also droid luitenant:bdroid2: and those big thingys which was at the end of AOTC. (they surround the Jedis, but Yoda drops by with an itsy-bitsy droid army to defeat them.)

I personally say revert back to the whole "Monkey" thing - seemed good to me.

Anyway, I'm sure there's something more important to worry about. *Checks in diary*. OK, there's not, but I really don't think it's that important in the grand scheme of things :p

Nah, but the admins want some ideas for titles when they get around to it. ;)

hey Z, can you try to make a revised version of your ranks including the ones I corrected you on?? (im too lazy to do it myself)

ExcelsioN
01-18-2004, 07:15 AM
This threads come a long way while I was sleeping...

Anyway, I say that we have the titles that Z came up with. Those would suit this place well. ;)

gorganfloss
01-18-2004, 07:59 AM
Yeah, Z's titles seem pretty fitting. But I think you should make the lowest be something like Gungan, just so people will want to actually post more than once or twice. No one wants to be a gungan. :rolleyes:

Hermie
01-18-2004, 12:03 PM

How about 'Gungan Grunt' for 0-50. Ok, so they're not in the game but its a demeaning lower rank. :evil2:

01-18-2004, 02:30 PM
Hehe, that might work. I like Bantha Fodder though :) It's something that is really demeaning but you kinda have to have a brain to figure out. :)

I'll have to wait to update the titles...I've never done it before and can't figure out how to do so :|

01-18-2004, 02:40 PM
YAY! New titles to the people!!! :D

How about adding destroyer droid?

And herminator, about the clones, they are also cloned off Jango Fett, da man! That should qualify for like 650 posts ;)
And maybe fit in Mandalorian Warrior, just for coolness? :cool:

01-18-2004, 04:04 PM
I still think that we should have Gungan Grunt. Then have Bantha Fodder. From a Gungan to Bantha Food. Hehe. :lol:

Perhaps we should have stuff like AT-ST pilot if there aren't enough. But I agree with Swoosh. I don't want to be a droid.

0-50 can be moisture farmer. No one wantsd to be a moisture farmer. :p

Are moisture farmers gonna be in the game? Probably not. :pSo if you wanna go with something not in the game, I'd go with Gungan grunt. ^_^

Moisture farmers could be, for all we know. They could be people who run around (like the Ewoks on Endor).

Gungan Grunt. I want to see the look on their faces when they look at their title. :lol:

I like the Bantha Fodder aswell, after that rank it should be Bantha Cleaner. Thats really demeaning who would want to have a title like that?

gorganfloss
01-18-2004, 06:05 PM
Or you could use Bantha Poodoo. I'd give anything not to be that.

<.<

*Changes title*

Anyway, I'd say leave it as Bantha Fodder, put it as Gungan (Grunt), or put it as Bantha Poodoo.

btw, is 'Sucker for that quick reward' taken from the Metallica song No Leaf Clover?

Father Torque
01-18-2004, 06:41 PM
Ya, i think Bantha Fooder is a classic title. But it wouldnt be cool if we copied, so we should ghange it to Bantha Cleaner, as Michael said.

Also, we should keep it the same, as in 50 posts per title. So we stay the same, but we have different titles.

I think the actual members should make the titles, then have the admins check over them. Just to make it balanced.

Yeah this would be a good idea kinda like a competition to see who makes up the best ranks. Or take ranks from everyones rank list to make up one whole list would be a good idea too.

On topic again;
Elite Stormtrooper
Clone cannoneer
Rebel Saboteur
Geonosian warrior
Jet pack clone
Battle Droid Field Marshall
Battle Droid Prototype

And an idea to how to pick titles; Just pick like the 15 best. :)

The_One
01-18-2004, 09:23 PM
Perhaps, in honour of this Ewok "fad", we should have Wicket (sp?) as the most highly ranked title?

Ok, now I'm just encouraging it :p

Wow, great work swoosh. Your new forum seems to be sinking into LF perfectly.

The list is awesome, it included everyones ideas. That really cool. You dont really see forumers opinions getting used like that.

I just think one last thing should be adjusted to make the site perfect. When you clcik below the bar on the scroll bar,(when you want to go down faster). The scroll bar is higlighted in an aqua marine color, its kinda obnoxious, if you catch my drift. Would it be possible to change to a color like the yellow used to indicate the scroll arrows?
