Question So whats the new titles?

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. ^_~

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.

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.......

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

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?

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

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.....

there is also droid luitenant 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

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

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.

I think I'm gonna post here now, I don't want to be a gungan. So lets keep out any mention of gungan from these forum titles.

I don't think we *need* the droid army...none of can really be droids anyways :P

But, I'll take a look at the rankings and implement them. I kinda want more demeaning lower ranks

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

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 :|

YAY! New titles to the people!!!

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?

I still think that we should have Gungan Grunt. Then have Bantha Fodder. From a Gungan to Bantha Food. Hehe.

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.

Are moisture farmers gonna be in the game? Probably not. So 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.

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?

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.

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.

Anyone can have any custom title they want. If I wanted, me and Gorgan can both have the same title of Bantha PooDoo.

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.
