Creating new ranks


#1

How can I create new ranks such as co-owner or lizard king?

There is no way to create new trust levels at this time. We did have plans to make them rename-able.

The best I can think would be Titles, but they’re pretty limited and don’t grant any powers (except in special use cases). They also really can’t be called “ranks.”

Here’s an example:

To set this, you’re going to want to go to your Admin panel and select the Users tab. From there, choose the user you want to apply the Title to.

Select “Edit Title” and type in whatever you want. Then, hit Save Title.

Titles are all about the swag. “co-owner” and “lizard king” 100% fit in there.

Agreed.

Maybe custom Badges could work as well. And you could make them usable as Titles.
If you set it up correctly it would save from needing to go into the ACP and modifying Titles all the time.

The only thing missing would be that the “ranks” would have no “special powers” if that’s what the thought behind this is about.
