Website Updates and News
Posted by Kuro-chan - March 5th, 2006
I can't think of a better quote than the one that is currently listed just below the semi-non-fancy rank bar, so I'll stick with what is there... Even though the quote is getting rather old...

There are a couple updates today, one relating to the forum and one relating to the website (And I imagine for Kuro-RPG regulars why you would be linked to the index page and not to the ranks page is so that you can help raise the counter located at the very bottom of this page, but also to view these wonderfully bad writeups the combined power of my blabber mouth and my non-nimble fingers loooove to create).

- Forums are now using a new rankset.
- A special "Guest" section has been added to the main Ranks page. In addition, Shawn Terry's "Black Ops." set is now included.

I was told I wrote all my pevious dates in 2006 as 2005. That has now been fixed. Thanks, Jane (As in former Kuro-RPG admin Jane).

Despite continuous harassment from different people today (Yes, more than one person was involved), I managed to pull off one small update. Eventually I just had to shut off MSN for the day, because enough was enough.

- Bajoran ranks are now listed on the website. I figure they are going to get as much fixing as possible. If I try to fix the "white dot" problem anymore, it will end up not looking any different than a Major pip...

Ah, the joys and pains of another update. I think this one is more solid than the last one, however, as there are some actual rank images going up, and yes... lo and behold, they are NEW ONES!!! RAARRR!!!

- Updates for TOS and TMP ranks. There are new sleeve designs. TMP Shoulder ranks will remain unchanged, as I am still fairly satisfied with those results.
- Bajoran ranksets have not seen much coverage on the forums yet, so I will wait a little longer before posting them online.

I know it has been some time since the last time I was annoying on this page, but it is hard to say what kind of changes have happened at Kuro-RPG. Most of it feels the same, while at the same time most of it feels different somehow.

- DS9 Duty has been completely remade to cover a full range of ranks for 17 different department colors (Including updates in the Provisional Ranks section). I suggest you do not ask for any more department colors, since this project has come to the point where any kind of update is now long and tedious because of how much work has to go into every single section. The remaining ranksets have yet to be fully updated. Stay tuned for those changes.
- Bajoran ranksets are up on the forums for review before they become available on the website. There have already been some suggestions on how to improve on them, so I doubt the version on the forum is the final set.
- Following a strange idea, Kuro-RPG is the unexpected host in "Clone Army Kombat" where 32 of my avatars in different battle classes face off against each other. Forum members can vote on the winners.

A critical update in the Information Page has been posted. This concerns artists who plan to use my ranksets as a referrence point for their own sets. I just spent today dealing with a very serious misunderstanding involving another rank maker, since he was using my sets as a base point and the end results made me suspect he was ripping them instead. In addition, if you plan to use them in such a way, please don't leave a post at the forum. Instead email my address

Thank you.

Gah! Bad me! Bad me! I forgot to update the update page last night after updating more of the website.

- I found an old template that somehow got lost amongst the updates, the Line Template. That has been restored and re-posted on the site.
- Cream Rank Background added to the DS9 Duty Uniform, along with a complete rankset. Bravo Fleet was asking for that specific color.

Whee! The evil week of depression is over for now, so I can get back to being the usual semi-happy kind of person I am. Since I was helping out a little at Enterprise:Flashed, I decided to use a different avatar in my box for a change.

- Alternate Style #2 is finally complete and available on this small and "Once in a while" maintained site. This template is a descendent of the custom template I created for Trek Fans United, so this is the "Authorized" version available for download. Meaning, if you are using the style not available from here, it means your version is a rip-off from TFU... I hope you are not using a TFU rip-off... I would be scared if I was, and I even made it!

With the new rankset on the site, that should definitely kick my rank count up to over 9,000 images. I am too scared to count them, however, so maybe when I get closer to 10,000... We'll see...

Thanks to Andrea Holmes for letting me whine and nag about the rankset while I pushed to try and get it done. Her patience is very useful!

Overhaul again. I would note a spark of excitement in my voice, but my personal life has been subject to lots of bovine excrement lately. I'll sum up what has been done.

- Future Imperfect Rankset #2 is available on Kuro-RPG, but I did not make it. One of Kuro-RPG's elite members created the design while I provided asssistance. Nonetheless, the new design is up and running.
- Klingon Rankset is on the Ranks page now. A complete batch, which covers marines, naval officers, and enlisted personnel.
- Romulan Rankset has been revised and includes one extra rank, for those who need a little more flexibility with that system.
- The "Ranks" page has be re-developed and re-arranged so I can include any special information about specific rankset.

Everything is up now. I do not know when the next update will be, but there is always work to be done at Kuro-RPG. However, it is approaching bedtime for me, so off I go.

8,506 ranks on my site... I have "ABSOLUTELY NO LIFE!!!" ... But on the plus side, as I was saying to dear friend of mine, if I was steady with someone, I would be lucky to have 1,000 done by now (Starting from when the website went online back in June). So, now members and guests of Kuro-RPG can enjoy the benefits of my misery, right? Heh.

- Future Imperfect Rankset is complete and posted on the rank page. I have not decided if I plan to expand on the existing 3 colors that have been posted. If I choose to, I will post an update.
- Earthforce Rankset is complete and posted on the rank page. I am not 100% happy with it, however, and there is a chance I may change at least on of the ranks down the road.
