I like the ranking system. A little extra incentive to post more.

If there is one critism however, it's very one sided. What if you don't like the Andalites?

Something with more races, or even having an option of good (Andalite) and bad (Yeerk).

Yeerk could have been something like:

Yeerk Emperor
Yeerk council member
Visser 1
Visser 2
Visser 3
Sub Visser
Human Controller
Hork-Bajir Controller
Taxxon Controller
Gedd Controller
Hostless

Not a bad suggestion, but I'm not sure how well it could be implemented. I personally would love to have a Yeerk rank. You all know how I feel about }:)> (Of course, that would require changing my rank from Chee, which I'd like since I'm not a fan of the Chee)
Here's how I think that might balance out:

Councilor = Admiral
Visser = Captain
Sub-Visser = Commander
Human Controller = War-Prince
Hork-Bajir Controller = Prince
Taxxon Controller = Warrior
Gedd Controller = Aristh
Hostless = Civillian

Again, though, I don't know how easily this could be implemented or if it would be a viable option. I suppose that someone might be able to choose a setting at the UCP (again, not sure of the feasibility). And I'm not sure what coudl be used as images. Maybe Kandrona generators (there's a description of one in book 7)...

I'm sorry. Two sets of ranks isn't possible.

Well, that's a shame. Oh well; I'm happy with the Andalite system. This was mostly just idle musing.

Out of curiosity, though, why is it impossible? I believe you (if you say you can't do it, it really must be impossible) but I'm curious as to why.

I wouldn't say it's totally impossible. First of all I'd have have to tamper with the default phpBB code, which, now I don't have time to do.
Secondly, I'd have to update the code with every phpBB update, which itself is a very tedious process.

I could do it if I had enough time on my hands.

I thought it would be something like that. Don't trouble yourself about it, then. The Andalite ranks are fine.

No idea. Speaking of which, my 'GPC Tamer' title is gone. Why? :?
