Can we add two new rank tags?



Best Answer Tefka, 07 August 2018 - 11:02 PM

I do not believe a "Darksider"/"Lightsider" addition to our rank titles is necessary, nor will I approve it. I'm pretty open to most things, but I think the dumbing down of Star Wars for just another neat "graphic" is not only in bad taste but also undermines the complexity of the environment in which we role-play. The world is not black and white, nor is our Galaxy.

 

You're free to vote for this in any Contest Staff holds, but it's going to fail when it gets to me. 'cause I'm mean like that.

We have a bunch of lovely rank tags on the site. However, with my recent exploration in my character's story, I think there are two tags that would be beneficial to have, the first being a "Darksider" and the second being "Lightsider".

 

The current ranks are for very specific sects within both of these, but someone who wants something more general is out of luck. The neutral tag ("Force Sensitive") implies more lack of training and neutrality.

 

Would this be possible?

 

If so, I would be more than happy to bug people who do graphics to get it done :)

This... Genuinely seems like a great idea. I've had instances where Jedi and Sith/Dark Jedi didn't make sense even though they were the closest alignment wise, and the more neutral ones don't reflect the fact that they're not, well, neutral. Though if it can't be done just yet, you could always submit it when the next Rank Title Competition happens Scherezade deWinter :D

Rhia Kesyk That's also a great idea :) Is there a schedule to when these go up? If it's soon enough I can just remove this question and wait.

I don't believe so, there was one somewhat recently though so it might not be for a while. Still something to keep in mind, and you can always throw a rank title pertaining to Lightside vs Darkside in your signature in the meantime, gives you chance to play around with styles too

Rhia Kesyk That's true, but if it's possible to get it in the rank tags, I'd prefer that :)

Something more specific about alignment would be amazing for rank tags ^_^

Jahan the Lion It's not "acolyte" or "padawan", it's "Sith Acolyte" and "Jedi Padawan". There's more in the Darkside than the Sith, there's more in the Lightside than Jedi. These two words, Sith and Jedi, describe a very specific religion/attitude/cult/etc, on a place where most of us are nitpicky nerds :)

They do a rank tag call once a year, usually. Won't be another until next year.

There are ones for Force Adept, Force Knight and Force Master as well.

I have no doubt these will make two great new additions to the tags the next time Staff decides to do a recruitment for them. Nice. :)

Kind of off-topic, but I have noticed that certain winning tags from this year's rank tag contest still have not been added to the system.

Keep an eye out for the next competition and submit them when that happens.

As Kaalia Pavanos says here, you guys still need to add some rank tags that were approved in the last contest.

Do you know when that's supposed to happen, more or less?

This would be awesome and it's kind of surprising it hasn't been suggested or done already lol.

 

Fully in support of the suggestion! #TeamLightside

 

Also, it'd be great to have the neutral Apprentice tag fixed.
