Ranks and Promotion Protocol

At [RIP] Rusty In Places we use a ranking system for our members which is based on the British Army, although to give us more flexibility we have included a couple of ranks from the same level. Members are promoted through the ranks based on their activity with the community and how long they have been a member. We have a Command Staff system in place for members who have taken on management roles and these members are usually given an officer rank to show their position of responsibility. However, we have members who have been in our clan for a long time and these can also be of an officer rank but are not be part of the Command Staff.

The promotion of a member is decided and granted at different levels depending on what rank they are being promoted too. For the lower ranks, the CO of their company (also known as Game Commander) can grant a promotion, but for higher level ranks, then it must be signed off by either a Field Marshall or sometimes, the Clan Leaders before a promotion is granted.

Listed below are our current ranks and requirements for promotion:

First initial rank as a clan member

All NCO ranks are granted by a Field Marshall and are based upon the individual being active within our community. They should be seen on our servers, in our TeamSpeak and posting on our forums. On the very rare occasion, members who show high levels of activity and commitment can be awarded a promotion sooner than the guidelines listed above. Member with low activity levels may take longer to get promoted than the guidelines listed, this is down to Field Marshall discretion.
 
To be promoted above the rank of PVT, members must have agreed to the "Junior Admin" conditions and be awarded the Junior Admin badge.
Members who are rank Cpl or above must have agreed to "Senior Admin" conditions, have Battlemetrics admin and be awarded the Senior Admin badge.
Members that have been inactive (MIA or On Leave) will have service days reduced by number of days not active.
Returning members will start their time in rank from their rejoin date.

Officer ranks are only given to members who accept a Command Staff position or have been in our community for at least 4 years. Once a member has reached an officer rank, then their promotion is granted by a Clan Leader based on their commitment and merit.
