You can identify the ranks of members by the Rank Bar which can be found underneath their profile picture.
These are the types of ranking in the Order:
A Rank is related to the amount of study that has been accomplished at the Temple.
A Status is related to the level of rights and responsibilities (some legal) that a member has in the Temple.
An Office is a specific position held by a person that relates to specific tasks and responsibilities.
A Clerical Rank indicates the level of clerical duty and responsibility.
For additional details, please look at the laws that define Ranks and Statuses here.
Clerical Mentor An Ordained Clergy Person who is mentoring a Licensed Minister.
Temple Member - Status An individual who has completed a valid Application. A Temple member must be at least thirteen years of age (13) and those under the age of eighteen (18) must have parental permission to join.
If your Rank Bar shows the status of "Temple Member" and you have posted your first full IP lesson other than lesson 0 please contact Council so your Rank Barcan be changed, because this is not an automatic process.
