    What does SP use to handle their "award medals / mod icons"

    So I am trying to run Vbulletin on my site, and I am trying to figure out how to award certain people with either

    a. An emblem/graphic that shows they are special
    b. An icon/graphic that shows they are moderators, etc... like SP does.

    In Vbulletin, I see a section for avatar, profile pic, signature picture.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Awards are a custom field I believe.

    As for mod/admins I think that's just custom code written that looks at which group(s) the user is a part of, and displays any images matching that group.

    Close, but in fact the Admin/Advisor/Mentor/Staff/etc badges use the same vBulletin Rank Manager as the Stripes displayed for regular users.
