Forum: The Situation Room > CTU rank possible confusion

I was never confident that the information we currently have about what ranks/office-names people held in CTU are perfectly accurate. And today an anonymous user brought something to my attention: on both the pages for Regional Division Director and Administrative Director, Ryan Chappelle is listed as holding both offices during Hell Gate. Is this possible? Was he clearly promoted from one to the other during Hell Gate? Could Admin Director be simply a short form for Regional Div Director? (I'd do it myself of course but I haven't read those books & Season 1 is the only season I don't have the DVDs for.) – Blue Rook 21:06, 15 June 2008 (UTC)talkcontribs

I seem to recall both titles being used. But it's just another symptom of what's always been painfully obvious: the writers go for whatever title sounds more authoritative and bureaucratic at the moment. I don't believe for a second that there's any kind of organized rank system, or at least one that gels with what's been given. --Pyramidhead 17:18, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah I'm with Pyramidhead, in no way do the writers (show or novel) try to make a valid system of rank for CTU. --SignorSimon (talk/contribs/email) 21:56, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
I'd since come to this same conclusion sometime after posting this back in 2008. (this was bumped to the top of the forum because someone vandalized it.) Blue Rook  talk  contribs 23:42, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

I definitely recall a system of sorts albeit very, very vague. I like how we have listed what rank or what each character was charged with doing at CTU for each of the days but Chappelle was the big apple regardless until Day 3.
