Editing rank USA
You can see your own editing rank from the Waze Map Editor (WME) on the top left of the screen. Your rank appears as a series of cones with a number. In the WME when you select a segment, the properties drawer will show you the name of the editor who created and last modified the segment. The number in parenthesis is the rank system scale.
If your rank is lower than what it should be (based on the criteria below), please contact your Regional Coordinator (RC) to have them look into the situation. Moving from rank two to three, and higher, is not automatic and requires RC assistance.
Note that this chart is USA specific. Please refer to the global ranking wiki page here.
