It is not necessary to reach every single measure [[#Rank specific details|listed below]] of a rank (including edit count) to be granted that rank promotion. It is merely required to be considered proficient primarily for the editing skill, knowledge, and behavioral expectations of that rank when you are reviewed. '''It is perfectly reasonable to anticipate being promoted before achieving the listed edit count for a rank, as long as you meet other criteria for that rank.'''
On the other hand, an editor who is seen to be damaging the map or engaging in suspicious editing practices, may not be granted a rank promotion despite having more than the required edit count.
