Special ranks and their meanings
Joining and being an active member in this Community will earn you special ranks and groups as you continue to be active on the boards. Members who are a part of special ranks will have gradient backgrounds around their username/avatar when you are viewing a thread. The color and location of these ranks illustrates what special group that member is a part of.


Restricted Group: Partner
A user with a blue gradient on the top left of their username indicates they are a Partner. Partners are members who own their own Silent Hill website and chose to have Silent Hill Community be their official forum and gathering point of their site's visitor/fanbase. This is a closed-off special group.

Restricted Group: Administrators
A user with a yellow gradient on the top left of their username indicates they are an Administrator. This is a closed-off special group.

Restricted Group: Moderators
A user with a green gradient on the top left of their username indicates they are a Moderator. This is a closed-off special group.

Special Group: Resident
A user with a grey gradient on the top right of their username indicates they have at least 1,000 posts and are long-standing members.

Image


Special Group: Silent Hill Expert
A user with a red gradient on the top right of their username indicates they are a Silent Hill Expert. The Silent Hill Expert rank is given to members who have actively been a part of the Silent Hill-specific forums with quality posts within the Community. Administrators and moderators choose who has earned this rank.

Special Group: Silent Hill Prestige
A user with a red gradient and Halo of the Sun on the top right of their username indicates they are Silent Hill Prestige.

Administrators and moderators choose who has earned this rank.

Special Group: Special Guest
A user with a purple gradient and "Special Guest" tag on the top right of their username indicates they are members who are working on official Silent Hill IP in some way or another. (Konami staff, development staff, comic book staff, etc.)

Rank Hierarchy
If a member belongs to more than one group/rank then the higher-level group will take dominance.
