I think reality is that 3 star "squeeze" is the most optimal. Personally, I don't like those small vip4 and vip5 stars much. I feel like the forth and the fifth star must go outside the default borders. Anyway, thanks JamesG for the recognition.
Love what _ASH_ did there. However, these four stars would look better like this flying over the badge from the left side. And this looks a bit silly . I propose to create a ring of 5 stars. It would be great if you could do that _ASH_.
