Will this png work?  It should have a transparent background.  What's the pixel size of the icon you need?  Maybe I can fiddle this to show more detail.

You make me happy. I can't tell you how much that white border annoyed me.

15x15: Good luck with that ;).
System wont accept anything larger? Seems odd?

Edit: Must...resist...impractical to implement...idea that if were gunna have symbols on each, the first should have an S like symbol, the next an N like symbol, the next an A like symbol, then an F...you can see where I'm going...

So here we are, 18 days later. Looks like 5 votes is all we are going to get. Glad to see that I got a vote :D, but Baztek is the clear favorite.

About time to wrap this up for now?

Maybe we could throw this into the News/Announcements and leave it open to vote. Put in the title [Please vote, Poll remains open] or some such.

Next on the list:
Should we change the post requirements or keep them the same?
Also, if we do go with Baztek's list, anyone have suggestions for additional groups or modifications (sorry to bastardize your hard work :P)?

I hold for the five categories for the moment and I think Baztek's list is fine.

My only suggested addendum to the count would be:
0
25
100
250
500

Otherwise, I like the gaps and the counts - but, of course, I leave it to the Quorum.

I also think there should be something at 25. Since I can't think of another name to add either below Emwama or between Emwama and Caste-Menial, I suppose lowering 50 to 25 seems like a good idea....

EDIT
Wait, isn't there a "merchant" cast that is somewhere between Menial and Noble? Then we could do this:

0 - Emwama
25 - Caste-Menial
75 - Caste-Merchant
150 - Caste-Noble
250 - Great Name
500 - Old Name

That way you preserve the separation and you add a progressive +25 to each rank, so that its +25, +50, +75, +100 ... until 500 but whatever.
My brain likes that pattern :) so this is my vote.

So my revised suggestions for Baztek's list (minus brackets) and Wilshire's numbers:

Emwama (0)
Suthenti (Caste-Menial) (25)
Momurai (Caste-Apparati) (75)
Kijneta (Caste-Noble) (150)
Great Name (300)
Old Name (500)

There is also Nahat (Caste-Priest) but I don't know if that is necessary for our social ladder...

Caste-Apparati?

I never remember reading those names at all. Is that something only mentioned in TDTCB or is it something I forgot?

Not that the current system needs to be replaced, I actually like the current ranks but I felt I had to contribute something.


Vulgar Rabble  (0) 
Man of the Tusk  (25)
Shrial Knight  (75)
Eothic Guard  (150)
Hundred Pillars  (250)
Faceless One  (500)


I know this list isn't exactly logical since skin spies aren't on the same side but I decided to just do it based on 'ability to kick ass in combat'.  I also tried to avoid troop types specific to one nation, but my guess is the Nansur (Ketyai) will be the most widely represented in the Shrial Knights but since all of the Eothic Guard in TAE are Norsirai I felt that balanced them out.


**If I have remembered anything incorrectly, please let me know but dont make me feel too dumb lol   :P

Girls & guys, how do I ascend my "Consult Fanboy" line from Personal Text to the, ahem, higher place right under the nick? It seems a proper place to ask. :3

The vaunted 'custom forum title slot'. We started giving anyone over 50 posts the opportunity to have one. Bother Madness about it and he'll help you out.
