Here at Builder Forge we have a two track rank system, one based on a players displayed build skill and the other on a players commitment to the server. This way we recognise people irrespective of ability or activity. The two rank systems are designed to work side by side, for example, a trusted member of the community could also be a skilled builder, as such their rank would be displayed as [T][S].
You can move up the skill rank ladder with the rankup form. The rankup form serves as your way of letting the Staff Team know you feel you have progressed with your building ability with your projects on the server.
When you first join the server, you start out with the Guest rank, this rank allows you to build in the Guest map.
If you wish to join the community and build on the Creative map, you will need to submit a rankup form, you may submit your first rankup form whenever you would like and has no requirements, simply submitting a form will grant you the Builder rank. If you choose to also submit photos of your builds in your first rankup form you have the ability to skip up to the Novice or Apprentice rank if your builds are of that quality. After that, you may submit a rankup form whenever you feel you are ready for the next rank. After you have reached the APPRENTICE rank, there is a 21 day minimum cooldown to submit a rankup for SKILLED.
Guest is the default starting rank for people who join our Minecraft server. Guests have basic commands such as /warp and /tpa and are able to build in the Guest Map.
Builder is received after registering for Builder. Builders get a variety of additional commands such as /home /hdb and /ptime. Builder is the minimum rank required to build in the Creative map.
