Sticky Neon Ranks

    We distinguish between four different types of ranks.
    Each member has exactly one Primary Rank. It includes rights, duties etc. of all lower ranks (except for the italic ones). Primary Ranks apply to the whole clan, i.e. gameservers, the forum, Mumble etc. The Primary Ranks are sorted in an ascending order, i.e. from the lowest to the highest.
    Secondary Ranks also apply to the whole clan, but they are not hierarchic and a member may have none, one or multiple Secondary Ranks.
    Titles are like Secondary Ranks, but they apply only to one single area, e.g. the Mumble server. Thus “Mumble Moderator” wouldn't be a Secondary Rank, but a Title, as it has nothing to do with e.g. the forum, but applies only to the Mumble server.
    Finally, Section Ranks are used to classify Sections.

    For the sake of clarity the different rank types are organized in spoilers. A click on a rank type shows the corresponding ranks.
