Me either. Well, to an extent.
I've seen how rank is calculated but, idk. I've been at 5.1 for a while. I've only done three reviews though, but they've all been rated extremely helpful. I'm pretty active on the forums. A few days ago it popped up to 5.2 but the next day, and with no change in my usual activities, went back down to 5.1 again. It's been 5.1 since my first review. The additional reviews and their good ratings didn't put a dent in it.
W/e. I don't really care about rank as long as whatever mine is tends towards the generally positive. I'd like to think I contribute in a positive way to EF, so.
Beyond that, I just want to be able to edit. I like proof reading a lot and I see reviews ALL the time with errors that bother me. And I know for me personally, I'm better at proof reading and editing other people's work than my own. I think that's because I know what I meant to say, so I tend to read what I meant into whatever it is I actually wrote without noticing a random improper punctuation, misspelling or typo.
