Well, I wouldn't say that. They're the only one in this thread so far who has stated that they are in favor of them, but that doesn't make them the only one. I don't think the change would have been made in the first place if that were the case.

I am fairly indifferent on the subject of the new banners, but am leaning slightly towards liking them more than disliking them.

Congratulations as well to gach and clawgrip; you both certainly deserve the honor!

The new rank images somehow messed up the rank system

The rank change is intentional, as I've now increased the postcount requirements of several ranks to reflect the growth of the board! I've updated this topic with more information!

Are the numbers chosen at random or is there some pattern I fail to discern?

Several members have expressed their indifference to these changes. I'd like to differ, as I think it just makes the board a bit more fun.

Also, if you've got Mongolian now (Yes, Mongolian!), can we have Thai, Arabic, Hebrew and Ge'ez too?

A little bit of both. The difference between each number of posts before you get a new rank increases by 50 each time.

E.g.
hieroglyphic>cuneiform = 50 posts
cuneiform>sinic = 125 posts
sinic>greek = 250 posts
greek>roman = 425 posts

125-50 = 75
250-125 = 125
425-250 = 175

Thank you, I appreciate you saying so [:)]

Well, yes, but then we'd need a lot more posts, don't you think? [;)]

At least I have Mongolian to look forward to!

It's not that I dislike the particular size and shape that some rank banners have been changed to… what bugs me personally is that now, not all rank banners are the same size and shape.

This is really just a minor thing, though, and if it's what Aszev wants, I can definitely deal with it.

[+1] : unevenness of shape can really bug me too when you would expect something to be consistent like a rank banner.

I'm pretty sure it's because Aszev is gradually working on replacing all the rank banners but hasn't given up his day job just to make sure OCD sufferersCBBers can sleep at night.
