Offline more than 30 days (without reason) = KICK!
Right this is just an idea that hasn't really worked out in practice, but I thought maybe we could have a Roman-style flavour to the ranks, based on our good leader, Constant. However most of the Roman honours look awful written down, but here is an attempt at seeing how this might work
1. Capite censi (head count, those Romans who had nothing but themselves) 2. Plebeian 3. Legionary 4. Centurion 5. Tribune 6. Quaestor 7. Legate 8. Praetor 9. Consul 10. Imperator
I have horribly mixed and matched here and I don't think it has worked on any level, but well, it is just an idea that would at least be different, though incredibly difficult to understand for those that don't know Roman history or Latin well.
Actually i was thinking about roman-inspired ranks too, but as you said, 90% of ppl will probably have no idea what they means, so i went with Imwens idea, till we start history lectures events for whole guild
newcom(m)er=is spelt wrong, and I would suggest Rookie, Greenhorn, Novice, Neophyte, Fledgling or just combining with Initiate. 5 days isn't very long. clerk= a bit dull, I would suggest Guard, Footsoldier paladin= I hate paladins, don't know why just do. Thought I would share that, don't really have any suggestions as I'm not entirely sure what the special rank is for.
I suppose I should have put some input into this before now, but there you go. Just thought I would look I was busy with guild stuff, lol.
