If you log in after a long absence (100 days or more), and find your rank is well below what it should be, please do not worry. I log on every day and check ranks of all recent loggers to ensure correct ranking. Just to recap, the ranks are as follows:-
Initiate: Starting rank, and all members inactive over 100 days
Acolyte: 2 weeks+ as guild member plus minimum of 5,000 GSP's
Adept: 1 month+ as guild member plus minimum of 25000 GSP's
Family: 2 months+ as guild member plus minimum of 75,000 GSP's
Veteran: 3 months+ as guild member plus minimum of 200,000 GSP's
Elder: 6 months+ as guild member plus minimum of 500,000 GSP's
Founder: Officer rank, limited positions available, and must be Elder rank to be eligible.
