I don't want to destroy the fun, but please leave it as it is.
First, we already have stars above our avatars.
Second I don't really feel the need to be titulated entitled by any military ranks or insignia, wether UK, US or any other. We are not an army nor a private army but mainly a weird international collection of humans (well, at least I hope so Wink ) with many different backgrounds.
Third, if you want a military title, you can include it for your own. You have one line below your avatar where you can add some text. By the way, your current one is: :3

I think that it could be optional.

I agree with Teg 100%.

The current Latin category names are neutral enough for me. Smiley

Letsee this is one idea have you the Administrator be a : Commander-in-chief
                                                                         Mods        :  Field Marshal/General of the Army-(5 star insignia or Field Marshal insignia)

                                                                         Interfectors:  General(4 stars insignia or UK insignia for all the other ranks)

                                                                         Funditor:  Lieutenant General- (3 stars)
                                                                         Descens:  Major General(2 stars)
                                                                         Tiro:  Brigadier General(1 star)
                                                                         Novicius:  Colonel(an eagle)

or we can have it like this

Interfector:  Sergeant

Funditor:  Corporal

Descens:  Lance Corporal

Tiro:  Private

Novicius:  Recruit

I kind of like the look of the first of my idea,  looks a lot more interesting than just Enlisted ranks  Cheesy.  

When we picked the names for the post counts we were actually trying not to look martial.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

can't remember what the latin names mean.

And that's fine by me Smiley
