    I thought I start this topic here, as I feel it is not so easy for all the members to understand how the ranks here on SEWA work.

    Perhaps Erik or one of the Seniors might tell us how the rankings work, how you get a super-user, mod or senior mod, what it means to be a administrator or an ambassador or a general and what you are supposed to do , when you´ve got a certain function.

    Then members might at least know, whom they have to bash :twisted: :wink: !

    Well first off, I don't see why readers should feel they have to bash anyone. As for the ranking system, if Erik ar Mark want to shed light on this, that's fine, but to be honest,it has been told and retold many time. If someone really wants to know, have them look back through the threads and find where it is. It gets a little tiresome having to explain this process just because people out there feel they are being slighted, or ignored. Charis, this is no slight to you, this is just my opinion on this, that's all.

    From BH not long ago.

    administrator: Does exactly that. They hep admin the entire site. Also they help Erik with the Tech side of SEWA. Basically thats PDL. Most of the senior mods also have the power to admin the site.

    ambassador: Someone who goes above and beyond in the game. Whether its by contribution, promotion or tenor.

    ocd Smag: There is only one and you can ask him how he got that ranking LOL.

    Mod rankings: In order ascending

    Superusers S1-S6
    Moderators S1 -S6
    Senior Moderators

    There are some exceptions but the above is generally correct.

    And now make a sticky out of that, Kop, as Wire sugested, best including the link to all the old posts.

    I agree with you, Frank, that it is sometimes tiresome, but as we get luckily new members all the time, it has to be explained from time to time and make it a sticky is no bad idea.
    And I agree with you that there is no need to bash anybody, but you know very well that it happens all the time, though of course there are some as well, who only feel bashed.

    Based on my recent rank changes, and browing the memberlist, I think it's more like:

    Lance Corporal - 25 posts
    Dart Corporal - 75 posts
    Dart Sergeant - 150 posts

    Hubz as you can guess I didn't compile it but instead took it from the threads mentioned.
    You are more then likely correct. I would not be surprised if its actually even more then that. I am sure PDL/ Commandant when they have time will put up a sticky with that info.

    OK here are the latest rankings based on posts only. The more posts, the higher the rank.

    This is just a way of letting you, the user here at SEWA, know who's been around a long time or has been very active on the site. Typically this person (the ones with the highest rank NOT associated with special promotions) is respected becuase of their longevity at the site and they are generally not full of BS ;)

    Private 1
    Private First Class 25
    Lance Corporal 50
    Dart Corporal 75
    Dart Sergeant 150
    Dart Staff Sergeant 300
    Dart Gunny 500
    First Sergeant 1000
    DART SGT. MAJOR 2000
    Gunner 3000
    Chief Gunner 4000
    Chief Gunner 5000
    Darting Weapons Gunner 6000
    Team SEWA Gunner 8500 ***NEW***

    These ranks are based on US Marine Corps ranks becuase I was in the Marine Corps and just happen to be one proud Devil Dog! Ooorah!

    So, all you Snuffy Smiths out there now know what the ranks mean :) The names aren't really important and I just make them up so they are sorta sometimes applicable to the site but I'm not that creative so sometimes just leave them alone.

    The next ranks on the site are for what we call Ambassadors. These are folks out there in the dart world who go out of their way to promote the sport and are well known for it. They are generally people who someone else mentions to the site admins (or we know already) as a real mover and shaker in the darting community and we like to make sure everyone knows them :)

    They get Warrant Officer Ranks as well.

    WO-1 SEWA Ambassador
    WO-2 SEWA Ambassador
    WO-3 SEWA Ambassador
    WO-4 SEWA Ambassador
    WO-5 SEWA Ambassador **NEW**

    Next we have the Top Players (that we know of) whom we try to give rank according to their status as a player. For exmaple a top US dart player might get Colonel rank if he/she is in the Top 25 or General (one star) rank and a special rank name if they are Top 10 or perhaps well known top players who've established themselves.

    Then we have the Pro's -- and these have general rank also (and names like The Iceman or perhaps just General Part.

    Then you have the staff ranks of the Super Users, Moderators, Senior Moderators and Admins. The Super Users start out as 2nd Lieutenants and go up from there. The Moderators start at Captain and go to Major or Colonel (have to check) and their ranks is loosely based on posts and activity -- becuase I tend to forget to promote people). The Senior Moderators start at Colonel and move up to General (one star) or as admins anything from 1 to 3 stars.

    Then there is me :) I started the site and own the site so I get 4 stars :D

    They are either locked and can't post or are removed from the site.

    Note: With the new site ranks have changed. I'm not sure if I'll bring back the old ones or not. For now I'll leave things as is but moving forward it's hard to say what we'll do...
