Topic: title vs rank
Did a quick search and didn't find any previous discussion on this topic.
Now, aren't there anyone who have thought of separating title from rank so its not like you have to choose one of them? I as a administrator would also like to be part of the ranking system too .
Separating the two is also quite practical if you choose a ranking system that is adjacent with (static) titles which might otherwise confuse other forum users.
For instance, if I have a forum for a church. I might choose a ranking system that goes like: Novice, Reader, Deacon, Postulant, Priest, Curate, Chaplain, Rector, etc.... If there now is a member which actually is a reverant. Then people might think he's part of the ranking system, which is not a very good idea. One way to solve this is to introduce a prefix "rank: " for every rank in the list (or make a mod, which I presume is tedious in this case, since the ranking/title system affects/are affected by permission settings etc).
When having these two systems separated you could let the forum-script ignore writing out a title if not title is set for a given person.

I think this should be a inherent part of punBB and not a mod IMHO.
However, many were excited and some may have enjoyed the experience.
