Well as the guild grows the list of elders becomes bigger and bigger the set rules for this guild are as follows,and ill use our current situation as an example.
Right now active lvl 50+ becomes an elder,when we get 10 lvl 60+ that will become the new elder status and so forth and so on.
You will become a regular member when becoming 10 lvls below elder lvl requirement.
Newcomer status is reserved for new recruits who have shown they are active and participating in the guild,and it also requires 10 lvl lower than regular members.
All Apprentices who are not active or showing interest in lvling up will be kicked without notice
