Never played it, but I believe it's the rankings from Tetris: The Grand Master, AKA TGM.

If I'm not mistaken, TGM is a beastly hard Japanese arcade version of Tetris. Something like 3 people in the entire world have earned the Grand Master title.

Probably was just an example gameplay screenshot, not really to show off their own ability, but just to make an image of what the game looks like to those who would like to see, but probably doesn't otherwise play that game or possibly not even tetris overall that much.

Oh my gosh yes.

Also, I second Orlandu's suggestion of a FFT rankset. But it needs better definition.

Orlandu: I think the postcount requirements should all have 1 subtracted from them so that you reach a new rank with every new milestone, as most rank sets have it set up.

Otherwise, I think it's good, and I kinda like the idea of having a male rank set to go along with a female one.

Guess I need to post more frequently and get to my rightful rank at 10,000+ posts.

Orlandu. Although shouldn't the female sprite for the highest rank be Holy Swordswoman?

I think AcmlmBoards are designed to wrap around at 10000, though. So, say, having 12500 posts would be the same, rank-wise, as having just 2500. This is why the really insanely high-posting people here don't have ranks displayed
