Factors relevant to promotion may be weighted differently at different ranks.
For example, promotions to Ranks 4 and 5 often emphasize communication, community involvement, mentoring, and leadership more heavily than promotions to Ranks 2 and 3.
, on the other hand, is of diminishing importance to promotion at higher ranks. If one edits with the requisite skill and communicates with integrity and etiquette, and other [[#Rank specific details|rank-associated criteria]] are satisfied, one may be promoted before achieving the listed edit count for a given rank. If not, promotion may not occur even after one has achieved the listed edit count. This should be seen not as a reflection of one's worth as an editor, but only as a result of the decreased relevance of edit count especially as one reaches higher ranks.

If you feel that you might be eligible for a rank promotion, please contact
your local management team including your [[State Manager|State Managers (SM)]], and [[Regional Coordinator]](s) (RC) to initiate a review, and the promotion process. Moving from rank
two to three, and higher, is not automatic and requires assistance, make sure to contact your managers/coordinator(s).
