INSTALL: Read INSTALL.txt

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 http://www.tournamentgamingworld.com/online 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 YARSRANKS.zip 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.

When i click the approve, i get as you described above,
please_complete_required_fields

One thing you might want to remove that avatar.php out of the admncp folder in your file. I dont think that was supposed to be there unless you intended to impose a file code change, which could be a problem on the wide range of versions since that file already exists in the admincp folder.


I dont see where the usergroup change is. My intention is to not allow normal moderators but do allow super moderatiors to manage the adding of rank tags in the ModCP. Is it somewhere im not finding it?

Otherwise thanks for the updates so far. Im sure the bugs will be worked out quickly since you only have a small few.
Ohh man are you kidding? Crud I wanted it to work for you w/o problems lol!

I just do not have a 3.7.3 board running else I would test and debug even further but I posted it here per you stating in the 3.6.8 thread that it worked pretty decent and also it is in Beta stage here as well as for 3.6.8.

The code was in there for inclusion of the URLSELF but when I tested it this morning it would not load the .xml file correctly so I removed but like I said info on how-to in the install.txt Thanks for the info, I will look into this for you further and see if we can't get it ironed out! The URLSELF I had problems w/ myself until Jur revised the code but look for another update soon!!

EDIT: I also just noticed this question!

I was just looking at that part of the code this morning, I have to get off the computer before the wife get's me (run for your lives ) so I'll try for a post tomorrow but FYI for anyone regarding support I'm most active on the weekends .

Actually it is out for 3.7.1 as of now, I say that due to the fact there were errors on 3.7.3+ boards but I have a friend who is helping out w/ that we have both been busy recently though w/ paid requests but as soon as I get a chance I will update!

This one --> http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=194043

It addresses the bug in 3.7

I also assisted w/ a 3.8.1 install not too long ago and it turned out rather nicely and in the main style at TGW I have it in the sigs... soon to have a css background to display like an army ribbon but finding time to finish is always but as long as you have it marked as installed you'll get the update notice!
