Not in phpbb2
SMF and Phpbb3 can sorta do this. I could probably edit them to do it the way you describe it, though that would still require ftp access.

<--

they are currently a definite work in progress; actually, the Fleet Officer & Fleet Admiral ranks I just added in were an experiment.

Hmm. Not bad. Just so long as I lose this blasted ronin class target eventually. ;)

Hi guys, just wanted to let everyone have the chance to voice their ideas for ranks & ship images!

One of the things I hope to achieve is to show off the new ships george has made ;)

Anything larger than 96x96 will be shrunken to those dimensions, like the CSC on my rank.

Ships I'd like to see:

Manticore
Britannia
Something other than the hornet for base rank. Sandstorm? (In many games, they're the most common ship in the game)
IAVs
Centurions (which we currently have)

This is phpbb2 right?
Does it support usergroups? If so, what about adding some usergroups that are public. Perhaps according to different sovs or what kind of role we put ourselves in with regards to the community.

Unfortunatly I don't think we can do that in phpbb2; not with any meaningfulness; not until we get smf or phpbb3. (SMF has a very nice support for this, and phpbb3 can do quite a bit natively as well)

@ your idea prophet
That is partly possible by rank and classification however it would be hard to come by to find a feature where you can select the ship, as they are usually identiications. Yo u can customize what displays but it would definetally be a custom mod. :/

Or a creative setup... If I'm reading his suggestion right, it could be done w/o a mod.

Well, because SMF has such a nice way of tying in the rank icons to the usergroups, it makes it really convenient. It's all natively supported, really.
