You can see your own editing rank ''AKA level'' from the [[Waze Map Editor]] (WME) on the [[Map Editor Interface and Controls#Left_Pane|top left of the screen]].
[[File:WME username level.png|right]]
Your rank appears just under your username as "Level #". To the left of your username and level is an avatar icon unique to your level. In the WME when you select a segment, the properties drawer will show you the name (and rank) of the editor who created and last modified the segment. The number in parenthesis after the name, is the editor's current rank ''(not necessarily the rank they were when they made the edit)''.
== Promotions ==
In the USA, rank promotions are evaluated based on a combination of related factors including;
* Editing skill and knowledge
* Editing quality
* Community involvement
* Proper etiquette in communication
* Mentoring participation
* Edit count
* Suspicious or damaging edits
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.
[[File:Formal mentoring 2.png|right|75px]]
The [[Mentoring/Formal/USA|Formal Mentoring]] program is a great tool to help you learn the skills and knowledge you will need to be eligible for a rank promotion. Being in communication with your SM and/or RC even before you are eligible, will also show you where you need to focus to become eligible for the promotion.

If you feel that you might be eligible for a rank promotion, please contact
your local management team including your [[State Manager/USA|State Managers (SM)]], and  [[Regional Coordinator|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).

| N/A
| Area Manager (AM) is a [[Roles_and_responsibilities#Area_Manager|role]] not a rank, however this role along with some higher roles e.g. State/Country Manager give the editor greater permissions that listed for their rank in this table. Area Managers (AM) can edit anything within their assigned area except objects locked by higher-level editors. Editors of any Rank can be granted AM rights, however in some countries there may be a minimum requirement before Area Managers are approved. Read the [[Area Manager]] section in the Wiki first before applying for an AM.
