Need a hack to postbit template for sponsoring members (almost but no cigar)

Below is the implementation that I have so far. I want to display a sponsoring member logo if the user is a sponsoring member and only if they have chosen to identify themselves in this group. If they are a sponsoring member I do not want to display the normal rank. If they are not a sponsoring member I do want to display the rank icon(s) only. I have two usergroups that are sponsoring member usergroups as you can see below. This hack almost works, except it seems to display both the sponsoring member icon and the rank icons for some but not all users. Can't explain it, can anyone else?

Your conditionals make no sense to me. Both usergroup ids checked in your code are 94. You probably want different usergroups, want to check a profile field to see if the individual has elected to display the rank or not, or perhaps I'm not entirely understanding what you're trying to accomplish.

My suggestion is to create a yes/no profile field that the user can edit in the control panel through the Admin CP and note the field ID. In the code below, replace Y with the field ID. Then, replace X with the usergroup sponsoring members are moved into through the paid subscription.

Using this method, however, means that all members would see the option to turn this on and off. You might want to base it off of the display group instead and allow members to select which group they want to be associated with (your standard usergroup for registered members vs. your subscription usergroup).

The duplicate user id's was definitely a typo and I had already fixed that. Using the display group to define whether a user is shown as a sponsoring member is exactly what I want but I haven't figured out how to do that.
