Basically I have incorporated into my forum what is known as Quality Points. However in doing so, I also added additional ranks, in addition to the ones that are acquired through posts. The problem is that all the ranks for getting Quality Points can only be activated through the administrator, so it really is a pain to go through. Is there any way to program it so that the new ranks are not based just on regular posts, but also posts that I deem worthy of being "Quality Posts?"

If you are confused, just check this forum, its where I got the idea. Notice that some members have red and yellow stars, one set for posts, the other for Quality Points.
