* There are no requirements to maintain Enlisted ranks. As long as you maintain your membership through forum activity, you will retain the Enlisted rank you have earned.
Private [PVT] through Corporal [CPL] are probationary members.
What this means is if you break the rules of Fever, cause frequent minor problems, or act disruptively to other Fever members, you will be removed from Fever. Your main goal here is to figure out if Fever is a good fit for you, and we try to figure out if you are a good fit for Fever.
Sergeant [SGT] through Master Sergeant [MSG] are members.
You have made it through probation, congratulations! At this level if you break the rules, cause frequent minor problems, or act disruptively to others, you will be punished or possibly removed from Fever. Even at this rank level, members who sexually harass someone, act racist, or are caught cheating will face immediate removal. Your main job at these ranks is to learn about Fever. Members work towards: figuring out Fever's structure, strive to gain an understanding of what we embody here, and as always, follow our main rule of having fun.
First Sergeant [1SG] through Sergeant Major [SGM] are senior members.
You are moving up in the world. If you break the rules, cause frequent minor problems, or act disruptively to others, most of the time you will be punished rather than removed from Fever. More then likely, you will only receive a warning the first time. However, even though you are are considered a senior member, even senior members who sexually harass someone, act racist, or are caught cheating will face immediate removal. Senior members have been with Fever for awhile or they have put in work deserving of a senior member rank.
Sergeant Major of the Army [SMA] is the highest regular member rank.
You are now the tallest short straw. Members at this rank have shown dedication to Fever, possess a good working knowledge of the Fever rules. They also provide guidance to other Enlisted members. Sergeant Major of the Army can also be former officers that no longer wish to be an officer in Fever. At this point in the game, you have been around for a while, done great work at Fever jobs, and / or you have recruited a lot of people. This is the time Fever's Officers and Leaders will be looking at you for possible promotion to Officer.
Vetted Member |VM| is a specialty rank for Enlisted members.
It is earned by a long stretch of continued activity within Fever and being an asset to the community. Awarding an Enlisted member the rank of |VM| is Leadership's way of saying thank you in a special way, by giving you a rare rank.
* In order to maintain your Officer rank; you must have one or more jobs. At 2LT - 1LT one of those jobs must be Platoon CO or XO. At CPT - MAJ you may either hold a Platoon CO or XO job or a Department Coordinator or Assistant Director or Director job. At LTC - COL one of those jobs must be Assistant Director or Director job.
Second Lieutenant [2LT] and First Lieutenant [1LT] are junior officers.
Welcome to grunt work! At this point you will become a Platoon Leader as one of your primary jobs. You also get the added benefit of seeing Officer Chat, or O chat as we call it. Take the time to read EVERY single sticky within the Officers Forums. This will answer a lot of your initial questions, provide you with a better understanding of what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. Your main job here is to have a opinion and a voice that is your own without being unnecessarily contentious.
Captain [CPT] and Major [MAJ] are officers.
You have hit your stride; you excel at the jobs you have taken on or jobs you have been delegated. Your primary responsibilities are to take care of your platoon work, the members within your platoon, work your jobs, and continue to have an opinion and voice within your section. As an officer within Fever, you should know the rules well and personify them. At Major, you are given Server Admin (SA) on Teamspeak. This is a big deal; you are now able to ban Guest users who are spammers, trolls, or ragers.
Lieutenant Colonel [LTC] and Colonel [COL] are senior officers.
It is time for you to refine your skills. Lieutenant Colonel [LTC] is an officer who stands out from the rest of the officers. LTC's and COL's will transition from doing platoon work to leading a department that best suits their skill set. LTC's and COL's manage the Enlisted members and Officers in their department. They ensure that their assigned game areas run well, actively promote events, oversee recruiting, and run administrative sections. Colonel [COL] is someone who has proven their officer skills and is being readied for promotion to the general ranks.
* In order to maintain your General rank; you must have one or more jobs. One of these jobs must be a Department Assistant Director or Director or job approved by the Head of HR.
Brigadier General [BG] are junior generals.
You are now part of the major leagues; sorry no guaranteed salary minimum here, you are still a volunteer. This rank is all about the members. Your whole job is to keep the peace, process applications, administer the forums, find improvements if possible, run the sections, etc. Each and every General has a specific job that they perform. They outrank a Captain [CPT] or a Colonel [COL] for sure, but that does not mean their voice necessarily outweighs even a Private's. This rank simply means they have done a ton of work, and they have been rewarded with more work and responsibility. Brigadier Generals [BG] are an example of what other Officers should strive to be. At this rank, the Leaders and Founders will be looking at you as a possible Leader in Training. You will make mistakes in the beginning, but it will be a valuable learning experience.
Major General [MG] are generals.
You have either more seniority, more responsibilities, more important tasks, or a combination of them over Brigadier Generals [BG].
Lieutenant General [LTG] are generals.
You oversee clan infrastructure, having less to do with direct interaction of members, and more of dealing with the things that keep the clan running like a well oiled machine.
General [GEN] are senior generals.
The last rank before leadership, Generals have proven their loyalty to Fever and its members. Their dedication exceeds day to day tasks; they ensure members, officer, fellow generals, leaders, and founders have synergy towards maintaining Fever's standards and pushing forward the improvement of the main aspects of Fever's upkeep.
* In order to maintain your Leader rank; you must have one or more jobs. One of these jobs must be a Department Head or job assigned by Bogo.
Commander of the Army [COA] are junior leaders.
You are a leader of the whole Fever Clan community. You have proven that they can be trusted with keys to the kingdom.
General of the Army [GOA] are leaders.
You rarely make mistakes, essentially what you say is the same as a Founder [FDR], basically you are among those who hold the final authority of Fever Clan.
Founder [FDR] are the founding members of Fever.
There are only three and they will never change. They are the big cheese, the people behind the curtain, the big kahunas, the kingpins, the bosses: Bogo, Dewster74, and Virus (on a side note, Virus is Fever's main programmer. Anyone else find that funny?). They started Fever and they have run it ever since. Do not be afraid to approach them on the forums, teamspeak, or through private message. Their job is to make sure you are having fun and that your voice is heard regardless of how silly you think it is. I would like to tell you what these guys' jobs are but it is a secret to everybody. Essentially, they make the final decisions on topics big and small (when necessary) and help administer Fever as a whole.

When you return to full duty, most of the time you will be placed back at the rank you had when you took a leave of absence.

You have earned it, enjoy it, and stay around with the clan you have contributed to.

If you are not able to return after three months, you will be placed on in a Leave of Absence rank. When you return to full duty, most of the time you will be placed back at the rank you had when you took a short term leave. Remember that VO is still regarded as an Officer or General rank, and multi-clanning is not allowed. If you need to take a break, feel free to do so.
