make sure that you have CHMOD the directory and images to 666 or 755, if 666 works - stick with that.

this is definetly possible, but you will need a MOD. i am not sure if one is offically released but you can try digging through the validated mods and the beta mods for one.

log in as admin, enter the administration control panel and scroll the right menu to the bottom till you see ranks.

this is where you add / edit / remove ranks.
