Some good points have been raised over the course of the past few months. We might have rushed the opening a bit, not to mention things have slipped through the cracks here and there. I may have even approved things that shouldn't have been approved because I'm way too nice and trusted people not to abuse. *cough*
However, that isn't fair. It's not fair that some of you can't have the positions you deserve because others have had special treatment in the past. I thought that since we had already been up for so long, making major changes would destroy the site. I thought that maybe I should close this one, because these mistakes have been bugging me for months, and every time someone pointed them out, I got angry. I was more angry at myself for causing them. I can't really blame others for pointing this stuff out. But I forgot what a great member base we have. Some people may find it necessary to leave over this. But I know that most will stick by us, and that's all that matters.
So, I'm going to have to ask you all to bear with me over the next couple of days or so. Not only will I be making some changes to the system itself, I will be reevaluating profiles. Some of you will lose characters. Well, you can keep the character, but their rank/class/level may be revoked or changed. RP sample and history will be taken into consideration as I do this. If the only thing keeping you from keeping your rank is your history, you will be given a chance to revise it. If it's that your RP sample itself isn't up to par, I'm afraid you will be given a new class/level. If there's another rank you want to obtain with the level you're given, you can do so. Also, increases in level are a possibility, though I don't think they'll be frequent. Only high positions will be graded in this manner.
Also, a new rule is being set in motion. Any one member can have only 2 high positions. High positions count as Sins, Obelisks, Captains, Espada, and Espada Second in Command. Faction leaders don't count, since they're a staff thing, practically NPC. If you have 3 or more of these spots, you will have to drop down to 2. Please PM me the ranks you are dropping ASAP.
I will also be making a new rule about Visoreds. Many people have stated interest in transitioning from Shinigami to Visored. Unfortunately, that is not possible without the Hogyouku. I'm afraid that if you want a Visored, you will have to start as one. If it's the Hollowfication plots you want, there's nothing wrong with starting at a lower level.
Like I said, please bear with me. I'll be trying to make this as easy as possible, and with everyone's cooperation, it shouldn't take long. I ask that if you have any concerns, they be taken directly to myself through PM.
Shortly, I plan to post a list of characters that need revision/class changes here in another comment. So please pay attention.
