Hi,
first I want to clarify that I know that a forum rank doens't say much about the skills of user and that I know that this "ranking system" is more kind of fun than serious, but obviously you (the administrators) have fun with these titles too, otherwise you wouldn't have created them. Moreover I don't take this post very seriously and I'm not offended if you ignore me or disagree with me, so lets begin:

I've googled a bit and found this thread:
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-24074.html

IMO the rank guru comes too soon, because a guru is as far as I know some kind of leader or enlightened person. And I don't like this title because it reminds me of sects. :)
So I suggest a title like kernel (as a hint to the military rank), arbitrator (from warhammer :) ), mentor or captain (from starcraft) or maybe monk, (as a "spiritual" replacement for guru)

a more important change should be the replacement of the title advocate, because who want to be an advocate ? :P (I've seen a few user with this title that have quotes as "what the hell am I advocating" in their profile, so maybe I'm not the only one)
it could be replaced with general, high templar :) or agent.

Moreover the title veteran comes maybe a bit to soon, because it's something that you are at the end, isn't it?

But sects should remind you of homosexuality. Get it? But sects? :P

I think the forum ranks should all be derogatory (to a lesser and lesser degree, as you advance in worthiness). For example,
Gape-Mouthed Moron
Bumbling Idiot
Feckless Dunce
etc.

good point, like Full Metal Jacket:

You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human fucking beings. You are nothing but unorganized grab-asstic pieces of amphibian shit! ...
:D

But I think your suggestion has an even lesser change to get adopted then mine... :wink:
