    Sounds more like a jobs system. This is minecraft, not Final Fantasy 4. Titles and Ranks have proven to be unsuccessful on this server. The current title system (minimal at best) should stay the way it is.

    I understand that people will always attempt to stratify and differentiate between themselves.

    In a game like minecraft, where anyone can do anything, titles feel a bit like pigeon-holing people into roles.

    I mean, on the UK server, I do a lot of crop farming, and its mostly experimental in nature, but I'm in no way a farmer. I also enjoy digging, but I wouldn't be a miner.

    The main issue is that groups have a natural tendency to look down on other groups, particularly if there is some visible way to differentiate them. It's a sad fact, but I assumed gaming was inclusive of race, class, colour, creed and politics, save for not being a total **** (Wheaton's Law).

    If something like this was put in place, elitists would rise to the top and start making the place not a fun place to be.

    Just my 2c, but something to have a ponder about, at least...

    Problem with that many classes comes to managing, mods have other things to do than walk around approve buildings, evaluate what you do, and determine that you fit into certain classes. I also suspect some players constantly wants to change their class.

    Those titles also clutter up chat, we want least possible tags on players other than the vital info.

    We toyed with a similar idea on the UK server, having [Guest], [Builder], [Admin] prefixes and so on but to be honest it got annoying quickly. We found it was cleaner and easier to read when we just used different coloured names for the various ranks and players could still easily identify who was what.

    If anything, from what I remember of Towny, you should be aiming away from that. The names under that system were a mess.
