Great idea :) Someone should PM a mod

A mod is already aware. ;)

Personally, while it sounds cool, it really wouldn't fit with our current motif of Andalite-style ranks.

Perhaps, Elfangor, but that might not be the best idea. It might draw too much of an official affiliation between Neomorphs and AFF. While if Neomorphs had an official home it would be AFF (and to a lesser extent Neopedia), I'm not sure we want to link the two so tightly. AFF is a place for all Animorphs fans to come together, after all, and while I'm beginning to suspect that Neomorphs is more popular than I thought, it still only represents one segment of the fandom. While I doubt fans would be turned off by the ranks (they probably would not know where they came from), it still sends a sort of message that I'm not sure we want to send. That said, if Ellimist thinks that Neomorphs-based ranks are good for AFF, I'd be honored and on board the whole way.

I'll talk to him. I think we need ranks anyway, even if we make our own.

Ax always talks about the electorate in the books as being the ones in charge. Well, in the Roman empire, they had an electoral college, and they had some guys called Prince-Electors(with an electorate being the dominion of a Prince-Elector). Interestingly enough, the prince thing fits in with the andalite theme.

The Prince-Elector was a member of the Electoral College in Rome. The dignity of Elector was very prestigious and second on to the king or emperor (aka us folks with custom ranks).
