Why would we do that? This is Tau Online.

I dont get what the Tau ranks are either but as stated this is Tau online. Theres no point to it. If it the Imperial Guard online then it would be suitable.

Yup, TO's already made it clear that he want sto keep Tau Online as the 'best tau forum around' so rather than turning it towards something like 40k online etc. It is logical to keep tau stuff around the site.

I agree. This is Tau-Online so Tau rankings make more sense.

Well I have an Imperial ranking :P, so you have to get +25 Karma (or at least quite a lot) or become a GMod if you want a custom title so you can make your own.

As the others have said this is Tau Online, most of the players here are Tau. Therefore the Tau ranks would be most popular.

Trust me on this one, it's not worth it. You get a shiney little name plate, and then you get paranoid... very paranoid... ver very paranoid.... wibble bibble flibble, they're all out to get me nYAAAAGH!

Ahem. Sorry *puts P90 down*

Seriously, being a Gmod's probably more hassle that anything special and you really do get a little paranoid about wether or not people are just saying things becuase they think you'll nail thier ears to the wall if they say otherwise, and on the name things, perhaps some day when the summer comes, some alternative could appear... like maybe 'Tau' 'Non-tau' user groups, and you select which you wish to be upon joining if you dislike the default rankings, and those other rankings could be stuff such like...
1st rank: Kroot Warrior becomes Private 3rd class
2nd rank: Kroot Shaper becomes Private 2nd Class
3rd rank: Shas'la becomes Private 1st Class
4th rank: Shas'ui becomes Lance Corporal
5th rank: Shas'vre becomes Corporal
6th rank: Shas'el becomes Sergeant
7th rank: Shas'o becomes Staff Sergeant
8th rank: Ethereal becomes Sergeant Major

Note they're all either privates or NCO's. No Commisioned officers. Stick with the Tau Empire, and you get a higher rank! Technically...
Still, I have no idea if A) such a plan would work, B) if such a plan would have support, or C) how to implement such a plan!

Nontheless, I think we should maybe keep the idea open in case it becomes too desired by the gue'vesa to get their own special rankings. Of course, the trouble is, the mods are then technically your offciers and might get some sort of power rush and so STAND UP STRAIGHT YOU 'ORRIBLE LITTLE MAN! SHINE YOUR BOOTS BEFORE YOU COME OUT ON PARADE! *sniff sniff* DID NONE OF YOU HAVE A SHOWER THIS MORNING? GOOD! RUN TO CREDENHILL, NICK THE TELLY OFF THE SAS AND GET BACK HERE ON THE DOUBLE! Quiiick MARCH!
