OK...I know someone suggested the "other" position...And it was a good idea...

What I was thinking of is akin to that, but I was wondering if it would be possible for them to make one of the empty slots changeable. Like, a "choose your own position". Then make the patch section uploadable too. So many people have created great spin offs of the patches.

I know that while some positions people propose are scenario-specific, and some are just odd, it would be cool for people to be able to invent their own positions. An "other" position is too generic. But, making a customizable box for a position could be an outlet. People would be free to combine/define their positions to suit whatever. They could even have a description box for people to read, just like entering games.

We all know that the specific positions mean very little as concrete definitions on the field. Each person can and WILL change jobs as the task demands. The point of the positions is to describe the different things people do on field. I also think it is about inspiring excitement about the sport. I know its not popular to suggest a new position...they get booed out a lot... But this is supposed to be about fun. So if someone has a shield/granadier/engineer position that's been suggested a million times, they could just make it on their brigade page and be done with it.

Not a bad idea. It could end all of this non-sense talk on the scenario positons forum .. But this a really great idea, I would love to see that happen.

the blank position spaces either need to be filled or removed forever

I like it. Simple, elegant, and not labor intensive. This is the best position Idea ever! 5 stars. And Kudos! :happy:
If he rips my arms off, I'll kick him to death.
If he rips my legs off, I'll bite him to death.
If he rips my head off, I'll stare him to death.
And if he gouges my eyes out, I'll curse him from beyond the grave.

It's brilliant! Make it possible for other people to "have" their other positions without the rest of us having to hear about them. They get what they want and we get to enjoy the bliss that is ignorance.

Does MENSA know about you?
