I'm not sure what you mean by existing ranks not appearing. :scratch:
Indeed - prior to this post - it is not clear how a non-admin could even know what the existing ranks are, except by seeing them.

Anyway, to clear up the issue: The current ranks in use are in the first column below, and the number of posts to attain that rank is in the second column.
Code:
Beginner          0    
Dies in gote     20    
Dies with sente  70    
Lives with ko   125    
Lives in gote   300    
Lives in sente  675    
Gosei          1200    
Oza            2000    
Tengen         3600
Judan          4400
Honinbo        7000
Meijin        11000   
Kisei         17000

I think another row needs to be added:
Code:
Goseigen      25000

A user's go playing rank (actually displayed as "Rank: something") are optional in a user's profile settings. Not all users chose to display theirs.
But forum rankings (shown above the user's avatar; which is the actual topic of this thread) is a pseudo title associated to a user based on their number of posts on the forum. Its changed since the start of this thread.

Ranks which I had observed, were not mentioned in this thread before, but there were others that are not currently in use.

No hurry. The top is still at Judan level.

Why is the Tengen band so narrow? Each next rank has a wider band than the previous rank except Tengen :)

I guess it is b/c nobody has ever been known to be “in the middle of heaven” for a longer time :D
