List of ranks on SD
« on: January 27, 2021, 12:52:10 PM »
If I understand it correctly, you get your rank (mine is Wachtmeister) based on the number of posts you make on SD. Is that correct? Is there a list of ranks posted somewhere, and how many posts it takes to get there?

Heinrich has a rank of "Hauptman" (Captain)with over 8,000 posts; 
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

This is what I have figured out so far.  Some one else is going to have to fill in the rest.  I didn't know what any of these titles meant until I just now looked them up.  To tell you the truth I'm not too pleased with some of the titles.  For instance, a search for Vizekorporal brings up Schutzmannschaft, which is not just a German army rank, but a Nazi German army rank.  What to heck Kaesekopf? 

Hellebardier - halberd-bearers.  0 to ? posts

Vizekorporal - "protective, or guard units"; collaborationist auxiliary police.  ? to ? posts. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schutzmannschaft

Korporal - the lowest rank of the non-commissioned officers group.  ? to ? posts.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korporal

Wachtmeister - 'watch-master', guard duty.  ? to 1500 posts.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wachtmeister

Feldwebel - "field usher", Staff Sergeant or Sergeant.  1500 to 5000 posts.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feldwebel

Hauptmann - 'head-man', captain.  5000 to ? posts.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hauptmann

Oberst - colonel. or lieutenant colonel.  ? to ? posts.

I merged these two topics.

Kaesekopf wanted the forum ranks to be more meaningful so we settled on the Swiss Guard ranks. Leaving them in German was more authentic.   

The basic rundown is this:

Oberst = Kaesekopf
Oberstleutnant = The moderators
Kaplan = (Vacant unless we get a priest)
Major = 10000+
Hauptmann = 5000-10000
Feldwebel = 1500-5000
Wachtmeister = 500-1500
Korporal = 250-500
Vizekorporal = 100-250
Hellebardier = 0-100
