Personally, I have liked the Jawa since I was like, 5 or 6, but the gungan is a pure demotion.

*cough*

well let me explain where these ranks come from. :D
before the great Merge of the forums what is now the LUCASFORUMS, all forums were separte and all.. each had their own ranking. at the rogue squadron board you only had 2 titles. trainee and rogue. your became a rogue after 600 posts and got a visor on the helmet we had. well the Galactic battlegrounds were the most new forums of them all and they had the Avatar system and ranking system. they came up with these ranks and they aplied for all forums when the merged.. but some forums have already thrown them out.. if you go to the Rogue squyadron board and you post something there you will see that you rank is totally different.

Now ... if you want other ranks... you should think about what sort of ranks would suit the Galaxies forums. and then make a list.. and then forward them to the guy who can change them.. most likely Metalus or ChrisC3po.

ill ask what the current rank system is and post it here ina while ok?

The playable species?
Stormtrooper?
Jedi?
Chocolate Covered Gnort?

We should have a new ranking system and one of the top ones should be 'Pantless Gavor thrown from a van'.

Ok, i'm going home for the weekend, and I promise to return sans pants. I mean, with more humor than just pant jokes.

I think it would be interesting if it were optional as far as ranks. For isntance (the obvious) jedis. like starting out at fs (force sensative) then going to padawan or whatever and so on or maby choosing something to do with the military or the different occupations such as going from hairdresser to super-hairdresser to super-mega-ultra-phenominal-biscuit-wookiee-freakish-lap dancing-baby seal-hairdresser or something like that.

The *yaddayadda*-Lore forums have an interesting version of it, where you choose 'good' or 'bad'. After that, there's two different paths of rankings.
