Depending on your region, points alone may be (or soon will be) only one of several criteria for advancement, for reasons including those alluded to above.
Rank3 is AM access, which you can ask anytime, but I strongly recommend that you do some quality edits and ensure what you are doing is really correct and then albeit you could ask for the AM yourself (it's different on self-managed countries), I'd still recommend that you'd introduce yourself at the forum and get to know other AMs and CMs and even get a sponsor or mentor for your AM access.
The trend is definitely toward emphasizing quality over quantity; eventually, even requests to become an Area Manager will no longer be granted automatically, but will depend on a number of factors.
