Also, as the series progresses into the 'New World' I will update the power levels. As of this moment we have yet to see enough of anyone's new powers after the time skip to judge them accurately. But after our first major battle I will update accordingly. Secondly I will be crossing out deceased fighters. (Won't remove simply cross them out.)
Garp, Sengoku & Rayleigh moved to Level 9.5
Enel & Ivankov moved to Level 7.5
Levels 9.5/7.5 & 6.5 Added
Color Code Added
Deceased Marker Added.

You need to add Shiki and Smoker was definitely stronger than Luffy before the timeskip.
What level do I put Shiki on? After getting defeated in Strong World I don't know were to put him.
Smoker ability to me seems to be more like Luffy vs Enel. Although Enel was stronger Luffy still won but could simply be my opinion. If more people think Smoker is stronger than Luffy. Please Post. I'll move Smoker to 6.5.
But I agree that Smoker in both of his encounters with Luffy was superior in ability and fighting prowess.. So I'd say Smoker was a higher "level" than Luffy up til now at least...
But you never know how two ability users will match up with each other..
So I give credit to those of you who can see "rankings" in a manga where I see none...
There are things that just can not be judged. Such as the 'human' factor. One Piece is a story and as such only its author has final say on 'Strength' however from what we have seen we can make educated guesses(hypothesis). Secondly I think that this 'Ranking' system will help us determine growth. Luffy and the SH have grown and most likely so have other major characters! This will help us keep track of their general power. This isn't a 'match up thread' were we say if X guy fights Y guy X will win. This is simply an overall ranking.
As characters in OP improve or show more of their abilities I will try to update this thread after every week (depending on events in the chapters released.) and keep this thread as up to date as possible.

This ranking is nothing more than group opinions, it's just a matter of what the majority think someone's level of strength is and putting them there. Shiki, IMO, was Level 9 but after cutting legs of and what not, dropped to level 6 to 7.
You could add 0.5 for Krieg, and had Kuro to lvl 1!

magellan should be up a level.
hmm.. i do think Jozu should be a little lower than Marco and Ace. he's only physically stronger than them.
and i think nami, chopper, usopp is not stronger than bellamy, arlong and buggy.
Jozu is super strong , super fast and super resilient (diamond , no scratch after Mihawk slash etc).
Among the admirals , only Ao Kiji had the power to OS him ..
Plus he mastered (slightly at least) armored haki (or whatever is this color's name).
What are Ace's achievements ? I don't understand why he HAS to be better than Jozu. Because he led the 2nd division and Jozu the third ?
Magellan should be in 7.5, he did beat Ivan, and so should Vista, I mean, do you really see them at the same level as a PX?
Or you just move PX to 6.5.
Personally I don't agree with a lot of things here.
First of all I wouldn't rank Shanks nor any of his crew because he have not seen enough. And perhaps I also wouldn't rank Enel, we don't have a good reference of how would he handle someone else than the Strawhats.
About the baroque works, I would put Galdino in level 2 or 3. I also would move Bon Kurei to the same line as Daz Bones, they briefly fought and in my opinion the difference in strength is very small. Also I would move Nico Robin over Franky and Brook, and by consequence also over Daz Bones.
Smoker has advantage of Luffy because of the Devil Fruit. But yet I won't rank him over Luffy.
Also, I think the Vice-Admirals are being overrated. I can't rank them over Moria or Lucci. I can't imagine these two losing to them, in fact I see Moria of Lucci easily defeating a vice-admiral.
Jinbei and Crocodile are being underrated. Jinbei fought most of time in land, and against Akainu, so we did not see what he can really do. And Crocodile is always underestimated because he lost to Luffy?
A list from me would probably looks like this:

Only thing I'd find imperative to change...
PX. on 6.5 and Smoker on 6!
I'd Rank Smoker the same as Luffy, he only wins because of the fruit!
