Hello everyone!

I wanted to introduce our rank system with a little background information about each rank. Hope you enjoy!

 

Associates: Below 50 Post rank0.gif

Associates are not actual members of the Mafia but rather anyone who teams up with them on a criminal enterprise of some kind. They could be someone who does business with the mob, including money-laundering bankers, crooked cops, lawyers, politicians, drug dealers, etc. There are also the Italian newcomers who have yet to be made, called cugines, and they play a minor role in the operation of the Mafia.

 

Soldiers 50 Post Minimum rank1.gif

The lowest-ranking members of the hierarchy of the Mafia and La Cosa Nostra are the soldiers, the grunts of the organization who do the majority of the ââ¬Ådirty work.ââ¬Â Itââ¬â¢s the place where the kids start off: running errands, making deliveries, picking up cash, and generally sticking out their neck in the hope of making a name for themselves by demonstrating their loyalty to the organization.  

 

Capo 150 Post Minimum rank2.gif

The capo, or caporegime, is the captain or lieutenant of a division within the Mafia. He heads a crew of soldiers and reports directly to a boss or underboss, who hands down the instructions. He ranks much higher in the hierarchy of the Mafia.

 

Consigliere 250 Post Minimum rank3.gif

The consigliere, or chief advisor, is not officially part of the hierarchy of the Mafia, but he plays one of the most important roles in a crime family. He is the close trusted friend and confidant of the family boss. The function of the consigliere is a throwback to medieval times, when a monarch placed his trust in an advisor whom he could summon for strategic information and sound advice. The consigliere is meant to offer unbiased information based on what he sees as best for the family. Heââ¬â¢s not supposed to factor emotional concerns, such as retaliation and blood feuds, into his decisions. Unlike the underboss (see below), the consigliere is not required to be a direct relative of the boss. Instead, he is chosen solely for his abilities and the amount of knowledge he possesses. Generally, only the boss and underboss have more authority than the consigliere in an organized crime family.

 

Underboss 400 Post Minimum rank4.gif

The underboss, or capo bastone, is second-in-command in the hierarchy of the Mafia crime family. His level of authority varies from family to family, but he is ready to stand in for the boss at any given moment. In the violent and volatile world of the mob, the underboss can easily find himself at the helm of the family so, for the most part, they are usually groomed for an eventual takeover, particularly if the bossââ¬â¢s health is failing or if it looks like heââ¬â¢s headed for a stay in the joint.

 

Boss1000 Post Minimum rank5.gif

The boss, or capo famiglia, makes all the important decisions, much like a CEO of a company would. Although each mob boss may run his outfit in a different way, they have one thing in common: they are greatly respected and widely feared by their subordinates. All of the men in his outfit pay him a tribute, so he is also usually an extremely wealthy man.

nice to have the old rank system back' date=' the legend will be like before the color for wich rank?[/quote']

 

Hi Scaletta,

I don't quite understand the question. Could you elaborate a little? The usernames will not have a color change at this time. I plan to implement that a little later. For now, the rank images is what I have created. Hope that is the answer for the question.

No worries friend. At this time, no different color. It is something I will put into place later.

I think we should separate the colors of 2 groups: Site Staff and Moderator, because they're the same.

 

What do you think ? ;)

You mean the rank image color or the legend color at the bottom of the forum?
