Website Updates and News
 Same content, different outfit... But I swear, I had no idea it was going to be semi-transparent! Honest!

Links page has been split up into smaller sections, including: Premium, Guest, Forum, SIMM, Misc., Bravo Fleet and Alpha Fleet. Some new links have been added while some dead links have been removed.
 Short and sweet, but I did bake cookies!

Dress Style #3 is finished and up on the website now. Feel free to look it up under the Ranks page.

On another note, I noticed that the main page now has over 40,000 hits. Congratulations to the many people who checked out my main page instead of just skipping to the Ranks page.

 "The Infamous 17-Day-Later Update"... I just wish I knew what was so infamous about it!

Some time later and some work done on the site, including the following stuff:

- Alternate Style Rankset, circa 2485 is now up on the site. Scroll towards the bottom of the page to find the Alternate Style ranksets. Stefan put in a request for this set and asked it be posted on the site.
- Sailor Moon ranksets are now available on the website. I can now safe with considerable certainty that Kuro-RPG is not an "Sci-fi" only website, as we have something that has absolutely nothing to do with military or sci-fi ranks! I am rather quite proud of how they turned out as this project was a TON of work. Research was brutal, never mind trying to create a special image for every single rank made. I have not had such a difficult project to work on in such a long time, but the first half of the results are online and available for download. The second half (The 120x size) should be available sometime down the road.
- Four more donations to Kuro-RPG, coming from loyal members (In chronological order): Fedhog, Stephen Clark, Emily Hamilton, and Artemis Xavier Farr. I think we are getting closer to our forum upgrade!
- Contact information for Kuro-chan has been updated. Please see the Information Page for details.
- Information Page has been re-worked to account for the critical team members that help make Kuro-RPG a success. New entries include Mike Mendez and Fedhog.

I would also like to take a chance to briefly promote forum member Kevin's project on Star Trek Expanded Universe Wiki, a fanon project. Check out the rank project especially, for he has worked like hell to make this work. It stunned the hell out of me when I realized I truly have no life as I have made so many rank images... O.o ...

 I made a boo-boo...

I forgot to update the Links page when I did my last update, so that is up, along with a cleanup of working links. I think I removed about 4 or 5 and put up another 3 since then.
 I know I know... I have not wrote anything recent... so shoot me...

There have been a lot of fun updates on the site. Mostly oddball things, but any and all oddball things amounts for fun, true?

- Information and Links pages have both received considerable updates. However, the Information page is not finished and should have some more information added soon. As for the Links page, well... It's NEVER done! Heh.
- Lilredhead of Enterprise Flashed now has a section on Kuro-RPG containing his work with E:F. We have added 4 episodes and 2 specials, all of them worth watching.
- Hadouken_Dude is up with his latest flash project: Four Swords Misadvantures #3. This was absolutely hilarious and exciting to watch when I saw it, so I dare you, the fans and browsers of Kuro-RPG to check it out in the Guest Flash section. Once again, the site got special mention in the credits! (Does happy little victory dance in some random corner where everyone can hear me, but no one can see...)
- We had forum troubles yesterday, but those have been cleaned up, and everything is working again.

- Also, if you have a chance to, please check out USS Pharaoh. This is a long-term project which looks VERY interesting. An impressive project for Trek fans.

 The Update page got an update!

With new colors, new siggies and new opportunities for me to complain about the world and how much work ranksets can be at times... Well, here I am and here it is!
- ENT Rankset page has been fixed. It no longer opens up a new page for rankset viewing and the one "Admiral" page was fixed too.
- A new Romulan rankset can also be found on the site. The pips were re-designed to suit the needs of an approved client... Just don't ask about the one extra rank. It was not my idea...
 We have Battlestar Galactica Ranks!
Posted by Kuro-chan - September 24th, 2006
No really! I seriously mean it! Kuro-RPG DOES have BSG ranks. Click right here if you don't believe me. Or you could click here, here, or even here if you still do not... I am not kidding at all!

Actually, a lot should be on this post, given how there was a considerable number of updates since the last time I posted. To start with, the Rankset contest is over and we have winners (But no losers, since there were not enough people to enter for there to be a loser... therefore, everyone is a winner, just like life)! ... The winners of the Advanced Hall competition already have their entires up on the site. I am waiting on some content from the Beginners Hall before I can post their stuff.
- Battlestar Galactica ranks are up. I am absolutely serious when I say they are up.
- Hanaukyo Maid Tai ranks are up now. Beware though, as this is not your average Klingon rankset. To cross your fingers and prepare for the worst, click here.

Also, we are still looking at trying to do a security update for the forum. This project has not been forgotten, but just not been quite as important lately. If you wish to see this site's forum survive and be open to as many members as we can somehow register, feel free to contribute to this quaint cause. The demonstration of your apprecation for the site is always a welcome one.

Just a couple things to mention:

- Hadouken_dude's latest Flash movie is on the site: Four Swords Misadventures #1 Remake! It's like the first movie, only better!
- A Rankset competition has been introduced to the forum. To enter and vote, you need to be a registered member of Kuro-RPG

It has been two weeks since the last update... That must mean I am actually updating...? Gah! What am I doing?! What am I doing?! I am upd-- ... oh wait... I am SUPPOSED to be updating... Okie okie, self-panic attack is over. I can get back to actually discussing WHAT kind of update this is:

- Movie Era ranks got a considerable boost with over 1,000 new ranks. There is now a second section called the "Movie Era Sleeves" which focuses on other part of the Movie Era uniform. I know there are still a few things missing, like some of the enlisted sleeves and the service pips, but that will be taken care of soon enough.
- DS9 Era, Duty Style #2, Dress Style #1 and #2, Alternate Style #1 and the Line Template all received a special service today. As of today, they all have Ambassador ranks. Unlike the Future Era and Alternate Style 2 sets, however, these are single-rank sections, and should be handled accordingly. I do not plan to expand these ranks as it was hard enough to get the Ambassador pip to look good.
- The update page now includes a random selection of banners linking to some premium and established sites showing the best in artists and trek-lovers combined.
- TNG rankset has been updated to properly work on the site and has been expanded to include the full run of enlisted, warrant and provisional ranks. I still only plan to have 3 department colors, however. The ranksets which still need a run-through are ENT, TOS, TMP, and Future Era.

And just to scare me that little bit more... I did another rank count. There are currently 17,199 available ranks on the site.
