    Ranks on Zelda Sages are designed to serve as an incentive to participate in both the Zelda Sages community and contribute positively to the website. Ranks are not just a reflection of how many posts you have, but rather a culmination of your participation on Zelda Sages. Ranks are determined by: Days Registered, Posts, Likes Received, Trophy Points.

    The Ranks

    NOTE: Unless you meet ALL REQUIREMENTS for a specific rank, you will not receive any associated permissions with that rank. However, if you have the required number of trophy points, your user title will appear as that rank. You will know you have received the group's permissions when your username color changes. For example: if you have the correct number of trophy points for the, "Groose" rank but you do not have the other requirements, you will have the Groose rank title but not the permissions associated with the rank.
