Your best bet is to go into the mentor program(It teaches you how to write reviews most effectively.The option for it is on your dashboard page on the left hand side where it lists everything else.). The easiest way to see your ranking is to go to your public page. In the right hand corner there is a link that says "My Eden" and how many points you've earned. It's right beside the Help option. Click that and it should give you the option to see your public profile.
Hit the About Me section and in the left hand side it should tell you your rank. Right now it's not there because you haven't submitted a review. Once you do you can start building your rank. Your rank is influenced by how active you are in the forums, how well your reviews are received by the community and it fluctuates because every other members participation affects it. If you post one review all year and somebody else posts one every day they will force your rank down because they're more active. IF you're active then it should stay around the same number and slowly grow with the more you do.
Now, if you don't want to review and just want to use the forums then you can ignore everything I've said. You only worry about your rank if you're a reviewer. If you're just here for fun they don't mean anything to you, nor do they affect you. Since you want to do tasks though, you do have to submit reviews to build your rank in order to be accepted into the programs.
Here is a link that explains the ranking better.
