Destiny-fying user levels[edit]

Right now, Destinypedia's user level system uses ranks taken from Halo, specifically from Halo 4's multiplayer progression (I think, it's been a while since I played). These ranks don't really fit in with Destiny's theme, and I thought it was time for a change. I settled on a series of ranks based on the enemy titles and general hierarchy of the Fallen, since Destiny lore doesn't provide us with anything else that would fit (Hive, Vex, and Cabal have fewer titles among them and their hierarchies are far less defined, and the Guardians don't have any rank system at all). The current 18 ranks we have would translate into the following Fallen ranks, in order from lowest to highest:

  1. Dreg (Aspect of Blood)
  2. Reaver Dreg (Officer Crest)
  3. Archon Servant (Rune of the Disciple)
  4. Vandal (The Rising)
  5. Elder Vandal (The Rising Night)
  6. Reaver Vandal (Bomb Squad II)
  7. Stealth Vandal (Dragoon)
  8. Kell's Guard (Command II)
  9. Captain (Born of Fire)
  10. Elder Captain (Shield of the Knight)
  11. Noble Captain (Shield of the Warlord)
  12. Reaver Captain (Pathfinder Sign)
  13. House Enforcer (Honor of Blades)
  14. Baron (The Inner Circle)
  15. Archon Rising (Blessing of the Gifted)
  16. Archon (Blessing of the Zealot)
  17. Kell (Firm Decree)
  18. Kell of Kells (Kellbreaker)

The links next to the ranks are the Emblems that would replace the current Halo insignia. Fallen ranks don't have accompnying insignia, so I thought Emblems of appropriate rarity and coolness would do. Opinions? MorningWalker (talk) 19:37, 27 August 2015 (EDT)

Halopedia's user levels are actually based off (sort of) Halo 3's multiplayer, as the wiki began using the system in 2008. It would definitely make sense to change the names here though. Only Steve would be able to change the ranks as it requires dev access. This page provides an explanation on how to change the names.--Spartacus TalkContribs 23:27, 27 August 2015 (EDT)
Great idea! I'll update the names within the system. --Porplemontage (talk) 11:22, 28 August 2015 (EDT)
I went ahead and started updating the page. All that's needed is to upload the image for each "rank".--Spartacus TalkContribs 14:46, 28 August 2015 (EDT)
Thanks. I can take care of the images. MorningWalker (talk) 14:47, 28 August 2015 (EDT)
Looks pretty. :P --Spartacus Talk 15:25, 28 August 2015 (EDT)
Now if I can just steel myself to upload all of the remaining Emblem and Shader images... Copy, paste, type, scroll down, click, repeat. MorningWalker (talk) 15:35, 28 August 2015 (EDT)
