XF 1.5 Flair System or Admin Edited Titles


Active member
Hi everyone, I am trying to work on my usergroups today to really make them count. In addition to defining all the usergroups that I want, I would like to give certain accounts "flair" like Reddit. I would like to validate people's background such as them being professional educators, scientist, journalist...etc. I am unsure how to accomplish this because I don't want 30 usergroups.

I am unsure if I can control a users custom title to verify their account and add the flair there or not. Does anyone do this? Perhaps a custom field that only admins or moderators can add or delete info like this? I am not sure if this is possible or not and I could find anything by searching.

TIA for any help or ideas!
