It depends on how good your explanations are. Some people make it at around 1000, some have to get up to 5000. The admins review your explanations and decide whether you become an editor or not. .

Personally, I was editored at around 3k, and modded at 10k.
I think the 2500 IQ mark is around average for editors, but keep in mind, your definitions should be:

  • Brief
  • Well-Worded
  • Accurate
  • Accompanied by relevant pictures
  • Linked appropriately, when possible
  • Following the Contributor Guidlines

If you do all of those things, someone will take notice of you, then you should be editored in no time.
Keep going, and if you’ve got good explanations, you’ll be noticed eventually.
Continue to contribute regularly, you’ll be an editor in no time!

I’d just like everyone to kno that I was editored at negative IQ, shattering the previous RG record. My editorship has been revoked since then tho

Psy you should try to edit other songs than your own. I think that was a problem Scopey had and he didn’t get editored until like 12k

Haha Red, you funny bastard. I actually got editored at 6k. I had no explanations of my own explanations untill after I got editored. Around 10 of my 480 explanations are for my own lyrics. I’m just saying.

You’re one-of-a-kind, IATG. We can’t compare regulars to you, nahmsayin.
