Ranks of OC.net users

I've recently been promoted to Taxiarches.  So, if we went to war, what would be the chain of command?  Who would be in charge and who would the subordinates be?  How many of each rank do we have?  Just curious.

I could start making a count of who ranks above you, since that is the easier task. As far as the chain of command, you might be able to figure it out from the link below (look for GiC's post).


Forum members,

With great joy, I have the privilege to announce to all who read this message that, in response to requests to have OC.net posting titles beyond that of Archon, we have implemented a new and expanded system to keep up with our frequent posters!

We've readjusted the order of the titles as per GiC's suggestion:

Wow!

I just realized I have reached the rank of Hoplitarch!

Hoplitarch -  the supreme commander of the infantry of a standing army or the head of the footsoldiers of a vast region of the empire.

I'm going to pull out my knitting basket now...and have the infantry start crocheting blankets.  :D
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

For 14000 posts you can be a cavalry commander. Cool!

The head of the oc.net hierarchy looks like this:

ialmisry - Exarchos Superior, in charge of political ramblings and visual aids (specializing in maps)
PeterTheAleut - Exarchos in Training, in charge of daily moderator terrorizing (specializing in logical fallacies)
Asteriktos - Domestikos ton Scholon, in charge of being strange (jack of all trades, master of less than a hundred)

I'm less than a thousand posts away from a promotion to Megas Domestikos.

Amen!
Anyhow, the idea of ranks for non-moderators is funny. What do they even mean?

Well if we told you it'd hardly be a secret society, now would it?

Is * the highest ranked member?

No, there are a couple ahead of me, and I'd think that mods/admins are going to have a higher rank regardless of number of posts. Fwiw...

Seems like the rank of Exarchos has been discontinued.

Every army needs grunts. But keep your wits about you and you may receive a battlefield promotion. We're always looking for a few good armchair theologians!
