These are the Guild Ranks for active members of The Order of Sixty-Six:
Guildmaster and Throne Guard - The leader of the guild and the designation for any alternate characters of said player. Currently Aieranda.
Masters Council - The officers of the guild, currently comprised of Adara, Oznah, DarthGM, and Vadersson. The purpose of the officers is to generally manage the guild membership and give aid to event organizers where they can. Other appointments may be made depending on need.
Chosen of Revan - A step below the Master's Council. The intention of this rank or position is to help ride herd on the general membership. They are the organizers and doers of day to day activities in the guild, whether it be operations, in-game events, flashpoints, warzones, RP events, etc.... At this time there are not any members of this rank. This is not a position you can apply for; you will be asked to accept it. You can turn it down with no complaints whatsoever and no one will think the less of you.
The Vigilant - One step below Chosen of Revan. These are the folks that have a special function within the guild and/or have distinguished themselves in service to the guild in the past, typically as founders, officers, or a public face such as recruiters, podcast hosts, and website folks. Many of these were on the Council at one time, but are either retired or no longer active on the Council. For those that are still active in-game, they have this rank assigned but we recognize them here also: GM Dave, Fiddleback, Kat, Perrian, AlphaAnt, Tir-Jin, Zertz, Praetoris, Preacher, Starkweather, Faliena, and Fulongamer.
Hand of Revan - This is one step above Revanchist. You've made a significant contribution to the guild in some way, whether that is via in game stuff like crafting, RP storyline assistance, or what have you or out of game stuff like articles for the web site or helpful editing duties.
Revanchist - The general membership level of the guild. You will be able to add your main character name, legacy name, or your d20 radio forum name to the Member Notes section for your characters in the guild panel in game, if not already done for you by an officer while you were an Initiate. Please keep your member note consistent across all characters aligned with our guilds, including Imperial faction alts in the Exiled Lords. You are also at least level 10 and have your Advanced Class picked out. You can name the officers without referring to a cheat sheet. The Officers know who you are. Most likely this will be where the majority of the membership is found.
Initiate - Getting to know you! These are the are totally new members to the guild who are with us in their first 30 days as members or they are level 9 or below. They are members of the guild and to be treated with the respect due any other full member of the guild, but we just don't know them well enough yet. Initiates that have been members for 30 days and who are active (log in at least once a week) will automatically be promoted to the general membership rank of Revanchist. Initiates who show initiative with greater participation and activity such as assisting guild mates with events, quests, flashpoints, and PvP queues may be promoted sooner at the discretion of the guild officers.
Inactive - Characters of the Hand of Revan rank or lower that are inactive for over 90 days. Players that return will be allowed to return to their previous rank, up to Hand of Revan. This group is too lengthy to enumerate here but it exists as one mechanism to give returning players a gateway back into the guild.
Retirement - Characters of the Hand of Revan rank or lower that are inactive for over 180 days and who have a member note will have all alt characters except for one removed from the guild. If you had member notes populated, the one alternate character that remains in guild will retain the rank of Inactive. You can specify to an officer which character you'd like to retain in the guild if you are planning to take a leave of absence. You can do this when you are ready to leave the game if you chose to share your plans with an officer. Should such players return, at least one of their characters should still be in the guild and able to communicate with the active players to get involved again and get their alts re-invited. Returning players can resume their previously held ranks, up to Hand of Revan. Characters with no member note whatsoever and 180 days of inactivity will simply be removed from the guild panel within game. This is not a banishment in any sense of the word and all past members are welcome to return. This is simply done to better manage the guild panel in-game.
Please note: NONE of these include d20 Radio membership contributions as a factor in promotion and never will. You already spent money on the game; we are not going to make spending more money a factor in guild stuff. That way madness lies. Nor will bribing with in game credits or other such nonsense be tolerated. If you want to donate these sorts of things to the guild as whole, cool. They will be much appreciated. But these will not be considered as factors in rank promotion. In short, the way to rise in rank is to be an active participant in and supporter of your guild in ways that add value to the guild as a whole and generally improve the life of your guild mates.
