status assignment

navigation bar
Giving something a place (status) in the scheme of things.
The place that a thing has in the scheme of things is something that is decided, not merely discovered. This holds both for my scheme of things and for our scheme of things.

The "something" here is not restricted to persons, but may be anything—objects, processes, events, states of affairs, individuals, groups, heaps, sets, structures, happenings, absences, statements, actions, achievements, etc.
