Responsibilities: They are expected to maintain the very conduct that brought them to this rank. They are active users of the forums. They help advise the Council and Elders on all matters as necessary.

Rank 8 - General: The Generals are below Gman. This rank is populated mostly by people who have shown that they are the most trusted people that n00bfest knows. In some cases, it's an honorary rank that holds no true duties or the prerequisites or obligations that people usually have to go through to climb through the ranks. They're to be respected and thought of as being on equal ground with the HNIC, because they are. Since you can only have one true n00bfest leader, they were put into this rank, the highest rank that anyone can achieve. They are made up of people that created n00bfest and others who have proven to be invaluable to the n00bfest community. These are the Elders and Ancients of the n00bfest community. They will have unrestricted admin available and have shown that they're able to use these abilities wisely. Some of them may wear a tag, some not, it's at their discretion. Most will wear the [n00b] Name * tag if they wish, or not.

Some of the Generals take on this role:

These are people who have the ability to oversee that all n00b rules are being followed. These people are the arbitrators for the community. They are able to speak as the HNIC when he's absent, even above all other ranks. This rank carries all the duties and responsibilities of all the other ranks above. A coveted position indeed if you're a true leader of the people. They oversee the forums and keep faggot spammers from spammity spam spamming the forums. They oversee all other ranks to ensure that everyone is doing their “job”. They are capable of making decisions in the community in the absence of Gman. They have the power to demote, as well as remove, people from n00bfest at their discretion. This is a heavy position to fill indeed, because it involves a lot of time to oversee the above mentioned areas therefore they will not be expected to be active in the game or forums, but are encouraged to participate as time allows.

Rank 9 - n00bfest HNIC: Gman. He is responsible for delegating authority to all other ranks to get tasks done and help to keep things organized. Gman is in charge of the top-level administration of all things n00bfest. Got a problem with the server or site? Got a problem with another member? Report it to Gman; he'll fix it. He fixes everything. Also, he's God.

Finally, a note on ranks. When you enter the server, you're able to see who is wearing the [n00b] tag and what rank they have. For some commands, like map changing, the higher rank will have the final say on the server. If someone of a higher rank asks you to calm down or stfu, do so. Respect everyone, especially those that have obtained a higher rank. n00bfest is a community of fun and camaraderie. We play on the servers together and get to know each other through the games AND the forums. You'll notice that some ranks do not require you to go to the forums, so, if you want to obtain a higher rank, you must participate in the forums to achieve some of those ranks. Forum participation keeps everyone up to date on who is in and who is out, who did this and who did that. It keeps people from having to ask, "What happened to so and so" or "Where is whatshisnuts". Many times, if you take 10-15 minutes checking the forums before you get into game, you'll be able to know this already.

So, regular n00b members have nothing after their names, admin levels are required to wear the following denotation after their names, in short, they are:

Sergeant = [n00b] Name ^
Lieutenant = [n00b] Name '
Captain = [n00b] Name '' or [n00b] Name "
Major = [n00b] Name |
Colonel = [n00b] Name ||
General = [n00b] Name * Or [n00b] Name whatever they want
