Ten is trying to create a new form a ranking system to stop OP characters. However I think what he has done is simply too much.
I would say have 3 ranks only:
All the new characters would start at this rank. They would only have basic abilities etc. If people are mature they will know what they can and can't do. You must spend at least 2 weeks in this rank and you only rank up when your trainer/master thinks you're suited for it.
Sith Knight/Jedi Knight/Adept
They can train apprentices/etc and are the "average" rank. They must spend at least 6 months and be active during the time. However that is not enough, the GMs will consider him worthy or not for a "promotion" and will pm him if they think he is ready and un-biased/mature.
They can access high tier abilities etc and their input in topics is considered valuable since only mature members of the rp may achieve this rank.
Being master, knight or apprentice does not mean anything to your ability when commanding fleets etc. Only you're force powers and how mature you are.
This also ensures that the players with the best powers are also the reasonable ones.
