The configuration of a new rank is fairly simple and you will need to only input the Rank Title and the Minimum Posts which a user will get that rank based on.

Once you click you will need to confirm the deletion and the rank will be permanently removed. 

 

Last but not least you are probably wondering how you should edit an existing rank. It is fairly easy using the green icon in the Action column next to the rank you would like to edit.

This icon will redirect you to the same page as the one you have seen when you were creating the rank, however this time the settings of the rank will be configured in order for you to edit these.
