"Junior Member" is the collective term for members of TarValon.Net that have not reached the rank of Senior Member.
Unlike Senior Members, Junior Members' continued membership of TarValon.Net is conditional on either their continued presence, or if they will be absent, on declaring an official leave of absence.
If a Junior Member is absent from the site without declaring a leave of absence, they may be removed in a Membership clean up. If a Novice, Recruit, Accepted, or Soldier returns to the site after being removed in a membership clean up, they will start over at the rank of Citizen.
A Junior Member who is absent but declares an official leave of absence will retain their rank.
