Custom ranks have been and are given from time to time...as has been discussed many many times for several reasons. One being you won a contest, another being you were on a team competing for a contest, and other times to nudge people that they may be on the radar for the staff due to behavior. Some of these have been "n00b of the month," "village idiot," etc. Elephant Knight and Athos have their special pink names and group and have for a long time. There have been times when people did not follow through on a commitment and were labeled another and given the icon of steaming dung. The way to get yourself removed from a custom rank is to improve. Oh and complaining about the rank, usually makes it last longer, or get worse.
