The moderators of the site are some of the most respected people on the,site. These are deemed worthy of that title, by always having a : good attitude, good sources, facts, and knowledge on a variety of magic.
You can not ask to become one, normally you'll never become one, unless your asked. All mods are editors and publishers.
These are people who know how to write, and are, proven worthy to become this title. These are again, trusted members of the site. You usually have to be a member for more than 3-4 months.
These again, are deemed worthy. They reveiw all the works of the editors, and mostly publish the works of the site. Typically you become one, by proving healthy leadership in the editor ship.
Members: These people are the members of SoM. Some will have ranks, while others don't. You are an example of a member. Members have the option to : chat, post, and join covens. Everyone is a member.
Ranks are a title on the SoM website. These are earned by proven sources, knowledge, and helpful attitudes.
The ranks are: Fluff, None, Beginner, Novice, Knowledgeable, and Adept. Fluff basically deems the worst rank, as this practionaire is not serious about magic, or claims to do fluff. While adept or knowledgeable are said to be very wise in the craft.
