      Description

      Because of the performance issues (SAK-29654) with the new Forum Ranks feature that we got in Sakai 10 (SAK-24854), we need to create a property to disable the Ranks system to avoid our database from crashing under the hundreds of thousands of queries per hour and the millions of CPU-intensive buffers each hour attribute to the Ranks feature.

      However, because of the lack of time over the summer, we decided to implement this property in two phases:

      Phase 1 - disable the Ranks page from the UI so that instructors and maintainers cannot add Ranks (SAK-29934)

      Phase 2 - disable the Ranks feature throughout the code (this ticket)

      For this ticket, create a property (or replace/reuse the property from SAK-29934) that disables all of the Ranks feature code from Forums for institutions that don't want to use the feature or those that need to avoid the performance issues.
