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!

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

On the old board, Riki was a rank reserved for our member "magazine" account called 'The Ginga Guardian'. This magazine no longer exists so neither does Riki!

Below is a breakdown of all the board ranks and what privileges they have, if any. Gold frames indicate board management, Silver frames are special regular member ranks, Gin-blue are regular member ranks and the black one... you don't want.

All ranks coloured by Kasi.


Admin and Moderator Ranks

ImageImageImage
Admin ranks: Gin, Hakurou and John

Current Administrators: Arano (Root Admin; board owner) Kasi and Crystal.
Administrators manage and make all the final decisions regarding the board and its members.

Image
Moderator Rank: Akame

Current Moderators: Akame
Akame moderates the Fan Board.

Past Moderators: Musica, retired 2019.
Musica moderated the Fan Board and contributed to important Admin decisions. She started on the team by helping Crystal manage the Ginga Guardian online newspaper on the old forum.

Image
Technician Rank: Cross

This is a special rank made for Regnant, who helped considerably with skinning the new forum and has admin level access to all the "backstage" bits and pieces (has no general forum duties). This board wouldn't exist without her help!

Image
RPG Moderator Rank: Kurotora

Current Moderators: Astor and Gingastar.
RPG Moderators manage all aspects of the RPG section.


Special Regular Member Ranks
Ranks that are unique from the regular member ranks, but have no moderator capabilities or general forum duties.

Image
Legend Rank: Tesshin

This rank was a perk purchasable from our 2017 Indiegogo campaign to move the board. It is thanks to the generosity of these members and other backing members (full list in the forum credits) that Ginga Board was able to move from an old broken forum to a new one. This rank is a locked rank and will never be obtainable outside of this campaign.

Image
Translator Rank: Zion

Current holders: Chani, Dragon, fantachan, Kretari and Tsudog
This rank is a special token of thanks to members who have helped keep all our information up to date by bringing Finnish and Japanese translations of Yoshihiro Takahashi's works to the board. This rank is open and obtainable by any member who contributes consistently in this way.


Regular Member Ranks
The set of ranks available to general members that change depending on post count. So far only one member of the board has broken the 10,000 mark...

Newbie: Pup Gin [0] > Recruit: Andy [50] > Potential: Bon [100] > Rookie: Kotetsu [200] > Friend: Sasuke [350]
ImageImageImageImageImage

Comrade: Kagetora [500] > Prodigy: Rigel [650] > Seasoned: George/Jouji [800] > Mentor: Sirius [1,000] > Upholder: Izou [1,250]
ImageImageImageImageImage

Fighter: Kyoushirou [1,550] > Soldier: Lydia [1,900] > Adviser: Yamabiko [2,300] > Defender: Rocket [2,800] > Champion: Orion [3,400]
ImageImageImageImageImage

Warrior: Jerome [4,200] > Victor: Yukimura [5,100] > Hero: Joe [6,000] > Supreme: Weed [8,000] > Veteran: Ben [10,000]
ImageImageImageImageImage


Unlucky Ranks

Image

This rank indicates the user is in a restricted access group. The administrators may choose to place a user in a custom restricted access if they are struggling to use the board correctly within the board rules.

Image
Banned: Hougen
This rank indicates the user has been banned from the forum.

It's based off of post count. You can see your post count under your name or in your profile :)
