From Rebel Commander Twitchy543:
Pretty awkward that this is my first post returning to the leadership of the Rebel Federation (for the fifth time…), but that’s neither here or there. We have something to discuss, and that is the ranking system.
Back when the Rebel Federation was using xat, the ranking system was much smaller, and divided into only three categories in order to reflect the roles on xat: owners, moderators, and members. Members could only talk. Moderators could only kick, and ban for up to 6 hours. Owners could do everything moderators could, except they could ban forever.
When the Rebel Federation moved to Discord, we simply changed the names of some of these categories. Owners became known as the High Command, moderators became known as Officers, and members became known as, well, troops I guess… we never really made an official name for them.
I was the one who advocated for moving the Rebel Federation to Discord (obligatory notice of my narcissism), and one of the reasons I did that is because I believed that we should break away from the simplistic owner/moderator/member categories that we used on xat. The problem is when we did move to Discord, we kept using relatively the same system that xat offered.
So instead, I would like to suggest a new system as follows:
The image above displays the permissions on the Discord server that each rank has, along with the current ranking system on the left, and the proposed new ranking system on the right to compare to.
I’ve been discussing this system thoroughly with the High Command, the Officers, my advisors… everyone, but we can’t seem to come to a thorough conclusion. So with that being said, I would like to hear from you: the troops.
Please vote on the poll below AND comment the following: your name, your rank, and your opinion on the proposed new system.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The results of this poll and comments below do not determine what will happen. This is for myself, the High Command, the Officers, and the Advisors to review so we can see what you, the troops, want, and help us to better formulate our opinions so that we can decide on what the best option for you will be.
We look forward to hearing from you guys!
Fight the good fight.
