Oh we updated with some TLW characters too (Adult Orion, Yamabiko, Bill, Zion). Thinking about it reminds me how hard it was to choose characters spanning all the years of Ginga manga we've had now, even though we increased the amounts of rank positions by a lot!

That's a good theory :tfw_sirius3:
We can call it a theory:) You know what, it's probably just a part of the lore behind Ginga and GingaBoard! What is the secret?

Don't take it seriously:)
WELL.

On the previous iteration of GB, popular GNG characters were reserved for admin/mod/special ranks, and regular ranks were GDW characters (topic of old ranks here). The same is still true, except with the huge rank expansion to cover more post milestones (by popular demand) we included GDW:O characters as well.

We just thought it would be fitting for everyone to start off as a baby Gin :)
Ben is the true popular veteran character of the series so the top post rank we made for Tora reaching it could be no-one else :ben:

I think the fact the ranks begin and end on GNG characters wasn't entirely planned... it just ended up that way!
Well, it's still very cool, and I LOVE IT! :)
Have a nice day!

I have been quite active since the 23rd of April. In these past 4 days. I have posted a total of 80 posts, which is quite a lot (This is while not including my 3 posts in the spam forums). This means that I post on average 20 posts per day. Now, let's say that I keep on posting 80 posts in the span of 4 days from now on, I will have the Ben rank in 500 days from now on. That will probably not happen, but if I keep on being active on this website in the next 2 years, I will probably get the Ben rank if I post at least between 10 - 20 times per day. I fun little detail that could be a fun side quest LOL.
That is quite the task! The reason the ranks go up so high is because we kept everyones post count from the old forum which was yeeeaaaars old, which is why a lot of people already have high ranks already. The veteran ben rank was originally a gift to Tora who was the first to reach it on the old board, but she has the Tesshin rank now.
I thought that you kept the posts from people who joined waaayyy back. It looked like they had quite the amount of posts. 1000 is already pretty crazy. But still, this little side quest is pretty cool:) I have 124 posts right now, and I would love to get the Ben rank. It would be pretty cool.
4 weeks since you joined and you've blasted through 500 posts without spamming. I'm 100% invested in your noble quest. :orion3:

I'm trying my best:) But still, I only post if I want to post, or post if I see an opportunity with something I would actually say. I'm not posting for the sake of posting. But I am getting that rank!!!!
Have a nice day!

It is a quest after all:) I'm gonna do my best while only say stuff that I would actually say in real life, or stuff that I could think of saying without lying. If I make posts based on lies, then it doesn't really feel like I have earned any ranks I have gained so far. I'm kinda surprised myself that I have posted so much. I was expecting around 200 posts. But in the end, what really made it possible for me to post so much (without spamming) is because of the fact that people actually reply (sometimes quote) to my topics and replies. If people didn't, I would probably be at 200 posts (my original prediction). So I guess that I can thank everyone here for the fact that I have come so far in such a short time:) I will probably not be able to repeat this success (since the lockdown in Denmark is almost over, so I won't have time to post as much because of school).

BTW, I just looked at my average post count per day, and it's at 16.97... Jesus Christ!
Have a nice day!

What is this “Ginga Guardian Online Newspaper”? Is it something that exists on this board as well?

You can find it near the top of the Old Board. It isn't being continued anymore :)

Sad. It just sounded interesting to me. Oh well, I will check the old one at some point then:)
