"A few notes about the notation: the army ranks are written in green; navy ranks, in (duh) navy blue; marines, in blue (if none given, the navy equivalent is used for marines, except in the USMC that uses Army ranks for its officers instead); and air force, in gray (if none given, the army equivalent is used). Schutzstaffel is a special case, so it's just black, whereas universal ranks not attached to a particular service are maroon."

I don't see any colours on the ranks. Has this been changed, or is this an intended feature that hasn't been implemented yet?

There use to be colours on the wiki; now any pages that had colors and where subsequently edited lost it. For example the Red Alert page was locked to prevent this.

This page must be edited. Large parts of it are just lain wrong. It'll take a while.

The US military pay grade designator is "O" for officers, not "OF".

It starts at O-1, Second Lieutenant (Army, Air Force, Marines)/Ensign (Navy, Coast Guard); O-2 is Second Lieutenant (Army, Air Force, Marines)/Lieutenant JG (Navy, Coast Guard); O-3 is Captain (Army, Air Force, Marines)/ Lieutenant (Navy, Coast Guard); O-4 is Major (Army, Air Force, Marines)/ Lieutenant Commander (Navy, Coast Guard), etc.

This page is not using the US ranks. It is using the NATO equivalents, which do use OF.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
