1. LOL
2. ROFL
3. WTF
4. OMFG
5. FML
---------
and, optional:
6. TH;DP (too hard; didn't play)
This really made my day. :D

The ratings for my current pack are:

1. Harmless
2. Disturbing
3. Disgusting
4. Abhorrent
5. Demented
Those sound like horror themed level ratings to me. :P They are still great!

Kiitos! :D Well, PARALEMS is a zombie-heavy pack, so I guess horror-themed is quite accurate...

I might indeed use these gamer-themed ranks in my Pit Lems pack. I'm just not sure whether all of these abbreviations are widely known enough.

For the other one based around gimmicks, I will create a different kind of ranking names that are not specifically "increasing in intensity" but rather indicative of the gimmick enabled on that specific rank (like "deluge" for rising water, "hasty" for frenzy etc.).

My packs so far:
Lemmings World Tour, my music-themed flagship pack, 320 levels - Let's Played by Colorful Arty
Paralems, a more flavour-driven one, 150 levels
Pit Lems, a more puzzly one, 100 levels - Let's Played by nin10doadict
Lemmicks, a pack for NeoLemmix 1.43 full of gimmicks, 170 levels

I have many rank name ideas that I know I will never, ever use. So if anyone is thinking of making a pack but has no ideas for rank names, feel free to take one of these:

Not so Easy
Oh, so hard
Very Hard
Very, Very Hard

Seeking Fun
Seeking Trouble
Seeking Danger
Seeking Death

Warm up
Scuffle
Fight
Brawl
No-holds-barred-beatdown

Disheartening
Dangerous
Deadly
Demonic
Damned

Any Dungeons & Dragons players here? I haven't been an active one for years, but it recently came to my mind that the size categories for creatures from D&D might make for a good rank hierarchy, referring to the dimensions of the challenge:

Tiny
Small
Medium
Large
Huge
Gargantuan
Colossal


If I ever do a follow-up to Lemmings World Tour - meaning: another music-themed pack - instead of popularity / how famous the songs are, I'd focus on the dynamics from soft to heavy. For example:

Quiet / Soothing
Groovy
Noisy
Loud
Deafening
