I get excited when it goes up of course, but I don't really stress if it goes down. I'm here for the fun and to help people choose awesome toys. The perks of a high rank are great, but not the reason I'm here.
I might bake myself a cake when I hit 5.6. I've been at 5.5 for so long! I like websites where I can collect silly points and badges, so not moving up in ranks for months is killing me on the inside a little.
I definitely like seeing my rank go up but it is really something I don't pay too much attention to. I do get really excited when someone rates my reviews as extremely useful. Makes me feel good-- like I've done a good job
I used to get excited about it, especially when I was getting to certain milestones. I'm at 6.4 right now and honestly I can't see it going much higher. I'm just not ever going to be one of those people who can constantly pump out wonderful reviews to raise my rank up. I'm pretty content with where it is though.
I have gotten to the point where my reviews auto-publish and honestly I sometimes wish I had a second set of eyes going over my review before it posts. I wish we had the option to let an editor have it.
I also think some people, even if they have reached a rank high enough for auto-publishing, should be forced to have an editor still if their spelling is terrible like some that I have seen. (My opinion, anyway.)
I get slightly disappointed when I see my review get 4's instead of 5's on reviews I feel that I put a lot of effort into. For example, a long thought out review with pics where most of the people gave me 5's but one or two people gave me a 4. That ticks me off a little but honestly I don't care too much! Maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist. I'd love to know what it's missing. Most of the comments on my reviews are just "thank you" though.
I check my rank from time to time but not too often, I honestly like seeing my rank go up a point lately because I wouldn't mind getting to 6.0+ for the mentor program. But I am in no rush, otherwise I'd be pumping out a review or 2 a day

Rank just makes me proud of what I have done on EF.
For me, I think 'Cookie Monster Mike' said it best!
