Newborn= 0-100
Pup= 101
Yearling=300
Dispersal Wolf= 650
Pack Member = 860
Pack Leader= 6000+
I agree with SH, but, maybe swap dispersal and pack member? I mean you have to be a pack member before being a dispersal right? XD
not when joining a new pack.

Yeah, but I'm looking at it realistically. XD as if you were a wolf. You are ina pack when you are a pup, you are in a pack when you are a yearling, and most dispersal wolves make their own packs, not join one. I'm just thinking it in a realistic way. Just my opinion.
I like discussing deep things, playing video games, and mentally torturing myself by studying C# even though I'm not a math person.

Keep in mind that scout, hunter, etc., are silly roleplay terms. I enjoy the ranks we have, but adding on to them would be great, other than changing them completely. I don't really have any ideas for the ranks, though.

only thing is the later ranks people simetimes get confused and think people are actually what the rank describes.


I think that perhaps some ranks at 25,000 and 30,000 posts should be added, though I do not have any ideas for actual names.
I'm with Blindseer, I like the ranks, other than the fact that newer members misinterpret what it actually means.

Maybe you could pick at the begginning which path you take, human or wolf? On you profile page i mean. someone would have to come up with other human things to make the full sequence though... :?
90% of teenage girls would die if the Jonas Brothers jumped off a 20 story building. If your in the 10% that would get a chair and popcorn and say "Do a flip!" pass this on.

I support the anti-twighlight movement!

Great ideas! maybe swop around master hunter and novice leader? Because ppl may get confused if they see theyve gone from some kind of pack leader to hunter and they will think they have gone down a rank

i think we should definatly have newborn, everyone seems so keen on it :)

Good idea;
Newborn: 0-40
Pup:40-100
Aging Pup:100-300
Yearling:300-900
Older Yearling:900-1,500
Adult Wolf:1,500-3,000
Dispersal Wolf:3,000-5,000
New Pack Member:5,000-7,000
Pack Member:8,000-11,000
Senior Pack Member:11,000-14,000
Skilled Hunter:14,000-19,000
Master Hunter:19,000-22,000
Novice Pack Leader:22,000-27,000
Experienced Pack Leader:27,000-32,000
Senior Pack Leader:32,000+


Added another rank; Aging Pup. Seemed to leave a gap between Pup and Novice Hunter and something needed to fill it that represented growth or growing.

Sintact, "Master", sounds good to me for the second-to-last one.


edit: I'm going to try to add some more; the number of posts required seem to jump around a bit.
edit#2: Added more!

I like yours, Koa. Experienced Pack Leader sounds better that 'Master..' in my opinion.

I agree with that.

Alright, I sent a summary of your ideas in to one of our wolf experts, and hopefully she'll get back to me as far as if anything is unrealistic or in an incorrect order. I also asked her to add any other ranks that she knows of in real wolf packs. So once she writes back, I'll put up a poll, where you all can vote on what should/shouldn't be included, and how many posts are needed to acquire each rank. Thanks for all the great ideas!
