I'd like to see a new option that would let an administrator set up admin accounts so that they wouldn't get the user rank tags (Junior member, etc).

The reason for this is that when a forum is first established, postings in a forum by the administrator show that he/she is a Junior member. That just doesn't make sense, and it sort of undermines or diminishes their importance. The only thing that can currently be done, is to alter the ranking numbers, but that has a global effect on all accounts.

What we need is a way to tell the forum, "Ok, I'm the Administrator, don't apply the rankings to my admin account. Just show me as the Administrator, but keep the rankings for all non-admin accounts."

Should be easy to code. I'll accept a patch, but are not going to code it myself.
