This mod was developed from the YAAS - Yet Another Awards System mod by Hancho! You can find out all about it here --> Click Here <-- Great mod, please see his listed credits so everyone who has lead up to this variation can be honored!

Developed by Kristof aka JurGradi, a recently retired administrator of Tournament Gaming World and a good friend of mine for almost a year now, He is a brilliant web guru who has surprised me at every turn with his vast knowledge of well... everything! Most certainly TheLastSuperman's.... Superman!

Install instructions and everything you need should be in the zip, read it carefully and take your time, this works and has been tested on in several styles. Some of the guru's out there can tweak it more to suit their tastes all we ask is credit where credit is due i.e. how we listed where the idea came from.

For questions or Support please post below and I'll attempt to help you in any way I can even buggin' JurGradi on occasion however he has included an installer which I have repackaged via .zip therefor it has all the required files in the zip plus the same content in an installer form included as well so choose your method!

If you like it click install and be sure to check out the Yet Another Awards System by Hancho!

Special thanks to my friend JurGradi for his development of Yet Another Ranks System!

*The General Stars are the mod* ignore the custom image I inserted via html in the user title area... I need to remove it now lol!

Update: Uploaded which contains ranks for tournaments/clans/gaming sites to use with Yet Another Ranks System, themes are for Battlefield 2142 & Call of Duty 4! Special thanks to Called for the graphics!

*Attention* Please view the first page as the 2nd and 3rd post were reserved and contain additional information.
