|SwimHELPeR||Assigned to users along with the responsibility to watch over (report any abuse to mods, edit out any spoilers, merge obvious repeat threads, create polls/announcements, etc.) up to two show folders and create Wikis or guides for the shows in question.
To get this rank you must outwardly express interest in a particular show. It probably also helps to show knowledge about the show and to have a good track record.
Each folder can only have up to two HELPeRs (with a few special exceptions).
|SwimArbiter||Moderators. Assigned to users trusted to enforce the site’s TOS and to just generally keep the peace (and er. . . moderate). They can lock and delete threads, move and delete posts/threads, ban users.
To get this rank/position, you must be 18 years or older, and it’s said you’re more likely to get noticed if you follow the rules, be helpful, use good grammar, and have a good record as far as bans are concerned.
You can not apply for the position. Campaigning is discouraged and won’t help you. Just try to have fun on the boards, be nice and well-behaved, and maybe some day you’ll get noticed.
|SwimInsider||Administrators. Williams Street employees trusted with running the website.
The Only way to get this rank is to work at Williams Street, on the website, and get assigned the rank.
|SwimInsider||Williams Street Employees.
The only way to get the rank would be to become a Williams Street employee. If you’re interested, this is the place to go to look for open jobs.
|SwimAssociate||People affiliated with Adult Swim. Often given to show creators/producers/writers.
The only way to get this rank is obvious.
|Retired SwimBouncer||Moderators who’ve stepped down from moderatorhood.|
|Ol’ Salt||People who used to be admins who are no longer admins.|
|Custom Ranks||User-specific ranks, given out for various reasons. Often as rewards. These are becoming more and more common as they occasionally get contest prizes.
If you see a rank that wasn’t listed on this chart, there’s a good chance it was a custom. Try checking this chart for it.
