Becoming an Advanced Reviewer:
Community Vote -
Once you have submitted at least three (3) reviews of products you've already tried, you may request to be upgraded to an Advanced level reviewer. Your request goes live on the Community Homepage once it is submitted. Upgrade requests are the decided by the community over a 2 week period. You need to receive at least 5 votes to be approved for Advanced Level. Votes are based on writing quality and overall activity. During this time (and after!), you should continue to submit reviews of items you've already tried and be active in the forums.
If you do not receive sufficient votes in the 2 week period, your request is removed and you will be able to resubmit a new request after you have submitted at least 3 more reviews. This gives those who do not get enough votes the opportunity to improve their reviews and become more active in the community.
