    The mods decide who gets a rank, when, and what rank. Generally the seniors are given custom ranks (usually still with the "Senior" part intact) and members who have donated to OCForums in the past before iNet took over or who have contributed to the forums in a big way.

    This is not a thread for requesting ranks.

    Thanks JoT (assuming that was the smartypants mod involved in my rank assassination ).

    Someone should change PCGUY's to Fruit of the Loins or something to that effect. lol

    Any mod or admin can change a rank, but they only do it at their own discretion. Seniors are the only members who can actually request a rank change.

    We have thousands of members. It would be a pain for mods and admins to constantly be changing ranks for everyone.

    A while back when we were collecting donations for bandwidth, you could get a custom rank if you donated $x to bandwidth.

    I'm sure anyone could bribe a mod or admin to give them a custom rank... then they might discover some free time to do it .

    Ranks are also decided on a prank by prank basis (points at own title).
